Steph's younger brother, Jake the Snake tied a very tight knot as he married the former Natalie Hawkes in the Salt Lake Temple. We made the trip out to celebtrate with them, and had some good times with the family

"Man, what other kid on the block can actually say they have a talking, singing, moving animal train? I must have been better this year than I thought. Or else better than my Daddy and Mommy told me I was."

Both Steph and Morgan and have done the Disneyland thing (Celestial Kingdom on Earth)several times, but never during the holidays. That is until, this year. Of course, it was Keira's first trip. There were 16 of us in all as Steph's family were all there to spend a few days with us in Southern California. And other than 1 rain soaked day, the rest was of the getaway was good times. Short lines, nice temps, and tons of talking bears, dolls, critters, dwarfs, fish, fairies and pirates to scare the heck out of us

Keira's official initiation into the family. The SMUSCH by Uncle Jared and Brady. Much much bigger than any mundane Christening or Barmitzvah
Her Tinker Bell hat we found in the Mad Hatter Gift Shop. Had her written all over it.

Jake and Morgan on the new Toy Story ride at California Adventure. One of the highlights at either park

Miss Kaylie. Holding Keira here, but all she's really thinking about is Mason. So dreamy
