We had out professional family pictures scheduled for this weekend so it was definitely down to the wire. Keep your fingers crossed that we get a decent holiday card photo!
My in-laws gave Chris and me a night away from the kids. It was heavenly. Chris planned our weekend, starting with reservations at a hotel downtown, a fancy dinner, and a long walk this morning with stops for pastries, coffee, and a visit to the Chihuly Glass Museum at Seattle Center.
But we spent most of our time tucked into bed, with a glass of wine in had, reading our books in peace and quiet. :)
Child rearing is exhausting and a break from the bambinos was so gratefully appreciated.
Funny story: As we were waiting in line at the Chihuly museum, who should walk out but Chihuly! That black eye-patch is hard to miss. We were surrounded by tourists who had no idea that the master himself was casually strolling through his own museum.
Here are a few interesting links from around the web.
My tootsies are always cold: I clearly need to start wearing uggs everywhere. In cold offices, It's all about your feet.

Have you ever got to a hotel and the pool is about half the size pictures on their website? This is for you: Hotel fakeouts.
As a parent that shares pictures of their kid (see above!), this was especially relevant: The perils of 'sharenting'.
