At the end of last month my mom's dance group performed at Disneyland. We decided it would be the perfect opportunity to take Leyla to Disneyland for her first time. The flight there turned out really good, Leyla slept for 30 minutes of the hour and a half flight. Once we got there we checked in to our hotel and ran to Target to get some snacks for the park. Once we got in to Target Leyla had a major blow out. I had to take everything off of her and walk around the store with her naked until I could buy  her something to wear. Luckily the rest of the trip went better than that day :) Here are a few pictures. The first day we spent at Disneyland riding rides. Leyla loved watching the parade with Mickey in it. She LOVES Mickey!

It's a Small World. Leyla loved all of the music.

The Second day we spent the whole day at Disneyland riding rides and playing with family at the park.
We were waiting in line for the Finding Nemo ride and Leyla kept trying to take Greg's hat off and put it on herself. Greg kept taking it away and saying "mine". Let's just say that probably wasn't the right word to say. "Mine" is her new favorite word!

Leyla was terrified of Goofy. After he left from taking the picture she kept staring at him. Haha

Greg getting some relaxing in.

I cannot believe that people wait in dozens of lines just to get pictures and autographs with the characters. We waited in line for at least 20 minutes to get a picture with Minnie.

Inside Minnie's house was so cute. Leyla loved playing inside with her cousin Savannah.

Our third day we drove out to Huntington Beach. We chose the WORST day to go to the beach. It was so windy and cold. We all sat bundled up in our towels because nobody planned for it to be cold when we got there. Leyla loved the beach. I had a couple freak out moments when she kept eating the sand. I can't believe she thought it tasted good! Even though it was cold we had a lot of fun and were even able to see a bunch of dolphins swimming near the shore.

Love him :)

Later that night after we got all cleaned up we went with my sister and her family to an Angles vs Rangers game. The boys were in heaven.

 I don't have any pictures on my camera of our last day at Disneyland. The girls danced and performed well. We had a wonderful trip (minus the flight home) and are excited to plan another one sometime soon!

This was for your Anne :):)

Happy Halloween!

I am finally updating, can you believe it?? I hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween, filled with lots of fun and laughter! We had a pretty low key Halloween this year. We spent our night sitting on the couch watching "The Sing Off" while handing out candy. We really enjoyed our holiday just relaxing and not having to get ready for a big party. Before Leyla went to bed we took her out front and got a few pictures of her in her costume on her 1st Halloween! Here is our little Leyla Bug-ENJOY!

Welcome to our home!

Before I get to the house-here are a couple pictures of our growing princess! We can't get enough of her!

This past June we bought our first home together. We have loved every minute of owning a house. We have spent most of our summer working in the yard (trust me it needed A LOT of work). We still have a lot of things to decorate, but that is going to take time and MONEY!

Here is the kitchen-my favorite room. We have never had an apartment with so much cupboard space!

The dining area is just off of the kitchen.

Here is our living room. I love this room because it is so open.

Another angle of the living room.

Our Master bedroom.

Our master bathroom. It opens up to our shower/toilet area, as well as our master closet.

Extra bathroom.

Little Leyla's room.

Another view of her room.

Here is our office. It is still a mess. All of our leftover junk is in this room right now.

Our laundry room. It is so nice have space to do laundry. In our last apartment we couldn't even open the door all of the way!!

The next few picture are of our basement. The guy that lived here before us did some way random/weird things when he was finishing it. We are going to have a lot of work to do to fix it up.

Here is the bathroom downstairs.

Here is the bedroom downstairs-obviously we haven't gotten the bedroom set put together yet :)

Here is the downstairs family room.

Only about 60% of the basement is finished. I'll post pictures if we ever get around to finishing it.

Now we need some visitors. Come on over if you need somewhere to stay, we would love to have you!
