More Disney!

One of the things that Kevin and I learned about Disneyland this trip has given me an insight into why we enjoy our time there and go so often. The whole reason that Walt Disney built this place is because he realized while sitting on a park bench watching his girls play, that there was no good place for children and parents to play together. So Disneyland was born! We were unfortunately not able to enjoy this little treasure with our older kids while they were young. We have enjoyed our time there with them this past year. But we are getting to enjoy this place with our two little ones now and we are treasuring every moment because we know all to well how quickly this time will pass We love California Adventure and this is a picture of everyones (except mine) favorite ride. California Screamin. scarrrry!
Doesn't she look like a little diva sitting on Minnies couch

This is now my favorite ride. Here is a picture of Pastor Josh, Benjamin, Nicky, Josiah, Elijah and Tracey going down. I just love this ride. And to think I was afraid of it. My next favorite right now is Big Thunder Mountain!

Ok for those of you who do not know, this is our senior pastor, Joshua Matteson. They truly are dear friends. They got to come over for the day and we had a great time. But I will let you in on a little secret. Pastor Josh worked at Disneyworld for a few years. He played characters. Most notably, are you ready for this, Peter Pan. WOW. I just wanted to walk around and tell everyone that he use to play Peter Pan. He played many other characters as well. Chip or Dale, can' remember which one. A coachman for my fav, Cinderella. There were many more but I can't remember them all. Oh I remember one, Pluto. How lucky are we!

He is an angry man. He kept growling at me and staring right at me. Yikes. Nicky and all three Matteson boys were picked to be in the Jedi show. How fun is that!

While waiting for Kevin and Nicky to get off my fav ride, Big Thunder Mountain, look who walks by but Pocahontas.

Tinkerbell herself! The Tinkerbell movie has become a family favorite. My husband is probably the biggest fan of it, not sure if it is for the message of the movie or how stunning it is in BluRay on the TV.
Emma was very unsure about characters this time around so no real good pictures of her with Tink but Nicky was quick to jump in an take a picture. Wonder why!

And then the big cheese himself. What a fun time.

BJ and Sam!

Not sure if Emma is pretend sleeping or pretend praying but she was laying in her sister's bed enjoying her time with sissy.
Not sure who had the better time. They so love each other.

Emma did not let her sister do much of anything without her being in the middle of it.

Emma fell asleep on her sisters lap while they played video games. So cute


Emma received many dolls for Christmas but her favorite is the one that she received in October for her birthday from our pastor and his family. She dances with it and loves and takes care of it. The others she will grow to love but this one, for now is her favorite.
