Fiesta Bowl- #3 Oklahoma State vs #4 Stanford!

Even though Oklahoma State should be playing in the National Championship game this year (boo to the East coast bias) we were so excited they were invited to the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix! Mom, Bob and his friend Taylor all made the trip out west for the game! Luckily we know the best babysitters in town (aka Baby Jim & Lor Lor) who were more than happy to take the girls for the day while we enjoyed the game. Here we are at the Fiesta Bowl parade a few days before.

Fried Turkey!

We borrowed our southern friends Tim & Tabitha's fryer to cook an amazing fried turkey for Christmas dinner! It was delicious and the only turkey the kids wanted for a long time! It was wonderful to host Christmas at our house this year and we enjoyed a truly relaxing day with our sweet family!

Christmas Drag race with the neighborhood boys!

Just another beautiful sunny day in Scottsdale AZ! Not sure how many kids are playing outside on their new toys on Christmas! We sure do LOVE where we live! Thanks dad for working so hard and providing a wonderful lifestyle for all of us! We LOVE you!

Christmas Morning!

Emma & Ava were so excited to wake up Christmas morning to find a new convertible car, bike for Emma & baby doll with a stroller for Ava! They must have been good this year!

Our Silly Girls! Christmas 2011

A Princess Christmas in Arizona!

Gma Lor Lor & Baby Jim absolutely spoiled the girls with a Disney Princess Christmas! They even had princess gift wrap! The girls LOVED their new Princess dresses, nightgowns, castles and more! However I think their favorite gift was from Uncle Mike this year :) Their very own "real" camera's. Ava got her favorite color yellow & Emma her favorite pink! Thanks everyone for a wonderful time and all our wonderful gifts! WE LOVE You & can't wait for our trip to Disneyland soon!

Preschool Christmas Program

It was so nice to hear Emma's teacher Mrs. Garrett tell us that even though it wasn't her year to have one of her students play Mary in the Christmas program she asked if she could because she had the perfect little girl....our sweet Emma. Emma was a beautiful Mary and said her line perfectly "i am so happy and blessed that GOD has chosen me to be the mother of his son". What a proud moment for us! Ava was an adorable Angel and loved singing "twinkle twinkle special star, wise men saw you from afar"!

Polar Express!

"All Aboard" to the North Pole! We had a fun trip to Williams, AZ, to ride the Polar Express! After a brief visit with Mrs Clause and our friends Tara, Kristen & baby Laura, we all boarded the train to the North Pole! It was a fun experience as were were able to hear the actual story aboard the train while enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and warm cookies! Santa even came on board and gave every child a special gift....a BIG silver BELL! Emma & Ava learned that Santa only visits those who truly BELIEVE!

Fun with the Wilson Girls!

No trip to OK is complete without a visit to see our sweet friends Ella, Kate & Sophie! Best thing about visiting them is that the girls play so well together the grown ups get to just hang out and chat! Thanks for a wonderful time Molly & Scott! Can't wait until you visit us in AZ & we all go to Mexico together!
