Baby #2 is on the way!

We are so excited to announce that we are having another little one in November! Yes, Brayden is FINALLY going to be a BIG BROTHER! We have people all the time asking "when are ya'll going to have another?", "Are you going to have another?" Well, the answer is "NOW" and "Yes"! We've always wanted more children, but would be very happy with just Brayden! We had a rough year last year, after my grandmother had and stroke in February, I miscarried in Feburary also. I found out I was pregant in June last year and was so excited, then my mom found out she had breast cancer and I miscarried shortly after that. So, We decided to wait a while before trying again. I even had a few tests run, just to make sure everything was ok...every test came back normal! Praise God! Of course I still questioned because I had NO trouble whatsoever with Brayden, which I should not have done, because God knows what we can handle and is bigger than we can ever imagine!

We are 15 weeks now and have had 3 ultrasounds and everything looks great so far. I am going to the Dr. about every 2 to 3 weeks because of the past miscarriages and I'm loving hearing this little heartbeat as often as possible! Our due date is November 22 and will be happy with whatever we are blessed with, boy or girl. Brayden says he wants a little brother, but we will see! :)

Spring Break/Disney World 2010

I'm finally getting arount to posting our Disney trip!  This year during Spring Break we went to Disney World!  We went with Bo's parents and had the best time!   Brayden LOVED all the characters.  We ate with several of them and stood in line to meet some too!  He's really into Toy Story, so we got to meet Buzz Lightyear and Woody!  We even got to see some of the Toy Soldiers!  He loved riding all the rides he could ride on!  He wanted to ride every ride twice!  I left out the Animal Kingdom pics and will post them later. We ate lots of good food while we were there... you'll see some of the places we ate at.  I left out Ohana's(i just didn't take any pics while we were there)...which was one of our's a lot like Texas de Brazil, if you've ever eaten there, but very kid friendly!  We missed some things and hopefully will catch them the next time we go!   Lots of pictures below! 
Our first night in Downtown Disney we ate at T-Rex!  Lots of fun if you have boys!  Brayden loves Dinosaurs right now, so this was a big treat!  When you walk in, there is a life size T-Rex and it moves!  There's also a Build A Dinosaur in there too....and a place to dig up fossils!  Very kid friendly and great food! :)  Below : We ate in the ice cave part of T-Rex! It would change colors every 15 mins. Here's the whole family:ME, Bo, Brayden, RuRu, Papa, and Uncle Josh

Bo and Brayden on the Buzz Lightyear ride at Magic Kingdom... we rode it probably 6 or 7 seven times. Brayden loved it!

Here is Brayden getting his haircut at Magic Kingdom.  It was lots of fun!  he got LOTS of mickey stickers and Sprinkles to top off his haircut! 

We ate at Crystal Palace(with Pooh, Tigger, and Piglet).  This was our first charcter lunch and Brayden LOVED them!   It's in Magic Kingdom and has a great view of the Castle while you are eating! 
This was actually taken from the porch of Crystal Palace

We finally find Woody!  We had been telling Brayden that we would get to meet him and we did!!  Brayden didn't want to leave him!  But we got to see him again the next day at Hollywood Studios!

Brayden and I on Toy Story Mania...another one of our favorites!!  we only got to ride it twice, since it was new and lots of others wanted to ride it too!  We rode this as soon as we walked into Hollywood Studios and then got a fast pass.... there were 2 hour waits for this ride! 

Here's Buzz and Woody Together!  Brayden was so excited!

We ate at the 50's Diner in Hollywood Studios and this was our waiter, Mark!  It's set like a kitchen from the 1950's and have old tv shows(The Donna Reed Show, Patty Duke, Lassie) playing while you eat! They are strict here!  No putting your elbows on the table and you had to eat all of your food before you got dessert!!  Lots of fun...they keep you on your toes... and great food!!!

One of Brayden's favorite movies is Monster's Inc. We found Mike and Sully!  A lot of the kids were scared of them but Brayden loves them!  He thought they were so much fun!

Our next meal was breakfast at Cape May with Donald Duck, Goofy, and Minnie Mouse!  We loved it here!  They were dressed for the beach! 
Meeting Chip and Dale! 

Brayden and I riding the tea cups!  Brayden wanted to spin faster! 

The Barnstormer Rollercoaster!  This was really the only rollercoaster brayden was able to ride!  We rode it once together and then I got him and his daddy riding it the second time! 

Mickey and Minnie!

Bo and Brayden on the Buzz Lightyear ride one last time! 

Our last night, we saved the best for last!  Chef Mickeys!  Great food and a wonderful time with the characters!  We got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto!

Brayden has a new friend/toy/puppy and so does Wrigley!! TINKERBELL! We have had Tinkerbell for 2 weeks now. My SIL, Ashley, found her and couldn't keep her, so we took her in. The vet said that she around 8weeks old and is a lab mix.  Brayden loves carrying Tinkerbell around!  Wrigley is staying outside now(all the time) since we got Tinkerbell! She has finally adjusted to her and sleeping outside all together! Gabby even enjoyed playing with her yesterday!


Playing with Rowe

It's been so cold outside!  We had Celeste and Rowe over for a few hours one Saturday!  The boys had so much fun playing together!  Brayden calls Rowe his best buddy!
