Well, it's been a while but I'll be writing some posts to update!  We spent Christmas in Virginia with Brady's parents.  It was a fun trip!  We spent the first week helping his parents do some things in their kitchen.  They are remodeling it and needed Brady's strapping muscles for some projects.  We went to an art gallery that first week too.  Christmas was really fun.  We went to Church for an hour and then came home and opened the presents.  Lily kind of got into opening them, but she still didn't really know what she was doing.  I got Brady a really cool techie jacket and the big present I got is a food processor!  I LOVE it.  I also borrowed a book from my mother-in-law called the Sneaky Chef.  It just gives you ways to incorporate veggies and healthy stuff into everyday recipes.  The food processor has helped a ton with making the things for that!

Lily's first plane ride!

There were these cute little carts at one of the grocery stores.

 Nap time!

 We went to the National Zoo the day after Christmas

Lily really liked the small mammal house because their cages were lower so she could see them really well.  

Brady and I were able to go on a date while we were there.  We saw the new Sherlock Holmes (awesome!) and went to this cool restaurant that had great chicken sandwiches. We also got a present from his parents for Christmas to go to Much Ado About Nothing - a play that was going on in DC and set in Cuba.  It was actually really awesome!

 It was a great vacation!  We spent a lot of nights watching recorded Christmas movies (which I love) and just hanging out.
