We have tried to do a few activities to bring in the Christmas joy over the past week. Last weekend, we had Windsor for the night, and I took the girls to the Riverwoods in Provo. It was lit up beautiful, and we enjoyed a ride around in a horse drawn wagon. I made the girls stop and see Santa. . . who thinks they are too old to see Santa??
It was a nice little evening with the girls all together.

Temple Square was bustling with crowds. It was still beautiful. . . even though extremely crowded!! It felt like everyone in Utah was visiting the lights last night in Salt Lake!! We got a bite to eat and enjoyed walking around and seeing some of the lights.

We had a very different and nontraditional Thanksgiving break this year. We drove down to Southern California to support Lizzy and her team play in a tournament in San Diego... The Surf Cup. This is a very big tournament with teams from all over that travel to compete. The competition is very good to say the least. Her team managed to win their pool which is a very big deal, and move on to the quarter finals. They ended up losing to a powerhouse team from southern California, but were happy with the experience. Lizzy played hard, and narrowly escaped what looked to be a possible concussion at the time of the hard hit and fall she took on the field. One of the teams she played was overly physical. . . .it was a pretty brutal game.

We weren't able to get too much Beach time while we were there, but we did stop for a short walk and took a few pictures on Thanksgiving. I was hoping to get back, but the timing never quite worked out. .. it was a pretty quick trip!

It was a bit of driving, but we had a nice time and it was fun watching Lizzy and her team play so well together! Luke got safely back to Logan to finish up his first semester. . . And we are back to school and work etc. . . .

This last weekend we skipped the Halloween festivities and headed to Las Vegas to cheer on Lizzy's team playing soccer in the DPL (Desert Premier League). . . This is a league where they play the top teams their age from Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. We stopped in St. George on the way down and brought Grandma and Grandpa Toolson with us :)
Lizzy's team won their first two games, and ended up losing the last one to a very physical and heated game against one of the Arizona teams. So heated, that Grandpa left early. . . didn't like the contention. . . it was a little crazy, which happens in sports far too often!
Kennedy opted to stay home with a friend for the weekend, so we let Mia invite a friend. They spent a lot of time at the soccer fields, but also enjoy time swimming at the condo on Friday night.

Last weekend we enjoyed Fall Break with a little getaway to Yellowstone National Park with our friend the Parkers and the Sorensons. We took our time driving up there on Thursday, and took a slight detour to stop for a visit with Luke up at Utah State in Logan.
|My kids :)|
We stayed in a Hotel at West Yellowstone, MT, and spent a couple days exploring the beauties of the park.
