Thanks TT


The boys LOVE there jammies they got from Aunt Patrice (TT as Ryder calls her) and Aunt Lisa. Noah is just like me and loves to be comfy so whenever we get home he puts his jammies back on. Luckily he got two pairs because seriously he has to wear them every night. Thank goodness he can wear one while I wash the other. I just love jammies and love these cute morning faces!!

It's Over

I can't believe that Christmas came and went. All thats left is a messy house and four pictures. That's right four. Sad day. I really really need to be better about getting out the camera....hmmm I feel a New Years Resolution coming on.

We started the festivities out with Church with the Trapp side of the family, after church we headed to Islands for dinner. The kids loved running around and getting all there wiggles out. Afterwards we went to Jeff's Dad's for presents and dessert. Noah was all about Christmas this year. Sawyer really only cares to open one present after that we had to pretty much open them for him, he was excited about them once the wrapping was off and he realized they were his. Ryder was content with gift bags. Poor guy has been terribly fussy the last few days. I am crossing my fingers that it is teething 2yr molars....the pits.

(the only picture I took Christmas Eve)

For the last two year we have spent at home which I love. We went home and opened jammies and new blankets and then Jeff read the boys the Christmas story.

Santa brought the boys lots of goodies a big hit was the doughnuts in there stockings.


We then headed out to Temecula to enjoy the day with my family. I love this time of year. I just need to learn to mellow out and enjoy it. (another new years resolution) But we had a wonderful Christmas. And have been so blessed this year!!

We hope you all had a very Merry Chritmas!!

Park fun with Daddy

On Wednesday before Christmas Jeff got off at noon!! Such a treat. With all the craziness we took the boys to the park. They love this park and I never take them there because it is too big and has lots of high things to climb on. So we only go here with Jeff. The boys love to play with Daddy he is always so much fun!

Noah's favorite big twirly slide....

Noah also LOVES to make sand angels!

They had slide races too! It was a great way to start out a long holiday weekend!!

Noah and I had a fun morning making cookies for Santa. I absolutely love this time of year, Noah is at the best age. This is the first year he really is excited and into all things Christmas. I LOVE it!! I can't wait for Sawyer and Ryder to join in the fun.




Having children is the best during the holidays they are so precious and it makes it so special to see it all through there eyes. We are having a great time building memories together!!

We love the Weekends!!

This weekend we were busy busy. Just the way I like it!!! On Saturday we got up bright and early and went to our ward Christmas party. We didn't last long. We had told the boys we were going to go to Sea World so they were ready so we left rather quick.

We had a great time. I got a wonderful new camera which I still need a major lesson. Because basiclly almost all the pictures I shoot in manual are coming out blurry. I need some practicing!! So here are a few that were slightly spared.


The highlight of Sea World was finally getting the chance to feed the dolphins. I do not know who was more excited Jeff or the boys!! It made there whole day!!

After Sea World we stopped at the San Diego Temple to see the lights. It was so pretty! The boys loved it.

Last night we celebrated Christmas here with Jeff's mom and family. It was craziness. And sadly every picture I took was blurry. Which makes me so sad. I guess I will be shooting in Auto until I get the hang of this!!

Disneyland Jedi

Yesterday we hit up Disneyland with a few of our friends. Lisa suggested the Jedi Star Wars show. I have never taken the boys to it but knew it was right up Noah's alley. They pick kids from the audience to be trained as a Jedi, Noah raised his hand and got picked. I was a little worried because I had never seen the show but Noah was right at home.

They start with giving each child a robe and a light saber they then teach them the moves it take to destroy Darth Vader.

Then Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, and Darth Maul storm the stage challenging the Jedi's. I thought for sure Noah was going to freak out, it was slightly scary. He had a blast and practiced his moves on Darth Maul.

It was such a cool experience Noah loved it. Gavin and Noah then made light sabers. They were so excited about Star Wars. Gavin was such a cute friend congratulating Noah on a job well done!!

Sawyer like the light saber too!

Finally Jeff met up with us we went on a few rides the kids LOVED toon town it was hardly crowded so they got to run around and touch everything!!

On the way out we grabbed some dinner and then walked around Downtown Disney. The boys LOVED the Lego Store!!

It was such a fun time!

Perfectly Festive Weekend!

We had a great weekend filled with lots of holiday activities.

Friday night Jeff and I went to his annual Firm Christmas party. Jeff dominated the kareoke contest and took home a win for our team!! Here we are all dressed up and ready to go. I will admit it is fun to get a new outfit and get dressed up!

Saturday morning we braved the rain and headed out to do some errands. The rain has made for some very very crazy boys. It will be nice to get out this week. Ryder looked so cute all bundled up to go out...

Saturday night we went over to Grandma Jody's and Papa Rich's to do gingerbread houses. The boys had so much fun, I think Sawyer ate every last piece of candy while Noah ate tons of frosting.

Our house all finished...scary I know.

Afterwards I tried to get a few pictures of the boys in Grandma's cute hats, but they weren't having it!!

Tonight we finished off the night with our stakes live nativity Follow The Star.

It is such an awesome event it is always such a great way to celebrate this wonderful season.
We had such an awesome weekend!!
