I feel like this has been a particularly cold and dreary December for Houston. It is usually chilly on and off this time of year, but it is almost always sunny and I have really missed the cheeriness the sun brings. The weekend of the 21st, my entire family was all together again and we had so much fun hanging out. It was really one of the best visits I remember in a long time. In between some of the family fun (that I will get around to blogging very soon), Preston and Addie went in the backyard to play. The sun was out finally and I ran outside to capture the pretty afternoon light while the kids entertained themselves with the leaves. These are the kinds of pictures I want to be better at taking in 2014...the things that make me smile when we are at home just doing our thing.
