Thanksgiving trip to the BeachHouse!

On our drive from AZ to CA

Hudson & Lucy...2 months apart

this was our last time seeing Kendal before she left on her mission to Chile

arts & crafts with cousins is always fun

I'm going to miss this girl for two years

my mom always decorates the cutest for every holiday dinner

Lisa was watching Liv for the Fergies while they were on vacay

some of the cousins

Navy sure thinks Ollie is HER dog

love my girl

We ended almost everynight hot tubbing

I took these crazy nephews of mine out to Target for Black Friday to meet up with Lisa and Kelly. Then we finished the night a McDonald's for an ice cream cone

We spent one day at Big Air

Dessert time!

Navy loved playing with Kendal

Navy went on a walk with Mimi & Papa while we were at the beach

We hiked to "on top of the world" in Laguna Beach

We drove over to CA from AZ to spend Thanksgiving with my family. It's always a fun and crazy time when were all together. My kids just love being with their cousins for non stop fun. We played a lot at the park, we went to the beach, we cooked a lot of food, we went black Friday shopping, we went to Big Air and ate lots of yummy food. It's always a good time with the family! We miss living so close to everyone.

Flag Football

Erin was doing a "his hands" slideshow for our RS enrichment night and took a few shots of Navy and I

what we really look like during flag football games
Crew & Hudson started flag football for their very first time. I was really nervous to see how they were going to play but they both really surprised me. They both caught on so fast and were amazing!!! They are so much fun to watch and Crew's coaches even nicknamed Crew, "crew cuts." We are looking forward to many more football games in the future!

As we were getting ready to leave for our staycation this little one fell asleep on me.

We were in need of a stay we packed our bags and headed up to the Westin at Kierland Commons in Scottsdale. They had a fabulous pool, lazy river, slides, splash pads and flow rider. The kids were in heaven and I don't think we saw them the entire day. We had a fabulous time together as a family and plan to keep this tradition alive.

Family Pictures

The very talented Aubrey Startin took our family photos this year. I am trying to embrace this beautiful desert we live in so I thought that we should do a photo shoot in the desert with cacti. I love how she captured our family and was so energetic and great with the kids. The end result turned out amazing and even tiny prints asked for our family to be on their website...pretty cool! Thanks again Aubrey!!
