Happy Birthday Evan and Brett!!!

These sweet little twins turn 3 years old today!!! It's hard to beleive how quickly they are growing up. Each little boy has their own personality and they are very different from each other. But they are both tons of fun!! Here is Brett breaking out of jail at Mickey's Toontown in Disneyland.

And this is Evan. We were in line for Matterhorn and I am sure he was thinking that we must be crazy for taking 2 young boys on a big rode. They loved it though and we even rode it twice, more about that later.

And here they are posing in fron tof the huge tree at Disneyland. Brett really wanted that ornament.
Happy 3rd Birthday Boys!!!!

Yes I know I need to update...

I have lots of pictures to share from Disneyland and they boys's birthday party. But I have been in bed sick for the past few days. Hopefully I will be over this in the next day or two, I must be better by Friday for sure, I have to finish Christmas shopping. Once I am feeling better I will do some Disneyland posts and Birthday posts. There is special post for Wednesday that is already done and scheduled.

Happy 7th Birthday Travis!!!

Today is Travis's 7th birthday. I can not believe how quickly he is growing up. Here he is passed out on the floor when he was about a year old. And here he is now, with his cheesy grin. I took this picture over the weekend while standing in line for the Star Wars ride at Disneyland.
And here he is driving the car on Autopia. I have to say that he sure is a bad driver. He kept crashing the car into the rails, I felt like I had whiplash after we got off of this ride.
Happy 7th Birthday Travis!!!

It's A Small World

Here are some pictures from It's a Small World. We went on this on Saturday night after the fireworks and fake snow. We got to the last room and wouldn't you know it, the darn thing broke down. We were stuck there hearing the same 2 songs over and over and over again. It's plays It's a Small World and Deck the Halls during Christmas. We sat there for what felt like an hour but was actually about 15 minutes. Travis really liked this ride and Theresa said she is never going on it again. Personally I hope to not have to go back on it for about 5 years at least.

Going Back...

Tomorrow (Wednesday) I am heading back down to the Happiest Place on Earth AKA Disneyland to spend the day with Jon, Mychele and the twins. It should not be anywhere near as busy as it was over the weekend so I am actually going to go shopping while I am there. I had meant to pick up a few things over the weekend but it was just way to busy. I will be taking more pictures as well so be prepared for probably twice as many pictures than what I was originally going to post.

Just a few quick pictures...

I am going through the pictures from Disneyland and thought I would post a few as a preview today. We had a great time and I have lots of pictures. I will do another post later once I go through everything but here are a few for now.

Here is Travis during the "snow" which is actually bubbles. The last time he saw this he was just a year old so it was much more fun to watch him this time. We watched the Christmas parade on Sunday and got to see Mickey and Minnie ice skating on a float. I did take a lot of pictures from the parade and will share more later.

Here is all 4 of the kids. I did not realize that Grandma wanted to be in the picture also and I accidently cut of her head.

The Sleeping Beauty Castle at night all decorated for Christmas. I am glad that we have this new camera that has night shot on it. It helps to show the actual colors of the lights. I took a few pictures of It's a Small World when it was lit up that I will also post later.

What to wear...

I am trying to pack for the Disneyland trip this weekend and I can't figure out what to wear. The weather says it will be 74 tomorrow and 72 on Sunday, but can you really trust that? I don't want to dress to warm and be all sweaty, but if I wear shorts am I going to be to cold? Tomorrow is easy though I can wear shorts in the morning and then change onto pants when we go check into our hotel room.

I did find us a great deal on rooms. We will be staying at the HoJo (howard johnson's) for $58.25 a night. I even get my own room with a big king sized bed and no one to share it with. I am trying to convince one of the kids to stay with me or even both of them so I am not alone. Jeremy is going to stay home and play video games all weekend, hopefully the house will still be clean when I get back Sunday night.

As I said before I plan on taking lots of pictures so be prepared for endless Disneyland posts. Next Saturday we are having a birthday party for all 3 nephews so there will be tons of pictures from that too. I even remembered to delete the pictures off of my camera so there is tons of room (the disk I have in it can hold up to 3000 pics depending on the setting). Yes I did download the camera before I deleted everything.

Jeremy is working at the football game tonight and I am going to go pick up Todd since he is staying the night tonight so he can hang out with Jeremy tomorrow. Poor kid we have been promising that he can come over and then we get busy and forget. But not this time, he will be here without Emily even.

I am also in the process of digging out my inside Christmas decorations and hope to have some of them up tonight. Yes I am rambling on...I am on my second BIG cup of some very strong coffee. I bought Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer and am VERY addicted to it.

Ok time to finish packing so I am ready to leave first thing tomorrow morning!!!

I am going to Disneyland on Saturday and Sunday!!! Saturday it will be me, Jen, Matt, Travis and Theresa and on Sunday Cecilia (jeremy's mom), Jon (Jeremy's brother), Mychele , Brett and Evan will be joining us. I keep thinking that we must be crazy to go to Disneyland with 4 kids (6, 4 and 2) but it should be fun. Jeremy was going to come down on SUnday but he did not really want to go, he gets bored and tired, so we are saving the money and he will be staying at home all weekend. What will he be doing you might ask, well he will be playing video games and hopefully keeping the house clean. I have spent most of this week cleaning the house so I am hoping it will still be that way when I get back.

I had asked Travis a few weeks ago if he would go on Space Mountain with me and then I had to explain to him that it is an indoor roller coaster in the dark. He has agreed to try it and I am hoping that once we get there he does not chicken out on me. I asked Theresa if she would go on Pirates of the Carribbean with me and she wanted to know if it went upside down. I explained all about the ride and she is going to go on it. Brett asked me to ride on Dumbo with him and Evan hasn't really said much about it to me except for how many days where left until we go. While I am not looking forward to the expense of going to Disneyland I am excited to see how the kids react to everything. The last time I went to Disneyland with Travis he had just turned 1, so he was a little to young to enjoy it all. I will be taking tons of pictures and will be posting a lot of them.

The war is on...

So Emily and I are having a war of who can leave the stupiest presents on their tree on our blogs. Here is a picture of what I left her tonight. I have another one in mind that I will be leaving her shortly. Please check out her blog for other stupid gifts that I have left her.

That's right I left her the Original Poopin Reindeer candy dispenser. I am going to have to actually buy her this now. If anyone has any ideas for other stupid gifts, by all means please email me or call me with your ideas!!

O Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree

I really want my Christmas tree now. We normally get it on our anniversary which is this Sunday, but I will be at Disneyland and won't be home until late (Jeremy decided that he does not want to go with his family to Disneyland but I am going on Saturday and Sunday) so we will be getting our tree next week. I saw some for $20 at Target today, but they were small. We usually get ours from Green Thumb, which is porbably where we will go this year. Last year we got a flocked tree, but this year I think we will go for a normal green one. I am just ready for the smell of the fresh tree.

The Ultimate Scrubber

I bought the Ultimate Scrubber on Black Friday and I tried it yesterday to clean our shower and I have to say that I love this thing. You don't have to scrub things with the sponge and you can use it on just about any surface!! I cleaned the kitchen with it today and it sparkles. It even got stuff off of the stove that scrubing with the sponge would not get off. It says that you can use it on furniture too. You just spray what ever cleaner you are using and turn the scrubber on and it does all the work, you just have to move it around. Yes I know I am crazy, but I now want to clean the whole house with it. Tomorrow I am going to see how it works on floors. I have some spots on my carpet and I want to see if it will take them out.

This is the amount that is left on my car payment!!! I opened my bill for this month and was excited to see that the last payment is almost here!! When I open the January bill I will be very happy to know that it will be the last one.
