The day finally arrived, the day we've been waiting for months for. We finally got to visit Harry Potter World!!

Here we are standing very excitedly in the long line for the Harry Potter ride. (If I had known that I was going to throw up later, I probably would not have been so excited.)

The constipation sensation that's gripping the nation. Yes, we bought some. 

It totally looks like Hogsmead, right? Minus the hoards of tourists and the telltale palm tree in the distance. Oh well.

Okay, ma, I'm reading to go to Hogwarts!

The best part about vacationing with your six cousins is all the opportunities for wrestling, tackling, and otherwise causing mayhem.

Yes, that's Luke squished in the middle.  He was loving it.

Here's how we spent our gorgeous Christmas day...

Luke loved the splash pad at our resort in Orlando!


Christmas Stockings

We had our first ever us-only Christmas celebration this morning, which we celebrated with pancakes, coffee, and stockings full of gifts each other.  Luke's stocking contained an orange, a ball, and ten matchbox cars.  We didn't spend much on this little guy, and yet he was the happiest kid in the world that morning, lining up his cars and zooming them all over the floor.  And the orange, of course, he ate with breakfast.

It was a daddy-son date to Breton Village last night to see all the Christmas trains. Luke was in "choo choo" heaven.


Sam's Christmas Present

It's a digital SLR camera! Just in time for Christmas! Woo hooooo. Sam has already "become a total geek" about it (his words, not mine) which means he's probably subscribed to 50 photography blogs and listens to photography podcasts in his free time. I'm not complaining, as long as I can just sit back and enjoy the great pictures.

We had a wonderful afternoon with family yesterday, but unfortunately I left my camera at home. If I can get any pictures from other people, then I will make a post for yesterday.  In the meantime I will make up for it by posting 3 pictures today.

We started a tradition last year of buying Luke a yearly ornament.  This evening we purchased a felt airplane ornament for him, and now he is in love with his "ewww" (he calls airplanes "eww", which we finally figured out is the sound that they make when they fly).

Finally, an ornament I'm allowed to touch!

Sam gave Luke a haircut this afternoon, and now he looks like a totally different person. Of course it could be the glasses...
