Speaking of video, I added the list of "labels" for my blog posts on the left. So if you want to see all of the videos, just click the link and they will all come up. If I have any other kinds of repeat postings I'll start labeling them, too.

I'm taking far fewer pictures these days. And here's why. Everytime I get the camera out Zoe wants to hold it and drool on it. If she doesn't get to hold it and drool on it she becomes very dramatic and whines "ma ma ma ma ma". Her favorite "toys" are the camera, phone, and laptop.

We went to Portland Thursday & Friday to see Pete's mom and grandparents before they all left for Hawaii. While at the Yarn Garden, Zoe found this little shopping cart that is used to display boxes of beads. She pushed it around the store pretty well - each adventure ended with a small crash. She's wearing her Halloween outfit, except that we traded the kitty hat for this Christmas tree hat that Jo had just finished knitting.
We had a nice time in Portland, did lots of driving around and a little tax-free shopping [there is no sales tax in Oregon]. We needed to buy a new carseat as Zoe has outgrown her infant-sized one. With our 20% off coupon & no tax we saved quite a chunk of change. The new carseat is the safest available and should fit her for a few years.
I think Portland is more like the Seattle that people think Seattle should be. Everybody walks or rides a bike and there are little nieghborhoods everywhere that are filled with cool shops, small restaurants, and drab-dressed young people looking cool while having vegan Thai food in small restaurants.
