Christmas / New Year's Celebration

We had games for all the kids and some of the best food and what was the best part was no one had to worry about cleaning up their house (before or after), no one had to cook and the best part, no one had to do dishes!!!

Both were so much fun and I think everyone had a blast playing!!
I have to say I am sure it wasn't even for the kids to know which way to look with three cameras pointed at them...I don't think I got one with them all looking my way! LOL Cookie time - she took this seriously! Lego Score! Christmas Day we didn't leave the house except to go to church! I love Christmas morning...Aaron came in and crawled in the bed with us. He snuggled up a bit and then after a while he leaned into my ear and whispered "Santa brought me Criss Cross Crash!" - and then he just snuggled back up with me! It wasn't till a few minutes later when Emma was standing by the …

Moody Gardens Iceland & Festival of Lights

I could seriously overload this post with all the pictures that I took - there was just so much to see at Moody Gardens this year for Iceland and the Festival of Lights. We met up with my family in Galveston and it was a blast!!!
The Ice Slide was definitely a favorite!! All the cousins had so much fun together and it was nice to experience a little cold for's been in the 80s around here lately, so it was nice to have a reason to wear a coat!! LOL
