Christmas and our time in Oregon

Christmas has come and gone and we have both memories and pictures to share...

We spent Christmas eve day with Mike's dad, Ron and brother, Danny in Corvallis. We then met up with most of Ron's family at a Christmas eve party where Andrew was passed around all evening.

Christmas morning the two boys snuggled up with my brother, Jeff by the Christmas tree.
Everyone enjoyed opening up gifts, it was really fun with the kids. Eden was the only one who really understood what was going on, Andrew understood there was paper to play with and munch on and Noah just slept and looked at everything going on.

The kids all got Christmas outfits, aren't they just darling!!!

Mike and I met up with some friends in Portland. It was good to see a number of friends this visit!

We also spent a lot of time at Grandma Brenda's.
Andrew is really snuggly after his bath!

Andrew loves to jump, even when he is tired!

Time in Oregon

We are really enjoying our time here in Oregon for Christmas. We have been here since the first part of December and it has been a pretty relaxing time so far. Family has enjoyed spending time with us...who are we kidding, they all just want to spend time with Andrew! We went to my sister and Brother-in-law's house first to spend time with them and their two kids, Eden and Noah. This was the first time we had a chance to see Noah and we are in love! While we were there my mom and dad came down to pick out their Christmas tree.

This picture has a story: I asked Mike to take a picture of Andrew, my mom, dad and me. I was holding Andrew at the time and then...right before the picture was taken my mom took Andrew and scooted me out of the picture! Grandparents!!!

Us all bundled up
Eden, Andrew and Noah...So sweet!

Andrew loves to purse his lips and spit ALL THE TIME, we were able to capture this fun stage in a picture.

Andrew LOVES dogs!

More pics and stories to come of our trip to Oregon and the Christmas season...

We went to our friends house in Ft Worth for Thanksgiving and it was FUN! Andrew had a great time, he couldn't get enough of the kids that were there too, he just stared and stared. There were also new toys that he enjoyed exploring. It was good to spend some quality time with good friends and also enjoy the larger city.

We started packing for Oregon and we wanted Andrew to try on a warm outfit that a friend let us borrow, lets just say that he didn't really know what to do with it. HE looked at me like, what are you doing to me mom?!?!
At our friend's house there was this horse that made noise and rocked. He really liked it!

Listen to Andrew making his spitting sound, its his new favorite thing to do!
