Oh yes, real life, hello again!

My goodness, this is just how I feel!  My darling Donald has been delightfully not working at the office for a very, VERY lovely 2 weeks.  Just bliss.  This, my friends, is how life should exist.

And consequently, life has looked very different for the past 2 weeks – the holiday season was beautiful – I am thankful.

(let’s be honest, there are more than 2 weeks represented here…but I need to do some serious catch-up!)

My abi-girl was just darling in her first Christmas pageant



We got our first REAL tree as a little family – while our ‘original’ fakerton is still proudly displayed in the office…memories are just the best.


Abi rocked it during her ‘open’ ballet class.

We made the most random, messy, and amazing gingerbread house.

We had so much fun at the Perot Museum…I’ve been waiting for this place to open for SUCH a long time! 



The boys & Daddy turned Nate’s crib into a big-boy bed…it is NOT going well.

We had Donald’s 30th party…such a wonderful day.


All of the roommates came in from A&M…a few little bodies have been added in the past 10 years…


We had a wonderful day celebrating Christmas…

Celebrating New Year’s (at 8 o’clock) with the most delightful crew…

And all the random in between that makes the holidays oh so special.
