Fall Photos

We had a beautiful fall in Portland, following a pretty chilly and wet summer. I'm posting this the day after Christmas, and the winter has continued to be fairly mild. It's either been rainy or cold, but not both. I consider this to be good weather!

Henry is so into helping and doing things himself. It's so incredible to see him learning something new each day.

Elliot was napping while Henry raked the leaves for me. He came out and took right to tossing them into the air and jumping into the pile. It was great fun, and a new experience due to leaves usually being soggy in Portland.

Waiting to See Santa

Santa event number one for the year was seeing him arrive to Fremont Street via fire engine! I thought it was going to blow their minds, but both Henry and Elliot were pretty mellow about the whole thing. They like the idea of Santa, as in a guy who gives them presents, but haven't been enveloped in the whole Christmas thing.

Just Like Papa!

When I was doing laundry, Elliot found a shirt of Mike's and decided to be like papa. Henry followed suit, and by the time I got out the camera, Elliot was over it. I have to most unwilling photo subjects ever! But they're pretty cute in real life!
