As I mentioned in the last post, I came down with some sort of lovely stomach bug on Christmas night and was feeling like a complete mess the next morning, but we had places to go and people to see...namely all my family in Austin.
So, we loaded up the car to head down 35. However, when we were literally minutes from my Mom's house, some jerk ran a red light, slammed into my car, and then proceeded to leave the scene. Uggggggh. Luckily everyone was fine, but needless to say it was not a good day.
All was better the next day when we celebrated at Grampsie and Nana's house. We chowed down on Mexican food, opened all sorts of fun presents, and spent lots of quality time with the fam.
The next day, we celebrated at Bunny and Nello's house and soaked up the last moments of the Christmas season.
Mimi joined us for a bit, and this series of photos is everything...
We had such a wonderful weekend, and all the Christmas fun finally caught up with Little Miss No Naps :).
Josh had to fly back to Dallas on Sunday night, but since the kids' school was closed the following week, I worked from my firm's Austin office for a couple days so they could hang out with my family.
This also gave me the chance to see some of my favorite friends. I spent one night visiting Lauren and Jacob at their beautiful new house and another at a fabulous dinner with Lolly. We tried a relatively new place called Parkside, which was amazing!
After all that fun, it was time to head back to Dallas to celebrate New Year's Eve by sipping champagne on the couch in our pajamas. My how times have changed…but I wouldn't have it any other way :).
