Thats A Wrap

Lord, help me keep a Christmas heart-

A heart that holds the season dear

And celebrates, not just one day,

But every moment of the year.

We've been on a little vacation since December 26th. Finally made it home yesterday. My bed was calling me! Things are winding down today as we pack up Christmas 2013 and look ahead to 2014. It was a good year and 2014 looks bright as well! I'll be back to editing this evening and will shoot a wedding in Austin in two weeks. YIKES!!!

Our Christmas day was a quiet one with just our immediate family. We enjoyed the morning and then headed over to a friend's house to celebrate with several couples who were also spending Christmas at home this year. The kids and I packed up that evening and headed to Nana's the next day. It was a restful week of lounging, shopping and hot tubbing... (as usual) in Dallas. We visited the Ross Perot museum which was awesome and rode the train into the city which was fun too. I decided to watch the first episode of Downton Abbey and just like everyone said I would be... I am... HOOKED. I watched a marathon first season. I think I'm on episode 2 of the second season and hoping Lambert will pick up Season 2 & 3 for me this week so I'll be ready for 4... which I think actually starts Sunday!!! (i won't watch ahead as i'm sure it will be a spoiler for me). I'm not a TV watcher at all... but I love love this PBS series. I'm rested and ready for 2014!






A little excited



I'm ready to whip up a batch of Squirrel stew that will do Mrs. Kay proud! On a serious note... the devotional is great! I loved reading their bios

Hours and hours of this...


And I'll continue to do this in 2014~


  1. DO NOT WATCH THE NEW EPISODES UNTIL YOU ARE CAUGHT UP!! Sorry to yell, but it is that important ;-) Besides, I had to make sure you could hear me from SA! Welcome to the Downton world. There is rehab availabe if your addiction gets out of hand! As always, love the pictures. I miss your sweet kiddos (you and Lambert, too)! Happy New Year!

  2. Danielle, I would NEVER! I'm on the episode where William marries the cook's helper (can't remember her name) and then he dies :( so sad... I have a lot to catch up on I'm sure. We miss yall too. We must make a trip out to see your new digs and have some Mexican food on the river!

  3. I LOVED Downton Abbey!!!! Best show ever!!!! I watched it continuously for two weeks I think until I finished it!!!!

  4. Glad you had a good break. We did too. It was absolutely wonderful catching up on sleep and working in pjs during the day. I'm so excited about the new season of Dowtown Abbey starting tonight. We got a new tv for Christmas (shocker, I know!), and I even bought an antenna yesterday. So far I can't seem to get PBS to come through,, but you can bet I will keeep! ;) We need to do coffee soon.

  5. Merry Christmas to your sweet family!
