This morning at school was Farm Day. This was my 4th farm day so I'm a pro by now. I knew enough to walk very quickly to the pony ride first thing so Gianna was first in line! Then I knew to quickly make our way over to face painting and then quickly over to the craft table. No lines = happy child!
Nicholas has been taking this to school with him everyday:
The first catalog was looked at so much it was destroyed. Luckily (?) we got a new one in the mail the other day. It has been circled to no end. Nicholas has his heart set on a bunch of toys but they are so expensive! I don't think one of them is under $40. Why on earth does this stuff cost so much? Most of it breaks anyway.
And then there is Julia. My good girl that doesn't ask for anything! She simply doesn't care about getting gifts. She's grateful when she does get presents but never, ever asks for anything! Isn't that wonderful?!?!

As I tuck Julia and Nicholas in at night, they like to compliment me and Danny by saying we're as beautiful or handsome as this or that. They get quite creative. My favorite one recently was Nicholas when he said, "Mom, you're as beautiful as a flower in a field of weeds."

Running off to what Gianna called "Gianna's castle" or the kiddie water park...
Meeting Minnie Mouse...After the picture was taken Gianna said, "Oh Mommy. She is so beautiful!" Now for the big drama during our vacation. Julia lost a tooth. I knew there was going to be drama when it fell out but it was WAY WAY worse than I ever imagined. I was in the bathroom when it happened. As I was walking back to our stroller, I saw a crowd around it. Then I realized it was Julia who they were all circled around. She was crying hysterically holding a tissue to her mouth. I thought she fell and knocked a tooth out. After realizing it was her wiggly bottom tooth, I had to get in her face and tell her to get a grip (as she was hyperventilating). We quickly left that area as she had created quite a scene. The crying and sobbing lasted almost an hour (but felt like four). Ricky was the one to snap her out of it thank goodness. We met lots of characters. We had lunch in the castle at Cinderella's Royal Table. I had to call 180 days in advance to get the reservation. It was pricey but very fun. The kids got in line to meet Cinderella and had their pictures taken with her. Then we went upstairs in the castle and had a sit down lunch. They rang a bell and all the princesses entered. The kids met Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine and Belle. After this picture was taken Julia whispered to me, "Mom. I felt her glove on my shoulder!" So cute!
Others we met...And Gianna's absolute FAVORITE...Scoobie Doo!! Afterwards, the mystery machine drove by with Shaggy in it. She yelled to Shaggy that she just saw Scoobie by the pumpkins. It was priceless!
Some short videos...
I also have to say thanks to my adorable brother Ricky and sweet Chieko for spending so much time with us and treating us to two yummy meals! I wish I got to spend more time with Tyler who is such a wonderful handsome young man now. Hopefully he will come here to visit soon!

We're off to Disney. I'm looking forward to seeing my brother and his family. We have lots of fun stuff planned for this trip. It will be exhausting I'm sure but I'm ready for it. At least Gianna is potty trained this year so that's a plus! We'll have lots of pictures to post when we get back! Bye for now!
P.S. Thanks for caring Ann e!!! You're so funny!!!
