Disneyland 2010

Two weeks ago me, Jared, Sam and Jared's mom went to Disneyland! Our season passes expire in February so we wanted to used them again while we could. We were able to go two days in a row and we had such a great time!!! We couldn't have done it without Jared's mom coming along because she was so willing to watch Sam while we went on all the big rides. Sammy only made it through a couple of lines--he hated having to stand in one place. So we spent a lot of time in the several playgrounds around the parks. Sam was wearing his squeeky shoes both days and we got so many comments and amazed looks from people walking by. So many people had never seen (or heard) anything like them. A couple of moms stopped us to ask us where we got them. It was fun to watch peoples faces as we walked by. Oh we had such a good time. I want to go back so bad, but Jared is burned out on Disneyland--sad.

lots of "1st-s" over the holiday

Sammy has a few first-s while we were in Utah for Christmas. His first haircut--this is the before:
And this is the after. My mom cut it and she did such a good job! He looks like such a little boy now. I was a little sad to have his hair cut, but maybe now we'll stop getting comments like "your daughter is so cute."
Also, Sammy played in the snow for the fist time in his life!
Jared took all the kids who wanted to outside and they made a snow pyramid. Sammy has always loved being outside so he loved the snow too.

Here are some more pictures of the hair cut. I just held Sam and gave him juice while my mom cut so that Samuel wouldn't know what she was doing back there. It seemed to work great.

Christmas 2009

Jared, Sam and I spent this Christmas in Utah with my family. We were all together and we had such a GREAT time. We were there for a good 10 days...BUT we had to drive. Luckily Jared's mom gave us an early Christmas present--a portable DVD player! So Sam did great on both drives. We had such fun and we got to see so much family--both mine and Jared's.
