Up next, do we get a REAL ME bus and we give Mark surprise #2.
You all look so happy and excited!

We loved the videos...Todd said "I thought Kathy had the potty mouth" LOL! Yeah, like Mark is innocent ha ha

Great pictures of your pre-Hildebrant arrival....cannot wait to see the ones of the aftermath

Your tummy trouble and my back trouble had everyone worried....we are just getting too old! And miraculously they both went away as quickly as they appeared!

Hey Kathy,

Mark is so cute... like a little kid...

I don't think I could forget my car with that crazy Uncle Sam poster right by it... but who knows when its that early...

YOU KNOW I'm totally with you on MUST HAVE MY STARBUCKS...

(do you fly out of Chicago? How long is that flight?)

I love the photos in the Orlando Airport... Isn't it like a tease... pre Disney excitement... but you know you're almost there...?
