Christmas - Round 2 or 3 :)

My Christmas vacation is coming to a close and it has been a blur!  But a good blur!  Trips to Astoria for dinner and a movie with Jamee girl, decorating Christmas cookies at Gramma's house on Christmas Eve, lazy Christmas morning with mom and dad in our PJs, swims in the hot tub with the Meier clan, visits with our sweet Dave, hugs from Jan, laughs with the Weller crew and games, GaMeS, GAMES!!!!!  All of these things make my heart smile!  I love being home!  <3  I love Oregon!

Our yummy, delicious, HUGE Christmas steaks!

Our cute little tree :)

What better thing to do with a DingDong wrapper than make a snowflake? :)

Merry Christmas - Round 1!

After a slow start out of Dutch, I arrived in Portland on Friday morning.  Mom and Dad picked me up and we headed over the mountain to see the siblings.  Once we got there, I was happily surprised to see Leslie's face!!  She made a surprise trip from New York for Christmas!  Such a fun surprise!  I was able to get together with a couple of Cohort friends on Friday night, and then we had our family celebration on Saturday.  It was so nice to have everyone all together.  We ate ALOT of delicious foods and played games.  Lots of smiles and laughs.  :)
