So yeah, I started the month thinking I was going to blog every day until Christmas, but not surprisingly I totally haven't kept up with that. But here's what's happened since I last updated.
On Friday the 11th I chaperoned the girls' field trip to an edited-for-school-children-on-field-trips performance of the Nutcracker at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue. Olivia really liked it but Kayley said it "didn't make sense". I didn't get any pictures but this one was taken at school on a different day (Olivia wore a nice outfit to the actual event). That evening we went to my work group's Christmas party.
On Saturday the 12th we did our annual drive around the neighborhood to look at lights. I just love doing that.
The girls had a Girl Scout meeting/Christmas party on Wednesday night and they went caroling in the neighborhood. Fun.
On Thursday there was another work party, this one for the entire Engineering Department. That one is earlier and company sponsored, so our first drink and food was paid for. Yippee. Spouses are invited but Paul had to be home with the girls.
Today we are heading to Seattle to check out the gingerbread houses at the Sheraton Hotel and ride the carousel at Westlake Center. I used to love going to Seattle around the holidays but since the girls have been born we never have.
