I am terrible at this blogging thing. Seriously. It's been like, 6 months.
Our winter was weird. In the fact that there was very little snow, which is really nice... but not much fun for sledding. We finally got one sledding day in, and Gracie enjoyed her first trip on a sled.
Christmas came and went. I don't know why I don't have any good photos of Christmas this year, sad.
Carson turned 6. He wanted a lego party, so that was fun.
We went to Disneyland with my family for a week in March. What a blast!

We did the Princess Lunch for the girls' birthdays. The look on Gracie's face when she met the princesses was priceless.
And princesses can eat spaghetti too, you know.
While we were in California, Sadie turned 8. Holy cow, I have an 8 year old! Next month, baptism!!! We had a little party with a homemade mint ice-cream cake... much yummier than it looked.
The next day, Gracie turned 3. She wanted a pink cake, with pink frosting.... and Dora. So, this is what I came up with. (Not too bad for a cake made while on vacation.)
The wishing well: Carson's Disneyland moment. We watched a little video about Disneyland on YouTube before we went, and it talked about this wishing well by the castle. Carson could not stop talking about what he was going to wish for. Well, I think he finally decided to wish for Bentley (his best friend) to bring him a dog when he got home. Yeah, sorry buddy... he's still waiting for that wish to come true!
I forgot to take a picture of all of the kids while in the park, so I had them take one on the walk back to the house we were renting. Braylie, obviously, was tired. But, I kind of love the picture.
And, Miss Braylie, or Bray Bray, as Gracie calls her, is growing up. She learned to walk while we were at Disneyland. All of those lines to walk back and forth between the handrails while we were waiting, I guess.
