    What began as a calm new years at home, ended in a hospital room for the Farris family.

    “The weather has been crazy, so we didn't make plans. She made plans,” said Father Thomas Farris.

    He was referring to his newborn daughter, who was born at 9:43 am. She was the first baby born at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. When Teresa Farris went into labor early in the morning, he was concerned about the drive from Duncanville to Mansfield.

    “With the ice on the roads, we saw freeways were being closed down. There were accidents we kept seeing pop up on the news, on my phone, and I just kept thinking ‘ah man’,” said Ferris.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    But it was an easy drive, and they soon found out they had the first new year baby at the hospital.

    “It was pretty like shocking, because I figured when we got here a lot of women probably would have already been in labor by now. Probably already had a new year baby,” said mom Teresa Farris.

    But this is not the first memorable birthday for the family.

    "He was born on Friday the 13th in 2011,” explained Thomas Farris.

    6-year-old brother Marcellino is excited about his new role in the house.

    “I like it when I get to be a brother,” said Marcellino.
