My favorite things

Friday night I hosted a Favorite Things party.  Everyone picked their favorite thing under $6 and brought three of them to exchange.  We drew names and everyone went home with three new favorite things! 

Some of the favorites were Turbie Twist Towels, coconut oil, fancy laundry detergent, Uncle Chris' steak seasoning, salsa, Burts Bees tinted lip moisturizer, bath bombs and pineapple cider. 

Some of my favorite ladies! 

We had the best time and want to make it an annual event!

Austin's 10th Birthday celebration

Austin is 10!  He decided to take some friends to a Stars hockey game to celebrate!

The game was so much fun!  The Stars won and the boys got on the jumbo-tron! 

Since it was fan appreciation night, they got to go down and play on the ice.  They had so much fun!

Happy 10th Birthday Austin!  We love you!!

Spring Break fun at our favorite spots

For Spring Break this year, we took the kids camping in Wimberley.  It's our favorite area to explore. 

We checked out the Guadalupe River.

We can't be anywhere near Gruene without stopping by Gruene Hall and the Gristmill!

We took the kids on a tour around Texas State.  This is my first dorm Sterry Hall where I lived in 1994. 

I had a ton of Mass Communications classes in Old Main.

Eric and I would meet between classes sometimes for lunch.  It was so fun to show the kids around!

Go bobcats!

After touring campus, we headed back to Wimberley to explore some more.

We had a wonderful Spring Break!

Backyard camping

Friday Ethan and Austin stayed home to recover from a stomach bug that hit Lauren and them earlier in the week. My body was fighting it, so I was exhausted all day. We made the best of it and had a fun day laying around. The weather was amazing! 

Eric had to cut down some branches for the new fence to go up, so the kids had fun making a fort out of them. 

The cats love walking on the top of the fence. 

Since the weather was so perfect, we decided to set up the tent and have a campout! 

Eric and I bought this tent 17 years ago for our 6 month dating anniversary. Wow! That makes me feel very old!!

We had an outdoor pizza party. Crazy the weather was that perfect in February! 

I love creating memories with the kids!

Christmas 2015

We woke up Christmas morning and were excited to see Santa came!

Kids patiently waited for 6 adults and 4 teens to wake up before they went in living room.

Love these kids! 

Every year Santa leaves a special note in someone's stocking with clues to find their last presents. 

The last clue lead them to the garage where they found new bikes and a scooter!

Blair's first Christmas!

Lauren's first selfie on her new iPod. 

We had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending it at home with our family.

Christmas Eve 2015

Christmas Eve we went to our church.  There were Minions, 40,000 lbs of snow, awesome music and a great service.

Kids were excited to play in the snow.

The best part of Christmas Eve was Lauren got baptized!  She asked Jesus into her heart and was so excited to be baptized! 

After church, we headed back to our house to open some presents.

The PJ game
