Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone! We hope that your Christmas was as joyous and blessed and fun as ours! The girls had a great time. You can't see India's face but her eyes were wide and her mouth was wide open when she saw the presents under the tree. They got more toys than they (or we) know what to do with. Thinking of you all on this holiday.

Christmas Eve

It's a snowy Christmas in Denver! Jordyn had her first experience in the snow this week. She looked like a little pink marshmallow in her snowsuit. Everytime she would fall down, she would roll inevitably on her stomach and couldn't get back up again. She lasted for a while, that is until she did a few face plants in the snow. She was frozen when we went back inside but she'll be ready to go again. India had a great time!!!
India helped Mommy bake some pies and cookies. Unfortunately neither turned out very good this time :-(
See what our house looked like before Christmas morning!
We love you and miss you all!
Linwood, Sara, India, and Jordyn

Twas the week before Christmas..

Uncle Moe got India and Jordyn "Baby Alives." Would you believe that these babies talk, eat, and go to the bathroom?! The girls LOVE them. They are both dragging them around and pushing them in their stroller. Since both babies look alike, you can hear India asking, "Is that my baby?" Many times throughout the day. Of course the answer is always "Yes."

This past week has been in the 50s and we took advantage of the weather by going for a hike. We saw a lot of deer and India announced to everyone that they were reindeer. Everyday we are cracking up or melting over the cute things she says. Be warned though, now that she knows her manners she expects everyone in the world to follow them. She will say "Thank you" until she is answered with a "You're Welcome" and "I'm sorry" until she is answered with "That's okay."

We have also spent a few evenings driving around looking at Christmas lights and this has become one of India's favorite pasttimes. Note the picture of the keys in her little car at home.

Merry Christmas!
We Love You!

Daddy had a birthday

This has been another eventful week in the Washington household. Uncle Moe came to visit and brought gifts for everybody. We had a birthday party at The Olive Garden with family. There was a slideshow for Daddy that we tried to post, but it wouldn't work. We sang "Happy Birthday" a lot and had balloons to play with. Remember when 40 sounded really old....

Breakfast with Santa

The school that I work at hosted a breakfast with Santa last week and the girls' daycare came. Santa had a real beard and even played the saxophone. Mrs. Claus read story books to the kids. There were no tears this year!

We got a few inches of snow yesterday and couldn't wait to get out and go sledding. India LOVES sledding!!! She is so excited and so brave. Just wait until we take her to the big hills! Jordyn was taking a nap during our adventures. We are frantically searching for warm, waterproof boots that are small enough for her. Who would have thought that would be a problem in Colorado!

Love you and stay warm!

God is soooo good!

We just wanted to take a moment and tell you all how good God is and how he is blessing our lives.
First, India has not had a single seizure since November 29...that is one whole week when she has not gone a day in over a year. We are so thankful and grateful that God has healed her!
Second, we have won a Teacher Next Door house and are awaiting the closing date and details :) For those of you who do not know this program, it is a deal that cannot be passed up!
Aside from these big, miraculous things... we are just so thankful to have jobs and a warm place to live. The temperature here has been close to 0 at night and in the teens during the day for a week now. Yikes!!!

Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break was soooo much fun this year. We had an entire week off of school and enjoyed every minute of it. See the photos of us playing at home and going to the zoo to see "Zoo Lights." We didn't know what the girls would think, but they loved it. Especially India who went running from one set of lights to the next squealing and yelling at us to run with her.
