Christmas Disney trip

We gave our kids their presents a bit early this year. They have always wanted to go to Disney World, so we decided to make that their present for Christmas. We went with Lisa's parents. It was a great time to go! Escape our below freezing Chicago temperatures for the 80 degree weather of Florida! All the parks were decorated for Christmas and the lines were short. The kids loved every minute of it. We spent two days there and then headed to Anna Maria Island (near Sarasota) for three days. We got to relax on the beach and hang out in the pool before heading home. (and rest our weary feet from all of the walking we did at Disney!)

Strange to come back to ice storms and snow, but we are excited to be home and celebrate Christmas. Somehow Christmas lights and decorations look out of place in 80 degree weather. It just didn't seem like Christmas.

Lizzy's Birthday

This is a little late to post, sorry! Elizabeth turned 3 on Nov. 14th. I made her a hello kitty cake and she opened presents...nothing big. But to her it was huge. She was so excited to finally be 3!
