We went to Houston to visit Tia Nana and family while Lito was there for the day delivering gifts. I say "we" but actually Sebastian and I had to stay home because he started running fever Christmas afternoon! Austin was super Daddy! He took them first to meet a lady near Houston who had some ice skates we wanted to buy for Mariana. Then he took everyone to the mall with the AG store so the girls could spend their gift cards they received from Lito and Lita and ride the big carousel there. Finally, the went to Tia Nana's house for lunch with them and Lito and headed home. What a day!
We also spent a day with the P family attending the new Star Wars movie together (minus our little ones who stayed with Pawpaw and Manah), then we all went to daily mass and family night at Carino's afterward. We had theW family over the next night for dinner! (Both families have one of our Godchildren, so it was extra nice to spend a little Christmas with them!)
Today I took Mariana and a good friend of hers ice skating so she could try out her new skates and have a playdate at the same time. They had a lot of fun.
We made a pilgrimage to St. Mary's, a Jubilee sight for the Year of Mercy, and made confession and mass, then had dinner with Manah and Pawpaw after mass.
Here are some other little moments...
trying a new hair style
And of course some board games
