We were in Oregon over Christmas visiting my family.  We had such a good time.  Zamara had a chance to meet my family for the first time.  She loved meeting her family!!!!  

The trip to Portland was a bit of mess.  Because of weather, our flight was cancelled and then rerouted to Seattle.  We were suppose to arrive in Portland at 1pm, but did not arrive there until 4:30am the next morning.  My step-dad and nephew Travis picked us up at the airport in Seattle.  The airline also lost our we didn't have any luggage or car seat for the week.  We had to go out last minute in Seattle and buy a car seat for Zamara.  The trip there was very stressful, but Zamara was a trooper.  She did great!  

We spent Christmas at a beach house.  It was very fun to have everyone together.  We didn't do much since the weather was rainy.  We did get to walk on the beach and go to the Aquarium.  Zamara loved the beach and the aquarium!!!  We played games and sat by the fire and listened to Christmas music...oh yah, and we ate a lot of food.  

Over the weekend the rest of family joined us back at my parents house.  It was so fun to get to see everyone.  

Here are a bunch of pictures.  We took so many great pictures it may take a while to get them all on the blog.  

blessings,  Laura
