Here are some awesome fun pictures from Christmas in Seattle! We had a blast! Here are a few things we did..ate, talked, ate, watched movies (Hairspray...REALLY CUTE), opened presents, ate, went to the Seattle Aquarium, went out to dinner (Azteca-YUMMY), made goodies, shopped (Value Village BABY!), got snowed on (yup, it snowed on Christmas Day!) went to the beach... Just to name a few. The kids got so incredibly spoiled by Grandma and Grandpa and also Uncle Danner....man they love him!!!! I hope all your bruises from Wesley are gone now Danner. Wes sure likes to wrestle and throw punches. Another highlight...playing with thier cousin Lucy! What a sweetie pie! Syd and Wes both got a handmade quilt/comforter from Grandma Banks...today Syndie said I love this blanket because it smells like grandma! So sweet!

So here is the picture of our window (inside and out) that we just got blinds for. It is such a huge window and so it is now nice to have some privacy, I also think they looks SOO nice!
Friday we went to Aaron's Christmas party at the Davenport Hotel (a really nice hotel here in Spokane). We ate YUMMY food (prime rib, chicken), talked, and danced. In this picture, these are our friends that are in our new ward and Aaron works with Bill. We hung out with them all night. It was way fun! We left before everyone got too drunk :0) Also our friends watched our kids overnight that night so we came home to an empty quiet house. It was sooo nice, but weird. We watched Man vs Wild (romantic eh?) and then went to sleep! In the morning we slept in, and then went shopping w/o the kids. MAN, I forgot what it was like to NOT have kids. It was fun for a night, but guess we will keep them! Thanks Sharps for keeping our rowdy kids overnight! They had a blast!

We have been so busy lately! I really like being busy, but I can't seem to keep up with everything!
We are settling in our house and totally love it. We have been busy doing fix it projects and organizing etc. It has been cold and snowy here so not much outside time. Syd still goes to her old preschool, even though it takes an extra 15 minutes to get there now that we moved. I think with all the gas being used, this week might be her last week there. I am sad because we love it!
Two Saturdays ago me and 3 friends went to the Broadway Play Wedding Singer! It was soo incredibly good and fun! It was just like the movie (some parts word for word) but just different songs. I love doing things like that, I feel so "educated" or "learned" when I do things like "FINE ARTS." They wouldn't let us take pictures inside but I will post a picture of us walking in the snow afterwards.
We have a huge window (122 inches) in our front room. We finally found some blinds that fit! Aaron put those up and they look soooooo nice. It is also nice to have a little privacy! I will post pics later.
We are liking our new ward. We had our ward Christmas party the other night. We had a Turkey dinner and got to meet some nice people!
My kids favorite movie as of this week is Honey I Shrunk the Kids. Do you all remember that movie? It is SOO 80's or early 90's, but it is funny. My kids ask to watch it everyday. It's nice because I can get a lot done while they watch. I will be quiet now...I can't stop writing! Have a nice week everyone!

So here are some pics of our recent snow fall, my mom and I organizing some books in our ugly looking basement, some new "christmas clothes" that grandma bought for the kids, us and decorating the Christmas Tree!! It was soo fun with my mom here. She got the house in order and spoiled my kids...just what grandma's do best!
