After the wedding festivities in Abilene, we headed to Belton to celebrate my mom's birthday. This included a trip to find the perfect tree, which involved begging Lowe's to allow us to unpack and sift through a fresh crate of trees from the back. Picking out the tree is the majority of the fun, you know. Though not for lack of trying, the purchased tree wasn't perfect when we brought it home but after my mom's diligent attention over the course of 3 days - perfection has been achieved!
and took some great pregnancy shots of her. Can't wait to meet him in March-ish!
Above, my brother sports his perfectly redneck attire, complete with dog. So proud.
We have had a great day spending time with our nieces. They had a great time seeing their beloved Reyah, and enjoyed the dolls we brought from Ecuador.
We are so thankful for the time we have to be here in the States with so many of our friends and family and are soaking up every moment.
Next stop: Abilene!
