Life lately - the staycation

Playing iPhone catch up from the end of last year - our Christmas through New Years staycation...

Christmas Eve - making green grinch cookies with the boys (and of course, watching the movie together)...



Merry Christmas! This was our 4th Christmas we've spent away from family, but only the second where we've actually spent it at home. Ollie was very keen to have Christmas in our own house this year and we happily obliged... Hopefully the next one will be down under though ;-) (and I made my very first terrine!).




The week Mitch had off between Christmas & New Years we just hung out - took the boys to the park...



Visited the Exploratorium in the city (and had a yummy lunch from the Ferry Building)...





Spent the day at the San Francisco Zoo...





Had many coffee dates/bike rides to Philz...


And then we finished off our little mini break by spending a few days shopping around for a new car! Neither of us were too keen to get rid of our VW, but with baby girl on the way a little more space is necessary, so we came home with a nice dark grey Toyota Highlander... I came dangerously close to a minivan (ugh - what was I thinking?!? It seemed like a good idea til the moment I sat in it and then I knew we are a SUV family for life) but the highlander is a good compromise, roomy enough and a 7 seater, hooray!
