Okay, so I got lazy and didn't actually make the gingerbread. It's a graham cracker house. I was going to make the gingerbread, but Liam was being too fussy, so I went with plan B. Next year, we'll attempt to make it out of real gingerbread.
My favorite part is the bear and the little chocolate poop.

Today is my birthday, so I copied Halen's 3 picture, only with an added number. It's still snowing like crazy here. It's very pretty out. We went sledding in Laurelhurst park yesterday, then headed to Sweetpea to warm up with vegan cheezy tater soup, an almond milk mocha, pizza rolls, and of course Saturday doughnuts!!! Liam is totally fearless, and was constantly trying to dive down the snow covered hill. We finally let him and Halen sled together, with one parent at the top of the hill and the other at the bottom. Good times.

Halen, Liam, and myself all get older this month. We had a super joint birthday bash. We were supposed to do it on Mt. Hood, but got blizzarded out and opted for the vegan and kid friendly pizza joint, It's A Beautiful Pizza. It was a good time. I got the pesto sauce on my pizza this time, and it was amazing. I'm a serious pesto fan. If somebody makes it vegan, then I am all over it. It was deeeeeelicious and I want more.
Our friend Carrie, baker extrordinaire, made Halen an awesome Superman Cake. It even had muscle definition! So cool.
It was real fun and cute to see Halen eating up the birthday attention. Liam didn't know what was going on, so the party really was all for Halen. He loved it. The birthday mania begins with 3.
When John and Cassie were here, we took a day trip to the beach. John and Cassie got some good pics, with John's super nice camera. Here are just a few of my favorites. The black sand beaches make such a nice high contrast picture. Liam flies, Halen gets hit with a sneaker wave, and Liam makes a mess of himself while eating sand.
