2015 Family Pictures

I wanted to share our family pictures that we took this year.  Andrea Bacle, an amazing photographer, in The Woodlands took these pictures near the boathouse.  We loved them all and it was hard to decide which ones to frame!!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It's been a year of adventure for us.  We started off the year celebrating Chris's 40th birthday with 18 days in New Zealand.

Emilia and Beau started a new school year.  Emilia in Year 4 and Beau in Kindy at the same school.  They also started soccer again.  Beau playing U5 and Emilia playing on a U11 all girls team.

Then we were given the opportunity to move back to Houston in July... after Chris's parents and our niece Bailey visited Perth.  So the kids only completed half of the school year.

We moved back to Houston (The Woodlands) in time to (re)start the school year here.  So Emilia (re)started 4th grade and Beau went to Pre-K.

We're in the process of moving back into our house since our renters found a new place and agreed to move out before their lease expired so that's what we're doing for Christmas this year.  Along with watching the Houston Ballet Nutcracker, decorating cookies and of course watching the new Star Wars movie!

Here's our Christmas card to all of you!

(Thank you Andrea Bacle for such great pictures)

Dad's 68th Birthday

We went up to the ranch to celebrate my Dad's 68th birthday.  In Texas fashion, my dad got a gun "The Judge" with lots of different ammo and we checked out their cows.
