For (Great) Grandpa

Jeramy's Grandpa, who had been an Olympia Fireman for 30 years, passed away surrounded by family. The night before he died the Christmas Santa Firetruck passed our house and we were able to show Grandpa the video which he loved. This is also a video of them at the zoo a few years ago, and of Jeramy, Sage, and his Mom and Dad putting up ornaments. When I walked out of the room at the hospital I saw a stocking that said Pat H (my Grandma). It is the signs, the firetruck, the stocking, that lets us know they are always with us. We love you!!

Potty Time!





This is what I found while stumbling into the kitchen. While we have not officially started potty training yet as we are still tring to win the crib wars, we moved her potty seat into the livingroom or kitchen so she can sit on it and get use to it with no pressure. Guess this is her idea of using the potty!

Santa from Cabelas and THE FACE








So of course we did our Santa pictures at Cabelas again this year. I was a little fearful going in that Sage would freak out, but her and Santa bonded over their matching outfits and she did great, no tears or anything. In fact she kept going back to talk to him while we were waiting for our picture. Here is a picture of her dress and hat that my mom got her, as well as her Seahawks cheerleading outfit that she wears on Sundays, because we all know they could use the help. She wore her Husky's cheerleading outfit (because you know she is a born Husky) during Apple Cup and to all of my Cougar friends and family, we all know that that did the trick...lol
Also, lately she has been doing this thing we call "the face" it is SO funny and if you ask her to do the face she will do it to anyone. Last night she had the nurses laughing. It really is super funny, I think we are in trouble. lol
Thanks to everyone for their prayers for Gpa Cal..he is out of ICU and on a hospital floor now. He is a stubborn old man and I think that is what keeps getting him through...now we just have to work on shutting him up so he keeps his oxygen levels down. He is such a proud grandpa, great grandpa and dad that he wants to tell anyone who will listen how great his family is. I am just glad he is out of the ICU and Sage finally got to see him, she was in her santa suit so I think it made him happy!

Future CEO




"What do you need now? Can't you see I am busy"

"No No No, that isn't how you do it"

"UGG I will just do it myself!"

These pictures crack me up...she brought her little laptop and play phone to her table and was talking on the phone while playing with the mouse and computer like she was working. She was very animated at whom ever she was talking to, and aparantly was late for a meeting since the last picture she looks pretty aggitated, or the phone call didn't go the way she wanted it to. Look out for Sage Super CEO someday! She means business!

Oh Christmas Tree






So instead of a real tree we have 2 fake ones. The one I had in the hospital when I had her and another one. On this tree we only have meaningful ornaments that we have made a tradition to buy each year, such as, happy engagement, wedding, bought our first house, expectant parent, baby's first Christmas etc. MOST IMPORTANT ORNAMENT IS THE HUSKY FOOTBALL!!Plus the angel from Grandma's tree. We also have 2 hunting shacks that light up to go with some of our hunting and fishing ornaments. The black blanket is the blanket Grandma knitted me right before she died. We also have our stockings hung on an Elk Rack lol...
We installed a security camera in this room so when we are in the other room we can see her, and put the other wireless camera in her room since we are making her sleep in her own room. Today was hard, she cried for 2 straight hours. Also, at the gym I only got a 30 minute workout (which is the most I have gotten) because Lil Miss Sage was crying and didn't want to play with the 12 other kids exactly her age....so I sat in there for 30 minutes to make her comfortable and I noticed she played all by herself. I don't want her to get the only child syndrome and cry when I take her to preschool and kindergarden, so we are going to go to the gym everyday even if I have to hide in the room and not work out. Wish us luck

Bah Hum Bug









So anyone that has been to our house knows that there are about 30 dead antlers and mounts from deer and moose in our garage. Once you step inside there are 3 European mount Elk and a TON of elk an deer sheds...then when you step out our back porch there are about 10 European buck mounts. Aside from our 2 boats on the side of the house, it looks like a bunch of savages live here.
So naturally our outside Christmas lights had to reflect our inside decor. So we have this Gigantic blow up hunter holding a rifle and 3 deer. Jeramy wanted to put a pool of blood down, but I put a river and water down. It actuallity it looks pretty cool. So as long as we don't have PETA breathing down our neck, we should be fine...lol..except when we have to put it all away, which is one of the reasons I didn't want to do it.

As for inside...I would rather get a fake tree that you just pull out of the box...so this is our tree...this is the one Andrea got me when we were in the hospital waiting for Sage. I suppose when she is a little bigger and won't bother the tree we will get a real one like Jeramy wants. As for me, I am happy to pull one out of the box. As for now, this is the only decoration inside.
I got my Christmas cards in the mail and aside from hanging stockings and doing minimul shopping I am DONE!!
