Today at the grocery store, Eddy was getting all kinds of compliments. Not only was she walking like such a big girl while holding on to the cart, but she was sporting a pair of princess sunglasses and a headband.

It didn’t take me long to realize how close to Disneyland we would be, and since this has been my greatest wish for the past few months to take Eddy to Disney (while she was still under 3 and free, of course), we decided to take advantage, and Nathaniel gave me a very special Disney day for my birthday...Read More
