This year we stayed in Portland for Thanksgiving. We missed our families a lot, but we had a good time here. Two families in our ward invited us to have Thanksgiving with them, it was delicious and we had a good time. I didn't take any pictures on Thanksgiving. We went to the Macy's holiday parade in downtown Portland the day after Thanksgiving and it was a lot of fun for us.

Hmmm...Century High (Jacob's high school in Pocatello) came all this way to be in the Parade!
Yep we had a prime spot, right next to the trash can.

Halloween 2011

Checking all the candy she got from trick or treating
Charli might look mad here, but she is actually saying cheese.
Jacob was such a good sport and carried Charli for most the time when we took her out to trick or treat.
Our mummy, she would only wear her head band temporarily, so this is the best picture we got.
Jacob went as a referee and I went as a sack of potatoes.

Charli checking her pumpkin to make sure that Jacob did it right
We let her stand on this chair while Jacob carved the pumpkin, she loved it.

Charli loved her pumpkin. She would walk over to it and give it kisses. She is such a cutie.
This is a picture Jacob took of the trees by our house. Autumn is beautiful here in Portland.
Momsie, (Holly's grandma) sent Charli this chair in the mail. Charli would always go and climb into this chair at Momsie's. So one day we got a really big package in the mail with this chair in it, the pumpkin in the picture and those flowers that Charli is holding. She also sent an Elmo movie and book. Thank you so much Momsie! We love you and we miss you. As you can see in the picture, Charli says "cheese" now for our pictures, sometimes.

We made it to Oregon

Above is a picture of us at the Oregon Coast. Below is our family in Virginia Beach. You can see that it is a little cooler here in Oregon, and we got lucky that the sun was shinning.
We finally made it to Oregon! We are almost all unpacked, we just have a few things left that we need to find a place for. We are 10 minutes from Ikea, which I love, unfortunately that is Charli's least favorite store. We are also 10 minutes from a "real" outlet mall. The shopping here is amazing, and the traffic is crazy! It is hard to believe that in the last three months we have lived on opposite sides of the United States. We have been to the Atlantic and the Pacific ocean in those short few months.

Here are some pictures from the time we spent in Virginia Beach. Charli had a great time and was a great traveler for us. Jacob is still in Virginia working but he will be home in 2 more weeks and Charli and I can't wait to see him again.
