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.
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).
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.
…and now that all the snow is gone down here, we can still go up to the mountains for skiing and snowshoeing.
Washington really ain’t a bad place to live.
