Cousin Play Date

Ok-once again-I’m really behind, but you should all be used to that by now, right? Over Christmas break my cousin and I were texting back and forth and one thing led to another and by golly-my awesome cousins and Aunt were taking a road trip to Houston for a cousin play date. It was super fun for a lot of reasons. I can not express to you all how much fun that day was. Getting to play and love on each others babies-and just catch up with each other was awesome. It doesn’t happen very often that we don’t see  each other for at least one of the major holidays but it happened this year so we were beyond overdue on hanging out. Anyways-Here are some  pics from the day!

Ann Voskamp over at A Holy Experience has done it again…. I know it’s the end of January and all the “New Year Resolutions” hoopla has simmered…and to be honest I have never been a “New Year Resolutions” kind of girl, not sure what that says about me?! Anyways-This year as I was actually contemplating what a resolution could be for me all I kept coming back to was this thought, “I can’t add something new to add on to my list of “to-do’s” or “try to be better at such and such”- I have too many of those as it is!” Then I would get discouraged about all the things I’m not “doing well” (lies from Satan). And the more I would go back to those thoughts, a small voice kept whispering the word balance. Balance. But how do I get balance? When I read this post though I felt like maybe, just maybe, if I worked up to doing these 25 things-which might take 25 years haha-I just might get some more balance in my day. I think I will start 1-3 of these things.

She arrived on New Years Eve-what a way to start out the new year, huh? She is so tiny, cute and cuddly-we just love her! Here a few of the “first shots” I got with our camera-ImageImageImageImageImageImage
