My favorite conversation

There is nothing cuter than this little conversation that takes place at my house pretty often.

MASE: "Ava?"

AVA: "Whott?" (What?)

MASE: "I love you."

AVA: "Ooooo, too." (Love you, too.)

Christmas at Disneyland!

This was our best trip to Disneyland yet! Ava has never been there and was SO excited to see all of the characters. When we would see somebody (No discrimination from Ava), she would say "A HUG!" and run right up. Mase was the really fun one this time... When we figured out he was tall enough to ride most of the rides, he walked around the house with a yardstick for a week saying, "I am 41 inches, so I can ride Splash Mountain!" He rode EVERYTHING he could and loved every second of it. We stayed for three days and can't wait to go back. Yep, we have turned into Disneyland Freaks, thanks to our adorable little kids who couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces. Thanks a million, Grandma and Granddad, for the annual passes. Best Christmas present EVER!

Christmas Wishes

I explained to Mase recently that Santa likes to bring toys to little boys and girls who have been GOOD this year. A threat or a bribe? I don't know. He sat there for a minute... I'm sure he had images of superheroes and transformers and the skateboard he covets racing through his little brain. Then his eyes brightened and he got a little TOO excited as he said, "That MEAN boy at church will get NOTHING for Christmas!!!"

Weekend Getaway

This cloudy phone pic represents one of the best little trips we have taken together. Actually, I don't even have a big explanation for that. I guess the conversation on the drive over there (San Diego), the fun comedian we saw that night (Brian Regan), the great company we were with (Michael, Jared, Tamara), the nice hotel we stayed at (The Westin), and the fact that our kids were safe and thoroughly enjoying themselves (thanks, mom and dad!) all combined to make us have a great time. And we love those one-nighter trips because you have a chance to get away without missing your kids the whole time. We had fun without our little friends, but we can't WAIT to take them to Christmassy Disneyland in a couple of weeks!
