Family Photos

We had some beautiful family pictures taken this fall that I just had to share. We used a new photographer this time, and she did an amazing job wrangling our boys and even getting a few couple shots of me and Ryan (that hasn't happened since our wedding!). Thanks, Sarah Avitua, for the wonderful photos!

The most wonderful time of the year...

We've had so much fun celebrating the Christmas season with the boys this year. We've been to see Santa (three times!), watched some amazing trains, decorated cookies, and looked at Christmas lights. Here's a quick recap of all we've been up to.

PS - two of our visits to Santa aren't documented because my usually social first-born was freaking out at the sight of the merry old elf. Thankfully, he warmed up by the time we went to see him at Bass Pro Shop. Jasper, on the other hand, screams every time he sits on Santa's lap - guess its a good thing he's not big enough to wiggle away yet :)

Trains at Northpark - the boys were IN LOVE with all the amazing little engines!

We had a great Thanksgiving this year. We spent time at the lake and cheered our Baylor Bears onto victory over the Red Raiders. The James Gang and Hampton Crew were in town, and we loved spending time with them. We have so much to be thankful for in our family - the Lord has truly blessed us!

 Jasper...soaking up some teenage wisdom

Griff and Poppa getting in some shared iPad time...or maybe shared nap time :)

 Lots of fun things to do outside....



more jeepin'

and, of course...a little touch football

Then home to cheer on our team...

Sic 'em Bears!!!

Sweet Graham stayed home with us while the rest of the Fitzhugh/Freshwater clan went to the game

Those cousins sure can wear a guy out...

After all that fun, it was back to reality with a good old fashioned fall leaf roundup....still pretty fun for a couple of helpful little boys :)

Homecoming at Baylor

We had a fun (and exhausting) trip to Waco last weekend for Homecoming. It's a completely different experience with the boys, and we're looking forward to many more years of green and gold celebrations.

We had time to explore campus a bit...

before some late night fun at the bonfire :)

The next day the parade was a big hit with the boys...
if only one of the floats hadn't broken down and stopped the whole thing!

Tailgate time!
