Dentist time

Today A and I had appointments at our dentist. We have been so lucky to find a great dentist!! It is a practice run by two brothers!
Ready for a check up!
I had to leave at this point due to my appointment, but Ryan said she wouldn't open her mouth for x-rays...
They did see some cavities :(, apparently Ainsley inherited our bad teeth!
Overall A did great and loved the treasure chest at the end. They gave her a Baggie with floss and a tooth brush and she FILLED that bag up with toys....Ryan had to explain you only pick one!!

Driving home day 1!

Sunday morning we left my dad's house in Central IL and headed back home to TX. We had planned to take the southern route, but due to ice we had to change our plans! We loved seeing this familiar site!
Lunch break!
Arrived in Tulsa, OK at dinner time and we had a hard time finding a restraunt and a hotel...but Ains was enjoying seeing snow for the first time this season!
After a late dinner we checked into the hotel. Ains did not eat dinner because she was SO excited about swimming. She told everyone in the restraunt that she was NOT hungry!
Time to swim!
We were about to put A in bed around 10 pm and she said she was now SO hungry! We called down to the bistro and ordered a pizza! She ate three pieces!!!
And slept in until 8:15 am :)!

Fun on the farm

We spent the past few days at my dad's house. It was a fun, relaxing time. Friday morning A helped Papa Bob make cinnamon rolls!
Headed to the barn for fun!

Vicki came over just in time to open presents!

Saturday fun-sugar cookies!
A picked out these three colors!
Ryan and I took a drive!

Saturday night we surprised my dad with an ice cream cake to ring in the new year! Last year at this time he was recovering from his second open heart surgery...this year thankfully he is feeling stronger!
A enjoyed the cake too!
