Christmas Card Photos

So, we are of the opinion that if you're going to send Christmas cards, they might as well be funny :) Here's our take on a Film Noir Christmas.

The caption read, 'Since moving next to Hollywood, the Richards lives had become much more dramatic'

Mom Perry comes to visit!

Ben's mom came to visit us...so we thought she should go to Disneyland! So off we went :)

 First stop, The Finding Nemo Submarines!

It was a gorgeous day to be at the Park....beautiful weather. 

We ran over to DCA to get our Fastpasses for the showing of World of Color. While we were there, we went on Midway Mania, and took in some of the sights.

Then we switched back to Disneyland for lunch at the Bengal Barbeque...here are two carnivores...gee, I wonder who had the camera. We also went on Pirates of the Caribbean...Mom really liked that one!

 The Columbia was docked...but we got some nice shot of her...and the Mark Twain.

 Found this little house we'd never noticed before over in Critter Country...then rode The Many Adventures of Winne the Pooh...always super cute

 Swung back to New Orleans to ride the Haunted Mansion Holiday...Ben looks scared...
then on our way to the castle we rode Indiana Jones...always fun

 Some more pics in front of the castle so Mom could get a good Christmas card shot :)

 Over to Fantasyland to ride Peter Pan...another little detail that I love...check out Captain Hook holding the lantern in the queue...awesome little details make my day :)

 Checked out Toontown...had some fun messing with doors that explode and the like...

 We did lots of other things too that we don't have pictures of...like Space Mountain(although that picture is
forthcoming...and awesome), lots of fun shoppping...and then crossed back over to ride Soarin' Over California and watch World of Color.
 The next day we took Mom down to Hollywood to see Tangled at the El Capitan...gotta love the restoration of the old theaters....

Disney floor show before the movie started...super cute...with Rapunzel and Flynn introduced at the end

 And the epic tower add on to the marquee....only in Hollywood, right?

We had a great time with Mom down in LA and hope that she comes back for more fun soon!

Things we're thankful for this week

Here we are again, crazy travelers returned from the north country :) We had so much fun in Montana for Thanksgiving and thought we'd share some pictures of things we're thankful for....

The beauty of nature

 Spending time with family....

Each other....

 Awesome hats...

Awesome cats....

And Liz's new best friend...Mr. Thermadore!

Other things we're thankful for, but are not pictured in this post...our wonderful rest of our family that we couldn't be with this week, our health (which is somewhat difficult to take a photo of), nice place to live, good jobs in this crazy economy, and the gospel in our lives. Happy Thanksgiving!
