Bursting with Pride- Mommy's Glowing

Carson had his first dentist appointment last week. I thought it went very well and thought it was because his dental hygenist is a personal friend of mine dating back to the late '80's. She is a super sweet, gentle person and Carson loved her!

Well, she just emailed me and I am bursting with pride. Have to share what she wrote:

Before I let any more time go by, I wanted to tell you how adorable Carson was at his dental appointment. He is a doll and that is truly rare for a 2 year old to let us look in the mouth on the first visit...let alone polish teeth. You are a great mom and you must have done all the 'right' things to prepare him for his visit.

Debbie, you're the best! You just made my day!!!!

More Maui Please

Trying to pick just a few favorite pics out of the 350 that we took was challenging! And we haven't even seen the hundreds of other pics taken by the Leo's and Hook's!

Maui was amazing! The kids had a fantastic time and played very well together. Nothing out of the ordinary for three two and a half year olds! Even the airplane ride was pretty uneventful, phew!

Our rooms were awesome! The main hang out area was a living room, kitchen and dining room. There was a bedroom on each side of that for the Leo's and the Hooks. We were just down the hall a little ways in our own bedroom but it had a washer/dryer and kitchenette! Talk about making it an easy vacation!

The weather cooperated pretty darn well considering it is "winter" in Hawaii ;-) Only one or two rain showers and two days of gale force winds.

I sprinkled a few videos in. I promise they are all very short and cute. Please turn up your volume to really enjoy them. The high pitched giggles and voices are worth it!

Before we even got on the plane, the boys discovered how to keep themselves entertained. I thought it was great! Daddy wasn't so sure.

First time in his own seat!

Luau time yet?
Happy family!
This was absolutely hilarious! Eloise and her daddy went up on stage to learn how to hula during the luau. I didn't think Carson would be interested so he and I sat below the stage to take pictures. All of the sudden he snuck up on the stage front and center. He LOVES to be the center of attention, wonder where he got that from ;-)
No encouragement needed!
I heart Eloise!
