We are back!!

Honestly I don't even know where to start! So, much has happened over the holidays and I haven't blogged in over 2 months!!
To start out we had a great time with our family. It was so good to be back in our home town, since we hadn't been there in almost a year. It was fun to show everyone our sweet new baby. He is such a pleasant little guy and growing so fast. Ava is our little ball of fire and had a lot of fun with her aunts, uncles and grandparents...and I can't forget all of her little cousins she loved to play with!! There is never a dull moment with our sweet Ava!
After Thanksgiving Justin came back to Omaha to finish hie finals. We were apart for 3 WEEKS!! It was a long and tuff 3 weeks apart. To top in all off, the day he was going to come back there was bad weather. So he ended up not coming home until the next day. I was glad he made it back to me safely! Here are a few pictures from our trip to Idaho!

Eli in front of the Christmas tree at moms. Eli was so content looking at all the lights on the tree.

One morning we woke up and it snowed..A LOT!! Ava was all ready to go out side first thing in the morning. She was still in her PJs and heading for the door, I bundles her up as warm as I could and sent her outside. When she came inside she was ready for a warm bath.

The break was nice to just lounge around taking naps, playing games or watching Christmas movies.
We went to my dads on Christmas Eve to celebrate with him. He bought all the grandkids cute matching Chirstmas outfits. You can tell they sure love him!
Ava and her cousin Emma. They are so cute together! They enjoyed having tea party together and played house. It was fun to see her play so cute with her cousins!

Wow! You can imagine my shock to find an update on your blog :) Just kidding. I wish I could have come home and spent some time with you guys. Seems like we probably won't see you until this coming summer. We need to start planning our "friend" trip soon.
