More snow

Here are a few photos from the morning after we had all that snow. It was so much that it bent our tree. Cassie thought someone came and cut it like that in the middle of the night.

Christmas Wrapup

Have you ever partied so hard you just collapsed in a heap of tired bones? Jessie has! One of our thousand trips to Walmart

Cookies for Santa and a carrot for Rudolf. After we put out the cookies we sat and talked about Christmas and why we have Christmas. It was nice to talk to Cassie and Jessie about Jesus and the Nativity Story amd was a perfect end to the night.

Santa Came!

Thanks to my mom and dad and Jeff most of those were for me!

Santa worte a letter to the kids reminding them to be good to their mom and dad.

walkie talkies from Grandpa and Grandma! They are still working on using them correctly

Ryan LOVES this car thanks grandpa and grandma!
Having breakfast. This was a really crazy month but it was so much fun to hang out with family and play in the snow and remember our Savior. We we were also able to talk to Glenn (Jeffs brother) who is on a mission for the church in Oklahoma. He will be home next year! It was reall neat to hear him and how much he has grown up in the last year. And dinner at Moms was really really good. Roger and Hillary really did a good job pulling that one together! I hope everyone had a really good Christmas and I hope you are all ready to start a good 2009!

I need a vacation!

We just got back yesterday from our week of fun at Disneyland and I am EXHAUSTED!
One of our first stops was to the princess pavillion so we could meet some princesses. The wait wasnt too long and we left Jeff and Crystal in line while we went and listend to a story by Cinderella. Jessie also used the time to decorate her daddy.

This was so cute when Jessie gave Sleeping Beauty a big old hug first thing.

Then we made our way over to California Adventures to watch the HighSchool Musical 3 parade. The girls really enjoyed that.

The start of Tuesday we went on Dumbo and it was just a bit chilly up in the air.

Then the girls and I did a little shopping while Jeff and Crystal went on the Indiana Jones ride. The girls got necklaces and rings. They had 5 rings a piece and I think they are all lost already. But at least they still have the necklaces.

This would be the 7 dollar lunch on Tuesday. 4 very tiny nuggets in a really big box. Jessie also got picked to do the Jedi training and made it through about 1 minute of it before she started crying! Oh well Ryan will enjoy that one in a few years.

Jessie had had it by this time but she pulled through once she got a taste of Big Thunder Mountain.

Day three. Crystal decided to take it easy back at the hotel so it was just the four of us that day. It was nice to spend some time with just the girls.

we got lots of comments on our orange outfits that day it was funny. We just had to take a picture because it seemed so weird to see hardly any people walking around that morning.

waiting in line at big thunder mountain......AGAIN! We went on that thing at least 20 times no kidding!

We also got to ride on a horse drawn carriage with the Dapper Dans. They sang a few numbers on our way up mainstreet. The funny thing is they got off when we did but when we came back to Disneyland a few hours later they were back and we rode with them again!

Jeff ran back to the hotel to check on Crystal and get some stuff we forgot so the girls and I were on our own for a while. We went to A bugs life show. Did the bumper cars and the swinging ride then it was time to meet up with Jeff again.

Jess wasnt big enough to go on the rafting ride so she and I waited while Jeff and Cassie went on it. We ate most of the cotton candy while we were waiting too.

Here is Cassie with what was left of the Cotton Candy.

After all that cotton candy I was ready for some salt so we got a turkey leg. Oh it was sooooo yummy and it fed all four of us!

After three days we were beat. We went back to the hotel for a rest then went to Costco for dinner. We did manage to drag ourselves back to Disneyland one more time that night for five more rides on Big Thunder Mountain and then we headed on back for the last time. We got out of there pretty early the next morning and we were home by 1:30 that afternoon. We had a whole lot of fun but I am ready for a few days of lounging and lazyness.
