Snow in Washington

We got snow last night here in Bellingham! Although it wasn't more than a few inches, it was nice to see flakes falling from the sky rather than rain. In addition to the dusting we got, we are getting a lot of wind and it is very cold. Luckily we haven't lost power and hopefully we won't because that would make for a very cold Garner household. I love the snow though and it feels very Christmas like this morning. We have nowhere to go and I plan on doing some holiday baking to get me in the spirit even more.

Last night we also spent the evening babysitting for our friends, the Shaws. Jeff and Jeff have been friends since high school and they have four wonderful children ranging in in age from 11 to 2. Last year we watched the kids (2 boys and 2 girls) while mom and dad went to a Christmas party down in Seattle and this year we continued the tradition. They are great kids and we had a lot of fun playing video games, making play dough and watching A Christmas Carol. However, I had to laugh when at one point my husband and soon to be daddy made the comment, "I think we should just stick with two kids" (lately he has had in his head that we should have three). Four kids makes for a very busy and loud environment and while I am used to it from years of working with children, Jeff isn't as accustomed to the craziness. Luckily everyone went to bed easily and by 10:30 Jeff and I were sound asleep on the couch waiting for mom and dad to come home. The picture below is of Jeff being the victim to dress up. Doesn't he look thrilled? He really was having fun and just posing for the camera.
