Liam is 4!

My littlest love Liam is now 4!  I can't believe what a big boy he is now. We celebrated with a small family party and he was just thrilled about his cupcakes and gifts.


He is such a silly little man!  He loves school so much.  He wants to do everything "by myself" and he LOVES playing with his big brother and Sister.




Happy Birthday Liam! We love you so much!

First Day of School 2014

Wow, this school year is already flying by!  Can’t believe it’s the end of September and the kids are already in the thick of another fantastic year.

Here’s Grace on her first day of third grade!

Typically they wear their full uniform on the first day of school, but it was very warm this year so they were allowed to wear their summer uniform right away.

Liam started his second year of Pre-K!

Our tradition for the first day of Pre-K is a special donut for breakfast.  Can’t believe my baby will be off to kindergarten next year and the Pre-K donuts will be all done!

Hope everyone is having a great school year!

Day 5, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and dinner at Rainforest Café.

I had a snafu with our fastpasses to meet Anna and Elsa.  So Grace and I woke up super early for Extra Magic Hours, and headed off the to MK to be one of the first in line for the princesses.  We had a blast and it was so fun sharing that special time with her!

It was such an amazing trip and we were sad to see it end!  But we are looking forward to the day we can return, and like Mickey always says, “See ya real soon!”
