It has been so hard for us to get into the Christmas season! It's 60 degrees out at it's coldest! So, to try and get in the spirit we went to Fashion Island with the Roney's, grabbed some dinner and with 7 kids in tow went to go see Santa. Mak and Perry were so excited but Bentley clearly didn't like him and I don't think Santa was so sure of her either. This is definately my favorit picture ever!! I L-O-V-E LOVES IT!

Afterwards we went to see the 150ft. christmas tree and play on the giant packages.

Afterwards we rode on the carousel and finished the night off with some peppermint hot chocolate.

I suppose it's starting to feel like Christmas. We do have a Christmas tree although it's not decorated. I guess I'll go work on that now. Merry Christmas!!!

It has truely been busy and I have so much to catch up on! I hope everyones Thanksgiving was as good as ours was. We did a lot of playing and sleeping in late. So On Tuesday the kids had their Colonnial Days. Mak went to school dresssed as an indian and since I was helping at school I got dressed up too. Although Mike said I looked like a hippie and not an indian. What do you think?
On Thursday I ran the Turkey Trot. I finished in 56 mins! I know for sure I could've done it in 50 mins if it weren't for the 10,000 runners crammed into one car lane and pouring down rain!!! I was wearing a waterproof jacket that was clearly not water proof for that amount of rain and my shoes weighted 5lbs each! I actually like running in the rain but that was a major rain storm and I was freezing afterwards! I love my fam so much! They all came out and stood in the rain to support me and never complained once about it.

On Saturday we took my parents and the kids to Sea World. The kids had such a blast. Bentley loved the shows! When the croud would clap she would get so excited and start laughing and clapping herself. She thought everyone was clapping for her, it was so funny!This is my Dad and Makayla sitting in the soak zone at the Believe show with Shamu.

Saturday we were lucky enough to go on a date. We decided to go to Disneyland and ride some big kid rides. We got a picture with Mickey and Mike got a little jealous that a mouse was getting more action from his wife than he was.
