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.
The reason I’m laughing here is a funny story.. .I laughed so hard I cried and took me a while to regain control!
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. :(
Cash checking out Ron’s new house!
Cash playing with his good buddy Braylin
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 is such a big girl… here she is getting ready to go to a sleepover!
We had a blast celebrating Brandon’s birthday. We have kind of made a it a tradition to go bowling for his b-day. The kids love it!
Nana and Cash at the bowling alley…
Daddy and his matching boys

Here are some random iPhone pics from December…
Emma and Claire at choir- they were both wearing ivory vests!
Corbin and Foster- good buddies from school. We picked up Corbin one day after school and these boys were SO silly in the car!
This was a day or so before Cash’s birthday- Fallon and Craig sent him this cool flashlight for his birthday and he would not put it down!
This picture was taken on a snowy day a few days after Christmas. All 3 kids were working very hard on something in our craft room. :)
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.
I LOVE Christmas Morning. There is nothing like being with your family and seeing the joy in your kids’ faces when they wake up!
Here is the scene of Christmas morning BEFORE the kids woke up. :)
Here are the big kids waking up Cash… yes, he has quite a few things in his crib!
Next up… Nana’s house!

After opening gifts it was time for Nana and Judy’s delicious Christmas lunch…Cash loved it!
On Christmas Eve we drove home from Texas around mid-day and quickly got ready to have dinner and write letters to Santa. Emma used her brand new art set from Craig and Fallon to write her letter to Santa…
Cash pretended to write a letter also…

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!
We attempted to take pics of Great-GrandMom with all of the Great-Grandkids from our family… Shepherd wasn’t a fan of the photo shoot!!!
We gave Zane this Captain America costume for Christmas… he loved it!!
Cash and Shep… they are just 2 weeks apart!
What a cool Pops… he played video games with the kiddos for quite a while.
We had Emma’s birthday party a week before her Birthday but we still celebrated on her actual b-day with a few gifts.
Here are she and Foster opening her gifts.
A gift card for a pedicure with Mommy.
“Rosie Revere. Engineer” book- this is an awesome book for little girls!
It’s so hard to believe our oldest baby is 8 years old!!
