Merry Christmas 2011

Well this is a look of a satisfied little 8 year old....he looks like he had a great Christmas, right? I think he did. He loved everything he received :)....lots of Legos and Nerf his favorite things and plenty of Star Wars to take him on a Jedi trip :).
She was equally happy with her Christmas treasures .... she loves The Hunger Games book series and with the movie coming out she got lots of tie ins. Plus anime/manga things which she loves.
Something cute to hold her cell phone or ipod....
He will have lots of fun with I am not so sure I will have fun finding the Nerf disks all around but he is only little once, right so go for it Landry.
The big boys had fun too....
Crazy family!
Michael can work on the yard in style :)
He can finally stop bugging Patrick for his Millennium Falcon now he has his own :)
Crazy drinking eye glass straws .... fun stuff!
Checking out stocking goodies .... Landry could not wait!
Ahhh they love each other, really they do, I think any way :)
Merry Christmas from all of us to all of you! I am saying prayers and thinking of those no longer with us. It was a difficult holiday for me...the first with out parents. Hard to believe my mom has been gone 12 years and now my dad. We missed Sadie this Christmas too. Time heals and memories stay so we will hang on to those wonderful memories we have. Hoping that 2012 brings great things to all and fun and health!

Halloween 2011

We had a lot of fun this year. The weather was great to go out and about. We had a Lego Man and a dead girl.... dead girl went to a party, that's what happens when you are 13 and a teen. Lego Man had fun going door to door with his friends. Dave worked really hard on the Lego costume--- way to go Dave! Hope everyone had lots of candy!

Magic Kingdom

We had the best time at The Magic is magical :). Last time we were at Disney World Space Mountain was closed for maintenance and were not able to ride it :( BUT this time we did ride it and the kids loved it. Fun Stuff! We rode some other rides we have never ridden before and enjoyed them all. It was warm but nothing like the weather in Texas at the same time so we enjoyed ourselves plus did not have to wait in to long of lines.

Later that evening we went to Downtown Disney and had dinner at Wolf Gang Puck's and it was pretty we spent sometime at the Lego store of coarse (even though it has the same stuff we have here at the Lego Store still Landry could not pass it up). The next day we went back to Epcot to ride Test Track again and some other rides and to tour the lands again.... fun stuff! Until next time....

On to Hollywood Studios for Magical Hours

We really like Disney Hollywood Studios because we love The Rockin Roller Coaster :) plus a new favorite Toy Story Spin. We stayed late at this park after leaving Animal Kingdom. Enjoy some photos from the up Magic Kingdom

Disney World ..... we needed to smile!

Day 2 of Disney World Trip: Animal Kingdom. We had never visited this park but found out we had been missing out on one of our favorite rides....Expedition Everest! It was so much fun! We all loved it and we hope to go back just to ride that ride :)

Photos are not in order as always .... started off with breakfast at our hotel having Mickey Waffles. We then hit the pool for a while and then to Animal Kingdom and then used our hopper passes to go to Disney Hollywood studios for Extra Magical Evening Hours .... another favorite ride or two to follow later.

Disney World....a little break for some happiness

Our first day at Disney World was spent at Epcot. We had a great time. We rode all the rides we really wanted to without a lot of wait time. Kelsey and Landry really enjoyed spending time in Japan. Landry got a new Pokemon shirt and action figures. Kelsey got some things from her Manga/Anime books she likes. She also got a pearl from an oyster. A big size one as it turns out. We ate dinner in Italy at Via Napoli. Wonderful pizza, the best pepperoni pizza we have ever had :). Then we capped the night off by riding Mission Space: Orange Level and let me tell you it is a must ride with Dramamine ..... just ask Landry, he did not fair well and I think we will never ride that again! ;)
