Christmas Lights

The other night, we headed to Garden D' Lights in Bellevue and had a fun time walking around while drinking hot chocolate and apple cider (we are such warm WINTER-ITE drinkers now!). Of course Micah enjoyed it all too...sleeping. We've been trying to view as much Christmas lights as we can around here. Love love Christmas!

Snow in Seattle!

It's been snowing here the last week and as I write, it is actually snowing really hard right now outside our front window. Looks SOOO beautimous and yet I know when we go out to drive in it soon we may not be saying that. Oh well, we are enjoying this new part of the Northwest :).

Right before heading into church last Sunday-Micah's 1st snow!

Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree

We got a Christmas tree! I know what your thinkin'...it's just a Christmas tree you guys... HOWEVER this our first official Thompson Christmas Tree. We had a Charlie Brown type of tree one year during seminary, so this tree was pretty exciting for us. We ended up buying it from a church that was raising monies for youth missions so thought that was pretty cool too. Plus it's Micah Man's 1st Christmas!!! Here are the pics from the day:
