Christmas 2013

Making gingerbread houses.  The kids would not be serious about making them this year and all they did was make a huge mess.  Plus they ate as many candies as they put on their gingerbread houses.

Santa came to the Christensen's house.  He got Garret hot tub filters.  (Anything that we bought in December, Kirt wanted to give to the kids.)  He also got a new iPod.
Katie got hot tub chemicals.  She also got new skis.  
Tanner got shot gun shells

Tanner breaks his arm

Tanner broke his arm playing indoor soccer the Saturday after Thanksgiving.  He doesn't even really play on the team, he was just filling in because the team was short some players because people were out of town for Thanksgiving.  His outdoor soccer coach, Reid Dickinson, asked him if he would fill in and I pretty much made Tanner play even though he didn't really want to.  Who feels guilty now?

Thanksgiving 2013

This year we had Thanksgiving the Friday after Thanksgiving. I had to work on Thanksgiving, so everyone was nice and waited to have Thanksgiving dinner on Friday.  Mom and Dad were in Utah with Granny, Marsha and Jim, so I got to host.  Jon, Michelle, Sadie, Nixon, Cameron and Rachelle came to celebrate with us.  Kirt and Tanner deep fried a turkey in the back yard.  Of course these are the only pictures we have from the day.

Halloween 2013

Pumpkin Carving.  I put tape on mine and painted the face on.  So talented aren't I?  The kids all did letters on theirs this year.

On October 20th we left Spokane and headed to Disneyland.  We spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Disneyland and California Adventure.  We went to Universal Studios on Thursday.  On the way back from there, we drove by our house in West Hollywood, had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and went to the LA temple.  On Friday we went to Sea World.  Saturday we flew home.  It was a grand adventure!

On our way!  Katie and Tanner doing homework in the airport.
