Last weekend we headed to Austin to see Uncle Clint (Chris’ Brother) and Aunt Andrea to celebrate Christmas together! Since they don’t live super close and Andrea was graduating this weekend with her Master’s…CONGRATS ANDREA! We decided to head down a little earlier and start some new traditions, and just hang out in Austin!

They live in a SUPER trendy apartment that is basically in a mall…that’s right they live in a MALL!!! Their apartment is over the American Eagle. I could have totally gotten used to that! The girls loved it…it’s an outdoor mall and the weather was FANTASTIC. We spent tons of time walking around outside. I didn’t get many pics or any really of the adults! OOPS, oh well!

The Girls taking in all the beautiful decorations


Watching the fountain…we spent lots of time there. IMG_8102 IMG_8103

We had tons of fun going to a Christmas Party, lots of good eating, looking at Christmas lights and making Christmas cookies! The girls got sick Saturday night with ear infections so they were a little grumpy but other than that we had a great time and CAN’T wait to do it again next year!

22 Months!

WoW, I haven’t blogged in FOREVER. We have had at least one sick person in the Tarrant household since Halloween. I am just ready for us all to be healthy!!! In the mist of everyone being sick we turned 22 months, crazy! I have been thinking a lot lately how much they have changed over the last two years. The last couple months have literally been some of the hardest months of my life! The girls have been extremely challenging, partly due to being sick but partly to turning 2! All that being said the last couple of weeks they have been GREAT! They are getting to be so much fun!


I thought I would show off some of our new pictures from one out of the two latest photo shoots!!! We have taken two sets of family pictures in the last month…More to come about that! I LOVE the new pictures taken by my GOOD friend Hannah! Thanks Hannah, we love you!
