I can’t believe how much we have all changed the last couple of years. I remember when we used to have a huge Christmas party with all the girls, exchange our gifts, and have a big sleepover. Now we are having babies, buying houses, or graduating college. Change is good though :) It’s been so much fun to watch everyone grow up (myself included) I love these girls with all my heart and can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of us.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Being able to see this Castle lit up every night, really put you in the Christmas Spirit. Plus they did an amazing fireworks show at night called "Believe in the Magic". It was so good, the music even made me cry :)
My highlight of the trip :) We hadn't seen Micky Mouse the entire time we were there. Anytime we saw the other characters, their lines we sooo long to get a picture. But not this night...I spied with my little eye MICKEY walked out of a gate to come greet everyone. I ran over there and was able to get this picture with him. Silly as it sounds, I was so HAPPY! I haven't got a picture with Mickey in many many years! and this is the Christmas Mickey Mouse...there is a difference :)

This year we spent our Thanksgiving holiday with the Taggart side of the family (John’s mom’s side for those of you who don’t know) I LOVE when I get to see all these people which isn’t as often lately. Grandma Betty has almost been gone a year and she was truly the glue to this family. Not all the siblings were there, but most were and it was so much fun to catch up with everyone. This year, Uncle Ron rented out his church for use to hold this grand event. When you get together with the Taggart’s, you need a big area like a church because usually there are about 80 people there! When we first arrived the boys through the football around in the gym and also shot some hoops. It was way too cold to have a Turkey Bowl…pretty sure it’s always colder in Herriman then anywhere else in the valley. The high this year was only 18 degrees! BURRRR
After our wonderful Thanksgiving Day lunch, each table was to stand up and tell the others what’s been happening in their family. We really don’t have much going on in ours so we of course had to make it sound exciting…ha ha Carol told everyone that we may try to start having children soon. Everyone thought we were making an announcement! OOPS! :) Lets face it…to stand up and say “Randi and John and going to school full-time and working full-time” isn’t as exciting as “Randi and John are planning on having children soon” right?! Anywho… After our little update on everyone we cleaned up lunch and played games.
Since we were right by my parent’s house, we stopped by and said hi for a bit, then stopped at my cousin Amber’s house so John could see her cute little twins. After a fun, relaxing Thanksgiving holiday we headed home to pack for our Disneyland trip!!! Since that post will require many photos and all the many fun things we did, stay tuned for my next entry…YOU WON”T WANT TO MISS IT :)
(not really, I just forgot to get it out and take pictures)
