Darda Racetrack

This might be a little late for all you organized people out there, but I thought I'd share something my boys got for their birthdays from Grandpa and Grandma that would make a great Christmas present. The Darda Create a Course building system is available on Amazon and you have 5 more days to still use free super saver shipping :). It is really great. You can build a million different layouts and then you just rev the cars and let them go...no batteries required. From our one set, we currently have 2 tracks built. A big shout out to Brandon for being my demonstrator in the video. Check it out!

The boys have played with it a lot since they got it in August and we've set up 5 or 6 different courses. I definitely give this one 5 out of 5 stars. Happy shopping everyone!

Junction Holiday Sing

Junction put on a great Holiday show last night! Each grade sang 2 songs complete with hand actions...they did a great job. Brandon and the other 2nd graders did "Frosty the Snowman" and "All I want for Christmas". That was perfect for them since most of them ARE missing their two front teeth. Zach and the Kindergarteners sang "Jingle Bells" and "Rudolph". Sadly, the sound system ran into a glitch for the Kindergarten and they had to sing a capella. I think that threw them off their game a little, but they were still so cute! The evening was topped off by cookies and hot chocolate and a visit from Santa. What a fun evening! Too bad we did NOT have great photo angles on either kid...

Christmas at Disneyland

Disneyland is so amazing at Christmas! We love the way Small World and The Haunted Mansion get completely redone. The parades are great and it even snows after the fireworks! We had a blast down there for a few days after Thanksgiving. It was fun to meet the characters all dressed up for the holidays. Nate is so big now...he got to go on the Matterhorn Bobsleds. Where did my baby go? Only 4 more inches until we're all on Space Mountain together! Here's a few shots of the trip (and yes, the first 2 our camera was in the wrong mode).
