Christmas Break 2014 Pt 3

It seems like a fairy tale now, but right after Christmas 2014, we had the prodigious privilege of having most of Laurel's family come visit San Antonio. We all stayed  in some condos in Gruene, a small town just outside of New Braunfels, and we had a wonderful time together.

The first night we went to Cantina del Rio for dinner. With Corky's new bride, Whitney, we were all influenced to take plenty of pictures.
I love my family!!

Making faces seems to be my kids' specialty.

Lots of group gatherings. And the little ones lock each other "in jail."

Playing catch on what was the sunniest day of our time together.

Christmas Break 2014 Pt 2

Christmas Day
There are certain traditions we have as a family. We do lots of Night-Before-Christmas Traditions, but I don't have any pictures of that. But everybody loves to have Christmas Crepes for breakfast!
Strawberry Crepes with Lime filling
My favorite thing about this day is everyone's happy surprises, especially from each others' gifts. But all happy surprises are great memories to record.
"Thank you, _____ (Mom! Isaac! Noah! Gerry! Jared!)"
 And we have to show off something we got to wear in front of the Christmas tree. Is for fun.
Overwhelmed, Ellie could only fake a smile by this point.
New shirts!

Isaac's many faces. Love this kid!
Noah is plotting something; I just know it!
