Houston: 2 of 4 Christmases

After visiting Chicago and visiting my family there for Madi's first of four Christmases, we (Madi and I) headed to Houston! Originally, I planned to arrive and juggle two suitcases, a car seat, stroller, and Madi while trying to get a rental car, install the car seat, and then get on the road. Fortunately, a couple months ago, Jason found out about a meeting in Houston that he needed to attend... and it was the same week I was planning to be there! So Jason bought his ticket to arrive a couple hours before us and after clearing customs he went and got the rental car and came and met us at the airport. I can't imagine how I would have handled everything by myself and I'm so grateful God knew I needed my husband! :-)

Since Jason was there for work, Madi and I drove across town having lunches and coffees with lots of friends and taking Madi to my office.

And we had some fun playing in our l-a-r-g-e hotel room. :-)

My sweet friend Catherine watched Madi while I went and got my hair done. It was a much needed break for Mommy and a ton of fun for Madi and Miss Catherine!

Over the weekend we stayed with Jason's sister Stephanie and her family. I'm so glad we got to spend time with them while we were in town and so glad Jason was able to come and see them! You'll notice there are no pictures of our nephew Jaiden... he was sick so Steph tried to keep him away as best as possible to avoid everyone getting sick.

There was lots of playing and we got to give Sydney her Christmas present - a headband and clip holder that we made!

We visited CEPC on Sunday and afterwards had lunch with our friends Erin and David and their kiddos Noah and Hannah.

Of course there is never enough time, but we used it as best as we could and loved getting to see so many people! And it wouldn't have been possible without some fuel from Starbucks. ;-)
