Christmas Recap!

We were so busy in the days leading up to Christmas, actually preparing for the big day as well as organizing and packing for our family trip to New York!  Here are some pics of all the craziness!

It was girl's night out on Wednesday for me!  Such a great time!

After running errands all day, Ryan took me to dinner at Kobe's Steaks on Christmas Eve regardless of the icy roads! He worked so hard to make Christmas Eve special...surprising me with little gifts through out the day...=)

Fast forward to Christmas at my parents house...We picked my boys up at 1:00 PM on Christmas day, and headed straight out to Southlake to celebrate with my parents, my sister and her family, and my brother and his!  It's always a great time when we get together!

With 9 grandchildren....it gets a little crazy!!






My precious nieces, Ashlynn & Addyson


Moving on to Christmas with my boys...which just took place about 2 hours ago!

Santa brought Carter and Preston some goodies for their guinea pigs which he has waiting for them at Petsmart to pick up after our trip!  Santa even brought a little harness and leash so they can walk their new pets!




Austin organizing all the presents...

The little photo book I made of our adventure to ICE! If you have never made one of these, you should go to Kodak Gallery and check them out.  They are under $10...depending how many pages you include...and they are a perfect way to remember special times! 

The sweet letter Austin wrote for Ryan...

Carter's "Fur Real" puppy! It opens and closes its eyes depending on whether it's asleep or awake and makes little noises just like a real puppy! I have a feeling it will be coming to New York with us!

Can you tell they were excited!?


Sweet Carter...


So...tomorrow's the BIG day!  The bags are packed, our ski clothes have been mailed to Pop and Grandma's...Ryan's dad said they have 12 inches of snow!!...the crayons, coloring books, games and movies are ready to go! We're picking up Trysten from his mother's home at 11:00 AM and then heading to DFW to fly to New York for 9 days!  There is so much planned...a few surprises here and there for the boys...It's going to be a blast!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND HAVE A GREAT REST OF THE YEAR!!
