I haven’t made time to blog recently, since work has taken me to Fargo, ND, Spokane and Tacoma, WA in the last two weeks! Earlier this month in Fargo, it was below zero and closer to -10 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill! Fortunately, I dressed appropriately with many wool layers from Ibex, Patagonia and Smart Wool. It was pretty to see the snow from indoors. The sunsets are amazing in Fargo. Since Fargo, I’ve been writing lots of reports, but we did make time for….. the Hobbit. It was awesome! We saw it in 3D too.
Almost all the Christmas presents are wrapped and I’ve updated my Christmas List on Pinterest. Check it out!
Yesterday, Seattle woke up to a couple of inches of snow! This is pretty unusual and a nice treat. Our backyard looked like a winter wonderland. Luckily it all melted before my sisters, mom and my grandmother, Tootie went to the Nutcracker at the Pacific Northwest Ballet last night! It was a wonderful Christmas tradition to renew. It’s been awhile since we’ve all been together too. My sister, Katie and I, posed with all the Nutcracker statues after the ballet too. My favorite was the Rat King. Some of our other favorite family traditions include a White Elephant Christmas Exchange at my grandmother’s house, opening presents Christmas morning at my parents house and dinner at the Marriott with most of my extended maternal family! What are your favorite family traditions?
