WOW! Christmas was so fun this year!! We stayed VERY busy with 5 seperate Christmas'! Like always, Landon got very spoiled by our entire family. He got so many nice things. It was so nice to spend time with our family. We are so blessed!
We started off the Christmas celebrations baking cookies. Landon LOVED rolling out the dough, pressing down the cookie cutters, and icing the Christmas cookies. Santa enjoyed eating them!
Our first family Christmas was at my mom's house in Granbury on the 23rd. Landon got lots of stuff from mom, including his first pair of skates and a toddler scooter!
On Christmas Eve, we went to Chris' mom's house. This was a VERY special Christmas because my brand new neice, Olivia joined the family! She is only 2 weeks old, so she didn't do much but sleep and eat, but it was wonderful to see Jessica and Beau (bro-in-law and sis-n-law) beaming with excitement about their new joy bundle! Landon was spoiled over there, as well. One of his most favorite presents came from Grandma...his very own mini golf-cart!
Landon woke up to lots and lots of presents from Santa on Christmas morning! He must have been a very good boy! Just some of the things Santa brought were a huge train set/table, a mini Thomas the Train couch, and a basketball goal! Landon was ecstatic!
After we played with Santa's toys, we headed over to Chris' dad's house for yet another Christmas. Check out all of the presents under their tree! We ALL get spoiled over there!
Lastly, on Christmas evening we went to my Grandma's house to have Christmas with my dad. By this time, I was over taking pictures, so this one of Chris and Landon playing with the train will have to do. I really wish I would have taken more because Landon got the cutest gift from them. It is a train that he can ride on that has it's own track. It's rather large so I'm not sure where it's gonna go yet, but he sure did love it!
WOW! Christmas sure was fun, but momma's ready to relax now! I'll be updating on the twins very soon....I have a Dr. appt. this week.

I don't know how this picture got stuck at the top of this post, and I can't get it to move. Anyway...this is me and a few of my closest girlfriends at The Lonesome Dove Wetern Bistro. Em's husband threw a surprise b-day party for Em's closest family and friends, and we had such a nice time. The food was amazing and it was so nice visiting with my ladies and their hubbies. I highly reccomend this place if you are looking for fine dining. It's down in The Stockyards.
Can you tell in the picture's below how happy Chris and I are??!! It's because we found out some amazing news that day! I had another growth scan (high-tech sonogram that I get once a month) on Wednesday and found out some great great great great news!!! We are having 2 baby girls!!!!! We couldn't be any happier!! Landon is going to be such a great big brother to 2 little sisters. We are beyond thrilled. We also found out that it is looking like I only have one placenta, which means the odds are that they will be identical. At first, they were thinking I had 2, but not anymore. They are very healthy, thriving babies. They are the perfect size, about 6 inches long each. One weighs 8 oz. and one weighs 9 ozs. All of their body parts are forming perfectly and their organs are functioning just as they should. We are very thankful! As of right now, their names are Emily Grace and Ally Kate. Chris loves Emily, I love Ally, and the middle names are the middle name's of our grandmothers. What a blessing these babies are! The pictures below are just a mix of fun ones I wanted to share...
I know the 3 pictures above are basically the same, but I couldn't decide on one, so I just shared all three! These were taken at The Lonesome Dove for Em's party and it was also the same day we found out about our daughters! My growing belly is 18 weeks along!
Chris spent 6 straight hours in the freezing cold putting lights on the house. They ended up looking great! Good job Daddy!!
We went to the Parade of Lights on the Granbury Square the day after Thanksgiving with my mom. This was Santa on the last float. Landon LOVED the parade. It will definitely be a family tradition for now on.
Landon looking cute at Mimi's Cafe for lunch last weekend.
