...with envy. There is just a little part of me that wants to live Bryce's life: Palm trees last week...famous Rockefeller trees this week. Bah humbug!

The Happiest Place on Earth...Again

I honestly can't believe I'm doing another Disneyland post. But yes, we did it...AGAIN! Grammy and Paca came and we met our sweet Arizona cousins for a few days of pure Disney bliss. There is nothing on earth like Disneyland in December. If you want an idea of how the kids felt, take a look at Max in the picture with Mickey. We're laughing at that still! (He had just conquered California Screamin' and was so proud!) What a way to kick off December. Thanks Mickey!

Thanksgiving recap

We didn't go over any rivers...or through any woods for that matter. But we did drive through plenty of cactus fields to Grammy and Paca's. It's always a treat to be in a place where you can spend half of Thanksgiving day swimming - and the other half eating. Now were back to temperatures in the teens - brrrr! but loving our December days singing in choir concerts, preparing for our annual neighborhood Nativity program, lunching and exchanging gifts with friends, cozying up by the fireplace, and addressing Christmas cards. I love the holidays!
