It's been awhile...

I soaked up every second of my vacation and didn't blog, use my phone, or study for the entire 2 weeks!

I have a lot of catching up to do, and I fear I may never be able to get it all out on this blog in a timely manner, so I made a list for myself to help me remember what still needs to be documented....

-spent time with ALL 6 siblings, and 13 nieces and nephews
-didn't get as much sleep as I had hoped, but I WAS able to sleep in a few times!
-surprise visit from Santa on Christmas Eve
-WHITE CHRISTMAS IN TEXAS!!!
-Olivia didn't appreciate being dragged around town and let us know around 1, 2, and 3 in the morning.
-my little brother came home from his mission!
-Livy met all of her cousins!!! YAY!
-but she missed the cousins picture because she couldn't handle the wind :( Boo. I'm still soooo sad that she wasn't in there with all the cousins.
-came to the realization that Liv is not an easy baby, but we LOVE her to pieces anyway.
-San Antonio and the Wild Oak Ranch
-Alamo, Riverwalk, and the tale of the Fiesta Texas debacle
-sending 2009 out with a pinata

yeah yeah and yahoooooooo!!! These pictures are so darn cute. I love that little cutie.
Liv is a normal baby. Avery was just an easy going nicu baby so hard to compare :)
Hope you guys don't go crazy these next few months. Call me and let's look at the calendar to see how I can help.
Glad you had so much fun with your fabulous family.
Love you 3!!!

Halle struggled as well, teething and lots of holiday runaround does not mix! Liv is absolutely adorable!

you are not alone with the easy baby thing! landon was/is NOT easy! but i hear a lot of firstborns are that way, because they don't have to compete for your attention! i remember feeling the same way around my siblings' children especially b/c landon wouldn't let everybody hold him. anyway yes she is STILL adorable and you love her to pieces :) she is such a cutie. glad you got to soak up your break!!

Tare I hear you with being a bad blogger. I am making myself blog this Sunday because I need to document all my Christmas fun. I loved seeing the pics of Liv (sounds like that is what everyone is calling her).She is so cute, and I am sure you are an amazing mother! Glad to hear you enjoyed your break, good luck with school.

It was so great having everyone home! There were so many good times and the memories are forever! I love looking at pictures and remembering all the fun (and even the things that didn't work out)! It was so special to spend a little more time with you guys! I love holding Olivia and reminding her how much her grammy loves her! She is such a doll with her beautiful smile! And it was so special to pick up Jeff and have him with us again!
