Saying Goodbye to 2015

We had a lot of fun during the rest of our time in San Antonio! Lots of good food, relaxing, game playing and hanging out. We all went to Top Golf our last morning and we always have a blast there!
We were back just in time to celebrate New Year's Eve and my mom's birthday and end 2015 with a bang!
Oh, and all three of the kids stayed up until midnight this year!!! 12-27-15-3

One of the days in San Antone, Preston helped Papa set up his train and the boys had fun with it...mostly they were so excited they would mess the track up and the train would stop, but it was fun still ;-). He put his phone in one of the cars while it was recording and the perspective was super cool!

CHRISTMAS!!!

I need to get caught up on my posting!!!
Christmas morning was so fun. The kids are getting older and I didn't take a video of them walking into the room, but then a couple days later I came across one from 2 years ago and I immediately regretted that I didn't do it this year :(...next year for sure!
We kept it simple this year since we went on the cruise and have another big family trip to Ecuador planned this summer and it was so nice. The kids really wanted the things they got and were just as excited as they have been every other year.
We had our traditional Christmas brunch, and then went to the movies in two shifts to help cover all the baby-watching duties :-). Ella and I watched Ollie and Lulu during the first round and then Mike and I went with Mack and Chery later that night to see Joy (the same movie the rest of the gang saw that afternoon).
The next morning we headed to San Antonio (after Ella finished swim practice, poor kid!) and celebrated with the Freemans. There was a yummy BBQ dinner, more presents and some fun games played.
It is always so fun to have the chance to be with the entire family on both sides at this time of year!

Christmas Eve Party Time

Christmas Eve morning we started out with our big family photo shoot and then all headed for some brunch at Black Walnut. It had been a busy few days so having some down time at home after that was really nice. We played a family game of Monopoly and no one cried so it was a success haha! Before we knew it we were off to my parent's house for our yummy Christmas Eve dinner and gift exchange. All the pictures that night are from Cheryl, who always captures the evening so well. Then it was back home to carry out our family traditions before getting everyone in bed to wait for Santa's arrival!
