Disney, Holidays

A magical day

Friday night we had a lovely evening at Disney with the family.
Alia wore her snow baby outfit. My sisters were fighting over who got to hold her every time I got her out of the sling. She was like the snuggliest stuffed animal ever.

We got to see our favorite show.

And watch the snow fall over the dancing lights.

Kaden enjoys this more every year πŸ™‚

Then we got home & had a disastrous bedtime. Kaden was exhausted but lay in bed refusing to go to sleep. Landon had a work emergency & was trying to take care of Alia who was screaming the whole time I was with Kaden. When he finally fell asleep after over an hour & I just started to feed Alia, out Kaden came tumbling back out of the bedroom. Finally we all piled in bed & they both passed out. As I lay there with them still a little frazzled from the frustration, I realized how silly all of it was. Delayed bedtime is aggravating. But I bet in 20 years I’d love to have that night back. To kiss Alia’s chubby cheeks & nuzzle my nose into her sweet silky hair. To laugh at how hilarious Kaden is. To sleep sandwiched between the two of them. Sometimes life is crazy. But it’s a good sort of crazy.


I got an email this weekend from the nice people at Shutterfly with a free card offer from their new company Treat πŸ™‚ I discovered photo cards a couple years ago & love sending them for birthdays, Easter, St Patricks Day – any holiday is a good excuse. The only problem with photo cards is your recipients will want to keep them forever. But that’s not really a problem, right? If you’d like to try a complimentary card from Treat, use code TREATBLOGR today or tomorrow (11/19/12 – 11/20/12) on www.treat.com.

Off to make some cranberry sauce, then sweet potato casserole tomorrow, & green bean on Wednesday. That is the best green bean casserole recipe ever. But you gotta use Lars crispy onions from Whole Foods. It’s amazing.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
