it's over and i miss it.

Well - The Riffle extravaganza has come and gone and the memory is sweet. We had an absolute blast hosting this year in Port Ludlow and hope to do so again for many years. The Lynnwood Riffles and Reno Riffles joined us in our celebrating and it was just great times all around. For starters - it was white and beautiful. It actually snowed the day they arrived.

We had great conversation, laughter and food the entire time. This has by far been one of my favorite Christmases, and Tucker was definitely in agreement. I can't wait for many more holidays with my in-laws, I love them all. Oh and Randy - I think you left your vagisil in the bathroom.

Decembery goodness

Well it seems as if life has finally caught up with us. We have been so busy with Tucker, the house, the new job, and I have been working 2 days a week as well. Whew. I fear that we will turn around and it will be Tucker's high school graduation.

Thanksgiving was interesting - holiday family drama made me feel as if I was in some sick movie. My dad had shoulder surgery the week before so he was out of commission and I stepped up to the plate to help my mom with hosting. It was a great group however I really missed my sister and her boyfriend. The morning following Rex and I packed up the car at 4 a.m. and drove to Oregon to visit the beach again. (Have I mentioned how much we love that place?) It was the best black friday EVER.

December is great, we have had most of our shopping done for a while so the pressure of gift buying is minimal and we can just enjoy each other. I will be hosting the Riffle's this year and I can't wait to have our house full with kids and laughter.

Last night was our first snow - and Tucker's first ever (isn't that a weird thought) so we must be off to enjoy, I'm sure I'll have more photos to post then - for now please enjoy these sweet moments.
