Fallin' behind- Quick update

Well it's usually Jenn who updates this, but we have both been so swamped the past few weeks (months) that it's hard to work things in. So we're going to do a quick overview of the past few months. Jenn finished her first year of cheer, and it was a relief to be finished for the year, but it didn't last long, tryouts for the next year were only a few weeks later (last week), and so it starts all over again.

Haiden loves it though. This is the cheer camp the cheerleaders put on.

We also went back to Disneyland in February with my brother Wesley. Disneyland is one of those places where you're excited to go, but then you find out you hotel is miles away. You don't want to take the shuttle because you need to break down your stroller and it's just a hassle, so you end up walking. But February is one of the best times to go, so that makes up for it....just able to walk right on to any ride you want. Well that would have been the case had it not been "ski week" more most schools in California. What is "ski week" you ask, just another reason for Disneyland to be PACKED!! Yes it was busy. So just a heads up, if you're going to Disneyland and there is ANY want want to reconsider. We want in October just after Columbus Day....Columbus day, I KNOW; and yes it was packed.
The anticipation is killing her

Toy Story line...never short. But Lexi always had a good attitude.

This is the standard end to the day (Zach and Lexi)

Standard Tea Cups

This is her best Rabbit.

So at the end of 3 days you're more then ready to come home, but when you get home and back to work...the "disneyland rush" doesn't seem all that bad. So we're talking about going back in September, just staying away from the holidays (or "made up days" in some cases).

New Year's...

 Haiden at 11:35 pm
Lexi at 11:35 pm

Guess we don't throw much of a party. Lexi and her friend Peyton sure enjoyed themselves. I think Haiden takes after me cause by 10:00 I was exhausted!!! Happy New Year's! 
...... Christmas pictures to come soon!

 I can't believe how behind I am. Since I last blogged back in August we have been so busy. We went to Lagoon in September thinking it was late enough in the season that the crowd wouldn't be bad. We were wrong. 3 large companies had employee parties there that day. The rain scared a few off but it was still fun. Haiden loves that she can ride some of the bigger rides now days. Lexi is just jealous that she can't. At the beginning of October we headed to Disneyland again! Again thinking the crowd would not be bad. Boy are we poor judges of that!!! It was still a blast though! We love that place. Other than that my girls have just been growing like crazy. Haiden is becoming so grown up and says the funniest things sometimes. I love her randomness and personality. Lexi went from baby to toddler in like a day. She tries to talk all day long and loves copying everything Haiden does. Just love these girls. Here are some random pictures from our adventure. Enjoy!!!
All ready for dancing!!

Lagoon Train Ride

Not so sure what she thinks about the train ride.

She looks so small for that seat.

Nothing like boating in the rain

It's impossible to get these kids to look at the camera at the same time.

All ready for church

Family Pictures!!

 My friend took some family pictures for us this summer. I love the way the kids pictures turned out!! Super cute. Thanks Meghan.


 So once again I am slow but better later than never. Joe and I went to Aruba the beginning of July. It was awesome. We left the kids with my parents and took a week for ourselves. We played on the beach, went snorkeling, site seeing, and a whole lot of relaxing. Here are some of our pictures.

Love This...

 Emma Watson on Modesty:
  "I find the whole concept of being ‘sexy’ embarrassing and confusing. If I do an interview with photographs people desperately want to change me – dye my hair blonder, pluck my eyebrows, give me a fringe. Then there’s the choice of clothes. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skirt. It’s nothing to do with protecting the Hermione image. I wouldn’t do that. Personally, I don’t actually think it’s even that sexy. What’s sexy about saying, ‘I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?’ My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal the more people can wonder."
