Christmas Day

Don't mind posing

Image
This is Lillian and her new Lalaloopsy doll whose name is Sugar Crumb Cake or something like that.  I equally love these little dolls.  I got one for Jack too named Ace Fender Bender and already bought another for Lillian's birthday whose name is something like Rose and Pink Petals.

Her dad is really enjoying the camera these days and Lillian is always ready to pose for him.  I really don't think either of us can explain some of these poses though, crazy kid.

Park Visit

Image
Kyle took the kids out one morning last week to play at the park. They had fun but didn't last too long due to the cold temps. It's finally decided to warm up a bit and the sun has come out.

Merry Christmas and Congratulations!

What a wonderful day! Lots of great pictures to post but I wanted to post the news of my new niece being born this evening.

Christmas celebration with the CP Weltys

Image
Since our College Park cousins left this morning we decided to enjoy a little pre-Christmas celebration that included a visit to the Suspension Bridge, the park, cookie baking and decorating, opening presents, grilled ribs (!), and cookie eating.  It was a lot of fun and we are very sorry to have said good-bye to them this morning.  But thanks so much for coming!!!

First elementary school show

Image
Tuesday night we all went to hear Lillian and the rest of the Hillcrest Dolphins sing for their Christmas Show.  Lillian's class sang 6 songs and we were very proud of her.

Visitors from Afar

At long last, our family from Maryland has made it down to Texas.  Wesley was released from the hospital a few hours before they arrived, and he's doing quite well now.

We (everyone except the schoolgirl) enjoyed a few hours at the Mayborn Museum yesterday.  The weather has turned nicer today, and we're planning to head over to the park.








The kids's first Christmas

Image

One, two, three

Image
One  On Friday after Thanksgiving we went to Homestead Heritage for their annual fair.  They have lots of good food, crafts to buy and make, and lots of animals to ride, pet, and learn about.  We kept it simple. We visited the petting area, sampled apple cider donuts and kettle popcorn, watched a horse get a new shoe, and viewed the sheepdog demonstration.


Two  Another favorite annual activity is Christmas on Fifth at Baylor.  There are pony rides, petting zoo, live nativity, carriage rides, pictures with Santa, cider and cookies, and lots of good Christmas music.  The kids loved the pony ride even Wes!




Three  Church yesterday was cold and rainy.  Our winter has arrived.  The boys wore their matching Welty sweaters that Kyle and Kelsey wore when they were little.  30 year old sweaters!  Lillian is showing off the pom-poms Kyle brought home from the big Baylor game Saturday vs Texas. Baylor won 48-24!  And now they are heading to the Alamo Bowl in late December.  Hmmm...tempting.
