Together Forever!

We had the awesome opportunity to have Andrew sealed and blessed this weekend. It was such a fun experience for our family and one that we have all been looking forward to. Eric's mom made the kids all white clothes for the temple. They looked SO cute! My friend took family pictures before the sealing so I will post those when I get them. It was so cool it be in the temple with all the kids. It has been almost 3 years since we were there last to have Tanner sealed to us.
The kids had to wait a while in the waiting room for everything to start. Thanks for all the help we got.
Aubree has been looking forward to this day for so long. She was so excited to be able to go to the Temple with Andrew. Eric's mom made her a dress, necklace, bracelet, and slippers. She looked so beautiful.
Trav was the most restless waiting.
My mom holding Andrew as they waited. Andrew is such a pleasant boy. He was hungry and tired and still smiled and was happy.
My sister Amy entertaining the boys. Tanner loved being at the Temple. He has asked a lot of times since if we could go back. When I changed into my white clothes for our pictures he said, "Oh Mom, you look so cute!" What a great day!
Poor Aubs was pretty sick all weekend. She had sores all in her mouth and couldn't talk or eat. She still was a nice girl.
Travis had to have his Wheat Thins.
The kids had a fun weekend with cousins. They roasted marshmallows and had s'mores.
Dinner with cousins.
Andrew has the best laugh. Love this boy!

Eric was on Spring Break this last week. It was SO SO nice to have him around. The kids were in heaven. He took them out everyday and the kids were in heaven. One night we went to the park and had a picnic.
I love this picture of the kids. I don't have a lot of pictures with me in them.

We made St. Patrick Day cookies. The kids loved painting on the frosting and using the sprinkles.
Trav loves Andrew. I have so many pictures of Travis laying his head on Andrew.
Travis loves to wear hats.
More fun games with cousins.
We went to Wenatchee for a few days during Spring Break. The kids love it at the Nygard's. They have a chicken coop and they went everyday to feed them and collect the eggs.
Aubs and Tann are both holding eggs in the picture above. We sure love our families.
