a big family...

*thank you LORD for this..*
growing up it was always just the 4 of us; dad, mom, me, and katie. sadly we weren't very close to our granparents and my amazing aunt sissy lived 8 hours away. most holidays were spent with just us. don't get me wrong i LOVE my family and the memories we have, but as a litle girl i always longed for a big close family. God has blessed me with 3 wonderful boys and my sister with a boy and a girl and now our little family of 4 is a big family of 11! christmas is so fun and every year all 11 of us go to tucson to be spend thanksgiving with my aunt. what a huge blessing! thank you Lord for my family.

disneyland birthday...

for isaiah's bday this year we let the boys ditch school to have a family day at disneyland. of course our morning had to start with our tradition of a bday donut :)they had the park all decked out for halloween. even though it was a wed. at the end of september, it was still super crowded. isaiah kept wondering if everyone was ditching school. and i was wondering if anyone works?? ha ha!
it was super fun just spending the day with the five of us.

the birthday boy wanted 'rainforest cafe' for his bday dinner so we went took the monerail over to downtown disney for some dinner. we made it back just in time for the awesome halloween firework show.

we had a great day celebrating isaiah!
**happy birthday**
