The House of Higgins: February 11

Dallas Arboretum: First Trip of the Year

We had a free day and it was supposed to be sunny and in the 60's so we planned to hit up the Arboretum with friends and it most definitely was cloudy and freezing but we still went. Hah. I didn't even have coats for my kids. Whoops. They still had fun with their friends!














Play All Day

One day we got home from the park and I couldn't find Embry. She immediately grabbed some ponies and was playing quietly behind the couch. I absolutely love this age and how well she plays alone and oh her imagination! So great! Love these shots.





 

Todd's ENT Follow Up

Mid January we had an ENT follow up. He had a few hearing tests and his hearing was 100% on all of them. Then we saw the doctor and his tubes were placed great and open and working perfectly!





Magnolia Day Trip for Kiki's Birthday

We spent Saturday January 21 meeting Mark and Kathleen in Waco at Magnolia for Kathleen's Birthday! It was a gorgeous afternoon and we all had a blast eating food truck food, Magnolia cupcakes, and running around! Unfortunately, Embry got carsick on the drive home but at this point we're kinda used to her motion sickness. I'm so bummed she inherited this yucky trait from me.























 

Dallas Zoo





























The Harts Visit Dallas

Jon had to travel to Ohio over a weekend so Ruthie decided to head to Dallas and we were SOOOO excited!!! We had fun hitting up the Perot Museum, playing at home, shopping, etc! I love that the cousins get to grow up together!


Embry told me multiple times- Gideon is my favorite baby!

Ford and Embry having quiet time together playing nonstop

Making candy necklaces





Cousin PJ party

















First Night in Sponge Curlers

Embry got sponge rollers in her stocking this Christmas! We kinda forgot about them until recently and we tried them one night and she was in heaven!







I love her so so much!!!


Visit From Nicole and Mark, Kathleen, and Luke

Jacob's cousin Nicole from San Francisco came to stay with us after extending a business trip! She was here for 3 nights! Jacob's parents and brother came up for one night to visit with her too! We had a nice relaxing weekend with lots of chatting, eating, and shopping! 







Embry decided on Super Bowl Sunday she wasn't scared of her bike! She's been addicted ever since!



Dallas Arboretum








Park Weather!

These past few weeks have given us some fabulous park weather and we've been taking full advantage!









Visit From Great Gram and Great Papa

My grandparents from Chicago made their annual trip to Texas and are staying at my parents lake house for the next month. I got to see them in December at my cousins wedding, but my kids haven't seen them since last February! They stopped at our house for a quick 24 hour visit before getting down to Austin and the kids had an absolute blast! They both love when new people are here and love to show off for them.
