So since our lives revolve around BYU Football (of course I wouldn't have it any other way) we had to be back to Utah in time for the big game. I was planning to watch the game on TV at my sister Jill's house in Clinton so I could watch the kids there, but my WONDERFUL friend Misti ended up watching them for me at her in-laws in Lehi so I could go to the game. Thanks MIST! I totally owe her, and thanks to the Bruderers for letting the girls come there and helping with them. Even though they are Utes, I think they have a LOT of class, ha ha! The game was so exciting and I was glad I got to go, especially since the right team ended up on top!

So for Thanksgiving this year we were able to spend a wonderful fun-filled week at the Newport Beach Coast Villas in California with my family. As you can see it was beautiful, we had a great time. We flew in Saturday night and went to my aunts' church on Sunday. We walked in just in time to see my Aunt Wendy get put in as Primary President, she will do such a great job! We went the Harbor House after church, a Huntington Beach must and it was as good as I remember. That afternoon we went to the Markhams for dinner, it was delicious and so fun to spend time with such a great family. Monday and Tuesday we were off to Disneyland! My Aunt Sue and Aunt Wendy very generously offered to help out with Quincy so we could focus more on the older girls who would remember it. Quincy did get a little Disneyland time Tuesday morning and that was plenty! McKinley and Halle LOVED Disneyland, I can't wait to take them back!
There were these awesome fountains in California Adventure that all the girls loved running through, they could have stayed there all day!
On Tuesday night the whole fam went to eat dinner at Ariel's Grotto, and it was the best part of Disneyland! A little spendy but each princess came to our table to talk to the kids and take pictures and I have never seen two happier girls than McKin and Halle. Totally worth it!
After dinner we went to Midway Madness, one of the coolest rides in Cali Adventure. However, the line was deceptively long so we took a few pics while we were waiting. Here's the farmers with Mr. Potatohead!
Wednesday we hung out at the beautiful pool and ate and shopped. Thursday we went to Carlsbad to have dinner with the Kimball Clan and Aunt Wendy, it was SO delicious and SO fun. It was so fun that I regrettably forgot to take any pics of the day. My Aunt Deb made a great meal and put in a ton of work, thanks Aunt Deb! Friday we went to the beach, HSS, and Knott's Berry Farm Restaurant for lunch before we flew out.

This year my three little ones were all hula girls, since their mom got a great deal on them in Hawaii this year, and they did rock the coconut bras! My Mom and Dad and Whitney came down after the Aberdeen game for some of the Halloween Festivities, which was really fun. We went to the Trunk or Treat and then around our neighborhood, it was a fun night!

Every year we like to take the girls to Aberdeen to check out Potato Harvest. It's fun for them to see what Grandpa does and where I spent A LOT of time as a kid. There are also the added educational benefits of learning where our food comes from, etc. etc.....Quincy loved rolling on the pipe
