We were in Wenatchee for Christmas and had a lot of fun with the Nygard family.  We are grateful they let us stay at their house so long.
I didn't get pictures of the kids in their Christmas PJ's till Christmas morning since Jared was already in bed by the time the older kids got their jammies on.
I don't think Tanner or Travis have worn any other pajamas since.
I didn't get enough pictures from Christmas morning.  We Skyped with Eric's little brother Brian, who is serving a mission in Uruguay.  It was so fun to see him and his smiling face.  We miss him, but are so proud of him and his hard work.  
Travis ended up getting a few more Tiger things.
I ended up with not enough pictures of our fun Christmas break.  We played a lot of sock dodgeball, kickball, Wii (Just Dance), and dominoes.  
It was fun spending time some of the Nygard kids.  Brandon made the coolest blanket chest for his mom out of some old pallets.  
Lynnette and Kirsten let me take some pictures of them.  They are cute girls!
This is the one of the few pictures I have of Eric from break (he is working on building a fire in the fireplace).  It was so GREAT having him around for over two weeks.  Eric's parents even watched the kids for a night, so we could have our first night away since Jared was born.  I am so grateful for Eric!
For Christmas Eve we acted out the Christmas story.  Tanner was Joseph, Aubree was Mary, and Travis was a shepherd.  I almost posted a picture of me, but I couldn't do it.  I am now starting my last trimester of this pregnancy and gained way too much weight between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  
There wasn't much new snowfall in Wenatchee over the break, but the kids still wanted to sled in the icy snow everyday.
I have one last post about Andrew's Angel Day and I am all caught up.

Cute Christmas pics. I've gained a lot more than I wanted to this pregnancy as well. There was just so much baking and yummy treats around in November and December... Maybe I can even things out over the next two months. Or not. :)
