Merry Christmas!!

I still can't believe it is Christmas! We are finally getting the cold weather again in Houston and I pray for snow, yeah right. Not happening here.

The girls are so excited Santa is coming tonight. We are ready with our reindeer food for the lawn and had to pick out 2 dozen cookies for Santa since either one of them couldn't decide. We have a full day today with lunch with the Goodwins and attending Christmas Eve Mass.

Tomorrow should be fun. We are waking up to Santa's presents, then off to Debbie and Doug's for Christmas lunch with her brothers. That evening will be the Fletcher Family Christmas which is always fun. Saturday we are headed to Arlington for our Lopez/Dildy Christmas celebration.

I am so excited to see everyone and to give our gifts out. There is nothing better than giving a gift to someone you love and seeing their reaction. I love it!

I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas! Oh- this was one of our recent family pictures. Can you tell this is how we look everyday? Ava not wanting to be photographed, Julia hamming it up for the picture, Chad trying to get Ava to smile and me smiling because they are all so crazy. haha You can't see my belly but it's there, believe me!

I'm back!!

We have been to many a Christmas party this year and after speaking to Mrs. Dickison (thanks by the way), she commented on how she loved my blog. I have totally forgot about this!

Well, I am back! I have been wrapped up in Facebook now I hope to keep up with it like I used to. We have had a crazy past year since my last post.

Let's see:

Chad and I took our first couples trip to Cabo with our Houston friends, came back pregnant (yes. it was planned), celebrated Ava's 3rd birthday, Julie and Jake moved back to Arlington, Laurie got engaged (wedding in Feb) Julia started Kindergarten, Ava started pre-school 3 days a week, Julia turned 6, Chad had shoulder surgery and now I am 8 months along with a baby boy due in Feb!

Now looking at the past year, we have been busy. I hope to keep up with this and post cute pics like Jenny, Katie and Mallie are. The girls have grown up so fast since the last posted picture. Here is a few updated pics..
