Our week of Christmas.

What a week. We have had a lot of snow and ice in Portland. On Monday we went and got Jared's sister Nicole from her snow bound house in Salem. We had so much fun spending time with her these last five days. Because she lives in Salem we have really only done one thing with just her the last 8 months. So it was very nice to have Everett and us play with Coley. We had Christmas eve with the Carter Family. We did the Nativity, treats and a white elephant exchange. We laughed so hard and had such a good time. Christmas morning was fun. Santa was very good to all of us. Everett really got the handle of opening presents. Christmas brunch was at the Carters again. One of the best parts of Christmas is my Mom's strawberry waffles. We opened some gifts there and loved spending time with family. We had Christmas dinner at Misty's with Jared's family. Everett had a blast with his cousins. With no nap all day, Everett was going on pure adrenaline by about 4 pm. The day after Christmas we took Aunt Nicole to dinner for her birthday. It was so fun to spend her birthday with her. We took these pictures at Chevy's. Have fun watching the two video scrapbooks we made from this week. We hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and have a safe and great New Year.

Oregon Zoo in December

We got a zoo pass for a Family gift this year. We love it. We have gone three times this past week. We went to Zoo Lights with Papa and Aunt Nicole, were we had so much fun and Everett loved it. Then we went with Aunt Sarah and Uncle Illya. We saw the Baby Elephant and three other elephants walking in a line and playing around, it was awesome. Jared's favorite part of the zoo is the the elephants. Then we went again with just the tree of us. We watched the polar bear swimming back and forth. He would swim forward, then swim back to the glass, and use his HUGE paws to push off the glass! It was pretty cool to watch Everett react to the huge bear!
