We survived

Well we survived and lived to tell about it. We left for Disney last Saturday morning and all we told Liv and Kerigan was that we were going on a road trip for the day. Morgan had been sick for over a week and with the advise of her doctor, Morgan stayed home with Grammy for the week,(which after seeing some of the kids in Disney her age I am glad she didn't look as miserable as those babies did). We left Marietta at 6:30AM and stopped only twice (once for breakfast and once at the GA-FLA line) yes, my girls are great travelers. We arrived in Orlando at 2:00PM and when we were finally exiting the interstate did the girls figure out where they were. We spent Saturday evening at the Disney Village and letting them see a little of Disney. We awoke on Sunday morning to start our day at Magic Kingdom. We arrived at MK at 9:00AM (the minute the gates opened) and we headed right for the Tea Cups. We were at MK nearly all day but did move over to Epcot to finish out our day with dinner with the Disney Princesses. The girls were able to meet Sleeping Beauty, Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, and Jasmine. The biggest surprise even for mommy and daddy was that the princesses sent Liv a brithday card signed by all of them for her birthday (now mind you we DID NOT tell anyone that it was her birthday on the 20th). On Monday we started our day at Animal Kingdom and then proceeded to Typhoon Lagoon. Typhoon Lagoon would have been fun but we bacame aware of a couple of things on this trip, since last summer Liv has developed a fear of water, fire, and fireworks. So needless to say we were only at the waterpark for one hour. Tuesday we went to MGM Studios where Kerigan got to dance in the High School Musical Pep Rally and Liv got to dance in the Playhouse Disney Musical Review. If you have kids you know what a big deal both of these are. We finished Tuesday at a Braves Spring Training Game. When Wednesday arrived we knew that Liv's fun factor card was on the verge of expiring so we went to Magic Kingdom that morning, rested for a couple fo hours at the hotel, and went back later that evening. Since Liv was wearing down we convinced the hotel to let us check out a day early and we decided to come home on Thursday instead of Friday. Which was fine by me because I was going through Morgan withdrawl. We have close to hundred photos that we took I will post of our favorite memories soon. We are looking forward to Spring Break next week, Kerigan and Liv have their first softball game on Saturday (I will post those pictures one day). I look forward to having a slow start up week but also just being back home.

Here we are

Well, I got in trouble by one of my many readers for not updating sooner. I am trying not to bore you guys so I thought approximately once a week would work. I guess we will see. This week has been a non-eventful week. Kerigan performed at PTA this past Thursday night which was too cute, but of course I am a little biased. Jason has been EXTREMELY busy at work which is unusual but we made it through even if we were like ships passing each other in the night. I started back to Tae-Bo this week, I forgot how much it can kick your booty but I enjoyed being back. Jason and I were able to have dinner with close friends on Friday Night before we all went to Ultimate Date Night at our church. They took our picture at church so I will have to post it. Kerigan and Liv spent the night with Mimi and Papa on Friday, we had to go and pick up Morgan ( Mimi isn't ready to tackle all three for a sleep over). We have a very busy weekend planned with my aunt and uncle in town so I will update again later.

This is a first....

I have always wanted to be truly internet savvy and be able to keep family and firends near and far updated on our lives here in Marietta. So let's see how well I do. Life at the O'Kelley house has been crazy the last couple of weeks. Jason was out in San Antonio two weeks ago so it was the girls and I and even though I haven't had them all by myself for days at a time we survived. I was humbled by how God showed me during the week how much Jason and I rely on each other to help with the girls. I was humbled by how much I truly treasure a husband that helps me out the way he does. I came to see that I am lucky to have a husband that is so involved in our family life the way he is. Since he has been back at home we have been non-stop. Church keeps us extremely busy but we are greatful for a church family like we have been given. We are preparing for Liv's 4th birthday and our family trip to Disney. The girls don't know that we are going and we don't plan on telling them until we actually arrive. Kerigan is in Kindergarten and loving it, Liv is in preschool 3 days a week, and Morgan is now 8 months old and is crawling everywhere and now pulling up. She is moving much quicker than the other two girls ever did so she is keeping us truly on our toes. For all of you that are reading this we are greatful for each of you and love having each of you in our lives.
