Marler Family Christmas

Cinderella's Castle all lit up for Christmas
Instead of buying each other more stuff, we all decided to take a trip together for Christmas this year. We went to Orlando for 4 days and took full advantage of the Park Hopper tickets. We made it to all four Disney parks in 3 days.

Here's the whole crew. I'm not kidding when I say that this is the best picture we got in a 10 minute span. I think the babies all know when we really want them to cooperate.
Until I saw these pictures, I had convinced myself that I haven't gained weight anywhere but my belly, but I'm seeing now that that's not true.

Hannah, Ellie, and Ian
After a busy day, the grandkids all hung out with Granny and Papi while the mommys and daddys took naps. As you can see, a Dora movie, some milk, and cereal make for 3 happy kids. Hannah actually is happy here. It's just hard to get a good picture of all three posing.
Papi and his girls

Uncle Jason and Hannah. These two absolutely love each other. Every time we're all together, they end up together. They crack each other up.

Papi and Hannah getting Uncle Nate. This is at the Rainforest Cafe. Except for the occassional "thunderstorm" complete with thunder and lightning, the kids had a great time.

This is Ellie showing why we call her Ellie Belly. One of her new tricks is to show you big belly, little belly. She's so funny when she sticks her belly out because she's actually so petite and thin. I think this has all been helped along by her Mommy's growing belly.

Daddy (Andrew) and Hannah riding the train. I can't count the number of times we rode the train on this trip. It's funny how we spend so much money on these trips, and the kids have the most fun the in hotel and on the trains and shuttles. Ian's favorite activity was riding the Monorail.

Here She Comes!

Sorry for the censorship, but I couldn't put my daughter up like that on the internet for all to see. I just thought this was really cute how the ultrasonographer put the arrow and the text on the picture.
I'm happy to say that I was right. I, with the help of my friends Emily and Brooke, have ultrasounded myself twice at work. Each time, we decided I was having a girl. Nathan refused to believe me. Hm.

Sweet profile.
How cool is this picture? I love the 3D ones. We tried for seriously 15 minutes to get a good shot of the face, but she keeps her arms up with her hands over her eyes. I think she's very shy.
One picture of her face. Looks like she already has the pouty face down.
Now that we know it's a girl, let the great name debate begin!
