Christmas Surprise

On December 5, Christmas came early to our house. We went downstairs to read scriptures and under the tree there were presents for the kids! We let them open them and inside they each found a Color Wonder book, a bag of treats, and a Disney gift card! We took them to Disneyland for Christmas! (It was also for my birthday.) We left on Monday and we were going to go to the park on Tues, Wed,and Thurs, but Monday night poor Connor woke up puking. Not a fun way to start vacation. While one of us took care of him, the other one took the other kids to Downtown Disney and swimming. Our good friends Brian and Bekah South joined us so B helped give Connor a blessing and by Wednesday morning he was as good as new! So we went to Disneyland Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday! Holy cow though! Friday was so busy! I have honestly never seen so many people in all of my life. But we got to do all the rides, see the shows, and the characters we wanted to see in our time there. So we spent most of Friday afternoon shopping. And the girls got to do the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique! Which was a little expensive but so worth it! They really make your girls feel like princesses. It was really a priceless experience as a mom to watch your daughters glow like that and see themselves as a Princess. We got to ride Pirates and do the Tiki Room which Owen loved! He has been watching those on Youtube so much so it was fun to see him enjoy it for real! The only disappointing thing was that Connor was like a millimeter too short to ride Indiana Jones. Poor boy was heartbroken and they should have just let him ride. Oh well, we'll just have to go again! :) It was awesome and I loved being there at Christmas. Even more magical than usual!

Christmas Time

After 5 years of living here in Spanish Fork, we finally made it to the Light Parade! We had so much fun! Drinking hot chocolate and snuggling in blankets. It was a great time. Thanks for joining us Hupps! It was a great way to kick off the season!

The Saturday after Thanksgiving we put up the tree. The kids have so much fun putting it together and decorating. They take after their mom. The tree was always my favorite part as a kid too. I was my Dad's little helper setting up the tree and putting lights on. Oh, I miss those days. But I love watching my kids enjoy it so much. It makes this season so magical!
