Last family dinner of 2010...

We have a close group of friends (many of which work with Adam) that we bounce from eachother's homes each week. We call it family dinner. The last family dinner of 2010 was our responsibility and we hosted an ugly sweater party to celebrate the season. We feasted on tapenade (chopped up olive spread), caesar salad, flank steak, loaded mashed potatoes and the crowd favorite: caramel apple strussel cheesecake bars.

Santa Came!

Santa Came! Santa Came! Look what pretty new skis Santa brought Jenny!

Adam's advent calendar

This year Adam got an advent calendar! Aren't they cute. Jenny made one for every day of the month. Sometimes he got candy, sometimes he got fishing gear, but my favorite item has to be the awesome Rhodesian Ridgeback socks I found at a craft fair! Don't they look just like Bubba?!

Jen's in the local paper too!

Adam's not the only famous one in the family. Jennifer was hired as the marketing director for Builders of America, a local private builder. Check out her smiling face in the Tacoma News Tribune AND the Business Examiner! haha. Beat that Adam!

Adam's in the local paper.

It was a normal day of climbing school until the local Tacoma News Tribune writer drove by. He had seen the men climbing and stoped to investigate. I guess he thought it was intriguing enough to put them on the FRONT PAGE! Click here to see the photo. Adam is the one throwing the football.

The most common question answered: If the person throwing the ball makes a bad throw, then the person throwing has to go down and fetch it.

Hurray! Adam graduates climbing school!

Even after his five day hospital stint with Rhabdomyolysis (click here for a definition) Adam graduated from climbing school. Glad he's not afraid of heights!

Our condo on wheels!

Welcome to our new camper, or the rolling condo as we call it. It's pure luxury in our world (more storage than my whole house!). We love it and can't wait to take it up skiing. It's perfect for camping, or just relaxing after a long day, having a beer in the driveway, pretending to be somewhere else.

It looks a little tight by the photos, but it's amazingly spacious. The bed is a true queen and is the perfect size for us. Now if only Kona would stay in his OWN bed.

The kitchen has plenty of storage and counterspace. The dinette seats four adults comfortably. Can't really say the same for sleeping. It sleeps one adult easily.

It's a shower and bathroom in one!

Since the last time we spoke!

Hello family and friends! A lot has happened since the last time we blogged. I'm really sorry it's been so long! To keep you a little more in the loop Adam is now an offical lineman apprentice, which he beat out 542 people for the position! Otherwise here are a few of the fun things we've been up to:

Big Wal and Gina bought a fabulous new Motorhome!
Adam ran a marathon and I ran/walked a 1/2. Can you believe it? How crazy are we?

Amy graduated from Gonzaga Law! Hurray, she's finally done. Just has to pass a little thing called the bar...

Adam caught some Lingcods
