Regan's Tooth

Couldn't believe it when Regan tooth was loose.
It seemed so early! But it didn't take long........
......and it was out! She was very nervous to have
me pull it. But once I did it she was shocked when
it was not even a big deal. So dramatic! ;)

Ryan's Tootsie Roll Adventure

Ryan received
a piece of candy
in primary, from
a member of the
bishopric. It was
a vanilla tootsie roll.
YUMMY!! Well
he decided it was
his favorite kind of tootsie roll, but that it was not
fair that the regular flavored tootsie rolls came in
a bigger size and not the Vanilla. So, when we got
home from church, he decided to write a letter
to Tootsie Roll Headquarters. In his letter he told
them that he like the vanilla tootsie rolls the best,
that they are his favorite flavor. He then told them
that he really wished they would make the vanilla
flavor tootsie roll in a big bar, like the chocolate one.
We mailed the letter, and a few weeks later he received
a letter back from Tootsie Roll. He was soooooooooo
excited!! We all could not believe he got a response.
The letter (below) said they were pleased to hear from
him. They also told him they would have the vanilla
tootsie roll flavor available in a larger size in the near
future!!! Can you believe that?! They also sent a coupon
for tootsie roll products with the letter. We were all very
excited! Of course, his grandma and mom were on the
verge of tears while he read the letter to us.....I know
we are a bunch of saps :)!! Just thought we'd share
this fun experience!

A Winter Scenic Drive!

One day we decided to go for a drive because we
had recently had lots of rain that caused beautiful
waterfalls on the mountain sides not too far from
our home. We started our journey in the beautiful
desert where we live...............followed the highway...... the beautiful waterfalls along the highway.
What a fun thing to see. The kids were amazed at
the raging waterfalls.

This is where they began their hike to the biggest

They arrived at the bottom of the falls......

.....but of course the adventure was not
over yet..........

.....they had to see how high they could get, and
how close they could get to the raging water.

It was very beautiful.

Regan lovin' the adventure!

Ryan exploring!

Our journey eventually got us to the beautiful
fresh snow up the highway. Always a pretty site.

Even though we weren't dressed or equiped for
snow, the kids just had to get out and play in it.

No matter how cold they got they always had
big smiles on their faces :)

......"cheese" :)

Our adventure was almost over.............

..................and ended with a beautiful Arizona
Sunset!!!! Gotta love it!

Christmas 2009

We decided to go to the Mesa Temple lights on
Christmas Eve! It was so beautiful.....always
an amazing site!!

The kids really enjoyed all the lights!

That blurry blob is Wyatt.......

Our christmas tree, it was very fat this year :)

Christmas morning......Santa gifts!

So much fun!!!

Disneyland Nov. 2009

We went to Disneyland on Thanksgiving day, 2009.
It was so fun!!! Here are a few pics from our day!
This is when we arrived....the sun was very bright
apparently :) The first ride we went on was "Pirates
of the Carabian".....The kids LOVED it sooooo
much!...well, Wyatt was not too sure......

We were all very excited to be there while the
Haunted Mansion was decoarted with "The
Nightmare Before Christmas" stuff.

Getting in line for the Haunted Mansion......They
like the ride, but were a litte scared.

This is in the "Tarzan's Tree House". They had
a ton of fun climbing around with their cousins!

We ran into Aladin and Jasmin........we just HAD
to get a picture :)! As we walked away, after the
picture, Ryan turned to me and said, "She was cute!!"
....refering to Jasmin, of course :) so funny!!

Here we were with all the cousins, Aunts, Uncles,
and Grandma and Grandpa Tomsik.....waiting for
Tiki Room to open. The fountain drops water every
so often, so they are all waiting to touch the water.
That was a fun show! Regan and Ryan argued the
whole time whether the birds were real or not :)
........and the water finally fell...YEA!!

On the Jungle cruise!

In line for "Big Thunder Mountain" fun!
They LOVED this ride!!

Santa's Reindeer!


Dumbo!! Gotta love it!

Ryan was excited to ride by himself!

Gotta love the Tea Cups!!

Regan lovin' the Tea Cups.....priceless :)

Wyatt got lots of Grandma time!! :)

Waiting to ride "Small World" with Grandpa
and Megan!

"Small World" was a little more Wyatt's speed...
.....needless to say.....he really liked this ride.

Hi Regan!!!

Oh my goodness......this was so fun!!
When we got off this ride, all the kids
were jumping up and down, shouting,
and saying how AWESOME the ride was!
So "Space Mountain" was named......
THE BEST RIDE EVER!!!!! Their reaction
to this ride made my whle day!!!! :)
This is the end of our very long day! What a day!!

rides, family, and more rides........We all had
soooo much fun! Even Wyatt.....he was soooo
good all day! It was so fun to see the
kids have SOOOOOO much FUN!! Definately
a day we will NEVER forget!!

Had to save this one for last......:) Ryan

We finally got to ride it that was
so fun, and Ryan loved it, but the drop
kinda scared you can see in the
picture :)...his hands slipped off the handles
and he thought he was going to fly out.....
poor guy.....but he said he had a blast!!
So glad we went!! It was such a fun time!!
