Superstition Hike

One morning during the holidays, we decided to head out to the Superstition Mountains to try out our new hiking backpack that we got for Christmas. The scenery was beautiful and Rylie seemed to enjoy riding in the pack. She really loved drinking out of the Camelback and the snacks she got along the way! :)

Character Breakfast

While we were in California, Mimi made a character breakfast reservation at Disneyland. We got to go in before the park opened and had a fabulous buffet breakfast for as long as we wanted. A bunch of characters stop by your table throughout the morning and you can take pictures with them. It was the Minnie and Friends breakfast so of course Minnie Mouse was there. I was really hoping that the Winnie the Pooh characters would show up since Rylie loves them right now, and much to my surprise, Pooh, Eeyore, and Tigger were all there! Rylie didn't mind the characters as long as she didn't have to be super close to them by herself. :) She loved Minnie Mouse and Chip and Dale...not a fan of Eeyore (even though he kept trying to make friends with was so cute!) and Pooh made it to the table next to us, but never came to ours. It was so cute and something we definitely will do again in the future!

Waving at all of the characters :)

Minnie was trying really hard to help Rylie and Eeyore become friends...yeah, not so much!

Christmas #2

We headed out to California bright and early the day after Christmas to celebrate with the Juarez clan. We arrived mid-morning and headed to Helen's house to have Christmas. Needless to say, Rylie was once again very spoiled! We all had a blast opening gifts and relaxing that afternoon before heading to, where else, but Disneyland! It was pretty crowded so we stayed in California Adventure, but it was fun to be there all together!

Christmas Day 2011

This was the first Christmas morning that we started off in our own house since we got married, so it was different and so fun! Rylie slept in a little bit due to the festivities the night before, but we eventually woke up, read the Christmas story, and finally started the gifts with her stocking. I probably could have stopped shopping after her stocking was filled since she loved everything in her stocking and spent quite a lot of time playing with those items. :) My parents and Grandma came over about 9 for more gifts and breakfast. Jeff and Laura joined us later and then we all headed over to my Great Aunt Mary's house for lunch. That night, we went to my parents house for the Perkins family Christmas. Whew! It was a full, but very fun day.

Modeling her princess shoes!

She loved her kitchen!

Playing with cousins.

The chaotic and super fun Perkins family Christmas!

She loved her baby stroller. She spent most of the evening pushing it all over my parents house.
