We had a CRAZY (long, cold, difficult) winter this year. It snowed and iced several times across several months. It seemed like it would never end. This was the beginning of it so, of course we hurried outside to enjoy the beautiful snow in our own backyard. Little did we know it would snow MUCH more not long after this. They said it doesn’t snow here. Psshhh.. yeah. It always seems to snow or dump weird weather storms when Brian is offshore for work. George is so funny in the snow – it makes him super frisky and he pounces everywhere. You can’t help but laugh! Brady thought it was a good idea to eat the snow off the TRASH CAN. ??? Here are some favorite shots from the backyard.

We enjoyed our second Christmas morning in Portland. I’m so grateful Brian’s schedule had him home for Christmas! I was about 2 months pregnant in these photos. The first couple are from before our Christmas church service, followed by dinner at a friend’s house. Brady asked for a “red speed bike” for Christmas so, that he got (along with EVERYTHING else from the grandparents!)  I *thought* I took a video with my big camera, but I guess not. Ill try to piece meal the iPhone videos and put something together. It’s always such a weird balance to try and photograph the memories, but also be present and enjoy the memories from Christmas morning!

I’m playing catch up on personal photos and blog posts now that I’m on official “maternity leave/baby watch”.  In November (2016), about a month after I learned I was pregnant and Brian had just come home from a 3 week offshore hitch, we headed to our favorite beach spot for the day. It was one of those great spontaneous beautiful beach days. I’m SO grateful for the proximity we are to the gorgeous Oregon coast (1.5 hours).  We stopped at the cutest little bakery/coffee shop near Cannon Beach called Sea Level. I enjoyed a nice London Fog, Brian had a latte, and Brady a hot chocolate. We also all shared a big cookie with our picnic that we packed. Even though I was feeling a little yucky at times, it was a chilly beautiful beach day.  Once the sun started setting, I nestled up against a nice big piece of drift wood and covered myself in Brian’s jacket while I watched them play (and of course, took pictures.)
