ivy goes skiing...

My little Ivy is only 4 and of course we took the day off to start skiing!  I let Boston miss too 
{He's on the Honor Roll} and it was a great day! We Love Park City, 
It's the best place to learn,  Ivy rode the Magic Carpet most of the time, 
then i talked her into riding the chair lift, since we had Corporate passes!  

She did great and surprisingly did well without the edgie wedgie that i forgot at home! oops!
so glad she had fun, and we had our own time together.  

i can't wait for the day that everyone can ski together!! were so close {wink}

7th grade Basketball!

Boston had a blast playing with his buddies on the Bantum Basketball league. 
 Cory has enjoyed coaching them for yet another year. 
 We actually took 2nd in the championship game.  We had a great season and we owe 
it all to our sweet "Pro Look Sports" Uniforms! ha! 

once we got the uniforms from our friend Dusty, we literally won every game!
whoop whoop!

the boys are still playing in the March league and doing great! 

Panama City, Florida...

My niece Witney is now the lead in the Movie "East Side Story"  and they 
are filming in Panama city.  It is Ridiculously gorgeous there.  The beaches
are incredible!  It was so fun for Jill and I to go on set and watch her do her thing.

We shopped, ate yummy dinners and just enjoyed the Florida sun and beach in 
January!  Can't wait for the Movie to come out in the Fall!

just pushing Witney & Chehon around in Target!

  We would do our Traveling Crossfit WOD's on the Beach!

 Attempting to make a heart...

Dance Convention!

We took a girls trip to Layton for a Dance Convention where Witney, Will, Cyrus and Tiffany 
were teaching Hip Hop and Jazz and of course Animation!   Each class was about 1 hr long and 
they learned from the BEST!  It was so fun to see the different dances and the kids
would perform them later that afternoon in front of everyone.

Ivy was Awesome!! She held her own in animation and loved it!  She then did the cutest 
dance  with will that was to the "One Direction" song and it was Adorable!!

loved watching Olivia in Hip Hop!  That girl can move like a gangsta! so cute!!

afterwards everyone got to get autographs and pictures with their SYTYCD buddies.

Ivy knew that will and Hayes are cute friends so she brought a paper from the hotel 
just for Hayes and her dad to have them all write something to them.  Hayes loved
it so much!! ha!!

New years eve...

We started off our new years eve festivities with a Pajama Party at "Classic Skating Fun Center" 
with the Birchall's!  The kids loved waking up in their jammies and 
heading straight to skate!  We love it when Summer rents out the whole place!!

kids had a blast all morning, then we ate lunch and then went to play games with The Carson's!
We had balloons for the kids to pop every hour that had an activity inside!  We started off by doing a dance off with Just dance 4! {of course witney won}  then the games continued on all 
night.  It was a successful night and even Ivy made it to midnight!

Ivy literally made it to midnight and then passed right out!!  love this picture...

the magic of Christmas day...

It was a white christmas here in Utah! The kids all slept in Boston's room upstairs and 
I'm pretty sure Boston woke them all up at 7am to go downstairs. He can't help it, he 
has a lot of his mama in him. {wink}

so much fun to see the kids faces, Cory video taped while i took pictures.  I love
seeing the excitement of what Santa brought.  it's just so Magical.

Boston was happy to get a "Go Pro" camera for skiing, along with lots of basketball shorts, shirts
and his new nike free runs, he also got a new 'go lite' goose down jacket. He kept saying
"This is the best Christmas Ever!"  so sweet!

Hayes was pumped to see his new Bow & Arrow, that he LOVES!!  {it broke a couple 
of days later so dad took him to cabela's to get a real deal bow & arrow apparently mom 
doesn't know how to shop for stuff like that. haha!}  
He also got an electric scooter, spongebob lego's, remote control car, and more. 
 He spent so much time checking out what other people got instead of 
opening his own presents.  Isn't that so sweet!  love this boy!!

 Olivia loved seeing her new electric scooter but most of all she got Mckenna her american girl doll
that she was dying to get! She and mckenna now have matching clothes, a horse and all sorts of accessories to add to her American girl doll collection! 

Ivy was super happy to see her chalkboard and bitty baby with her stroller.  She is at such a 
fun age!  She loved opening up all her presents and played all day with her new accessories for 
her salon chair and her american girl doll Kit!  

  it took the kids a little bit, but every year they go on a treasure hunt and this year buddy left them a present in ivy's stocking.  They wondered who's stocking they would find it in.  it was so cute to see them all run to the next treasure spot and read clues to get them to their final destination....

which was by the xbox upstairs in boston's room.  They all got their x box and wii games they were dying for! Ivy got a new ipod touch and she was so excited to see her own pictures and 
movies and songs that were all for ivy! 

  the kids were so much fun all day, loved hanging out in jammies and playing with all of our stuff.  
We had a nice big crepe breakfast and visited with family.  Then we headed to the movies to see 
"Parental Guidance" which was hilarious!  love spending time with my family, nothing makes me 
happier!  It was a wonderful Christmas.

Christmas eve...

Started off with CrossFit for me {duh}.  the workout was named "Victoria" to honor the beautiful
teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary who was shot and killed but saved her whole first grade 
class by hiding them in the closets.  Such an amazing story, and how wonderful to Honor her with 
a "Hero" WOD!  These are the things i love about CrossFit!

I love starting our own family traditions for Christmas eve, especially as the kids are starting
to get older.  We decided to go sledding with the freshly new fallen snow.  So 
much fun to go sledding, even if it was a bit windy. We were just super excited to 
be having a white christmas! 
after sledding we went to the Carson's for their famous Christmas Eve feast.  
We ate Tyler's yummy shrimp and prime rib.  It was so good! 
then we decorated some Christmas cookies, where Cory and Witney got a little bit
cometitive! ha!  

right before we went to bed, the kids always open their cousins gifts from the Johnson side,
Hayes got the coolest fort making kit from his cousin Savannah so they decided to make 
a Christmas Eve fort before bed while they watched Home Alone 2 
{our favorite christmas movie}
