Christmas and Disneyland

This Holiday was the best!
Steven and I got to go to Disneyland, Visit with family and hang out with great friends!

Of course the highlight of our month was in fact Disneyland!
We had such a wonderful time together and of course what is more magical than Disneyland? Well thats Disneyland in December!
We were so excited for the fireworks, parades, Santa, Lights, and of course they make it snow every night! I couldn't even wait!

We drove to California to find this waiting for us....


We tried to stay as positive as we could but it was real hard! We spent our first day in Universal Studios and got to me some great characters! They had a little place where they had snow, but they didn't hold their tree lighting ceremony :(

We spent the other two days in Disney and it was a tad bit miserable... No fireworks, No making it snow,No Parades, No Santa... It was very sad! We made the most of it though by riding all our favorite rides and enjoying the Christmas things that were still open!

Steven has the best hookups ever... His uncle designed fountains and put one in Disney world (as well as the one at Bellagio) So he has a membership at this super secret restaurant in the Disneyland park and we got to go eat there! It's called Club 33 and nobody even knows this place exists and we were so glad to get out if the rain! The next time you go to Disneyland, walk down the New Orleans square street, and look to your left right after the exit of the Pirates ride. Its this completely unmarked door except for the number 33. They do such a good job of hiding it because all the little shops around it are numbered as if it was just part of the street! The cute thing is, its called club 33 because thats what Walt's house address was! I took pictures of the square from inside the restaurant as well as where it is hidden in the square! It was such amazing food and did I mention lunch cost $72? But not to worry! Because with your reservation to this marvelous restaurant you actually get into the park for free. Such an awesome deal! and we had a blast!

The best ride that changed for Christmas was the Haunted Mansion. They changed it into the Nightmare Before Christmas! I tried real hard to take some pictures of the ride but they didn't really work... Steven really enjoyed it though! (Thats a lot for him because he HATES that movie.) It's a Small World was also changed. It was so cute! and once again, Steven said it was actually bearable!

We also saw this amazing show called World Of Color which is now at California Adventures and we highly recommend you see it!

Even thought we were wet the entire time we still had such a good time and we just loved spending time together away from school and work!

This was the last view of Disney we saw before we left. :)

I wasn't so great about taking pictures of Christmas day. We had such a great day though! Steven is so good to me... He got me a PHONE and a SEWING MACHINE! I got him lame clothes... We had a blast seeing the family and traveling all over Utah just like the movie Four Christmases. We are so lucky to have such an amazing family too!

Happy Holidays Everyone!

What a Weekend.

We had such a great weekend!

There was THANKSGIVING at Grandma Fletchers.
BLACK FRIDAY shopping!!!
Football Games.
Jazz Games.
and a whole lot of hanging out!

We had a LOT of people at Grandma's!

(This game was actually pretty awful. Super Super cold, nobody scored a point, and it was slow for 3 and a half ours of the game! but we are happy they won.)

At the beginning of the holiday weekend my step dad Jared had a brain operation because eleven years ago he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and every year he gets it checked out. This year they said it actually was growing and they needed to do a biopsy to see what further action they needed to take. We felt so bad for him because his tumor is actually the size of a large pear right now. The surgery went great and he was real loopy for a few days. They still don't know what needs to happen, they are thinking either Chemotherapy, or Radiation. We'll keep everyone posted!

Steven has started an internship with the Jazz, but he calls it a job. I guess if your getting paid to do it! He loves it so much! I'm kinda sad because I get bored when he goes to the games but I'm super happy for him! This was after the Jazz vs. Lakers Game.
