We had a super magical "Christmas" weekend in Brownwood! The only thing that would have made it better is if Cloud and his family had been there! Here is a look at what went down!
We started with a day trip to Fredericksburg for some fun & family time! Somehow, we got to ride with Shade & Caity on the way and Paw & B-Maw on the way back - no kids for us! ;)
First stop: Regency Bridge! What a great and beautiful spot for a picnic!
The Colorado River
The oldest suspension bridge in Texas!
Next stop: The Willow City Loop - a 12 mile stretch through glorious land! We stopped at a creek to play! It was about 75 degrees and gorgeous!
Goofy family pictures!
Shade & AJ
Me & Caity
Girls hanging out
We probably could have gone back home after this and the kids would have been happy!
Paw, Blu, & Case

On Sunday morning, we worshipped together at High Mesa Cowboy Church in Brownwood

Hanging with my sister-in-law
And finishing the puzzle...stayed up until 1:30am to do it..
A random sit and reach competition... (Paw won!)
On Sunday night, we loaded up in the back of Paw's trailer and went caroling in the neighborhood and had a campfire!
Monday night, it was time for presents! But first, our traditional Bible reading and candle lighting!
A nail driller thingy for Blu!
And a Fat Max of course!
B-Maw loved her Pioneer Woman butter dish - she makes great faces!
Caedmon loved his new football!
Cason finally has his own BB gun thanks to Uncle Shade & Aunt Caity!
Paw got a grill thingy!
B-Maw gave us huge poster prints of some amazing shots she took of our kids this Fall - can't wait to see them on my walls in Zambia! It was a great Christmas celebration with the Tidwell side of the family!
