ONE OF OUR WEEKEND EXCURSIONS WAS

getting to explore Battery Russell at Fort Stevens.  It was definitely a highlight for my man clan!
We cannot wait to go back on a camping trip.  It's moved to the top of the list!

WHILE WE WERE IN ASTORIA, WE WENT

to Fort Stevens to see The Peter Iredale, which has been in this spot since 1906.  It was fun to show the boys this history in the sand and ocean - it is amazing!  This wreckage is 108 years old!

THE BEST OF ALL GIFTS AROUND ANY CHRISTMAS TREE: THE PRESENCE

of a happy family all wrapped up in each other - Burton Hillis
Laughter, gluttony, family, spirit and cheer.
We spent last night celebrating with the Youngs and this morning with the Petersons.  Now we're ready for nap!  It's been a wonderful celebration.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

HIS THEME WAS "LAIRD IS THE FAVORITE"

He picked the birthday theme himself and got a photo on everyone's lap because, you know, he's the favorite.  It was hilarious.
This is one of my favorite pictures - Landon's face is, 'you've got to be kidding me'.  Cracks me up!
We had mac and cheese potluck - everyone brought their favorite mac and cheese creation.  It was delicious and super cheesy
The birthday cake was a pole vaulting cake - with our favorite 17 year old clearing the crossbar.

It was a fun celebration - lots of food, laughs, presents and our infamous birthday singing.
Happy, happy birthday Laird!!
