New Year, New Pictures

Here are the pictures that my brother took of our family when we were down in Arizona visiting for Thanksgiving.  It was windy and a little chilly and we did it in 15 minutes because the sun was going down.  They turned out great!  My brother is a professional photographer and does an incredible job capturing Arizona sunsets.  You can find him at www.saguaropictures.com  (Seriously, they're amazing!)

Christmas at Disneyland!

We surprised the kids and took them to Disneyland over Christmas Break.  It was hard to get everything packed and ready without telling them.  It had also been 10 years since we had been there so they weren't as excited as we hoped when we told them.  K said she'd rather go see Grandpa.  Once they got there though, they had a BLAST!  N's favorite ride was California Screamin' (Yes, that's my 7 year old for ya!  The day after Christmas we drove to L.A.  It took twice a long as we anticipated because of traffic and road construction).  There we went shopping at the American Girl Store while the big boys saw The Hobbit.  Now K tells me every day that we should get in the car and drive to Disneyland again.  :)
