It's begining to look a lot like Christmas....

As per our tradition, we always decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving.  It's a pain in the neck to decorate but I love it once it's done!

Thanksgiving was filled with family and lots of good food courtesy of Chef Matt!  Makes me hungry just thinking about it:)

Halloween Time!!

We had a great time for Halloween.  We had fun dressing up even though Matt was a party pooper and didn't dress up this year.  (Some kid did think though that Matt was Sam's grandpa.  bwahahaha  It gave us all a chuckle.)  We love Halloween!
I think there is a photo bomber!!  Kristina is Mrs. Capt. America!
 Wonder Woman!
 Construction Worker!
 Cutest darn ghost you will ever see!!

I can't believe how quickly the first day of school came.  The kids are growing fast and time is just flying by.  Yikes!!

Kristina first to go.  She is a Junior! 

 Riley was last to leave.  Oops got it out of order.  She is an 8th grader.

 Sam was second to go.  It was a rough start.  He is a homebody.  He is my big bad 5th grader.
 Phew!  Looks like it won't be so bad after all.

Girls Camp!

The girls were lucky enough to go the camp the morning after we got back from UT.  I just know that they were sooooo excited to get up at the crack of dawn to leave.  They survived and I think they had somewhat of a good time.  Here they are home along with all the dirt they could collect from camp.

We took a trip to Utah!!

So this past July we decided we needed to take a trip to UT to visit our favorite Boyack family!  Lesa and I have been besties ever since we were nannies many, many moons ago.  It also just so happens that her kids and our kids are all just about the same age.  I was the only one that has been to UT and that was way back when I was a teen.  Needless to say we were uber excited.  We had such a good time (even though Matt hurt his rumpus the first day there).  We love that family and hope that we didn't drive them crazy so we can come and visit again!!

On our way!
 I hate bridges!  This one scared the holy heck out of me!
 I'm thinking they were up to no good here.
 Just chilaxing
 Love these two!!  Aren't they cute?!
 Quite the crew!
 Ummmm....Let you decide what is happening here.....

 Poor decrepit Matt....

 Loved the views!
We love and miss you Boyacks!!

Sam turned 10!

It was Sam's birthday!!  He was so excited.  He got Legos and other fun things.  We sure do love you Sam.  Happy Birthday!!

Last Day Of School!

I've got some catching up to do.  May was the end of the school year.  Yeah my kids all passed.  Let summer begin!

Birthiversary getaway!

For Matt and I's birthday and anniversary we decided to go to one of our very favorite places to visit, Disneyland!  We waited until May because we didn't want to go at Spring Break time when it is uber busy.  We had a great time as always.  The crowds weren't too horrible and the weather was awesome!  If you wanna see more pics you really should be my FB friend:)

CA Adventure before it opened.  I so want to go back soon since they are finally opening everything up again.  Plus I am dying to see CarsLand.

Poor Matt.  He was by himself cuz I was still in bed.  Doesn't he look so lonely?!

Before I got soaked.  Note to self...when you have a poncho in your backpack, use it dummy!!

After and totally drenched.  Took all day to dry.

Small World!

Walk In Walt's Footstep Tour.  Highly recommend it. 

Inside Club 33!!!

Small World and our tour guide Omar.  He was great!

One of the original flowers in the Tiki Room

One of my very favorite rides.  I could go on this over and over.

Fun way to ride the train around Disneyland.

What?!  We are important people and need to take our texts and phone calls....

Riding in the front of the monorail.  Matt was happy!

Hidden Mickey!  Can you see it?

All made of Legos.  Isn't that incredible?!

Same with this one.

Love you Disneyland!  Until we meet again....
