Disney World!

My family and I have returned from Disney World! What a great trip we had. Everyone behaved pretty well - including my husband! When you go on vacations, you just never know who will misbehave. I had my kids ages 2 and 4, and then there was my 3 year old nephew. It was great to see Disney from the eyes of my kids. We took a lot of family trips there over the years, but the best yet was going as a mommy.

The worst part of the trip was when my son threw-up the second night there and did so every 2 hours all evening. I have emetophobia (fear of vomiting), so being trapped in a motel room with a sick kid was no fun for me! However once that night was over we went on to have a great time.

My daughter got her hair done at the Bibbity Boppity Boutique and she loved it. Her hair was adorable and we got lots of compliments all through the park. My son loved everything - but the characters. He usually isn't afraid of anything, but apparently TV characters that come to life and are bigger than both mommy or daddy, was just too much!
It's amazing how fast a week goes when you're at the happiest place on earth. As our plane landed a man sitting caddy-corner to me said "we have now landed at the saddest place on earth." My sentiments exactly! I often wonder why I live in a state with rain and cold when I could live in sunny Florida. Oh well - I don't think moving is in my near future!

New Nephew

I'm a terrible blogger! I haven't updated in over a month. I guess that's partly because I know that very few people ever read my blog. The only traffic I get is from Blog Explosion.
Anyhow - my new nephew arrived on April 18th! He was an adorable little baby - only 5lbs, 8oz. He had a head of dark hair though which totally shocked me. I was at the hospital with my sister-in-law all day until it was time to push. The nurse then promptly kicked me to the curb! It was such a special day for me! I've never been with anyone while they labored and I've always dreamed of being a doula someday. My mil and I both were helping her through the labor while by bil looked a bit lost and grossed out. I will never forget that day!
The new baby is doing great and growing so fast! Him and his momma had thrush last week, but they are on the mend and feeling better already.
In other news my family is headed to Disney World. I'm excited, but nervous about the flight as I have this great phobia called emetophobia. It makes life just a tad bit more difficult! HA!
So for those few people that do read my blog. You now have an update and hopefully will hear from me again after my vacation! Sunshine here I come!
