Saturday, September 28, 2013

Noah tried to stay awake. He failed. 

The Return Trip

Friday, September 27, 2013

Again, kids did great coming home. Poor Noah looks so uncomfortable!

Hollywood Studios

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Last day at Disney!  We spent the whole day at the park. Noah loved the Star Wars statue. 

Macy loved the Rock N' Roller Coaster.

And Mackenzie love popcorn. So our kids!

Animal Kindom

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

We started our day with the safari!

Had lunch with Mickey and the gang!

And finished out with A Bug's Life. We had so much fun! Macy loved Mt. Everest  and Makenzie tolerated it.

Harry Potter World!!

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Coolest place ever!! We couldn't wait to come back here. Hogwarts castle, butterbeer, Hogsmeade. We had so much fun being in Harry Potter World again.
We had time to walk around the rest of the park too and see the rest of the park also. They had a Jurassic Park land.

But Harry Potter World was the best!

Magic Kingdom Take 2!

Monday, September 23, 2013

Today was our full day at Magic Kingdom! The lines were super short and we got to ride everything with pretty much no wait. The kids new favorite was It's A Small World.  We went back for a nap and when we went back in the evening it was POURING. But we were supposed to have dinner in Cinderella's castle so we had to head back. It was awesome! The girls both wanted to dress up so Macy was Ariel and Kenzie was Tiana.

Noah scored a kids from Belle. 

And then since it had rained the park pretty much cleared out. But it had stopped by the time we were done for dinner so we had the whole place to ourselves! 

Macy was conducting the fireworks with her wand she got in the castle. She would die if she knew I took this picture!

Today was Epcot!

I was super excited because we had never been here before. It was really fun and had a lot of cool rides. We made the girls ride everything. Macy loved it. Mackenzie hated most of it. We had dinner here and the kids got to meet lots of princesses. 

And we loved the fireworks at Illuminations that night. They were a bit loud for Noah.

Disney World!

Saturday, September 21, 2013

We made it!! And the kids did AMAZING! They slept all night, there was no crying and no whining! We got unpacked an went to our first dinner where we got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Daisy. We rode the monorail into the Magic Kingdom which Noah loved because it was like a big train.

Mackenzie got to be Chip in the story at the Enchanted Tales With Belle.

An Noah got to give her a hug. He liked her. A LOT!

On Our Way To Disney World!

Friday, September 20, 2013

Everyone is excited and in good spirits. Let's see what 22 hours in the car does!

More Nasty Kitchen Creatures

Sunday, September 15, 2013

I'm pretty sure this a baby tarantula or something close to it. 

Birthday Party!

Saturday, September 14, 2013

We celebrated Mackenzie's birthday today with a luau party and this was her cake!

Happy 7th Birthday Sweet Mackenzie!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Mackenzie is ALL ABOUT birthdays so we went all out. First a "7" donut for breakfast, with a candle of course. 

Then Jason brought her McDonald's (her request) to school for lunch for her and her best friend Zack.

And finally Jason made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner that night. Clearly the girl loves her food. Happy birthday Mackenzie!!

New Planner For My Inner Nerd

Wednesday, September 11, 2013

I LOVE planners! And this one is extra fancy!

This Is Jason's Problem, Not Mine

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Kate occasionally has a bit of a destructive side and she apparently decided to take it out on some potting soil in the sunroom. 


Monday, September 9, 2013

Macy put this on our dinner request board. How many 8 year olds love artichokes??

Our Friend

Sunday, September 8, 2013

Me and the girls found this in the kitchen tonight. EEEK!

Sunday School Sleepover

Saturday, September 7, 2013

Macy had a sleepover with the girls in her Sunday school class tonight. She had so much fun!

Desperate For Her Own Room

Friday, September 6, 2013

Macy has started sleeping in her closet.  Not really sure why but I think it has something to do with wanting her own space. Strange child.

Cinnamon Pears!

Wednesday, September 4, 2013

We had an abundance of pears and Asian pears from our bountiful basket so I made cinnamon pears with red hots. I am super excited about these. 

Sick Boy

Tuesday, September 3, 2013

This poor guy woke up SICK to his stomach this morning. Luckily he was much better by lunch but it was a pretty rough morning. 

Sloth Mode

Monday, September 2, 2013

When Kate goes into sloth mode she is dead to the world for a good 6-8 hours. 

It's Getting Crazy Up In Heeeere!

Sunday, September 1, 2013

We had a little get together tonight with friends from church. We had pizza and dessert and all the coke and Capri Sun's the kids could drink. We are wild like that. 

Bountiful Baskets!!!

August 31, 2013

Every Saturday is like Christmas! I look forward to all our goodies in our Bountiful Basket and its so fun never knowing what you get. So far we have been able to cook everything in some way that we like. Except beets. Beets are of the devil. 

Cherry Tomatoes

Friday, August 30, 2013

So we learned a lesson this year. Label what you plant. We plants 4 different tomato plants and had a freeze. We planted a few more and had another freeze. So we planted a few more. Long story short we ended up with 6 cherry tomato plants and that's it. We have more cherry tomatoes than we know what to do with!

Ice Cream!

Thursday, August 29, 2013

Noah helps Jason and some other people clean the church every Thursday. Some pays Noah $1 for helping so he always talks Jason into taking him to get ice cream with his $1. 


Wednesday, August 28, 2013

I finally took Noah to the ENT and got the news that I knew was coming but didn't want to hear. His tonsils need to come out. Dun! Dun! Dun! At least it will be before he starts school and he will feel better. Apparently they are pretty darn big according to the ENT. 

Mackenzie's Birthday Wish List

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

What do you do when you are 6 (going on 7) and don't know what you want for your birthday??? Go to Walmart and take pictures of all the toys you want!


Monday, August 26, 2013

Due to a lot of planned and unplanned things happening in August Jason's birthday celebration with the Dickerson's and his birthday dessert have had to be postponed. But tonight we celebrated. Carrie made his favorite meal, chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese and rolls and I made a homemade cheesecake with fresh strawberry topping. We all walked away about 3 pounds heavier but it was so worth it!

Our Sweet Bella

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Bella has been missing almost a week now so me, Macy an Mackenzie passed flyers out all over the neighborhood. I sure hope she comes home. 

New Heel Goofin'

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Macy has been begging for "high heels" for months. I happened upon a super cute pair of not too high heels consignment shopping today. Sigh. It begins.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Friday, August 23, 2013

Tonight we had my Dad's birthday party an probably out last swim for the summer. 

Worker Bee

Thursday, August 22, 2013

I am getting the last of my consignment stuff ready to tag and my 1000 hangers were in a giant tangles pile. Macy spend over an hour organizing them by size and putting them in near little piles. Such a good helper!

I'm Just Too Buff

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

A couple months ago I bought some gloves for lifting weights because it was tearing my hands up. Today I noticed these are already coming apart. I told Jason either 1. They are cheaply made gloves. or 2. I'm just too strong for them. I'm choosing to believe #2.
