Lily is hiding her eyes while we bring out her Easter basket before church. Aunt Fancy Nancy has been shopping again...this time she bought her a beautiful dress. She also bought her a beautiful polka dotted dress and a fun summertime outfit. I have already posted pictures of Lily in the polka dot dress on Facebook. THANK YOU, Aunt Fancy Nancy!Miss Lily loves her new stamp set. She is looking forward to using it after church.She has a big smile for her chocolate Easter bunnies and her pink bunny Peeps.She just had to eat one of the pink bunnies before we left, so I had one, too!After church, we went to Jamie's grandparents' house for lunch and an egghunt.Lily, Nathan, and Elijah were waiting patiently for the eggs to be hidden.Finally, it was time for the big egg hunt...It took FOREVER for them to find the green egg placed above the hose. It was hilarious. Finally, Elijah found it.Keely was having fun just holding onto the real Easter eggs. Lily was super happy to have found one of the money eggs! Yay, Ice Cream money!

Meet Sushi

Sushi is Lily's birthday present. She has been wanting a kitten for a long time, and we made her wait so that we could give Jambalaya all of our attention. ( She has also had the name picked out for a long time, too!) Sushi is a Tonkinese kitten, and her mother's name is Bella. Tonkinese kittens are a mixture of Siamese and Burmese. We will be going to pick her up on May 14th- the purrfect time since Lily's birthday is on the 17th. Isn't she beautiful! Lily cannot wait for her birthday present!

Goodbye Jambalaya...

We said goodbye to our 17-year-old cat this morning. We were sitting outside crying (all 3 of us) when Lily said, "It is a good thing that Jesus died for us so that Jambalaya can go to Heaven. I am so glad that Nana Claire will get see Jambalaya again today. She will be so happy to have her. Do you think Jambalaya will see Moses and Noah too?" I am so thankful that Lily knows what Easter is all about.

We will all miss Jo-Jo (Jambalaya) forever. She was the most perfect cat in the world. Our house is just not the same without her. I am so thankful that God made cats.

We Love Epcot!

Standing outside the French spot in Epcot- we were going to eat a turkey and brie cheese baguette, along with some delicious chocolate mousse. Lily also wanted a chocolate croissant!
Paris also had lots of things about Beauty & the Beast, one of Lily's favorites.
We can't forget- Marie- she will always be my favorite cat!
Lily was thrilled to meet Belle for the first time. The Beast had already left for the evening.
We were walking around the different countries that evening- see the Japanese drums in the background. They were so amazing!
Standing outside Italy, we decided that we needed to eat some pizza there...
But, Lily wanted spaghetti and meatballs. So, we ate at the Italian restaurant. They had the best pizza ever, along with some awesome servers. All of their ingredients are shipped directly from Italy, and it was obvious. The pizza was perfect! We can't wait to eat there again next time.

Lily's Pictures- Part 2

Lily was really excited about taking pictures in Disney. She also wanted to switch places and have her picture taken in certain spots, like this one above...
Here are a few of her pictures she took in China @ Epcot...
We had to stop and take a picture of this chair. She just thought it was beautiful!
Of course, she had to take a picture of the lion...
She only took about 75 pictures in China while we were there this time!

I still have lots more pictures! :0)

Meeting Sully...and Mike

After she met Sully, she just had to have a little Sully. He is so cute, and we knew he definitely wanted to come home with us.
We met Mike last time, so he did not get a lot of attention from Lily. She was thrilled to see Sully for the first time.
She finally walked over to see Mike when Baba needed a hug from Sully, too!
They were both excited to meet these monsters. We are all excited for the new movie to come out!

More pictures will be on here tomorrow!

Toy Story Mania

These pictures were from our wait to see Buzz... which turned into a wait to see Woody at the last minute. She loves them both, but Buzz is her favorite. Toy Story Mania was also one of our favorite rides!!! SO much fun!
Our little picture queen... she seriously loves to have her picture taken.
This is a classic Princess Lily shot. Did I mention how much she loves it when everyone calls her Princess at Disney World? I love that everyone does that, too. That is such a great idea that someone came up with years ago.
She is in the luggage where Jessie was with Woody in Toy Story 2...then, Buzz left and Woody came to replace him---
Lily said, "I was a little nervous about Woody. He was SOOOO TALL!"

Yes, I still have a lot more pictures. I haven't posted this much in forever! :0)

A Single Rider and Disney Junior

Jamie was posing with Lily after waiting in the single rider line for the Rock'n RollerCoaster. We are so thankful for that line. Jamie was able to get in-and-out of rides that Lily cannot ride on...yet. She keeps telling us when she is a little taller then we can all ride together!
Standing outside waiting for the doors to open for the Disney Junior Playhouse.
Inside waiting to see the performance for the 2nd time. Lily knew what was coming, and she was so excited to see it again. She loves watching Jake & the Neverland Pirates, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and Little Einsteins.
Here she is during the show waiting for the gold doubloons to fall from the ceiling.
Here are Jake and Cubby... Cubby always says, "Oh Coconuts!" So, Lily likes to say it, too.
And don't forget Skully, their parrot friend! This show was absolutely wonderful. I am so glad that we waited in line to go see this one. It is definitely something we will go see again and again.
