Ready to enter the happiest place on earth.
It front of the magic castle or in Addee's words
"That's the biggest castle I evvvvvvvver seeeeeen!"
The carousel was our first stop.
On Dumbo. Charlee with Grandma. Addee with Papa
We skipped over the actual teacups however
we did have fun in the stationary cup.
Going under the waterfall.
On the deck of the boat.
Addee ate the entire bag of cotton candy.
I think we found her sweet weakness.
In Tinker Bells Fairy Garden
BIGGGG hugs for Tink.
We LOVED Tink!
Charlee gets painted first.
Addee sat so still.
Two flower fairies.
Charlee in her Minnie ears.
Shooting it up on the Buzz Light Year ride.
Sucker time.
This just makes me laugh.
Addee was so determined to pick this up.
Waiting in line for Pirates of the Caribbean .
Tarzan's Tree house.
This is the same sucker a few hours later.

The tram was one of their favorite rides :)

We spent 13 hours at Disneyland.
The girls enjoyed every second of every hour.

Three Years

How is this possible?

How can two 3 pounders grow into two spunky little girls so quickly?

Where did the time go?

And how do I make it stop?

Three years ago today at 3:59 and 4:00

Addison McKinsey
Charlotte Ellison

were born.

So tiny yet so perfect.
I had to wait 8 days to hold you and it was torture.
Holding you in my arms for the first time was the most amazing thing ever.
I was overwhelmed with so much emotion I just cried.

I still cannot believe that it has been 3 years.
3 of the best years of my life.
You add so much to our lives.
So much laughter.

Addee 3lbs.6oz. 16 inches
Charlee 3lbs. 3oz. 15 3/4 inches.
Happy Birthday my sweet girls.

You are the best part of my life.

Funny Stories

The girls are just full of funny things that make us laugh all day.

Here are some of the highlights...

Scene: Early Morning Just waking up Mommy enters room.

Charlee: Mommy I can't find Addison in the bed
Mommy: It's ok honey she already woke up and is in Mommy's room.
Charlee: Oh good. I couldn't find her anywhere when I looked.
Mommy: laughs

Scene: Panera Restroom Lady in the stall next to us lets out 'gas'

Charlee: Mommy she just tooterbutt! (LOUDLY)
Addison: Ewwww! It stinks! gagging...(Again LOUDLY)
Mommy: OMG!!! (silently)
(as she rushes her kids out of the restroom without even washing their hands)

Scene: Disneyland Standing in line with no where to go

Addison: Mommy that lady has BIIIIIIIG boobies,
Bigger than yours Mommy. (LOUDLY again)
Mommy: Thanks for noticing baby.

And some to melt your hearts

Scene: At Panera again...we like their bagels. Waiting in line

Addison: Mommy am I your favorite?
Mommy: Yes, you and sister are my favorites.
Addison: Can you marry me mommy?
Mommy: Well mommy is already married to daddy.
Addison: Can you not be married to Daddy?
Mommy: No sorry honey. That's how we made our family.
Addison: (thinks for a minutes) Ok

Scene: Mommy standing outside girls bedroom listening in

Addison: I love you sister
Charlotte: I love you too Addison
Addison: I love you all the way to heaven
Charlotte: And back to my heart

Mommy hearts these girls so much.
We tell them that we love them all the way to heaven and back to our hearts.
It melts me to know they feel that way about each other.

Wordful Wednesday

WW is for those of us that cannot just post a picture and keep quiet.

My multi-tasking stylista.

This girl is ALWAYS in my shoes.

I am amazed at how well she manages to clean and drink her juice
all the while sporting 3 inch heels a few sizes too big.

Head on over to Angie's blog for more WW.

Wordful Wednesday

Instead of a photo today I decided a video was worth more of my wordiness.

My girls just love their cousin Bryce.

They are such big helpers too.

They always want to help change his diaper or hold his bottle.

He is a lucky little boy to have so many people that love him so very much.

For more WW head over to Angie's blog.

My dirty girls

We headed out to the desert for a weekend with the girls for the first time.

Needless to say it was a success.

The girls loved camping in the desert.

Charlotte off riding.
Racing daddy and sister.
The little girls.
Some of the gang.
The kids all piled on the Polaris.
Addee in the early morning.
Charlee waiting for daddy to light a morning fire.

Filling daddy's helmet out pretty good :)
My sweetpeas.

We will be heading back out soon.

I see more dirt toys being bought for our newest riders :)

Wordful Wednesday

It's a hit or a miss with our girls and picture taking.

Sometimes they smile from ear to ear and pose.

And other times they fight like mad to get away.

You normally don't see those pictures.

For good reason.

I know a lot of you think my children are perfect little angels...hahahaha

Here is an angelic moment.

We are just trying to keep her still for a second
to take a picture with Mommy & Daddy.

She had other plans.

Head on over to Angie's for more WW.
