My parents, brother, niece, and her mom, stepdad, and grandmother all came down to Austin and we went out to see "Wicked" together. My mom and I had never seen it and it was fun. I can't even remember the last musical I have seen, so it brought back a lot of memories and a little nostalgia in that sense. We had a nice weekend with all of them.
Now on to the pictures with my new Rebel! My old Canon Powershot died a few months ago and I really lost interest in photographing things with Jeremy's camera, so I'm hopeful to get back on the wagon.
Mimi always brings money for Noah to put in his piggy bank.
I almost caught some really cute pics of Noah snuggled up with Scott but the kid is faster than me.

This is the day before, on our way to go to the Elephant Brunch. Noah is sporting his super cute owl hat from Aunt Linda. Please ignore the boo-boos on his face throughout these pictures. He had a clumsy week. :)
They paraded out the elephants and presented them with a table full of apples and bananas. Next two pictures are courtesy of Samantha, whom we bumped into at the Brunch.
We attended the 11:00 show, which ran into lunch time. Packed a little lunch and problem solved!

And here is Noah's first picture taking experience. Daddy helped him capture a fabulous shot of Mommy. What you cannot see here is that I am wearing my boots too. :)

First, a cute pic of Noah and his buddies riding their bikes.
One of my gifts was the Twilight series in hardback. He thought this would be cute.
I added a second tree to the house this year. One for Noah's room! Here it is, though not pictured in his room. His favorites this year were a train, two airplanes, and a Thomas the Train ornament.
Christmas morning! Oh no wait...this was December 23. We opened our gifts early, since we were bound for Paris and Fort Smith this year. Trains were definitely the big hit this year, and I feel like we probably acquired about 25 new ones.
On Christmas Eve, we headed to Mamaw and Papaw's house, to be joined by Aunt Mandi, Dominick, and Sophia, whom we hadn't seen since they moved to Illinois last summer. Noah had such fun with everyone, despite coming down with another fever and cold on Christmas Eve. I am sad that we did not take any pictures there other than a couple Jeremy snapped with his phone, over at his grandparents' house. I guess it was just a hectic few days with a sick child, not enough sleep, and a lot going on. We did manage to have a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas night, which I hope to put a lot more planning into next year!
Noah loved playing piano at GG and Dubby's house.
We broke up the 7 hour drive by stopping to spend the night at my parents' house on the way there, then on the way back as well. The second trip, we were able to celebrate with Scott & Madison too.
Noah playing with his new Little People nativity set we got this year. I tried to give him one new piece per day to add to it, as a little advent activity, hopefully he'll be able to understand it better next year.
