Yea!!! Disney!!!!

Although, I would suggest to everyone who has children under 4 to stay at home...we did have an absolute blast at Disney World!! It was very stressful at times and so much fun other times...maybe its just me...I don't take...get up and go, go, go vacations well especially with small children. Lauren and Aidan did absolutely LOVE playing with their new cousins and I have to say without Laura (David's sister) to tell us where and when the best time to do things, I think our stress levels would of been alot higher. All in all, I wouldn't of changed a thing because just watching Lauren & Aidan's WOW expressions on some of the rides and places was worth it all!! We had tons of great photos, but here are a few to keep you busy:
My crazy baby on the plane...
Lauren riding the airport train... The first time the cousins met...didn't take them long to be best friends...
Lauren loved holding her cousin Joren's hand...Lauren remember your cousins!!

We tattooed our kids with our names and numbers...I stole this idea from Jessica...

Lauren rode this kids ride about 30 times...and I am not exaggerating...
Joren loved it too...

Off to see Rella!

We leave tomorrow for Disney World!! Lauren keeps talking about Rella (Cinderella) so I know she is going to love seeing all the princesses!! When you ask her "where is rella?" , she pulls down her pants and points to the princesses on her pull ups...well I guess I asked! :) I plan on taking alot of photos so Aidan remembers that we did take him so I will post them when I get back! Have a great weekend!!

Can you tell wedding season is among us?

OK, OK, I have lots of new photos of the kids & stuff but have had no time to upload them because its wedding season and I am in the middle of training my new Creative Director, Julie Raines!! AND its pretty much a wedding every weekend until the middle of November so forgive me if I have been neglecting my personal blog.

Let's catch up...
1. You have probably already read this on my sister's blog, but the Herfurth family went to the Dallas Temple to get sealed to each other for time and all eternity! YEA! Don't the kids look adorable in white!
2. Aidan playing in the mud...he is such a boy!!! Lauren at least was an organized mess...




3. We tried out that place called GO BONKERS and they loved it!!! Here's Aidan...Lauren was too high in the jungle gym maze to take a photo. 4. We went to the Dallas Auto show to find a more fuel efficient car...

5. A fun day at Target...Kora do those boots look familiar??


6. Here is a little from Easter morning and the hunt at Mama & Papa's house...
(Jessica I have lots of your kids too, so I will make you a CD)


This is blurry...but its so Aidan...he's got the crazy George gene in him!
Lauren, I think you missed a few...
Wait a minute...I think Marian is cheating...hehe...GO AIDAN!!
All the cousins...
Aidan with a chocolate face 7. And finally...for my drama driven sisters...here are my photos of the surrounding damage from the funnel cloud/storm. The weatherman said it wasn't a tornado because it never touched down, but I beg to differ! It actually jumped over our neighborhood and touched down about 2 streets away from mine....that's the last tower photo! This is actual damage on my street and alleys...I don't know how we came out with only a leaning fence. We spent about 20 minutes in the tub at about 4am in the morning after we heard the sirens...the kids of course thought it was a game!

This is our cross the street neighbor...
and their neighbor...
and their neighbor...there used to be a fence around this yard...
and then their neighbor...
This one is our next door neighbor...I was standing in our back driveway when I took this one...
and this one...and this one...
and this one...
and this one...
I was standing in our front lawn for this one...
After this last photo, you tell me that's not a tornado!! Those things don't come down just for a storm...the neighborhood on the other side is the one that really got the gut of it...
