Nicole's Blog. Anyway, of course I forgot to take pictures. I am really bad about that. I did remember to charge the camera for Christmas Eve and day woohoo! We had our first Christmas Eve in our house. It was so much fun. Then Faith woke up to her Barbie car. She was actually a little surprised. She said, "I can't believe he moved me back to the 'Nice' list!". We really had an awesome Christmas.

The past week has been so fun. Faith had her Medal Ceremony at gymnastics and got her GOLD medal. She is really doing so great there. I'm very proud of her! We got our family pictures done. Jeni is so awesome, everyone should use her for the pictures. Even if they don't have children. Her santa session was only $25.00 for all of these pictures. There are actually a couple more I haven't even saved yet. And you don't have to wait in the ridiculously long line like at the mall. We will never go to the mall Santa again after this!Jeni Hendricks Photography, everyone go check her out! Now the girls and I are in Austin. We came up for the weekend to see my mom and grandma. We are all enjoying ourselves. I'm sure Zach is enjoying having a quiet house too =). Here are a few pictures from the past week! I have so much to do to get ready for Christmas that I can't stay on here any longer!

We had the very best Thanksgiving ever. I am still so upset my camera was dead though! We started at Zach's parents in Magnolia, then continued to Round Top, and ended in Austin! What a drive! It actually isn't usually very long. Maybe it just seemed that way because we had two small children with us. We had such an amazing time with everybody though. Last Sunday I met one of my good friends Magen and her twins Mila and Madelyn at Discovery Green Park. I absolutely love Discovery Green. It is one of the BEST parks ever. I got some really cute pictures of the girls too! They were all dressed in stripes (Lily's and theirs were unplanned) and played pretty well together. Faith was with Nana and Granny that weekend so it was all babies. Mila and Maddy are eighteen months old so they are all pretty close in age. Aren't they just the most adorable little girls?
I also have to put this picture up from us leaving the house today. Faith looks so grown up here it makes me want to cry!
Well tonight we got our Christmas tree up and decorated. We used all plastic ornaments this year. We figured we would have a disaster every day with Lily as curious and into everything as she is right now. Although I really loved all of the pretty glass ornaments we have been given and collected, I'm sure I will love not having to sweep up broken glass every day more. We had fun decorating. I realized tonight it is almost impossible to get a picture of Lily looking at me and smiling unless she is strapped into a car seat or shopping cart. She won't sit still! She fell asleep half way through the decorating though and Faith finished up. I think Faith would have kept adding ornaments all night if we hadn't reached bed time.
We had great family evening. Tortilla soup for dinner was great with this cold weather. Now everyone is in bed, and I feel pretty caught up with projects and blogging so am off to bed myself!
