Sayonara 2009!!

Where has the time gone! I can't believe how fast this year has come and gone! So much has happened and not much documented but here is an update from the past couple months...

Our Trip to Seattle

It was so nice to finally go away as a family for a week and actually get to spend some quality time together. Dean just recently finished helping out my brother renovate their kitchen, which took place on the weekends, so he has been gone a lot lately working. Besides the small project I volunteered him to help my dad with, we got to spend most of our time there lounging around my parents house, sleeping in, shopping of course, and visiting with family and friends.

Right outside my parents house the day after we arrived.


It may not look cold but it was freeeezing!


I forgot how pretty the autumn leaves are. Aya loved picking the pretty leaves up off the ground...she got a little carried away when she started scooping up some of the not so cute, dirty leaves off the ground and tried taking them in the house. She was a little bummed when I told her she had to leave those ones outside.


I love this picture for some reason. Kashus was a bit grumpy and whiney when we wouldn't hold him. He stood there about 20feet from where we were standing and pouted for about 10 minutes because he wanted us to come get him and hold him. So stubborn.

Deception Pass

Not exactly the most kid friendly place to go with three young kids but it was sure pretty to look at from afar!





Seattle Pacific Science Center

It was my first time there since I was in elementary school and the kids seemed to have a lot of fun! There was a dinosaur exhibit, a green house full of butterflies, and lots of other fun things to see. It was definately better than our original plan of going to the zoo...especially this time of year!


Giant chairs


The butterfly exhibit. There were supposedly over 10,000 butterflys fluttering around in the green house.




Aya and Kash at the bug exhibit with their cousins Maya, Karen, and Klair


Christmas Morning!

Justus is already 4 months old. He is such a chunk and is starting to look a tiny bit more like me everyday. I think so anyways. Still white as ever, but so was Kash at his age...so we still have hope. He is such a good baby though, so I must say I lucked out with #3! Heavenly father must have known what I could and couldn't handle with my crazy and busy schedule!
