Family Journal: Week 7: Feb.12th-Feb.18th

Saturday, February 12th: Today we got up early for Magic Morning hours. We got to Disneyland at 8:00. We went on a ton of rides before 9:30, including the Matterhorn which Parker even went on. We had an amazing lunch at the Blue Bayou, all 16 of us. We went on many more rides. We had to fit in as much as we could since it was our last day. My Aunt Stacy and Mom treated Emma to a makeover at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. She looked like an angel. She was beautiful and she just loved the whole experience. We were all sad this was our last day but we fit in so much today. Disneyland truly is the Happiest Place on Earth!!

Sunday, February 13th: Today we woke up around 8:00. We packed everything up and said our good-byes to Grandma and Grandpa. We left around 9:45 and made it home by 4:30. It was a fast trip home. It actually went by really fast. The kids were exhausted so they all took great naps in the car. We had such an amazing Disneyland trip. We can't wait to go again next year!

Monday, February 14th: Today was Valentine's Day. Josh was so nice. He got up with the boys, got them dressed and fed and all ready for school. I never get to sleep in. It was amazing, better than any present. I woke up just before he took them to school to give them kisses. I woke up to a dozen red roses, coffee and breakfast. It was a wonderful Valentine's Day morning. Parker had his first day of Speech. He did so great. He was trying so hard to do whatever Alba asked of him. I was so proud of him. The kids had good days at school telling everyone about Disneyland. Luckily it was an early release day, so Carson got out at 1. We all needed the extra rest. Josh was able to get off work a little early so we could hang out tonight.

Tuesday, February 15th: Today AJ came over a little later. Cooper had a great day at school. After lunch we went to the school to watch Carson's play. The 1st graders have been practicing since the beginning of January. The play was "Friendly Neighborhood Helpers". Carson was in the garbage truck driver group. They sang a song which was really cute. Carson did a great job! Josh wasn't able to make it unfortunately. It was a little crazy with Cooper, Emma, Parker and AJ. Today Josh tested for his next rank, Tech. He won't find out how he did until June.

Wednesday, February 16th: Today Cooper celebrated his birthday at school. He took cupcakes and they sang Happy Birthday to him. He got to wear a special birthday crown all day. Cam didn't go to school today, so we picked Carson up. 3 trips to that school a day is a little much, back and forth, back and forth. When we picked Carson up it was pouring. We were soaked! Josh worked late so tonight the kids and I had movie night. We watched Shrek 4 and had popcorn.

Thursday, February 17th: Today the boys didn't have school. AJ came over early. It was a house full today with all 5 kids here all day. The kids played on the computer alot today. The Wii didn't even get turned on. The boys played Barbies with Emma for awhile. It was very rainy and stormy, so no outside time at all.

Friday, February 18th: Today Cooper turned 6 years old. The boys didn't have school again today and Josh had to go into work at 12. So he took Cooper out to breakfast. Of course he picked donuts. He had his favorite jelly donuts from The Pink Box. After breakfast he played on the computer for awhile. He picked Burger King for lunch. Josh was able to get off work early and was home by 4:30. We all got ready and went to dinner at Claim Jumper to celebrate his birthday. The kids loved this restaurant. They got so much food. They really loved the build your own sundae. We got home and the boys played Legos for a little bit before bed. I can't believe Cooper is 6 already!
