December in Seattle - Page 2

post #21 of 104
I just was browsing the santa photos site and found a coupon for a free 5x7 photo. It doesn't say any purchase is required to get it. http://www.santaphotos.com/images/Lo..._Redmond08.pdf

So if anyone wants a free santa photo, there you go!

I'm feeling so behind. I took on so much crafting for gifts. I don't know what I was thinking!

My wedding anniversary is coming up and dh and I are trying to find a nice restaurant to go to. Got any suggestions? We so rarely go out that we're clueless. Romantic is definitely the feel we'd like!

What type of food do you guys like?

My favorite "special occasion" restaurant is Eva by Greenlake, near the old Honey Bear Bakery. Make a reservation to sit in the main dining area (otherwise you'll end up in the bar, which is more crowded). I've never had a bad meal there and it's not that expensive, compared to some other places around town. If you've got a wad of cash to burn go to Rover's. I made my dh take me there a couple years ago for our anniversary and it is tasty but a bit over the top price wise. This is making me hungry!:

I would say anything but Italian-not that we don't like it but we've had it a bit lately!

I will check out Eva-thank you. I've heard many people tell me good things about Rover's too!

mostly just bumping us.

i haven't gotten santa done and am begining to suspect we might not manage this year. i fear lines and crowds.

we have a really sweet unsheared grand fir now. it's kinda little and has some um, "character." i love it.

i experimented with making some homemade irish cream and amaretto. the amaretto was particularly easy and DELICIOUS. the irish cream needed a smoother whiskey, in my opinion. still kind of fun!

time to get going on some cookies.

Thanks for bumping Janaya!

We finally got our tree today. We just ran out of time last weekend. Unfortunately it's soaking, so it needs to dry overnight before we decorate. Will is very dissapointed to have to wait!

I am so excited for the snow! We have most of our christmas shopping done so we have no need to drive in it(except dh, but he can use our Subaru).

I went out with the boys and got our tree on Monday. DH has been working long hours and I couldn't wait anymore

Today I went over to my grandma's and made krumkake. I think we've eaten half of them already.

Santa....I really want to take the kids but I really don't want to wait in line. We always go downtown and last year we lucked out and there was only a 30minute wait. I just don't know if I want to brave a long line with an excited 3yo and a babe that wants to crawl crawl crawl!

Anyone been to the one at U-Village? Its closer for us but for some reason I thought they only did digital prints-maybe I'm remembering wrong?

We had a lot of fun getting our tree. We got it from a boy scout troop selling in a parking lot just 4 blocks away. So, we strapped DD into the moby and walked over with our stroller. We put the tree on the stroller and walked back. We git some really odd looks from people, but it was super fun.

Can I take back my wish for snow ::. It's beautiful, I love it but I would like my walkable weather back. Luckily I live really close to the main roads so driving isn't awful, but I miss walking the neighborhood with my kids. I feel that exposing them to these temps, when they are not accostumed, is cruel to their poor little noses. Is everyone else going about the days as normal? I have to say I am having less fun with snow than I thought! But I blame it on the ice. I didn't wish for ice

Is anyone else sick? We got this awful cold, my friend warned me her son was sick. I should have listened cause man it is awful. Sorry to be such a downer, UGH. Hope everyone else is well and being productive.

My oldest has been out playing (he's almost four) and has been fine. Though we go at the peak "heat" of the day. I keep my 17 month old inside. Today I took him to bel-square so he could run and play and the play area was a ZOO! He had more fun just running around the mall anyways!

We had a nasty cold a couple of weeks ago and it lasted nearly 2 weeks. Ended up in a nasty bacterial ear infection that would not go away for my 17 month old. First time either of my kiddos has been on antibiotics and did not make me happy. Big brother had a much more mild cold, I think because his nasal cavities are bigger so drainage happened faster.

Yeah, the ice isn't any fun, although it was definitely better today/tonight than it was last night and this morning. It may be below freezing, but the sun being out definitely helps.
I wish I didn't have to drive in it, but I worked yesterday, had school & an appt today. Freeway's are all fine, so I just go that way whenever possible.

Apparently it's going to happen again on Wednesday, and of course I have my much-needed and horribly-overdue eye appointment on that day.
Really, the snow wouldn't be that bad if it would warm up afterwards like it normally does, but this freezing stuff is just no fun.

We get well water and are just about out, so I'm trying to decide if it's worth it to go fill up my jugs in below freezing weather, or just drink the darned tap water. Uh, assuming that the well didn't freeze up too.

We've been ok, the roads around here are pretty dry. But I'm sure I'll be stuck at home when it snows tonight/tomorrow until it melts. We live in the top of a big hill in a very rural area. When it snows there are usually people's cars parked all over the side of the road and footprints from everyone walking, possibly miles, home.

I'm taking my youngest to kidsquest today while ds1 is in school to give him a chance to run around before he gets stuck in the house. And then to Fred Meyer to pick up some food and stuff in case we can't get out for a few days. I like the snow, but I like when it melts withni 24 hours, or at least enough that I can get out!

I am so not accostumed to this weather. Well at least not for this duration. I tried to take the kids to play outside in the snow. It took longer to dress them than anything else. It was cute though. I hope the pics turn out. I never seem to have the right camera when I need it.

Is everyone through with their gifts? We don't celebrate but I do still have to buy for my mother, and I can say that I have not purchased one thing for her yet! Cross your fingers for me that I find something perfect.

I'm almost done with gifts. A couple of gift baskets with homemade mixes and jams that I still need to do.

I'm worried about the wind they are predicting for Saturday. I'm going to be a very grumpy person if we lose power and it stays out through Christmas.

We just got back from an early X-mas gathering in L.A., boy do I ever miss the warmer weather! We survived a 2 hour plane ride each way with 2 kids only to come home to this. : I'm glad we went b4 x-mas, crowds were probably less and the cost was way cheaper!

I've never seen snow like this in Seattle. We all got bundled up today and Lily sledded down the little hill at the end of the street. The baby was out for about 5 minutes and had enough of it! Luckily I went to the grocery store yesterday.

I'm thinking my lettuce, kale, chard, mustard greens and arugula are all toast out in the garden. I gotta pull the beets, they should still be okay, I hope...

I've got the gifts all bought, but only 2 wrapped. It's hard to find time to wrap them with little kids. I bought the last few yesterday with the baby, hopefully he won't say anything about them to his big sister. I have a few Christmas cards ready for the mailman to take, but no mail service today.

I'm feeling just a TEENSY bit freaked out by the weather now. The snow was one thing, but they just did the weather forecast and they're talking about possible heavy winds on Monday and Tuesday, and because of the icy conditions we might end up losing power. (During the '06 windstorm, this house lost power for a WEEK!) My due date is Tuesday; what happens to my HBAC if the power goes out and I go into labor?

I've been feeling really calm/secure/confident about the upcoming birth . . . I guess NOW I have something to worry about!

Birth Junkie!

Best wishes to you.

Darcydoodle - Kale is fine in the snow. It'll survive perfectly fine and be super sweet from freezing. It's one of the rare things that does well in super cold!

BirthJunkie - Well, women used to give birth without electricity all the time...but maybe your mw has a suggestion? I hope it all goes well!
