OK, I have been wanting to do this for quite some time... and wanting to post about Thanksgiving... and the boys birthdays... and take down my Christmas tree. Oh wait, I did just do that one the other night! YEAH!

Thanks everyone for a great Christmas! Scott, Shaliece, Steven, Becca... we love the FHE and activity stuff and love the dinner/movie supper club gift certificate! Thank you!

Anne... we loved being with you on Christmas - and being with Abby!

And Nema and Hepa... thanks for such a fun time!

The highlight this year was definitely the bikes that Santa brought. We should have stopped there, but instead we had 6 more hours of gift opening that day. OK, it was a lot and maybe I shouldn't have wrapped up belts, underwear and socks, but I really didn't think we were going to have that much. Boy did Santa prove me wrong!

We just got home from a great trip to Disney World with Nema and Hepa. We spent 4 days roaming all the different parks. The kids LOVED the characters and even some of the rides. Here are Scott and I before we took the plunge on Everest in Animal Kingdom. There is Everest in its glory and it seems Nema and Scott can hardly wait to go on the ride!!

Garrett loves that one of the characters has the same hair do as himself.

We are all ready to have some serious fun in the Magic Kingdom.

Riley is ready to go on the kiddie roller coaster at Goofy Barn.

She claims that this is her favorite ride and wants to go again. However, I will let you be the judge of that. When you watch the clip just focus on Riley.

Thank you for such a great trip Nema and Hepa. I know that this will at least be memorable for Riley. Garrett made progress and I am thrilled about that! Scott and I couldn't have had a better family vacation. (officially our first real family vacation since being married).

I've been meaning to post this pictures from Thanksgiving. Sorry it took so long but I figured better late than never.

Did someone say we were suppose to be having fun?

This is much more our style

Not so sure about this guy?

This is sure good jello Aunt Shaliece; I am so glad great grandma Moser is sharing hers.
What a cutie! Go Jane!

Garrett is not so sure about sitting on a bed of nails, even if it is with dad.
Marnee seems to enjoy it much more.

Zoo lights

Not so sure if Kate likes Evan's hand there

I'm thirsty....

After a long day of getting ready for Christmas really works up a thirst apparently. We had just gotten home from shopping, and I went right to the kitchen to prepare lunch. Garrett went right up the stairs and disappeared. I kept calling his name but he never came and I couldn't hear a noise. After about 5 min of calling I went up to try and find him. I was about to go in the play room but saw Riley's bathroom light on. So I went there thinking he was probably loading the toilet with toilet paper. (a fun game actually) This is what I found instead!!! I had to turn and leave to go get the camera before I lost it. It was so hard to keep a straight face once he knew he was busted!!

How can you get mad at that face!!!! Oh how I got a laugh out of his ingenuity.

They woke up Christmas morning to no presents!  Santa must have taken them all away...
It's a good thing Parker, Ryan, & Kate were nice this year so we still had some presents to open.

Abby even got some presents.  Thanks for the blanket Nema!  It's her new favorite spot to rest.
