February was a mellow month. We had fun baking banana bread, finger painting, and playing in the snow. We also had a fun trip to Disneyland for three days to look forward to at the end of the month!
A Day at Disneyland with Mommy Feb 4th On February 4th Layla and I spent a wonderful day at Disneyland just the two of us! We went up to get my pass taken care of before our big three day trip at the end of the month! We had a fabulous day. The weather was perfect and we saw so many special characters! It was such a fun day with my little princess!

At Pixie Hollow we saw Terrance
We also got to meet Rapunzel for the first time too! She has her own house in Fantasyland, we waited a long time to meet her but it was well worth it because she was adorable and just loved Layla, and Layla just loved her right back!

It was a special treat to meet Jasmine for the first time!
We always love seeing Belle!
And Tiana’s southern charm is infectious
Mommy even got to get in on a photo with Princess Tiana!
Just as we were about to get in line to see Minnie at her house in Toon Town, Goofy came out of a cast member’s doorway and ran up right behind Layla. He surprised her and gave her hugs and even had time to pose for a few photos! It was a special day indeed!
Next, we saw Minnie at her house in Toon Town and boy was she sweet!
Our Next stop was Mickey’s House right nextdoor to Minnie’s house. Layla ran up to him, gave him a huge hug, posed for photos then, turned around and said, “I love you!” It was the sweetest thing in the world! I almost cried! She was so sweet and sincere, it tugged at my heartstrings! Don’t we all love Mickey Mouse though!
Baking Banana Bread February 5th 2011 Layla helps in the kitchen all the time! She loves to place cucumbers, peppers, etc in salads after they are cut. She loves to sprinkle cheese on her scrambled eggs while they are being cooked, helping daddy make bread dough is also a favorite! We decided to bake some banana bread with some extra ripe bananas and Layla got to help! She helped by squishing the bananas with her hands although I am not too sure she enjoyed the feeling of mushy bananas between her fingers! She also helped to combine the premeasured dry ingredients for me! She is a wonderful kitchen helper! Our little Sous Chef!
Valentine’s Photos Every year we take photos and make Valentines for our family and friends! Here are some of the photos from this year’s Valentine Photo Shoot!
Finger Painting February 25th 2011
Layla loves to finger paint! Some days she uses her whole entire hand instead of just her fingers!
Nap February 26th 2011 “I’m not tired!” is what we heard just minutes before this picture was taken! This is how we found her sleeping when we checked on her at nap time! I would say definitely NOT tired, wink, wink!
Layla’s First Snow February 27th 2011 Uncle Dave T. is an avid snow boarder and a wonderful and thoughtful guy! After a day of snow boarding in the local mountains he thought that a cooler full of snow might be a great surprise for Layla! He was right! She got to touch it, taste it, have a little snow ball fight, and even build a mini snowman! This was her first “trip to the snow” brought to her own front yard where she was able to play in the snow barefooted!! Thank you for your thoughtfulness Uncle Dave T. We love you! Next year we will definitely go to the local mountains to play in lots of snow!
