Merry Christmas!!!

Well, Sarae is only 4, but it seems she has already been typecasted... She was an angel last year in the church play and this year was an angel both at school and church : ) Top 3 Santa questions from Sarae this year:

1. Why did Santa talk like a girl this year and a boy last year? (Her school must not have been able to find a male)
2. How does Santa get into our house since we do not have a chimney?
3. Where does Santa go potty? Me: Maybe he doesn't drink anything before he gets in the sleigh. Sarae: Mom, he drinks all the milk! Therefore we had to clean her bathroom just in case Santa had to go.

Sarae's favorite parts of this Christmas (besides the toys) was the candlelight service at church (she got to hold her own candle)and spending time with the family. Although she loved all of her gifts, I believe the one she has played with the most is the Tag Reading system. She is a reader just like me! Buddy and Cody's favorite parts of this Christmas were all the leftovers they got to eat and having Sarae and I home more than normal. My favorite parts of Christmas this year were all of the decorations and watching the children put on their plays. Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas too! See below for more pics!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Sarae and I definitely did. We started the day by making our traditional turkey cookies using Sarae's hand as a template (the other picture are of cookies I made for her class). Later, we had the traditional dinner with my mom and Tia. That following Monday, tia, Sarae and I spent the day at Harry Potter World at Islands of Adventure with my sister Lynne, her daughters, Amanda and Tracey and Tracey's children, Lexi and Colton. Tia and I were very excited about finally going to Harry Potter's World. It did not disappoint! The next day we went to Magic Kingdom and had absolutely beautiful weather and hardly any crowds. Lynne's husband, Dave, was able to join towards the end of their trip so we were able to spend time with him as well. See below for more pics. Now we are just preparing for Christmas. I love this time of year!

Fun at Harry Potter World, Islands of Adventure
