Hiking

Wow, a real winter!

Aargh, I hate it when I haven’t blogged since the dawn of time and I have to catch up like this. This time all I have to say to get caught up is “snow”. That’s right, even down here in Redmond we got so much of the heavenly white stuff that the world pretty much just stopped turning (well, at least the Pacific Northwest world). JK had to work from home for a week because we couldn’t even get our car out on the main road. We SKIED to the grocery store.

Back home

Skiing in da hood Back to the mothership!

On the first snow day we skied across town to gawk at all the cars stuck on the highway, and a camera crew interviewed JK for King 5 news – hilarious. It aired live and several people recognized JK from the clip as we made our way back to the house (you never forget those yellow pants).

Christmas dinner

So yes, we had a beautiful white Christmas – and even though this was our first Christmas without a visit from our families in Norway, we had a really good time with our little family of three.

Spoiled.

…and now that all the snow is gone down here, we can still go up to the mountains for skiing and snowshoeing.

Over the river and through the woods

Happy snowshoer

Washington really ain’t a bad place to live.

    Det er vel dette man kan kalle “winter wonder land”, misunner dere jeg.

    Kunne ønske vi fikk så mye snø her i Norge :o)

    Ikke verst å bli intervjuet på TV da, for å stå på ski. Tipper det ikke er den type ski som blir mest brukt i Redmond nei…..

    Ha en riktig god helg!

    LOVE these photos. THOSE ARE the cutest cookies ever! As for me – no winter in Phoenix. I hate to admit this, but I used the A/C in my car today.

    Asher was reading your blog, and when he saw Bobby and the cookies – he asked that I write to ask if those were “dog” cookies, and if we could have the recipe! :)

    That snow is amazing – I thought of you recently, since we have spent a lot of time agonizing over the weather in the PNW. (at work) Glad you guys were able to have fun in it!

    I agree with you 100% – things happen for a reason. I found this by accident and noticed that we have some things in common. Thats what I love about the Internet, every blog is like a box of chocolates :) Thanks – Great blog.

    I agree with you 99% but wonder if you have really looked at the whole picture. DOn’t mean to be critical just food for thought.

    Det finnes et ordtak som sier: «Skal du bli rik, må du tjene penger når du sover.» Spør
    du meg, er dette helt sant. For det er akkurat det
    jeg gjør. Teknologien er kommet langt, og
    med teknologien kommer mulighetene til å utnytte den til din fordel.
    Flere og flere bruker Internett, kjøper på nett og klikker på
    alt som er av linker. Men de fleste vet ikke at det faktisk er mange forskjellige
    muligheter for å tjene penger på Internett, og faktisk jobbe hjemmefra resten av livet.

    Og du trenger ikke noen utdanning eller spesielle kunnskaper for å oppnå dette, du må bare vite
    hvor du skal begynne.
