Christmas in the Air!

We decorated my sisters tree last week. We did mine this weekend, but I haven’t uploaded those yet. Here are some from Laura’s tree. Alyssa has decided that she still loves Halloween, but she may like Christmas too! LOL

First a picture of my 2010 ornament that Pete got me. He knows I love my villains.

Posted Image

He Also got this to hang on our front door. I love that my Boy gets my Disney-ness!

Posted Image

Look how big my baby is getting! Sooo fast!

Posted Image

Alyssa hung her new Ornament from Uncle Petey! He loves buying Christmas ornaments.

Posted Image

Last Year! Look how much she has grown!

Posted Image

Snow White is Alyssa’s favorite!!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

She loves her Uncle Petey! She likes to tease him and tell him he is her Neice…LOL Silly Girl!

Posted Image

Mickey Mouse Club House!

Posted Image

Alyssa had to “help” Austin hang his Dumbo Ornament from Pete.

Posted Image

Alyssa is pretty much just learning that us saying “Smile” means she Smiles. She is still in the super cheesy smile phase, but it is easier than trying to make her giggle to get a picture. I am sure when she is 16 she will just love these pictures!

Even though my sister and family were looking like actors from the movie Joe Dirt, I tried to get a family Picture….LOL  After 4 takes I gave up!

We had alot of fun. I will update with Pictures of my BEAUTIFUL tree soon! LOL

Alyssa is into smiling as cheesy as possible here lately!

On Halloween Pete and I went to my sisters to have dinner and give out candy. I LOVE that I get to spend so much time with my family! I love them so much!

MMM Cupcakes! Alyssa made them!

Posted Image

Alyssa got into costume. Her friends stopped by for a visit before my sister headed out trick or treating!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Pete and I along with Austin stayed back and handed out candy. We had soo many Trick or Treaters.

Posted Image

After Trick or Treating Alyssa was sooo tired!

Posted Image

She was the cutest Jessie ever!

I hung out with Austin while Alyssa took a bath and got into her Skeleton Pajamas!

Posted Image

Posted Image

After Alyssa’s bath I dressed Austin in his Skeleton PJ’s too! Alyssa was so excited to Match her Uncle Petey and her baby brother!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Don’t the three of them look so cute!

Posted Image

One last picture of me and my girl! She is making spooky noises and faces!

Happy Valentines Day!

Pete got me my favorite Candy. Lindor Truffles and Such Pretty flowers. Hot Pink Roses cause they were on my Bouquet and Lilies cause they were in my hair. I made us a nice dinner last night, since we were on kiddie patrol today. We had Scallops and Parmesan Crusted Orange Roughy. Sooo good. Alyssa came over at 7am this morning. My sister and her husband both had to work so we got Alyssa today. It was a great day. this morning when we were doing gifts Alyssa asked for her Surprise…Opps…Her gifts were not in a bag, just in a pile on the table. so soon as she turned her head we emptied my gifts out of the bag and tossed hers in. LOL Today was a full day. We played, watched tons of movies, had a great nap and went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. It was great! I was lucky to spend the day with the two best Valentine’s ever! Here are a few pictures.

October 31, 2009 – DAY TWO – PART TWO – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

After our hour or so in the pool we got out and showered and got ready for the night. We headed to the bus and were at the Magic Kingdom in 10 minutes or so. Alyssa was entertaining on the bus. She was acting like a monkey.

Posted Image

Posted Image

We got off the bus and plopped Alyssa in the stroller and guess who was asleep before we walked through the gates. LOL

Posted Image

Posted Image

This was our first Halloween Party and I was blown away. Main Street looked amazing!

Posted Image

Now let me use this time to tell you to NEVER EVER go on Halloween. It was more packed then I have ever seen the Magic Kingdom. It was awful. I think the fact that it was still 95 degrees didn’t help.

We headed up Main Street and was just in awe of the Halloween Decorations. We ran into some Evil STep Sisters on our way to the Haunted Mansion.

Posted Image

We decided since Alyssa was Asleep we would ride some rides and watch the second Parade. Jenna, Sandy and Vanessa all watched the first parade. I was sad to not spend more time with my friends this trip, but it was so busy!

Laura and Brandon went on the haunted mansion first, then the line tripled! Pete and Just decided to skip it and we got some water and people watched. Once Laura and Brandon were done we headed through Fantasyland to Cosmic Rays to get some dinner. We were starving. We hit up all of the Candy Stations on the way.

We saw “NoWhite” but the line was so long and Alyssa was still asleep. after seeing Jenna’s pictures I wish we would have waited.

Posted Image

Once inside we sat right next to Sonny Eclipse and it was sooloud. Alyssa woke right up. We all ate and then walked around some, got some more Candy and got amazing spots for the fireworks!

Posted Image

Posted Image

We didn’t take the tripod and i so wish we would have! All of these pictures were taken freehand.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Alyssa LOVED them. She kept pointing and saying “Ohhh whatsthat? Ohhh!”

Posted Image

I loved them too, the story was amazing and the 360degrees show was out of this world!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

After the Fireworks I took off to save us a spot for the parade. Pete said it was too hot to sit on the ground so i was trying to get a bench over near the Liberty Tree Tavern. ON the way I found my favorite Witch and her friend Minnie.

Posted Image

Don’t they look great!

We got our spot. Alyssa Laura and I sat on the ground and Pete and Brandon took the bench. I hate saving seats. I hate mean peole who get mad at you for saving seats. But I did it! LOL

I had brough glow sticks and Laura brought Alyssa’s light up pumpkin from last year. She was set.

Posted Image

We were entertained by some dead singers while we waited. LOL I am so glad Alyssa doesn’t know what she should be afraid of yet. LOL

Posted Image

Alyssa was so good while we waited. She had some lolly pops and candy. Look at that cheek all full!

Posted Image

My one goal for tonight was to get a good picture of the headless horseman. I think I did pretty well.

Posted Image

The Parade was hands down the best I have ever saw in Disney!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

It really held Alyssa’s interest! Look how hot she looks:

Posted Image

Posted Image

I love the VILLIANS. LOVE THEM! I always have. I was so happy to see so many of them!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

I love how Disney switches these out all year long.

Posted Image

After the parade Alyssa was beat so we headed towards the castle to get a spot for the Villain show and Laura and Brandon and Alyssa head back to go to bed! The Villain show was GREAT!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

What was even more great was the fact we could meet the Villains. Ekk! I jumed into the line for the Evil Queen first! I was so excited, it was like I was a little kid!

Posted Image

Then my Silly Husband went next.

Posted Image

Did I mention the lines were so long for everything!!! Next we got in line for Malificaent. I didn’t think we would make it. We were the last people who got to meet! YAY!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

After that we headed up Main Street and Pete bought me the soundtrack from the party! I love it! Then we took a few pictures and headed to wait for EVER for a bus!

Posted Image

Posted Image

See ya Real Soon!

Decking the Halls

I am going to start my decorating this weekend I think.  Our New furniture came today!  EKKK!  Can not wait to sit back and enjoy all that leathery goodness!  LOL  It is so nice.  Now we can get the tree up.  I am sad we need to have a fake Christmas tree, they are cheesy, I love a real tree with real tree smell.  This year though we are pulling out the fake one since Pete is working 6 days a week and that leaves us like NO time to go cut one down! 

Speaking of Trimming the tree….LOL…Laura was decorating hers yesterday and was standing on a chair hanging lights.  My sister is known for her accidents….she must  have leaned the wrong way and she fell.  She didn’t gracefully fall to the floor..oh no, she fell into the curio cabinet, bounced off of that and landed in a rubbermade tote butt first with her arms and legs hanging out.  What was in the Tote?  Some decorations and the BIG POINTY STAR!  She got the star right in the bottom!  LOL  She had to tip herself out and was in alot of pain….I can’t help laughing  everytime I think of it.  Oh how I wish someone would have taken a picture!  LOL  Last night I went to her house for dinner and to drop of a little present for Alyssa and got to watch them finish up the decorating.  Alyssa really was into it, she loved the orniments….The Christmas Balls through her off though.  She didn’t understand why she couldn’t throw them.  I about pee’ed my pants when one hit Brandon upside the head!

Holiday Time!

I am soo excited my Christmas cards came this morning!  They are PERFECT!  I can not wait to send them out.

I love the holidays!  I can not wait to see Alyssa Christmas Morning.  She is going to be sooo excited.  I have a small pile of gifts growing in my closet for her.  We don’t have very much money this year since we are vacationing fools and just bought a new house, but I think gifts for kids on Christmas is a must.  Did I mention my pile that is growing in my closet also has a few gifts for my other special kids!  I can’t help it.  Kids don’t care about the amount you spend on them, just the pretty wrappings and the fun of opening.  It’s fun for me too. 

Pete’s sister is coming tomorrow and I still have SOOO much to do at the house.  It’s nuts.  Plus I have all of my Pre-Cooking to do since we are having dinner Friday.

I have to go to the store when I get off work today for last minute items….That should be alot of fun!  LOL

 

Cinderella Pumpkin

While at the fruit stand in my neighborhood Pete spotted “Cinderella Pumpkins”.  It was love at first site.  I needed one, he knew I needed one and so it happened.  We now have one on our front porch!
