Christmas Time is Here!!!

Here is our cute little tree! Even though it's small, we think it is adorable and we love our little tree!

Da moose, da moose!

Here's our first Christmas ornament! We still have yet to put a picture in it though. :)

This is Melissa's ornament! She loves Tinkerbell, but the best part about the ornament is that the wings light up and change color!!!!! How cool is that?!?!

This is Brandon's Jiminey Cricket ornament! We thought this one suited Brandon the best!

This is our Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus Willowtree ornament we got last year! It's beautiful!

Here is one of Melissa's favorite ornaments! She got it when she was a baby and has had it her whole life! (And it looks like the rocking horse has almost had it too!)

Here is one of Brandon's favorites that he recieved when he was two years old! How cute!

This is our beautiful nativity that we receieved from Uncle Brad and Aunt Juanita last year for Christmas! We love it! :)

Wonderful Town!

And it certainly was! Melissa was invovled in a play here in the community. The play was called "Wonderful Town" where she played the role of Helen! It was really fun and Melissa was happy to be back on the stage. :)

Theater people are crazy! And entertaining...duh...

Melissa's family came to see the show! What a wonderful family! It was soooo good to see them! (Michael never passes up an opportunity to get his sugar in!)

Make-up! It's showtime!

A kiss for the winner!

Disney On Ice!

We went to Disney On Ice: 100 Years of Magic, and it certainly was magical! ;) We had a wonderful time, and here are some of the awesome pictures we were able to get! Enjoy!

Look at that pretty castle stage! :)

Mickey, Mini, Donald, Goofy, and Chip and Dale opened act one. We thought it was amazing that anyone could skate around in those costumes!

Aladdin came on next, and it was really neat to watch the Geanie duplicate! They were really good! :)

It's us!

Here is Beauty and the Beast!

This was one of my favorite parts! The castle rotated around to make the Small World castle and they had skaters from all around the world in the most amazing blue and white cultural clothing! Loved it!

Then they turned out the lights and turned Small World into an ice skating parade! :)

Here are the army soldiers from Toy Story! They looked sooooooooo cool!

This is Woody and Buzz, in a not very good and blurry picture...

Here are all the Disney Princesses and Princes! Well, almost. I guess that Sleeping Beauty was injured the night performance before, so she and Prince Phillip weren't present.

Cinderella and Prince Charming skating away!

Mulan was another favorite part!

At the end of Mulan, a big Chinese dragon of Mushu came out! That was cool!

This is the Mickey Mouse March! "Mickey Mouse- DONALD DUCK!- Mickey Mouse- DONALD DUCK!" lol, love it!

Here's everyone at the end! We also tried to get pictures of the Finding Nemo crew, but this was the best we got. They're up in the upper right hand corner. They were awesome costumes!

And here's everybody's favorite alien experiment, Stitch!

Wow! What a grand finale!

We went to a corn maze and pumpkin patch and picked out the bestest pumpkin ever! And, as everyone knows, the best pumpkin needs the best carving! :)

These are our awesome costumes! Brandon was Donatello, a Ninja Turtle! Melissa was the colorful Rainbow Brite! We had lots of fun making our costumes, and Melissa did a really good job sewing them! After Melissa's performance and Halloween party with the cast, we needed something at Walmart, and decided to go in our costumes! We got a few funny looks, but mostly compliments! :)
