Do you remember this scene from A Christmas Story?

Mr. Parker: It's a Major Award!
Swede: Shucks, I wouldn't know that. It looks like a lamp.
Mr. Parker: What is a lamp, you nincompoop? It's a Major Award. I won it!

This is how I felt after seeing this blog post of one of my favorite food blogs.

How cool is that? I am so excited too, because I have never tried REAL Maple Syrup and have been meaning to buy some. I didn't even enter a contest. They were just nice enough to choose one of their followers for this gift.
I don't know if I have mentioned on here that my newest hobby/obsession is FOOD. I have discovered that I not only love to eat good food, but I love to create it. It is so much fun. I have several food blogs that I follow and am always trying out new recipes. If I ever get a better camera I believe I will become a "Foodie" (food blogger) myself. For now, I am just thrilled about my "MAJOR AWARD"! :D
A BIG thanks to Brooks and Lindsay for their generosity and their yummy blog.

Disneyland Recap

I would love to say its because I have been busy, but really I have been too much of a slacker to post about our trip to the beloved DISNEYLAND. Our little family loves this place. If we lived closer and were richer we would go several times a year, but as it is... we try to go every few years. This was Aram's first trip there. We had fun, even though the weather was not warm enough and it was busier for this time of year (in my opinion).

Aric and Jasper trying to pull the Sword out of the Stone.

"Horse, Horse", Aram hollered as soon as he saw the carousel.

So much to see, no time for kisses...

I can't remember what he was pointing to... :(

Daddy and his kids in front of the Castle

Definitely the "Happiest place on Earth" for Aric.

Aram with the Mickey hat (that we did not buy, but thought it was too cute not to take a picture) and his '1st Visit' button.

My cute girl with her beautiful smile and her Minnie hat that she got here when she was 4.

Going 'Jungle Cruise' in

No Aric in this picture, but at least Aram is looking.

Having lots of fun...

In 'Bugs Land' (note the giant clover in the background).

Getting ready to go on 'Flik's Flyers'

Jasper got to meet her 2 favorite fairies...
and Tinkerbell!

Aram loved most of the rides because there were CARS involved!

Big smiles for Big fun!

Autopia cars. Jasper was a great driver.

Aram was shocked to come face to face with his favorite thing in the world... LIGHTNING MCQUEEN!! It was so cute, he just stared at him like he was overwhelmed.

Daddy and Aram on the Autopia ride.

Do these faces scream fun, or what?

Jasper (the pirate) and Aram with Mater and McQueen.
I took many more pictures but these are the ones that I want to remember. Happy days with my sweet family!

Lots of posts to catch up on, but for now a picture of my newly toothless little 6 year old! It is a rite of passage when you lose both of your front teeth, right?
