Christmas Season

We've been having a very merry Christmas Season! Here is a little picture update...

Even if you don't "do" Santa... its a lot of fun to dress your baby up!

Evie got to meet her Uncle Joey... Hubby's "little" brother who has been stationed in Iraq the last year. They hit it off :)

Evie hiding among the presents underneath a friend's tree.

We went with some friends to see the lights on the Riverwalk and the Alamo. It was beautiful, and Evie was very patient while I read all the signs. I just can't be there without being moved by the valiant sacrifices those men made.

SO pretty!

Uh oh. Someone rolled out the cutout cookie dough just a little too thick. :)

I know what this nativity scene needs... a baby.

We had a chance to participate in a live nativity scene. It was so much fun playing Mary and Baby Jesus.

Gigi and Grandpa's oh so cute Christmas Card Picture.

I hope you are all having a very blessed Christmas season, and enjoying the preparation! The big day is almost here! May we all remember truly what this day is really about.

It's been a while!

But I'm back :) Here's to being better about blogging in the new year...

But for now, here are some pictures of Miss Evangeline's baby dedication! For the first time, I tried my hand at cake decorating! I really enjoyed it, and I read up a lot on how to make the perfect cake. I jokingly have been calling my research and new meal planning techniques "wife college" :-D

Our little family!

This one ended up being our Christmas card picture.

With family.

Grandpa loves Evie!

With Hubby's parents at my parent's house.

Great-great Aunt, Uncle, Great Grandma, and Grandpa :)

Hubby has been working very hard on our home- he de-popcorned the ceilings and painted all the walls such a pretty light gray color. As soon as he finishes installing new lighting in the kitchen and we get some things hung up on the walls again, I'll be posting pictures of that! May you all have a very blessed day as we prepare for Christmas!
