Our Life Lately

There is so much to catch up on since the end of November was such a whirlwind! Here are a few highlights…

Caleb and I flew out to Texas earlier than Nick for one of my best friend’s weddings. And a blizzard decided to come. So we had to hurry and fly out the night before planned. (Like I wasn’t already a nervous wreck flying with him alone for the first time!) But he was a champ even with a two hour delay. #rockstarstatus 

Here he is flirting with everyone in the airport! 

It was all worth it to see Hannah and Matt get married though! It seriously was such an honor to be apart of such a special and beautiful day. Everything about their ceremony reflected Jesus and their reception was such a great portrayal of their personalities. Such a fun day!!
Isn’t she such a stunning bride?!?!  
Seriously so cute. And so candid. 

It’s always a great day when I get to spend time with some of my best girls from college (and my bestie from grad school that has joined right in!). They make my life. 

And not to be outdone, Caleb was having himself a great time with Aunt LeyLey and Maddie Moo. He even crashed her school’s thanksgiving feast!     

On that Monday, we made the trek to Waco to see the brand new Silos that opened while I was in Colorado (or else I totally would have been at that grand opening!). I’m pretty much obsessed with Chip and Joanna from Fixer Upper and consider myself on first name basis with them. The trip did not disappoint! And one of my besties from FW made the trip to meet us. I have the best friends EVER. 

They even put in food trucks and one of them was my most favorite coffee shop in all the land. And all the people said AMEN! 
Then look who finally showed up to Texas!! After a week without this guy, we were VERY EXCITED.   (And there’s your little sneak peek to our family pics we took for Christmas cards. This one of the two of them makes my heart melt.)

Thanksgiving was next and such a blast getting to spend the day with so much family! 
Can you even handle the cuteness of these two turkeys?! 

He had so much fun with his grandparents!   

We flew out the day after Thanksgiving but were greeted by JoJo and…. Aunt JJ!!! She was back from the World Race of 11 months of being gone so it was so super fun to have her back! Crazy to think little man was only 2 months old when he last saw her… Quite the difference! (Thank you TimeHop.) 

It was seriously such a blast to be in Texas for so long and get to see so many of my people (although I wish there was time to see EVERYONE). But fun to come back to our new home with SNOW. Hello Christmastime!!!! I mean, when is the last time we went to pick out a Christmas tree and there was real snow on the ground? (For me… Ummm, NEVER.)


It pretty much makes you want to snuggle on the couch and watch Christmas movies and drink hot cocoa while staring at the tree ALL MONTH LONG. Here’s to life getting a whole lot more Christmassy!

I love Jesus. My husband and my sons are the best ever. I'm a Texas girl living in a Colorado world. Coffee makes everything better.
