Chris' 37th birthday weekend!

We celebrated Chris' 37th birthday at the Hackbart's lakehouse.  It was so much fun!  Tharp family, Ennis family, Hackbart family and us. There were 8 kids and 8 adults!  Crazy, but fun!

Drunk Ariel

Emma passed out at 5:30 p.m. with her face buried in the couch.
It was so hard to wake her up for dinner.
She was a sweaty mess when I woke her up.
She looked drunk.

Christmas with the Cox family!

Since Chris and I both worked Christmas day we had to wait to get together with the Cox side until the 26th. We went to their new house in Dallas and had a great day!  We ate, drank, opened gifts and bowled (yes, they have a bowling alley in their house!).  Girls had a blast!

Grandpa caught a nap before lunch.

Lots of giggling!

Emma liked bowling.

Ryan gave it a shot.
She thought it was a little too loud,
and preferred sitting with her Pa.

Chris is a serious bowler.
Aunt Rocks made the girls a fort on the back patio.
Christmas lights and all!
Aunt Rocks sure does love Ryan!
