New Friends and Great Friends

One of the best parts about the holidays is getting to spend so much time with family and friends. Today the boys got to meet a new friend, little miss Avery Rene Kawahara (I have been waiting for a time to use pink!!!). Today was her 4 week birthday and we were all glad that we got the chance to finally meet her. Lucas was a little fussy while she was here...maybe because it was the first time that there has been someone smaller than him in the same room! Anyways here are some pictures of Miki and Tricia's beautiful baby girl and our handsome little boys!Nathan and kind of looks like they are holding hands in this picture!

Tricia and one of our little guys, Miki and Avery

Avery can't take her eyes off of her mama!

Lucas introducing Avery to Scortch! to check out more about Avery be sure to take a peek at her blog...

Tonight Adam and Mel and Amber came over to stay with the boys while John and I went out for supper! What a treat. We are pretty lucky about being able to get out to get stuff done but it seems like we always have a list with 20 things to do and we get through about 10 so there is no time for much other than errands! Tonight we went out for a nice supper and then a quick Costco run (might as well get one of the errands done when we can!). It was the weirdest feeling to sit at the restauraunt and wait for our meals...neither of us could think of the last time that we have sat with nothing to actually made me feel a little uneasy!!! Here are some pictures of the boys and our amazing friends!
Mama in training!

When we got home the boys were all having a fun time...

Christmas take two!

So today we celebrated Christmas with the Alexander side of the family. We packed the boys up and headed out first thing (our first thing is about 9:00ish).
Here are our three little fellas with their new buddies. We put them in their carseats for the drive out and when we got there we unzipped the covers and found Lucas with both of his arms wrapped around Scortch, Nathan was giving Jeepers Peepers kisses and Matthew and Bear were face to face checking each other out! I can tell already that these stuffed animals will not be left behind on many trips!Matty and his Bear
The Lizard and Scortch!
Nate and the Great Camel!Our Family, mom and dad looking pretty tired!
