Disneyland November 2009

Another trip to Disneyland and most definitely not the last! November Christmas at Disney was amazing!!!

Winnie the Pooh!

More Winnie the Pooh.

Pluto was very loved this trip!

Ho Ho Ho!

Santa and his reindeer were there too. Navey and Kenna had made their own autograph books, and Navey even got Santa's autograph. Not too many kids with that one huh?

Kenna adored Pluto. She has a little pluto dog we bought last time we were there and she hasn't slept a single night without it!

What a "Goof"!

Toon Town Christmas Tree!

Little miss Navey was so so so fun. She wanted to pose for any picture, she would try to help Kenna not get impatient waiting in line for rides, and she was just a sweetheart! Love Her!

Just in case you couldn't tell...ha ha ha, Kenna was trying to pull off poor Minnie's ears! Sometimes the excitement is just too much to contain!

In Minnie's house it is adorable. Everything has sound or lights that you can touch. The phone will ring, computer talks, table has tea with magical cookies that appear, fridge opens, and the girls loved watching Minnie's dishwasher.

My darling McKenna was a little upset when we had to leave Minnie's house. These are the most precious moments that you rarely capture! She was "angry"! Kenna tells me fairly often when she is upset "I am so angry, mom". Who knew a 2 year old could learn to express her feeling so well. :)

You can't help but smile with a little chuckle when you see this!!

Navey heading into Donalds Boat!

This was the biggest highlight of Navey's day. She kept seeing all these kids with their faces painted. She even went to the extent of asking one of the parents where she could get hers done, and got directions to give me. How can you put a price on something so glamorous? But of course there's a price, but well worth it.

Navey ran up to Mickey and gave him a big kiss on nose, everyone around got a big kick out of that one. Navey could hardly contain herself!

Woody was a crack up. I wish I would of had a video. What a goof!

At the end of a Fabulous, but long day we hit the most memorable ride, Small World. Navey loved this one the best because it was warm inside. It got pretty chilly when the sun went down so we loved any warmth we could find.

HaPpY HaLLoWeeN!!! 2009

Halloween 2009 here they come. My oh so fabulous Navey decided to be a witch, but not just any witch, but a Glamorous Witch. We had curled hair, glitter eyeshadow, mascara(which I can't resist with those lashes) and lipstick. And with the push of a button her dress lighted green with fiber optics.

And then there is McKenna the most adorable Minnie Mouse we have ever seen since Navey was just that 3 years ago. Bless little McKenna's heart for being a good sport, well as good as a 2 year old can. The ears and bow were a little on the heavy side so keeping them on was a challenge, but we did it. She learned oh so quickly how to say "trick or treat", and she would usually follow it with a "thanks".

I will hold a brief minute for your applause..............thanks. I know these aren't your award winning pumpkin carvings, but I did do them all by myself with the help of a very anxious 5 year old. :)

Gilligan's Island

Just in case you can't tell what we were for our Halloween Party, even though it is SO obvious, we were Gilligan's Island. Silas was the professor, I am Merianne, Shelly is Ginger (movie star) and Darin is Gilligan.

Kindergarten Halloween Parade 2009

Navey and her most favorite Gabe, walking in their Kindergarten Halloween parade. What a fabulous tradition that has been carried out since I was in kindergarten, and I'm sure many, many years before that. Just a quick jab to all of you who are older than me. :) I can remember walking the halls of the elementary school waving at all the moms and dads, but looking so intensely for my own mom.

Mrs. Creel as the candy corn, sure made it easy to find their class.

Yea I've been found. Say "cheese".

Sick Sick Sick

My sweet little Navey has been sick the past few days. She seemed to finally break her fever today, and after playing all day, as she was getting ready to climb into bed she says..."Mom I have ideas in my head again since I'm not sick anymore." This child has an imagination I can't even begin to explain, and how pitiful she could comprehend that she was too sick to have ideas in her head. Good news, she is back full force with all sorts of new ideas. :)

Precious Moments

So our house usually consists of a lot of noise, so when it becomes quiet you have to wonder what are they getting into. This morning was one of those quiet moments with both girls upstairs and I was downstairs. I began walking upstairs and I could here the most sweet endearing voices. Navey and McKenna were reading each other stories. These precious moments are why us parents don't go crazy half the time. :)

Story Time

These little darlings have been the most amazing thing that could have ever happened to me and Si. Everyday is different, with new laughs, cries, screams, silliness, and of course hugs and kisses.

The Reception

Navey and McKenna waiting for their Aunt Sadie and Uncle Matt to arrive at the reception.

The Happy Couple

The girls adore their Aunt Sadie and this was too precious. They had just made their speech so everyone was coming over to congratulate, and Aunt Sadie stopped to give Kenna a little squeeze. :)

Matt & Sadie Reception

McKenna decided to find her way to the bride and groom, and cut in on their first dance. It was so dang cute I had to snap a few pictures before I grabbed her.
Navey was absolutely adorable. She danced and played ALL night.

This is Sean taking the picture of his girls; Hannah and Navey. Someone mentioned that we might need to break it to him that these girls are his cousins. He was such a ladies man.
Left to right....Uncle Tom and Dawn, Ronnie and Karen, Uncle Ron and Mona. These are Karen's brothers and their wives. Everyone made it to the reception except maybe one or two cousins. It was so fun to see all the family and put some faces with names that I hadn't met before.
After a long day, and some fun dancing McKenna was worn out.
There is something so special about your little ones when they have fallen asleep on you, and are just content to stay there.

Stayli Family Farm

Sue and Todd came down for the weekend. We decided to head to the Stayli Family Farm.

We all went on a wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch. Both girls got to pick their own pumpkin. Funny thing they each picked one that resembled their size.

This was classic; the wicked witch off of The Wizard of Oz. Of course Kenna thought it was scarry and wouldn't even look at it. Aunt Sue and Navey were too cute acting for the camera.

Each year they seem to add something new, this year they had the tire horse merry go round, and a petting zoo.

Aunt Sue and Uncle Todd doing what they do best, being the most fun ever.

The petting zoo was literally hands ON. They were able to walk right in and pet the animals. They had goats, baby cow, donkey, and a sheep. I was a bit nervous, this is a little out of my comfort zone to be right there in the pen with the animals. But as you can see my sweet girls are fearless.
