We brought back a favorite drink from Japan--Chu Hi. It takes like vodka sprite with a splash of lemon in a can. Sarah and Kitty could wait to crack one open. Things got a little silly!

Favorite phrase while drinking a Chu Hi? "I high. Chu high?"
I LOVE my sisters!

Santa Claus!!!

I am too lazy and too behind on the blog to scan in the professional pics that are up close, but she did great! She wasn't all smiles and giggles, she just kind of stared at Santa and then said "ho ho ho!"

The Briscoes Arrive!

YEA!!! Lo-Lo, Anna, Aunt Kitty & Uncle John arrived!
We were all so excited!
The fun started right away!

First Big Snow!

Although Amanda had played in the snow a lot, she had yet to see it REALLY snow out so when it started snowing one evening, out we went for a quick view in her jammies and a coat!

More Great Grandma Time!

We got to see Great Grandma a lot this trip and it was so fun!

First Fancy Christmas Party

My little sweetie went with us to my parents' neighbors champagne and dessert Christmas party. It was so fun to get her all dressed up!

Amanda was so excited to be going to a dessert party with Cakes. She got LOTS of samples.

More Fun Outside

Making snowballs
Amanda LOVED the ornaments on the outside tree

Cozy with Great Grandma T

Amanda had so much fun with Grandma Troyer. They were singing silent night together. It was precious.

"Stranded" in Chicago

We landed in Chicago from Seattle the day of a HUGE snowstorm. Most flights were canceled so we were very blessed to get in at all. And, THANKFULLY, Sarah's boyfriend's Family lives 15 minutes from O'Hare. So, we were there for two days! Amanda had a blast and they spoiled us rotten with excellent meals and amazing hospitality!
