The Rest of Our Holiday

The rest of our weekend we did some really fun things. We set up Christmas decorations on Friday and had a lot of fun. Friday night we went to see the Nutcracker here in Seattle. Soren surprised me with tickets a few weeks ago. It was so sweet of him. I think he even enjoyed his first ballet. :) The designer of this years set and scenery was Maurice Sandek, the illustrator for 'Where the Wild Things Are'. That was really neat to see because he has a distinct style. We had a great time getting dressed up and seeing the ballet.

On Saturday we went on a bike ride out on one of the many trails around here. It drizzeled the whole time which really wasn't bad. We were so amazed at the end of the trip at how soaking wet a constant drizzle get get.
Apparently along this trail there are occational sightings of bears and bobcats and when there are they post up warning signs. These signs explained in great detail that bears had been seen recently and what to do if you come in contact with one. Needless to say I was looking over my shoulder for the rest of the trip.

Hey Kilee!! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond! I wish Dallas and I were moving there but he didn't get the job! He said he should have done what Soren did and do an internship first. Oh well he got a pretty good offer here in Boise with KPMG so I guess we are staying put for now. I love the new hair by the way! It makes your eyes pop! I hope all is well with you guys, Merry Christmas!
