We've had a busy week here in Seattle, and unfortunately Kirsten and I have been sick for all of it... yet another cold in our house. Fortunately we're on the upswing now and the girls seem to have dodged it other than runny noses. Yesterday evening we celebrated our own new little family's Christmas with opening presents and a visit to the Bellevue Botanical Garden Christmas Lights display. The girls were thrilled with opening presents and are beside themselves with exploring all their new toys and outfits. The lights were really incredible too, despite a fairly steady rain. The girls loved being outside and seeing all the sparkly beauty. It's funny- Kirsten and I had talked about going out to see these lights for the past several years and never made it. Now that we have babies to share it with, we're finally motivated enough to make the trip out there! Merry Christmas to you all!
