Here's some pictures showing some of the fun we had during our Christmas break. We had a small gift exchange, went overnight to Seattle, did the Seattle Underground Tour and shopped downtown at the famous Nordstroms & Macy's. It was a great time together as family!

Here's just a few photos of the time we spent with Mary-Lynn & Dawid (my sister and her son visiting from Indonesia). It snowed during the first night they were here so it was a winter wonderland when they woke up. We took them skating - Dawid's first time and he did great! We had a fondue evening with cousins from the valley the last night they were here - and the first night Lorelle and Jake arrived. It was a wonderful time - so glad it was possible for them to stop by here for a few days before visiting the rest of the family in Ontario. (The last photo is at the SeaTac airport - a beautiful quartet dressed in Charles Dickens era clothing sang beautiful Christmas carols throughout the airport)

This past Nov. 5th was my Dad's 80th birthday so I flew out to Ontario to join the celebration. I arrived on a Friday and the following day we helped set up the JCS gym for a catered dinner. We had a beautiful time together - although we were missing my sister's family from Indonesia and mine back in Lynden. We had a photo booth set up where people had to set up a pose for each month based on when their birthday was. The plan is to design a calendar with these photos (and scanned in missing people) on each months page.
The following Sunday we served cake (& coffee) to the congregation after the first service. My parents have been in the same congregation all of their married life & it's a large church. It was lots of fun talking to people I had not seen in years. The following day my parents had family and friends over for morning coffee & I got to catch up with many relatives. So glad I decided to fly out and so thankful that God has blessed Dad with so many years! More great memories!

Vincent turned 3 on Oct. 15th. It was fun to see how he understood it was his special day - even though he wasn't always thrilled with the attention he got. After it was all over anyone who got a present or something special he would be upset with because "it's Vincent's happy birthday". It's hard being a kid... Here's some photos of gift opening and his little party with some friends.

October was beautiful - so we made sure we enjoyed the outdoors as much as possible. On a sunny Friday we set off to Stoney Ridge Farms to enjoy the animals, the pumpkins, apples and the corn maze with a group of friends. It was super busy there - but we decided to stay for lunch and by that time all the pre-schools seemed to have left and things were a little less crazy. The kids just loved it - especially the hay ride to the corn maze!!
