Christmas Disney Style ~ 2013

We decided to do a really quick and I mean quick to Disney to see the Christmas lights at Hollywood Studios. We left Thursday and came home late Friday night.  We packed in as much as possible in about 24 hours and we had a great time!

Finally on the bus headed to the park!

Tower of Terror...Oh MY!!

We survived

Waiting patiently to ride the Rockin Roller coaster

The girls are so so funny on this ride.  Michaela is a willing to ride anything and everything.  

Sophia kept putting her hands inside the restraints to plug her ears because the music is so load but they won't take off unless you are holding onto the restraints.  So after about 5 minutes of me and the ride lady trying to scream (she couldn't hear us due to the plugged ears and loud music) at her to tell her she had to hold on she finally understood.  It was so funny.  I'm not sure all the other people waiting thought it was funny but it sure gave us a laugh.

We finally made it to the lights...AMAZING!!!

We had a great night.

Up bright and early headed to Magic Kingdom

My mom loves geraniums and I thought these were beautiful.

Jungle Cruise

Splash Mountain

Then we headed to Animal Kingdom

What a fun quick trip!!

Soccer Scar

Who knew soccer could be so rough!  This girl has been hit in the face with a soccer ball three times in the last three games.  This last hit was bad and required a visit to the Dr.  Thankfully she is ok and it didn't do any permanent damage.  She is one tough cookie!!

The picture the school sent me...ouch!

Always smiling

By the way...Happy Fall Y'all!!

Last Day of School 2013

Today was our last day of school.  I have to admit it is bitter sweet.  I miss the routine of life but at the same time I love the flexibility of summer.  I hate that my girls are growing but at the same time I love how they are developing into little ladies!  Just a mix of emotions.
On the last day they can wear what they want.  They crack me up!

Any chance she gets Sophia will wear her boots. 
 I pick my battles :)

 The morning started with a doughnut date with daddy.  They loved it and I am sure their teachers love how we sugared them up for them, ha!  

We were very sad to say goodbye to our teachers.  We had a great year and will miss them very much.

Michaela LOVED Mrs. Moore and even asked if she could stay in second grade.

Not enough words for this sweet lady.  We have had Mrs. Moenning the last two years...we are going to miss her SO MUCH!!

When we picked the girls up we headed to celebrate with Grammy and Papa at Panera!!  Then the girls got summer haircuts.  Michaela's is so much shorter but it is also so much easier to maintain.

Sophia loves a short cut!

It was a great way to start our summer!!

Second to Last Day of School 2013

Tomorrow is really the last day of school but I wanted to do a quick comparison with school uniforms on.  They can wear what they want tomorrow so this is the last day of uniforms...

Sophia First Grade

Michaela Second Grade

I am crying now...goodnight!

Sophia's Publishing Party

Today we celebrated Sophia's Publishing Party at school.  The class did a really good job with their little book and Sophia was thrilled to show us how hard they had worked.

They each wrote about what they wished for most.  Sophia wished to have all the money in the world, so she could buy a big house, give food to people who needed it, have a pet dolphin and go to Disney World.  It was too cute!! 

I love Mrs. Moenning's child size podium.  Too cute!

Not nervous at all in the back row watching?!

One proud Papa!!!

We love our Sophia girl so  much!!  She loves to write and draw.  We said maybe one day she will be an illustrator for children's books.

I agree with Sophia!  I would definitely give the morning two thumbs up!

Sick Days

Our days have been full of sickness lately.  Out of the last two weeks I have had at least one girl home from school each day.  Last night we finally ended up in urgent care and now have lots of meds that I hope finally puts this sickness to an end!!

I am praying that with Spring comes happy healthy girls!!
