About Me

My photo
I created this blog as a way to "Keep up with the Joneses"! We feel so blessed to get to spend everyday together and my hope is that this blog is a way for us to look back and remember our journey together! I know this will evolve and I cannot wait to see what it turns in to. I have recently added my side business on to the blog. I taking a leap of faith with my photography and cannot wait to see what happens. I hope you enjoy!

Santa Fe 2013

This year for Christmas with the Joneses we decided to head out of town to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I went for the first time two years ago with Jeffrey and his family. I completely fell in love with the city and could easily see why his family had spent many vacations there. It really is a magical place. It is a great place to eat yummy food, explore the town, people watch, look at art, be in the mountains, shop and just spend some quality time with your family. I look forward to many more trips to Santa Fe and cannot wait to bring our kids there. Some of the highlights of the trip include walking the square, playing cards in the La Fonda lobby, shopping town, eating at lots of yummy new restaurants and spending time together. We did not think it would be possible to top our last trip, but I can confidently say we did. We love to travel with Rich & Cathey! It wouldn't be a blog post with our pictures so here we go!































Thankful for Christmas Vacations & Fun Family Time,

Chrismas EVE EVE with the Heflins

Last year Annie and Nathan were engaged at Christmas so they were still doing separate Christmas celebrations. We decided to start a tradition that we could continue with our families for many years. So that is where CHRISTMAS EVE EVE started. We decided we would always have a date and sleepover. I was so excited for this year because it is their first married CHRISTMAS and we all get to be together. We decided to include all our families and go to lunch and the Nutcracker in the afternoon. It was something Annie and I grew up dancing in and it was fun to show our boys what it was all about. We then went to dinner (hibachi) with Annie & Nathan and off to look at lights. We came home for our annual Christmas PJ photo shoot. This  is something Annie and I have done for our whole life and the boys have joined right in! We then spent the evening hanging out and just being together. It was such a fun night and I look forward to many more!














Thankful for traditions,

MJ

Merry Christmas EVE!



We hope you all have the best CHRISTMAS EVE! We are off to celebrate the day with my family! 


Thankful for Mistletoe,

It is CHRISTMAS BREAK!!!!!

So excited to be kicking of my 5th CHRISTMAS BREAK! One of the reasons I love my job is I get the next two weeks off to celebrate Jesus, spend time with my family, enjoy Christmas, get things done around the house, hang out with friends and basically do whatever I want. We have lots planned with my family (the Nutcracker, baking, Jones/Heflin date) and then we leave Christmas day for Santa Fe with the Joneses and back just in time to ring in the new year and watch Baylor in their first BCS bowl. I am looking forward to all the fun, getting things done around the house, resting, but mostly spending time with these two guys!!!







So very thankful for time off,

MJ
