With a little bit of pixie dust....

We recieved a Magical delivery yesterday......

Our tickets to Disneyland!!!

We haven't been to Disneyland in 3 years.
We literally went from having annual passes with weekly visits
 the entire 8 years we lived in So. Cal.
to moving to South Carolina with no trips
out West since moving here ( 3 years ago).

We are SO deprived. lol

Needless to say we are all very excited to go!
The kids have been having "withdrawls" since moving.
They torture themselves by playing Disney music
 ( the songs that go along with the rides)
and reminisce.
It's quite pitiful actually.

It will be Emersyn's first time and I am sure
Logan doesn't really remember much about it either.
He was only 2 when we moved to South Carolina.

We have actually been to Disney World since moving back East.
It's SO not the same.
It's actually TOO big.
 I say it's impersonal.
Disneyland is the perfect size.
It has the better Small World.
Has a better Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
 And the only Raiders of the Lost Ark ride....
(which the two younger boys can now ride)
It's quaint.

As Mary Poppins would say....
"It's practically perfect in every way".

"Popcorn popping"

The only thing I think of when looking at all of the gorgeous blossoms is the primary song...

"Popcorn popping"

As much as I love Fall and it's magical colors...
I really love the spring and all of the beautiful blossoms.
Just little pops of color.. everywhere!
The blossoms are really popping on all of the peach trees this year,
 Hopefully, it means a great peach season!

I think this is also why our allergies have kicked in pretty badly
 and some of us have gotten allergies we never had before.

I have also really enjoyed hearing the birds chirping again.
Seeing the bright,red Cardinals flying around.

I can't believe we will have lived here 3 years next month. It's crazy.
South Carolina has been a good place for our family. Did I just say that?!
Regardless of the lack of places to eat, malls to shop in, friends and family around us...
It is a safe environment for my children. This area was blessed as a "safe haven".
As told by a quorum of the 12.
 I have faith in that. 
In the end...that is all that matters.

Enjoy the spring and all of it's gorgeous gifts.

More pictures of Lunden's new "do"

My gorgeous girl !

J Thomas Salon

After 3 years we have finally found a salon that is perfect!
Lunden had been wanting to get some highlights for awhile
 but I don't trust just anyone with hair.
Seriously, I don't mind going to 'Cost cutters' for the boys but..
Girls hair? Uh huh.
The salon is right downtown in an old warehouse district. The salon is gorgeous!
The building is over 160 years old. Original wood floors and columns.
J Thomas colored Lunden's hair. He is great!
He has worked with some famous stylists....
 Mostly with Frederic Fekkai on Rodeo  Drive.
 He did shows for Loreal and Smashbox as well.
Love Smashbox cosmetics!

Needless to say, Lunden was in GOOD hands!

{ New highlights and cut}

I will add some more photos of Lunden soon.
We are going downtown to do some photography.
 Great old buildings, brick, wood, etc...
perfect backdrop for picture taking!!!

2 years and 2

Little Miss Emersyn

This little girl is so much fun!
She is such a silly little thing.
A big personality in such a tiny body.

I thought it would be fun to list some of the things
that she has been up to....
1. This little girl loves to sit on her brothers. Most of the time she does it just to bug them.
2. She loves to give and recieve kisses on both cheeks over and over. She kisses both of my eyes, both of my ears...So cute.
3. She is a little parrot. Especially when it comes to what Logan says. Logan has her saying " mama mia" and "2 hours" now. When she speaks to me she uses "mama mia" correctly in the sentence. And out of nowhere she will say "2 owa's (hours)". We crack up.
4. This girl can sing! Her favorite songs right now are
"You are my sunshine" and "Baby Balooba (Baluga)". Oh, how it melts my heart.
5. She has yet to try and climb out of her crib. Which is OK by me!
6. She is still potty training. She likes to read a book/magazine while she sits there ( doing nothing usually). lol
7. She LOVES shoes and clothes and she knows what she wants to wear.
8. She loves to strip down to her diaper.
9. She has THE cutest prance. When she runs, she high steps.
10. When she runs her (face) cheeks bounce too. SO CUTE!
11. She loves her sissy. Oh goodness does she ever.
12. She calls Carsen "Shar Shar" and we LOVE it.
13. Her little prayers are so precious and she will say them over and over and over again.
14. Logan is her best play buddy.
15. She loves to play with Stella "Ella" ( Melissa's daughter)
16. She is the ONLY child out of the 5 who actually loves nursery at church and could care less if we are there or not. She RUNS to nursery! No screaming and crying for mommy/daddy with this kiddo.
17. She is very photogenic! Have you SEEN the photos Melissa Smith took of her ( and Logan)? Magazine worthy! I could go on and on...
We are SO blessed to have her in our family.

A little song to end this post.....
{You need to turn off my music below to hear}

St. Patrick's Day fun

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Random cuteness

I take way too many random photos and then I don't get them posted.
So, this blog is just a bunch of cute photos from this past week.
That's all.

A cute girl and her pony tail....

Cupcakes...just because

Emersyn loves hang on, sit on, lay on her brothers....because she can.
It's hilarious actually.

Brennen decided to get out the boxing gloves....
it was Em's turn.
This was their "tough face".

Logan picked out this outfit from his closet
so, he could look like
Indiana Jones.
Even down to the "leather" coat.
He got the "whip" for Christmas 2 years ago.
So funny!

My little artist

Can you guess what Logan's TWO favorite thing's are?

I absolutely LOVE to see what Logan pulls out of his backpack
after school each day. He always has a wonderful drawings for me.
He is such the little artist and his writing skills are awsome!
Sorry, but I have to brag at what an awsome,smart kid Logan is!

Obviously, his two favorite things are:
Anything that has to do with Mario/Mario kart wii/DS
Buzz Light Year

Needless to say, these are refrigerator/blog worthy pictures this week!

Until next time......
