Here is our family blog about Katie, Stephen, Parker, Paige, and Sarah.

We were lucky enough to go to Florida for 2 1/2 weeks. We got to go to all of the Disneyworld parks and Universal Studios. It was so much fun and Parker was tall enough to go on most of the rides so we got to take turns going with him. My parents came the second week to have fun with us, which was nice because Steve had to go to a work conference the second week.

Parker got to train to become a Jedi. He even fought Darth Vader. 

Parker got called on stage to help with some animal actors.

We got to see Steve's grandma while we were there. We went to the beach. The water was cold, but that didn't stop the kids.

 Sarah started sitting up by herself.
 Our Christmas picture.
 We made gingerbread houses. Paige just put as much candy on that would fit. Parker was much more into design.

 Christmas outfits from Grandma.
Making snowmen.
Our cookie day.

It was just us for Christmas. It was kind of nice just being our little family for Christmas and making all of our own Christmas traditions, but we still missed family.

 All Paige wanted for Christmas was socks.

 Sarah loved just playing with the wrapping paper.

 And some snow angels.

 New Years day we went sledding with some friends.

And more...Halloween and Thanksgiving

Parker made a Jigglypuff pumpkin and Paige made a Minnie Mouse pumpkin. 

Sarah did not like her pumpkin. She cried every time she even got close to a pumpkin. 

Sarah really didn't like being inside the pumpkin. 

Paige was Cinderella, Steve was her prince and Sarah was the pumpkin. 

Parker wanted to be a skeleton picachu and I was Ash. 

We had a preschool Halloween party at our house. Here are all of the kids. 

And here is our Thanksgiving! We were all ready to have Thanksgiving with friends when Wednesday morning Steve said, "lets just go to Disneyworld today when I get home from work instead of Monday." Okay... so we did it. I got everything washed and packed and we left for Florida that night. We made it half way and stopped, then kept driving Thanksgiving morning. Here we are in Orlando at Denny's having Thanksgiving dinner. This is Sarah's first Thanksgiving.  

Next up Disneyworld.
