Tiny hands

Bryson and Kaitlyn got little bead projects for Christmas from G&G Mumford. They each made a design and then we ironed the beads to fuse them together. I never would have thought that Alyssa could do it. She literally spent several hours over several days and filled the entire board. It was fascinating to watch her tiny hands work so patiently and diligently.


Bryson has basketball games each Saturday morning. He is loving it and quite good. He had several steals and rebounds this morning!

Even though it was much colder than we would have liked, we had a fabulous time!

Bryson didn't want to ride Test Track at Epcot (to his credit it was 10pm and he was worn out) so tested out cars which were being displayed at the end of the ride

Kaitlyn in the shark after the Finding Nemo Ride at Epcot

Our princesses waiting to ride Pirates of the Caribbean for the second time.

Parade watching

Everyone's favorite ride of the entire visit - the safari at Animal Kingdom

One of the days, everyone got to pick a snack for themselves.
Kaitlyn had been talking about lollipops before we even got to Disney

Bryson chose ice cream

Luckily he got enough to share with everyone

Kevin and I chose funnel cakes

Alyssa was a big attraction herself - people loved to stop and watch her dance, she would dance anywhere and didn't care if it was just in the middle of a crowded sidewalk

One night Alyssa made her own dinner with ketchup, corn, hot dogs, and a smashed/crumbled hot dog bun

Shadows - we lost a lot of time trying to get Alyssa to walk from one ride to another. She was so entertained with her shadow. She literally spent more than an hour running to her shadow and doing tricks with her shadow.

Alyssa loved waving to everyone - even if the performers were way up on stage

We loved staying at the animal kingdom and being able to go out to our balcony each morning and watch the animals - we saw lots of zebras!

Kevin scared me the first night in the hotel when he came dashing back from the bathroom saying he saw a mouse...

Mickey everywhere!

Kevin had a conference in Atlanta and we all tagged along. We were able to visit Kevin's Aunt Diane and Uncle Todd and cousins while there.

Aunt Diane and boys went to the Fernbank Natural History Museum with us while Kevin was in meetings.

The favorite exhibit for all was the bubbles.
Kaitlyn, Bryson, Dallin, Logan, and Carson Baker

Alyssa enjoyed the bubbles and then decided to use them to clean her tights.

We had rain for Christmas but the day after we got snow.

Riley shoveled the driveway after we got more snow on Sunday. He learned his lesson of hoping for snow:)
