We're Baaack!

We came, we saw, we ate a lot of turkey! First off, I have to say that the Gods of Alaska Airlines smiled upon us this trip. On the way there I got an entire row in the very rear of the plane that had plenty of room for me plus 2 kids, it was great. However, I'm sure the people in front of us now officially hate The Wiggles since they had to listen to it for 2 hours (even though it easily entertains my kid on an airplane, I still really can't stand them). After that ride, we decided that there was no way we were going to get Haley to sit on our lap so we bought her a seat, took her car seat on with us and she slept a bunch of the ride. YES!

Anyway, the weather for the trip was great, we got to play outside, Haley got to be a jumping bean on grandma's trampoline, and just generally hang out - see below.
We also decided to let Kale finally eat some cereal (read: Mom was tired - literally - of waking up at 1 and 4 in the morning to feed the kid), plus, Grammy got to get in on the action. He LOVED it and couldn't get enough, quite the difference from his big sister. I was a little torn since the doc said no food till 6 months, but the little guy was starving to death (clearly).
We also took the kids Christmas Jammies pictures. There are these - they say "What Santa doesn't bring me, Grandma will" and we have others in the jammies that match cousin Alex.
Other highlights of the trip: going on not one, but TWO dates, we got to go to dinner with some old friends, and even see the latest Bond flick (to have an insight into my life, since I was pregnant with Haley I've seen the other Bond movie "Casino Royale" and the most recent Harry Potter - I don't get out to movies very often - good babysitters are hard to find). We did a lot of family breakfasts and introduced Jeff's family to Organic Pancake Batter from a whip cream can (check it out, it's called Batter Blaster and can be found at either Costco or by the eggs in a grocery store).
