Last night we went to a place called Peacock Street that is a bit famous here in Portland for its Christmas light display. It was a clear cold night so it was perfect for taking in the sights. We went with our friends the Newby family. They have two daughters who are the same age as Katie and Livy and they just added a son. (Lucky)
The street was absolutely packed.....full of families, teenagers and drunk groups of hooligans dressed up like Santa and singing slurred Christmas songs. One of the Santa's even had a Freddy Krueger mask on which went over well with the girls.
We did run in to the real Santa Claus while walking past one house. The streets were packed, so we quickly gathered the girls together to get a picture with him. As I aimed for the perfect shot I noticed that we had made a new friend. We have no idea who he is, but he seemed like a nice kid so we kept him in the picture. We are just going to tell everyone that he was our Wednesday's child and we were taking him out for some Christmas cheer.

We were very lucky this year to be invited back to Medford to spend Thanksgiving with our good friends Kelley, September, Hannah and Miles Karrigan. It was one of our all time best Thanksgivings. On Thursday morning Kelley and I golfed 9 holes on a cold, but beautiful morning. Britt, September and the kids spent the morning at the park. We took it easy most of the day and ate Thanksgiving dinner at 6:30 pm. It was so cool.
The next morning Britt and September were up early to hit the sales. It was such a great time and we just feel so lucky to be surrounded by friends in Medford, and here in Portland who take such good care of us. We certainly missed the families, but the Karrigan's made our Thanksgiving truly great.

With Preschool in session for Katie, it was time for our first year of "school clothes." We couldn't leave Livy out, she was just as excited as Katie to do some shopping. The girls, especially Katie, are very particular about what they like to wear.
The fashion show was great. Katie loves to strike a pose, while Olivia is just happy to be along for the ride. The shopping is freaking Dad out, it makes our financial future look grim.

The Agony of Defeat.......
Katie was not as excited at the progress of the pumpkins. A little over two weeks and not even a little sprout. We are very new at this and I'm not sure that the pumpkins will take. My Dad told me that pumpkins are the easiest thing to grow in a garden. We find that hard to believe.
