a white christmas

we woke up on christmas morning to rain - lots of rain - and cold temps. 
by noon, the rain had turned to snow.  big snowflakes.  
the kids were excited - and so were we.  we were gonna have a white christmas.
while we were in arlington, the snow started to fall and started to stick.
but by the time we got to keller, there was lots of snow.
and pierce couldn't wait to get outside with will and hillary.
and by the time we were done opening our gifts, there was even more snow.
and colder temperatures.
so we ended up having an impromptu slumber party with cousins.
and when we made it home on the 26th, there was still snow on the ground.
so before we did anything else, we headed outside to play some more.
pure happiness.

santa's goodies

santa was very nice to pierce and stella this year...
he brought each one a new set of wheels.
they were both so surprised and equally excited.

Bar L Christmas

 one of our favorite christmas celebrations takes place in southwest ft. worth at the bar l ranch.

it's scenic.  it's remote.  it's full of food and fun.

justin thinks it's a lot like ol' fezzywig's party (from a christmas carol).
