Christmas trek recap

Thought I’d do a little recap with pictures of our trip across the countrty and back! First stop was Pensacola where I snapped some pictures of these beautiful people, posted over here. Next stop was New Orleans (my idea!) ya know where the whole wallet debaucle happened, but good times were still had by all. Have you heard of Lush soaps, grovy organic products that smell divine. Gideon loved holding thier bag throughout New Orleans!
Then finally onto Texas (hubby’s home) where we attended a Christmas eve service complete with fake snow and a live nativity.

 Gideon wouldn’t stop pelting snowballs at kids and he truly has an arm, watch out!
Then a visit to Hannah’s (husband’s sister) farm filled with horses, chickens, trampolines, and Nana!

Christmas Day Nana and Papa read the Christmas story to all of us including all 9 grandchildren, you should have seen them all try and sit still!
 Then we were invited to cowboy church (Where Hannah’s husband Will pastors) and Adam got to speak and share a bit of his story! Thank you so much Hannah and Will it was a total joy to be apart of your amazing church.

Then caught a flight to North Dakota for a wedding where nothing could have prepared me for the pure blistering cold weather, a blizzard to be exact for our entire time there. I really have a whole new respect for people from those cold states, you guys are my hero. The wedding went off without a hitch and despite the raging blizzard outside the warmth and love on the inside was so full and complete, truly a beautiful couple.

 Gorgeous bride and groom inside and out, member them from this post?
Hello handsome husband who was in the sword arch at the wedding! Funny thing happened on the way to North Dakota though, they lost his sword! So he borrowed someone else’s and upon our return to the airport they found it and all was well again!
 We flew back to Texas to begin our drive home to Virginia stopping in Memphis this time for some blues and bbq!
Upon our return to home we ended up with two colds, a cough, a fever blister but also a whole lot of great memories! Thanks for following along!
