Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We have had a great Holiday season. Here are the highlights!

After Thanksgiving Bryan and I came home decorated the house and enjoyed Christmas movies! Yes, we have a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, but it is ours and we love it.

We had our annual bible study Christmas Party! We love these guys!

Bryan's mom and dad came to visit. We had a great time. We saw the Nutcracker at Bass Hall, went to Cowboys Stadium to watch my old High School football team play and win the State Championship game. (4th year in a row, Go Lake Travis!) We ventured to the Gaylord to enjoy the Christmas decorations, we ate some great food and enjoyed each others company.

For Christmas we headed to Houston. We spent Christmas at mom & Rex's house with Amber. We shopped and baked! Had an amazing time. We were able to rest and relax, which was much needed.

As we head into the new year I am so thankful for so many things throughout 2010. Friends, family, love and support. Ultimately, Thank you Jesus for your Sacrifice and the life, joy and love that you have given us!

Happy Holidays from Shutterfly

The Vaughn’s love Shutterfly! We love everything about it; from their promotions, the cards, the calendars and their prices. We have used Shutterly for several years in the past. Every year we make a calendar for Christmas presents for all of our family members and we love creating photo books to display our pictures and put our memories into words, and I am also excited this year to hopefully use 50 free Holiday cards!

With the Holidays coming up I have been racking my brain about what gifts to buy family, what our travel plans are going to be and last but not least thinking about Christmas cards. Christmas cards are one of my favorite things about the Holidays. I love getting pictures and cards from people with updates from the previous year. It is neat to see the families grow and what people are doing year after year. Getting Christmas cards from Shutterfly would allow us to update and reach our families and friends during the Holiday season.

Checkout some of the neat cards and calendars they have!




I look forward to picking out a fabulous Christmas card to share with friends and family this year as well as making our hit calendars!

(As Claire said, "In full disclosure: In exchange for this review, I received 50 free cards from Shutterfly")

NC Friends!

(I know I am way behind with blogging...had a TON going on. But I actually wrote this after Eric and Anne Michelle left, but I just needed to go back later and add the pictures. Well apparently it took me 2 weeks to get the pictures so finally I can publish the post!)

This past weekend we had some great friends from North Carolina come and visit us! The Feyer's came and spent Friday - Tuesday morning in TX. They left their little girl, Addisyn at home with her grandparents. I felt like I was back in college; we did what we wanted and when we wanted. We ate out all weekend, enjoyed a Ranger baseball game, went shopping, stayed up late, slept in on Saturday and saw 2 movies! Perfect!

All in all we had a ton of fun and can't wait for them to come back. Or better yet...if they would just move to Texas! :)

Here are a few pictures from our awesome weekend!

Friday night we attended the 1st Playoff game to see the Rangers!!!

Saturday night we headed to Ft. Worth to show Eric & Anne Michelle the stockyards and met up with Seth and Jessica.

I guess we wore him out :)

We had a such a great time! We already miss you guys!

Go MOM!!

This past week my mom rented herself a beach house in Holden Beach to WRITE! She is in her last year of school. Not much longer and we are going to have to start calling her Dr. Mom :) But, I just wanted to let everyone know that she is amazing! Not many people, actually, I don't know anyone else that can do what she does. This woman works a full time - FULL TIME job, works on her school work from like 9-2am, is the executive director of Rexanna's Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer, a mom, wife, friend and soooo much more. That doesn't even scratch the surface as to what she does on a day to day basis. She is amazing and I am so proud to be her daughter!!

While she was out in North Carolina Bryan and I sent her a care package. We knew this was a huge week for her and that she needed to get a lot of writing done. So we sent her a few fun things and a friend to keep her company. Funny how the times have changed (daughter sending mom care packages)

Check out a few of the pictures from my mom's week!

Mom called her friend docy! haha..
He sat at her table with her while she worked and kept her company!

He got to see the beach!

Docy even made friends :)

They came to visit Docy and mom each day. I am sure they even cooked for them. Yum.

Keep up the great work mom! You can do it. You are soo almost there! We are sooooo proud. And yes we will call you Dr. Mom. You deserve it :) Love you.

Sarah's Key

I could not put this book down. Ask Bryan, for the past 3 nights I find myself sitting on the couch all night lost in this Historical Fiction book. If you are into Historical Fiction you should definitely read it. I do have to say it wasn't your feel good, pat you on the back book. The book fictionalized the 1942 Paris roundups and deportations, in which thousands of Jewish families were arrested, held at the Vel di Hiv and then transported to Auschwitz. Tied throughout the story about the Jewish families and their struggles and horrible treatment before their death is a story about a modern day journalist who is doing a report/column on this particular event in history for the 60th anniversary. Through her exploration, research and journey she becomes fascinated with Sarah's story and how things in her own life have actually intertwined with things that happened in the summer of 1942.
Awesome book.
