On the 12th, my mom, Cole and I headed down to Disneyland for a look at what they do for the "Holidays." This was the first time my mom had been to Disneyland in about 10 or 12 years. She bought and annual pass so she could join us as often as possible! :) Cole and Grandma had a blast going on rides together and hanging out. Here are some pics of our fun afternoon/evening at the DL!
The castle at night....SO pretty!
Cole and Grandma on the tram ride, ready to have fun!
Grandma and Cole waiting for the Dumbo ride!
And here they are getting ready to fly!!!
And they're off....
It's a Small World all lit up...AWESOME!
We were also able to join Summer and Todd, Ashlyn & Jeremy and Summer's sister, Breezy for a couple of the hours....always a blast with the Rought's...this was probably their last trip to DL for a while as they are moving to SLO in 11 days!!!! We were glad to be able to join them for a while and I snapped this cute picture of Cole and his "best friend," Jeremy walking out of the Buzz Lightyear ride...
The cold tram ride home after waiting for 30 minutes for it! BBBBRRRRRRRR!!!! Grandma wrapped both of them up in G-Pop's big jacket and kept them warm...except for their noses! :) And there were still smiles from them too! :)
Last Friday, Emilie, Brice, Katy, Beau and myself were hired to be "Carolers." We sang at a Christmas party for Janice Simpson from Grace. It was a lot of fun preparing and practicing and I hope and pray that all her guests truly enjoyed the songs we sang and really listened to the lyrics of the music. We were able to sing 8 songs, 3 with accompaniment, and 5 acapella, and we think it turned out pretty well! After singing, we went to my parents house and surprised them by caroling at their door too! They loved it! And they were able to watch the Colester overnight so Mike and I, along with Emilie and Brice, could go see I Am Legend! All I have to say is...WOW. I seriously had a headache for 2 days after the movie because it was so FREAKIN' intense. I enjoy thriller and suspense flicks, but this was over the top in my opinion. The story line was pretty awesome and definitely left a lot to think about, however, I will probably only watch that one once!
On Saturday morning, I headed up to my parent's house to meet up with them and head out to Wrightwood, CA for our Davis Family Christmas! We had a GREAT time chatting with my cousins and aunts and uncles and ALL three kids had a blast playing in the snow that was still there from a storm the weekend before! Cole really had a blast and thought it was REALLY funny to throw snowballs at people and mama's car! Here are couple of pictures of the kids enjoying the cold weather....the girl is my cousin, Dusty and his new bride's daughter, Savannah or Sav, and the boy is my other cousin Steve, and his wife Morna's son Zachary...
All three kids on the sled...no way were we going to be able to get all three kids looking at the camera at the same time!!! :)
Cole making use of EVERY part of the toys!
Zachary posing in the snow!!! SO CUTE!
"Aunkey" and Cole playing Lincoln Logs...well, Aunkey is building and Cole is shooting...
Probably the biggest hit of the night...this puzzle that made sounds...very entertaining!
Zachary with his spoon...Savannah lookin' around, and Cole running and jumping in the snow!
Cole, Sav, and Zach with "Uncle Steve" or "Daddy"
The three kids throwing snowballs over the balcony...Cole's favorite part.
We really enjoyed ourselves and had a wonderful time with family!! Thanks to the Nish Family for opening the Wrightwood house to us all and allowing us to actually see snow this Christmas season!!!
