Impromptu Disney Visit!!

Urgent help needed!!! Please go to this blog and read the post. They are trying to figure out the best treatment plan for Hannah and have made some requests. Can you please take a look and see if you know anyone who works of the places listed. They really need our help. Please feel free to post a note on your blog. The more people we can get to read it the better!! Thanks guys and please continue to pray for dear Hannah- pray her bone marrow starts working again. Pray for Debbie and Jim and for strength. Pray for little Lily as she is living with friends during this whole ordeal. Pray for peace for this dear family.
I woke up on Monday morning and by 10am I had decided to pull the boys (and Kaitlyn and Kylie)out of school at noon and head to Disneyland. I was not sure if we would be able to get there before Christmas therefore I wanted to enjoy the decor with the kids so Monday was it! Luckily Cass only had to work half day so she was able to join us at the happiest place on earth!

A different view of the Christmas tree-- it is just so beautiful during the holidays and just being there puts you in a happy Christmas mood.





The nice Disneyland photographers will use your camera to take pictures.


Cass mentioned that I never take pictures looking down Main Street so I put the kids in the middle of the road and took a picture of Main Street-- so beautiful!! The castle is at the far end of main street.




Owen and I on Main Street-- doesn't Owen look thrilled to be posing for a picture with me!!




Love the tree!!

Ethan and Kylie on the Jungle Cruise



Mia and Kylie trying on cool Disney glasses



Look, they open up!!





Waiting for the big kids to get of Big Thunder- climbing on the benches.




And eating a snack




Such a pretty place!


We went to the candy shop on the way out to let each kid buy one candy item. Guess what Mia chose.



Choosing her sucker





Too many choices to make-- she settled on a smaller sucker similar to the one she is holding.

  13. Precious pictures. Everytime you post pictures of Disney Land I just wanna go. I have never been to Disney Land or Disney World. How sad is that? Ha. Blake said we need to go once before we have kids. :) Thanks for sharing. Hugs, LA
