Yes, its been MONTHS since I last updated this blog.  I'm just so busy. I attended a baby shower for one of my best friends that I have known since we were little girls last month, and she told me that she loved my blog and wished I updated it more.  I felt bad.  Blogging is one way family and friends who live far can check in on my family and see what we have been up to.  I'm sure I have said this before, but I mean it this time...I'm going to stop slacking and write more often.  I can't promise a new post everyday or even every other day, but at least once a week.  So, let me get started.   This is going to have a ton of pictures, and I will try to make it short and sweet! A lot has happened since last time I updated.  The girls finished their first semester of school (not sure if its called "semester" in elementary school, but it sounds good)  and they absolutely LOVE school this year.  Delilah joined the fine arts club, and has really enjoyed it.  She also played softball this fall, and their team did so awesome! Trinity was less thrilled about her game and snoozed on the equipment bag.
Delilah is no longer competing in gymnastics.  She has moved on to All Star Cheerleading.  Something I've been avoiding since she was 3.  She is "trying" it out and finishing out the competition season which means she has a lot of choreography to learn in a short amount of time before Nationals (which from what I hear is a big deal). 

Celeste is awesome like aways! We made a trip to the eye doctor not too long ago, and she was in need of glasses.  Astigmatism in both eyes and her vision in each eye is different.  Thanks to my husband who noticed she couldn't see well, Celeste looks cuter than ever with her new glasses.
Trinity is such a big girl.  She no longer looks like a baby.  She reminds everyone that she will be 4 soon.  I can't believe 4!  She had a little accident before Thanksgiving.  Delilah and Trinity were playing on the sofa and she fell off the arm of the sofa and landed right on her elbow.  After a trip to the doctor and a few x-rays it was confirmed that she broke her elbow.  She handled it well, and picked out a hot pink cast! 

Thanksgiving was great.  We spent the day with family and ate some great food.  The weather was warm so the kids played all day with cousins.
After Thanksgiving we packed our bags boarded a plane and headed to...

Breckenridge Colorado!  Oh my I can't even tell you how COLD it was there.  You have to remember where we live in Texas it stays in the 70s during the winter.  So, in the mountains where we stayed it was 2 degrees.  Major change! 

We had so much fun the week we were there.  Some of the things we did were a gondola ride up the mountain.

 A roller coaster ride on the mountain through trees
 We saw the play "A Christmas Story" at a little theater in town.

 We went tubing down a big hill

 We took a long drive, and visited the cutest little towns on the edge of mountains.

 Took ski classes and then tried it on our own

Went dog sledding
 Had a visitor at our balcony every morning
 and just enjoyed time to relax

Colorado was fun, but I sure was glad to be back in warm Texas!!  Christmas came way to fast. 
We enjoyed a nice quiet Christmas Eve at my Mom's.  The girls had fun opening gifts.

and we all had fun playing games!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and great start to the New Year!
