The Botanical Gardens in Bellevue with the Pence Family
I was pouring rain when we arrived, but thanks to Jenn's prayers there
was a halt in the rain for pretty much the exact time we arrived to when
we left - the power of prayer is amazing! It was still freezing, but at
least it wasn't raining!
That butterfly was really cool, as were all the flowers made of lights.
Christmas With My Family
My parents arrived Christmas Day evening and we celebrated Christmas the
next morning. Alyssa had so much fun with them and is always asking
where they are.
My mom curled Alyssa's hair and put a necklace on her. :)
Besides her kitchen, she did get a few other things - compliments of
Santa and grandma. I think we'll be able to give her that Disney snow
globe at least one more year without her catching on.
Here we are in our Christmas Jammies.
Playing in the Snow
As soon as my mom got here she was super excited to play in the snow.
The first few days went by and we never found the right moment to go
play outside. Just as the snow was on the melt we snuck out during nap
time to re-build a snow lady. We made a double sided snow lady that way
we could enjoy her through our picture window and so that our neighbors
could enjoy her as well.
This is the side I decorated.
