Toward the end of November, we set out on a remarkable adventure to remember for a lifetime!! "Where did you go?", you might be asking. We went to Disneyland Park in California!! We stayed in a Marriott hotel right across the street from the place!! We went to Downtown Disney on our first night. There we visited what could easily be the largest Disney store in the world, a Lego Land store to see our Bionicle buddies, and we were introduced to my dad's favorite type of music. Not really, actually. Outside the Lego store, there was a really annoying band with like nose flute things and guitars and wacky stuff that played really annoying music. In all seriousness, we all hated it.
The next day, we awoke bright and early to set out to, first, a delicious breakfast buffet at the hotel. After we all ate our fill and Seth ate a huge plate of bacon, we went to find the bus station. After about 10 minutes, the bus arrived and we headed for Disneyland. We found a map and made plans for everything we were going to go on. We ended up going on like all the "Mountain" rides, and pretty much everything else. Chloe went on her first "big" rollercoaster! She went on the Matterhorn Mountain with all of us! It was a lot of fun, and we are all very proud of her. When we had just started having a ton of fun, the parade came through!! There were princesses and all the other characters you can imagine!! After that, it snowed on Main Street. It wasn't actual snow, because that isn't possible. The "flakes" that covered the ground were made of soap bubbles!! They did not taste like snow. Just ask Seth. We were all beat by the time that was over, so we headed to the hotel to get some sleep before our next day of fun.
The next day, we went to California Adventures! We went on a lot of rides, almost all, but the Sun Wheel was being fixed. Our favorite was California Screamin'. The picture at the top is the picture that was taken while we were on the ride. It was really fun, but it made us feel sick afterward. We also liked Mulhollow Madness and a 3D Toy Story ride that took like an hour to get on. The lines were crazy, but we luckily had fastpasses.
The next day, we went down to Hollywood to "walk around." Mom and Dad had a suprise planned for us. We had no clue what it was. We knew that we had to be dressed nice, and it was in Hollywood. We went to WICKED!!!! It was an amazing show. The actress for Glinda was hillarious! Elphaba had an amazing voice!! They were all so wonderful! It was great, and we had a really aweome time!
We already miss Disneyland, and hope to go back soon again!!

Lexi and Seth both ran the Capitol Classic this year. They both did a great job, it was a beautiful morning and they got medals and free TCBY. What could be better than that?

Matt Drumming

Here's a fun picture of Matt playing drums for a jazz gig Saturday. He was playing with his Gene Harris All Stars group for the Celebration of Children and Familes in Boise. It was his first time bringing his own kit to a performance, and they were playing outside next to the dumpster.

Matt's Insight

This is Matt speaking on our new family blog. My mom has been wanting to do a blog for a long time, so since I'm such a good kid I said I'd help with it. As far as I understand it, though, I am going to think all day and night about something to put on it and it will slowly take over my life. That is also the opinion of our father, which is in St. Louis right now and has no idea of the sin we are commiting. So I'll will direct this to the Hillam sisters: THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT. Yeah, that's right. You people made your blogs so awesome, and we were sold after that video of the star wars trumpet player. It changed my life, by the way. Very inspirational. Just remember this as you read The Big Millington Burrito.
