Oh Oregon. It has been too long since we have been here last. It has been so much fun spending this month here. We have been outside, played with cousins, enjoyed Christmas festivities, and have taken in all the beauty that we can before we had back to West Texas.
Maggie has liked the colder weather for the sheer fact that she can wear her snow flake hat that Grandma Matthews made her and her mittens. I think she feels like Elsa when she wears them.
Sam made a new best friend, Lucy. I don't know if I can same the same for Lucy because as you can see, Sam loves to grab fistfuls of hair when they play together. His favorite is when the dog licks him, which is pretty gross.
Maggie has liked her cousins. She went to Rita's preschool one day and had a blast with the letter "K" doing kickball, eating Kix, making a kite, and making a kindness coupon. Her coupon was good for sleeping on the floor. I don't know where that came from.
One of the first things we did was visit the Zoo lights. It was quite impressive all the lights that they had up. Maggie even got to ride the train with Mike. I love carrying Sam around because he was my own personal space heater.
We cut down our own tree for a tree farm down the street. Kids had a blast being outside, getting a bit muddy, kicking over stumps, putlling off the needles, and running through the maze of trees.
We decorated the tree that night and drank eggnog.
