“The Other Texas Tea”

One of the things we did as a family over Christmas was to go bowling. We like hanging out as a family, but for the first time we actually did stuff as a family. Two trips to the movies, bowling, eating out a couple times, drinking and playing Wii. Like whoa! We must be entering a new era in the development of our family. What’s going to happen when the kids start bringing home their kids.
That’s too far in the future to imagine (though, not really).
Also, I think Jay really won the game.

“Family Photo, Part 1”

Inevitably, a family vacation always leads to a family photo. Everything actually went pretty smoothly.
The funniest part of the evening was when my mom got drunk on margaritas. We were all pretty drunk, but listening to her slurred speech and jump from topic to topic was classic.
The other funny part was the previous day when my brother was driving us from Portland to Corvallis. In the middle of the night the car ran out of gas on I-5. I guess it was a little scary, especially the part when some random tow truck pulled up next to us and asked if we needed “help”. Murder. Thank goodness my brother called his roadside assistance and someone was already on the way.
