Matthew and Allyssa have kept up some
activities since Quinn's arrival. Matthew
really loves soccer and practicing Piano
and Allyssa does dance and crafts. But
these activities start to wind down as
winter approaches. This year (as everyone
in the Seattle area knows) we were hit by a
severe snowstorm near Thanksgiving.
Allyssa had her first chance to play in the
snow, and we all had lots of fun.....for
about 30 minutes. Then it was inside for
hot chocolate and movies.
December involved a lot more sticking
around the house and just trying to keep
up with things. It's amazing how much
tougher the "logistics" are when you have
to load three kids in the car....though they
do all seem to calm down after the car is
going. Every day the kids get older (and
errrr Wiser?) life gets better. Allyssa is
talking in longer sentences and starting to
see how she fits in and Quinn is doing the
normal baby things (like sleeping through
the night!!). Allyssa & Matthew's activities
generate community involvement and
keep us busy.
2010 has been a great year and we look
forward to 2011. Click next below if you
