About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Epcot

Epcot! My first time ever and I was blown. away. They were clebrating their annual Flower and Garden Festival and it was lovely! We even lucked into meeting Cinderella's stepmother and the wicked step-sisters. The sisters were a hoot, especially the one on the right. They certainly knew their parts!

Even Tinkerbell was there with her own Butterfly garden and lots of fairy fun!

Katie found all the fairies and did crayon rubbings in various locations. When she was done she was presented with a crown and fairy seeds.

A cute BIG shop in Japan. This is where Mandy got her Pokemon Gengar shirt. She loves that shirt and people kept stopping her telling her they liked it, too.:)

That evening we dined at Chef de France (in- you guessed it- France). Remember the movie, Ratatouille? Lobster bisque, salmon, ratouille and Creme Brulee for me.:) Needless to say that with all the walking we did that week I still gained weight! As we were eating our Creme Brulee the fireworks started right outside the restaurant. It was absolutely magical! (Thanks, Alicia!)
Katie's face says it all.

It looks like a wonderful time! The stepsisters reminded me of a few weeks ago during church. Someone asked for prayers for their stepsister. Hannah leaned over to me with a kind of mortified look and asked if she was evil! Kids are amazing!
