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.

Professional Pics

We have a great ward and they threw a shower for Andrew and a few other babies born around him. There is a professional photographer in the ward who gave us the gift of a free photo shoot. I was excited to get some great pictures of Andrew. Her name is Misty Alger, and here is the link to more.

5 Months!

I can't believe Andrew turned 5 months old today. He is such a sweet baby and so loved. He loves each one of his siblings so much. He lights up whenever they come near.

I can't believe that it is already March! We have been busy but doing good.
The kids before church on Sunday. I love how Trav is concentrating on opening a bag of cookies and Aubs tights aren't quite pulled up all the way.
Tanner loves playing with his "windmill."
Andrew is getting so big and is sweeter than ever. At his 4 month appointment he was over 16 pounds. I LOVE how chubby he is getting. He has the sweetest smile and laugh. We are hoping to have Andrew sealed to us in the next two weeks. We are so excited.
The weather has been really nice this winter. This last week it was in the high 50's and Aubree decided she wanted to wear shorts. It ended up a little too cold for her, so she she grabbed her jacket.
My sister gave me a kid's scrub top and Tanner loves to wear it. He wore the stethoscope around his neck for a long time and checked Eric's vitals. Eric was so proud.
We got bored last week and got out Aubree's face paints.
I found Aubree playing with Andrew after their baths. Aubree is so cute with Andrew. She is always entertaining him and holding his hands. He lights up when she walks in the room.
Vampire Tanner. This reminds me of a few weeks ago when Tanner woke up from his nap with a bloody nose and made a mess. When I went in to get him out and I told him it was blood he looked and me, got a smile on his face and said, "Mom, I am vampire!"
Eric has 2 more weeks left in this quarter and then he has Spring Break. We are excited to visit Seattle and look around at housing. It will be nice to get a little break before his last quarter. Eric is so great! We are so proud of him!
Love this picture! So cute!
Trav man. He is growing too fast. He is very particular boy. He loves the alphabet and loves to be read to. I have to read to him his books in a certain way for he won't turn the page.
