Alexandra and Danny's Wedding

I got to fly into Orlando for my friend Alexandra's Wedding. It was a lot of fun to go back to Florida, even though it was a short trip. I stayed with Amanda Pickard in Orlando, and it was a lot of fun to catch up with her. The next day I went to the temple with Alex and Danny. There were lots of people from the Fort Lauderdale Ward there. Then I drove down to Fort Lauderdale with Lisa Davis and Marlin King. I stayed with Shaunna Sanders, and she had set up a fondue party at Chris Brown's House. Shauna Leinweber, Amy McCaan, Shannon De Mare, and Meesa Jhonson were all there. I was also able to go to the ward Easter party, and also see some of my friends from The Little Gym before going to the reception. The ward had helpped out a lot with the reception, Kyla Bodily did the flowers, with Meesa's help, and the Browns catered, and the Carters helped serve, and Maya did the pictures. It was all beautiful. I was so excited for Alex and Danny, and now they are living in our condo for a little while, and I am excited about that also!

Natalie is Potty Trained...well most of the time!

Allan's mom has been putting on the pressure to have all the will be 3 year olds potty trained, because she is taking us all on a Disney Cruise next January, a week after Natalie's third birthday. I was a little skeptical because when Natalie was born, I had 3 in diapers! I was totally unsuccessful at potty training Hailey until she was ready, but Natalie had been showing some signs of interest, so I took her into the bathroom Monday morning, took her pants off, and sat in there with her all day and put her on the potty when she started to go the first few times. After the second time she got the idea, but for a good 3 days we were going every 5 minutes. She does really well now most of the time, and I am very proud of my big girl. She is the youngest of the 4 cousins that will be 3, and the only one potty trained!
