Eek. My blog post once a week resolution is not going great, obviously. But I thought I would get one in now, and then I only missed a week! Neat!
This year (uh...last year) it was our turn to go to California for Christmas. It felt like we hadn't been there in forever, but really it had only been since August 2011, so a year and a half. But that is tooooo long to go without being in beautiful California and also WAY too long to go without Disneyland! Am I right?!
So we headed down on the 20th and we had my brother Taylor and his fiance Rachel with us as well. This was our first time meeting Rachel, so it was really fun having her with us on the drive and throughout the whole Christmas trip.
We were in California for about 10 days. We got to go to Disneyland (which was actually a little disappointing...more on that later) and spend time with family and friends, and watch a whole lot of movies. Ben and I, of course, had an amazing Christmas and couldn't help spoiling each other rotten! Here are a couple pictures of our Christmas time!!!
|A lady had just given us fastpasses for Star Tours so we got to bypass a 75 min. wait!!|
|Ok, but check out my highest score EVER on Astro Blasters! I found one of the secret spots!|
|We tried to get a couple pictures with the whole family because we weren't sure the next time we would all be seeing each other. It was a hilarious endeavor, and none of them came out great, but this is one of the best ones.|
It was so nice to be with family and just relax for a week. I'm not sure when we'll be going back to California because of some changes going on with things back home...all good things, but it will certainly make things interesting for our future California trips!
Also, because our Disney days were so frustrating, I'm definitely planning a trip for as soon as possible. As soon as it's a for sure thing, I'll probably be keeping you all updated with the planning progress! Doesn't that sound nice? :)
Oh, and here is a tiny video I took on Christmas morning with a new little video camera Ben got me!
I'm obviously going to be the next Spielberg.
