This past Saturday we trudged up the soggy Santa Cruz Mountains for our 2nd annual Christmas tree cutting.

We hiked and hiked and hiked in mud and slosh and probably looked at about 30 trees. Unfortunately we couldn’t find The Perfect One but we found one which we all three agreed on, which says A LOT in our household!

This year we had a new member of the family, Ms. Stella. Her partner in crime was (mostly) appropriately dressed for the occasion in her Mrs. Claus outfit. But for those of you that know her it doesn’t have to be Christmas for her to wear it. It could be in the middle of summer in 90 degree humidity in Austin, Texas (true story!).

I love how the Santa Cruz Mountains look from the top! Beautiful and I feel so lucky to have this in my backyard!

And for those wondering, “Why ‘Happy Taco Tuesday?'” As we were paying for our tree Early Bird in all her comical wit decided to amuse the cashier by yelling “Happy Taco Tuesday” instead of your normal run-of-the-mill boring expected “Merry Christmas.” I mean, anybody can say that! (She does keep it lively around here!)

All the searching must have worn them out!

Sneak Peek into these two sweet and beautiful girls’ relationship.

These sisters were just so so sweet when we met up. They were super patient, even stomping through the mud, and up for almost any place I asked them to go. I can also tell they have an awesome bond that only two sisters share! Thank you for letting me have a glimpse into your relationship!!

I met up with the super sweet and excited almost first time parents a couple of months ago at one of my favorite beaches! It was over cast and a little chilly but that meant less people on the beach so we had it almost all to ourselves. We had a great time wondering around quaint area just off the beach.

A few weeks later I was able to meet the little man!

I got to meet up with this sweet sweet little man & his awesome mom (which we go waaaay back ;)) in Dallas, Texas last week!

In the sneak peek pics it didn’t hurt that his mom was making a complete goof ball of herself! (Hey, we do what we gotta do to get the shot!)

So thankful for witty lifelong friends…. and their equally-as-witty kids!
