Natalia and I went down to Portland for a Thanksgiving/baby shower/German party.
Here are the photos and video from our parties.

Paul and Allison hosted us (again) at their beautiful home in Portland. Here's Natalia reading Tamaya one
of her favourite stories about Curious George.

Ross and Kelli are now the proud parents of Ryan and Keira. I think this is Ryan.


Full size
I believe this is Keira with Kelli. Those German onesies they made (with Keri) are super cute.


Full size
Keri and Kelli made these sweet outfits for the kids. That's Keira on the left, Ryan in the middle,
and Marley on the right.


Full size
Natalia brought one of her old dance outfits for Tamaya to wear.


Full size
Paul looks like he's about 12 feet tall in this photo with Tamaya.


Full size
Here are Ross and Ryan again.


Full size
You can hardly tell that Natalia is 7 months pregnant in this photo.


Full size
Ross and Kelli, along with Ryan and Keira. They seem to be doing really well considering the change to
their lifestyle.


Full size
The ladies also made a onesie for Natalia and I for our new baby.


Full size
The ladies also hosted a baby shower for Natalia. Kelli and Ross picked us up this sweet rabbit and a
mustache soother.


Full size
Bill showed up to our German festivities with a fair amount of cheer. The kids REALLY like Bill and hung
onto him almost the whole night.


Full size
Jeff's son Zane really enjoyed Tamaya's butterfly wings and wore them around for awhile.


Full size
Look at how happy Zane is with the butterfly wings on.

These German men are "Guden Timezen".


Full size
Now with smiles.


Full size
These German men are "Hotzen Heinees".


Full size
The kids really enjoyed sitting on this little chair. From left to right are Zane, Max, and Tamaya. Note
that kids only really want to play with toys that other kids are playing with. This chair only became
interesting when one of them actually sat in it. Then it was over.


Full size
Kelli brought sugar-free cupcakes for Natalia. She LOVED this cupcake!


Full size
I think Bill read almost all of Curious George. Although most of the book was read in Bill's own style,
which has nothing to do with what's in the book but the kids love it.


Full size
Max got in on the reading fun as well.

As Paul was showing me some seriously awesome Crossfit moves on youtube, Bill said something like, "That's nothing,
get a load of this!" And then he promptly fell on his face and separated his shoulder. It was awesome.


Full size
Bill found my camera and took this. Nice nostril hair dude.


Full size
I also wore my liederhosen to the German festivities. Good times had by all.

Video of Bill singing Pearl Jam



Full size
Paul and I love drinking many different kinds of beer and then singing Pearl Jam. It's my favourite.


Full size
I like to think that this is how Bill goes to sleep every night - wearing his liederhosen, playing a ukelele.
