Adios 2008



Goodbye 2008 ...

We partied with the Kirby family. Went to Tito's Tacos in Culver City. I thought it was gross, but was fun to stand with all the people who were obviously excited about some random taco stand. Walked around Westwood and ate Rite Aid ice cream. Do we Mormons know how to party or do we know how to party? Said bye to our friends and now are starting to pack for our road trip.

The kids are asleep and I hope to be asleep by 10 p.m.... We are going to Vegas, Clearfield (never been), Bountiful, and Park City and then a last stop in Hurricane, Utah. We are going to see cousins, a baptism, my grandparents, my mom and some good friends. And Jason's sister Sharla who is fresh off her eighteen month mission to England. All in about six or seven days. Jason has time off and we have no where to be really. Luke doesn't start til the 12th. Can't wait. But wait...14 degrees I hear, maybe not that part. Especially since I wore flip flops and shorts today.

The perfect recipe for New Years Eve-ness...Greasy tacos,



Bad Traffic, Good friends, ice cream...and early bedtimes.




Brief Summary of Santa's loot. Luke's wearing new helemt, sword, spy gear and grabber thing. Very serious five year old boy stuff. Ready to play ...player





Madness Mess of McCoy Mayhem...say five times fast. Madness Mess of ....bla bla bla



Hilarious face of happy girl getting new bear.



Pure bliss of girl receiving fancy princess jewerly box.



Perfect smiling for the doll she does not play with but Santa thought she would really like.
He wins some and loses some, right?

Is that a half Christmas tree? I saw one of those on JC Penny's website the other day. If they would put them on sale, I'd buy one. I like that they don't take up the whole room.

If you're passing by Provo, stop by for some Guatemalan hot chocolate and cookies!!

Are you going to see Renee, too?? Baylie is looking BIG. Crazy. I love the shot of your living room Christmas morning. That's awesome. Have a great trip!

Those pictures were so cute. Awesome toys. They look so happy. I miss you already and jealous you are going to Utah.

Bailey said...

I'm so glad that someone else thought Tito's was gross. Have fun on your trip!

The question is...did you eat chocolate malted crunch? That is Than's favorite rite aid ice cream. If you have a spare minute you should go to Jana's house so we can see you. :)
