Polar Express December 2010

The Polar Express in Williams, AZ is something my family has talked about doing for a long time and last year, we actually went. All the kids and grandkids (minus Nick who was in S. Korea). We had a great time on the Polar Express and playing in the snow!!!
Grandma and Grandpa Hache came with us, too.


The boys: Tylar, Connor, Garrett and Colby


On the way to the North Pole the story was told. Kiera loved it!


My Colby. Love and miss him so much.


THE NORTH POLE, of course!


Colby wasn't singing, so he was forced to be the leader!


Grandma and Grandpa singing with the kids.


Kiera very hesitantly took her present from Santa.


We got back to the hotel just in time for the snow to start falling.


We really thought we were having fun in the snow......then came morning.


There was a lot of snow! The cousins had so much fun!


What an amazing family vacation!

Grandparent Breakfast

A few months ago there was a "Grandparent Breakfast" at school. I kind of forgot about it until the last minute, but Grandpa Ed was able to make it. Gabriel loved this for a couple of reasons.
#1 He got to eat donuts with Grandpa for breakfast!!

#2 He got to go outside for morning recess (Pre-K students aren't allowed outside in the mornings) to watch Grandpa play football with the middle schoolers.....

And so he could play basketball with some of his buddies from Before and After Care!

He loved it!

Gabriel's first "performance"

Gabriel has been taking music classes since September and he was able to play his first song on December 6th. He played "Santa's Jingle Bells" with the help of his classmates playing the bell part. Pretty cute!

Fall Break in San Diego

For Fall Break 2010 we took the kids to San Diego for the first time. We spent time with friends and enjoyed spending some quality time together. We all had such a great time, and we can't wait to go back!

Dinner in Little Italy. Ernesto met us for dinner and then hung out with us for a while.

Gabriel, Kiera, and Kami relaxing at the hotel. We stayed up pretty late and the kids enjoyed partying with us.

We went to Sea World! Here Gabriel is trying to touch the Sting Rays. He was successful one time! Kiera's arms weren't long enough, but she enjoyed trying.

Family picture in front of the penguins!

Kami and Kiera enjoyed looking at the map and telling us and each other where to go.

The finale was great as usual. The kids really enjoyed the show; except Kami who fell asleep.

Heading home! Here are the kids with Tony. We had a great day adn really enjoyed our trip to San Diego!!!
