We had a blast welcoming the New Year with friends. We especially enjoyed playing Dirty Minds where we all did our best to cleanse our minds and think Platonic...which seemed to be easier for the ladies. Happy 2010 All!
Christmas is truly a special time with loved ones. There are so many events an preparations that pass way to quick.First pictures of the Christmas Season. With the pups too! So much love pictures show...which can at times be deceiving being the way they battle with one another. Thank goodness pictures capture all the good :)

We had a great time spending Thanksgiving break with friends on Orcas Island off the coast of Washington. My mom was kind to let us stay at her prestige vacation rental home. The surroundings were breathtaking. It truly was a restful and relaxing vacation with quality time spent together. Day 1 - Visiting the Seattle Fish Market. So cool.
