Disney 2014

It has been 4 years since we were last at Disney World.

Coltrane celebrated his 1st birthday there, hard to believe that he was on the brink of being 5 this time around.  Kingston really truly believed when we went the first time (he was 3.5), Coltrane was a little weary about what was real and wasn't because he followed Kingston's cues, but for the most part, he was a believer in all things magic, and even Kingston was smitten with the fantasy of the wonderful Disney World. 

I couldn't go on a lot of the rides but was able to do the basics, It's a Small World, Peter Pan, Pirates of the Caribbean, Buzz Lightyear etc...The boys however went on all the roller coasters!  Both of them were able to do the Mickey one, Thunder Railroad, the new Seven Dwarves one (that always had the longest most absurd line) and Kingston went on Space Mountain with Kyle :-)  Most days I ended up a bit puffy in my hands and ankles from walking around so much and from all the sodium in the food we ate, I was surprised with the boys' energy!  Only one day did Coltrane fall asleep and we rode the train around the park 3 times while HE napped, I may have dozed off too hehe.  Can't wait to go back again when sister is old enough, though I can imagine I'll be off doing all the princessy things and the boys will just be dashing from roller coaster to roller coaster.  It really is the most magical place on Earth.  Brace yo'self, there are a lot of photos.

First time we went to Disney, Kingston rode this ride over and over and over again.  This was Coltrane's first roller coaster and he did the same thing :-)

It "snowed" our last night there!  It was soap bubbles but the boys thought it was just the coolest.

Tradition of watching Christmas Vacation.

Phew, Happy New Year y'all!  December was a busy month for us.  A couple weeks before we left for Naples, Coltrane got the noro-virus and was sick for a week :-(  Kingston caught a little of it and was out for about 3 days.  Luckily, Kyle and myself never caught it!  I think we went through all of our DoTerra oils!

We went down to Naples for about two weeks to spend time with family and to relax.  In between, we went to Disney World--one last hurrah before baby comes.  (More on that soon)  Our flights were delayed coming back to TX so we ended up walking in the door a couple minutes after midnight on New Years Eve.  The following morning we realized that both of our cars were broken into, one of our checkbooks was in the front yard and my battery was a goner.   Everything is now squared away :-)  Boy were we happy to see our Matilda, that was the longest we have been away from her!

Anyway, I still feel a bit out of sorts bc we are in the middle of moving rooms around, de-constructing bunk beds, getting new beds, and preparing for baby.  We also have three birthdays (Coltrane, mine and Kingstons) to celebrate in between her arrival!  So we are busy, busy.  I have lots to catch up on the blog and will in the coming week(s).

Hope y'all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Here's a little video of the boys getting an early present (Playstation and two games) that Kyle just haaad to have them open ;-)  Not sure who has played more either ;-)
