Here are some pics from our adventures in Spokane. Actually, the pictures don't show any evidence of adventure. We enjoyed spending our time with family, and I enjoyed not cooking every meal or worrying about cleaning my house. (Ha! Funny story about cleaning. We were snuggling in our bed with the girls this morning and I informed M that it will be her birthday this month. She said that she was going to get me a present and Kj declared, "Probably something to do with cleaning." I laughed so hard. It was a very perceptive and appropriate comment.) J got to go shooting twice, so he had a great time. The girls LOVED playing with their grandparent's toys. Kj loves the snow, and J helped them build a snowman. Sadly, I didn't get any pictures of my sister and her family, but I am very, very glad they were able to come over for a few days. Family + holidays is a wonderful combination.
M adoring one of the cats, Cow, I think.
Kj played outside a lot, despite the chilly weather. She loves animals.
Who doesn't love a naked baby shot?
My sis-in-law. Her hair cut is so cute!
M snuggling a pillow that Goombaw made. She also made the kids hooded towels. Thank you Goombaw!
Our little twin cousins. The girls had a lot of fun playing with them.
Visiting my Grandma Catie. She is 89 years old. Kj is hiding in the curtains in the background.
The girls trying on their capes I made them.
The snowman. Sadly, he didn't last long. The snow was already melting when they made him.
