Thanksgiving 2010

We had Thanksgiving at our house again. Matt loves to make the dinner and does such a fabulous job! It was pretty low key this year since we didn't have as many people and we just kinda chilled and ate. It was such a great weekend minus the fact that I got a flipping cold. We also put up the Christmas decorations and I'm relieved to have that out of the way. Now I just have got to get the Christmas shopping done and we can rest easy the rest of the Christmas holiday. I hope everyone else had a fabulous Turkey Day:)

Synergy Chicks Disneyland Adventure!

A week and a half ago I got to take an adventure with the work girls (except for Mandi, Ashley, Laurie, and Lisa) to Disneyland! We spent 3 fun filled days there and I had such a good time. These women are AWESOME and I love them and I'm glad to have the opportunity to work with them everyday. We laughed and laughed and they were even kind enough to put up with my happy tears (and guilt tears) at being at Disneyland for the first time at Christmas time. It is magical and I highly recommend going there to feel the Christmas spirit! Thanks gals for the fun time. I love ya all! Can't wait to do it again!!!

Poor Gail didn't know what she was getting into on this ride. She just held on for dear life:)

Julie was obsessed about not getting wet!

I loved Small World with all it's Christmas lights!

The castle was just beautiful at night!

Update on Sam's hand

Here is an update on Sam. We are officially done at the Burn Center!! Can I hear a Woot, Woot!!! He is doing great. We just have to make sure that the new skin gets lots of lotion and keep it stretched out. He is doing great with taking care of it!

Evening in Excellence

The Young Women had their Evening in Excellence the other night. They got the girls to get all gussied up. They did their hair and make up and put on fancy dresses. It was a great night. On a side note: Kristina, quit growing up so darn fast dang it!!

Halloween 2010

Since this year Halloween is on a Sunday we went to our ward's Trunk (table) or Treat last night on Saturday. They did it down at the park by our house. There was such a great turn out and the decorations were fabulous. The kids had a great time and so did we!

Holly -Gangsta, Kristina - Joker, Sam - Dracula, and Riley - Hula Girl
These two were ready for business
Costumes - check, pumpkin buckets - check, let's get going already!!
Me manning the table. Matt didn't want his picture taken this year:(
Of course it's not Halloween unless I have my Mickey pumpkin
Kristina drew this one herself and also carved it herself. Great job!!!
Riley's own creation. She did this one by herself too!! Good job!
This one is Sam's (even though I drew it and carved it). I guess giving it the thumbs up makes it his, right?!
It was a fun day!!

Eeck! Holy Scorpion Batman!!

Check out this creature! It was wanting to make a home in the garage. Too bad for him that Matthew B. found him. Now he's dead! My hero Matt.....

Disneyland Baby!!

WARNING: PICTURE OVERLOAD (Like that is a surprise)
Thanks to my awesome bosses anniversary gift, my wonderful husband and hard work, and the give a day get a day, we were able to spend the Fall Break week at my families favorite place, Disneyland!! (along with the rest of the world I should add) We headed up through San Diego so we could make a pit stop in Oceanside for some greasy favorite food and a quick stop at the beach. After that Disneyland or bust to meet up with our good friends the Boyack family. We had a great time. It was warmer than I thought it would be and like I said everybody else had the same idea but it was worth it. I love Disneyland!!! (so much so that I'm headed there again in a couple of weeks with my awesome coworkers!) Here are some highlight of our trip. If you would like to see more pics head on over to my Facebook page.
This is how we told Riley and Sam we were going
You want some yummy greasy food? This is the place to go!
I miss our summers going here:(
The beach was beautiful and the water wasn't too cold. My hair of course was a huge fro thanks to the humidity!
1st day there and we are excited!
These kiddos are crazy
Good looking bunch if I do say so myself
This is the only way to keep these kids in check
The castle
World of Color. I highly recommend it. We saw it twice.
Everyone needs to see Mater and Lightning!
CA Adventure baby!
Train Station
I love Disneyland at Halloween time

We love this Mouse!!
If you look closely at the kid in the white hat in the back. He was a spitting image of my little brother Kody. Holy twin Batman!
This is what long lines do....Make you crazy!:)
Paradise Pier
Oh no!!! A spiderweb on the castle!!
Last picture of the World of Color
I forgot to add that not only did we see lots of people we knew we also saw some famous folks. We saw Shawn Bradley and that guy is tall I tell ya! We also were able to sit behind Mitchell from Modern Family at the fireworks show. Kristina thought that was a major highlight. What a fun time we had and I loved spending it with my sweet family.
