holiday recap

After a brief hiatus, I am back here on the blog šŸ™‚

We had a great Christmas and New Year here in Spokane. Our house was filled with family and it was wonderful… My mother and father-in-law drove up from Bend and spent a week here with us. And, after some delay due to the stomach flu, sinus infections and some other unpleasant seasonal ailments, my brother and sister-in-law and their two boys also came up and stayed with us for a few days.

Highlights from the holidays include several delicious home cooked dinners (thank you Nani!), black light miniature golf, a hilarious game night, champagne on New Year’s Eve, a trip to Coeur d’Alene to see bald eagles, and (I’m sure the kids’ favorite) a game of laser tag.

I am so happy that 1800 miles away from the place we all called home for so long, we were still able to gather as a family and share the holiday together.

Now the house is quiet. Husband and I finished putting away all of the Christmas decor last night and things feel clean and fresh. I can’t wait to see what this new year brings.

And of course, here are a few pictures of Lincoln….

Merry Christmas!
