I'm still playing catch-up with my blog posts. Here are some pictures from our New Year's Eve celebration. We had a blast at the Russell's house. Thanks Clint and Jenny for hosting this fun event!
I was glad to have Rex on my team for this serious game of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit.
Even the big kids rocked the house playing Rock Band.
Daddy and Mara share a "happy new year" kiss.

I planned a little "get away" the week before Thanksgiving. We dropped the kids off at Grana & Papa's house in Burnet, and then went on to College Station for a few days. We had a wonderful time at our B&B, and reminiscing about our great times in Aggieland.
This is the beautiful "France" cottage at the 7F Lodge in Wellborn, TX. We loved staying here, and hope to return someday.
This lovely little chapel is also on the 7F Lodge property.
Grandma and Grandpa came over to our house for Thanksgiving dinner. It was unusual for us to have such a small crowd at Thanksgiving...although there were six of us...not sure why Rex and Mara aren't in this picture. The feast was great, and of course we had tons of left-overs.

I must admit that I have totally dropped the ball when it comes to updating my blog. I am ashamed that I have allowed so much time to pass since I last made an entry. Of course, things got busy with Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday activities, but that is really no excuse. Then, I simply got out of the habit of checking my blog, and before I knew it four months had passed.

I have decided that the time has come for me to make a fresh start, and double my efforts to update our blog at least once a week. I am going to begin by playing catch-up. I want to share some highlights of events in the past four months during my absence from Blogger. Stay tuned for my "Playing Catch-Up" entries...I hope to get them posted soon.

Thanks for taking the time to connect with our family in this way.
