Family Fun.......



My sleeping boys!!
a

Autotopia, our kids love this ride. Savannah always thinks she has won even though everyone is behind each other
For some reason Cole hated Mickey this time! It was really wierd....
Such a perfect picture of Disneyland, a sea of strollers...

The new and improved Small World. There are lots of new characters inside. We found Alice, Mulan, Ariel, the 3 caballeros, Alladin and Jasmine, Cinderella and I can't remember who else, but it was fun for Savannah to try and find them.Creed is such an angel! The other night he slept from 8:30 - 4:30! I woke up panicked at 2:30 of course and watched him sleep for awhile. So funny. I remember one day waking up after Cole slept 8 hours straight, it seriously wasn't until he was 12 months!! And Cole wouldn't even sleep 10 minutes in a crib, he was in his swing every night, way past the weight limit! I just lay Creed down and he nods off. I feel very blessed!!

So we went to Orange County this week to hang with Allie, Dave, Jason, Erin, and see Grandma and it was such a bummer to see her house all empty. So many memories there, I can't believe it but when we drove away I was crying. I know it's just a house but it's so hard to let go! Hopefully our children and grandchildren will feel the same about our home.
So on another subject, how crazy it it when you have a newborn!! I forgot this feeling, but it feels like I am trying to go in fast motion on everything. Put the kids down for a nap run into the kitchen, put some toys in the toy room. Decide to do a load of laundry but realize I left the load in there from 2 days ago so restart that one. Start folding clothes then see some more toys that belong in the toy room so I put them away. Start arranging the games in the cabinet because they look messy. Start dreaming about nothing bundt cakes and realize I haven't eaten. Pour myself a huge bowl of Lucky Charms and shovel into my mouth. I mean seriously, I find myself lately eating crazy fast and twice as much as a result. Do I think if I missed a meal I would waste away? Check the computer for Nothing Bundt Cakes recipes...........start folding the clothes, after folding 3 shirts the baby is awake and ready for an hour long nursing session. Did I actually acomplish anything during his nap except finding a recipe for cake?? And did I brush my teeth this morning either???

Oh my goodness, Cole is such the little man. They are all so cute. Good luck juggling all 3... I think I can definitely wait a little while before we have number 2. I don't know how you moms do it.

I'm so glad Cree is a good baby for you. I can sympathize with you when it comes to feeling like you haven't accomplished what you wanted. I don't know how my mother ever got anything done with eight children, and she always had 6 ironed shirts ready for dad and the five boys, plus she made a lot of the girls dresses too. I think it is special that you felt the way you did about your grandmas house. It shows that you have many fond memories of loving grandparents.
