Breaking Dawn part 1

One of my friend's sister rented out a movie theater for an early screening of Breaking Dawn. We had so much fun. Let me tell you she went all out for the night. We took our fun neighbor and friend Ronda along with Mandi and Amy. We had a total blast! Thanks for the fun ladies. Can't wait till next year for the next one!!!


Yay for Halloween!! We had a ward trunk(table)-or-treat before Halloween. Then we did some good old fashion trick-or-treating for Halloween. The kids had a blast! They also had some fun with their friends during the fun filled Halloween weekend.

Oct. break

For October break we didn't do a whole lot. Since I had taken some time off for fieldtrips and Disney trips I didn't take too much time from work for this break. Had to save it for Christmas baby. I did take one day and the kids and I went to the AZ Southwest Museum (at least that's what I think they call it now days). They had space stuff as their traveling exhibit and Sam loved it. We had a great time.

Taiming of the wild hair beast!

This hair beast of Riley's is what we have to deal with almost every morning. The picture doesn't even do it justice. Thank heavens for hair detangler! It's a good thing she is so darn cute and can pull it off:)

1st day of school!

We didn't do too much during the summer. The kids did get to spend some time in Tucson with Grandma and Grandpa. Other than that it was just too darn hot to do too much. Before we knew it school was already upon us. I still can't believe I have a kid in each school. Man, I'm getting old.

Kristina is up and adam at 5am to start her school. Doesn't she look excited?!

Sam was the next one out the door.
Last but not least our dear Riley! Off to Middle School.....
They have had a good year so far. Phew!

Hawaiian Day at work

Every year around June 25th we have Hawaiian Day at work to mark the half way point till Christmas. We all dress up, have loads of yummy food for lunch, and have a great time! I love my office. We know how to have some fun!!

U2 in Anaheim June 2011!!!!

As I said in the previous post Matt and I had tickets to U2 in Anaheim. For those who know me well you know I have had an obsession with U2 since I was 14. That is a long obsessions I tell ya!! We had those tickets for quite some time since Bono's injury the previous year. I can't tell you how excited I was to finally be putting them to use. We rested all day because you know we did Disney the 2 days before. We are old and need our rest ya know. We got to the stadium early and waited in line for a few hours. Once we got in we noticed that they were letting anyone into the inner circle. Even though I have claustrophobia big time (thanks older brothers for the many years of torture for that phobia!) I decided we should try it. Wouldn't you know we were able to be right by the stage!! I have never been so excited. (ok slight exagration on that one) I was pretty darn excited!! We were able to be on The Edge's side and it was wonderful! Thanks to Debbie and Mara (who we met there) we had a great time. Also thanks to Debbie for letting me use her pictures since we forgot our camera. I have been completely spoiled by that and must from now on always be by the stage! Did you hear that Matt?! ha ha It was an incredible night that I won't soon forget!
Lenny Kravitz opened and here he comes!

This is to show you all how close we really were!
Look Ma! I'm right by the stage!

I love you Bono!!!!

I can almost pinch his hiney:)

Debbie, Mara, and me!!!

Please don't be over! I don't want it to end:(

Disney Trip With The Hubby!

*DISCLAIMER* Please don't have a heart attack since I am finally updating the blog! I figured I have a week off work so I better do something productive:)

Back in June Matt and I were still the proud owner of our Anaheim U2 tickets from the year prior. With it being in Anaheim how can we not plan a trip to one of our favorite places on the planet?! We enjoyed 2 days at the happiest place on earth and then enjoyed an evening with my beloved U2. (That is a post all it's own) Granted I did hurt my foot while there and to this day it is still bothering me but it was all worth it I tell ya. It's always a blast to go with Matt to Disneyland and I hope we have many more trips in our future:)

On our way!

Waited 2 hours for this ride. I can't wait for the newness to be done so we don't have to wait so long next time. Totally worth it though!

Paddle away dear!
The new Little Mermaid ride. I was so excited for this one!
We just missed the opening of this ride:(

At least Corn Dog Castle was finally reopened!

Look! Matt finally made a face on a ride!!
