Arrowhead Cabin and Christmas Lights

On Saturday we went up to my parents cabin in Arrowhead (the one that almost burnt down in the So Cal fires) to do some sledding and have a nice family dinner. My brothers family, my sister and my parents hung out all day. We went sledding and then had an amazing dinner prepared by Brad and Kevin. When we all get together will all our kids it is a crazy time with a ton of crazy kids running around having a great time. Luckily the bottom story of my parents cabin is a kind of rec room complete with movies, a pool table, a basketball thing and an air hockey table. The kids spend most of their time down there so we get times of peace but for the most part, it is a crazy time.


Here are pictures of the kids sledding and swinging on a tree swing.
Cute picture of my dad and Mia!

Cute picture of my mom and Mia.
These pictures are so darn cute. Mia and her cousin Haileyanna were totally playing together at the cabin. I cannot believe how well they interact. Mia was totally playing with Hailey and they were interacting really well. I don't really remember with the boys if they interacted with other kids at a year but Mia totally does. Maybe it is a girl thing but it is so cute and they really had a ton of fun.
This first video is of the girls and my mom playing on the stairs at the cabin. Mia has learned a new wave-- the pageant wave--very funny.

Tonight we had some friends from Church over- The Evans- for dinner. After dinner we went to see the Christmas lights up in Alta Loma. It was a lot of fun and the lights are fabulous. This is one of those landmark things that I always wanted to do with Mia and this year we got to see the lights together as a complete family. It was very cool.

  1. What adorable pictures. If it is even possible, Mia just keeps getting cuter! She looks like she is getting so "social". I can't wait till Kailee and Mia can get together again.

  6. Oh my gosh! I love that song! Have you ever heard Paul Potts sing it? He was a mobile phone salesman in Wales and entered Britains Got Talent and won. Here's his first appearance:

  10. Hi Christy,
    Your folk's place in Arrowhead is almost the exact replica of my folk's place in Arrowhead. The only difference would be that we have a buffalo head, elk head, and 2 ram heads above the fireplace.
    You look like you all have a wonderful time when you are together!
