Almost One in Texas

On Saturday night, January 14, 2012, Wil, the kids, and I boarded a plane from JFK and flew to Austin. In Austin, we were picked up by his parents, and drove an hour to San Antonio. Texas was the first stop on our itinerary, we will be traveling to Florida next. We came to San Antonio to celebrate a year, a year in the life of our amazing daughter, Samara Olivia Fader-Van Luyn.

We came to celebrate this year with her Lola Anna:

Lolo Jon:

Her Tita Marygold:

Her pinsan:

Her other pinsan Daryl:

And of course, her parents and brother:

Happy early birthday, Samara! More to come on January 22nd.


  1. I can't believe she is a year! How special you are getting to spend it with family.

  2. I seriously can't believe it! Happy early bday little girl.

  3. Wow, has it really been a year already? Happy celebrating! (And enjoy the warmth. I'm already having withdrawls.)
