Back to the Grind

We finally got back from Seattle on Friday. We had so much fun!!! Honestly we really didn't do much but relax around my parents house but it was great. Unfortunately we couldn't get to the city because my parents do not have a car seat friendly car so when we would leave to run errands or go shopping, Mike, Isabel and I with my mom we in her 98 TransAm. For those that don't appreciate it, it's two doors with bucket seats. The back seats are a bit less then roomy and the car seat sat at a slight angle but we had fun nonetheless. My sister and her boyfriend came up for Thanksgiving and stayed thru the weekend. We played Apples to Apples a few times...I highly recommend the game. It's a ton of fun. My grandpa, when he came for Thanksgiving brought Izzy a blow up plastic chair that she carried everywhere around the house and sat down for a few minutes, then picked and walked to a new location. She provided a new meaning to the phrase "hours of entertainment". All day she just puddered around the house playing with stuff. My mom bought her a little musical penguine that flaps it's wings while moving up and down singing jinglebells. Isabel would join him in dancing. It took her a couple of days to settle in to a routine but after a while she finally would go to my mom.
Her favorite place to play was in the kitchen in the measuring cup drawer, which is in the middle of the kitchen. OH! The first day we were there Mike and I ran to IKEA for a couple of hrs and Izzy was so worn out by 8:30 from playing with Grandpa that she was standing in front of the oven and slide down and fell asleep leaning against it! I wish we could have seen it but Dad put her to bed before we got back.
She got her first kiss while we were there. One of my best friends came over with her husband and CUTE 2yr old. He kissed Izzy and then Izzy said "I gotcha!". Keegan kissed her on the cheek multiple times again that night...
I know I need to post pictures soon, Leslie will yell if I don't so I'll figure out how to put some in a collage so I can post more. As soon as Mike can get his computer to work...hopefully tonight...even the mighty Mac is falling.
It was a WONDERFUL vacation but its good to be home and decorating my new house for Christmas!

Yay! What a great trip! And jut think, I'll be visiting you in a week! That chair was the best. I hope she still loves it even when she's too big!

Maybe you didn't expect me to check so soon, but since you brought it up, where's the pics! There I did it. Yelled for the pictures. Oh, and put up the ones where we caught mom sleeping in the kitchen. Those were great!
