Christmas Snapshots

December 26, 2013

We are in Dallas, Texas visiting my sister and Matt on their new home turf along with Matt A’s parents and sister Chelsea and my parents. We arrived late on Christmas Eve with a teething and sleepy baby but rallied the next morning for a lovely Christmas brunch followed by playtime outside in glorious warmish weather and Christmas dinner at my sister’s. Mazen lasted through the pie course and then we whisked him home to bed.

Looks like your sister and brother-in-law put on a beautiful Christmas and I love that Mazen classed up with joint with his tie and tie clip! The look on his face in the photo of Matt tossing him in the air is just sheer joy!

It’s from Etsy – a secret santa gift from Theodora so she will know where!

It actually ended up not being from Etsy – it’s American Apparel!

Hope you enjoyed your time in Big D! We’ve certainly had lovely weather this week. Did your relatives take you out for some good Tex-Mex? (Matt’s Ranchero in Lakewood or Mi Cocina are two favorites!) If you’re still here and have time, you’d love the Dallas Arboretum near White Rock Lake with it’s all new children’s garden.
Merry Christmas!

I actually live right in Uptown Dallas!! Hope you enjoy your time here and are able to check out some of the great local restaurants! If you’re right in the city, you should go to the Katy Trail if you haven’t already too! :)

Adorable photos and I love the scarf you’re wearing!
