Visiting the Weaver's

We went up to Anacortes this weekend (it's North of Seattle, WA) to see our friends the Weaver family :D We had a lot of fun with them. We need to go and see them more often, weekends just seem to fly by and we never can get up there.
Mark has had a goatee (is that how you spell it???) for a few months now, and decided to shave it part way off, I kept staring at him and then laughing. He seriously looks like Wyatt Earp from the movie Tombstone. He just needs a cowboy hat hahaha! :D
We got to see the sights, in between the rain and cold wind...

I saw this bald eagle flying around and then it landed a ways off, so I made Charissa hike over to it with me. We got right under the dead tree he was sitting on, and he was looking down at us like "um... could you buzz off? I am busy hunting fish YO!" Or something like that :) He was pretty though, and big.

Here's Jessie and her pal Gordon.

Matt's dad was kind enough to take us on a boat ride, and we had a great time, thank you again!! :D

We made it back home tonight, and took down our huge-mongous Christmas tree, so our house is slowly getting back to normal. I have to work tomorrow, but Mark and the kids get the day off. Lucky Duckys.

Christmas :D

Christmas came to the Lott house and it was a great day! Santa really thought the kids were good this year :)
I think making all of these cookies for Santa made him pleased :D
Curren got a Nintendo DS, can you tell he's excited??
Jessie got lots of horse toys and baby stuff, she was very happy.

It even snowed! Well, it kinda snowed it melted as soon as it hit the ground, but it was fun for sure!

Oh Christmas Tree...

We got our big huge giant tree this year. Mark says it's 11 feet x 11 feet :) We got it last weekend at a Christmas tree farm by our house.
Mark got the lights out on the house earlier this week. It looks great! We have been trying to get everything together for Christmas now... and we still have a lot to go.

I managed to get some nice pictures of the kids this afternoon. They were not cooperating as much as I'd have liked, but I'll take what I can get :) The best one goes in the Christmas card, so I'm not showing it yet :D

Thanksgiving, a day late and a dollar short.

Thanksgiving week was a lot of fun, we were able to drive out to Utah to see our friends and family. I was so glad we were able to go. We left here on Sunday morning and drove the 12 hours to Orem Utah and stayed with Nate and Julie. We had fun. Mark went shooting with Nate, and we got to go see Park City. There was no snow to be seen when we were there (I see it’s snowed since). Mark and Nate wanted to go snowboarding, but that didn’t happen :)

The kids got to hold Julie's snake
I spent a day with Aunt Phyllis, we had such a fun time! We went out to lunch and met Kenny, Cami and River. We went shopping and got a lot of talking done. It was wonderful. I wish I lived close to her still, she is the best person.
We spent the last few days of the trip with Grandma and Grandpa Painter. We always have a great time with them. Grandma has a basement full of toys that Jessie loved playing with. We had a great dinner at Uncle Dave’s house. And we got to see Uncle Cliff and Aunt Bev. Jessie loved Uncle Cliff :) She still is talking about him.
We drove back home on Saturday morning. Mark had to leave on Tuesday for another business trip. I know this post is rather late, sorry about that. We have all been really sick this past week, and are just feeling normal again. We went to dinner with my coworkers on Sunday night, that was really nice. This Thursday is the church Relief Society Christmas dinner. I am looking forward to that, I am in charge of decorating for it. On Friday night we are going to a concert downtown. Collective Soul is headlining, with 4 other bands! I am pretty excited, and Mark is being forced to go, but he will have fun whether he likes it or not haha! I think he’s getting old *wink wink*

I’ll try to be good and post more :) Thanks for stopping by.
