I was on a mission to get this done tonight!
This week’s main theme was meeting up with the family in Anaheim. I tried to make the layouts not all about Disney as I am working on inserts now for the stories of the entire trip. This week I used yet another kit from the daily digi–Daydreamer. I really loved the colors, and the theme seemed to go well with all that went on last week.

Here we have the story of Holly’s tonsils and a photo of Marie after she taste-tested her first veggies. I remembered to take a photo while trying on a dozen pair of sneakers before the trip–what an experience it is to find shoes that fit me!! Two of my favorite photos from our weekend are on this page as well….love the backlit one of the girls, as well as the b/w image of my brother with his kids and Holly as we waited for my mom and aunt to arrive. An hour into the trip and they were all already all smiles!
This might be my favorite page of the whole year so far. I LOVE that I was able to get Holly doing her twirling…she absolutely LOVES dresses that spin way, way out. We can’t find any in stores that have enough volume–but thankfully she has a grandmother who is one heck of a seamstress! Holly’s closet is filled with custom made twirly dresses!
Holly had the cutest quote about palm trees I recorded on the card on the upper right, and the Week in Review card summed up our week as usual. The journaling on the card reads:
Sunday Holly returned home from The Farm. It’s always so hard for her to say goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa. ~ Monday Holly had a really sore throat so we kept her home from school and went to the doctor. She tested negative for strep, but we were directed to go to an ENT because of her tonsils. ~ Tuesday we learned that Holly will probably need surgery on her tonsils soon. Steph came over and watched the girls while Mom tried to get some last minute shopping done. ~ Wednesday Mom found the cutest shoes EVER. So ready for our trip! ~ Thursday we arrived in California! While we were waiting to check-in The Gray’s arrived, and Holly was attached to Madison from that moment on. ~ Friday was our first day at Disney. Early favorite rides were The Haunted Mansion and The Thunder Mountain Railroad. Jenny and I were brilliant at working the fastpass system! We all stayed out way too late. ~ Saturday the group was spilt into two most of the day. Vacation is tiring!
