Garth!

We had such a fun night with friends at the Garth Brooks concert.  Although Robin and I have every one of Garth’s albums (between the two of us) neither of us had ever been to a concert.  He was just as amazing as everyone said he was.  He is quite a performer.  Here we are with the Smiths and the Zimmermans.

January 2015 iPhone pics

Whew!  January seems to have just flown by!  Once November hits and we celebrate all 3 kids Birthdays, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, I feel like I spend the entire month of January recovering! :)

Here are a few random iPhone pics from the month of January.

Here are me and Cash getting ready to watch the Baylor Cotton Bowl game.  Robin was actually at the game.  We will not discuss the outcome of the game. :(

I know this picture is blurry but you can get an idea… Cash frequently invades my makeup drawer.  On this particular day I caught him putting mascara on!

This guy is such a mess… he went through about a one week phase of unzipping his pi’s about halfway down his chest- hilarious!

Emma and Nana both got gift certificates for pedicures for Christmas.  We went to get pedis all together.  Foster went along for the ride and sat on my lap.  He loved watching everyone and thought the massage chairs were SO cool.

This year we did things a little bit differently regarding our Christmas plans.  Typically we go to Texas after Christmas day.  This year, however, we went a few days before Christmas and stayed until Christmas Eve.  We had a great time with Robin’s side of the family!

We were so thankful that Great-Grandmom got to come… she and Cash have such a special connection!
