the happiest place on earth...

We had a family Disney Christmas this year - and it was extra special as it was Scarlett's very first time at the Magic Kingdom! 

Scarlett started off her trip with a happy birthday surprise at California Pizza Kitchen! She loved it!!

She met Goofy...

And went on lots of rides...

Had some yummy food and drinks...

Went on a train ride...

Played in a super swanky hotel room [=/]...

And even saw "snow!"

Even the grown ups had a chance to get in on the fun - Nick and my sister, Alana, hit up Splash Mountain and got more than they bargained for!

Poor Nick got A LOT more! 

We had such a good time... And we're going to head back down in March to do it all over again!

well, hello there!

It's been quite a busy time around these parts lately. Our little one turned a whole year old on December 8th and had her very first birthday party! She had a blast and loved her first taste of birthday cake! 

We also hosted our very first Thanksgiving dinner at our house and may or may not have actually cooked a turkey and a ham... But dinner was enjoyed by all and only a slight food fight broke out [as is the tradition in our family], so all was well. 

We trimmed our Christmas tree and Scarlett discovered her immense love of little lights - she points to them now whenever we're outside and she manages to spot some. 

we took Scarlett to Disneyland last week for her first time! 
She loved it! 
I'm going to have to give Disneyland it's own post on here so it can get the attention is deserves...
