Happy 2014!

We had a wonderful holiday season this year and enjoyed so many fun activities with our family, I'm still working on scrapping the photos. Here are just a few happy, happy memories from the last 2 months.

It started with a great Thanksgiving gathering at my mom's house with cousin Ronda's family and sister-in-law Brenda's family. And the first ever Turduchen. It was delicious!

Then, we got to tag along with Brenda's family on their annual tree cutting outing to Candy Cane Lane. Cider, giant cookies and the perfect tree were all part of the festivities.

We made a quick stop at Snoqualmie Falls on the way to the tree farm. It was well worth the stop.

Some really tasty white chocolate dipped shortbread kicked off the cookie baking extravaganza this year, which included, buried cherries, maple yule logs, sugar cut outs, chocolate chip peanut butter carmel bars, grasshopper bars, scandinavian almond bars and german chocolate thumbprints.

We came back to the beach for a week in between the holidays. Paul and Heather joined us for a trip to Shore Acres Christmas lights show, The Hobbit, Shrek the Musical and this lovely morning walk on the beach.  And as you can see, Pepper had a blast!!!

And we finished up with a Christmas celebration with everyone at Brenda and Doug's, including Will, who flew up from Arizona for the week. Still have loads of pics to go through and scrap, but wanted to share a few of the memories from this special holiday season. Happy New Year everyone! Hope 2014 is just as good as 2013 was.

  1. Rachelle, I am loving every one of your digital layouts. I think my favorite one is the dog running on the beach. Everything works so perfectly together and love how you used the frame over the biggest photo.
