Fall and Winter
We have had such a fun fall and winter. The pictures uploaded in backward order.... We took advantage of the never ending winter and took the boys sledding. We were lucky enough to have the hill to our selves for a good portion of the evening. The boys loved it. At first Nixon didn't like the wind in his eyes, but once we switched up his tube and he felt more secure, he lasted longer than Parker.
Parker loved going fast with Daddy. He liked to tell the story after ward about how they almost went over the brim and Nathan had to dig his feet in the snow to stop them. He thought that was really cool.
We checked out the Ice Castles and they didn't disappoint. They were so beautiful I can't wait to see what they look like next year. Pictures don't do it justice. There were tunnels to walk through and tons of photographers. I'm pretty sure a National Geographic person was there, so if you see the article let me know, I'd love to see what they wrote about it.
Nathan and I were lucky enough to go on a cruise in December with 6 other couples from our neighborhood. It was 7 days of heaven. We stopped in Honduras, Belize and Mexico. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. It was hard for me to leave my kids for that long-the longest before that had been 18 hours -but I am so glad we did. It was tons of fun.
In November our family went to Disneyland with my grandparents and aunts and uncles on my dad's side of the family. It was so much fun. We love Disneyland and it was furn for Parker and Nixon to be there with my mom and dad.
