Washington Good Times

Even though I am a little late in getting a blog going, I still wanted to show you what a good time we had in Washington for the two weeks  we were there.  We had a wonderful time sharing space at the Toolson's and Fluegge's.   We were well taken care of.   We saw Paul play in a couple of basketball games, and I was sure I took a picture, but since it wasn't there, I must not have.

 Christmas Eve at Becky's lovely decorated home.   Doesn't the table look lovely?

The "boys" enjoying themselves while preparations for dinner are taking place.

What a cute couple!  Doesn't seem possible they have been married 21 years.

Cousins getting ready for some Santa Bingo action.

 Let the game begin.

Becky checks out her winnings.  No, it wasn't some Hefty trash bags.

Family Photo time.  The Toolsons plus Kelly.

 Just two old folks enjoying themselves.

Now, that is a good-looking group of grandchildren.

The Fluegge-Richardson's plus Mia and Maddy.  Wouldn't be a family picture without them.

The day after Christmas we drove over to Seattle to get our first look at little Audrey.  She is even cuter in person.

It is too bad that we can't see the Richardsons more often.  Babies change so quickly.

Sean really enjoyed those chips and salsa.  He wasn't in a very good mood until the food arrived. I'm so glad we were able to get to Seattle to see David and family.  We spent the night with the Domans, who are always such great hosts.

Finally, we spent some time at the Kindrick's before going home.  The girls modeled their Christmas pj's and cute hats.

We had a great time.  We had good driving weather both going and coming home.  Only sad part was missing the family that couldn't join us.

By the way, we are still pondering what to do about our anniversary next November.  We keep changing our minds about the best plan.  More on that later.

It was so fun spending Christmas with you again. And not just because of the sugar cookies and cinnamon rolls ;)
Little Audrey looks like a doll - all of that black hair! You squeezed a lot into your visit.

Nice to see all your pictures. Now I'm very curious what you're cooking up for your anniversary this time.
