Thank you to VBAndrea for the amazing Animal Kingdom outfit. I love all the adorable animals with the Mickey ears on the shirt and skirt. The little giraffe on the shirt is so cute. The different designs on the animals and fabric you chose for the skirt are so pretty. I'm excited that all three of us have coordinating outfits for Animal Kingdom day and the Sanaa lunch. I can't wait to wear the outfit on the trip.

All caught up on your latest wonderful Big Gives! Andrea's outfit for Angel is really cute and so are the shirts for mom and dad on your Animal Kingdom day! So many other fantastic items to make Angel's trip more special.

Glad that Tom's back is feeling better. Good for Angel telling her drawing teacher she wasn't doing any homework while on her trip.

Sorry to read about Cutie Pie! Will be praying for Angel's appointment on Thursday and all will be well for her wish trip! Praying for you too Christi as you get things ready for the trip.

Thank you so much for the prayers Gail

Ahrizel - Sorry, your packages didn't arrive today.


I found a few ants in the kitchen today. Hoping we can prevent it from becoming an invasion again. I took all of the cereal & other dry goods out of the cupboards that they were attracted to last time, and put them all in sterlite containers again. Tom's going to bring home the bait traps that the receptionist at the exterminator suggested last time (the ants stopped last time before we had a chance to try them). It was unbelievable how many ants managed to come in the first day the last time, and we were just gone to an appt. for Angel for a few hours - I don't want to think about what will happen if they're coming in while we're gone for 2 weeks.

I'm sorry they weren't there today. They were mailed Saturday late afternoon, so they should be there tomorrow. I hope I mailed priority, so you should have them. I'm rooting for Cutie Pie to do well. Good luck with your packing, that can be crazy.

We have crazy ant problems because I have two 3 year olds. We tried orkin and it was very expensive and didn't seem to be any more effective than anything else. We got some Bayer brand ant spray at Menards which we spray around the base of the house outside, and then the baseboards inside. It smells bad until it dries, usually 12 hours or so. Maybe you could spray before you leave so it has plenty of time to dry out? I don't know how it would impact Angel, but I would highly recommend it, it was less than $20 for a summer of ant free living.

I highly recommend Terro Ant Baits... It's gross at first , but it works better than ANYTHING I have ever used.... I try not to spray too much in the house but this stuff worked better than anything I ever tried...

Thank you Mary And there's no need for you to be sorry that the post office is behind in delivering. I've had a couple of other Big Givers that said the packages took longer to get here than they should have.

Thank you Emma

Thank you for the suggestion Jennifer. We can't spray inside, but even if we could, it won't work in our situation. Apparantly the ants are coming up the water or electrical pipes, and they enter through the outlet plate that is above the kitchen counter. When Tom went to talk to an exterminator, he was told that spraying the foundation outside would be useless too. It was very nice of them to tell us that their services wouldn't be effective, and to advise us the best way to try to eliminate them. We did know that it would most likely be a problem once it got warm again, because they told us that the scent trail they left before is strong enough for them to follow again (pretty amazing), but it hasn't been very warm here yet.

Thank you for the advise Nicole I'm not sure what the brand name is, but we got bait traps that contain borax, which they take back to the colony. We bought them last time, but it got cold & the ants stopped coming in before we used them, so we returned the traps. I would just feel better if we were going to be here to make sure it's working.

Thank you Jessica


Mary - I'm sorry, but the packages didn't arrive today. I'm pouting, cause your note has me to see what you sent.



Clinic called today to see if we can come next week instead of tomorrow because only one Dr. will be in tomorrow, and "they didn't want us to wait for hours." We're usually the first to arrive at clinic, so we wouldn't be waiting any longer than usual. I explained that her labs needed to be done before we leave, but she didn't say we could go as planned. I may be wrong, but I have a feeling that the Dr. tomorrow is Angel's former clinic primary, and he is just avoiding us. She said she could squeeze us in Fri. Fri. is usually way busier than Thurs., and there are usually chemo kids that arrive way earlier than us, so we would probably be waiting much longer (which is another reason I think it's probably the former primary tomorrow). Fri. isn't good for Angel to miss school, due to her class schedule, and taking a quiz that she'll miss next week. I asked if we could just have the labs done in the town where her PCP is, so they arranged it.

I'm sorry about the delayed delivery, even called the postal service today. They said their delivery period extends to tomorrow, so I'm crossing fingers and toes that it does Here's hoping. Whatever happens it will be okay. You must be incredibly excited by now and incredibly busy getting ready. I hope you have a good few days before you go-with no ants!!

Thank you Mary I'm sure it will arrive in time.

It's been a day full of interruptions, and I haven't been able to pack at all. I'm determined to finish it tonight (besides what has to wait until Friday night). Hopefully I'll have time after that to post the pictures I'm behind on, but since Angel has some time tonight I'm going to have her go ahead and make her posts even though the pictures haven't been posted.

The coordinator emailed me today, and said she fixed the transfers this morning, and I was able to verify that. I'm assuming that she forgot about it until this morning when she saw the email I sent Fri.

Angel checked the thread before she went to school, and thought it was funny that I only posted one set of BG pictures. I had done something really stupid (stayed up all night), and needed to sleep. I'm off to the PO now, but hope to get the last 3 BGs posted before she gets home.
I am, thanks! I did start our TR today, so come on over and visit after you get home!
happy Tom is getting excited! love your new haircut!

such cute new big gives! really love the AK sets Andrea did!!!

hope you get all the labs figured out and Angel's #'s are good!

Thank you to MaryPoppins1964 for the wonderful eye spy bag and EPCOT passport book that you made for me. I always loved to play with an eye spy tube at our dentist's office, so I'm very excited to now have an eye spy bag to play around with. My mom wouldn't let me look for any of the items (), so I'm eager to try to find them while we're at the airports. I love the passport book. The little Mickey and Minnie pictures are so cute and it's neat how the background of the pages show a picture of the country that's represented. It's going to be so much fun to use it.
