During the boys Christmas break and between sicknesses, Bryan took them sledding a few times.  Here's one of his pics from that.....

Then when both my sisters were visiting a bunch of my family went sledding together.  Tara's kids came, but Matt and Tara were up visiting his parents and brother.

Can't put my arms down!

Holiday Get Together

My twin sister Tara and her family came to visit after Christmas, and my cousin Wade and his family also were here, so my Grandma and Grandpa Newman had everyone over for a dinner.  

This is what Bryan calls the digital lounge....haha 
Tara met Aubrey for the first time.

Christmas 2012

Christmas was a lot of fun!  It came and went too fast though!  We spent the night at Bryan's parents.  The boys were so excited to spend the night they wanted to pack their suitcase three days before!  Right when they woke up on Christmas Eve they packed up and exclaimed they were ready for Grandpa's and Nana's!  They weren't too happy when I told him it wasn't time yet.  :)  We went over and had a very yummy dinner.  We were glad Peter and Jessica could be there and they spent the night also!

The beautifully-decorated Santa table 

Austin looking through the Christmas books.

The love birds Peter and Jessica ;)

Notice Austin lying flat on his back.  He fell on his face on the wood floor and was making sure not to get a bloody nose.

Grandpa reading the nativity with help from Ethan showing the pictures.

Austin's turn to help.

After the Nativity reading we each opened up one gift from Grandpa and Nana....always beautifully wrapped!
 hahaha.....the Justin Bieber wrapping paper makes me laugh!

More floor sliding!  Getting a head start!

The rest of these are from Christmas day.  

We went to my parent's house for Christmas dinner, but I forgot to take more pictures other than my Dad holding Aubrey!  

What a great day!
