Christmas Cheer! We've been enjoying this Christmas Season with many of our friends & family. Rob's favorite gift yet was to attend today's Seahawks game with his boss. Lucikly they pulled out the win- hopefully something they're able to continue! Also this week we hosted our annual fondue party (a smaller crowd this time). Carter enjoyed the chocolate fondue much more than the cheese... you'll see how much below! We also went to dinner at Rob's brother's house this week, a great time spent with family. We've had a packed calendar (as usual), but it's all been such fun! We're hosting Rob's family on Christmas Day and my family the weekend following, more photos to come!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas! Today we found our christmas tree, we enjoyed our time with good friends, Chris, Danielle & Emma. We cut our tree down and came home to enjoy the fall of 3" of fluffy snow! Last weekend we went hiking in a local park, it was cold, but nice to get outside! We had a great Thanksgiving, Rob's parent's hosted. We enjoyed time with his family. We wish you and your families a wonderful Holiday season!

Caribbean Cruise 2007
We just returned from a wonderful 5 day cruise to Key West & Cozumel. We were on the Carnival Freedom, a brand new ship on it's inaugural cruise. We had wonderful weather and really enjoyed the relaxing vacation away. We sailed out of Miami, but had a few days there to enjoy Miami beach and the everglades. While in the Everglades, we got to hold a 4 year old alligator- you can't tell that I'm totally freaked out in the picture, but I was about to drop the thing!!! We got back to Seattle this morning, home to cold weather and rain. The sunshine was sure fun while it lasted!

Autumn in Seattle
We've certainly had our share of rain this fall, but between the showers we've been able to install our back lawn. After tilling, transporting soil, rolling sod and adding a few trees, Rob had a couple of days invested in the project. It looks great, now we just need to add a fence & a patio. More to come!!! Today people moved into the last open house across the street, we've got a full neighborhood now (our street anyway). They are framing the last few houses of our develpment, and are on track with completing 83 houses in 1 year. We've enjoyed meeting all the different people around us. October has brought us time with friends celebrating birthdays & baby showers. We also got to see Chris Cornell in concert last week in Seattle.

Our Third Anniversary was this week, we celebrated by none other than a Mariner's Game! My wonderful co-workers planned a surprise "Happy Anniversary" message on the reader board! Unfortunately we didn't win, but had a great time with friends an my incredible husband! We also had a delicious crab dinner at home to commemorate our three years together. Check out the size of those legs! Last weekend we hosted an open house and had so many wonderful friends come visit! We are so incredibly blessed! Here are a few pictures of our wonderful day. Aunt Betty from New Zealand came to visit us earlier this month. We had a great time hosting her in the Seattle area! One of her highlights, was a great time at the horse races. At age 87 she won at more money than Rob! We also had a nice time visiting with her 2nd cousin from Canada at lunch in LaConner. It was a wonderful visit, meeting her extended family. We were sad to see her go, but enjoyed her time here!

There's No Place Like Home!
We are officially homeowners! After a big weekend of moving, we are very close to being completely un-boxed! With help from wonderful family members and friends, we had a very smooth move. We've already had a couple of very cute little visitors who think our house is pretty fun too!
