Community Group Christmas and our visit to Sugar Land, TX

Merry Christmas!!! Luke is celebrating his first Christmas in two places this year--first in Houston (specifically Sugar Land), where he will spend time with Mimi, Papa, Aunt Erica and Uncle Andy, and cousins Mitchell, Audrey and Lauren, and then in Tulsa, OK, where he will spend time with Grandma and Grandpa, and all of his aunts and uncles and cousins in Oklahoma. It has been a while since our last post, and a lot has happened since then, so we will be posting several posts today.

First, we celebrated in Austin with a little white elephant gift exchange with our Church community Group.  We had a lot of fun with everyone, and several gifts were "doozies" that I am sure will return next year.  Here are some pics from our little party:

Random Pictures from the past week--here are a few random pictures to share just because I thought they were super cute:

(The pic above in the blow-up bath tub is actually from our trip to Mimi & Papa's, but I had to include it in our random pics part of the post because I thought he had the cutest funny face.)

Later, we traveled to Houston and visited the Houston zoo with Drew's side of the family.  It was a blast!!  Here are some pictures, featuring Mimi & Papa, Drew, Luke & me, and Erica, Mitchell, Audrey & Lauren:

The next day, Drew & I got a treat--we got to play golf together with Drew's dad!  I thought it would be a while before I would get to play again, since we have a little one now, so it was a great treat.  Mimi watched Luke while we played.  Drew and I decided to play scramble style, since we did that last time we played together on this course.  Our goal was to shoot a 76, since last time we shot a 77.  Well, we shot a 72, so we were pretty excited.  Overall, it was a nice day--pretty windy and we got rained on pretty hard for a while, but the temperature was nice---upper 60's/low 70's.  Here are some pictures from the day:

That's enough for this post.  On our next post, we'll post pictures from Christmas!
