You Won't Like Me When I'm Angry

Isn't that what the incredible hulk would say? Kate made him angry by taking his crayon and I just happened to catch it. Bless his heart he doesn't get angry very often.

jack loved the flying carpet ride.

Disney Day 1

We took the big 3 to Disney back in October. Reed stayed in Winona with Mimi and G. The first day we hit the ground running, going to Epcot and then going to the Magic Kingdom until about midnight. So much fun! One thing I learned-no matter how old the kids are, you need to rent a cart for them to ride in. It's a whole lot of walking for little legs!

Notice Kate pouting in the background.

Kate adores Cinderella.
Ella.s favorite, Snow White.
We had dinner with the princesses at the Norway pavilion, also known as the home of the $22 hot dog. It was so much fun and the girls were in heaven.
Jack really liked Ariel, even though he won't admit it....
Poor Ella just couldn't hang with the rest of us.
Epcot at night, one of my favorite places.

I think the first day was a success!

Scenes from Christmas 2011

Christmas was wild this year and it went by way too fast! You get ready for it for what seems like forever then it's over in a flash. The kids had a great time and Santa was very good to them. I didn't tke nearly enough pictures and didn't get a single one of all 4 of them together. These are some pics I took with my phone.

These two little girls couldn't be any more different. In looks and personality! Ella, who was a pound or so smaller than Kate, now towers over her sister and outweighs her by quite a bit. Such sweet girls. Most of the time...

Babies in Baskets

Ella wanted to make cupcakes the other day. She said she,"really needed to wear Nannie's apron." I remember Nannie wearing that apron and cooking her little heart out whenever I came home.

Baby Gaines

After a lot of waiting, praying, and hoping, my sister Heather and her husband Stan are finally parents!! We are so happy to welcome baby Gaines! They will be in the state where he was born until everything is official! Hopefully they'll be home on the next week or two. I can't wait to love on that sweet boy! - Posted using BlogPress
