Happy Birthday Brandon

Today is Brandon's birthday so I wanted to take a minute to publicly announce what a wonderful man he is. (And totally embarrass him. **WARNING: Major sappiness ahead.**) Brandon is the greatest husband, father and friend and I am so blessed to have him as my eternal companion. He always makes me laugh, he is so considerate of others, he always helps out, he has such a good heart and he does the dishes. He is such a great and caring father and Ella adores him.
Happy Birthday Brandon, I love you!!!!

Okay, moving on... Of course we celebrated! Here's what we did.

We had dinner at my mom's house on Sunday and cake at my Dad's.
We decorated my Dad's Christmas tree and had some family-filled good times.

Me, Riley & Ashley
James, Eva, Brandon & Ella

Riley and Laura

The fam

Yes I made the cake, and no it's not for an eight year old girl. He wanted strawberry cake and I guess I got a little crazy with the pink decorations. It was good though.

Today we went to Disneyland with Brandon's mom, Deborah, and his sister, Lindsay.

We had an awesome breakfast buffet and Ella got to meet Minnie Mouse.

Captain Hook hung out with us and tried to steal our jewelry... sneaky sneaky

It was Ella's first time at Disneyland and she had a blast. Well, she slept a lot and got a little fussy when we tried to take her on Pirates of the Caribbean, but the rest of the time, she was having fun.

It was a little chilly, but luckily there was no rain.

Grams bought Ella a hat and gloves. They were a little big, so it looked like she had lobster claws. So cute.
We were pretty tired at the end of the day, but we had so much fun. And as you can see, the birthday boy had a great time.
