Our Christmas


This is the outfit Shana got William for his first Christmas. It is so cute and from my new favorite store- Janie and Jack!




William on his new rocking horse- still a little too big.

The Nutcracker


Eric and I had recently gone to a shoe store that was closing and bought ourselves some new fancy shoes at clearance prices I bought this one pair of shoes that is so pretty and so fancy that I didn't know where I was going to wear them, but I HAD to have them. Then a few days later, Eric surprised me with tickets to the Nutcracker a couple days before christmas. It was so beautiful! I hadn't been to the ballet in a long time and I loved every minute of it. Ballet West was really good. I knew Eric really wasn't that interested in the ballet (and he even fell asleep for a minute during the second act), but he wanted me to be able to wear my fancy shoes. He is so sweet sometimes.

This post is long overdue

When we went to Florida last month, it was not to go to Disneyworld. That was just a bonus. We were there because my oldest sister Shana got married. I haven't posted any of the pictures yet, so that's what I'm doing now. Also, check out the photographers website for the best pictures.

The Photoshop Experiment



































































Eric says he can't tell the difference between my fixed pictures and the old versions, so I am posting them here so you guys can see whether you agree with me and think they are great, or if you agree with Eric and think it's a waste of time.

I Love Jetblue!

Eric, William and I are in the airport today on our way back from North Carolina. We came out for the weekend just because we can. Also, we made sure to talk to the airport staff at RDU to ask if they knew about any openings coming up, because I would love to transfer when we move.


It was actually the perfect weekend to come because the ward in Raleigh was having their Christmas party, so we got to see everyone there. It was so fun to see my old friends (and my friends parents)! I also got to see Sarah for a couple hours before she was off to the beach. One of the best parts about this trip is tht my dad gave me his old version of Photoshop, so I have been playing with that a ton. I'm so exited to be able to jazz up my pictures!


We flew through New York which means I got to see the new Jetblue terminal I always have to talk about on the phone, and it is pretty nice. I wish it had a few more stores for this long layover, but it does have free Wi-fi, so that's good at least.

Will can crawl!

William started crawling last night! And it was not yet the last day of the month, so that means he was officially seven months old when he learned how. I am posting a couple videos I got of him, but he really can crawl a lot better than the videos show. He was all over the place last night and today, he can already stay up on his knees most of the time.

These videos are not the greatest because I was using a different camera (on mine the memory is full) and also grandma kept picking him up every time he whimpered. Enjoy!

The Last Day



Our little mouse boy was so happy here.

I made Brianne go on Splash Mountain with me by telling her I would go on Space Mountain with her. She hated it, but I thought it was great. I rode it three times! To get the full effect of the picture, zoom in on her face.



Ariel was my favorite princess when I was little.
We tried to go on the Toy Story ride again too, but the line was like 90 mintues long, so we skipped it.

Other part of Third Day

After the Animal Kingdom closed, we went to Epcot because it is open later. I loved seeing all the different countries costumes, buildings, and food. We were there at the perfect time to see the different shows the countries put on. One of my favorite shows was the Japanese drummers.

We also stayed for the show at night because we saw a ton of people walking in right before the show started, and we figured if people come just for the show, then it might be worth it. This was the only nighttime show we saw, but it was really cool.

We decided that we needed to stay and extra day in Disney, so after this, we got a really cheap hotel so we could come back for part of the next day. We are going to go back to the Magic Kingsom to meet Ariel and for Pirates of the Caribbean since it was closed before, and also go back to our all time favorite ride in Hollywood Studios from Toy Story.

Third Day at Disney

Today we went to the Animal Kingdom for the first part of the day. This park was beautiful. The rides we loved were the rapids, and Eric went on the Everest roller coaster twice. We also had to go on the Safari because everybody says it's the best ride, and it was pretty awesome. Some of the pictures we got were amazing. I wish we had more time to spend in this park, because I could have easily spent a few days here.


The famous animal tree



We met Flik at the entrance.


That is Mount Everest behind us.

Waiting for the 3D bug show to start- which was SO good!


These next pictures are all from the Safari and they are all real animals!








On these next ones, Eric was practicing his artistic picture taking skills. They turned out pretty well.

Second Day of Disney

This was the day we went to the Magic Kingdom. William and I got a lot of autographs for our book and lots of pictures too. I loved meeting the princesses. Our favorite rides were Peter Pan's Flight, Splash Mountain, and The Haunted Mansion. We didn't get to do every ride, so we are going to have to come back here again later.

First Day of Disney

The first day, since it was a sunday, we thought we would go to a park that we didn't think would be that busy. We loved Holloywood Studios. There were a lot more rides than I expected that William could go on. The whole atmosphere was so cool too because it was all art-deco. I think we will have to come back to this park.
