Merry Christmas!


Christmas was an absolute blast/success at our house! I can't wait to get pictures up and all the deets to a fabulous holiday!

Most of all... I just want to remember the reason for the season.


A BABY CHANGES
EVERYTHING.
“There is no better time than now, this very Christmas season, for all of us to rededicate ourselves to the principles taught by Jesus the Christ.”
—President Thomas S. Monson

Happy Holidays!

The Edwards gave us an advent calendar and we got a SQUIRREL on the fourth day!
Little girl, don't touch the squirrel's nuts!
For the Pegasus ward Christmas party I helped my dad enter a piece into the Gingerbread contest. It was Santa's Island! His home the other 364 days out of the year!

Minute to win it!

Jancy & Ivy played this fun game , from minute to win it. It is so fun & notice gypsy running back and forth trying to get tissues. HILAR!

Gypsy

Our family just got a cute little dog and her name is Gypsy. She is the devil dog but we love her anyway. She is always cracking us up.

She has the cutest face!

She LOVES her sweater!
AND she loves pirate booty (the cheese puff snack!)

Gypsy can play the piano & she can climb out of her kennel. She has so many talents I just can't believe it!

Halloween weekend I went to Thatnasty to visit my dear friend Jenny. while there we carved this super cute pumpkin!
We went to their Trunk or Treat and Jenny & I were Witches and Brighty was a cute little fairy!
Isn't she a DOLL?
I made this scrumptious caramel apple that my dad is devouring.
I also made these yummy apples that I scooped out the centers of and added nuts, cinnamon, oats and sugar to with some butter. It was delicious. I also added a scoop of Ice Cream and had the best desert of the month.
While I was watching the The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown I decided to carve this pumpkin. I was kind of impressed because I usually totally ruin my pumps and make them SUPER ugly. This one make momma proud. :)

catch up time!

In October I wanted so badly to go to DISNEYLAND. A friend of mine had just gone and had an EXTRA one day park hopper pass and offered it to anyone who wanted! I jumped on that opportunity! Allie and I were planning on going on a 24 hour disney trip. The moment I picked up the ticket my friends called and invited me to go to Disneyland with them and so Allie & I decided that would be a better trip.

Tiff, Mauri, Cristina & Me
It was Halloweentime @ DLAND! Dias de las muertos!
Allie & I! of course it is tradition to get a picture on the tram!
World of Color was AWESOME! I might have got a little teary eyed... just sayin.
The guy next to Allie has the best roller coaster face!
The girls decided to ride Grizzly rapids......
...and they got soaked!
Happy day of the dead!
The new Silly Symphony Swings.. I might have got a little sick to my stomach! :)
THE BEST man catching Beignets EVER!

When we first got into Disneyland they had the Disney Main Street Band and Alice and the Mad Hatter dancing all around. They choose Cristina to dance and sing with them!
We had a BLAST and I am so grateful to the Robinsons for sharing their ticket with me and letting me go the the HAPPIEST place on earth! It was a truly terrif time!
