My Life


I had a crazy busy week and I had just finished some huge things I had to get done and was about ready to start blogging and doing all the comment answering and so fourth, when Nick came in the room and said, “Wanna go to Disneyland?”

Now, I consider myself a somewhat sane human being and when sane human beings are asked if they want to go to Disneyland, they say yes.  Plus, I have actually only been to Disneyland once before this. Plus I’ve heard about Carsland and have been DYING to take Christian there.

I hope you guys can forgive me for not blogging much this week. I’ll make it up to you starting on Monday!

In the meantime I’ll show you some highlights!


The ONLY way he would sit in that stroller was with a “Lick” in his hand. First child mistake I won’t make again: not getting him used to strollers early on. He’s never used one, when he complained the first few times I just started carrying him.


He hardly ever watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse but was totally in love with Mickey and Minnie. Next to McQueen they were his favorite.


He’s pretty cute.


Why on earth would he pose for a photo when he’s busy having a very important convo with Lightning?


This was taken just minutes before that Frisbee came in direct contact with my head. It wasn’t a cheap flimsy one either, that baby hurt!


He likes smoosh kisses. They kind of hurt but I’m not complaining.

    I love your makeovers, but I enjoy even more is pictures of your cute son. I second that (Ainsely said), the picture of him and Mickey Mouse is adorable. You made me laugh when you said the Disney comment about how you must be human and always say yes to Disneyland.

    Nice photos. Great quality! What camera do you use? I am an amateur photog,so i always ask the camera question. I use Canon G10 and am pricing another camera, so am always curious about how user friendly some cameras are and the model and brand.

    I wanted to got o Disneyland SO bad when I was little. Didn’t go until I was a teenager. I’m so glad you got to take your son before he is old enough to realize that its just a dude in a suit. That is SO PRICELESS to a child, the Magic of Disney.

    Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!
