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! 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!
Here we are in "The Princess and the Frog" garden. Love, love, love that movie!
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.


Mandy in Mexico!
Jeff and the girls in Norway with a giant troll!
Back in Mexico with Donald! (above)

Katie in Norway...
Beauty everywhere in China...


There was something to do at every turn...

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.:)
Eating a Moroccan lunch. Katie finished her baklava first.:)
Japanese garden...


Working on our first Kim Possible mission in England. They were educational, entertaining and FUN!

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!

We really enjoyed the Kim Possible missions. So much fun for the kids. And we loved the French restaurant. The flowers looked beautiful. Looks like you all had a fabulous time!
