Have You Heard?

We're moving to Portland!  Yep, that's right, we're doing it again. I'm not too excited about moving again, but I am so happy that it's Portland.  We love the Pacific North West and there is no shortage of great companies in Portland for Chris, as that is the hub of his industry, so it's a great move for us. Bitter sweet --we loved Seattle and will miss our friends for sure.  We will settle into our new home mid February.

Here are the rest of our holiday pictures, this winter is flying by!

Christmas Eve with friends:)

One more picture before Santa comes!

And here are some more snow pictures from last week, it didn't stop snowing until Friday!!  We had a ton of fun!  Our street was used as the sledding hill by the entire neighborhood.  Both boys loved the sbow!

Happy Birthday to My Sweet Boy, Nicholas!

It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating Nicholas' first birthday and now he is FOUR!  I could easily let myself get emotional about how quickly time has gone and what a remarkable little boy he has become. Nicholas at 4 wants to be a fireman when he grows up and would like for his brother to be a trash man, his favorite color is red, his favorite animal is a cheetah (because they are the fastest runners), his favorite activity is probably swimming and his favorite book is called, "The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark." In pure Nicholas fashion we celebrated and we celebrated big!  We sung happy birthday to him on three different occasions over the last few days (Not including when we were in Portland two weeks ago where Ruby and Tessa also had a mini party for him.)  Geeze, this kid is loved!

We had a very small pool party for Nicholas on Friday where he takes swim class and invited 5 families followed by pizza and cup cakes in the aerobics room.  I'm so disappointed in myself that I forgot to take pictures of the kids in the pool, I guess we were having too much fun!

Happy Birthday

Several unsuccessful attempts at getting all of the kids together for a picture.

Round two was an impromptu snow day birthday party this morning at his friend Izzie's.  It has been snowing on and off since Saturday here which is very unusual and we are suppose to get another 10 inches tomorrow.  So nice that we live close by our friends, it was such a nice way to beat cabin fever!

 Izzie singing happy birthday to Nicholas, she helped her mom make the cupcakes!


 Christian thinks so too!

Round Three was tonight, just the four of us.  His favorite, pasta and cake!


Presents, Presents, Presents!

What a special treat for us in Seattle, an unexpected snowstorm leaving us with several inches already and it isn't suppose to stop until Tuesday!!

Perhaps getting snowed in will motivate me to finish uploading our holiday pictures, stay tuned!  Yes, that's right snowed in with only inches of snow, in Seattle they don't treat the roads leaving them treacherous for days.  That beats two feet in New Hampshire!
