Family Time

We got to spend today with some of my cousin and aunt and uncle. It was a GREAT day and Zane loved playing with his cousin Jessica. I do wish it was under different circumstances but I always love time with family, it makes everything better if only for a moment.

Christmas Day

Our Christmas was a bit busy this year... yet so very special. We spent Christmas morning opening presents as a family and I didn't pick up my camera once. We then spent time watching the Christmas parade on tv, eating breakfast and playing with all the new toys. It was certainly hard not having dad with us Christmas morning or being able to have a REAL Christmas with him on the day it is to be celebrated. With the kids having the sniffles and some coughs we thought it would be best that Dean just go ahead and let them rest before taking them to his grandma's for our Christmas there. I went and spend time with daddy at the hospital where he is on day 3 of his in patient chemo... I'm so happy he was in good spirits but it was so hard leaving. We had a blast spending time with family at Grandma's. The kids and Dean and I received some very nice gifts. We are with out a doubt blessed.

Merry Christmas!

Cookie Time

Not a huge batch like last year since momma got home a bit late but still some cookies for Santa. Zane LOVED putting all the sprinkles on them.. I do believe Santa won't be able to sleep for days with the sugar high these will give him!

VW Christmas Party

Tonight we headed out to Latitude 30 for Dean's work Christmas party. I absolutely love the people he works with, we always have so much fun when everyone gets together. Tonight was especially fun and a much needed break.

Brother and Sister Love

They really do enjoy each other (for now!)

and Peyton apparently does yoga in her spare time.

Disney Day 5

Sad that vacation always seems to take forever to get here yet it's gone so quickly. We headed back to Magic Kingdom today for one last quick visit before heading home.

Until next year....
