Rolling it all up...

Into one post.
Time is getting away from me. My to do list is long. Blogging has taken a back seat to a degree. So I'm throwing a lot of pictures into this post and putting it all together. 

Here we are spending a lot of our time at Wild Florida. Now that the weather is so nice, it's hard to resist a nice day in the animal park. You know... catching lizards, feeding the goats and kissing the alligators. 

 Disneyworld. We try and go about once a week. It really is so fun for the me and the kids. We just come and go as we please, ride whatever we want to ride and just enjoy our days!

 We had to hit up the airport to retrieve Uncle Jeff's bag the other day and this buddy was such a good helper. He insisted I take a picture of him with this airplane and I obliged.  
 One of the moms snapped this picture of my babes hugging at Jackson's Thanksgiving Feast. Love it. 
This little sassafras. She surely is a spitfire and has the cutest personality. We had a little run in with hand-foot-and-mouth. That was no fun. But it didn't seem to slow her down at all! Also, my kids have had their first taste of Eggnog... they love it. 

Daniel treated me to a one night get away in Daytona Beach. It was so fun! I first enjoyed a 2 hour full body massage/scrub/mud facial (amazing!) Then we enjoyed dinner, a movie, dessert and a full nights sleep. I even took a super long shower in the morning, just because I could! It was so divine. 
We ate at Red Robin... a real treat. And were updated periodically via pictures of our rug rats at home (with PJ and Lauren, thank you!) here, they were loving on Sandy.

 And, it's a little ridiculous how many pictures I have of the kids while they are sleeping. It's just too hard for me to resist snapping a picture of their perfectly cute, peaceful, want-to-smooch-all-over-them, adorable faces!

A Thanksgiving Feast

I was a lucky mama and was able to join Jackson in his classroom last Wednesday for his Thanksgiving Feast. The class sang a few songs and then we ate with our little pilgrims. It was pretty darn cute! We love our little preschool that teaches us to sing about the B-I-B-L-E and other cute little Christian songs.

Visits from Dad, Jeff and Hannah

We had 2 wonderful weeks of visitors! First, my dad came out and we LOVED having him! The kids were really spoiled with attention - playing lots of baseball and sipping hot cocoa. It was just so nice spending time together. Towards the tail end of his visit, Jeff and Hannah joined us. It was the first time Hannah has been to our house so we tried to show her a good time :) We went to Wild Florida, spent some time in the animal park and went out on an airboat ride. We went to Disneyworld for a day. We hit up Downtown Disney and enjoyed the slingshot at Old Town (I'll try and post videos of that excursion). We really packed it in and had such a fun time! We always love having family come out and wish we could see them more often.
