Psalm 51:10

video

found it!

found the camera cord!
last weekend we went down to magnolia village to see the lighting of the Christmas tree. unfortunately it was raining, but we didn't let it stop us...the girls were freezing by the end of the night, but it was a fun night with friends.


 Raven and Eliana weren't too sure about this Christmas tree thing in the rain...in the cold...but they perked up when we got cookies and candy later :)

 ...and this week... we got snow!

snow!

Well, we were dumped with snow yesterday...which is unheard of for Seattle. Its very hilly here, and there are no plows or salt trucks to clear the roads. Living on the corner at the bottom of a fairly steep hill, we witnessed several accidents on the corner here. I don't think anyone was hurt from what we could tell.
Raven has LOVED playing in the snow...and I love that it provides hours of entertainment! I have some pictures, but I can't find the cord to upload them...soooo...pictures will come as soon as I find the cord.
As of now, we are staying warm and cozy in our home.

...to be continued.

random-ness

I was just looking through some pictures from over the last couple months that I thought I would share. Our girls are just so cute! They just love to play!
 Carving pumpkins with Daddy!
We will pretty much give her anything to stay in her crib. This is ridiculous, we know.


Just an afternoon at our favorite beach!

Playing guitar with Daddy! (We have a similar photo like this with Raven)
 
Hitting the guitar is much more fun!

Halloween ...a little late

I just realized I never posted anything about Halloween. Mom brain has been my excuse lately, so I'll just go with that. Let's see...what did we do... First we went to the community center to decorate pumpkins and play at the carnival in the community center. Raven and her bff were princesses. They pretty much held hands the entire time! Here is a little video...

Later that week we had a fun Halloween lunch at our friends house! There were massive amounts of kids, and a bit of chaos...but it was so fun!


Later that day we went to Magnolia Village to Trick or Treat. They close off the streets and the businesses hand out candy. Tons of people go to this, and it was actually a really warm sunny evening...which is nothing like what it usually is this time of year. Raven changed her clothes about a hundred times that afternoon, so I finally put a flower headband on her and called it good (I found out later that she also had 3 skirts on!) Hazel's costume was an easy little jacket...she was a sweet little butterfly!



Raven and Eliana held hands the whole time!

Hazel and her future boyfriend are in the stroller behind Raven :)

Raven's Bible Verse

We have been working on memorizing Bible verses (for both Raven and myself). I have been amazed at how quickly she can recite this...here is a little video. She whispers part of it, so you might not be able to hear.
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right" Ephesians 6:1
