Day #208 Saturday, December 25, 2010

Merry Christmas everyone!! Happy Birthday Jesus!
After the girls woke us up at 4 am, yes I said 4 am, we had a lazy day enjoying our new gifts & each other.

Day #207 Friday, December 24, 2010

Well we made it home safe & sound and now its time for more Christmas activities. We spent the afternoon at my papa's house with most of my mom's side of the family. We had yummy snack foods & then a book/movie exchange. I always love spending time with my cousins & aunts & uncles. We don't get to see each other all that often so its nice when we do get together.

Day #206 Thursday, December 23, 2010

Last day, Hollywood Studios, really only part of a day because we had to get back to our hotel early to catch a ride to the airport. We did have a nice breakfast with Handy Mann, Agent Oso, & characters from Lil Einsteins. I forgot my camera, so I don't have any pics :(
Here we are waiting for our bus to the airport. The girls made their own Mickey ears last night at a cool little store in Downtown Disney. I think they look like they have had a pretty cool week! Big huge thank you to my mom & dad for making it possible! We love you & can't say how much we appreciate all you do for us!!

Day #205 Wednesday, December 22, 2010

.Third day, Animal Kingdom, finally everybody gets to go!!
We are getting ready to go into the Its Tough to be a Bug 3D show!! The best show of the entire trip, so much fun & we laughed our heads off!!

Expedition Everest, a must if you love roller coasters like we do!

Jingle Jungle Parade, pretty awesome, but all the parades were so crowded!

Day #204 Tuesday, December 21, 2010

..Second day, Epcot, today you won't see my mom in any pics because she was sick :(
Today we had the most amazing lunch with some of the princesses at Disney. The food was Norweigan & very yummy & different. This was probably one of the highlights of our entire trip. Each princess came around to each table & talked with the kids, signed their autograph books, & chatted with them. One of my favorite characters is Mary Poppins, so I had to get in the pic with them!

The girls also got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald Duck, Pluto, & Goofy!

This pic is pre dumb moment of the trip. I thought this ride was a good one because alot of people were lined up for it & it probably would have been had we not chose to do the intense part of it. Long story short we got off of it & had to sit for about an hour because we were all so sick we could barely hold our heads up. It was called Space Mission & I'm pretty sure we had training similar to what astronauts go through, so if you ever go to Disney beware of this one!! Definitely an experience we will never forget!

Day #203 Monday, December 20, 2010

.The next few days are our vacation pics of Disney World. There a ton of pics we took so I'm just going to post a few of the highlights from each day, otherwise I'll be doing this for the next 3 or 4 hours! Hope you enjoy getting a sneak peek of all the fun we had at Disney World!!
First day, Magic Kingdom, unfortunately Chey is not in any because he was stuck at the hotel sick :(

After our first ride, can't remember what it was called, but it was fun. I think it was probably the first roller coaster the girls have road, & they loved it!!

Another favorite ride of ours, Buzz Lightyear ride!!

Day #202 Sunday, December 19, 2010

Woohoo on our way to Disney World!! I was so proud of the girls & how they reacted to their first plane ride! They were very excited & did way better than their momma does while flying haha!

Day #201 Saturday, December 18, 2010

...Today we are celebrating Christmas a little early with Chey's side of the family. We had an amazing lunch as always, compliments of his mommma. Of course the girls were just dying to open gifts so we did that as soon as everyone was done eating. We also played dirty santa gift exchange & had some good laughs with that. We definetly had a wonderful time spending time with everyone & started this Christmas season to a perfect start.

Makaylie & Dakota

Momo & her grandkids

We are pumped for Disney World!!

Day #199 Thursday, December 16, 2010

Tonight the Pre-k through 3rd grade performed in our elementary Christmas program. All of the kids looked so cute in their costumes. We had elves, toys, rappers in pajamas, Santa Claus, etc. They did a wonderful job singing & doing all the little motions. As you can see Taygan was one of the rappers in pajamas. In all her vast knowledge of rappers, I thought she pulled off a pretty good one! word :)

Day #198 Wednesday, December 15, 2010

Every morning before the school day begins all the elementary kiddos go to rise & shine in the gym. Its a way to start their day with announcements & such. This morning Makaylie's class did a little song & dance with a Polar Express theme. The song was about hot chocolate & she was one of the servers, hence the white shirt & red bow tie. I unfortunately didn't get to be there, but my awesome husband took pictures for me!

Day #197 Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The girl's school Christmas parties are Friday & they just can't wait for it to get here. They each have to take a small gift for a gift exchange. Makaylie has to take an ornament & Taygan just a gift for a girl. They have them all fixed up & ready to go!

Day #196 Monday, December 13, 2010

My sweet friend, Katy, didn't get to make it to Taygan's birthday party on Saturday, so she brought her a gift to work today. When I brought it home & she opened it she was so excited. As ou can see both girls loved it & actually didn't fight over it, amazing!! Thank you again Katy, we love ya!!


Day #195 Sunday, December 12, 2010

These glasses were the big hit at the skate party yesterday. I think just about every kid bought some. Gotta love 'em!

Day #194 Saturday, December 11, 2010

..Whoa it has been a very busy day!! We started out with Taygan, Meliah, & Abbey's birthday party at the skating rink in Chickasha. The girls are all very good friends & all have birthdays in December, so we decided to combine their parties. We all thought it went perfectly & decided we are doing it again next year!

Our next stop was Abbie Graham's 2nd bday party. Me & the girls had a great time hanging out with them as always! Happy 2nd Birthday Abbie! Sorry no pics from this party.

Last stop, our softball Christmas party at Aaron & Donona's house. Our dirty Santa game was awesome, me & Chey definetly got some interesting gifts!! We always have a great time with this group of couples, so fortunate to be apart of this team! Big thanks to the Bryants for opening their home up to us once again! Hopefully it wasn't damaged too bad! Can't wait for next year!

Day #193 Friday, December 10, 2010

Another exciting Friday night at basketball practice! I am amazed at how much these girls have improved in just 3 practices!


Day #192 Thursday, December 9, 2010

Well the girls bags are decorated and ready!! I wanted to get their initials embroidered, but wasn't able to. So what better than to let them decorate themselves??
I think its time to start a countdown to Disney! 10 days and counting wooohoooo!!!

Day #191 Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Happy early birthday Miss Diana! We had a great time tonight celebrating your birthday! Keep holding onto that 29 :))

Day #190 Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Awww isn't that the cutest lil baby face you've ever seen?? This is my very good friend Katy's nephew, Jack. He paid us a little visit this afternoon at work and of course we had the best time with him.

Day #189 Monday, December 6, 2010

Check out Makaylie's solar system! She did such a great job on it and we had alot of fun putting it together!


Day #188 Sunday, December 5,2010

Taygan playing the wii. Typically Makaylie would be playing with her, but she went with her bff Hannah to the new Harry Potter movie!

Day #187 Saturday, December 4, 2010

We celebrated Taygan's 7th birthday today with her grandparents, me, Makaylie, & her friend Abbey. We had a busy, but fun day full of gifts, playing, shopping, McDonalds, cake & ice cream, & the OU game! Can't beat a day like that! Its still unbelievable to me that she is 7 already. We are very blessed to have her in our lives!


Day #186 Friday, December 3, 2010

.Well she can officially say all she wants for Christmas is her 2 front teeth! We were beginning to wonder if she was ever going to get that second one out. The big tooth was starting to come in behind it & it kind of looked bad, but she wouldn't mess with it. Finally Chey told her if she got it out today he would give her $5. What can I say, money talks no matter how old you are!!

Makaylie's first basketball practice!

Day #185 Thursday, December 2, 2010

No pic of the day, I just totally forgot

Day #184 Wednesday, December 1, 2010

Taygan's busy at work decorating her birthday party invitations. It was an all night process, not sure why because it took me about 5 minutes to do 2 or 3. She had a great time doing it though & even let her big sis help her.
