Overdue post

Well, I've been so busy with traveling over the holidays, that I just haven't felt like posting. Since it's been a while, this is gonna be a long post, so hang on!

We started off the holidays decorating a tree on Highway 360 here in Austin with Chez and Cody. There is this stretch along the highway where people just pull over and decorate random trees, but it looks pretty cool and is our attempt to "Keep Austin Weird." Since this was our first experience, our tree didn't look that great (we didn't have many ornaments), but we learned lots. Namely, go earlier in December, so all the small trees aren't taken!

We had a couple of cold days, during which Colt insisted in going outside to play. So, I bundled him up really well. I love this picture because he is so bundled up that he can hardly get inside of his car.
This is another picture I took that I thought was cute because of the chin :)))
We headed to Fort Worth before Christmas and got together with my side of the family. It was SO great because EVERYONE was there! This year there were 3 great grand children and Colt had a blast playing with Christopher, who is just 3 months older.

For some reason, I didn't get any pictures of my Dad or Jennifer or Ty's family. But here is Colt playing with some of the gifts they gave him. "I will take YOU to the hoop!"...

Like this!

Cody and Chez got Colt a push bubble lawn mower that he LOVES! He plays with it nonstop in the backyard. Gotta say I love it too. It makes a good deal of noise (like a real lawn mower!) so I can be in the kitchen and still tell where in the yard he is.

We had a great Christmas holiday and loved all the time we were able to spend with our families! We also had a great New Years (which I'll post about in a later blog as soon as I get some pictures from my dad - hint, hint - so don't count me down and out on blogging yet!)

Hey Charis! I just wanted to check in and see how you were?! Looks like you had a blessed holiday. I'd love to catch up and see how things are going with your pregnancy and what your plans are for your birth this time. Are you going to get your VBAC? Sending positive vibes your way. :)

I love that picture of Colt in the car all bundled up - he looks like such a chunk!! :)
