We're here!
The CALIFORNIA letters were all peppermint-striped for Christmas,
way cute.

'Ze boyz

We were all glad Brent brought his Camelbak,
except for when he drank it so much he had to go potty all the time!

Here's the story:
Mark - Jen, I PROMISE, the front is the driest spot you can be.
Jen - You swear?
Mark - Would I lie? (he he he)

Rockin' the 3D glasses

Major red eye.
A sign that we should definitely NOT be going on this ride.
They don't call it Tower of Terror for nothin!

Space Mountain, I believe. Always a crowd-pleaser.

On the last day in the parks,
when it's dark and cold and no one is in line,
ride Splash Mountain over and over and over again just before you leave.

As Brent would say, "This is an incredible photo."

Universal Studios, Hollywood!

The lovable Homer J Simpson (one of the best moments of my life here...)

You may be able to tell from my face, I'm a little confused as to why a picture is being taken at this moment in time. However, when Jen showed us the amazing, blue, purple, AND bright orange background, this instantly became my favorite picture of the trip.

Whispering sweet little nothings into his ear in Spanish. Actually, when he said, "Hablas Espanol?" She actually looked confused. I don't know how it's possible for a costume to look confused, but it was clear the character inside the suit did NOT habla.


Something to be grateful for

If only there were more of her to go around.

Born in 1963
A true California girl
Married and sealed to Tim Dawson on December 19, 1981
Bachelor's from UVU, Master's from BYU
Mother of Wendy, Shauna, Sandra, and Mark

Hobbies include:
Social working it up in Pleasant Grove, Utah
Spending time with loved ones
Traveling whenever possible
Being awesome

She's an excellent maker of Nanaimo bars,
each year she recruits her daughters to help
because she has so many requests
she ends up making over twenty batches,
and if you don't know what they are,
go discover them and make your life a happier place.

A mother to more than her own children,
Charley is willing to expend comfort, advice, and food to almost anyone.

She has a distinguished laugh that makes you smile,
and she loves riding in her convertible with the top down.

Now I just realized,
I don't know if this sounds more like a eulogy, personal ad, or mini-bio,
but the point is, this Thanksgiving, among my many other blessings,
I'm grateful for Charley.
