Merry Christmas in Texas

We had a very Merry Christmas in Texas!
We went to an eve of Christmas Eve service at Kristin, Craig, and William's church. Jason Castro from American Idol was part of the praise team which was super fun! He was one of my favorites from this past season. On Christmas Eve, we went to Mum and Papa's church and came home for Christmas dinner. All of my pictures are pajama you can tell, we had a very casual Christmas!! Our camera battery was acting up so I am sad that we didn't snap more pictures....check Kristin's blog for more family fun!

Baby Blue Eyes

Here's a picture of the girlies tonight. Jane was born with very blue eyes and we're hoping they'll stay that way! Her hair is all kinds of crazy fun too! Ava is doing a great job at being the Big Sis...we are constantly practicing how to be gentle...I think she's getting the hang of it. Sweet little Jane is very loved by her big sister and Mommy & Daddy, of course!

Happy December 1st & Due Date

Happy December 1st! We had a light snow all day yesterday and through the night. This is the only evidence I have as it has mostly melted away!
Today we start the big countdown to Christmas! My Aunt Linda made our advent calendar that Ava and Jane will add an ornament to each day. It took Ava forever to decide which should go on first...we decided on the teapot for today!
Ava also started her very first chocolate advent calendar today. Thanks Aunt Sissy for sending us a December 1st surprise. Today her treat was a chocolate train. Be sure to check William's blog for their "Favorite things about Christmas" countdown each day in December!
Last but never ever least...Today is baby Jane's true due date. We are SO thankful she is here and healthy! Happy due date sweet baby girl! You are so so so very loved!!
