Unsure but still adorable
Fourth of July
Helping mom do chores
July 18th: Car got broken in to and my purse with EVERYTHING stolen. Don't EVER leave your purse in your car even if you think you've hidden it.
To add injury to insult, while waiting 2 hours for the police to NOT EVER arrive Ben was plowed down by a teen on a bike who just got right back on his bike and kept going without apologizing. Needless to say we have not been back to that park. Lesson Learned BIG time!

We were given admission tickets for the Texas State Fair. After paying for parking, ONE ride and a pop sickle it still cost $50. I don't know how anyone affords to go(?) We lasted about two hours and left hungry and sweaty.

One of those moments where your kids are being adorable and I quickly grab my phone and plead, "DON'T MOVE!"

The rain is a little chilly now but baby doesn't seem to mind =)
I don't do crafts. However, I got super stressed out and spent an entire day stress-crafting. I even ran out of green craft paper so I used a marker and MADE green paper. Unfortunately it was super windy the next two days and everything was completely destroyed within 48 hours.
My kids in awe of the Christmas Spirit
Cassi took us out for Whataburger after we went to a giant book warehouse! It was so much fun!!! Here is Ben so happy he gets to sit between two babies as he continuously tells me he wants, "159 more babies!" Ummm okay...

Needless to say 2016 was rough financially, SUPER ROUGH. It was our first full year without me working and Tom striving toward higher management while still attending college one course at a time. We have VERY high hopes for 2017 financially. As always, Just KEEP Swimming (and praying)!
