I know, I know, we swore we wouldn't be those parents that take their infant child to Disneyland, but that was before we had Elsie and didn't know we would have such a happy and content baby, it was also before Disneyland let you in free on your birthday which is why we went... for Micah's birthday. It was awesome, Elsie was amazing and was so excited about this happy world that she didn't understand. We rode teacups, Small world and the Haunted Mansion. We ate lunch in New Orleans Square and then shopped the shops on Main Street, oh and took tons of pictures. We left the park around three o'clock because we needed to get back home for Micah's birthday bonfire in our backyard, which was a total success and was exactly what he wanted. We had a camp out style party where we cooked our own hot dogs over the fire, made our own smores and just enjoyed the evening, so relaxing yet so fun.
So Elsie has a new nickname. We flew to northern Cali last weekend to visit Tricia and Leighton and the first thing Leighton said to Elsie was, "Aww there is the Ensor Nugget" and proceeded to call her that the entire weekend. Micah and I loved it. It is such a perfect word for our lil', well, nugget.
I would have posted pics the minute we got home but unfortunately came down with a cold, or have had severe allergy problems haven't decided which it is quite yet, hence the late post.
Enjoy some pics!
Elsie ready to go shopping in Walnut Creek
Elsie really captured the look we were going for, me on the other hand fell short.
This year our costumes were decided for us by Elsie. She asked if she could be a dragon, well not really asked but she has been roaring like a dragon for months so we figured that is what she wanted to be. So we themed our costumes around that. Micah was a knight and I was a fair maiden. We got dressed up for Micah's office party on Friday and then we did the same on Halloween for a friends party. Josh joined us on Halloween and thanks to my mom came up with a last minute costume, it was a kids Tony the Tiger costume that didn't fit but he worked it out and became as he said it "a ferocious tiger" I was laughing so hard at him. My mom did a fantastic job on his face paint.
