Andrew and Emmy (my mom) taking to the rink
My uncle Bob and my cousin Ali's little girl Audrey (Matthew's "cousin")Matthew's "Spiderman" cake. I have always been big into making the birthday cakes. But this year Matthew really wanted a "Spiderman" Cake, so we enlisted in some professional help.
Matthew and Andrew devouring the cake.
My all time favorite picture. Andrew absolutely LOVED skating. He skated for a good two hours. Let's just say he slept REALLY well that night!!!
We had such a good time. Thanks to everyone who made it out to his party. It was a birthday party we will never forget!!
Our big boy turns 5 today! It seems so hard to believe that 5 years have gone by... To think we weren't sure we would ever be able to have kids... Now two little ones later, life couldn't be more perfect.
Matthew with his first birthday cake... Seem's like so long ago.
And Matthew now (well underwater). He loves to be a clown!!!
We are so very lucky to have this wonderful child in our life!! Happy Birthday Matthew!!!

This is Matthew's cat Sebastian (this picture is when he was but an itty-bitty kitty)
This is Sebastian now (he is an absolutely beautiful cat, and about the sweetest and most loveable that we have ever met!)
This is Sebastian when he isn't being his best (this is a bread basket, on the KITCHEN COUNTER--thank goodness the bread is gone!)
This is Andrew trying his best to convince Sebastian that his crib is a good place for both of them to sleep. Sebastian has yet to be convinced.
This is the newest addition to the Scott Family; Rhino (aka Matthew's hamster). I'm not sure how many animals we'll end up with once Andrew figures out he can ask for an animal too...
Rhino LOVES running in his wheel. But somehow (I know, I should have known) I didn't realize that hamsters are nocturnal.
And, just in case there aren't enough animals inside, we (Matthew, Andrew, Mommy and Sebastian--who didn't quite make the picture) spend our time watching (and feeding) the squirrels on the deck.

Sarah, Matthew and Andrew (the boys look all too thrilled!)Matthew decorating the tree (we didn't have ornaments on the bottom half--thank you Andrew)
Once again, we had the wonderful opportunity to go to Jen (my sister's best friends) house for their annual gingerbread house party. This year was even more fun then last year, as there was a house full of kids. We had so much fun making the houses. Matthew really got into it this year, as did most of the kids his age. We had an absolute blast. It is truly one of our favorite parts of the holidays!!
We're getting there.....
A few of the houses didn't withstand all the candy and collapsed (ours did on the car ride home)
Matthew's finished product (after it collapsed, we had to go buy another kit and do another one... This time it lasted until after Christmas).
Andrew all bundled up and kind-of enjoying the snow!
The boys on the sled. It was the only way Andrew really enjoyed the snow. Matthew insisted on wearing a full face hat and goggles... It kind of looked like he was in Alaska!
Overall, the last two months have been great. We had a wonderful Christmas (though Andrew was terrified of Santa--and I mean terrified) surrounded by our family and friends. We got to spend some quality time with our good friends visiting from Alaska (and finally had Andrew baptized, because they were visiting). We always try and take time during this time of year to thank God for all that he has blessed us with. We feel extremely fortunate and blessed in our life and couldn't ask for more. We are so lucky!
~Oh and for all of you who were praying for Jake with his job search, it was successful. On December 12th, he started his new job with the UW. It is a dream position for him, and he is loving every minute of it. The lucky thing for us (especially given this economy) is that he was only out of work for 6 weeks. We were VERY lucky!
