Oh the places we've been!

Hi family and friends! Sorry about the picture strike. I just can't seem to find the time to sit down and blog anymore! Eden is done with naps, therefore no 'me time' in the day, and unfortunately Ronin still needs me in the night, so no 'me time' in the night either. It's a good thing I'm so crazy about them, otherwise I'd be complaining. Life is good, busy, but good! I was going to post more pictures (believe it or not- even though it's 1:27 am) but the blog is telling me there's an error with the autosave- so I'm not going to risk it by trying to add more.
We had a fantastic Christmas break staying in Portland, doing whatever we wanted. So here is some of what we've been up to. Where to start...

The basketball game. Our sweet friends Mike and Amber invited us to his staff Christmas party and even let us bring these two along. We had the best time! Great people, yummy food, oh, and did I mention the box seats! I don't know if I can ever go back to regular seats again! Eden loved being able to run around- and she was so cute cheering for the Trailblazers!

Next stop: The Stepping Stone Cafe. We discovered this little jewel on the tv show Man vs Food. Why would we wait outside in the rain just to eat at this place...? One word...
MANCAKES! A pancake fitting of its title. It was huge, and so delicious!
Here we are at Peacock Lane. It's a street where everyone puts up tons of Christmas decorations. I know from this picture it doesn't look that busy, but it was CRAZY. People everywhere, and police, and strollers, and 'For Sale' signs.

Going to OMSI to meet Samson the dino.

Just me and my boy
Here we are at Zoo lights. There were over 1 million lights! It was awesome! Here's the classic 'take it yourself photo'. Ronin came too- he was sleeping.
Bundled all up in the chariot.
Oh, Dustin! He's so funny!
Choo choo!

We had snow! Just for a few hours. Eden and Dustin had fun building snowmen together. She was so excited, but sad that they melted a few days later.

My big little man! Isn't he so sweet?!
Just a cute picture of Dus and Eden.
And here's our favorite (and only, but still favorite) visitors.! We had a great time seeing Aunt Jess and Uncle Griff, even if it was only for a few hours.

Finally, we've reached the end! Here's the most recent picture of the kids. They are so fun!
