Just got some great news! Rather than going to San Francisco for the weekend we are going to Portland! Jason is taking me to one of my favorite places in the whole world for our anniversary! Wahoo!!!
Courtney Wilkinson Faris - Portland, OR?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yep Portland, OR. I'm trying to convince Jason to move there instead of St. George, UT. :o)
Courtney Wilkinson Faris - awe take me with
Kris Kemp-Erickson - lol I wish I could. Jason had just enough sky, hotel and car miles to go to Portland after he had booked our Disneyland trip in May.
Courtney Wilkinson Faris - yeah..
Courtney Wilkinson Faris - You going to go to Astoria?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Maybe we were thinking of sight seeing around Portland and maybe going to Seaside and Cannon Beach. So if we do yeah we will see Astoria too. I'd like to see Taylor's new store if we end up over that

Thanksgiving day is a day when we pause to give thanks for the things we have. “Veterans Day” is a day when we pause to give thanks to the people who fought for the things we have. But I would also like to give thanks to all of the civil servants i.e. Police Officers & Firefighters especially. They (meaning soldiers and civil servants) work so hard and don't get nearly enough appreciation or pay for all they sacrifice and do... So I'm saying THANK YOU!

Happy birthday to my son Christopher (the one that I placed up for adoption when he was born). He's turning 14 today! Can't believe how big he is already. I miss you and love you sweet boy/man and think about you everyday!
Carmen Remington Jacobus - Would be great for him to meet his other siblings one day huh?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yeah it would, I'm hoping he will be able to meet them all.
Jackie Wilkinson - I can't believe he is that old already!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yep in a couple of years he'll be driving.

Thanksgiving '13

We had a great Thanksgiving this year - we hosted it at our house this year!  I didn't think to get out the camera until before dinner started and then again after we ate dinner, so I missed some people.  But we had a good time and I for one am very thankful for family and yummy good food to eat.

Here's some pic's I got.

Can I make a good snack spread or what!

All the yummy food we ate or at least some of it.

Caden calling his Dad & his Dad answering him back.

Sydney as always right in the thick of everything.

Some of the family that came and now hanging out after dinner.

Playing in the leaves, she sure loves jumping and rolling in the big pile of leaves.

Helping Dad make our fire pit.

Sydney and Caden decided to get into the powdered sugar and this was the result.

Sydney "Hero of the Day!"

Sydney was the "Hero of the Day!" today.

I (Kris) got to go and talk about her today in her class at school and she got a Hero medal.  She was pretty excited!

Portland Trip '13

For our 8 year anniversary Jason surprised me (Kris) with a trip to one of our favorite places...
Portland, Oregon (it's been many many years since either of us have been here).
We have both lived in Oregon (separately) and really like this place!

Here's some pic's we took while we were there.

Our hotel with a beautiful view.

We went to Seaside beach it was good to see it again.

Cannon Beach, very pretty!

 We went to where Jason use to live when he was a kid in Hillsboro.

We even saw Santa!

We had a great time.  I have to best husband in the world!!!  Happy anniversary babe, love you.
