Christmas in Texas

We were able to spend Christmas in Texas this year so Layne could meet her Texan family! Needless to say she was a hit. She did great on the plane there and back. I fed her on the way there and she slept the whole time on the way back. It was so great to see everyone in Dallas. And as a surprise for my parents we got all the grand kids together to take photos at JC penny to give to them for Xmas. (Sample pics below). We went to our friend Cortney's house to meet all the kiddos we've been seeing pics of on Facebook for years, it was a nice little get together. Thanks again Cort!
And we spent time with the Thomas' playing monopoly, clue and Apples to Apples. All of which my 12 year old beautiful niece Olivia was a pro!
We spent the night at Auntie Holly's house.
It must go down in the record saying this is the first time I've been to Dallas and not gone to the bars. My how times have changed. Layne did go to her first restaurants though. First one being her fathers Texas favorite: Whataburger! And the second a sit down restaurant good ole Ozonas.

Thanks for having us Nana and grandpa! Here are some pics I took from my phone. There are a million more taken with the good camera, but those are still on said camera.

Sarah and I went through this pregnancy together via email since week 8.  She lives in Portland and our babies were born 9 days apart.  So glad to finally meet Ike!  <3
