Bass Pro Shop

Bass Pro Shop in Rancho Cucamonga does free photos with Santa during December. You get a free 5x7 and can order more if you want. You can also take your own camera in and took photos, which is what we did. Joel got there early and got 2 tickets for the time slot we wanted , while I picked up the kids from Tanya and took them back to my work and got them ready in the bathroom. We met Daddy at Bass, and while Joel and Ryan waited in line, I watched Laura while she went on the free merry-go-round. Of course all the animals were bears, reindeer etc, just what you would expect at Bass! The Santa was AMAZING! He was in a closed room so it wasn't noisy, and he was so kind and gracious. I had been prepping her for a while, and she met Santa at the ward party, but I wanted these photos to be perfect, and they are!
Waiting for our turn to meet Santa
I love Ryan's goofy smile!

Ward Christmas Party

We had a great time at the ward Christmas party. Laura and Ryan enjoyed meeting Santa and getting a candy cane! We brought our Christmas tree, fake with pre-strung lights, (thanks Steve!) to the party where I hung "ornaments" of all the primary kids. I took their photo, cut into a circle, and tied with red yard. They looked great! At the end of the night everyone took their photo home. (Too bad I didn't get a picture of it)
Don't you love Laura's pink cowgirl boots with her Christmas dress? (one of her Christmas dresses?)

Mama & Ryan's Santa Suit

I love my snuggly bear, such a cute smile! He makes a perfect Snata with his roly-poly cheeks!

Nommie & Ryan's Santa Suit

So Sweet!! We are at Nommie and Papa's house in Lake Arrowhead before Nommie left to pick up Kelly in Urugay from her mission.

Ugly sweater party

We went to the Comstocks for an Ugly Sweater party. I borrowed mine from Briana at work and Joel bought his from Goodwill. I had some white flannel and we cut up snowflakes (those are Way Harder than you would think!) and Joel poured red sprinkles on the tape when he put them on the sweater. It was fun to see everyone's sweaters!

Grandpa and Gamze

Grandpa and Ryan: 2 guys with blue eyes!

Laura and Gamze in the matching jammies, too cute!

LA Auto Show

Joel got free tickets to the LA Auto Show. This was our 6th year that we have gone; suprising? Not really, Joel loves looking at all the cars. He found his dream truck, a 4 door diesel long bed.

Laura and I enjoyed the new Beetle.

While Joel pushed sleeping Ryan in the stroller, Laura enjoyed playing on the bouncers that were set up in the corner. She played on those for about 45 minutes! She feel asleep as soon as we got in the car to go home!

Knotts Berry Farm

We had a fun time at Knott's Berry Farm wth Gramps and Grams for Vetran's Day! Thank you for taking us, we appreciated spending the day with you!
