Did you know it's the year of the Ox?
Friday night Betsey and the girls came down from Hurricane to play. Betsey and I got to go out with no kids. We went and saw Bride Wars... super cute movie. Sat. we hit the strip. We walked into the lobby at MGM and it was all set up for a show for the Chinese New Year. It was so awesome! They had the pretty lion costumes and 2 people were underneath each one dancing. It was amazing! We took the kids to M&M World to see the movie and then on the Coke store. We ordered the drinks from around the world (there are 16). It had been a while since I had those, it was fun to taste them all again. Benj and Ava came down and met us for dinner. There is this burger place in NYNY called Broadway Burger that Benj LOVES, lol. Thanks Betsey, Mikayla and Morgan for coming down! We had fun!

Today was Ava's second dance class. She is finally in a class with girls her own age (or close to). I was worried she would freak out last week when we took her for the first time. But she got her ballet shoes on and got right in there with the group to start warm ups. I just asked her what her favorite dance is and she said, "the baby doll dance." This is one in tap shoes and they hold a doll and do a dance to the song My Girl. Sooooooooo cute!

It's not as glamorous as Benj wishes, but after Christmas he went and picked himself up a scroll saw. I'm sure he would have rather picked himself up a DIRT BIKE or something instead. But he's been playing around with it a lot and making some cool stuff. Such a crafty craftsman that Benj. :)

Happy New Year to everyone!! I'm so excited for a new year to start fresh with new things and resolutions. We spent our New Year's Eve with our awesome friends, the Larkin's. They came over and we had so much fun just hanging out. I'm pretty sure the guys had fun racing each other in Mario Kart too. ;)
Every New Year's day we go hiking. We went up to Red Rock, but hiked outside of the park. It was a gorgeous sunny day, probably about 60 degrees. The girls had so much fun climbing all the cool rocks, they seriously didn't want to leave! So hope everyone's holiday(s) were great and our family wishes you all health and happiness in 2009!!
