We had such a lovely December.  I just love the holidays!  Asher started walking really well, even trying to run.  He is my rough and tumble little boy, for sure.  I don't think he's ever without a bruise on his body or face somewhere- he climbs everything, for better or worse.  He doesn't have much of a sense of what's not a good idea to flip over the edge of, whether that is a bed or a bathtub. :-p  He started signing, which I just love!  His first sign was "more"... as in "more cheesy poofs" :)  Which is just perfect for him.  He's a bit of a chub, still nursing all the time, and sleeping with mommy and daddy, and treating me like an all-night buffet!  Hopefully we'll be fixing that soon, lol.  Here he is in his new mama-made camo pants.  Every boy needs camo pants, and Asher is too 'fluffy' for the ones in the store!

Asher was not a fan of any Santa anywhere!

Mommy and her girl :)

With Gigi!

We took a very last minute trip to Aggieland to see the Heisman announcement.  It was SO much fun.  Hubby said at about 11 am, lets go to College Station.  At 1, we were on the road!  We spent the night there and made so many great memories.  We even got a picture with Reveille!

We spent lots of time at the parks around our neighborhood.  Evie and Asher both just love to go outside and play!

 My brother got engaged! YAY!  I can't wait to have a new sister :)

Waiting for a balloon animal at breakfast with Santa.  We went with my grandparents and had such a wonderful time.  Evie got her face painted, as you can see. 

We are working on tricycle riding.  Right now its a lot of mommy pushing :)

We have already started our Valentines crafts!  For some reason, Valentines is one of my favorite holidays.  I go all out.  Expect a post on that soon :-D

 Ah, glitter crafts.  So much mess, but so pretty!

Happy New Years!!! :)  I pray we are blessed and grow closer to God in this coming year!

October with the Family

I realize this is an old post, but I wrote it and forgot to publish it!  So here it is anyway :)

We are having such a nice October so far, but with LOTS of traveling.  Which is lots of fun of course, but this momma is ready for some routine :) 

 My parents rented an unbelievably beautiful home on the river to stay in while my brother was here.  Wonderful memories were made, with lots of kayaking, a little swimming (in the very cold water), and lots of good conversation and great food!  Evangeline loved kayaking especially, and keeps asking to go back to the house.  I tried to explain it wasn't really ours :)  Though everyone wishes it was!  Asher took his first steps while we were there. 

We got a picture of the whole family together.  It was wonderful having my brother here- we look very much forward to the day he will hopefully be living nearby.  He is almost done with his residency as a general surgeon, and next year will be completing his fellowship in trauma surgery, then we hope a move back to Texas!

We've been doing lots of very fun fall preschool crafts.  Here's Evie decorating her fall leaf cookies.  They were amazingly yummy!

Hubby's next youngest brother got married!  We had so much fun at the wedding.  Evie stayed with her gigi and pawpaw and had loads of fun, but we took our little nursling along of course!
