Taylor's White Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of our loved ones! We hope that the holiday season has treated everyone well. Taylor had a very busy couple of days, and is recovering with a long nap now as I type.

We spent Christmas Eve in Cascade Locks with my wonderful side of the family, spending the evening at Jenn and Ryan's cute home. (Aunt Michelle - we missed you so much and love you dearly, glad you are feeling better). It was a blast and very exciting for many reasons. We had an ugly sweater contest, lots of food and drinks, presents and Taylor's Great Grandma caught on fire. (Hi Gram - we're happy you're safe!).

Christmas day was spent with Trask's side of the family and we had an amazing day, starting with a huge breakfast together. While we were eating, we noticed that it was starting to snow - a white Christmas! As we opened gifts (McKenna and Taylor made a killing) the snow kept on falling, and sticking. Taylor got a pair of snow bibs and jacket from Nana and Pampa, so he got to put them to use right away, and boy was he HAPPY!! I have said it before, but this kid loves to be outside, and the snow is no exception. He loved me throwing snowballs at him, the harder I threw the snowball, the funnier he thought it was. What a good sport! He didn't want to eat the snow though - that is the first time EVER that he doesn't want to put something in his mouth! He also loved playing with Nana and Pampa's puppy, Toby... who kept him very busy. He loves that pup to pieces. We had about 2-1/2 inches of snow fall and it was so awesome that Taylor had a white Christmas.

Thank you all for making our holiday brighter! This was such a wonderful Christmas, and we are looking forward to what 2008 will bring!

I saw this cute picture of Taylor on kgw's website. He's going to be a big star one day! Glad you had such a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (I missed you all terribly). You, Trask, Taylor and Toby all looked like you had a blast in the snow! Thanks for sharing.
