The Happiest Place on Earth!!

Last week we spent the week in the most glorious of places.... DISNEYLAND. I just love Disneyland. We had a wonderful time together. It was the first of many times we will take Maggie there. It was such a cool feeling to be able to have my own child in Disneyland. She was such a perfect little baby too. She was happy to just ride around in the stroller. She would fall asleep when she was tired and she would ride the rides and not get scared. We has a great time and enjoyed every minute of it.


Here are some highlights.....

Our family at Disneyland




Toy Story Mania!! Coolest ride EVER!!





Goofy Messing with Dee at Dinner in Goofy's Kitchen





Check out Maggie's eyes. She would get so wide eyed as we entered any ride.





Everyone looks good in Mickey ears.







Oh yeah, who taught the 7 month old to sip through a straw??





The magic and wonder in even the smallest of eyes








Everyone is a Prince or a Princess in Disneyland




So, Why do I love Disneyland???
Here are my top 10 reasons.
10.The magical sound that the turnstiles make as you enter the park.
9.The quotes throughout the park from Walt Disney.
8. The excitement that you see in any and every person who is standing in Disneyland
7. The Characters around the park who always make me smile

5. The music from the parade. "Welcome to our family time...." Who needs to say more??
4. Fireworks

FOREVER!

What an amazing word...Forever!! On Tuesday Sept 2, 2008...(our 11th wedding anniversary) we were able to take our beautiful daughter to the temple to be sealed to us. It was a beautiful day. Maggie was wonderful and the sweet sisters in the temple couldnt get over how beautiful she was. They said she was the sweetest baby and they had a wonderful time with her in the childrens center. Maggie is truly a miracle and she has a special spirit about her. She touches everyones heart!! i cant believe I am her mom! I am so blessed! I am thankful to our friends and family who were there to share this special occasion for our family! I love you all!!


In addition, we gave Maggie a name and a blessing in church yesterday. Scott gave Maggie a beautiful blessing. I am so grateful that I have a husband who honors his priesthood and could give Maggie this wonderful gift. I know the blessing he gave came from our Heavenly Father and was meant especially for Maggie. I am so lucky to be married to such a wonderful guy! It was even more special because Maggie's birthmom and birth grandparents attended the blessing. They were so sweet and excited for Maggie and our family. I am so thankful we have a good relationship with Maggies birth family. They are amazing people and we are lucky to have them as part of our family!!
After church we had a yummy luncheon with our family and friends. Thank you to everyone who brought treats and came to share in our joy. We are blessed beyond measure!!!
