A few weeks ago, Anna called from Fred Meyer to tell us the Wienermobile had pulled up so Nate and I hurried to get in the car so that we could snap a few pictures of this sweet car.

Winter Storm 2012

This has been an exciting week for us on the western side of Washington. It all started Monday when the snow came and then more snow came on Wednesday. Then today more problems came when the freezing rain came causing the weight to be too much for trees. The power has gone out a few times, school has been cancelled all week along with work, and the governor of Washington said it was a state of emergency because of all the trees falling, icy roads, roads closed, etc. I am very grateful that I am still pretty far from my due date because I might be having a baby at home if I went into labor.

On Monday we had some fun at the park with Scott, Petyton, and Mikey sledding and throwing snow at each other.


This morning after all the ice a tree in the front yard split and is tempting to fall completely on the cars parked on the driveway.

Nate took this picture which shows how much ice there really is out there.

Seattle Trip

On Saturday, Nate and I joined up with Jeremy and Katie and went to the Seattle Temple and then toured some favorite sights in Seattle. It was alot of fun!

After the temple we went to Red Robin to eat and then looked around at the Curiosity Shop which is always entertaining to see and I also got a free sample of some fudge which is always a plus.Then on our way to Pike's we stopped to take some pictures of the famous gum wall. Jeremy and Katie were brave enough to touch some of the old gum but that grossed me out a little too much.
At Pike's we walked around, listened to some music, and saw some fish being thrown.

I even got to ride the pig for the first time.

We then went to Discovery Park and got to see the beautiful sound and a cute little lighthouse.

Christmas Break

We spent Christmas Break in Firth and the fun started a few days before Christmas and my friends had a baby shower for me. It was fun to chit chat with the girls again and get some more fun baby stuff.

Then on Christmas Eve we enjoyed the evening at Aunt Sue's and then stopped by Derek and Amy to see the girls in their new pjs and then we got home and opened our own pjs.

Santa came!

Santa even brought baby girl Smith a gift.
Santa also brought a new doll house for the girls for Grandma's house.

We were spoiled this year and are very grateful for all the we recieved.
Then we went to Hidden Treasures in Shelley. It was Nate and I's first time going and this store is so much fun to look around and we could have spent alot more time browsing around.

One night we went to Derek and Amy's and decorated some graham cracker houses.

We spent a lot of time with family and playing with the girls. Juliette loves her Uncle Nate!

We also played lots of different games during the few weeks. Nate and Erika played 70 games of Greed and averaged their scores at the end- Nate was the overall Greed winner.
One night we did Dance Revolution at Derek and Amy's with their new Kinetic. It was pretty entertainig and lots of fun!

We stayed up on New Year's Eve to see the ball drop in New York City and welcomed in the new year.

Most of the football games were on the 2nd of January so we made lots of food to snack on all day while we watched all the football that we wanted. I even had fun making the blackberry pie.

Amy and Nate made a fort and Nate was amazed that my growing belly fit through the "front door".
