Disneyland Fun!!!

We had a fabulous trip to Disneyland a few weeks ago!
We met Grandpa and Granny Kate in California
and spent 2 days with them.
We were having so much fun that
Miss Thang and I decided to extend out trip a few
days and spent 5 days at Disneyland!
Rylee's favorite ride was splash mountain.
We went on it 9 times!

Rylee L.O.V.E.D. meeting all the characters!

she especially L.O.V.E.D. meeting all the princesses
We went to a princess lunch where
Rylee was Sleeping Beauty for the day
She looked darling;)

During the day we played hard...

... and a couple of nights couldn't even make
it through dinner.

Thanks Grandpa and Granny Kate for
SUCH an awesome trip!!!

Christmas Morning

Christmas morning was so fun this year!
I have decided
~4 is the
PERFECT age child to have on Christmas morning~

Rylee tried waking up at 5:00AM
and was told to go back to bed.
We started our morning around 7:20AM
We had to wake up Grandpa and Granny.

Ry was spoiled as usual.
Grandpa and Granny got her the favorite gift this year.
She practiced all afternoon.
We decided to make a surprise
visit to Grandma Great's house in Ogden Christmas evening.
Grandma was SO happy to have extra family around
to celebrate the holiday.
Rylee and Grandma Great played horse.
Grandma was the horse.
She may be 80 but doesn't act or look it!

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was a quiet one this year.
Paul and Missy spent Christmas at home in Chicago,
Ryan and Ryth Ann did the same in Washington,
and Spencer and Brittany got to celebrate
Christmas and the New Year in Australia!
This being said,
Dad, Kathryn, Me, Ry, Sarah, Andrew, and Josh
Went to dinner then down to see
the lights a t Temple Square.

Even though we were a small group we
enjoyed ourselves in the FREEZING cold!

Rylee and her Mama

Andrew, Sarah, and Josh Man

Dad and Kathryn


On our walk back to the car Grandpa
gave Josh and Rylee each a lucky penny
to throw into the fountain.
Ry made a wish.
It went a little something like this...
"I wish Santa will wake me up tonight
and let me meet Rudolph."
That wish didn't exactly come true...
But Santa did being her some pretty
awesome surprises.
To be continued...
