Turn Up Your Volume!

I can not tell you how proud my husband is of me now. For the past little while, he keeps asking me if I've figured out how to get music playing on our blog... and I've finally done it!

So, here's a quick explanation of why those songs are there and what they represent.

1. Savage Garden: I Knew I Loved You--- Matthew and My Song. Every word of it has been true since the day that I met him.

2. Billy Currington: Good Directions--- Kylie and My Favorite Song. It used to be just my favorite song, but we would sing it together and dance around... so now it's her favorite song. She knows all the words and sings it loud and proud! She requests it everytime we're in the car. Matthew calls home when it's on the radio for Kylie to get all excited and sing it.

3. Alan Jackson: Drive--- The song that was on the radio when we got in the car after my ultrasound and we found out baby #2 was a girl... I was floating on cloud 9, how I was coherent enough to remember the song is beyond me.

4. Lionel Richie: All Night Long--- Kacey and My Song. Her first year of life, that is what I sang to myself to keep the post partum away.... rocking her, night after night (after night) and she cried and cried. One night, I swear I got 20 minutes of sleep... if that.

5. Aha!: Take On Me--- Matthew's Favorite Song. It dates him... you're old babe! He was graduating high school, when I was still in middle school :P

6. Rod Stewart: Maggie May--- We named our dog after this song. It suited her... "all you did was wreck my bed and in the morning kicked me in the head... you stole my heart, I couldn't leave you if I tried." Maggie's had a lot of health troubles, but she's a member of our family and we're in it for the long haul.

6. Heartland: I Loved Her First--- Love This Song. It really hits me having girls. As Matthew says, our girls are not dating until they're 33. Their teenage years should be fun :)

8. Evan and Jaron: Crazy For This Girl--- Reminds me of when Matthew and I were engaged :)

**Part 2**

The second batch:

Kylie's favorite character, Minnie Mouse... and the whole reason we go! Oh yeah... sporting Daddy's shades!
We won "Dream Fast Passes" for a bunch of rides good for all day... we got 4. (Needless to say Matthew was in 7th Heaven!)
This is Kylie's first time driving the bumper cars.
We went to see the Playhouse Disney Show.
Tinkerbell face painting, which I can only assume will be a MUST from here on out.
Long day.
This picture is priceless (like my new stroller... thanks Yaya and Papa!)... Anyway, Matthew went real quick to the ride that shoots you up really fast. The line was short, we were right there. Kylie was heartbroken that she couldn't go too, because she was Daddy's little partner for everything. Crying does not even begin to describe it, "please, take me, take me... I not too little, you're too big!" then Kacey joined in for sisterly support. Everyone was looking at us... it was traumatic.
This was to make up for the ride he went on without her.
