Holiday Wrap Up

I was so happy to be out of the car and in my own bed after a 15 hour journey back to Texas, but I was already missing my family that night. BUT the good news is that leaving home was made easier due to the fact that

1) Jeff and I are having a baby this summer and I know I can count on lot's and lot's of house guests and
2) My brother got engaged, to my best friend, and the wedding will be this summer, in Texas!!!

so 2011 is already promising to be a very busy year for my family and I couldn't be happier :)

If you read my first Holiday post I'm sure you are wondering who won the bet.  I won't keep you in suspense any longer, the winner was...........ME!  Of course, I ran through Wal-Mart a lot with blinders on, and I also did not count people that I recognized their face, but could not remember their name.  This is where a bad memory has it's advantages! My sister impressively blew me out of the water when she saw 12 people she knew in one visit. 

I was very excited to have my first white Christmas in so many years.  It snowed Christmas Eve night and we woke up to beautiful snow on Christmas morning.  It didn't stay beautiful for long though, Lily loved the snow and we had so much fun playing with her. There is nothing cuter than a black lab with snow on her nose.  Although it was pretty much near impossible to get a picture of her like that, you'll just have to take my word for it.

Jeff cleaning the snow off the car, something we don't have to do in Texas!  And our poor little 4Runner did not like the cold in Indiana.

I got what I so wanted, a family picture in the snow.  And since I was too lazy to get Christmas cards sent out this year I posted this picture on Facebook and called it a "Merry Christmas"

My sister and her husband.  How cute are they?

We got to see lots of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Step-Family.  Lily got to meet her cousin Colt.  Although I think some of the things that they did really makes them married in some states.

I couldn't be any luckier.  I love my family and I'm so happy it's growing by TWO this summer.  2011 is bringing lots of blessings to our family already I can't wait to see what else is in store.

Siblings and puppies...I love how the puppies are looking at each other :)

Add the most important person...MOM!
