Baking with the boys

Okay, who am I trying to kid. I didn't "bake" the cookies, we just decorated them. We sure had fun though.

Jack - takes his time and is always so proud of his final product

Benjamin - plops it on and goes straight to eating part

"First Friday" Fun - Christmas Edition

The family (minus me - boo) in front of the Christmas tree on Atlantic Ave. here in Long Beach.

We were all bundled up. You know those chilly California nights (he he)

Such cuteness!

If I can be real honest for a moment - I want to put it out there that the ONLY Christmas gift I want this year is for my boys to be like this picture above - kind and loving to one another. Sadly, there has been WAY too much sibling rivalry dampening my Christmas cheer and saddening my heart lately.

We weren't expecting to run into Santa but were sure happy to snap a cute (and free) picture with him. Annabelle was quite intrigued with him. By the time we got her to look at us, the boys were pretty much over the whole smiling thing. Oh well, what can you do.

We ended our night with a Jamba Juice and our usual ride on the BIG RED BUS!!

Another fun family night. I sure cherish these super great times.

Christmas Parade at Disneyland

Although the parade really wasn't that great it was SUPER GREAT to see the kids eyes light up as the parade went by. This was our first time going to Disneyland during the Christmas season. The park is beautifully decorated and the big pumpkin that was there just weeks before has been replaced with a really big Christmas tree.

Annabelle LOVED everything about the parade - the music and the dancing seemed to be her favorite. It was great to see her smile and waive back at all the characters.

We also got in a few rides before heading home

It was another fun family day at Disneyland!
