USA or Bust!

Well I started writing about our visit to the US a while ago....and now it is mid-February, so here are a bunch of photos of our time in the US. Enjoy! :)

We celebrated Thanksgiving at my Aunt and Uncle's house. I didn't take many photos, oops!
Baby O with his cousins. This is the only photo where all four boys were looking at the camera.
My parents with four of their grandsons, pre-Santa photos.

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is going to brunch with this wonderful group of women from my Dad's side of the family. It marks the start of the Christmas season for me. I don't get to see most of them much and it is always nice to catch up with everyone.
Baby O and I spent a day in Issaquah, Washington with friends. We had lunch, went on a horse drawn carriage ride, sang Christmas songs and saw Santa (again).
My friend K, her son and her sister
This was Baby O's second time seeing Santa. We were trying to help K's son to take a picture with Santa. It didn't work, but we did get this cute photo. :)
Christmas Day
Christmas Day - My sister's family
Baby O had a lot of fun playing with his cousin.
Christmas with J's side of the family.
Opening presents, he was mostly interested in the paper.
There were cute homemade gifts like this sign holder. There were other signs too. AND there were two adorable toy boxes that I didn't have a chance to photograph.
Cousin K, maker of great gifts!
Climbing on Grandma J while she was trying to nap. One of them thought this was Great Fun! The other wasn't as excited :)
We had a fun get together before this cute couple moved away!
Two of our adorable hosts!
This is a little blurry, but I like it :)  

The moms from our PEPS group went to a painting class. Look at those masterpieces!
Baby O and I went to a playdate with our PEPS group.

Happy New Year!
I miss these smiley faces!
Baby O and his PEPS friends had a one year birthday party in January. It was so much fun! We played, ate, took a lot of photos and the babies did a cake smash. Some of babies LOVED the cake, some were just ok with it and some cried.
At the birthday party.

And there you have it, our trip to the US in thirty photos.

Baby O

Just a quick update on Baby O.
- He is walking (started at about 9.5 months)
- He has two bottom teeth, that both came in just before Christmas
- One of his top teeth is just poking though, I'm not sure when he cut it, I just noticed it when we were playing a couple days ago.
- Some might argue that he needs a haircut, but I'm not ready yet.
- He is still as happy and smiley as ever!
