Mannheim Steamroller Concert

We took a quick anniversary trip to Riverside to see Mannheim Steamroller concert.  The lights on the street near our restaurant were beautiful so we grabbed some pics there before heading to the theater.  The concert was amazing!

Holiday in the Park at Magic Mountain

We took the boys to Magic Mountain on Thursday to catch their holiday lights and music before the year ended.  A busy day at the park for sure but well worth it!

20th Anniversary!

Derrik and I celebrated our 20th anniversary on Wednesday!  It is so great to have such an amazing partner to do life with.  We went to dinner at Cheesecake Factory and stuffed ourselves silly and plan to head to Riverside on Friday to go to a Mannheim Steamroller concert.

Last Minute Gifts

We had a few last minute gifts arrive and had a gift mix-up to fix so Santa sent us some after-Christmas love!    Ashton got his Mebo Robot, Ethan got the drum pad he wanted, Cameron got a fitbit, and Derrik and I got our new treadmill assembled!  The treadmill has an iFit bluetooth so you can actually run/walk on location.  Derrik preloaded it with Manhattan as a location and I did some running around campus.  A bonus was wearing my KState shirt while doing it!  Pretty cool!

Post-Christmas Park trip

We headed to the park on Monday to work off a little of our holiday feasting!  Cameron got new pop-up goals from us so he was anxious to try them out.  Ethan passed and used the quiet house to get some recording done.  It was cold out there!

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas eve going to church (with traditional candle lighting) and the boys opening a few presents (ornament, pajamas and a new game.)  Grandma Hubbard joined us since Dad wasn't feeling well and couldn't come.  We had a lovely meal of cheese fondue and steak.








Sadie Christmas Eve Snuggles

Sadie has sure enjoyed having all of her "pups" home over the last week.  Lots of snuggles and sleeping close to warm bodies, people to pet her and of course, snacks to get in on!
