Merry Christmas

We had a busy week full of lots of Christmas celebrations. We spent Christmas Eve with the Nalley's in Magnolia. On the way to Magnolia Abigail read the Christmas story to herself. She loves reading about Baby Jesus. (When I say read, I mean she sings parts of Silent Night and talks about Baby Jesus as she looks at the pictures.)

We had a quiet morning at our house to celebrate Christmas. Adam read the Christmas story and then we had a yummy breakfast.

Abigail really likes her new tunnel she got from her Grandma. I am not sure how long the tent and tunnel are suppose to stay up in the living room. It doesn't really match the rest of the furniture, but Abigial loves it!

Abigail loved her stocking gifts. All she really needed was a granola bar, toothbrush, necklace, and bracelets.

After we opened presents at our house we headed over to my parents for more presents and more food.

My brother Bobby came over first. Troy came over later and David was on his way to Mexico to see his wife's family.

My dad was very excited about his new hedge trimmer, so he wanted it in the picture.

Uncle Bobby with three of his four nieces. They all love Uncle Bobby!

I can't believe Abigail and Atticus are both looking at the camera at the same time!

At 2:00 in the morning on December 26th we headed to Louisiana for more Nalley family Christmas. The plan was for Abigail to sleep the whole way there, but instead she just requested multiple snacks and never really slept. We were all very tired during our trip, but it was good to see family. Luckily we were able to sneak in a few naps.

Thanks Mawmaw for the ice cream!

Eventually Abigail will warm up to Alex, but it has not happened yet.

We hope all of you enjoyed your Christmas with your loved ones! The gift of Jesus is a wonderful reason to celebrate His love with our families.

Christmas Time!

Abigail is really enjoying all the parts of Christmas this year. She loves the songs, Christmas lights, and Baby Jesus.

Abigail's favorite Christmas song is Silent Night. She is pretty good at the Holy Night, All is calm part. She started singing along with the music last night at dinner.

My Computer is Fixed!!!

My computer has had some problems, but after many long hours of my dad working on it everything is much better. For some reason I could not log into my blog or use google for the past couple of months. My dad came over several times and eventually found the problem.

Here are a few recent pictures of things going on around our house.

We had SNOW last week!! I thought it was lots of fun, but I am not sure how much Abigail liked playing in the snow. She was cold and getting wet, but we did get a few pictures of her. My brother gave Abigail a snow suit, so we thought it was a great chance for her to wear it. I am not sure if she will ever see snow again while she is this little.

I think Abigail was too busy looking at the snow falling on my head to look at the camera. It was fun to watch the snow cover our yard for the afternoon. I think it was the most snow I have ever seen fall in Houston.

We took Abigail to see Santa and Mrs. Claus, but she only wanted Mimi to hold her. She eventually warmed up to them and handed them a candy cane, but she didn't want to get super close. She loves to point out all the Santa statues she sees, but the real Santa made her a little nervous.

Abigail loves her babies and insisted on holding her babies while we took her picture.

This is my 10 hour project I did with my mother-in-law. My sweet mother-in-law did most of the work. Maybe next time I will have the courage to do more of the actual sewing.
