Holiday Season

I have been bad about updating.  My parents visited the end of October, which was a lot of fun.  This was their first time to Washington!  We had our open house/ reception on Halloween, so they helped out with that.  We decided to take them to Montnomah Falls in Oregon (pictured below). 


Right after that, we got two cats from Chris' parents.  They were strays that were hanging around.  Rigby, the one on the left, has been with them for almost a year and Marvin for only a short time.  They are both males and in love with me, which doesn't bother Chris so much.


Thanksgiving came and went in a flash.  My sisters visited me that weekend.  It was really nice to see them again.  This time it was Kimberly's first visit to Washington.  Some of the highlights of their visit were seeing New Moon and going to Forks and La Push.  We also went to the rainforest and saw the tallest Spruce tree. Kimberly put up those pictures on Facebook.  I accidentally forget my camera.

And lastly, this past weekend Chris and I went down to his parent's house (about 2 hours away) to get a Christmas tree and take a family photo.  We chopped down our Christmas tree from a tree farm (actually, I just watched and took pictures)!  It was my first time and was really neat except for the cold weather. 


That night it snowed a little bit.


That next morning we headed back home and set up our tree!  Marvin loves sitting under the tree during the day.  They basically leave the tree alone.  Although, Rigby really loves the ribbons on the presents.
