*Happy Holidays*

Here's the latest... everything from visiting Santa, to Christmas Tree hunting ( yes, for those of you in California, we do "hunt" for our tree and occasionally shoot it down) and our wonderful Thanksgiving trip to California.

London threw a snowball into her own eye... who knows!

Getting ready to go into Disneyland.

"It's a Small World"
One of the greatest attractions at Disneyland during the holidays!
It was also Maddy's favorite ride. She loved all the singing "babies".
London and Grandpa

London's absolute favorite part of the trip was Grandma & Grandpa's dog, Bailey.

Yep, the giant yellow robot is my husband. . . or for those who are familiar with the kids show, "Yo Gabba Gabba", he's Plex the Robot. Every time we turned around there were a line of little kids following the "robot" or some little boy would ask to have his picture taken with him. Halloween this year was SO much fun! London sported the peacock costume again... always a crowd pleaser. Madeline was a purple fish and I was Tinkerbell... thanks to my asking London what I should be.

Just in case anyone was wondering, Mathew made the entire costume Himself and won $100 in a costume contest!
He was pretty proud!

Well, we we had an awesome 4 days deer hunting together. (Sorry to any of you who might be bothered by the first two pictures!) We stayed in this little cabin for two days with our girls and it was great. Mathew got his 4 point on opening day... after I shot at it and simultaneously hit myself in the forehead with the scope when I fired the gun. Anyways, I told him to go after it and he shot it. If you look closely at my picture, you can see the goose egg on my head.

I shot my 3 point buck the second to last day. I was so excited! and as you can tell in the picture a little sleep deprived!

Mathew and the girls feeding the fish.

We went out on a little canoe the resort provided to feed the fish up close!

Mathew & I after hiking a mile or more uphill!... we didn't see anything!

Sitting on the dock...

The little "show-boaters"!

London started dancing... For all who know me, this day was monumental. Definitely a milestone when it comes to girls in my family. I somehow volunteered to be the teacher of "mommy & me". I dreaded it at first, but now have really begun to love teaching my daughter one of the things I love most.

A random picture I found on my camera's internal memory.

Oh Fancy Nancy! Our absolute favorite series of books! Our little library is so wonderful. They recently hosted a "Soiree", or party, in honor of the Fancy Nancy books. All the little girls who attended dressed up all fancy, had a tea party, made crowns, etc. It was SO much fun!

Fancy Nancy's little sister, or our little Madie, was dressed to look just like the little sister from the first book.

Madeline's 1st Birthday!
Madeline's Giant Cupcake Birthday Cake!
(The red ball is a cherry tomatoe... not a cherry sour ball!)

The Birthday Girl!

Big sister London always has to be where the action is!

Cadence and London trying to get to all the food!

Madie had to have her little cake far enough away in order to sing happy birthday before she destroyed it!
