Chicho & Phil !

Finally, some wedding photos!
I hesitate to share the photos as I only took about 12 photos and these were the best. As it turns out, it's hard to take photos while holding and entertaining children?!

Stormy ferry ride to the wedding (it was snowing & quite windy).

Friends, who sat across from us! The decorations were amazing!
There were lights and snowflakes strung throughout the entire hall. There was a snow globe on the front stage that everyone got to stand in and have their photo taken. The tables all had personalized party favors adorned with crochet (by the bride AND groom) snowflakes. The center of the table had winter branches that were decorated by blue & silver ornament balls and a silver glitter ribbon wove through the twigs. The winter wonderland illusion was accomplished!

Dancing the stage between ceremony and reception!

The new couple's First Dance!

Without hesitation, CC said her favorite part of the wedding was her "circle friend dance with Chicho and Graci".

Congratulations You Two!

Carpe Diem ?

I'm not a writer. But I like to read.
A post title caught my attention today. I read it. I loved it.
I want to share it.
"Don't Carpe Diem"
(great title)

See, I LOVE LOVE being a mommy! But, when I'm honest with myself and others. I don't always enjoy it. It's difficult to admit. There's a moment of panic that washes over me. I know I should love it because I'll wake up tomorrow and all will have vanished. I'll wish it back.
Truth is... some days it's SUPER tough being Mama!
Anyway, this post has freed me... at least for the moment!

A Kairos moment today! Her laugh is magical!

Seattle Snow!

We have to be able to laugh at ourselves, eh?? :)
Plus, the music has a teasing comic tone!

Ski Day!

Can you tell I'm FROZEN?? The chair had been stopped for 15 or so min and it is a 20+ min chair lift even if it doesn't stop. At least the wind wasn't whipping at us! Brrrrrrrr!

We LOVE Snow Week!

Super Amazing Week!
We had such a great time with friends and family! C skated for the first time, skied and fell in love with sledding! G walked in snow for the first time (found that challenging), went sledding, but ultimately preferred being pulled in the sled or packed on mama's back. The girls were thrilled to have Claire along for the fun! The photos are in no particular order and are generally self explanatory.

Singing, Dancing & Laughing!
