Giving Thanks

We have so many things to be thankful this year, especially our wonderful family! We spent Saturday at my sisters new "farm" in Port Orchard, Washington celebrating Thanksgiving with the Bedients, as well as my dad, mom and her husband John. It was great to have everyone together, even if just for an afternoon. The food was delicious (thanks Rhianna!) and there were lots of great photo opp's with the cousins, the kittens, and the goats. We made holiday wreaths, watched football, and even squeezed in a game of Settlers. Who could ask for a better Thanksgiving?

Jenica's First Hike

The weather here has been amazing these last few days; Beautiful sunshine with hardly a cloud in the sky, so yesterday we decided to head into the Columbia River Gorge for a little hiking. Jenica got all bundled up in her very own Columbia jacket. It was a little big but kept her warm none the less. She slept through the whole first half of the hike while Rob packed her in the front pack, then she woke up for the way back so we turned her around so she could see what was going on and she was a happy girl the whole way back. We feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful part of the world!

A visit from Joi...

My best friend Joi came all the way from Las Vegas to visit us last week and meet little Jenica for the first time. It was so good to have her here, especially since Rob was away hunting for most of the week. We had fun relaxing, watching Office re-runs, playing Settlers of Catan, and of course playing with Jena. We're so glad you could come Auntie Joi. Come back anytime!
