Oh, hi there.
I’m afraid I have to apologize yet again. Time escapes me over and over. I can’t really complain about much, however. I am busy with work, which is just wonderful. Kirk is busy with his work, which is fantastic too. And, Maeve is lovely. She’s a sick little red fox, but she’s learning tons, speaking tons, and is an official 2 year old. Where does the time go? I thought you might enjoy a few pictures from Thanksgiving, Christmas, and some fun escapades.
Let’s go back to Thanksgiving. We were in San Francisco with family. I made this incredible pie, which was the biggest hit with Maeve.
It was sunny there in San Francisco– at least for that week. We soaked it in and visited the zoo where Maeve made friends with a monkey. I was thankful for the glass partition.
We also made it to the park a number of times. Of course, there was a tantrum on at least one occasion.
Maeve played well with her cousins. She is finally old enough to partake in the fun.
We bought Maeve this sweet tent so she has something to look forward to when we visit San Francisco.
When we returned to Seattle, I was eager to start getting ready for Christmas. I was even more excited to see Santa. Maeve seemed excited too until she actually got near him. At that point, she was no longer excited. She was terrified. It didn’t go any better than last year.
There were many art projects.
A kind person took a family photo for us when we went to pick up a Christmas tree. We were so thankful!
We took Maeve to Winterfest at the Seattle Center and to the snow for a fun sledding adventure. As it turns out, she is a snowbird.
Maeve turned 2!!!!! It was the highlight of our whole season and Maeve loved playing with her cousins best of all. This child is loved.
Happy New Year!
