Christmas and Good News


Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you had a great holiday. We spent the holiday with Eric's family and it was a lot of fun- we enjoyed spending time together, relaxing, and eating a lot of good food! Here are some pictures we took--

Christmas Eve we ate a great meal and then played some games. Ethan went fishing...

and uncle Matt helped him catch prizes!



Chase wanted to open his Christmas eve present-- PJ's!

I LOVE this picture of Chase but it wouldn't let me flip it...
This was the first present he opened on Christmas morning and he was SO excited for it! He cried when Eric took it to get it out of the package and stared at him until he gave it back. He loved playing with it-- thanks Grandma and Grandpa Stastny!

Chase also like the way soft bear from Grandma and Opa Rindlisbacher, it was bigger than him!


Ethan wanted to play with Chase's toys- most of them were louder and had more lights than his :)

Christmas Pajamas! Gotta love Ethan's cheesy grin...


As for the good news: Eric applied and was accepted to the Podiatry program at Des Moines University in Iowa! He was even offered a partial tuition scholarship! He accepted the invitation a few days ago, so it's official we will be heading to Iowa next fall. School starts the first week in August, so we'll probably leave Alaska mid-July and pick up our stuff in Utah on the way there. It's a 4 year program and then about 2-3 years of residency, so wish us luck!
