Mary Poppins in Philly

No better way to start our jolly holiday than by seeing Mary Poppins! We got to meet the cast before the show (unplanned surprise) and got autographs after! Great night! Nearly 3 hours of sitting and Logan was into it the entire time! #bestshowever!

The ABLE Act is happening!!!

From my super fabulous mom...
I am overcome with a flood of emotions....just yesterday Kayla didn't have the same right as her 2 year old brother to save for the future. Just yesterday she was not provided the same opportunities to have money in an account as her brother. Just yesterday Kayla could not receive monetary gifts. Just yesterday Kayla would have been penalized for trying to work to provide for herself. But today? Today is bright and amazing and changed. Today we celebrate this victory! Today we look forward to Kayla's future and know it is so much brighter! Today would not have been possible without numerous parents, politicians, advocates and organizations fighting for basic simple rights for individuals with disabilities. Today I am so thankful for this girl and everything amazing she has brought into our lives. Today is the day we have waited for, worked towards and dreamed of for a very long time....

Santa Selfie!

Because when you are selfie with Santa. 
This happened between 2 of my mom's photo sessions. I walked up to Santa with my iPod and said "let's take a selfie". My mom got these great pics of Santa and me. Another best day ever!!!

Miss You Can Do It 2014 was so wonderful!

I loved being a contestant in Miss You Can Do It 2014! It was amazing and I love all of my new friends! I wish this happened everyday!
The pageant included interviews at a castle with judges including Sierra McCormick from Ant Farm, a party with Disney princesses, and outfits for casual wear and evening gown! I loved every minute of it!
Thank you Miss You Can Do It for making this such an amazing weekend and I can't wait to do it again! Dreams do come true!

This is a video with highlights from the pageant and then more pics below it:

Frozen's Elsa and Anna - sisters squeeze!

Kayla was so excited to see Frozen's Queen Elsa and Anna again after meeting them 6 months ago in Epcot. Now they've moved to Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom and the lines are huge, but we made it to see them and the reception we got was nothing short of amazing!

How could they remember us? or how could they not remember us!? :-)

Suprise Spring Break in Disney!

That's right! We took a surprise spring break trip to Disney and had an amazing week full of our favorites and some new adventures! Lots of pics and videos to come!

This video is from the new Festival of Fantasy parade featuring Elsa & Anna and Rapunzel. It was awesome! Kayla and Logan were dressed as Mary "Kayla" Poppins and Baby Bert on this day - lucky for us the costumes still fit their growing bodies :-)
