Christmas 2012

We finally made it to AZ. High and dry! Although it was a little cooler than normal. The surprise for me was that my Grandma Stoyer came down to spend Christmas with us. What a treat. I can't believe I didn't get a picture taken with her. What was my Mom thinking! 
Is that a present for me under the tree? Yes!  A sock monkey!! Thanks Grandma. I do love the sock Monkey. And yes, that is our tree from Washington that was floating in the flood!
 


  Back home in Seattle. Calmer weather prevails for now!



Flood

I haven't blogged since Thanksgiving so thought I'd take MLK day to get caught up with all of you! A lot has happened since then. Most notably a week before Christmas we had what is considered a "king" tide (over 14 ft.) along with that came a wind storm. Even though my Papa was pumping water out of the bulkhead to the street and we had sandbags, the whole apartment flooded. I was scared. I am  pretty low to the ground and can't swim! I was upstairs with Jerry (our landlord) through the ordeal. Mom and Dad managed to get most of the furniture to high ground. In the end between 7 and 10 inches of water was in the apartment. Interesting fact . . .  My bed floats as do most of my toys. We stayed with Jerry and Yvonne until we headed south to AZ for Christmas and warmer/dryer weather!
