The Happeiest Place on Earth.....

Wow...I am embarrassed that it has been this long since I have updated...I have to admit, I am a little hooked on Facebook. It just seems easier to write a little one I figured I need to post about our little vacation we just came back from. We took off to Disneyland on Tuesday and got back Sunday. It was so much fun (Jer even said "I would consider doing this again")....We left our baby Emrey with Jeremy's parents and it was so nice to just be able to focus on the two older ones. They had a blast to say the least....our first stop was the was windy and FREEZING but my brothers and husband dove right in and had the time of their lives. Regan is obsessed with seashells and the beach and this was her first official trip.....I have to admit the ocean intimadtes me a little, so I was constantly hollering at the kiddos to get back...but they loved having the waves wash up on their feet.

The waves were acutally bigger than this...too scary for me!

We turned Regan into a mermaid!

The next four days was non stop action at Disneyland. We decided to break down and take Regan to the Bibbity Bobbity Boutique where they pamper you by doing your hair, makeup and other girly stuff turning you into royalty and it was worth EVERY expensive

They then told us that they can turn boys into "Cool Knights" and we thought there would be now way Daxton would let them do his hair...but then he heard that he got a sword and shield and he was all over it...must admit, they did a really cute job!! This was probably the funnest part.

Presenting....Princess Regan and Sir Dax....

It was so much fun and the kids did so amazing that we will definatley be doing the trip again!!

December Happenings....

So I decided I might as well blog about the entire month of December in one post because right now it is nearly impossible to find time that Emrey will let me sit long enough to blog. Jer is off of work this entire week and as I type, he rocks Emrey....NICE!! So to start December, the family went on their annual Christmas tree hunt...I must admit, I am not a huge fan of this. I think it is a lot of work to get the kids ready and hike up a mountain and then drag a tree down...not to mention putting lights on it. But it is a big deal to Jeremy so we go.....

Next my little Regan...well not so little anymore...had her FIRST concert for her singing group that she is in called Tavaci. She LOVES to sing AND perform and this group is the perfect fit. I was one proud mommy to watch her sing her little heart out. It was also fun because her Aunt Ashlee and cousins Brogan, Ridge and Dace are in it also.

Next came gingerbread houses at my sisters house. This is a tradition we do every year and it is always a lot of fun...we had bad luck with all the houses toppling over but the kids still had loads of fun...

Then came was a blast this year. Regan and Daxton were totally into the Santa Claus thing. Jeremy and I almost blew it a few times with them finding presents, they are a lot smarter now :) Regan was so excited that Santa remembered everything she wanted. She was a little concerned that we had not left cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. I had to reassure her that I took care of it :)

Another fun tradition is going up to the "Mantua town Christmas party" Christmas morning...I know you are thinking "what, you go up to the church for a town Christmas party on Christmas morning??" Jeremy thought it was a little strange too...although he has warmed up to the idea now. Santa comes and draws tickets for small gifts...and yes..all three of my kids got to go up this year!! Regan also got to perform her Tavaci songs for the program....

And finally, Jer and I got brave and took to kids to the Zoo in December. They had a "free zoo day" this week and we packed up all the snow gear and headed down. It was so much fun. There was hardly anyone there and all of the big cats and bears were out playing in the snow.

Whew....I am ready for the new year!

Emrey you are two months old already!! Where has the time seems like it took forever for you to get here and then you grow up so fast! You have been by far my easiest baby. You smile all the time and try to coo a little. Your sister and brother love you so much and you make us so happy! We are so blessed to have you as part of our family!

Baby Emrey is here!!!

Emrey Winn Gee arrived on Friday September 18th at 11:52 pm. She weighed a nice 8 pounds 10 ounces and was 21 inches. When she was being delivered all doctor could say was "holy hair" and "this baby is covered in hair" it was pretty funny. She did come posterior (face up instead of face down) so the labor was longer than it normally would have been. But she made it here and is perfect. Regan already claims "she looks just like me".....she does, but she has a lot of Daxton in her too. Now the question I ready to begin life with 3!!!!????

Kindergarten on....

Regan FINALLY got to start Kindergarten today. I wish I could say it was your "normal" first day of school, but does anything "normal" happen to me.....not usually. The morning started off "normal" I guess you could say but by the time it was time to get ready we were already running late. I finally loaded Regan and Daxton in the car and headed to the bus stop (heaven forbid Regan NOT riding the bus....she was more excited about the bus than school). I rounded the corner to the bus stop only to realize the bus was already ahead of us and we were racing to get to the bus stop before we missed it. All was well there in the end, I jumped out of the car, grabbed Regan and told Daxton to stay in the car while I got Regs on the bus. Gathered with all the other moms (some of which were crying....I have NO idea why) we watched all the kiddos load onto the bus and I snapped a picture and watched the bus pull away. As I am turning to go back to my car, I notice the car is slowly moving toward me....YES my darling 3 year old has climbed out of his seat belt, into the front seat and put the car into drive....!!! I was driving our older car that Jeremy usually uses for car pool and as I go to grab the door....I realize it is locked!! Yes, the stupid car doors lock automatically when the car is put into drive. So there I am 8 1/2 months pregnant jogging along side the card yelling at Daxton to "open the doors". I guess I should count myself lucky because he somehow managed to get the car back into park which jolted the car to a stop and then he unlocked the doors. Well I wish I could say that was it, but as I am driving home still shaking from the whole ordeal I remember I am supposed to go visiting teaching right then so I pull up to my partners house and pick her up. We drive to the first persons house and I put the car in park, take out the keys, put on the park break and we head into the house. So this sweet lady does not live on a flat piece of ground, her driveway is very steep but why would that worry me?? Well, we are standing in the doorway with Daxton and he says he is going to play on the lawn (which is normally does at her house). We continue on with our lovely message and chat and turn to leave and I notice that my car which was once in the driveway is now backed across the road and the back tires are up over the curb.....need I say more?? Daxton had quietly climbed back into the car WITHOUT KEYS and WITH THE PARK BREAK ON and still managed to shift the stupid car into reverse....I can gratefully say no one was injured in my 3 year old's joy rides, but he now knows if he EVER moves the car again...he gets to go talk to the nice policeman who live at the top of our street. So if any of you think you have a crazy 3 year old, give me a call. It might make me feel better. Whew!! What a nice first day of school...

Summer Fun!!

Well I don't know if I am just trying to survive the heat or I am just plain lazy, but I decided I better post that we are still alive!! My poor kids are trying to "survive" mom being pregnant Jeremy just doesn't say anything (which is probably smart on his part). Jeremy had a work party at the zoo a few weeks ago and they rented it out (didn't know you could do that....) but we pretty much had the zoo all to ourselves. They had face painting...and that was all Regan wanted to do!! They were amazing face painters as you can see....I also enrolled Regan in a summer dance camp to see if she liked it....she doesn't. All she wants to do is gymnastics. It is like pulling teeth to get her to go, but I did get some cute pictures.

Picture of the zoo....completely empty....we were down looking at the black bears and Jeremy had to take a picture of our own "personal viewing"!!

YES I am should have seen my feet!!

Jer is always such a good sport!!

Told you the face painting was AWSOME!!!
