    DH has put his creative writing skills to work and will be introducing the Quackattack family.
    Here goes:
    [​IMG]

    It is my great pleasure to introduce to one and all, Le Grand Dame of the Lower Valleys, Matriarch of our Clan’s House, Master of Nutrition, Lady Belle Rochelle.
    She helps to manage the vast communications of her employer and directs many to aid the common people in need. When not overseeing the kitchens and bringing forth works of culinary art, she plans the excursions into the Hinterlands and to the coast. Our Genteel Lady’s quiet demeanor and wise counsel would belie her strength, determination, and lightening defense of her family. Traits that lead this sailor to hoist his sails, throw in with her Ladyship, and never look back!

    [​IMG]

    Now what can be said about Master Andrew? He works diligently to do his best and does not faint in the presence of adversity. Though storms come his way, he stands firm with a hearty laugh and does not waver from his intended course. Fearless in his endeavors to master all things electronic, he has defeated legions of foes from all across the known world. He is a champion of Independence and supports those who would remain so in the shadow of corporate giants. Though the fates may decree otherwise, he plans to use his creativity and humor to shape the future’s battlefields.
    May Master Andrew’s star shine bright through the ages!

    What kind of Magician might I be? For truly it be a powerful magic that holds Lady Rochelle close to one such as me. Surly this is what one would think, but somewhere her Ladyship received a thump on her noggin and determined a peasant such as myself was worthy of her attention.
    I was once a sailor and have had many adventures and quests in life. Currently, I am the gatekeeper for my employer spending long hours pouring over the runes and numbers of production. Nothing comes in or leaves without my approval. Though this latest endeavor gives me much satisfaction, I find myself yearning for the next adventure and work that I would love. Aarg! All the court agrees that my success is assured. At least, all that wish to keep their heads!

    Last week was EXTREMELY busy...we had something going every night. So, our weekly Disney activity was saved until Friday night, and it was kept very simple since we had somewhere to be that night as well. Lucky for me, it's the time of year when you can get something very special in your grocer's freezer...I took advantage of it:

    [​IMG]

    Those sugar cookies are so small, but SO good! We had never had them before. We all :love: them....pun intended. :thumbsup2

    Saturday I had traffic school...because I had a speeding ticket I didn't wish to show up on my insurance. :rolleyes1 When I got home, there was some magic in my mail box!!! pixiedust:

    I had ordered a few things from D~ a few months ago. I realized she would have to do these things during her "slow" times, since her custom bag order calendar is FULL. I told her it was no hurry, so I really had no clue when she would have a chance to do it, or when it would arrive. It really was a magical surprise to see the package in my mailbox! ::yes::

    I am having my MIL sew our Fish Extender for the cruise, but I needed something with our names on it to attach to the FE, that is what the Mickey Heads are for.

    [​IMG]

    I saw the towels she made for her dad for his new apt, and loved them. She is just so talented, and a wonderful friend to top it all off. THANKS D~!! :goodvibes

    Want some more Mickey magic? :confused3 Here is what I have on my desk at work this week:
