This year, we followed tradition and went to Disneyland with Ma-moo and Papa over Spring Break. We each got a 4 day parkhopper pass! We spent the whole first day in Disneyland, then we split our time between Cali Adventure and Disneyland the following three days. Here are a couple pictures of how much fun we had!

Here are all the kids with Mrs. Incredible! AKA Elastagirl.

We were also treated to Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square! Very delicious.

Thanks Ma-moo and Papa for the extremely fun trip!!!

Brittany got BRACES!

Yes it's true!! I got them on April Fools Day. Perfect timing! Here is the before shot....

And the after shot.

First they brushed my teeth with this really gritty toothpaste:

Then they put a bunch of plastic things that kept my lips apart in my mouth. Those were a BIT uncomfortable ;)

Then they glued in all the metal and wired me all up! I chose purple and blue bands.

They also gave me a huge bag full of stuff!! I got a Chamberlain Orthodontics shirt, a really expensive electronic toothbrush with lotsa gadgets, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, and a cute purple travel pouch with another toothbrush, ortho wax, etc. All for free! Whee!

They don't hurt very much anymore, but Tylenol and ortho wax definitely helps when they do!

I will get them adjusted in around 6 weeks, May 19, which just so happens to be my birthday. Happy birthday to me. I will get the bottom braces on in 6 months so some of the teeth that were pulled last year can finish growing in. I will be getting them off in 16-18 months.

Heres to my new smile!!!
