Ketchup. 

I’ve been meaning to post individual accounts of everything we’ve been up to this year, but I never seem to have time, and when I do, the task seems daunting.  So instead, here’s a photo blog of all the fun stuff that’s been going on =)

We started the year celebrating Ellexa’s 4th (!) birthday with just our little family at Peter Piper. Then we had our traditional birthday celebration at our place with the fam.

IMG_1596…She hates “mordidas” and so do I, so this is as much as I let them get her…

Then we celebrated Charro Days.  We rarely do anything for this local holiday, but it’s always fun dressing up the kids when they’re little.  Ellexa actually wore the same outfit she used when she was 9 months (we had stitched it up since her and I came out on a float that year) and it fit perfectly.  For Elliah, I had to pull together a makeshift costume since I had  apparently given away the outfits from the previous years.  

IMG_0174…Adorable…

IMG_0180…And I finally went out and bought them shirts since they’ll be dressing up every year…

Caleb continued to play basketball with his awesome team.

…My girls ❤  Elliah was still upset here because we left the petting area…

We caught a Spurs game.  And not just any Spurs game: the nail biter that was Golden State VS San Antonio which resulted in another home win for our beloved Spurs!

It’s been a busy, eventful, fun-filled year and it’s barely 1/4 of the way through.  We’ve got exciting things coming up in the next few months and it seems summer is just around the corner.  Can’t wait!
