Merry Christmas!

Cookie and water left for Santa on Christmas Eve. Dorian said "Santa would want water not milk." Like milk for Santa was crazy talk.
Santa must have been happy because he left alot of presents!
Dorian smiling with his pressies!
We headed over to Grandma and Papas and it started to SNOW!
And of course with snow you have to have snowball fights!
Our Christmas was excellent. To top it off we had about an 1'' of snow and the kids loved it!
Dorian says "I got everything I wanted!". We had a yummy dinner at grandma and papas house and had a wonderful day with family. Dorian got to have a snowball fight with his cousin and even got his Aunt and Papa good with some snowballs.

Here are more photos!

Zoo Lights!

We headed out alittle after 4pm to the Portland Zoo on Friday. The drive to the zoo was quite as Dorian actually fell asleep in the car (insert holy moly face here!) and it was lucky he did as the traffic was awful, it took us an hour to get there! He woke up just before getting to the zoo and the parking lot was full so we had to go drive to over flow and catch the bus to the zoo which was very exciting and COLD. Once we got to the zoo we were set because we get to go to the express lane because we have a zoo membership. Then we walked through out the zoo and saw all the beautiful lights. It was set up different than last year and new things were added. We had such a great time!
On the way back the bus driver gave us a real ride, he was a bit crazy with the wheel but we made it safely back to the car and it gave Dorian something to talk about all the way home.

Gingerbread house

We went to a community gingerbread house making for the 2nd year.
We all 3 got to go this year and it was alot of fun and Ash and Dorian made a 2 story house.
Dorian had to carry it out to the car and we were so afraid it would fall off but he did it all on his own!

Cutting down our Christmas tree!

Here we are cutting down a tree! We had alot of fun even though it was raining and cold.
We went with mom, Bud, Matt (Erin's brother) and his girlfriend and daughter.
At the tree farm they had a cute little store with a wood stove inside with hot chocolate and cookies. They had 3 dogs wondering around inside and 1 was following Dorian all around as he wanted Dorian's cookie!
