Veggie Tales and Painting

Well, we have been really busy this past week and this weekend. Last Thursday evening, we went to the Veggie Tales concert. They held it at our church, and since our whole family LOVES Veggie Tales, we certainly weren't gonna miss out! Also, Matt and I spent the weekend painting....I had had enough of the white walls....here are a few pics!!!

Sorry for the shortness of this post, but I am going to enjoy pizza with the family, my back is hurting and I have a horrible cold and am coughing like crazy. So, this is as good as it gets!

And, yes....for those observant ones of you, that is Taylor sitting in time out! haha!

Cole & Taylor's First Trip to Disney!!!!

Well, all I can really say is....WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!! We had a "magical" day for sure!! We met Jennifer, David & Makayla at the Magic Kingdom yesterday and well....I will just let the pictures show you what a great time we had.

OH, and be prepared.....there are ALOT of pictures...71 to be exact! :)

waited until Friday night and let the kids "guess" where we were going.

They were so close to figuring it out!

There.....they got it!

They were just a wee bit excited ;)

Loading up the car and heading to Disney!!!

Taylor's eyes started to sparkle as soon as we were driving in.

Well, she spotted "it". How awesome it is to watch your children see this for their very first time!!!! Matt & I didn't miss a minute of it!

And, there "it" is!

How could anyone not be excited by seeing this. It truly is "magical".

Cole & Taylor were so excited to see Makayla at the front gate waiting for them! Such special memories were made!

I thought Taylor's eyes were going to pop out of her head when she actually saw just how big the castle was.

I love this picture of me and my sister!!! We had such an awesome time together with our children.

Not sure what happened with the fuzzies, but still a great one!

Cole kept this awesome smile of excitement ALL day!!!

Taylor in Minnie Mouse's house

She was pretty concerned that Minnie didn't have real food in her fridge ;)

Meeting Mickey & Minnie for the first time...words can't even describe how wonderful this was.

All of the characters were just amazing...they took their time and made each child feel so special. It was awesome to watch the amazement in Taylor's eyes. She still can't believe that she got to meet them!

Isn't this precious??!!! Special girl talk time with Belle.

Cole wasn't going to go up and talk to Belle....until Belle asked to meet Taylor's beast ;)

LOVE this one....the look on both faces is just priceless!!

This picture doesn't even need words....

Taylor needed just a little snooze!

See, Disney is magical! It must be~ my kids were getting along!!! And, being sweet to each other!

Towards the end of the day and the excitement....well, it was still there.

Taylor was just in full fascination all day.

Matt & I feel extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to see this magic in our childrens eyes. And, the fact that we got to do this for the 1st time with my sister and her family....well, through tears I can only say that I am so absolutely thankful!

Thankful for the most amazing, MAGICAL DAY!!!
