Caldwell Zoo

It's been a few years since we've been to the Caldwell Zoo (here is the last trip), so we thought we would take advantage of a day off of school and make the trip over to Tyler, Texas.  Our sweet friends the Cannons decided to join us and we couldn't have been more excited.  The Zoo was actually better than I remembered it.  Emily said her favorites were the Ocelot and the Giraffe.  Elson said his favorites were the Penguins and Lion.  My favorite part was that everyone got along perfectly and there was not a fit.  It was a great, easy day. friend Ellen Cannon took all the pictures.  She is amazing.  You should check out Ellen Cannon Photography!

Happy New Year 2016

We had a blast ringing in the New Year with both of our Grandmothers this year!! We did the countdown at 7:30 complete with sparklers, snappers, party poppers!  We even had party food, pizza and cupcakes.  It was a real treat of a night and great way to ring in the New Year!!

Christmas 2015

The twins really understood Christmas and Santa this year, which made it more fun than ever.  They were so excited to wake up Christmas morning.  We even SAW Santa on Christmas at one of the neighbor's houses delivering presents.  After that, we rushed home to get to sleep so he wouldn't skip our house!!  Drew setup a camera in the den and was able to capture a picture of Santa setting out the twins' gifts.  It was a quite magical.  We also enjoyed our day with the whole Smith family.

In the spirit of full disclosure....the end of the day ended in typical four year old fashion with an epic meltdown....I just felt like that should be recorded so we don't forget :)
