Grace's 7th Birthday

Grace had a special birthday and turned 7 on January 7th.  Since we had celebrated the day before with Nana and Pop it was a low key birthday.  She was still out of school for Christmas break.  The morning started off with a trip to the donut store, followed by presents, then a lunch playdate at the park.  That evening the birthday girl requested Hawaiian haystacks for dinner and Major Brain Freeze frozen yogurt for dinner.  How come 7 seems so much older than 6?  We sure love you Gracie Girl.

Nana and Pop Visit

Nana and Pop came for a visit January 3rd-6th.  We had such a wonderful time.  Ben and has Dad played golf Friday morning, then we headed down to San Diego.  That afternoon we walked the coast.  They had lots of little vendors, shops, restaurants, and a merry-go-round.  We stayed in a hotel downtown and the next morning we went to the San Diego zoo followed by walking the grounds of the Temple.  Sunday was a relaxed day with church and beautiful weather.  Before dropping Nana and Pop off at LAX on Monday morning we went to "The Grove" shopping center where Gracie got treated to some new American Girl doll things.  This place was a little girls heaven.  We always enjoy having Nana and Pop visit.  Thanks for coming!

New Years Eve

We had another great New Years Eve party at Grandmas.  The kids were LOVING the dance party that, in particular dancing to the "Frozen" music.  Grandma had fun games, silly string, party hats, and blowers for the kids.  The kids celebrated at 8 o'clock.  Adults enjoyed games together that evening and barley made it until midnight.  The boys kept the tradition alive (possibly the last year to do it) and sold seat cushions the next morning. We are looking forward to what 2014 has in store.
