We had a small family party for her at our house.

Present time!!!

We had to end the party just in time to go view Gabby's artwork that made it into the Rodeo again this year. She was awarded a blue ribbon. Out of 900 students, she was one out of 22 that got picked to go. We are so proud of her!!!!!!

We are happy to report there have been many celebrations around our household. First, Christmas, then Alex's 4th Birthday, and finding out our baby is a boy and lastly, yesterday Mackenzie's 2nd birthday. This time of year is our busiest, but it's just a reminder of how incredibly blessed we are!!! Happy New Year!!!!
