Happy New Year 2009

So, for christmas my oldest sister took my parents on a cruise. Fun City!
But we planned a sneaky suprise visit for their return!!! One of my older sisters, Laura, flew down from Utah. Carson, Madi & I drove to Oklahoma. We all got to Perry the day my parents were supposed to get home. And they didn't know we were coming! As soon as they got home we all showed up one by one. It was a fabulous suprise. (I think my mom almost wet her pants from the excitement. Don't worry that I've found out it runs in the family.) Anyway, we all stayed for about a week & brought in the new year together.
We went bowling as a family. It was super fun! I can't remember the last time we did that. I also don't know why we haven't done it more often!
We cooked a lot of food. I seriously think I gained 10lbs in that 1 week! It was probably all from "Emily's fabulous oreo balls sent straight from heaven to your mouth dipped in chocolate"! We ate a ton of those!
We played the Wii a ton! Josie bought a fun new game, Raving Rabbid Rabbits party (I think) We laughed so much! ( I should have lost all 10 lbs I gained...)
We went to the public park. I know it has the "Lion's Park" because there is a lion statue in the park. I grew up playing here. It was fun to have Madi play here too.
Emily ran and tried to jump into a flying position on the swing. It looked so funny. I tried to do it too. I just hurt myself!
It was fun to watch everyone play with Madi. I'm glad she's not super shy. She warmed up to everyone pretty quickly & now I have picture to remind her who everyone is.
This picture is my favorite! Madi & Uncle Ox
