Abbi's 12th Birthday!

 Abigail turned 12 last weekend. This blows my mind because I remember being at her 7th birthday party! Crazy!
We at lunch at Fuddruckers, which has become the traditional place for her birthday lunch! Then she and some friends went skating and to a movie.
 Belton loves Aunt Abbi!
 We all do!!!
 Papaw, Grandma and Belton

Christmas Afternoon

 After a delicious meal and some wonderful family time, it was FINALLY time for PRESENTS!!!
G-Dad and G-Mom
 Grandma and Belton
 Abuela and Belton
 Belton walking with the puzzles he got from Grandma and Papaw to get some help with them. (This totally reminded me of Claire!)
 Belton and Papaw looking at one of Belton's gifts to him.
 G-Mom and G-Dad took Abbi on an amazing road trip this summer. I got the pictures from the trip and made books for both Abbi and G-Mom and G-Dad. They were well received. :-) (I guess now I need to get going on my 2012 and 2013 books! I hate being behind!!)

Papaw, Matt and Grandma

Merry Christmas! We are very blessed!

Christmas Morning

 Merry Christmas! We are up and ready to see what Santa brought! 
Belton was certainly happy to see so many new toys sitting out for him!
 He loves pull toys. How fun that Santa brought him one!

 This tractor is definitely a favorite these days. So much fun to ride!
 He brought his new books to each of us for some reading time.
 Sweet baby!

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve, we went to Grandma and Papaw's house and Matt read Twas the Night Before Christmas to Belton
And Belton tried on Santa's hat.
Then we headed over to the Tovar Christmas Eve at DJ's house.
 Here are Grandma and Papaw (or Abuela and Abuelo) with their three great grandchildren, Belton, Blake and Riley!
 Belton LOVED exploring a new place and dragging this bag behind him for a bit.
 Santa came to visit and pass out toys to all of the little ones!
We got some of the kids dressed up in the Christmas pajamas before we left.

 Then we went to Grandma and Papaw's house to spend the night. Belton put some cookies and milk out for Santa...
 ...but not before snagging some of that icing for himself!
Then he was off to bed so that Santa could come visit!!

O Christmas Tree

 We have really enjoyed our Christmas tree this year!
 And Belton has been a VERY GOOD boy and has only touched it a couple of times.

 This little boy loves going outside. 
Whether it's to ride in the red wagon that Matt grew up riding in at his Grandma's house...
...or "mowing" the lawn at the Weldy's house. 
He just loves exploring the outdoors!

Chrystal's Birthday Dinner!

After several attempts at getting together, with me having a new nephew born, Chrystal and Erik being under the weather, and who knows what else at this point- we finally went to dinner for Chrystal's birthday last weekend! The Cheesecake Factory was a delicious choice! Happy (laaate) Birthday, best friend!

Christmas Light Fun!

 This year we enjoyed a few different awesome Christmas light displays.
 A couple of them were in Coppell.
 This one is my favorite, the Texas flag!
 Fun candy canes on a neighbor's apartment patio.
 This was at a park in Irving that we went on a walk through. I love the train!

And then we went to this amazing house in Farmers Branch. They have several houses that are all coordinated and have a music and lights show. Sometimes Santa comes to visit and is in this sleigh that we got some family pictures in!
 They also have a train that Belton will probably be able to ride on next year. It is so awesome!
I love finding fun, free things to do during the holidays!
