A "Magical" past few days!

We have had a whirlwind, but very FUN long weekend! On Saturday we watched the Gooding Class of 2011 graduate. During graduation, Wesley received a scholarship! It was a scholarship that is given to the "most outstanding junior." It was a wonderful surprise. Wesley was so honored, and we were both thrilled! It will only pay a fraction of his tuition, but that is just a little bit sooner we will be able to pay off student loans! We are counting down until this time next year when Wesley will graduate too!

How did we celebrate the scholarship?? We went to DISNEY WORLD! Actually the trip with my family had been planned for months, but it was perfect timing to leave right after Wesley got the scholarship! It was Wesley's first trip to Disney, so we wanted to make sure he saw all of the parks while we were there! We all had a wonderful time at the parks during the day, and then my dad treated us all to nice dinners at night. My computer is not letting me upload pictures to blogger right may be a good thing because I took over 350! My parents gave us a new camera for Christmas, and we got to open it when we got to Orlando. I think I captured every single second! I'll try to upload JUST A FEW pics again later! There are a lot on facebook already.

26th Birthday!

I have definitely felt LOVED and CELEBRATED today and this past weekend! Thank you all for the phone calls, text messages, cards in the mail, voicemail, facebook posts, etc! It has been a great birthday!

Welsey took me out to celebrate this past Friday night. We had dinner at Bonefish, which is one of my favorite places to eat! Then on Saturday we also went out for breakfast (which is something that we NEVER do unless we are on vacation)!

Saturday night we helped host a baby shower that was given in honor of a couple who is expecting their first baby. Hayden is in the CRNA school class above Wesley. I made these baby cupcakes that I found on Pinterest!

Sunday night we went to dinner with Nick, Joy, and Jillian and then went to the Christmas program at church. We were all impressed with the caliber of the show. They used all sorts of lights and lasers. Not at all what I was expecting since we don't go to a huge church!

Then tonight was our Sunday school class Christmas party! We all brought a dish. I made twice baked potato casserole which was a success....again, thank you, Pinterest!

We had a lot of fun playing games. Cami, who I have named our "Class President" came up with games that were inspired from the TV show Minute to Win-It! They were all pretty funny! Then we played a Christmas trivia game and exchanged Secret Santa gifts. We are so thankful that we have found this Sunday School class!

We are going to celebrate my birthday with my family when we all get to Orlando this weekend! Can't wait to be in Disney World during Christmastime...especially since it will be Wesley's first trip to Disney!
