We finally saved up enough Southwest Airline miles to take a trip- so we decided to go to Orlando and take the kids to Disney World and Sea World. Doug and I went there for our honeymoon- so it is a special place to us. This is the first family vacation we have taken that wasn't to visit family. It was busy but fun! Vacations are so wonderful- they give you a change from the everyday routines and it was so fun to see the kids so excited about everything. As a mom one of the best things is seeing your kids happy- not that you have to go to Disney to do that:)

The longest we waited in a line was to see Mickey and Minnie. The kids were excited and I have to admit, I was excited when I saw them.

Joselyn loved the Winnie the Pooh play land- especially these pots of honey.

Joselyn LOVED the character. She couldn't keep her hands off of them.

We went early to the dolphin show (which was my favorite) and the dolphins were out swimming. I love this picture.

We had to take a picture of this sign for Nana and in memory of our apartment complex in Seattle that often smelled like ethnic food.

Doug is 31!

This past week Doug turned 31! We enjoyed going out to dinner and strawberry cheesecake. I'm so grateful that my wonderful husband was born:)

Day After Christmas Birthday Girl

Our sweet Joselyn turned 2. We enjoyed an afternoon at Chuck E. Cheese and then went out to eat. Then she opened presents and had cake.

Christmas Fun

We had a great Christmas. We all sent some time in Omaha before Christmas and then Doug went back early to work. The kids and I flew back to Denver on Christmas Eve and Doug was so sweet and had prepared all my favorite christmas foods- soup bowls, crackers and cheeseballs, shrimp. Then Christmas day was so fun to see the kids open presents. We stayed in our PJ's all day and played with new toys and games.
