Happy New Year!

As has become tradition, we spent New Years with my (former) college roommates and their families. We absolutely love getting together with them, so we try to do it three times a year (alternating houses each time since we're in three completely different areas of Texas).

Since NYE fell on a Friday this year and I need to be back for church on Sundays, we had to make it a shorter trip than we would've liked. Candace and Ricky hosted this year, so we left late on Friday morning and came back on Saturday night. Fortunately it's only a 2.5 hour drive to the north part of Austin, and Avery was a champ in the car.

Ricky grilled some yummy fajitas

while Ross and Matt entertained the kids with bubbles (and the girls set things up in the kitchen)
Avery loves her black beans
I'm pretty sure this is the only picture we managed to get of all three kids

Let them eat Mexican food!
I can't get over how grown up Avery looks these days

Don't we know how to party??

Bahaha I love this picture. Avery's like, what the heck?
After we pigged out on fajitas and got the kids in bed, the girls sat on the kitchen counters just talking over funfetti cookies and hot chocolate while the boys watched Clash of the Titans in the living room.

We did make it to midnight but not much longer after that. On Saturday though we hit the Round Rock Outlets, and while the deals were pretty easy for me to pass up, it was still fun to walk around and browse.

I love love love this picture! Avery is totally a daddy's girl.

Such a precious family :) 

Although I wish we didn't all live so far away and could get together way more often, I absolutely love hanging out with these girls and their families. Can't wait until April!

Isn't it great getting together with old friends? I'm making it a point this year to do it.
