I worked during the day on NYE and PJ was sick so her and I had a low key night while Chris and the big girls went and celebrated with friends.
Sick Polly still looking cute as ever!

Lookin' good at 39!

Chris turned 39 and we got to have a night out. We went out to Fort Worth for dinner at Thirteen Pies.  The food was delicious and we had a good time!

First family selfie = fail!

Christmas 2015

We had a wonderful Christmas Day!  My girls slept in until 7:30 so Chris made it home with plenty of time before they woke up to see their Santa gifts. Emma was first up and then she woke Ryan and Polly was up by 7:45.  The girls were thrilled that Santa got them exactly what they asked for! Shokins for Ryan, Barbie house for Emma and an activity cube and push toy for PJ.  Mamaw, Pa and Aunt Krishia came over and spent the morning with us and we opened up all of our gifts together.  It took us 3 hours, with a couple breaks during (Polly also caught a nap)..  The girls got so much good stuff and were very gracious.  We took a ton of pictures!

We surprised the big girls with a trip to Disney Land end of February.

Banana Bread!
The girls helped Chris pass out presents.

Mamaw fed PJ before we started opening.

Ryan was 'cracking' her knuckles before she opened each gift

New playing cards for Mamaw

Emma and Ryan took turns taking some pictures of us!

Emma LOVED her Nefera costume

Polly can now pull up to stand in her crib!

Papa and Aunt Bethany came over and spent some time with us Christmas afternoon.

Winding down after a great day!
