Vacation 2012

 The animals they make for you on a cruise are quite fun.

In Ensenada Mexico we were able to go to La Bufadora (the blow hole).  The water here hits the cliffs just right and shoots up into the sky.  It was fun to see but once you saw it a few times, well you had seen it. 
 Afterwords we hit the flea market there, it was better than the shopping in town.

 The doggy they made for us.  When we cam in the dog was staring us down.  Our attendant had taken the time to find Rhett's sunglasses and put them on it to.  He later asked us if we had fed it.  Poor doggy later got decapitated when Rhett took the glasses off, how were we to know it was more than one towel.

 The Carnival Inspiration was huge.  It was like sailing on a ship made of a hotel, casino, and restaurant all in one because, well, it is.

 Rhett is quite the ice cream cone maker.  He told the kid watching him make the above cone to "top this kid".  What he should have told the kid is beware of large cones they tend to fall on your shirt.
 On the last night he was determined to eat ice cream cones until the sun went down, he did too.  You can even see the spot on his shirt right there in the middle where he caught the big cone.

 Our last animal was a Sea Lion, of course wearing the sunglasses again.

What trip wouldn't be complete with a stay in Las Vegas.  We go there every year for the World of Concrete Convention.  This year my mom and dad happened to be there for another convention at the same time.  My sister from California came to join the party and since another sister had come with us it was one big family shindig.

Christmas 2011
 Winnie the Pooh books from DI for $1 a piece, I was happy with the price and the kids love them!
Leap frog reader for Chet.

 Opening presents from their Grandma Jensen.

 All 3 kids are super excited about getting cookie mix.  They can't wait to make them.
 Kailey's first Barbie, it was Cinderella.

 More presents from Grandma Jensen.

 They all got a spinbrush tooth brush in their stocking.  They loved them but man those batteries don't last.
 The twins first snowman, they've seen others built but this was the first they got to help with.  The snowman was actually built in Jan of 2012 since Christmas was not WHITE!
 We started the snowman just before dark and luckily their daddy got home just in time to help build one level of the snowman and help lift the middle and the top.  Sadly it's only the middle of February and it is already melted.  Oh well maybe that means spring is just around the corner, one can hope right.
Halloween and Fall 2011

My supper cut kids all dressed up for their trick-or-treating.  They had a lot of fun.  Chet was Woody from Toy Story, Trent was Tigger, and Kailey was Winnie the Pooh.

 Playing in the leaves at Grandma's house.

 Kids are having way too much fun!

 They love getting to play with their cousins.
 Kailey and some of the pumpkins from our patch plus a special pumpkin from her Grandma Jensen.
