Done! Gingerbread! 3 Months! Birthday! Zoo! Swimming!

Eric finished his quarter last night. I think he had close to 10 finals. He was pretty worn out by the time he got home yesterday. We had a party to celebrate with root beer floats.
Travis loves ice cream and root beer, so root beer floats are his new favorite. Tanner drank his so fast I didn't even get a picture of him.
Eric was pretty excited to be done. He is so great! We will make sure and relax a lot before he starts again in three weeks.
We love you Sara!!! Andrew follows Sara everywhere. They are such buds.
Aubs went to her cousin, Maycie's princess party and had tons of fun. I love Aubree's forced camera smile. She is so funny.
I didn't get the groceries put away before I had to feed Jared and this is what I found. Andrew is starting to get into everything more and more. He loves to undo the toilet paper rolls, take clothes out of baskets, and "clean" out the cupboards.
For FHE we decorated gingerbread houses. I always have the best of intentions of making them look nice, but it's too hard. So... at least the kids had fun.
Jared turned 3 months old on Tuesday. I can't believe he is already that old. He fits so perfectly into our family. He is such a good and happy baby. He is now sleeping almost 11 hours a night and it is heavenly. He is smiling a ton, starting to "talk" more and more, and beginning to laugh.
Here Jared is about to laugh. He is so cute!
Andrew is a big doll to Aubree. She is always playing with him, carrying him around, and putting him in her stroller. He actually likes hanging out in her stroller. Andrew is such a sweet boy!
Travis turned 3 last week. He still says he is 2 and Tanner is 3, but it helped for him to see a 3 on his cake. We did two cakes this year for Trav. One with Eric on the weekend and one on the day of his birthday. While we were singing to Trav, Eric is on our laptop (google video chat) singing along. Travis loved his bear cake (Aubs went crazy with the sprinkles).
Travis is going through a stage of dressing himself over and over. He wakes up from his nap with his clothes backwards, inside out, or different clothes altogether. In the pic above you can see the tag of his undershirt. I am sure his pants were on backwards too. At least he dresses himself... at least that is what I tell myself.
On Travis' birthday he wanted to go to the zoo. It was really cold and rainy outside, so we went to the zoomasium.
Travis' first cake (brownies).
The neck on his spiderman pj's is so stretched out because he likes to take it off pulling it down around his shoulders.
Cute boys. Tanner is such a good big brother. His little brothers really look up to him and copy everything he does.
Last years Christmas sweaters.
Aubree is the best big sister!
Aubree, Tanner, and Travis have been taking swimming lessons and loved it!
Aubs graduated to the 2nd level and is so close to swimming.
Tanner loves to splash and has no fear.
We are leaving this week for Christmas break. We are grateful to be able to celebrate the birth of our Savior. We hope you are all well and have a wonderful Christmas!!!
