We have had a very busy December. A lot of people came over to visit us and we have gone and done a lot of stuff. We have met friends at the mall to do some Christmas shopping and grab lunch, had friends over for dinner, and visited co-workers. We even got to visit a kinder-music class with some friends. So much fun!
Aubrey with Jae's mom, Janice, at Kinder-Music. Aubrey loved the class.

Visiting Rachel and Duana (former co-workers) at work.

Aubrey meets her Great-Uncle Gary.

Our friends Marci and Trey came to Dallas with their new daughter Caroline. She was born in Bryan, TX only 3 days after Aubrey.

Heather (my high-school friend) was in town for the holidays and to perform a show with her band. We met up at North Park to do some last minute shopping and catching up.

We had the Lee's over for dinner. Here is Aaron and his son Asher with Aubrey. Both kids were in their pj's and ready for bed at this point in the evening.

After college I move home and started working for a wonderful family in Dallas. I helped their daughter Catherine with her homework, helped her study for tests, and would occasionally drive her around town to do various things. Well, 7 years later she is all grown up and home from college. I was so excited when she found me on Facebook. We set up a time to get together over her winter break so she could meet Aubrey and we could catch up. She is an amazing girl!

My sorority sister, Kara, was in town for the holidays and stopped by to meet Aubrey. This was their first time to meet. Thanks Kara for coming to see us! Aubrey loves you.

We got snow in Dallas on Christmas Eve. So, we dressed Aubrey in her snow suit and took her out to experience her first snow. She seemed to be very interested.

Cici's Christmas Luncheon

Aubrey and I joined my mom and Mimi at The Chocolate Angel for her Sunday school class annual Christmas luncheon. We had a great time and my mom's friends loved meeting Aubrey. I would have to say she had a pretty good time too.

Aubrey has started baby talk this month and it has been so much fun to listen to her. She loves her voice. She will babble in the car, when we play with her, and especially when she sees her lovie. Her are a few more pictures of our big girl.
Sophie the giraffe was one of her favorite Christmas presents. Thanks Jae and Kai!
