LIFE LATELY DECEMBER

wow this year flew by! i can’t believe how much catching up i’ve done on the blog over the last two days. feels like a weight lifted! seattle is treating us so good. the summer was amazing, the fall was beautiful and its been a treat to have an actual winter. i am cold a lot. i’m not used to that. in my mind december should be a nice 70 degrees. i’m really craving a warm day. for christmas we decided on a family trip to hawaii. we surprised the kids with a swimsuit and few hawaiian trinkets. they guessed it right away. we leave in 2 1/2 weeks. i’m so glad its not a secret anymore. i almost slipped up so many times! henri is doing so well. ivan on the other hand has terrible allergies. i’m not even sure how since nothing is blooming. i told him he needs to get allergy tested maybe his constant congestion is a food allergy??

henri got his tonsils out. we talked to his doctors back in arizona and they said he needed them out. they are constantly infected and he gets strep far too often. they said it would help with post nasal drip irritation and snoring. his doctor here agreed. he recovered like a champ and is doing great.

meat and bread is in seattle! we’ve only been to the vancouver location. so nice having one down the street. i got the meatball and loved it. ivan got the traditional porchetta.

i’ve had trouble finding great donuts in seattle. i like the traditional pink box donut shops from back home or a gourmet donut. seattle can’t seem to get it right. mighty-o are good cake donuts but they don’t have those light fluffy fresh donuts like other places. another big chain up here makes the donuts at a separate location and ships them up, thats not fresh! general porpoise was pretty darn good. the vanilla is my favorite. its not the kind of donut shop that you order a dozen. i want to say they’re almost $4 a donut but for a sweet treat they hit the spot.
