Glimpses of OUR life --yesterday and today!!

 Our daughter who works for Walt Disney World is HOME for a visit and to meet her New nephew!!!
So since Miss C has some make-up dance classes to do, Aunt Stacie got to go and watch her dance!!!Actually Grand-dude was off and he got to go too!!We were originally going to be at Disneyland during the last few days, but since it is raining and cold there, we decided to stay home and just do  ordinary things and let her have a GLIMPSE of  our everyday life!!!
 This dance class is for age 3 up to age 5 and Miss C and her friend Miss B did very well and kept up with all their Bigger girl moves!!!
 Aunt Stacie holding her precious nephew!!
 From Ballet, we headed to downtown Gilbert to one of our favorite places to go for Breakfast, the Farm House!!Gilbert is considered a TOWN, not a city and has year after year been voted the Best Town to raise a family, it is also due to it's very LOW crime rate!!!We love GILBERT!!!
 We had to wait for a table, a very common occurrence.

 I love the history of these old houses turned into businesses. I also love the wide wooden planked floor!!
 We came home while the kiddos took a nap, Stacie and I sat outside on my new porch and she loved my glider!!!
 She also loved the BIG check my hubby got as a souvenir for Manager of the year!!
This check will be turned into a trip very soon!!!b
 After nap time, we headed over to our favorite boutique!!!Love this store!!Shop there alot!!!

 Holding baby Liam while the girls tried on clothes!!
 What a GREAT SUNSET we came out too!!
 This morning our Son-in-Law had a fraternity BBQ reunion to go to with his family, so Stacie and I decided to ride along, drop them off and we would go to lunch. Well by the time we arrived at the Park, the STORM had hit, rain and wind!!!!
 So Corie took the kids over to show everyone and said I have to go, it is freezing!!!It was 51 degrees outside!!!
 We went to Scottsdale fashion Square Mall and Hit Marcella's for lunch!!!

 The sign says Great taste something????I hope I learn some Italian real fast!!!
 Aunt Stacie loves this little Man!!
 By now, the guys moved their Frat BBQ to Peter Piper Pizza!!!So we left the Mall and went over for a little while!!!
Mommy and Miss C playing some video games!!!This was her first time in a kiddie pizza place!!!
There is a first time for everything!!!
 As promised we headed over to the TRAIN PARK!!!

 WE WERE the ONLY ONES at the PARK!!!!
Seriously, only people there!!

being that is was so cold out, the steam was really big!!
 NO one was at the park today!!

 And last, a Carousel ride!!!It is so fun for us to share a bit of our everyday life with Aunt Stacie!!
She really has had fun with her darling niece and nephew!!!

Hi Jamie Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this evening. I am so tickled that Stacie has came home and is spending some quality time with the family. Like you said she got to be a part of your day to day lives.

Corey looks wonderful and Liam well he is just absolutely, heavenly precious. Love that little face.

Boy your little Missy is sure growing up fast. I loved her dance photos. Love to see her go to dance.

Stacie looks so wonderful. She was sure having fun holding up Dad's paper check wasn't she?

Hope you are well sweet friend. I think of you often. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

This is so cute Jamie!
That baby boy is just so precious! And I loved seeing the pics of little Miss C dancing!
Can't wait until Addison can do that!
We had upper 40's to about 50 all week and it felt so warm!
Today were supposed to get a big snow storm and I for one am sick of winter!
Gilbert looks like such a nice little town!
Hugs friend,

just call me jo said...

I've actually been to Gilbert.(So rare that I've visited one of your spots.) What a fun few days. Stacie has to move fast to keep up with you. You are such a pace setter. Love the sweet family fun.

Hi Mimi. Thanks for dropping in. I enjoyed the pictures and catching up on what's happening in your life. I've been at Disneyland when it was raining. It's much better when it's dry. lol. Doing every day things is a lot of fun too. I'm glad you enjoyed your family. Maybe next time it will be Disneyland. We haven't been there in about 3 years now. That's about as long as we've stayed away since 1955 when it first opened. I almost feel like I own the place. LOL
Have a great day.
Hugs & blessings,

It is fun to do everyday things when Stacie is in town and show her what we like to do on our normal outings. Camdyn in her red tu tu is too die for and Lil Liam makes my heart melt too. LOVE them! Glad we have 4 more days of fun with Stace!:)

Corie said...

The comment your friend left about owning Disneyland made me laugh....we go so much I kinda feel the same or at least that I know every nook and cranny of both D-land and D-world!:)

Howdy Jamie!
O lil Liam is so sweet!
What a pretty baby he is.
Awesome grandchildren.

Lil Miss C's red dancing clothes are cute. Seeing little dance is so sweet. Love this.

You are so blessed to have two daughters! I sometimes wished I had had 10 children!!! Love my children, but you are really blessed to have 2 daughters and a son to love plus a s-i-l.

May you have a super time while all your children are near!

How nice to have her visit. Can't wait for my Gabby to come home for spring break. I definitely, need for you to send me some pictures from the trapeze school! I love Le cirque line from G45 but don't really have any good pictures to go with them and you on the high wire I would love!
Hugz, Z

Grams said...

Jamie, some of our best trips have been in the rain when you get the place to yourself. Enjoy the time when the kids "let" you wait for a table and still shopwith you. Our oldest granddaughter is the only one that still let's us do grown up stuff LOL. Have fun Kathy.
