We can't believe how quick Christmas came and went this year!!! The boys successfully stayed on the "nice" list and got some really fun toys from Santa! Brayden's favorite gifts were his Batman castle, Lego's and his automatic Nerf machine gun!! Jack loves his "wred" barn with his farm animals and his blackhawk "coptey"!! We felt so blessed this Holiday Season to be able to spend so much time with our family and friends! We definitely missed our Elder Lindley who spent this Holiday Season in the MTC but know he is right were he needs to be! We hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all a Happy New Year!! We love you!

DiSNeY CrUiSe 2009!!!

All 15 of us on Tortola Island in the Caribbean!

We couldn't get the boys out of the ocean... they LOVED it!

The Caribbean!!

"Formal" night with NO kids :)

Brayden admiring the view from our balcony!

Jack didn't LOVE the characters up close... he liked waving to them from far away!

Jack watched us snorkel all day and thought it was his turn!

The boys at Magen's Bay in St. Thomas

On Castaway Cay.... in front of the Flying Dutchman from "Pirates of the Caribbean"

Our semi annual Christmas trip this year was on the Disney MAGIC cruise ship!! We went on a 7 day adventure in the Caribbean!! During our week on the ship we stopped at Tortola on the British Virgin Island, St. Thomas and Disney's private island Castaway Cay!! We had an amazing time exploring the islands, playing on the beaches, being wined and dined at dinner, seeing our favorite Disney characters and to top it off being able to share it all with our entire family (aside from our Elder Zach)!! Thank you Grandma Jaime and Grandpa Sam... we love you!
