Washington Wonderland

Thanksgiving was in Washington this year and we were able to be there for 9 days! 
We had A LOT of fun, and A LOT of SNOW! 
Here's a photo album of our adventures....

The beautiful Thanksgiving dinner
(the meal wasn't actually done at this point, the kids just decided to eat "Hook" style). haha

The celery sticks that were eaten before the meal. My bad!

Met the newest member of the family. Welcome Rick!

Dancing after church. We went to Steven Daniels ward growing up.

Went to the Columbia River Temple with Vern and Nicole

We celebrated birthdays with each of us having our own cake/pie.

Games, Games, Games! Mainly Monopoly this year.

Snow, ice, sledding, shoveling, fro yo, and all things cold this Thanksgiving

We saw a lot of stinkin Lincoln

Bird watching and a lot of picture taking

The birthday boy!

Marisa the beautiful! She let me straighten her hair.

We certainly enjoyed sleeping in on this trip! (So did Michael).

Thanks Radfords for a great vacation.

Remember how I don't have to work until next NEXT monday?
Remember how I get to spend Thanksgiving in Washington?
Remember how I don't have to put braces on anyone for 11 days?
Remember how I love Steven Daniel? (And how he doesn't have to do homework for 11 days).
Well I remember.
And I'm VERY thankful. We are taking a much needed vacay from school and work and we will get to spend day and night together. I sure love those days.
Happy Thanksgiving (eve, eve, eve, eve, eve, eve).

p.s Christensen Fam-you will be missed dearly. And I know you will miss me even more. But you will get through this hard time. You can call or text if you feel the need to hear from your fave red head!

I'm not even going to pretentd that we look good! We struggled with our costumes this year because we had so many options of what to be. (Orphan Annie and Daddy Warbucks, Marge and Homer, Mario and Princess Peach, Orthodontist and nerd, Bonnie and Clyde, etc). Time caught right up with us and I still hadn't made any costumes. So our last resort was to dress up as things that we love!! haha Which is why I am a Moose (a Christmas moose) and Steven Daniel is a Wildlife photographer! ha. I think we're pretty believable and we sure had a lot of fun!

I made the hooves out of plastic cups, the antlers out of cardboard and the body out of literally 7 layers of sweatshirts and vests. Dan already had his outfit, just added one of my Dads old hats!

Our pumpkin that desperately needs braces.

Family party at my moms house! What cute/scarry kiddos

Max looking at my strange antlers! sooo cute!!!

Don't worry, I already have next years costumes picked out. And you WON'T be disappointed! :)
