Baptism Day

In December, M&M had her special day. She was so excited to be baptized and wear the new dress her Grandma had made for her. She said she felt like a princess in it. The details of the dress were so cute and the dress was perfect for her. She was a little shy to have all the attention on her but she soaked it all up. Thank you to all our family and friends who came to support her and her decision to be baptized.

M&M's birthday party!

Wow, I've been a little MIA lately! Let's just say being sick is the pits and being on the computer is the last thing I've wanted to do. I am going to play a little catch-up with the main things that have gone on since Halloween for posterity. :)M&M had a big birthday and turned 8 back in November. Her birthday is the week of Thanksgiving so we opted to have a fun birthday party with friends a couple weeks before so everyone was sure to come. She came up with most of the idea for her birthday so we went with it.

I enlisted my Mom to help me out (thanks Mom!) and we were set. I made M&M monkey bread (for her "cake") which made my life SO much easier. We also served donuts, yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit & milk. Once everyone arrived we ate the yummy breakfast, then laid out pillow cases for all the kids to decorate using sharpie markers. They had a great time figuring what to put on their pillow case. It was funny because M&M invited 2 boys and the rest were girls. While decorating the boys sure didn't want to spend as much time on their pillow case as the rest of the girls. The girls were so nice and neat and the boys played destructo on their pillow cases. Funny! We opened gifts and then headed into the theatre to watch the movie.

Of course the kids had to have popcorn so we loaded them up with more junk! Popcorn and juice for all! The kids had a great time and the movie Despicable Me is really cute. It made it funner to watch it in 3D. During the beginning of the movie I folded up their pillowcases and tied them with a balloon and a movie pass for all the kids to take home. Such a fun party and made for easier planning on my part. Happy birthday M&M!

The happiest place on earth! The day we went it was POURING rain. We were soaked the second we got out of the car. Luckily our kids were troopers and we took the time to grab some cheap ponchos. The rain actually let up around lunch and the kids had an even better time. Besides being cold from wet shoes, socks, and pants we stayed the full day and left the park around 10pm. It definitely wore the kids out but they loved it and still talk about it.

I wish we took more pictures, but we got some video and us being saoked kind of hindered the picture taking. The girls didn't venture on any of the real big rides, but had a great time on what they did go on. CJ was a little nervous for some so he and I did some things together including seeing Mickey Mouse. He thought that was pretty cool and gave him a big hug when he saw him.

I loved going during Christmas break. They have everything decked out in Christmas decorations and the lights were awesome on the castle. Thanks to my parents for giving us the opportunity to go. It made some great memories for the kids and we can't wait to go back!!
