For the week of Thanksgiving we went to Washington. Our first stop was Kennewick to meet our new niece Emma and go to her blessing. She is the most darling little thing! It was so great to finally meet her since we have been hearing about how great she is for a while.
Here is Bry with our kids and Emma.

Cute Emma.

Bryan with his sister Brittany and Emma.

From Kennewick we headed to Yakima just in time for the snow. Here is Ian wishing he could go out in the snow.

Kate went out to watch/help Grandpa Dan shovel some snow.

Jake and Kate both spent a lot of time building with Legos making things like this:

This is where they spent a ton of time.

We also had a little birthday party for Ian and Kate while we were there. There were a lot of people around so I think Ian was a little overwhelmed. He did not really get into the cake eating like we thought he might. The rest of us did enjoy Aunt Shae's cupcakes though.

Kate and Ian climbing all over their cousin Wes.

The last morning we were there the kids got a bit of an early Christmas. We did not really have room to take wrapped gifts in the van, and we wanted everyone to get a chance to watch the kids open their gifts. Jake and Kate could not have been more excited! Here they are starting the opening.

This is were Ian spent the morning.

When it was time to leave, it took some work, but Bry was able to get all our stuff in the van. It was a tight fit.
It was great to have a chance to see family. Until next time...

That is an extremely tight fit in your van. Was anyone able to move?
