Meeting the princesses was the highlight of Disneyland for Alice.
Belle was the first princess she met. She was a little star struck!

Look at how she raises her shoulder...what a princess.

Kaden wasn't sure about meeting the princesses at first, but by the
time we saw Jasmine he walked right up and grabbed her hand.

John had to try one of these giant turkey legs

Waiting to watch the bugs life 3D show

..... you gotta get the ear hats! Alice chose this one herself

My little princess.

My brother-in-law Richard had never been to Disneyland. So with the give a day, get a day promo going on we decided to go. It was SO much fun and WAY to short. We started off the first day with a little rain. John and I thought it would be unfair to keep all the rain to ourselves, so we brought it with us to Cali. No it really only rained for the first half hour or so. Then it was a beautiful day. It was nice because it wasn't to busy. The next day was awesome weather and we went to California adventure. The lines were short and we had a great day. We got to see Johns fam for a couple hours and stay the night with my mom before flying home. It was so good to see everyone. I love and miss you all! Oh and the one downer we had was on the last day my purse/diaper bag got stolen. Sad. A little extra security to go through at the airport but wasn't to bad. We made it home and I am now counting down the weeks till I see you all again!!

Easter in Washington

Gods sacrifice means so much more during the Easter season now that I have kids. I am truly grateful for Heavenly Father and for the gift of the atonement. I am grateful for my beautiful children who make life so special. We had a nice Easter. Alice loved dying the eggs and of course the Easter egg hunt. We made breakfast and enjoyed listening to conference. It is different here than in Utah. Its not broadcast on TV so we had to download it on the Internet. That about sums it up for our first Easter in Washington.

teething and crawling

Ella had 3 teeth break through in eight days. Poor little thing. She has been such a trooper. She has been doing a bum twist thing to get where she wants to go for a while, but this week she started to really crawl. And that means making messes. She is also pulling herself up on everything. She is growing up so fast. I love my little Ella Bella!
