Disneyland with Grandma......

The day before my mom left we went to Disneyland (all day trip). We had so much fun we met my Aunt Sue and cousin Diana w/ her two kids (who just happened to be going on the same day as us) for lunch which was fun. Evan came and met us later that night after he got off of work. We really enjoyed spending the day as a family and we tried not to let the fact that it was my mom's last day bring us down.

Snow White ride....

So Aubree has been totally into Snow White lately. So when we went to Disneyland w/ my mom she wanted to go on the Snow White ride. For those of you who haven't been on this ride it is a little intense for kids (even some adults). Evan and I always say we don't know why Disney has to focus on all the dark parts of the movies in some of their rides. Anyways I thought these pics were hysterical when I saw them and had to post them.

If you look carefully at the pics you can see Aubree is holding her Snow White barbie that her grandma gave her. (That has been going everywhere w/ us)

My moms first time seeing Ellie

My mom had never seen Ellie before so she had so much fun getting to know her newest granddaughter. Ellie just loved her it makes me sad to think that the next time my mom sees her she will be a totally different baby:( At least we have a lot of family here that we get to see all the time:)

Grandma Joannie comes to visit

My kids were so excited for my mom to come and visit they couldn't wait until she was here. She came for about ten days which wasn't long enough for me or the kids but we will take what we get. We did some fun activities while she was here.
The pictures below are of our breakfast at Denny's and family party at the Morgan's for Aarons "Sweet Sixteen"!!!!!!!


Aubree is such a ham and loves having her picture taken. We will take a picture on the digital camera and she will immediatly say "Let me see". So I thought I would do a blog entry of some of the candid shots of Aubree.

Disneyland "Mom" Trip

Today was the Pass holder preview of the Grand Re-Opening of It's a Small World. We thought it would be fun to all get together and go as a group. The ride was great I loved how they Incorporated the Disney characters appropriately into the ride. The kids were all so well behaved and had a great time w/ their friends (so did the moms). We went on a few more rides, had lunch and almost missed the rain before it started. I think most of us made it to our cars before it really started coming down. I really had a good time and enjoyed my day w/ the girls.

We are quite the crew between all of us we had 16 kids!

Aubree and Mitchell (As you can see she changes moods rather quickly)
