Cars Land is SO.MUCH.FUN!

And so darn cute.  The lines were crazy for Radiator Springs Racers but we were able to ride it a few times (so fun!)  Cute Max and Wendy went into the park at 7:00 one morning and waited to get fast passes for more than an hour and when they could only get two (because the rest of us were sleeping and not in the park), THEY GAVE THEIR PASSES to Carter and Marty.  Love that family!  Max and Addison have resigned themselves that we will be taking pictures for their wedding video until...well, they get married (or don't).  ;)

All ready for Christmas!

okay, that is a lie.  Not even a little bit ready.  
But seeing this picture of Carter puts a smile on my face so I thought I'd share (painted by his cute sister).

We are so excited for our first Christmas in California!  We're kicking it off by a trip to Disneyland!


I haven't been shooting for years.  I forgot how much I love it!  My kids loved it too!  We were lined up for a picture and I snapped this one.  I am lucky to have all of these amazing people in my life.
 Uncle Greg giving us a safety lesson.  I love my brothers!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

So, so much to be thankful for!  I love Thanksgiving because you get to be with people you love and not have to worry about anything but eating, which we love to do, and being grateful!

We are so glad Marty's family came down to spend Thanksgiving with us!
We missed Jordan, the Louisiana Stewart's and my dad, but it was so, so fun to have everyone else together.
We had 3 turkeys!
 Love this cute Cole.  I was outside watching the turkey in the deep fryer and he asked me about every minute how much longer until it's done.  Then he ate an entire leg!

 I love this picture of the view from their back deck.  I took a bunch of pictures of all the people, but not with my camera.

Fun in the Sun

The kids and I headed to Vegas a couple of days before Thanksgiving.  My mom picked us up and we went right to Ethel M. to see the lights.  I love this picture!  I have such a cute mom!  And kids.  :)

 The kids just love being at my mom's and playing with her little closet of toys, and Maggie.

 We headed to town center to see Santa (picture to be inserted here).  He was AWESOME!  And the kids rode the train.

 Marty joined us on Tuesday night, and we headed up to St. George on Wednesday.  We got to swim at Marty's parents pool, and the kids all tried to gang up on Marty.  He always wins.
 Love just hanging out with family!  My brother Jeff and sister-in-law Lesa hosted us all (both of their families, Marty's family, and a few others).  I think there was 35 of us!

 I love this picture of Carter!  He played so hard the whole week

 The Jones' drove down from West Jordan and Addison and Katie were so excited to be back together again for a couple of days!!
 Love this of Carter and Brielle...they said a quick hello and started running and climbing (we met up to do a little hiking on the Dixie hill).

 Marty's niece Tyler is always fun!  We love having her around!

  The day after Thanksgiving we headed to the St. George temple to see the lights.

 The girls were able to have a sleepover, and of course put a little show on for us.

 On Saturday we went out to Tuachan to see the live Nativity and Santa.  And this picture makes me laugh. 

 Saying Good-bye to the Jones'.  I think Brie does NOT want Carter's kiss!  :)
 Group hug!
