Ashlee joined ballet and had her first performance last week. She is such a cutie and loves being on stage performing. At their winter performance she did a number to Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer. Her teacher is so great with all these little girls. At the end of the recital she called each one up and presenting them with a rose. Ashlee was so excited. She loves Ms Jessica.
Our tradition of stopping at In n Out on our way home.
On Thanksgiving day we went to my brother Bryan's house. It was actually really warm that the kids swam in the pool. The rest of the weekend we headed to the lake with the Garcia's. We went riding, hung out and had another thanksgiving dinner there.
For Jaron's birthday this year we went to Disneyland with Bryan and Sariah and their kids and Uncle Mike. He had such a fun time just going off with his big cousins that we hardly saw those boys all day.

Ashlee was so excited to meet Mickey. Bryson on the other hand would only go near him if I was holding him.
Tea Party time with Mommy and Ashlee
Jaron with his 2 favorite cousins. They are so good to him and he loves hanging out with them.
I can not believe my oldest is 9 and in 4th grade now. Jaron is such a great big brother and helps me so much. It is fun to see him grow and change and develop his cute little personality. We love him so much and glad he's in our family!

For our family home evening activity we took the kids to our local pumpkin patch. They had so much fun. They went on some rides and went down the giant slide. Before we left we told them to pick out their pumpkins and they decided to get one giant one instead a small one for each of them. I should of taken a pic of Ash and JJ carrying that thing. It was bigger then them!
I love it when my kids...(1) use their imaginations/creativity while playing. (2) choose something they all will have fun doing. Well this was one of those days...JJ asked to use some old boxes and then 30 minutes later he made all the kids cool box cars. They had such a fun time. Who knew boxes could keep them busy all night!
Jaron and his cousins having a smashball tournament
My 2 youngest always played so hard during the day that at night that just conked out. Each night we had a bonfire and they could never make it through. As you can see in these next pics Bryson first fell asleep and just a few minutes after taking this...
Eating our 4th of July dinner of nachos and hotdogs
Getting ready for the show to begin
Watching the fireworks from our boat
We spent 4th of July at Lake Havasu. We got on our boat about 4 that afternoon and spent the day swimmimg and tubbing. As it got dark we headed over to where the fireworks show would be. We ordered dinner off a boat that serves food in the middle of the lake and then relaxed and watched the show. It was really good and we all enjoyed it. Lake Havasu is one of my favorite places to go with my family. We always have such a blast there!
