This weekend we went down to Baltimore to visit my Aunt Kristen and her family. It was so much fun! It took us 3 hours to get there because of the snow (it'd usually only take 1 1/2). They made us a delicious dinner on Friday night, then we packed all eight of the us up on Saturday morning and went to the Washington D.C temple. Jon and I went to the first session then we switched and Kristen and Ben did a session together. All told, it took quite a bit of work to make it to the temple, but I think it helped me appreciate being there all the more. I felt Heavenly Father's love for me and a greater desire to reflect to light of the Savior.
Autumn and Naoma are ready for a little sister of their own (coming in about 5 weeks) and did a great job taking care of Suzy. She just wouldn't hold still for a picture with Naoma though.
Here are a bunch of videos of just normal, every day things around our house. I love getting some videos of the things we do all the time - my favorite family home videos my Dad took was when he just let the camera roll.
Lily loves her play kitchen. Thanks again Emma for giving it to her.
the girls love to play on the stairs. Suzy spends a fair amount of her time on them.
Jon got his own set of gymnastics trainer rings for Christmas and now he finally has a place to use them. You can't use them in a normal doorway because its too narrow. He puts a long piece of wood on the floor at the top of the stairs to distribute the weight from the rings. I think his only regret is that he dosen't have enough room to do work on some of the crazier stuff like an iron cross. We'll just have to build a huge gym in our house with real rings for that one.
