Addie's Seal of Approval

Today Addie got to see the new house for the first time. She loved it. She sniffed every nook and cranny, jumped around like a puppy, and sat out on the front lawn - with her tennis ball - like she owned the whole street:

President's Day Sledding on Mount Hood

Emma, Allison, Kaitlyn, Holly

Beautiful day of sledding. We drove up with The Mansbergers, Heather, Kaitlyn, Allison and baby Louisa. The Mansberger's own the home we are currently living in. We are so grateful for their home and friendship! .

Heather's sweet tooth is as sweet as mine. We stopped at "The Doughnut" store to get a parking pass and doughnuts. She also came back with my NEW favorite hot drink.

Minty Snow Latte: Steamed milk with mint tea and sweetner (sugar or splenda). I was so happy to find out it was easy to recreate at home.

Girls eating doughnuts.
Allison and Emma - Both turned 4 in February

But I was not the only person taking pictures on the beach. There were at least 4 other photographers, some with tripods!

This was and article in the Orange County Register on Valentine's Day. The "Carol" in the story is my mom. Read the article here.

Room with a View

After the party yesterday, we went to the new house to drop off some stuff. While we were there, I managed to take a picture of the girls that kinda shows the view from the window of their room.

Kim and I are jealous of them. We might have to change room assignments... :)
