Christmas Eve we drove up to Dallas. It was our first Christmas Eve in Dallas in many years! We had dinner at Los Posadas and then spent the evening at my parents house. The kids had a great time playing. Then we headed over to Logan's house for some adult fun and our annual sibling gift exchange. Big Bro had fun staying up with his older cousins. We spent the night at Logan's house. The boys woke up early to find Santa had visited! The kids played with their Santa presents, and we gathered up all our stuff. Then we headed to parents house and began piling all the presents around the tree.
Once everyone gathered, we grabbed some pictures of the kids before we tore into the presents!
After lunch, we began our journey back to Austin. Both boys took a nap for the first half of the drive. Then Lil' Bro woke up screaming. After a bit of consoling, we were back on our way. When we got home, Nicholas' family came over for some dinner snacking and so we could all see Jeremy and Audrey, fresh from the plane!
The day after Christmas, we all enjoyed a great night of sleep! We got ready, packed up our presents and headed over to Nicholas' parents house for our "Dertien Christmas" as Big Bro called it. Christmas #2!
There was lots of cuteness, and lots of toys!
The night of the 26th, we had a little Christmas dinner at our house. It was great fun with delicious food! Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures of the people!
The Sunday after Christmas, we got the best family Christmas picture we are getting this year!
It's been awhile since I posted about our Saturday adventures. The Saturday before Christmas, we had quite a day! We started at Hat Creek for breakfast with the Huebners. We spend many weekend mornings at Hat Creek. We love the playground and pancakes!
After nap, we had a playdate with the Dellingers at our house! The boys had a great time playing together.
Then Kathryn came over to watch the boys so Nicholas and I could got to my work holiday party!
I like to take pictures. I like to read. I like to write. I like to make people laugh, and I aspire to leave my mark by fully documenting my life through scrapbooks, photo albums, journals, emails, and now this blog.
