Watch What I'm Wearing

This is my 25 week baby bump.  I can definitly tell in pictures that my face is starting to round out :( There's not much I can do about that at this point though.

Jungle Jims

Today's post is all about the Cincinnati food!  First off they have skyline.  If you've never heard of it, I'd say it is definitly worth a try.  We don't have it on the West coast and I actually didn't know this sort of thing existed until I met Bob.  It is basically a type of chili that you put over noodles and smother in cheese.  The chili is almost the same consistency as spaghetti sauce.  They also put it over fries and hot dogs.  I like it, but I'm not the biggest fan.  We usually go once per visit and that is just perfect for me.  Some people really really love it.
My favorite is Graters ice cream.  We really need to get one of these on the west coast.  They sell a chocolate chunk raspberry ice cream that is delicious.  We went there a couple times over our visit.
We also made a trip out to Jungle Jims.  This was my first time there and it was pretty interesting.  It is basically a huge grocery store with lots of different cultural foods in it as well as fun animal (fake) and other displays everywhere in the store.  It was really fun to explore and the kids especially liked it.

Scarlett was not a fan of the fish section.



I thought these little pineapples were cute.
They even had a little movie theatre showing a film of how the store got started.  It all began with a little bit weird guy named Jim.


And that was our trip to the grocery store.

Gingerbread Houses

One day during the reunion we met with some family friends at church to play and build ginger bread houses.  Penelope and Bob worked on a Repunzel's tower.
Tucker built his all by himself.
Scarlett, Leon, and I all worked on this one together.  Although there were times when they lost interest and it was just me.
We chose to wear our reunion shirts that day.  I like how they turned out.
All the grandkids together.
Being silly.
All the Woestmans together wearing our shirts.
Being silly.
It seemed like most of the time everyone was playing basketball or eating lunch or running around the gym but I somehow only got one picture of Bob and Leon in the gym.

Woestman Christmas Reunion

About every two years the whole Woestman side of the family gets together for a family reunion.  This year it we did it over Christmas at Bob's parents house in Cincinnati, Ohio.  Bob's parents put a ton of work into it and it was amazing!  It was so nice to get to see everyone and we had a great time.
Some of these pictures I took from Maria she was really on top of the pictures this year. Both Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas dinner were scrumptious. 

The kids put on an adorable nativity play.
All the kids received at least one set of legos for gifts and they were dying to put them together.

The family also spent a lot of time playing games.  I was tired a lot, partly because of the pregnancy, partly because we stayed up late every night, and partly because I was on cold medicine part of the time so I took a nap almost every day.  I missed out on the life games because of napping and that was ok with me :)
More to come...

Christmas Trip

The kids were so excited to go to Grandmas house in Ohio this year for Christmas.  They were telling everyone how they were going to go on a plane and see their cousins.
They were even loving the bus that took us from the airport parking lot to the air port.
Everyone did really well in the airport and even carried their luggage most of the time.  We only used carry ons so everyone had things to carry.

Good by rainy Seattle.
At one point Bob and I got to sit in a row without the kids.  It was really nice!  I'm so used to having a lap child on airplanes that this was a treat.
Both flights were delayed and we did sit on one plane for about an hour before taking off but we made all our flights and over all it went pretty well.

2016 Second a Day Video

Have you seen the one second a day videos?  Once I heard about them I tried hard to take a short video every day last year.  Last night we watched the video with the kids.  They loved it.  It was fun to look back at all the things we did, even it if only was one second a day.
