New Year's Eve Celebration and Louisiana Fun

Happy New Year (a little late)!
Logan and Lauren stayed with us for a few days last weekend while Kelly and Eric went on a nice trip together for their anniversary.
I couldn't wait to spend New Year's with Russell, Mama, Logan and Lauren. We were pretty excited about it so we decided to celebrate! Here are hats, crowns for the girls, new year necklaces, noise makers and balloons! Lauren and I made confetti so we could throw it in the air and yell, "HAPPY NEW YEAR!"
Belle and Russell got a little tired waiting for 12 to roll around!

Lauren made a Happy New Year sign!

WOOHOO! It's 2010!!! Can ya'll tell we are excited?!

New Year's Kisses!
On New Year's Day, we decided to take a trip to Bossier City, Louisiana. When Russell and I dated, we loved coming to Louisiana for dates and day trips. Posados was our favorite restaurant.
Logan tried a homemade tortilla with butter and honey-bliss!

Mama, Lauren and I rode on the carousel. It was fun! After that Lauren and I took pictures in a photo booth!

We enjoyed riding on the trolley at the Louisiana Boardwalk. So fun!

It was chilly outside!

Logan loves reading!

We took Lauren to a little girl's paradise:Claire's! Lauren could NOT make her mind up. She ended up getting 2 lip glosses!

We were walking by Build A Bear Workshop and saw my uncle Johnny, cousin, John Michael and then walked in Build A Bear and got to visit with my Aunt Nancy and cousin Katie Lee! Here is Katie Lee and Lauren. It was Katie's first time at Build A Bear. We helped her make one and she had fun!

Nancy and I even got to visit a little bit, of course! :)

And from a little girls paradise---to a guys paradise:Bass Pro Shops!!!
Russell LOVES this place. I tell ya'll what. I think if I told him he could stay there 24 hours he would.

Sunday afternoon, we thought we could go to Jackie and Ricky's with L & L.
They enjoyed 4 wheel riding with Russell.

Lauren had a ball too!

I had to ride on the 4 wheeler too!

Lauren and I even played w/ makeup! She is such a girly girl!

Well I think I am officially caught up w/ blogging! I hope ya'll are having a great week!
We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. Romans 12:6
