Thanksgiving was magic! We ate delicious food with both families and enjoyed a fun pie night, Black Friday shopping, games, movies, and Christmas decorating! The boys loved the food and especially the pie! Wells would not stop chatting and repeating the words everyone said, and Graham was in cousin heaven. The perfect start to my favorite season.


Graham loves his bamboo plant, doing crafts with neighbors, and school! Wells loves the slide, photos, and learns new words all the time. We decorated for Christmas which was so magical, with Christmas music and hot cocoa. We are loving every minute of this season.


THE BEST HALLOWEEN! The boys had the best day with crafts, treats, a great show, and then COSTUME TIME. We pulled the fire pit out front and had donuts and candy. The boys went around and got tons of candy and we had SO MANY trick or treaters. It was so fun to meet so many of our neighbors and see the ones we know. Graham was stoked to be the Evil Emperor Zurg and Wells was the CUTEST Buzz Lightyear. Graham got to wear his costume to art class and to school where he got to play fun games. Wells is getting more and more talkative everyday, and is SO opinionated. I just love them both to pieces and feel so lucky that they are mine!


Randy let me run away with my best friends to Seattle for the weekend and it was truly magical.

We grabbed some Shake Shack in the airport, watched Sleepless in Seattle on the plane, and hit the ground running once we were in Seattle! Right to Pike’s Chowder and then immediately to the Space Needle. It was SO beautiful and so cool to see the whole city and the harbor from up that high. It was cold but we decided to be brave and get scooters and head to the Ferris Wheel. It was SO beautiful and so insanely fun to see the city at night! We then went to get Din Tai Fung which was AMAZING. So delicious.

We hopped into the hot tub for just a minute and then it was off to bed! In the morning we went right to the Pike Place Market and wandered around, shopped, ate delicious macaroons and pastries, and shopped some more! We went to the CUTEST place called the Pink Door for lunch and it was SO good. Scallops to die for! Then it was off to the Museum of Pop Culture which was when I missed Randy the MOST because he would have loved it! After the museum it was more scooter rides to go to the harbor and enjoy the beautiful views. Then up to get some pizza for dinner, and of course, more dumplings in bed!

The morning we had to go we went all-out to get our matching pajama photo, ate a delicious brunch at the cutest place, and then it was time to get bak to the real world!

I’m forever grateful that moving to our neighborhood has meant finding friends who are so incredible. I love them so much and I am so lucky I conned them into being friends with me!
