16: Addison's First Christmas | We were planning on going to Wichita for Christmas but we got caught in a record breaking snow storm in OKC. I was really bummed that Addie wouldn't be with more family on Christmas but I really enjoyed celebrating with just us.
17: Since we were snowed in unexpectedly, we didn't have any groceries in the house. The Pitts and the Ashs invited us over for Christmas dinner. The roads were cleared enough to get there but we did get stuck in our driveway. We had a blast and Addie got to wear her pretty Christmas dress.
18: To Grandmother's House We Go | We braved the snow and headed to Kansas on the 26th so we could celebrate Christmas and Addie's birthday. Grammie invited Terry and Brenda and Aunt Barb on the sly and it was such a good surprise!
24: December 26, 2009
29: Birthday Girl! | We had a party for Addie in OKC on New Year's Eve. I made hamburgers, guacamole and brown bread ice cream.
31: Wishing you everything happy for your birthday! | Finger in the nose... | Finger in the mouth.... | Finger in the ear...
35: Welcome 2010 | After Addie's party, Nikki, Kevin, Lou and my Dad stayed to celebrate New Year's. I made cheese and meat fondue with a ton of dippers! We played some games and had a few delicious drinks.
36: Addie's First plane ride
37: Florida Trip | I found some really cheap tickets to Florida and a fantastic deal on a Bahama cruise, unfortunately, the cruise company kept changing the deal and expecting us to pay more. Aaron was going to stay in the same cabin as my parents and they kept trying to charge us for him. We would spend hours on the phone talking to managers to work it out, they would eventually say we didn't owe and then someone would call us a few days later to tell us we owed them money for Aaron.....again and again and again. The third time it happened, we just canceled and I booked us a condo in Orlando for that time. Matt and I went early to visit Gigi in Melbourne. | January, 2010
38: We had a very relaxing time at Gigi's house. We took some walks, played some games and ate a ton of delicious food. We bought fresh squeezed orange juice and Gigi even took us to the club one night for a nice dinner.
40: Our condo had lots of great amenities like a pool, hot tub, game room, basketball and tennis courts and a mini theater. Unfortunately, it was unseasonably cold to use most of them. We spent a lot of time playing rummy, hanging out and making the most of it.
41: The Franklin's rental car | Relaxing at the condo
42: We found a miniature golf course and bought 2 rounds. However, by the time we finished the first round we were frozen solid and decided to save the second game for another day. I'm pretty sure I won by the way.
44: Gators at Congo Gulf
45: Skee Ball Championship | We went to eat at Cracker Barrel Where Matt tried on an ear flapping hat. Later that day we went to an arcade.
46: We drove out to the beach for the day. Matt didn't come because he was sick but he wanted to pose with the donkey we got from the arcade before we left. Can you believe we had to wear coats in Florida??
