Happy Birthday Matt, an Aggie win, a pretty BUT cold day on the island, AND TEAM COLIN UPDATE!!

Last Friday we had a birthday/A&M bowl watching party at our house. This week was Matt's birthday.. I will keep a secret of how old he turned.. let's just say he's not 21 anymore. We had our family and friends over for a great Cotton bowl game, pizza, drinks, and lots of celebrating.

I will try to minimize the mushiness, but I do want to say how much I love my husband, he is truly my best friend. Though our life may not be "perfect" in some ways, our love for each other and our kids is. We face the challenging times together and enjoy all the fun that life has to offer.  So Happy Happy Birthday Matt!

Back to the real news of A&M beating Oklahoma 41-13.. WHOOP! What a great season we had this year. First year in the SEC conference, Manziel winning the Heisman, beating the National champs, and ending the season ranked #5, can't wait until next year!! Saturday we had another game watching party for the Houston Texans.

Sunday we went down to Galveston for a few hours to enjoy the sunshine since it has been raining so much! It was still cold but a pretty day to get out of the house. The kids of course wanted to go to the ice cream & candy shop, who could say no! So there they were eating ice cream in their winter clothes. Matt bought me some much needed NEW wine glasses, can't wait to try them out.

We are gearing up for our annual Team Colin Heart walk. This of course means a lot to us to help raise money for such a great cause, Congenital Heart Defects. Team Colin is also walking in memory of Addison Scott, Colin's heart friend who lost her battle with HLHS in October, just a few weeks shy of her 4th birthday.
DATE & TIME: Saturday Feb. 9 at 9:30am at 900 Bagby Street Downtown Houston. After the 5K walk, there will be live music, face painting, raffles, bounce castles, rock walls, gyro rides, and food vendors. It is a great time for families to get some exercise, support a great cause, and have some fun.
