Last week we were lucky enough to go to Disneyland with Weston's parents, all his brothers, wives and their kids.  It was a big crazy bunch but it was lots of fun.  We stayed in a hotel about a block away from Disneyland which was so nice to be close enough to go back and forth whenever we wanted.  We spent three days between Disneyland and California Adventureland.  Kason and Makenna had so much fun but Makenna keeps telling me her favorite part was when the plane landed.  They both would throw their arms up in the air and squeal like they were on an amusement park ride.  They were so cute!  Disneyland was lots of fun and the waits weren't long at all.  Well, Tinkerbell was pretty long but other than that it was great.  The park was decorated for Halloween, which I was not a fan of, (I'm just not a fan of Halloween in general) but it was fun to see it differently.  The kids loved the teacups, Storybookland, the Little Mermaid ride, the carousel and meeting characters.  Makenna did get brave and she went on all the big rides.  I went on Splash Mountain but that was as good as it got.  Kason and I got to stand around and wait a lot so I spoiled myself and did some shopping.  Now Kason is obsessed with Mickey with is totally adorable! Well here are some pics of our trip!  It was so much fun and thanks Grandma and Grandpa Southwick!

Number 3

Yes, we have baby #3 arriving in February!  We get to have our ultrasound in 3 weeks and hopefully we can find out what it is!  Makenna is super excited and when we finally told her so had a million questions like where is the baby going to sleep and who's house she gets to sleep at when we go to the doctors to get the baby.  She is hoping for a girl but I have to keep reminding her that we get what we get and we don't throw a fit.  We are just hoping for a healthy baby.  Kason on the other hand doesn't understand and could care less.  He's a typical boy!

(I tried to upload the ultrasound pic but it just won't work.  Sometimes technology is such a pain!)

Makenna's First Day of Preschool

Wednesday was Makenna's first day of Preschool.  She goes to a place called The Busy Bee Preschool and it is pretty close to our house.  We were able to go meet her teacher and her classroom last week and Makenna got so excited!  She could hardly wait for school to start.  Her teachers name is Miss Mandy she has two neighbor girls in her class so that makes it nice for her to feel comfortable and nice for carpooling for me!  She said her favorite part about school yesterday was playing.  They have this really cute castle and Makenna was really excited to play in it.  Poor Kason sure missed her while she was gone though.  You should have seen how excited he was when we went and picked her up.  It was adorable!  I'm excited for Makenna to be starting up preschool and I know this will be great learning experience for all of us.  Well here are some pics!
 That sun is awful on the front of our house!  She is always squinting!
 So cute!  Her shirt says "Too Cool For School"  She calls it her guitar shirt.
Kason was getting jealous of all the picture taking Makenna was getting. 

Makenna's First Day of Dance

This year Makenna is taking dance at two different studios this year. Of course she'll be at the Dance Depot with her favorite teachers Grandma and Cali but we are also trying out the Jazz n Place. She started at the Jazz n Place on Tuesday and she said she had a lot of fun and her teacher was nice. So I hope she continues to enjoy it. Here she is for her first day. She picked out her outfit to wear today and it was from one of her dance recital dances last year. I think this is her favorite outfit but I'm afraid she's getting too tall for it. Hopefully she won't notice when it's missing next week!

Her eyes look closed because it was so sunny outside!
