Just a glimpse of our Holiday

Before all of our Christmas traveling began, we celebrated Reese's 2nd Birthday! It was a firetruck themed party. A whole bunch of family came for the party and we had a great time.

Uncle David is going to slide with the birthday boy.
Here is Reese with his friends who came to the party. Avery is holding the teddy bear and you can barely see little Mason peaking around the back.

They had so much fun playing together.
Reese was so excited that everyone was there. He just smiled the whole time.

Reese's spot at the table before the party. It isn't a party without cake and icecream!
Papa and Uncle David were trying to help me get a good picture of the kids together. They were so tired, we weren't going to get smiles at this point.
Here is a half smile from Reese, but a good one from Papa.
Reese and Aubrie got a wagon from Papa and Dede. It has seats that face each other. They love it! Here is Aubrie hanging out and reading a book in the wagon.
Reese got a tricycle from Mommy and Daddy. He is already a pro at peddling.
This was when we had Christmas at Grandmother and Poppy's house. The kids got some wonderful gifts.

Aubrie can sit up all on her own.

Busy Holidays

My goodness, it has been a while.Until Saturday I had only been home for a total of 2 days in three weeks. First, the kids and I went to Arkansas with my mom and brother to visit my mom
s side of the family. We had so much fun, but I didn't even take a singal picture the whole time. Shame on me. I am really sad about that. THen we spent some time with our families in DFW. Caleb came up to meet us the Tuesday before CHristmas. We had a wonderful time with both sides of the family. We went to my sister's fiance's families CHristmas Eve party. His family in Honduran so we got to see how another culture celebrate's Christ's birht. It was so great. At midnight everyone goes around hugging and saying Feliz Navidad, and Merry Christmas. We left shortly after that, but they continue celebrating and opening gifts into the early morning. We got to eat traditional Honduran tamales which were delicious. It was a great time. When we got back to my parent's house little Reese was sitting on the couch with a pillow propped up behind him, probably so he wouldn't get too comfortable and fall asleep. He was just happy chillin with grandpa. I wish I had taken a picture of that, but he got off the couch quickly to greet us as we walked in. He is such a funny guy. We spent the holidays driving back and forth from family to family. We also had to make a quick trip home since Caleb was preaching the Sunday after Christmas. Then we went back to DFW to have one more Christmas and celebrate New Year's.

From there we headed to Denver again for the National Conference of Youth Ministers. We got to see Blake and Whitney again. But like before, it just isn't enough. We have got to do something about the distance between us. We need our best friends!

That's all for now. I have to go change a stinky diaper. Ah, life.
