Scoop + Disney + Jewelry Sale + LSU

I'm looking for more ballet shrugs like this one for Lainey.  It's fabulous.  I paid $15 for it at the La Jolla Farmer's Market 2 or 3 years ago on vacation.  It fits perfect, can be used as a scarf and is just enough coverage that Laine's arms and neck are covered for tank type outfits, yet you're not covering up the cute stuff.

Anyone know where to find them?


Disney sourdough.......snowman this time.  It's a total carb fest. 

Love when Laine acts like a pyscho.

This was all at Disney, of course.  We took a brief, 2 day trip to Anaheim to celebrate the end of Christmas break.  Kids JUST WENT BACK to school today. 

I'm not one of those moms who can't wait for school to start, but even I was ready this time.

Pouty princess.  I don't even know what this meltdown was about.  I stopped listening in 2010.

Britney got Carter started on trading pins at Disney.  Another obsession.  He's in love!

Lainey had a hard time reaching "Asiga", her imaginary friend, who was always on a different ride across the park while we were on another.  Always trying to reach her.  We never seem to connect.  Interesting.

This dude was awesome.  All cast members have to trade pins.  It's part of Disney etiquette.  Carter traded his first pin with him (a manager) and he actually let him keep the pin since it was his first. 

This is why I love Disneyland.  Every single visit......something along these lines happens.

Day 2.

No vacation fairy.


Bratty kids.  She's just like Santa.  Very concerned with behavior.

However, we did have 2 surprise visitors.

Carter took off upon entering the park with a friend and his family and then left with them.

I had the two little ones......and we met up with our surprise later on.

First, Laine had to twirl.

Casey Jr Train.

Can you hear the song?

Last time to see the Haunted Mansion in Jack Skellington style until Halloween.  We love both versions.......but Jack loves this one the most, of course.


Surprise friends showed up.....McNamara girls + extended family.

It was a princess party.

With a prince thrown in for good measure.

Love this family.  So lucky to have found them.

Brett got a turkey leg at some point and then passed it onto the girls.  They turned into carnivorous vultures pulling meat from the bone.

Not so dainty.

Basketball is awesome this year.  The coaches are more than we could ask for.  Just hope we keep with their team for years to come.

Laine is more interested in the IPad than the game.

And, crossing her legs.

My friend, Holly, is having a Valentine sale.  Check out her fantastic deals!

Main facebook page here.

Good stuff, peeps!  Check it out.

LSU is about to play and so I'm about to vomit all over my brand new shiny laptop.

So nervous.

Posted this on Facebook earlier and I feel compelled to do so again:

Geaux Tigers!

Casey: Try a dance supply store to find the ballet shawl. You know one of those cutsy shops that they sell dance shoes, tights, leotards, etc. Sorry I have never been a "dancer." I am sure they don't appreciate me referring to their elite art franchise as a cutsy shop.

I need a nap whenever I've finished reading a scoop post. As always, sounds like a lot of fun.

Good luck for your team tonight. For once I'm happy hubs is on dialysis. He can watch at the hospital while I watch something non football related. ;-)

Sorry about the loss Casey ... but at least a touchdown was finally scored! Dennis referred to it as the most boring game ever!

Sure wish Les would have prepared better or put Lee in. Redic.
Everytime I see one of those sourdoughs I get jealous.

Jack looks so big!!! I can't get over it. And Lainey crossing her legs?? Too funny. She's all girl.
