January Jabber

The month of January usually keeps me inside hibernating, unless the the temps are at least above 50 degrees.

A couple of weeks ago me and Skye got an urge to enjoy the great outdoors, so we headed to nearby McKinney Falls. We were having such a good time trying to find ways to cross the upper falls that I didn't get many pictures. We ended up having to take our shoes off and cross through the water to get to the other side of the falls....

We had a fun mom/daughter day together.

A few days ago Toby and I took a hike on Town Lake.....


Today Skye asked me to take her up to the park so she could practice her basketball. I took the opportunity to take a little hike and take pictures.

I had me a little sit right here and just enjoyed the day and scenery....

I love foggy cold days and these old Post Oaks give the perfect setting for the weather...

After I got back from my little hike, I shot some hoops with Skye. It's times like these that only reinforce the idea that I'm not athletically inclined in the least.

Goodbye 2016

I rate 2016 as a good year, with the end of year being the best part of it.

Christmas was quite and relaxing, which I don't think any of the three of us had any complaints about.

I spent most of the last week of the year in a sneezing, eye itching frenzy compliments of an over excessive amount of cedar pollen.

As we usually do every year, we sat outside on the pool deck and watched the firework show as we rang in the new year.

Now that Toby is back at Atomic and has a longer drive to work, we decided to treat ourselves to a new car. With Skye driving in the not too off future, we needed to add an extra vehicle anyway......I think she thinks it's hers the way she bosses us about the way to drive it.

She likes to drive it too. She's a good, careful driver. Do I look a little nervous??...

These are our New Year's Day family photos. I think I'm shrinking with age....

I missed having Lucas and Emily this year, but I understand it's a long drive. Maybe next time we will be the one's making the trip to Alabama.
