We had a white Christmas in Texas! What fun memories were made, we will never forget Ava's first Christmas and the first white Christmas since 1926! Here is my big family that we spent Christmas eve and Christmas morning with. It was so fun! Sometimes loud and a little chaotic but thats's the way we like it! Lot's of laughing and fun stories. I am so thankful for each of these people I get to call family. I am blessed!

This weekend my sweet husband and I went to see the Nutcracker at Bass Hall! It was wonderful!! There are so many things I love about going to the ballet....getting all dressed up, seeing everyone else all dressed up in holiday attire, the gorgeous Bass Hall and just the idea of going to the ballet is so classy to me. I am one of those fortunate girls, my husband loves stuff like this. His mom trained him well! I don't have to beg him to take me and he doesn't complain and dread going. He wore a suite and I wore a little black dress...ok it wasn't that little..but it was as little of a black dress as I will ever wear.. We left Ava with my Mom and off we went! What a fun evening! I think we might make a tradition of it. Oh and how fun will it be in a couple years when we can take Ava? She will love it I am sure!

Here is a snapshot of our life the last couple weeks. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving started out by us running (well Ava rode) a 5k, my first one! I was happy to finish but will NOT report my time! Ava is gaining a love for food. She isn't real interested in and would prefer bits of our food over anything that resembles baby food or is fed to her with a spoon. She is crawling all over the place and attempts to stand. She turned 7 months old last week and is my little buddy! We have a blast together during the day and I LOVE the excitement she shows when her Daddy comes home. She is a true joy to us both and we cannot imagine our life without her!
Merry Christmas! Take some time to enjoy those around you and give a little extra love to your family. It's a season to celebrate the gifts God has given us and what greater gift then families to love!
