Annual Zoo Lights trip

We love the Phoenix Zoo!  We also really love Christmas lights, so the two combined equals joy!  We have gone with our friends Jodi and Jordan the past year or so and have a blast.  This year Jordan wanted to do the Polar Slide, so the kids and I watched her go down.  Elle and Ivan told me they really wanted to do it, so I told them "do you realize I can not go down with you.  You have to go by yourself."  Ivan shook his head that he understood and Elle told me she understood.  So okay, Jordan wanted to go down again.  Perfect, her and Elle could race and then Ivan and I could race.  We got our tickets stand in line.  Ivan was trying to cut in front of the kids ahead of us, he was really excited!  I told the girls they were to go before Ivan and I, because I did not want Jordan to get stuck with Elle and then her not want to do it.  What a nightmare that would be for Jordan.  So, the girls go, Elle was a little skeptical, but went!  Now Ivan and I are to go...did not happen.  He freaked out when the workers asked him to get into the tube.  So, him and I walked down the stairs and got our money back.  I told him next year would be better.  It was nice to see him willing to do it though.  Until next year!

John Michael Montgomery

I got to meet JOHN MICHAEL MONTGOMERY!  I was super excited, as any country music lover would be!
Jodi, Shaleen and I had a great time singing and laughing and having a nice girls night out!  It was so needed!  Thanks girls for a great night!

Running around the diamond

Since it had rained here for two days straight, I thought it would be fun to teach the kids something outside. We went to the park and played on the baseball diamond. Kids had such a blast running around the bases and playing in the dugouts. Enjoy the photos!

Moms Visit

My mom came down for my birthday weekend!  I was so excited, that is really all I wanted.  Especially since the kids and I are not going home for Christmas.  We hung out on Thursday after picking her up from the airport, ran to Walmart and that was about it.

Friday we went to the mall to shop and see Santa.  The kids did not want to see him, so mom and I told them we were going and they had to come stand in line with us.  It worked, they ended up getting excited and so we got a photo. 

Saturday I worked and mom had the kids help her with Christmas cookies.  They had a great day, they were waiting for me when i got home.  We went to dinner and then drove around looking at Christmas lights.

 We woke up Sunday, had Christmas and I ran to work.  My brother, mom and kids showed up at work which made my BDAY!  Even though I had to work and my mom left for home, I had a great day!  I had a great weekend!!!  Thanks mom for coming down!  I love you!
