Christmas in Houston!

Mark and I are spending one week in Houston with my family and one week between San Antonio and Houston with Mark's family. It's been a great time so far! My dad's birthday was on the 15th and my mom's was on the 22nd, so we have been celebrating non-stop. Here are a few pics from the family get together and b-day party.

Our dogs had a little celebration of their own as they made cushion confetti on the back porch.

They're not as innocent as they look.

Christmastime in New Orleans!

This year I made Christmas decorations and ornaments after seeing some fantastic ideas at the Christmas show in Birmingham! It was so much fun! (ok...I didn't make the stockings, but I thought they looked cute and wanted to post them!)

Mark and I love Christmas in New Orleans! From the streetcar sunday school party to the music of First Baptist and the French Quarter, it is a great place to be around Christmas time. This weekend we had two parties and tonight we went to "Keyboards at Christmas" (6 grand piano players play Christmas music at the same time.) Next week is "Christmas on Canal", our choir presentation! Oh yeah...and our Christmas morning, since we will be leaving on the 19th for Houston. YEA!!! I love early Christmas! Hope you have a merry one!
