Thank you! It took a lot of stalking and it finally paid off (I also got the crown but the amulet we just happened upon at Target the day before the dress arrived.) I did see that about the BBB. Now to find out if they are going to have it in DL too because I will book it for sure!!

Judy - so happy to hear you get a much needed vacation!! That is exciting news!! Life has been crazy here but some real unexpected blessings have come my way too. Not quite as exciting as Florida, but my son got a PAID internship, my daughter got her braces off, and we have Chinese exchange students coming! I am always amazed at the blessings God has for us.

Your trip will be awesome! Check out groupon for things to do in Orlando

If I can ever get back to Florida you can bet I'll be spending some time volunteering too!! Hope your able to work it out so you can be there to volunteer.

Yeah not looking forward to the potty training but he is 2 1/2 and asking to use the potty. Of course he's always asking when we aren't at home and the other 2 are saying they have to go!! I'm only waiting until we get home because I just don't want to be dealing with it when we'll be sharing 2 bathrooms with over 20 people!!



Glad you guys are safe and have power!!

Prayers for everyone who needs them. Especially the one who really needs it.


For anyone that remembers the crying fit I had to deal with in January/February with Sarah when it came time to be dropped off for school and her reward for no more crying was a Sofia the First dress. Well I was finally able to fulfill that promise!! I would literally check Disney shopping daily to see if they had her size or the dress. I was stalking our local stores (calling weekly!!) and finally about a week ago I was able to order it online!!! It came in today and she loves it!!! Here she is:



Sandra, Frist, your little Sophia the First is so pretty! I well remember the problems back in January (that seems years ago) and I would say this was a vary wise parenting move, Sarah looks adorable!

I hope potty training goes quickly, I found my middle two easy (Lisa was harder because of her strokes, she "got it" but physically it was more difficult).

And you don't have a jealous bone in your body, you would just like to go to Florida as well...I wish you could!

Dear Chiara, I am so delighted you found us, I have missed you! I need to get over and see how you are dong and find out baby news! I am trying to count in my head, you should be due!! I am like an ostrich, I don't get my head out of the sand much. I am totally thrilled to be going back to Florida. I see I am going to miss you by just a few weeks on either side of two trips for you (BOO, I always miss meeting you)...how exciting for you! THANK YOU for letting me know you are here!!!

Thank you Jennie

I think it is a much deserved and needed retreat that I wish the military would realize would benefit ALL service couples, especially those about to be deployed. I would love to see the pics, I miss the beach, we haven't been in quite a few years...and I used to go practically every weekend! It is my dream to retire and live near the ocean again.

He was transferred to South Carolina on Friday from Florida, I was able to see him today and he is so confused but knew who I am, its like he is living in 3 different worlds when he talks, blending in parts of his life from here, Florida and when he lived in Charlotte NC, shoot I felt confused when I left because of trying to follow his conversation but he is HOME to SC finally and for that I am so grateful!
I remember the worry and concern over this Deborah and must say I am so happy you have him close to you. You are such a support to your family!

Thank you for being here! I will do a search for Orlando groupons, great idea! I LOVE all of the positives in your life and each one deserves celebrating! I would love all of them (although I am not sure I could devote enough time to the exchange student- but I would love the opportunity)! God is amazing!

Movie Night~Lisa's Choice




We have decided there will be a movie night each week to count down to our trip. We have never done this “officially” with getting the food involved; however, thought it would be fun. The family was on board, so I suggested each person be in charge of one of the weeks, with Lisa and I working as a team on her week (I am the advisor/assistant for everyone, giving as much or as little assistance as they choose). It can be elaborate or low-key. This brilliant idea hit me Friday night, we truly haven't been able to contain our excitement and this is a great way to channel it.

Lisa came to me yesterday and said let’s do our first movie night for dinner. I liked that idea, except I had to take Rachel to School of Rock for show practice. Pete, Christian and David said they would help if I did the planning, organizing and told them how to prepare it all...simple enough! We came home to a lot of hustle in the kitchen and things were on track! Lisa had planned to make invitations and write a menu; however, with time so short (It took them the entire three hours to get things going, lol) she was okay with letting the food stand on its own. I know lots of people go all out for these nights; however, I have told everyone to make it there own...I am excited to see what they come up with!

Lisa decided for her movie to be The Jungle Book, she has been studying that in theater class and they presented a great show this past Friday! She was a vulture and was VERY cute and graceful...LOVED IT!


Baloo’s Ants on a Log


Vulture’s Vegetable’s


Bears Berries


Jungle Juice


Mowgli’s Meat
This was the first item Lisa decided on. When I asked Lisa what we should serve, the first thing out of her mouth was MEAT! For those of you who have read our story before, meat is a luxury at our house and Lisa LOVES meat! She even got Turkey legs for Christmas from Santa and was SO happy!


Bagherra’s Brown Rice


Our cute “jungle face” plates


Monkey Bread for dessert
I forgot to photograph it before we cut it (I put half away for breakfast, it was so large). I found a recipe to cut the calories in half and it was DELICIOUS!


My little “vulture” wearing the hat she made Friday at Theater.


So proud and happy!


Our first movie night was a HUGE success (although I fell asleep the last 15 minutes...so typical of me if I sit down)! I am looking forward to what the family comes up with. Rachel is up next, although I am planning a little surprise for July 4th...

We do countdown dinners too. There is a thread on the DIS that is dedicated to themed dinners. There are some great ideas. So much fun. I will see if I can find the link.

Fun idea for dinner! I was hoping we would do some countdown stuff around here - we're staying with our son right now, but they have been working on getting approved for a foster to adopt program, so it has taken all of their time and energy, and mom doesn't cooperate with grandma's (mine) ideas too well. She did make a countdown calendar, and then no one was using it. The kids are still excited, though!

What a great movie night! Lisa did a fantastic job planning. You'd never know elements were missing due to time constraints. Love the plates, the menu, the visor, etc. Looking forward to seeing each week's movie night.

LOVE family movie nights as part of a countdown!! Great job with Jungle Book Lisa! Can't wait to see what Rachel has planned! When my kids were all younger we did a Friday night movie night every single Friday night complete with a family sleepover in the living room. My youngest loved The Incredibles and when it came out on DVD, we watched that darned thing every Friday night for a MONTH!!! So much fun and so many great memories!

Thank you I definitely think I will need all the luck and prayers I can get. We started two thursdays ago and it is hard and frustrating but it will be worth it when she gets it.

Your little girl is adorable by the way and love the Sofia dress.

Praying.

Your movie night looked like so much fun. Hope the next goes well as well.

I have a prayer request for everyone. I do not remember if I asked for prayer or not for my close friends mom who I have known forever in may when she was in the hospital for a drug reaction where she was in ICU. I am asking for prayers for her mom and the family again. She is back in the hospital as of last night again. Please please pray for them.
