Christmas and New Year's

I really fell behind on the blogging (by 5 months – YIKES)!!!  Many of you have let me know that I need to update, so here you go!
A few days before Christmas we took the kids to the Winter Wonderland at the Gaylord Hotel.  We went through the ICE exhibit, snow tubed, made family gingerbread house, and ate a yummy dinner.  The kids loved each activity and did not want to leave.

We had a wonderful Christmas!  On Christmas Eve, we went to my sister Jamie’s house and ate our traditional tamale dinner.  On Christmas morning, Santa definitely found our house and the twins’ got plenty of things to keep them busy for quite awhile.  We ate a delicious breakfast and then went to Luby’s later that afternoon for an early dinner and then my mom’s to play games.  It was great getting to spend time with the whole family. 
After Christmas my mom and I took the twins to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to see the Curious George exhibit.  We got a membership for the year so that we can take them frequently.  They had a blast exploring all of the exhibits and we finished off the fun with dinner at the Mexican Inn.

On New Year’s Eve, we went to my sister Jamie’s house for dinner and to watch the ball drop.  The kids were excited to be apart of the countdown and we welcomed in the New Year together.  Tim and I reflected on the goals that we had made for 2013 and checked off the things we accomplished and added the things we are still working on, to the list of goals for 2014.  This has become an annual tradition that allows us to set goals as individuals, as a couple, and as a family.
