I have been so terrible about this blog.  I don't know why I can't seem to keep up.  Maybe because every time I try to get on the computer, I have a little person wanting to help me.  Makes it hard.
Since the last time I wrote, we went to DISNEY WORLD!!  My baby got to meet his idols!!  We went to Disney the second week in December for my mother in law's birthday.  She wanted to do something big and exciting for such an important birthday.  We went along with Doug's parents and his sister and her family.  Zach had an awful time on the flight down (he was starting with a cold), but was able to fall asleep and wake up happy when we arrived.  

Waiting for everyone to get to the airport

He finally fell asleep on the plane...poor baby.

When we arrived in Orlando, we got on the Disney Magical Express!  It's a bus that takes you to and from your resort/airport.

riding to our resort!

We stayed at the Contemporary Resort.  I believe it was one of the very first resorts built on the property, but you wouldn't be able to tell that based on the remodel that they've done.  It was pretty cool.  The monorail came right through our resort...RIGHT THROUGH.  Hear me?  Not the resort.  The kids thought it was pretty neat..and it was.

Look what was in our room when we arrived!

The night we got there, we went to the Boardwalk area for Charlene's birthday dinner.  We ate at Cat Cora's restaurant Kouzzina.  Very Mediterranean.  Very good.

I would have taken more pictures, but the camera was on the fritz.  Wanna take a guess on why?  It has to do with a certain little boy.
The next morning we had a character breakfast at Ohana's in the Polynesian Resort.  "Ohana means family".  Zach wasn't too sure about Lilo and Stitch, but he was IN LOVE when he saw the Mickey characters.

Charlene and Stitch

The only character at this breakfast that was aloud to touch her.  She hid under the table , armed with a fork, when the others came around.

he sees Mickey for the first time!

"luh chooo".
After breakfast we went to Magic Kingdom.  All of the parks are great, but this one is my favorite.  I loved how they all looked decorated for Christmas.

this is how he spent meal time

Doug and I took Zach to a character breakfast in our hotel one 7am

look how happy he looks!!

are those googly eyes I see?  

We had an amazing time in Disney and I can't wait to go back!!  Before I had Zach, I had it in my head that I wouldn't do character themes in the kids rooms or dress them with little characters on their clothes, but now I've come to realize that I AM that mom...within reason.  He loves it and that's why I do it.  Plus, he looks so darn cute!!

We had a pretty low key Christmas this year.  We were all so tired and spent from our Disney trip.  Doug also had to work, so that put a damper on it.  We spent some time with both of our families, which was nice.  I love family time.  Zach got a tricycle from my cousin Susan for Christmas.  It's one of those Radio Flyer tricycle's that has a detachable pole for the parents to help push them.  He loves it!  Some of his other favorites were his painting supplies, a talking Buzz and Jessie and a Mr. Potato Head.  The boy loves his Toy Story.

Doug finished applying to his graduate school choices.  Now we wait.  I despise waiting.  I just want to know so I know where we stand.  I'm a planner.  I like to have my ducks in a row.

I think that's all for now.
Until the next post!
