2014 Highlights

2014 was a fabulous year for the Slaughters. Thought I'd share some of our highlights...

January:
Half of the girls in my family (we were missing 6) traveled to Houston, Texas, to participate in Beth Moore's Siesta Sisters conference AND do a little shopping.  

My Mizzou-cheering family came to Dallas to watch Missouri in the Cotton Bowl.  We love having family in town!


February:
We watched the Super Bowl with our old small group from church at the Smith's house.

Marla helped Ebby Lee make a fabulous box for her Valentine Party!

And we all celebrated Valentine's Day in our red and hearts.


March:
We made a big trip to the Dallas Zoo with lots of our friends.

Nixon and Coach Tab had their very first tee-ball game of the season.



April:

Ebby Lee turned FIVE and we partied down at her painting party.

Our handsome Nix turned FOUR and we celebrated with friends at Main Event.

We celebrated that Jesus is Risen!


May:
We took an amazing trip to Disney World with my family.

Ebby Lee graduated from preschool!



June:
I tagged along on Tab's business trip to Boston and we experienced our first Red Sox game.

Toward the end of June, we loaded up for family vacation #2 with Tab's family to San Antonio.  This is also the trip I discovered Ebby Lee had HEAD LICE!!  EEK!!  I shared all about it!  Probably TMI...hahahaha!



July:
We had a blast celebrating our freedom on July 4th with friends, our town's parade, and fireworks.

The kiddos and I loaded up for a Missouri road trip to visit family and friends.  *I realize my New Year's Resolution should be to NOT wear my hats so low!!!  hahahahaha!

On this business trip the entire crew tagged along to Austin.  At breakfast this morning, Ebby Lee pointed out that we were the loudest table in the entire restaurant.  Thanks for reminding us!!



August:
We soaked up all kinds of summer fun before school started.

EEK!!!  Ebby Lee started kindergarten in August.  Major milestone!



September:
These crazies BOTH started preschool in September.

Shay and I took a girls-only trip to Nashville, Tennessee, for the DotMom Conference.



October:
Tab's football crew got the Texas/University of Oklahoma football game, so we had a crazy fun weekend with dinner, the football game, AND the fair!

Jake the Pirate, Donatello the Turtle, Belle the Princess, and I trick-or-treated with friends.


November:
We celebrated this big guy turning 2 and Thanksgiving with lots of guests on the same day this year.

We hosted a group of sixth grade girls for Disciple Now at our church.



December:
We hit up all our usual Christmas traditions and even made some new ones like the Polar Express.  Well...scratch that, Tab is never going back.  hahahaha!!

The Slaughters ended 2014 with a bang by having a fabulous Christmas!  We hope 2014 was good to you as well!

Bring it 2015!!!
