Although I should really be cleaning the house, I am taking silly quizzes instead.....

You Are 56% Evil

You are evil, but you haven't yet mastered the dark side.
Fear not though - you are on your way to world domination.

You Are 27 Years Old
Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.
13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.
20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.
30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!
40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

"There's a new game
We like to play you see
A game with added reality
You treat me like a dog
Get me down on my knees"

Yawn, dancing is so boring without a little spice.

Welcome to the world little one

My friend Brig had her little girl Elish Kristin At 7:00pm EST, March 10th, 2006, weighing in at 9 pounds, 11 ounces, and 23.4 inches.


Was loads of fun! What should have taken under 6 hours to get there took closer to 8. There was construction at this spot where mapquest was telling us to change to like 3 different freeways within a miles distance and the signs were all screwy so we ended up going to wrong way for a bit. We got to our 1st hotel checked in, got room service ordered for Grama and the kids and then Mr. H and I took off for Medieval Times it was great, silly fun.

Sunday we woke up early to get to our Disney hotel, The Grand Californian - we checked in, gave them all our luggage and got our park tickets and headed out. We were to meet our friends at Space Mountain at 9:30 am. Luckily they were running late too, so we actually met up in line. They all went on Space Mountain, while Grama, Ry and I went to see "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" where we ruined Ry for all 3-D viewing experiences in the future. Some parts scared her, so now she won't wear the glasses to any other movie. We then went to Fantasyland and found some princesses and met up w/ everyone later. Ry and Grama went to nap later on, and when we went to get them for the fireworks that night, Ry wasn't feeling well at all. So we skipped the fireworks, and just went to the restaurant in the hotel and then to bed.

Monday, was California Adventure Park. First thing we did was get a portrait of the kids drawn. Took much longer than I thought it would. All the girls had a Princess lunch scheduled for 12:20. It was raining this day, so when we showed up, we were told we could eat outside or wait til the next seating at 12:50. Even though it was covered outside, w/ Ry being sick we waited. We had our lunch while the boys played. We met back up and Daddy came w/ us to try some kiddie stuff. We saw some more characters, and the Muppets 3-D movie. We all met up after that. Grama and Ry went on their way, so we could all go on The Tower of Terror, which was awesome. I screamed the whole time, but I loved it. This park closed at 6, so we hung a bit as a group, then our friends went on their way. Grama and Ry went back to hotel and we took Taylor over to Disneyland for a couple more hours. Tried to go on Space Mountain, since I didn't go the day before, but it was closed. Finally took the monorail back to hotel. Mom suggested we go have Sushi and she'd get room service with the kids. We went to one of the other hotels and had sushi. It was the first place Mr. H had ever had sushi when we went many years before. It continued to rain all night and at about 4am the alarms in the hotel went off. I yelled at everybody to get out, but it was a false alarm. They didn't know if it was the rain or what set it off but everything was fine. A few more hours of sleep, then back to Disneyland.
Tuesday - we never met up w/ our friends again, dead cell phone, so we all did the smaller stuff for Ry and Taylor hadn't been on any of it yet. Filled up the kids autograph books from all the characters and stayed til the end. Saw the parade and back to bed.
Wednesday - checking out of hotel, but going to do some more shopping, so they will keep the car. Shopped and then went to the beach for a bit. Had lots of fun. Buried Taylor in the sand, played in the cold water and collected some shells. We finally left at about 3:30, which was silly, we should have stayed later so not to take 2 hours to get 40 miles in rush hour traffic. Oh well, we stopped at some outlets along the way and ate dinner and finally got back home after midnight.
That is the California update!
