Two Weeks of CRAZINESS

For Christmas, both mine and Jeff's families decided to go on trips rather than spend money on gifts this year.

With the Gardners, we went up to snowy Flagstaff and stayed at a super nice home. There were enough rooms and plenty of space to accomodate us all. There were 13 adults and 10 kids, but most the time it sounded like a lot more. Each family was in charge of a day's activities. There was a birthday party, sledding, raquetball tournament, no-kids-game-night, movies, The Polar Express, and lots of Wii Dodgeball. The funnest part about any family trip is just spending some quality down time with everyone.
We had a lot of fun! Here are some highlights:

Griffin and Kai absolutely LOVED the Polar Express train ride. Thank you Grandma Hope and Grandpa Tom!!!

We drove straight from Flagstaff to Anaheim, CA to meet up with the DeWitts. The week would consist of Knott's Berry Farm -- for sure -- and then all who wanted to (or could -- $$$) had the opportunity to go to Disneyland and Universal Studios. The resort we stayed at had different activities each day. Craft projects, water games, movie night, game night, BINGO night, ping pong tournament, etc.
Knott's is always my favorite part and the boys seemed to love it just as much. Kai, willing to try anything, put his arms up on practically every ride he went on. So funny!

Jeff researched and found a fun children's museum we went to one of the days.

And, of course, you can't have a DeWitt trip without lots of laughs, wall/mirror art, and a depanting of some sorts. This trip it was Allan AND Katie. But I only got pictures of Allan's moment.

Thanks for the good times!!
