Family Getaway

The thought of going on a major family vacation somehow wasn't appealing this year with a 5 month old and a 2 year old, so we opted for a short little getaway instead. We went to Pine Cove's family camp down in Columbus.
First I will tell you what we did NOT do....We did NOT do any laundry, dishes, bills, cleaning, cooking, yard work or errands. Instead we....snuggled


watched a sunset

"helped" daddy gather firewood

roasted hot dogs and s'mores

through dirt and sticks in the fire with sweet buddy Aaden

got dirty

really dirty

wore boots every day...even with pajamas

paddle boated with daddy

and snuggled some more.

How great to be able to step back from the business of life and focus on what really matters. family.

The Boys

our latest family pic my mom took...I love it! Brex- 2, Jet 4 1/2 months. How time flies!!

playing in the pond at Memaw's with Gram and cousin Vaughn

all snuggled up before going to play in the snow....for about 5 minutes. maybe 10!
he was very unsure at first...
he is definitely aTexan...never LOVED it.

I was running out of activities with all the snow and Brex and Levi played in our bath for almost an hour!!

Here is our little JJ...can't believe how big he is getting!

Brex had a little breakfast date with his friend Sadie :)
Janie got the boys their first matching shirts for Valentines!!

Christmas 2010

This was probably our last Christmas where Brex didn't really know what in the world was going on...he got one thing from us and was great with that!

our family Christmas morning before heading off to see both families!!

this is how much of his car was assembled before he got up:) oops! "quick and easy assembly" was a little misleading! Good thing he didn't have a clue!

the finished product...

this is a terrible picture...but we celebrated with my family in Dallas this year and had dinner and saw lights at Highland Park Village one night!

yeah for Elmo...

Brex playing with cousin Vaughn

now onto san antonio....

and a tricycle...

cousins daisy and lily with their necklaces from us

Jet sporting his new pine cove shirt...

a quick little stop in austin to meet my best friend's new baby~ welcome michael getto!!

the ride home...

We are grateful for a WONDERFUL Christmas! So much to be thankful for in 2010...God is good and we pray that our family could be a reflection of Him!

Life with two....

So, getting used to having two kiddos was a little more challenging than we thought it would be....but the Lord has been so good to give us many sweet moments in the midst of the craziness! Here are a few pics of what our life has been like lately...
Brex LOVES all the new baby things we have out for Jet...the bouncer, nap nanny, paci's...the other day I found him "scaling" Jet's crib and caught him just before he landed on top of Jet during a nap:)look closely at Jet's face...the result of someone tackling him and wanting to wrestle....I wonder who that was? Brex really is the best big brother, he is just ready for a playmate!

cozy winter days

all smiles now! so fun!
