Throwback Thursday

I thought this Thursday deserved a little “Throwback”.  I’m throwing it back to some past Januarys…all the way back to 2007 (because that’s when I started blogging-ha).

January 2007-us, the Coxs, and the went out to dinner to celebrate some January birthdays.  This was so far back in the day that I didn’t have to get a babysitter.  🙂

January 2008-We finally bought furniture for our bedroom and “finished” it.  Up to this point we had random bits and pieces family members had given us. I felt so grown up!

January 2009-This was actually from Christmas, but I blogged it in January.  🙂  One year we went to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra at Christmastime to hear the Christmas music.  I was pregnant with Ebby Lee. Probably not the best place for a preggo girl.  I remember getting REALLY sleepy.

January 2010-Ebby Lee and Athena (Tab’s brother’s daughter) got matching outfits and had a little fashion show for us.  

January 2011-The most beautiful day in January.  We hit up the backyard and played and played.

Look at this little kid!!  I completely don’t remember him ever being this little!

January 2012-I remember us having a lazy Sunday night.  We headed out for dinner…me and Nix in matching camo pants.

And these two were looking just as cute!

January 2013-Nixon was the best big brother.  While watching television, I could prop Bowen up in his arm.  Win-win….Bowen thought he was being held (which he kind of was) and Nix was watching a show.  Mama could get some stuff done!

January 2014-I just thought this was funny!!!  7 years later…we had dinner with the same two couples (celebrating the same birthdays).  This time though we all shelled out some cash for those babysitters.  

Thanks so much for taking a little trip down memory lane with me.  XOXO

    That first picture of you, me and Whitney was the day I found out I was pregnant with Kensington :). And we were there to celebrate Rusty's birthday which is on January 18…and two years from that very day, I had Smith :).

    Ebby Lee looks just like her older cousin! And don't you just love the moment that you complete your bedroom, or a room in your house, where you actually bought the furniture- it wasn't hand me downs, or hodge podge anymore, but it's exactly what you picked out and wanted! We are STILL waiting to do that with our living room furniture- ha! (Waiting for the kids to stop ruining it first!)

      I've never heard that before?? I guess in that pic they do have a few of the same features. You'll get your new furniture soon!!

    Ok Erika…I've thought about asking this question more than once and so now I'm just going for it. How tall are you? The entire time I've been following you I have mentally had you as like 5'3" but in the airport picks from Ashby's return and again in these picks I'm thinking you are taller! Non of my dang business….but I often wonder such random stuff like this and also what bloggers I follow sound like. 🙂

    hahahaha! Too funny!!! In 5'6". And at the airport I was wearing wedge booties so probably closer to 5'8" that day! About the voice….I think it always sounds lower then I envision. Hahahahaha!!
