Christmas # 5 and "scoot scoot"

My mom got to ride scoot scoot tonight
and the rest of these pictures have nothing
to do with my scooter:) Just loved the picture

This is from Christmas # 5 at the Converse's in Corvallis

Mags was better at walking in my shoes than I was!

Probably the most normal picture I've ever seen of these 2!!
And he's making a sort of normal face in this one too!

The girlies
The whole gang. Jeff, you look amazing!
The adorable Roe kids

Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!!
Ours isn't quite over....we still have
2 more in the valley but here's an update
on a couple of our Christmases.

Jim bought me a scooter!!!! It's the cutest thing ever.....
But I can't exactly ride it yet:) It's a win win because
I love a white Christmas!

Here are some pictures from my family's Christmas last night

This was the drive over the pass for the Roe family Christmas

Oh yeah, we got our nieces and nephews summer sausage....sure!
They were slightly confused....don't worry, we got them other stuff too!

Merry Christmas to you all!

people came down for this

We even got to hold the big scissors!

You can tell I just got done with a long day's work:)

Starlight gala

Every Christmas, my grandparent's church has a
Starlight Gala, a christmas fundraise if you will. You dress up,
get a gourmet dinner, bid on items in a silent auction
as well as a live auction and then dance to live music
with a bunch of adorable old people!
We decided to go this year and it was a blast!!Here we are all dressed up!
Jim and Branden looking sharp

Here's the gang, Branden, Hailey, Colleen, Brise and us
Wish I had documented the "older table" with parents,
aunts and uncles, grandparents because they all
looked amazing!!
Branden and Hailey were the auction "runners."
They made sure people actually paid for their items.

Jim was sad that he only bought 1 thing at the auction.
He loves the thrill of auctioning!!
We got a night at Eagle Crest with dinner and golf!
Here we are cutting a rug....notice the classic Jim move

And the best picture of the night.....Jim dancing
with an amazing old lady! Look at both of their

Holiday Job

Jim and his many jobs:)
My dad and Jim bid a job for the city of Redmond
to permanently set up all of the downtown buildings
with Christmas lights.
So, all last week, they got to be Santa's little helpers.
The city provided the lifts and they had traffic blocked
off and everything!
Vests and hard hats are all part of the job
Here's Jim in the lift.....note the one side
of traffic blocked off just for our guys

Oh hey Jim!
Really hard to capture the end result at night

but it looks amazing!

You guys will just have to drive downtown Redmond
because this clearly doesn't do it!
