Best Night Ever.

So, we are planning on going to Disney when we're in Florida in April.  Everyone says that the best way to meet the Princesses is to have Breakfast with the Princesses in the big castle.  So that's what we planned on doing.  Little did we know that it books up months in advance!!!  It's already completely booked for the entire time we will be in Florida!  We were so bummed, so Marc decided to make it up to us by taking us on an impromptu family outing last night.  First stop was dinner at Chef's restaurant - Poppy was in her glory with her huge bowl of pasta...

Then it was off to see all of the princesses at Disney on Ice!!!  We had amazing seats, and Poppy managed to get popcorn, cotton candy and a crown with Mickey Mouse ears!  She was in complete awe of all of the princesses and the music and ice skating.  By the time Snow White came out, she couldn't even contain herself and she just stood up and started dancing in the aisle.  It was so stinking cute!

So between being able to eat all of her favorite foods all night long, and seeing all of her beloved princesses and mickey and minnie, I'm pretty sure this was Poppy's favorite night of all time.  And of course, I don't have any pictures of the ice show because Marc and I were too busy staring at Poppy and seeing her reaction to everything.

Well hello there.  I think that may have been my longest blogging break ever.  I finally feel like I'm slowly coming out of the fog I've been living in for the past 2 months.  Since the day I found out I was pregnant, I have been sooo tired.  Like incomprehensibly tired.  And not only is belly baby sucking up all of my energy, but my other baby has decided to rub it in by waking up in the middle of the night, almost every night for the past couple of weeks.  I think we've finally broke that cycle and she's back to sleeping through the night, and as of Wednesday, I will be done with my first trimester, so I should start feeling back to normal.

So here are the only pictures I have from the last 2 weeks and they are from this morning.  That's right, I literally have not even turned my camera on for 2 weeks - and it took me a few minutes to get back into the swing of things when I did finally turn it on.  But anyways, Poppy had so much fun ice skating a few weeks ago, that we decided to take her skating at the outdoor rink downtown this morning.  She was so excited...

They didn't have any skates with the double blades, so I don't think she felt as secure on these skates.  She kept saying over and over, "Daddy, hold on tight!  Don't let go daddy!"

And then finally she declared that "It's too icy today.  Too slippery.  All done with ice skating, too icy."

And so we called it a day.

Last night we went ice-skating with my family...

She was pumped to get out on the ice...

I love the look on her face in this picture...

She was a little hesitant at first, but within minutes she was giggling and asking daddy to go faster with her.  This morning when we asked her what she did last night, she said "I went wheeeeeeeeeee!"  Could this little girl be any cuter?!

Happy New Year!

Last night was our annual new year's eve dinner at the Korea House.  Poppy was in her glory.  This girl loves food- all different types of food.  But when you give her Korean food, she literally gets giddy.  It's so cute.  And check out her new trainer chopsticks that santa brought her.  It's unbelievable how well she can use them, and she asks for them at almost every meal now.  We finished the night off with a stop at our favorite dessert shop and little miss was WIRED by the time she got to bed.  And I was so proud of myself that I made it up until 10:00pm!!! (considering I've been going to bed at 8:00 lately)

After all of the party, party, partying we've been doing lately, it was so nice to finally have a day to relax at home.  Poppy and I stayed in our jammies all day and loved every minute of it.  I decided to finally tackle a recipe from my new Julia Child's cookbook.  I went for the Reine de Saba (chocolate and almond cake) and holy cow!!!  All 3 of us agreed that this is the the best cake we've ever had!  And it was actually really easy to make!  Seriously, it was soooo good.

While I was in the kitchen pretending to be on Julie & Julia, and Marc was tackling the downstairs bathroom makeover, Poppy was tearing up the living room.  It's funny to watch as her imagination develops.  She loves hiding under her blankie, pretending to read to Ratty.  Oh, and today she told me that she had monsters (big blue ones) hiding under bed.  How does she even know what a monster is, or that they hide underneath beds?  And no, she hasn't seen Monsters, Inc.  Anyways, so I helped her build a little fort and she was as happy as a clam playing in it.

And then when she saw that I was attempting to take a pic of her in her fort, she freaked out.  "No, mommy!  I hiding!!!  No pictures while I hiding!  Don't ruin it mommy!"

She reluctantly let Lola join her club, but no adults were allowed.


The other day I asked Poppy what she thought we should name the baby.  Her answer, "Um, Thomas, or Percy, Snow White, Tinkerbell, or Toby".  Disney characters and Thomas trains.  Awesome.
