A little game I like to call "Catch Up"

So I have refused to upload pictures for a bit. Why, because I am the third child and sometimes I throw mental temper tantrums. (or for real ones - just ask my mom and sister about Easter EVERY year.)

But I digress. Really it is because I am mad at myself for not taking more pictures over the holiday season. As in I have NONE that show that Kenny actually has a family. Kenny is not orphaned. I just came down with a cold and let's be honest, was lazy at taking pictures. Kenny even got a fun tripod for Christmas that we put the camera on, and we never took a picture in Maryland.

Now what I DID download and what we took, I will now share...

The Henry siblings all together after Thanksgiving.

My mom, Daisy, and Uncle Paul cruising around Corpus looking at the sights. Please not how they all color-coordinated with a shade of blue. Daisy is sporting her UVA collar.

Daisy's first day at the beach. She LOVED to dig in the sand. She did NOT love the water.

The squadron Christmas party - I had a pretty cute date.

And finally, the few pictures from Christmas. Would you believe there are adults in our family other than Meg? No, I wouldn't either.

New Year's resolution: take more pictures.

Happy 4th Birthday Maeve!

Our little niece is growing up... she turns four today! She is wicked smart and loves books. She is beautiful and some might say a princess. :) I fell in love from the moment I met her, and Uncle Kenny is a big fan. We love you little Maeve and can't wait to see you in March!!!

Such a pretty baby :)
Such a cutie patootie!
Such a cute toddler!
And such a BIG girl!

We love you Maeverini! We miss you lots and hope your 4th birthday is amazing!!!

Missing us?

I got a little note from a friend (thanks Molly) reminding me that people other than my mom and mom-in-law read this little blog.

I will post some pictures of Thanksgiving which was amazing! We had Papaw and Maw (Kenny's grandparents), Uncle Rick and Aunt Cindy (Kenny's side), and my parents for the actual day of Thanksgiving!

Kenny attacking the turkey...ew.
He made it wave at me...
My cute parents! (and our Christmas card photographers)
The in-laws, Kenny and Daisy.

Then we had my aunts and uncles from Texas come on down for the next day and spend some time together. It was our first hosting of Thanksgiving. Our first roasting of turkey. AND Daisy's debut with my parents and Kenny's side of the family.

All were a real hit! I married an amazing cook and we got a pretty sweet puppy.

And because I think these are funny...

Dad and I attempting to pose to see how the Christmas card should look. Dad has Daisy's lamb in his hand so he can get her attention when we take the picture. Mom is the professional photog - she did run Cox's newspaper for years. She has major credentials.
Here I was the one that ruined the picture. The wind was blowing - and I am kind of vain about my hair looking good.
Here was the winner. Thanks Mom for being an awesome photographer. Dad thanks for being a fill in model and the one with the squeaky toy.
