Christmas in The Dalles!

I enjoyed Christmas this year with my parents. We had some alone time and it was nice to relax and not be in a hurry to do anything. We ate at Olive Garden (one of my favorite restaurants) which we don't have in Roseburg. We desperatly need some new restaurants here. A Red Robin & Olive Garden woud be nice!

We did some shopping, shopping, and more shopping. We stayed in Portland and hit the malls for a couple of days and then headed to The Dalles to see my Grandparents and Aunt Colleen (mom's sister). We enjoyed playing Scrabble with Tim; who is a nice gentleman (Colleen's S/0). We had some good laughs and it was nice to be with family. I was disappointed that I didn't get to see my cousin Carmen this year but maybe next year.

I made contact with Nikki Weeks (Lepin) a few months ago and made plans to visit her while I was in The Dalles. It had been over year that I last saw Nikki. She and her family were living in Hood River and then recently bought a house in The Dalles. I got to see their lovely home and it had a lot of fixing up to do. It is almost complete and looks beautiful. It is a very old house built in the early 1900's and is close to a church that I grew up in when we lived there. It was so nice to visit and see her family. Her daughters have grown so much. Hannah is now six & Lauren is 2. They are very bright girls and had lots to show me.

We went to breakfast and poor Hannah wasn't feeling good. If you notice she isn't smiling in the pictures because she didn't feel good. Thanks Todd & Nikki for the wonderful time and I look forward to seeing you again! Please come down south and stay with me anytime. Love, Leah

The Weeks Family!
