Catching up

Hello friends and family! Let's catch up on what Mr. Crabtree and I have been up to these days. Are you ready? Here we go!

WARNING: All pictures are out of order. :) Gotta keep ya on your toes.

January 8th we married off two of our favorite people in the world, Travis and Lindsay. What an honor it was for us to be a part of their special day. It was a day filled with love, worship, friends, and all things Texas. What a beautiful weekend. Thank you to the Cooper's and Foreman's for their hospitality, generousity and making us all feel like family.
Isn't he handsom? I'm one lucky gal.
Best Friends. We love our Baylor Family. No really. It's kind of out of control how much we love these people.

Mr. and Mrs! Literally on their way out the door from their reception and I realized we hadn't even gotten ONE picture with them all weekend! I'm so glad we snapped this at the last second!

On our way down to the wedding Jonny surprised me with a little birthday side trip to Amarillo. We stayed at a beautiful bed and breakfast and got to do some hiking in Palo Duro Canyon.

Absolutely gorgeous. And, the weather was perfect. :)

Mid-January we got to celebrate Caleb's FIRST birthday. I'm sorry. Did you say one WHOLE year? I don't believe it. Where did all that time go?

Ummm...I'm not sure what's going on in this picture, but what I am sure of is that it's probably hillarious. I think Aunt Katie and Aunt Kaleigh (say that 10 times fast.) are encouraging Caleb to eat more cake. ;)

The birthday boy with (almost) all his Aunts and Uncles. (we missed you Uncle Brian and Uncle Paul!)
Oh. And I turned 24 on the 5th. And guess what I got....
A BIKE!!!! I'm super stoked. Now I can go on bike rides with my sweetie. :) Bikes always remind me of my Grandma honey. One of her favorite songs was "Bicycle built for two". Such a sweet song.
A few Sundays ago Jonny and I took an afternoon trip to the farm. He went scouting while I sat in the car with Lila and read "The Pioneer Woman." Simply wonderful.

My huntin' man. Now all he needs is a black lab. :) oh, and a truck.

CHRISTMAS! No, I haven't forgotten about it. Here are a few pics. (More like several.)
Christmas at the Crabtree's. Caleb got a radio flyer little red wagon from his Crabtree Aunts and Uncles.

Although, He seemed to like the little blue camping cup my mom got for him more. ;)

Three huntin' amigos.

Christmas morning with my family:
Dad got Jen and I bracelets from Tiffany's with a lock charm on them. And my mom got a Tiffany's necklace with the key. Such a special gift that we will forever cherish.

If you don't think that's cute, you must not have a soul.
Me and my honey Christmas morning.
This just in: Dad is officially a fiji. He has mastered the front tuck.
Lucy girl. Her favorite spot, by the fire.
Christmas Eve we celebrate at my Granny's house with my Mom's side of the family.
All the grand-kids. Some are happy, some are sad, some aren't sure how they feel. :)
And every Christmas eve we eat lunch at central dairy. Hot dogs and ice cream. YUM!
At dixon's chili in Lee's Summit for lunch. Best. Chili. Ever.
Jonny and I celebrated Christmas early. We opened presents before we went to go see the Nutcracker, compliments of our friend Karen, who works for the Kansas City Ballet. Thanks again, Karen!
Me and Lila bear in front of our tree.
Oh, and I'm not sure if you heard. But, a couple weeks ago mother nature thought it would be fun do dump a feet or two of snow on us. Thanks mother nature!
Yea, you best be yielding.
And don't worry. Apparently engineers are crazy and go to work when no one else does... Over acheivers.
One Saturday morning Jonny and I woke up to find our backyard filled with beautiful birds. Cardinals, blue jays, robins, woodpeckers, finches. We're not sure why, but it was awesome.
Hi cute little birdie!
Lastly, I want to introduce you to Libby.
I know what you're thinking. "How cool! You got another dog!" Wrong. She was ours for a couple of days until we gave her to a family who lost their dog right before Christmas. She's a gorgeous dog. Half Irish-setter and Yellow Lab. She now lives out in the country on lots of land so she can run and play all day! :)

Thanks for tuning in. Hope you enjoyed catching up with us as much as I did!

How BIG are you?!

Me: "Caleb, how big are you?!!"
Caleb: "Duh, Aunt Katie...I'm this big, what's it to ya?"
