7 Random things about me...

1. I love music!
I could listen to music all day. Any kind of music we find the beat and our house is groovin. Gracie and Cole have each enjoyed listening to their CDs like Hannah Montana and the Curious George soundtract. Cole loves George!

2. Dark Chocolate
I can't get enough this pregnancy! It must be a girl.

3. Girls Night Out
It could be brunch, dinner, catch a movie, or spa day. I don't care but I need my girltime.

4. A child's laughter
When the kids get that deep belly laugh going and can't stop. Priceless

5. Projects
I seem to always have something going. I'm a scrapbooking momma. I look forward to our monthly crop times. I'm always up for a home improvement project. And I love taking pictures of the kids.

6. Outside playtime
I love our playdates at the park. The kids love to be outside. A little fresh air can change our mood really fast. We are also blessed to have a wonderful neighborhood full of kiddos.

7. Alone time with Luke
At the end of the day I just want some quiet time with Luke. To have adult conversation and catch up on our day.

Disney Vacation

We headed out Saturday for Florida. Gracie couldn't wait to see her friend Aidan and go to Magic Kingdom. Cole was just excited to go to the airport and see all the airplanes. He has been talking about going to the airport since Christmas. I guess our many trips to pick up family during the holidays made an impression on him. He loves airplanes! We met up with our dear friends Nicki and Aidan for ice cream at Downtown Disney Saturday night. It was so good to see them and let the kids run around together at Legoland. The next few days were spent at Magic Kingdom and SeaWorld. Gracie loves the princess characters and any kind of princess show. Cole enjoyed driving a race car, riding Buzz Lightyear, and seeing Mickey's house. One of his favorite shows right now is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. He catches it every morning after breakfast. The weather was actually hotter than we thought it would be. It was around 80 most days. A nice change from the cooler temperatures in Bama. I love seeing Disney through the kids eyes. Everything is so magical. SeaWorld was a blast! We loved the Shamu show! The kids haven't stopped talking about it. Gracie is now going to be an animal trainer with dolphins and whales as well as a cheerleader. It's hilarious to hear Cole talk about the dolphinwhales. Yes, it's one word to him. He gets very animated talking about the big jumps and splashes. I'll have to try and catch a conversation on video. These are the things you don't want to forget. We came home tired but had a great time. Guess we'll wait a while before going back. Then baby #3 can expereince the fun with us.

Gracie's 5

Gracie turned 5 this past Monday. She's so excited to be a whole hand and to know Kindergarten is starting soon. Gracie is full of life! She loves to dance, sing, play dress up, all the cute girly things. While I love to just sit back and watch the show, she's growing up to fast. We pick out our own clothes and do our hair every morning. As her preschool years are rapidly coming to an end I find myself wanting to stop time. I love our playdates with friends, trips to the zoo, and days we stay in our pj's. SO, we celebrated her birthday this weekend with smiles. But I found it hard to hold back my tears. She had a fun filled weekend with her first father daughter date. Our church hosted a father daughter banquet Saturday night. She loved the chocolate fountain! That's my girl! Sunday was cake, ice cream, and presents. We leave this weekend for Disney World. I'm excited to share this trip with the kids while I have some energy and feel good. Before we know it the summer will be here and the craziness will start. But we are excited to add another Savage. Boy or girl we don't know. What I do know is Gracie will be a great Big Sister again!
