A Weekend of Christmas Parties

This weekend we attended both of our work parties, then had our own party on Sunday! Naturally, we hosted an Ugly Sweater Party. We played games, ate yummy food, and listened to Christmas music.

A fun filled week and weekend!

On Tuesday, my mother in law flew out to spend Thanksgiving with us. We all made dishes for our meal which helped immensely! We took every opportunity to celebrate both turkey day AND Christmas   Including picking out and decorating the tree, Christmas shopping, watching Christmas movies and putting up all the decorations and making a gingerbread house! We also made time to see Frozen which was so cute!!

Mount Rainier

Over the weekend, a friend of ours went up to Mount Rainier with us take our family photos for this year's Christmas cards. Riley had so much fun making snowballs and running around in the snow. It was absolutely beautiful up there, and we got some great shots! Can't wait to share them!

My Sister's Wedding

So the main reason we went out to Chicago was to see my sister get married! She had a lovely ceremony in the beautiful Union Station. After that we went to the French Market down the street for brunch. Later in the day we went to her reception at the Garfield Park Conservatory. What an awesome venue it was! Riley was the life of the party dancing all night long. We had so much fun. Congrats Stefanie and Tim! 


Family, food and fun!

On our second to last day in Chicago we headed over to my sister'a house for her open house. Riley got to play with her cousin McKayla who is only a week older than her! As we walked to the train back to downtown, Riley jumped in piles of leaves aa we enjoyed looking at the beautiful architecture of some of the houses. I tried to take a family photo of us before leaving Stef's house but she obviously was not having it! By the time we got to the train though, she was really excited. Riley also got her morning hot chocolate ;) what a spoiled little girl!!!
