3 years

Ellie is 3! I cant believe it. Time is just flying by. We went to dinner at Italian Village the night before her birthday for yummy pizza benders. On her birthday she woke up to presents and we went to McDonald's for breakfast. We just kind of bummed around for the day and had the grandparents over for a little BBQ and cake. Ellie was really hoping for a Jake cake and party, but nowhere made the cake, so she decided on Tangled (which is her favorite anyway). She got lots of fun presents and a new big wheel. She is talking up a storm and seems like such a big girl. Today I asked her if she wanted to go swimming and she said, "NO! I have to get a mermaid tale first!!" She is a goofy little girl and loves to make crazy faces and dances. She still throws the occasional tantrum, but for the most part she is pretty well behaved. Her new nickname for everyone is Mr. Kitty or Mr.Pants. She loves Full House and is always quoting it, she will walk up to complete strangers and say "HOW RUDE!" Or "You got it dude!" We are taking her softie less places, but she still sleeps with it every night, her and the girls have sleep overs all the time and watch movies. A few funny things she says -BEDonalds (Mcdonalds) Chicken and a play (chick fil a) Shobell (shovel)
Ellie's Favorite things:
TV Show: Doc Mcstuffins
Movie: Sord in the Stone
Food: Treats of any kind
Toy: Dress up, CONSTANTLY
Outside: Tramp and sand box
Clothes: Minnie dress
Disney character: Pascal
We finally put up her big girl bed, she has been sleeping on a twin mattress on the floor forever, and she has a tv in her room which she just loves. We love you Monkey girl, stop growing so fast!!

Disneyland 2013

Disneyland this year was great! The weather was great, not too crowded and just as magical as always!! We extended our trip by a few days, We left on Thursday after work, stayed in Vegas at The Silverton which was awesome! Not only was it only $60 they had an aquarium with mermaids swimming in it, the girls were in heaven. We took the girls to M&M world, Coca-cola factory and the Shark Reef while we were there. We got to CA on Sat. We attempted to go to Newport, but it was SO busy! No parking anywhere and tourists galore. So we got to do a beach drive by. I was pretty sad about that. The beach is in my soul. We got all settled in the hotel, went shopping and swimming and had a fun relaxing night. Everyday after that we were up VERY early and out at the park until closing, we just cant waste 1 minute when we are there!! The only ride that was closed was Big Thunder, which is one of our favorites. But we were very happy that Space mountain was back up and running! The girls had so much fun, we didn't meet as many characters as I would have liked to, but there is always next time! Kensi and Brinley were finally tall enough for CA screamin, and they LOVED it! Kensi cried in line, but had so much fun once we were on. We didn't do Small World 500 times like last year, but we did the teacups a lot, pirates (which Ellie says she hates because of the hills!) and Tower of Terror. My cousins and Aunt Sharon came and met us at the park for a few days, it was so nice to see them all and nice to meet a few too! I hadn't seen them in so long! My friend Kim and her cute girls who my girls just LOVE and miss so much met us at Ariel so the girls could ride together, they were so happy to see each other, it was darling. We had such a blast, and we are so depressed to be back to reality!! Hopefully we can plan a trip in 2014! Until next time Disneyland, the land that we love the most!

More teeth

The girls all went for their check-up at the dentist last week. Kensi's top tooth was pretty loose and her bottom 2 were becoming shark teeth, so we made an appt for the following week to have all 3 pulled. The night before that I pulled out her top one. Poor kid, 3 teeth out and a cavity filled in less than 24 hours. The other girls all were great, no cavities. Berklee went for the first time, but I didnt get any pictures of her. She sat there and let him do everything and didnt fight it at all. The dentist's exact words about her mouth were "She is going to be an Ortho's nightmare!" Her mouth is very narrow and tiny. Just like the rest of her!

21 Months

Berklee is 21 months already! She is so TINY still, her new nickname is Shorty. She still barely speaks, just screams and says what she wants, when she wants. She is going through the "I'll eat a little today, nothing tomorrow and pig out the day after" phase. She is getting pretty picky about her food, and wants to feed herself. I think she will be a lefty. She loves to take a bath, and will not leave her diaper on if she has a chance to get it off. Her personality is so funny, she is being so goofy lately! Making all kinds of crazy faces and noises! She still lets me rock her every night before bed, which I love. Love you so much big (little) girl! :)
