Well, we stopped at the Magic Kingdom on the day we arrived. We didnt have much daylight going in, but we really wanted to see the fireworks show...AMAZING!! We did ride Its a Small World and the Dumbo ride. Eliana and Tim rode a small rollercoaster called the Barnstormer. Elianas first rollercoaster. She loved it! No, Olivia didnt ride it. She want ready. She did ride her first one today, but thats another story. There was also a dance party with Stitch, Pluto, and Goofy. It was fun..great (loud) music, concert lights, and lots of kids dancing. No, my girls wouldnt join in, but they enjoyed watching. There were other things we did on those few short hours at the Magic Kingdom but they are escaping me at the moment. We will be going back in a couple of days so we can be sure to meet every princess and character we can find...and to ride Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. Pictures will come later. They are on my camera so i will do picture posts when we return.

we made it safely to Florida. The flight was nice. The take off was like the start of a rollercoaster. We shot down the runway. The view of the VA mountains capped with snow was breathtaking. The flight itself was smooth. The landing was perfect. The girls enjoyed the flight although on ascending and descending they felt wierd, normal flight wierd like elevator feeling magnified. It is hot here. Yay! I will check back in soon.

Simplicity's New Look 6171,...a fake wrap-around with an elastic waist for the super skinny girl and cute sleeves. The pattern has many variations...three quarter sleeves and a collar or an asymmetrical tunic top and capris. I love the variety, I can see other variations being more of Eliana's style, but this is what Olivia chose.

Well, it's official...my baby turned 10 years old. I cannot believe ten years have passed. She is on the precipice of teen years and quite excited...especially now that she is officially a tween. We had a small celebration with the opening of one gift from us and one from a friend. The day was relaxed and fun. The birthday girl requested a taco dinner (which was a gift to me-simple and delicious) then we went to Sweet Frog for dessert. Yum! The party where there are more gifts and most importantly cake, will be this weekend when family from near and far will come and celebrate with us. We are looking forward to it!
