Happy birthday Amy! I hope you have an amazing day, you truly deserve it. I wish we could be there to celebrate with you:(
Here are just a few of the many, many fun times we have had. I love and miss you!!

Christmas time!

I started decorating for Christmas a little early (before Thanksgiving) and decided to put the tree up since I had some time off. We thought that since this year would be the first Christmas for Hayden we had to put up lights on the house. We bought new stockings (we'll hold off on monograming names until our family is complete so they will all be the same...we did buy another stocking to have for baby #2). Hayden's stocking is the red one. We aren't finished with all the lights on the house or decorations on the tree but I got so excited thinking about Christmas that I had to post them. Matt did a fantastic job putting the lights up on the house...I am so proud of him! :)

Getting Ready for New Mexico

I just had to share this picture of little HJ from this afternoon. We were putting away clothes and playing in his room when I got distracted by his new hat (of course I had to put it on him). He loved wearing it...hopefully it will keep his little ears warm when we travel to New Mexico.

Thanksgiving Break

We went to Uvalde for some of our Thanksgiving holiday and had a great time. We got there Wednesday night, but still had time for Mema, Nana, and Pawpaw to "oooh and ahhh" over Hayden before it was bedtime. We went out to the ranch on Thursday to celebrate and have our Thanksgiving meal. We got to see and spend the day with the Cain side of the family...which is always a treat! We went to see my Mom's new house on Friday morning and then headed back to San Antonio. Matt and I had a relaxing Friday night...we ordered Sushi and watched a movie. Saturday afternoon Pappa Grande came to SA to spend the weekend with us, Jess, Brittany, and Presley. We ate lunch at our house, the boys headed out to run errands, and Brittany and I had a massage. We had dinner and spent the night at the other Noble household. We wish we could have seen all of our family and friends this past week, but look forward to seeing you all soon!

I took these pictures of Hayden and Presley in a chair that was Jess' when he was their age. Hayden and Presley are so much fun to watch together...they are really starting to realize that each other exists and that they are a constant in each other's lives.

Hayden's Baptism

We had Hayden's Baptism in Horseshoe Bay on November 16th. Not only is this church special to us because it is where Matt and I were married, but because Matt's Grandparents attended it and had many friends in the congregation. It was absolutely a wonderful weekend filled with family and special memories. Unfortunately we didn't get to take many pictures because Hayden wasn't feeling well.

Here we go... first post! I love the idea of having a specific place for family and friends to go so they can read updates and see the latest pictures of our family. I feel like there are so many times that you want to update people and see how everything is with them, but something comes up or you keep missing each other's calls. I always love reading other people's blogs and feel like I get a quick update of their life. So, here goes...
