Disneyland will have one extra princess tomorrow

Disneyland will have one extra princess tomorrow

My oldest daughter, newly-turned four year old, is going to have the surprise of her life tomorrow.

Tomorrow, she is going to Disneyland with her Grandma and Grandpa. We, of course, haven’t told her because we wanted her to sleep well tonight.

Ever since we went last year while on a visit to the States she has been asking us when we will go again. When we told her we were moving to America she asked us when we were going to Disneyland. And on average she asks about once a week. If you’ve ever been to Disneyland you understand that you have to either sell a lot of internal organs or put a second mortgage on your house in order to afford a trip for a family of five.  It is definitely expensive. But, oh man, the memories.

We still watch the video Handsome made of our two days at the land of the Big Mouse. The kids love it. We love it. I can’t wait to take them again.

But until then I’ll live vicariously through my four year old, who come this time tomorrow night will probably be bouncing off the walls of the hotel room because Grandpa couldn’t resist and bought her cotton candy.

Sweet dreams, Mom and Dad ;)

Motivated Moms

I’ve written this post a few different times, doing lots of editing, but I can’t seem to write it without sounding greedy. So I’ll just give some hints and see if anyone figures it out.

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way…

Away in the manger, no room for a bed…

Check out motivatedmoms.com. They have a fulldayperpage planner that is GREAT!

Hint, hint.

And if my husband is reading, it’s well within our set budget. You know, just in case you know someone that might like it ;)

Wacky weather

I just checked the current weather here in sunny California and, at 1:45 pm, it was 76 degrees. 76 degrees!! What is that in Celsius… ummm…that’s 24C. That’s practically a New Zealand summer!

This seems to be unusually warm for this time of year but maybe it’s just that I’m used to chillier weather at this point in the autumn season. A friend in Michigan emailed yesterday to say that they had snow!

I jokingly say that we don’t really have an autumn here. The leaves just get tired and fall off the trees.

need Thanksgiving ideas!

Okay, American readers, I need some help.

Thanksgiving is two weeks from tomorrow and I want to start some Thanksgiving traditions in the time leading up to the day.

Any ideas? What does your family do? Any websites for me to visit?
