Disneyland Part 1

In case you didn't know...
We went to Disneyland over Christmas and had an AMAZING time thanks to UB!  He bought us ticket for Christmas...  ALL OF US!!  Mimi, the A Babies, Bill an I and himself!  Thanks UB for the best Christmas present!!!  Here are a few pics of our trip:

Looks a little blurry right?  This was taken as we got off of Space Mountain.  Annabelle was not a fan!

Even face painting is more magical at Disneyland!

See what I mean?!

Our last vacation as a family of four!!

The girls:  From the top
Annie, Mimi, me, Autumn, Annabelle, April and Amy

The matching scarves...  Hopefully Autumn will be living with us soon as she attends GCU:) Bunk beds are waiting Autumn!

Andrew and Annabelle waiting for the Tiana Show.  Notice the rain boots?  These were not a fashion statement.  It was forecasted to rain the entire day!  So we all wore rain boots.  It did not rain the whole day thankfully, but due to the forecast, the rides were empty.  And it did rain later and we were grateful for the rain boots!

The kids with Tiana!  It was so cute!  Annabelle ran right up to her!  Andrew on the other hand, side stepped close to her without making eye contact.  I think he may have a little crush!

Andrew and his favorite cowboy!  Oh, and our cousin April of course!

This was the "Ferris Wheel of Death" as it was coined by my brother.  It's a regular ferris wheel, but the gondolas are  on rails and swing wildly with the motion of the ferris wheel.  Annabelle had to hold UB's hand.

Sons Week!

Yeah me...  I didn't miss it this time!!  Well, I almost missed it but was reminded by a friend from college on Facebook.  That counts as remembering right??!!
My Andrew:
Right now, you are sleeping in your room with all of your disney "friends" tucked in with you.  You are 3 feet 9 inches tall and 47 pounds.  You are amazingly strong and a daredevil (as long as it doesn't involve large crowds).  You are kind of turning into a diva- your sister has taught you well!  You are sweet and kind.  I love it that you are the kid who tucks an aging dog into it's doggy bed with your favorite silky.  You love trains and playing outside.  You love to borrow Elliot's bike.  You are quickly becoming a kid who calls me mom, not a baby who calls me mamma (sniff sniff).  I am so glad I have someone to hold my hand on scary rides at Disneyland.  You are leaning how to make decisions for yourself and are quite outspoken at times.  You are too busy to take the time to wipe your nose on a tissue, you use whatever is closest (your shirt, a pillow, the couch).  You love animals and your sister and are fiercely protective of both.  You look at the world with amazement- the picture at the top of this post is so you!!!  You are beyond excited to have a little brother and have taken great pride in helping us find a name for him.  Your favorite is "Will-ea-am".  You have handed down your beloved baseball cap, it is in his crib waiting for him.  I am so glad I have you in my like Bubby- I don't know what I would do without you sweet son!
