Boy, the holiday season was a blur. The kids got out of school three days early due to two days of snow (the got out the first day because of the THREAT of snow – please), I went to Bellingham to get Barbara (my mom) because of the lousy road conditions in Seattle with all the snow and ice and we were lucky enough to have her for some extra days. Unfortunately, Carl (my dad) was unable to come up to share Christmas this year and we have yet (on Jan 7th) to connect with Michelle’s parents and brother yet because they couldn’t come up on Christmas day due to the weather. Anyhow, lots of fun time with the new puppy Lucy (black lab), her sister Carly (the blonde one) who we puppy sat while the Axtel’s were in Florida and a great trip to Mazama (next post). Enjoy the snaps!
