a very houston christmas...

This year Lance and I traveled to Houston for Christmas.  For a while, I wasn't sure if we would make it... thanks to a layover in Chicago (P.S. never a good idea in the wintertime)... but after lots of praying and running through airports, we finally made it to Houston.  It was such a great trip... super low key, which is just what we needed this year.  It was the perfect mixture of holiday gatherings and low-key traditions.  Here's what we did on our very Houston Christmas...

...we arrived in Houston at 2:00am... just 2 hours after originally planned... 

...we scheduled mother/daughter mani/pedis...

...we had dinner with these famous people...

...we read on the patio with Dixie...

...we watched some football...

...we grabbed dinner at an old favorite...

...we did some woodworking in the shop... 

...we enjoyed some ridiculously sunny weather...

...we got dressed up...

...we went to the candlelight Christmas Eve service...

...we opened some presents...

...we watched funny you tube videos...

...we did some serious puzzle-ing...

...we drank Christmas mimosas...

...we passed this cutie-pie around...

...we enjoyed some cousin-time...

...we died laughing over this movie...

...we blinked and it was time to fly home...

Then we woke up and did it all over again... No, really.  We stayed one night in Louisville, then packed the car (and our same suitcases) and headed to Georgia the next morning.  Stay tuned next week for a "a very Habersham Christmas..."
