The Christmas Season

We have had a wonderful Christmas season. Here are some pictures from some of the things we have done this year to celebrate. Between decorating Christmas cookies and visiting Santa we have been very busy! Christmas Eve was spent with Grandma and Grandpa Alban at Auntie B's house. We went to church, ate some yummy Pasado's, and then went back to Aunt Brendin's house for presents and dessert. Hannah enjoyed the time with family and so did we. Christmas morning began at our house where we had to force Hannah to keep opening presents. That's right, I said FORCE. She would open a present and then want to play with it for at least 30 minutes. I wish we had wrapped about half of her presents! The rest of the day was spent with Grammie, Big Daddy, Uncle J and April. We ate a delicious lunch and opened lots more presents! This weekend my grandmother came into town so we are enjoying some time this week with her. What a blessing it is to be able to be with family at this time of the year. We hope that your Christmas season was as wonderful as ours, and we wish you a Happy New Year!

Cupcakes with Grammy

On Tuesday when I was tutoring Grammy, Hannah, and Lauren made "Happy Birthday Jesus" cupcakes. They had a great time and made quite the mess.

Thanks Grammy for making cupcakes with me. I had alot of fun! I love you!

Cutie Pie

Lauren is FIVE months old already! So hard to believe! We love you sweet Bear!

Safety Town

Sunday night we bundled up and headed out to Frisco Fire Safety Town. They had lights and decorations throughout the little town as well as Santa. After exploring outside we got to sit in a fire truck and listen to a story about Christmas. Hannah really enjoyed it and Lauren was a great sport as always.

Away in the manger...

no crib for a bed. The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head! The stars in the sky look down where he lay. The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. Isn't he cute? Creative I thought. Hannah made it at school today and I thought it was worth sharing.

Come on...Let's dance!!

Thanks Uncle J and Aunt April for being good sports and standing on the fireplace to dance with me! I love you guys!


Who doesn't love a good ole' corn dog?

She did it!!!!

Neither of my children were very interested in rolling over at an early age. I knew that Hannah turned just fine and she didn't really start rolling until about six months. So when three and four months came and went I was not worried at all about Lauren when she still didn't roll yet. But not any more! She did it! She rolled from her tummy to her back today. I don't think it will be long before she can roll the other way because she can get herself to on to her side. Way to go Bear!
