Our Christmases 2013

It's been a great Christmas season for the Kubeczka's this year...very full, but also very fun! We started Christmas Eve at my in-law's house... It was awesome watching the kids tear into their gifts...Adalynn really got into her gifts!! LOL
The cutest time was watching the big girls primp her and play with her little light up vanity set!
This was a favorite gift for us...it's a tile with custom lettering my MIL had made for us.
We had a lot of outtakes for this shot...LOL...I thought about posting them all just for the laugh!
Christmas Day Emma was the first one up - Aaron actually got up earlier, but just moved from his bed to ours & went back to sleep! Later Emma woke us up to let us know that Santa had paid us a visit! Speaking of Santa - does he wrap gifts he brings to your house?? Santa doesn't wrap the gifts he leaves at our house, only the gifts from Mommy & Daddy - just curious what everyone else does.
Means they get to play with Santa gifts with…

Blake ~ Christmas 2013

We missed Miss Blake's 9 month photoshoot (sick kiddos, bad weather, sick adults...), but we caught up and got her 10 month and Family Christmas pics all rolled into one photoshoot! I have to say, in the few months since I've seen her this little girl's personality has really blossomed! She was smiling and laughing and talking so much!! It was a very fun photoshoot!!

And hubby got to see me work, too. He was running errands with me last Thursday and I told him he had to be my assistant for the photoshoot b/c I wasn't going to drop him off at home and drive back out to the Kirby house, then back to our house to get him and finish our errands. No way! Too much driving! Honestly...I think he head fun! And he was a pretty good assistant, too - LOL!



She isn't really standing all that well on her own yet, but we caught the 2 seconds she did stand tall - and that was all wee needed! Ha ha!

Kids Christmas Party & Santa Town (lots of pics)

Saturday was a FULL day!! Fun...but full!

First thing in the morning we headed to my office for the annual Kids' Christmas Party...which was a blast like always! Pics with Santa, face painting, balloon animals (in our case a fishing pole and a flower), dancing, games, snacks, cookie decorating...there was a lot to do!
When the party was over we headed home to get all bundled up and headed out for Santa Town! We stopped on the way for lunch and went to College Station, first - had to show Michael some of the places we used to frequent during my college years! ;)
After the short trip down memory lane we headed into Santa Town - this was our first visit, but I know it won't be our last! It was c-c-c-cold, but so much fun and the lights were so beautiful!! Snow, hot cocoa, kettle corn, live music, s'mores, shopping, bonfires, longhorns, Santa, hayride through all the lights...uh-maz-ing! We had so much fun...so much that the kids didn't make it five minutes down the road…

Recent Photo Shoots

I've been busy with two little babies lately - Blake & Blakely!! Yes, both girls & not related - I have to catch myself to make sure I'm using the right name! LOL

Miss Blakely is 4 months old - I did her first shoot a few weeks ago, but she wasn't a very happy camper, so we cut it a little short...got some cute pics, though...
So, last weekend I went back to finish our shoot! She was a lot more pleased about this 2nd session and daddy was there this time, too so we got shots of the whole family!
Miss Blake is now 9 months old - I got to shoot her 3 month & 6 month shots...and Sunday I'm going to take her 9 month pictures! I can't wait - she's sitting up on her own now and crawling around a bit I think so we'll have a fun time!
A couple weeks ago I also took the kids to Old Town Spring to take pictures - I wasn't planning to use them for our Christmas card so we weren't dressed for the holidays, but I really like how the pictures turned …

Emma's 7th Rocking Chair

Every year on their birthday the kids sit in the rocking chair I got from my Grannie when I was pregnant with Emma and I take their picture. I think it's awesome way to watch them grow. This year looking back on Emma's past 6 pictures I got a little teary eyed I must admit...just from last year she's changed so much to me!!!

This is Emma's picture this year at 7... And here are her past 6 pictures...*sniff* *sniff*
It's amazing how much a year changes things! She looks like such a "big kid" now...

Happy Birthday Baby!!!

My baby girl is SEVEN years old today!!! I cannot believe it - I know it's cliche, but time really does fly by way too fast!! Saturday we had a painting party for her. It was a tough weekend being that it was a holiday weekend and lots of kids were out of town, but that didn't keep her from having a blast! She had so much fun painting with friends... ...and believe it or not, playing in a ball pit. I guess they're never too old. Showing off their masterpieces! Teen Beach Movie is a current fave at our house! Being silly - they all "buried" each other under the balls! I thought everyone's pieces turned out awesome!!! This morning Frank, our Elf, had a surprise for Emma - he made balloon animals last night for her and Aaron! He made a butterfly, a crown, a sword, a puppy, and a flower...I think he did a pretty good job for having such small hands! LOL I even let her have bday cake for breakfast this morning!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY GIRL!!! WE LOVE YOU SO…
