Addison's finally meets the snow...

After having one of the snowiest winters [so far] since we've lived in the valley, we FINALLY got Addison ready and went out and played in the six or so inches that we got in the last few days. We were a bit ill prepared, we had the snow suit and coat, thanks to my sister-in-law but we didn't have snow boots or gloves... so we improvised. Her baby Uggs went on, but they aren't water proof so Derek decided to wrap them with plastic bags to keep them dry. We also lacked gloves (because we are freakishly AWESOME parents) so we put two pairs of her fuzziest socks on her hands and did the same plastic bag/rubber band trick. Hey, it worked. We made a tiny snowman, which Addison tackled, Derek plowed me with snowballs [FAIL], and Derek tried to snow Addison how to make snow angels but they ended up just rolling around and being silly... it was a fun family moment, and I thought I'd share some of the pictures...

Here mom, I got myself dressed and I'm all ready to go back out and play!!

If you give a mouse a cookie...

... she will get frosting EVERYWHERE!!

Note to self - frosting cookies with a 15 month old is much more like frosting a 15 month old.

Um. It snowed.

I was supposed to go to Tri-Cities today to visit my bestest friend... Mother Nature had other plans apparently. I was going to leave around 10:30 or 11 so Addison could nap on the way down and then come home sometime early afternoon... the flakes started falling just before 10 o'clock and they never stopped. We're guessing we've got at least six inches now, we'll see what morning holds... Oh, and here are a few pics of Derek's new truck =]


Vancouver Weekend...

I had class in Vancouver on the 4th, so Derek and I decided to make a weekend of it. We let Addison with Grandma and Grandpa and headed south toward the [slightly] warmer and dryer weather. We spent most of the day on Friday doing Christmas shopping, had a AWESOME dinner at Claim Jumper, got a little lost thanks to my awesome GPS, and then got to lay in bed and watch a movie to round out the night. Saturday I spent four hours working on my Professional Certification and then we headed home to listen to the Cougs lose the Apple Cup. It was nice to get away for a night, just the two of us, and I love staying at the Embassy Suites... FREE COCKTAIL HOUR!!!!! :)
