We had a free trip to Breckenridge last 2 weekends ago for listening to a time share presentation, and it included 4 free tickets to tube at the Frisco hill. It was a blast! The kids loved it and were laughing so hard!
I cannot believe how big they are getting, it makes me sad. Elle will hate me for saying this someday, but the other day she told me her armpits were stinky after a soccer game. We had to go get her deodorant and it made me sad! I know, I am a dork!
We took the kids to Disneyland the 1st week of December as an early part of their Christmas. We were told by everyone that it was a great tiem to go with no lines, etc... Far from the truth! Thursday and Friday weren't horrible but were definitely busy, but Saturday was ridiculous, you could not even walk. It was fun to see all the lights though and the kids had a blast. They both loved Tower of Terror and Thunder Mountain. Here are some pictures, more to come later. The extra couple of kids you see are the kids of a friend of ours that lives in San Diego who met us for a day.
Waiting for the parade, eating some goodies.
Reese LOVED Goofy!
The ferris wheel of death. The kids did not like this ferris wheel because the cars swing as it goes around and it is a really weird sensation. Yet they loved Tower of Terror, go figure!
The new Cars Land is so cool, it is JUST like the movie, but it is the busiest place in the park right now since it is so new.
Poor Reese, by the last night she was just done. She had waited all week to see the fireworks but she was so tired she couldn't even stay awake for them on Saturday night. Here eyes are all red and bloodshot. We were up every morning by 6 or 6:30 and didn't go to bed until 10 or 11 every night. LONG days!
Elle was baptized last night on October 13, 2012. She was so excited to get baptized and was so sweet. She was super excited to wear her pretty dress and have both of her grandparent sets here. Everything went well and the water was warm, luckily. Reese was feeling a little underappreciated, so she was a little crazy with all of the presents and cake and excitement surrounding Elle. Reese needs attention more than Elle, apparently!
The other little girl is Zoie, she was also baptized last night.

I actually halfway like this picture of me so I figured it was ok to post it.
Nana cross stitched this with the date and her name and a little saying on it
Grandma had this made for her to put a picture of her baptism day on the clip. Both of these were so cute!
We gave her a journal, new scriptures and a mini hymn book with her name engraved on them. She was really excited about that!
I cannot believe summer is over! It is ridiculous! And what is even more ridiculous is that Reese is in Kindergarten. It was all I could do to not start crying when Ryan and I dropped her off this morning. And Miss Elle is in 3rd grade which is crazy also! Poor Elle kind of got thrown to the wolves this morning because she goes to a different side of the school now to go in and we wanted to watch Reese go in. But Linda took her in for us, so at least she was not completely on her own. She didn't seem to care though.
Reese also started skiing by herself this year without the harness. One day we were up there and Ryan had her in the harness and she said next time down I am going to do it all by myself and, lo and behold, she did it the very next time all by herself! So we went up quite a bit this year since all four of us can go together now. I had a little fight with a snowboarder on time, but other than that all went well. It was not really a fight, but a snow boarder plowed into me going full speed and twisted me all up and I have had a sore knee off and on since then.
