Aubrey creating her masterpiece. Joey's mom decided to have the grandkids draw and paint the playroom. It was a fun project. They LOVED being a part of this and really enjoyed using their imaginations.
Ella hard at work
Cali and Nana supervising
Ella's favorite part was painting. Just remember girls:only on Nana's walls! :)
Kai, Don, Aubrey & Ella painting away
Cali spending time with her Auntie Nikki
Joey took this picture and I think Aubrey looks so beautiful in it. Her Tata put this flower in her hair.
Kai said he could eat a whole turkey leg. He didn't finish half of it, but at least he had confidence in himself:)
Ella gettin silly during a game of Apples to Apples junior. She somehow managed to stick one of the cards to her forehead and dance around the living room without it falling off. I'm guessing she used a little spit. Apples to Apples is one of our favorite family games. If you have never played, you should! Its fun!

Ella and my brother,Mark. Hey ladies-this handsome rm is single and lookin! :)
My brother Taylor has had an obsession with wearing book sleeves as hats lately.
Cali isn't too sure
My mom in her new kitchen. My parents totally redid their kitchen a couple of months ago and I think it looks fabuloso.
Aubrey, Ella and their cousin, Jenna, playing in my grandparents backyard. This the same awesome backyard I grew up playing in. It is HUGE. Aubrey was feeling pretty good Thanksgiving day but that night is when her fever went back up. I'm guessing that is when her ear infection really came on. Maybe I shouldn't have let her play outside that day when she was recovering from a sinus infection. I'm a bad mom I guess. She had fun though!
Cali & Mama
Football with Austin & Taylor
My cousin, Josh, and his daughter Berlin, Joey & Cali. Berlin and Cali are only 1 month apart. They had a lot of catching up to do(Berlin and Cali. Ok, Josh and Joey too:)
My mommy, me & Cali hanging out with everyone at my Grandma's
We went with my family to Funtrackers, a go-cart, mini-golf and arcade center. The girls had a BLAST riding the go-carts. It was Ella's first time and she was smiling one of the biggest smiles we have ever seen! They were both laughing and laughing.

Now onto the next problem-the crapigator. We purchased a 2004 Lincoln Navigator back in August and we swear someone rolled this thing down a cliff before selling it to us. The picture to the left is just to give effect-its not really what happened to us:) It gave us problems the night before we were to leave. We took it to a place to get it fixed. They charged us over $600 by replacing a part that didn't even need to be replaced. So, the car wasn't fixed and we are out $600. We plan on fighting this charge to the death! This place, Champion Ford in Corpus Christi, was SOOOO dishonest and we are reporting them to the BBB. Those punks! So, no place anywhere would be able to fix our car by yesterday(Sunday) and we had to get home. So, we drove home yesterday on lots of prayers and we made it. It is a miracle. The car is now in another shop and now we get to spend more money. YEA! I hope these people fix it and are honest about it. I hate auto shops. Oh yeah, and we came home to a broken dishwasher which we get to pay more $ to get fixed today. Good times. So, despite a lot of stress and a lot of $$ down the tubes right before Christmas(perfect timing) we are all home and safe and thats what matters. Thats what I have to keep telling myself everytime I get mad about everything. Breathe Holly, breathe:) So, thats the story. I will post pictures from the good parts of our trip soon...

Note: In the "A bear!" picture, I am not dissing that lady like I now am realizing it may have seemed. She was in the bear exhibit testing the electric fences. She was where the bear was supposed to be, so we just pretended she was the bear and imagined how funny it would've been if she had acted like one.

A very loud motorcycle drove by...
Still acting silly
Ella got mad at Aubrey. Aubrey doesn't look like she cares.
The only picture that turned out half-way normal. We got a little belly showing and Aubrey isn't smiling. So, not the best picture of the two of them. And yeah, I had to lay Cali down. She was tuckered out after church and wanted nothing to do with getting her picture taken.And I just had to throw this one in too. Joey asked Aubrey to smile. She smiled, but with a flare that reminds me of her mother(which would be me).

Anyways, I thought I was going to lose these priceless pictures, but thank goodness I didn't. I have amazing form when I bowl....simply amazing.. We had fun that night. It is SO great to have some friends to do Girls Night Outs with once a month. I just love it!
Go Sarah! She beat me, but not too badly. I think she threw a few gutter balls so I wouldn't look so bad. Thanks Sarah:) And I don't know why I took pictures of my friends butts, but I did, oKaY!
Melissa was the master bowler of the night. She kicked all of our butts. I hate her :)
Me, Sarah & Melissa at our late night Sonic stop. We made the Sonic girl take our picture. When I gave her the camera, she took off running with it! I had to chase her down, kick her in the back, knock her down, and pry the camera out of her hands. Stupid sonic waitress.
Um, yeah, I was kidding about that. But that would've been crazy, wouldn't it have?
