Only In Vegas

...only in Vegas could you spend Christmas Eve in the pool.
Our friends cranked up the heat in their pool and threw a huge Christmas Eve pool party. It was just like summer (except a little cold). We had BBQ ribs, hot dogs, chili...food and more food. We had a great time and it made the kids fall right to sleep later that night.

Carson and Aubrey

Yum, yum. Cole loves Ribs !


All the boys loved Santa and Mrs. Claus this year. Payton & Cole were so excited to see Santa. We went the Monday before Christmas. It was a super rainy night so we had Santa and Mrs. Claus all to ourselves. The kids got to spend a lot of time telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas. We were finishing up with the picture people and it was time for Santa and Mrs. Claus to leave. The boys started to follow them. We asked where they were going. "We want to go see the reindeer," Cole said.
Merry Christmas!


The first weekend in December we took a road trip to California. Brain's sister and husband were getting sealed to their cutie, Cohen. We caravaned with Grandma and Grandpa Hardy and had to make a pit-stop for dinner. We stayed at Kristy and Travis's new party house. We had an awesome weekend with family. The kids love to play with their cousins and can't wait till the next visit.

The Circus

The day after Thanksgiving, I skipped the usual shopping spree and we took the kids to the circus. Other than being a little cold we had a blast. The boys loved all the performers but thought the motorcycle in the cage was the best. Even little Carson was entertained.

Happy Thanksgiving

This year we celebrated Turkey Day with our friends the VanWagoners. We spent the day cooking, watching the parade, football and the Rocky marathon. We ate way too much yummy food! The kids played and went for a swim in the hot tub. We are so thankful to have such fun friends.
