We're Going to Disneyland!

I'm not sure who is more excited, me or the kids??!! 

I've been downloading all kids of tips & hints immersing myself in everything Disney!!  I even paid for a software program that will help me plan my day by maximizing our time in the park.  Crazy, right? 

Typically when we have gone to Disneyland we have gone the cheapest route possible by staying in a budget hotel and watching the dollars very closely......but not this year!!

This year we are staying in the Grand California Hotel!!  They had a special deal that if you book before 2/14 and have your visit happen before 4/14, you got 30% off accommodations! 

So we are going to be living large at this hotel!  I just cannot wait!  The park has a special entrance into the park so we won't have to walk a mile just to get to the beginning of the park.  We also will have an early entrance on one of the days we are there so that we get in an hour before everyone else.

This is going to be awesome!!

The twins are turning 5 on May 1st, so we are giving them an early birthday present! 

The countdown begins!!  66 Days to go!

Can you tell I am excited ;)

A Shepard, An Angel and the Choir

During the Christmas holiday, the kids were all part of a play based upon Jesus' birth. 

Jake was a Shepard, Grace was an Angel and Caroline, well she was supposed to be in the choir, but she got a case of stage fright and could not go on.  The same could not be said about the twins!  They were not nervous at all and in fact, they were very excited to go on stage!

Cutest Angel and Shepard I have ever seen!!

Grace & Jake each had parts that their were to act out with each song they sang and they both did awesome!  After each song was sung, the crowd would clap, and Jake would take a bow!  He was the only one to do this!  They both had a great time, but Jake had a grin from ear-to-ear during the whole thing!

At one pause during a song Jake yelled out "Mom, I love you!"  That was awesome beyond words!

We had my father-in-law take a family pic of us and as you can see he cut off James' head!  But I absolutely love the laughter on Jake's face in it, so I had to post it.  Sorry James! 

New Years Resolution = FAIL

Why, why, why do I set myself up like this!!

My last post contained a resolution that I would post 5 times a week!  Brraaahhaaaa!  What the heck was I thinking??

I have a husband, 3 kids and a full-time job!  That is an insane resolution!

So, let's just forget that I made that resolution and I will blog as much as I can.

until next time....

New Years Resolutions

I remember being in high school and hearing Prince sing about 1999 and think that was FOREVER away and now, it is here! 

Now I am a happily married mother of three in her 40's and I have the life I have always dreamed of.  I am one lucky gal :)

I've never really been one for New Years resolutions, but I have decided to make one this year.  And it is to write on my blog at least 5 times a week. 

I love to look back and my previous posts and read about things that I have already forgotten.  Which is why I must continue to post my day-to-day musings. 

Mundane or not, they must be recorded...for my children's sake!
