2nd Snow!!!

It snowed AGAIN today! When Parker got home from work I got Kate all bundled up to go outside and play. She liked it much better this time.




the tumble...but she was still smiling when she got up!
Daddy and Kate

Dad made Kate a snowball...

Ready to go inside...

Bailey LOVES the snow. She runs in circles trying to eat it. Parker started throwing her snowballs and she would catch them in the air. The snowball is in the air in this picture but it is hard to see...

Shreveport Christmas

We left Houston on Christmas morning and headed to Shreveport. We spent the 25th - 28th with my side of the family.

We opened presents when we got there but I didn't get any pictures. It is a little chaotic with a little one.

My mom and I made a Happy Birthday Jesus cake...


Emma's 1st Christmas!!!

Karen and sweet Emma...she is 5 weeks old.

my neice...

Kate, JuJu, Emma and Karen...

On Saturday we went out to my grandmother's house. I forgot to take Kate's portable high chair, but we found this one in the closet. We figured out it was over 45 years old...but it still worked!


Micah and Emma...

Amber and Kate...

4 generations...Kate was a little unsure of my grandmother. Notice she is looking a little suspect in the picture.

We also found this toy in the closet. It was a Weeble Wobbler Dog by Fisher Price. I think it was over 40 years old too...

Mamma Flowers and Emma...

On Sunday morning we all went to church. Kate was checking out Emma before we left...
Kate did really well with Emma. She would just point and say "Ba-bee"

Kate ready for church...

We had a great time in Shreveport!!!

Houston Christmas

We spent December 22-Christmas morning in Houston with Parker's family. Here are some pics from our time in Houston...

Nativity

Every year my mom buys us a nativity of some kind...so this year, because we have a little one roaming around, she got us the Fisher Price nativity. Kate loves it, especially the animals.


But I love it because it has been a great, easy way to talk to Kate about baby Jesus. So now when I ask her where baby Jesus is, she goes to the navity and points to the baby. It is so sweet.

Santa Pics

Last year's Santa pic...
This year's Santa pic...
Not much has changed...Kate still HATES Santa.

This is the one we bought...
Santa pic with cousins Emma and Kate (Emma was sleeping, Kate was screaming)...
Finally, the photographer (with the help of Elmo) got a little smile out of Kate and then Emma started crying.
Outside Santa's cottage...Karen and Emma (2 weeks old), Kate (14 months old) and Janet
