Christmas and Anniversary

I am nothing if not a girl of my word, so here are enough pictures to make your eyeballs bleed. Ha!
Christmas Eve at the O'Bryant's
Sadly, someone forgot to charge the camera so we didn't get a lot of pictures from this night.

the kids making candy houses
(ignore my weird face)
Brody with the kids and Emery

Christmas morning!!

A while back our Flip video broke, so we have been using the digital camera to also take video. So...I don't have as many snap shots of opening presents as I do videos.

Clark's typical smile these days
Scarlett got a "suzy" pet as she calls it :)

Christmas at Mimi and Papa's

Scarlett's new easel
Jordan and Maegan in their longhorn jammies
It would not be Christmas without Jaime showing off a new accessory
...or Ben making a crazy face-haha!
We didn't plan it, but we are proud of our team (and hoping not to get shut out against Alabama!!)
playing with all the toys once home again
A few days later with Maw-Maw

Our 8th Anniversary was Dec. 29 so we waited until New Year's Eve and went back to Brody's aunt and uncle's place in Fredericksburg. It was the first time we have left both kids overnight and we only stayed gone a night but it was so much fun. I know we all had fun because when we got home Friday Scarlett greeted me with a frown saying she thought Mimi and Papa were staying a LONG time and that was short. I'm pretty sure it felt long for my sweet parents :)

before going to dinner
We ate at The Nest and Brody's aunt told us it is rated one of the top 10 restaurants in America. (I don't know what magazine she was reading, but the food was delicious!)
I did actually take pictures of the food, but I used Brody's phone and forgot to download them...and now I've put enough pictures on this post so you will have to just imagine. We had french onion soup, Brody had quail and I had a yummy chicken/portabella mushroom dish.

We aren't big New Year's party people, so after dinner we just took a little drive down Main St. to look at the lights. It was so pretty and this picture does NOT do it justice.
Anyway-it has been a fun Christmas break! Happy New Year!!

Catching up a bit here...You know me--a day late and a dollar short. It looks like your December was divine. Glad you had so many fun moments together.
