Snowmobiling at Monte Cristo

Today Matt and I were able to get out, kind of like a date... But not really that romantic :) Anyone that knows Matt, knows that he loves to hit the mountains as long as it has a motor moving it. We had a great time riding thru all the powder and pulling Matt out (Matt might need a new back) I did not get to take alot of pictures because I left the memory card in the computer but I took this with the phone.

Merry Christmas

We began the Christmas Holiday by having the Hunter Family over for Christmas Eve. We made yummy homemade pizza's and the kids played. Then the girls opened one present, PJ's, before they headed off to bed. Matt left to pick up the "Big Christmas present" once we knew the girls were asleep.
Kingston aka King Kong ( Justice came up with that nickname )
At 8 am we sent King in to wake the girls. They were pretty surprised and excited. They had all asked Santa for a puppy. ( Matt and I might have had some influence in that) We asked Santa for a puppy too :)

Madison is opening up her barbie car from Georgia. From the look on her face she loved it.
Later on that afternoon Aunt Becky, Aunt Nat, Uncle John and the Boys came up. We ate diner and hung out. Matt and I are so thankful to have such a great family. We love you all so very much!!

Our Little Ballerina's

Today Georgia and Madison had their Christmas dance program. The girls did a little dance to Rudolf The Red Nose Reindeer. What great little reindeer they made. They were so good, following the teachers instructions and listening. Matt and I are so proud of them.

I thought that this was a cute picture.

Dress Up

Normally when the girls all play dress up, Brooklyn will just watch. Not this time, Justice decided that Brooklyn was going to be her little model. Justice helped her little sister get dressed and undressed. You just got to love it when they get along! Brooklyn is becoming one of the girls.

New Set Of Wheels

No, I did not get a new car, but I did get a new bicycle. I have been really good this year so Santa gave me an early christmas present ( He knew just what I wanted )
Justice and I have gone on a couple of bike rides but it seems that snow has put an end to that for now.

All Aboard! The Polar Express

I thought it would be fun to take the girls to see Santa Clause on the Polar Express. As our journey began to the North Pole, Santa's elfs handed out yummy chocolate chip cookies and hot coco. Shortly after, Mrs. Clause came thru and wished the girls a Merry Christmas.

Then we read the story "The Polar Express". By this time the girls were getting anxious to see Santa Clause.
Soon we were at the North Pole where Santa Clause hopped on board. Justice was quite a sight when she found out Santa Clause was coming aboard. She was hiding behind Matt scared to death of Santa.
He did finally make his way to us and gave each of the girls a silver bell.

The Polar Express was alot of fun and it's definitely something that we will do again.

Falling Down The Bunny Hill

My sister Jamie came to visit and she has always wanted to try/go snowboarding. We decided to go to Brighton Ski resort. We started on the bunny hill where Jamie was traumatized when getting off the lift for the first, second , third... time. Going down the bunny hill was fun but she was scared of getting off the lift.
On our last run of the day I thought it would be fun to try one of the bigger runs... we should have stuck to the bunny hill. If Jamie would have had it her way, I think that she would have pushed me off the mountain :)

Sunny San Diego

They were not kidding when they said Sunny San Diego. We had a great time on our first family road trip. All in all, the girls did pretty well on the 13 hour drive. Brooklyn got a little fussy but that was do to the fact that she really did not sleep.
On our first day we went to Torrey Pines which is a Beach near Becky's house. The water was really cold so we did not jump in but the girls got to play in the sand and run through the water.

Later on that day Aunt Becky took the girls to Libby Lu's. They had so much fun. Each of the girls picked out a hairdo, got their finger nails polished, and had their make-up done. Then they each made a cute bracelet with their names on it and picked out goodie bags.
Georgia was a Sassy Princess, Justice was a Rockin Rock Star and Madison was a Punk Rocker.

On day two, we hit Sea World. The shows were awesome, especially the Shamu Show: Believe! Georgia's favorite part was Elmo's Flying Fish ( which we must have ridden on 5 times ). Madison and Justice's favorite part was the "Pets Rule" show.

Riding on the rides at SeaWorldThis is just a cute picture of Georgia and Madison "trying" to share some chips while we are waiting for our turn in line.

On Day 3, we went to The San Diego Zoo. I can honestly say that that they have every animal that you can think of there. We were able to visit the Panda Bear Exhibit, see a Hippo up close, see the Polar Bears and see the Grizzly Bears.
The girls favorite part of the zoo was watching the Otters swim and riding the lift across the zoo.
The zoo was huge and we did get lost a couple of times :)

Taking a ride on a Turtle :)

The next Day we headed off to the The Wild Animal Park. It kind of reminded you of a scene out of Jurassic Park. We got to see some baby elephants,lions,giraffes,zebras and many more animals.

On Wednesday Dave had the day off from work so he showed us around. First we headed out to Del Corondo Island and the girls rode their bikes. Then we drove down to Imperial Beach and walked the length of the peir.
Matt and Dave at the end of the peir

After Del Colondo Island we went to La Jolla which was truely beautifully. We went down their to see all the seals that gather up on the rocks along the beach.

On Thanksgiving, we went over to Becky's house to have dinner. Aunt Becky and the girls decorated notebooks. The girls love to do crafts and each of them turned out really cute.

I think that we went swimming just about everyday that we were in San Deigo. It was like diving into a bathtub, so warm!!
We had a great time :)
Thanks Again Becky
