New Year’s Eve

Is absolutely the best time to go to The Magical Forrest at Opportunity Village.  NO LINES= NO WAITING!  We got free tickets and even better, every adult was given a $5 gas card when we entered.  Mikey loves trains and so we had to do that first!  We also rode the carousel, the huge carnival slide, little snow bunny hill slide, and sipped hot cocoa while listening to the live band.  Wow, I just realized we didn’t even walk through the forrest of decorated trees!  We brought Uncle Brian along so he could take our pics =o)  It worked out well b/c we found another family we knew and we could take turns riding rides and being on stroller duty.  For sure we have a tradition started now!

Christmas 2008

I just downloaded all the pics on my camera and I finally have time to sit down and blog again, yay!

The tree never got decorated.  There just wasn’t time really.  The Christmas train was enough for this happy bunch.   Mikey opened some Dominoes on Christmas Eve and helped Josh open a new high chair that straps to a regular chair.  Josh has  had 1 too many close encounters with the kitchen floor because he slides right out!  We spent Christmas in St. George with Mike’s family and it was so much fun to watch Mikey light up with excitement with every present.  Next year I need to remember to introduce my kiddos to Santa Claus.  They have never even seen the guy!  If you can’t tell from the pictures, Mikey really likes the movie Cars and he was spoiled from all the family!  Christmas is so much fun with kids this age.
