Easter, Lilies, & Tide Pools

I couldn't think of an interesting title.
Of all the things that should inspire a good blog post,
those would seemingly be high on the list.
Unfortunately, this will be another post of mainly photos.

A photo with our pastor.

The calla lilies are in bloom. We planted a small calla lily last year and it has grown like a wild weed to 300x its original size. That means lots of fresh cut flowers for the house.

The weather is warming up - time for another trip to the tide pools.

Fabulous Four!

Happy Birthday, Princess!

We hadn't been to Chuck E. Cheese's in a year.
Yes, very unoriginal, and we also went there for her 3rd birthday,
but she kept seeing commercials on T.V. for it and saying,
"We haven't seen Chuck E. Cheese's in a long time."

Beautiful Gianna came to celebrate, too!

Princess shoes! Thank you, Uncle Bobby, Aunt Kristen, and Gianna!

And now Barbie, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White can cruise!

Easter dress from Grandma & Grandpa Isaacs. So cute. Thank you!

Aunt Lauralee made me a colorable princess quilt!

It even has my name on it!

And it's perfect for laying on while I watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!
Thank you, Aunt Lauralee!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, and Other Festive Things...

... because I am way behind on my blogging and have a lot I am going to throw in this post.

We took a relaxing trip up to Julian on St. Patrick's Day.
There were daffodils growing wild all over.
It was a beautiful spring day - with lots of green to be seen.

Taylor with her King's Kids class, enjoying a St. Patty's Day party.

Tea Party! Thank you Nana and Papa!

We headed up with enchiladas and cupcakes to see Kristen And Gianna.
These letters were my first attempt at using the Cricut machine.
So many uses. I can't wait for more projects.

We took a trip up to the mountains looking for snow.

There wasn't much more than enough to make a few snow balls,
but it did start to lightly snow while we were up there.

The great thing about Southern California is,
as soon as you come down the mountain,
you can hit the beach.

Another party for Taylor. See, I told you I was behind.
This was in lieu of Valentine's Day, of course.

Kennedy & I attended a Valentine banquet at the church.

Well, that's the last month in a nutshell. Sorry the reading was concise and dull. I have been working on the computer all day and my eyes are burning.

It's that Time of Year Again...

Well, it was February...

tax return time, 2fer promotion time, and low season time
Disneyland time!

A weekday in February is the absolute, best time to go to Disneyland. Virtually no lines. The only one we really waited for was the Finding Nemo submarine ride, and still, that was only 15 minutes. Considering it is one of the longest rides at Disneyland, that was nothing.

(She's in funky smile stage right now.
When you ask her to smile she does weird things with her mouth.)

With the 2fer deal, we got to go to Disney California also.

(There's another funky smile)

Taylor didn't remember much from when we went to that place last year (Disneyland was much more memorable for her than Disney California), so it was like she was watching the Playhouse Disney show for the first time. I wish I had gotten video - she was totally amazed.

She met Cinderella this time. She was pretty excited. Cinderella was her new favorite princess for a day after this.

Disneyland... it's like the first time, every time.
