Disney Stuff

We were so blessed to spend 7 days in Disney World last week. It was so COLD! I could not believe that we were putting on two and three layers each morning! What happened to that 70 degree weather I was so looking forward to?!?!?!?!

Regardless of the weather, we enjoyed a much needed vacation that each one of us sacrificed to take. It was a trip that we had been planning for right at a year. I think that was why it was such a sweet time. The girls have a huge water jug that they have been tossing spare change in. When we counted it the week before we left, they had saved almost $150 in spending money. They were so excited. Much to my surprise, they watched every penny and searched for just the right thing to bring home. Both came home with fun stuff as well as a pretty pricey keepsake.

How about some pictures?

We were surprised at check-in to find out we were the family of the day in our resort. Flowers, balloons and all sorts of extra goodies were waiting on us. So cool. At the point of this picture, my roses were looking pretty sad. :)

The rest of these are just random shots from the week.

On the KimPossible scavenger hunt in the World Showcase at Epcot. SO FUN!

What a trip. God is so good. We came away with precious memories and experiences that are forever sealed in our hearts. I have one in particular that I may share later. Who knew that I would cry in the Tiki room. One of the most tender things I have ever seen.

Time to get back to work. As I said on Facebook yesterday, no one is calling me princess and telling me to have a "magical day"! I guess if this house is going to get cleaned, I'm going to have to do it!!! Getting that done early this week is a priority because I'm leading a Disciple Now group this weekend with some pretty incredible sixth grade girls. Can not wait to see what God does in these hearts. This study is AWESOME. I so wish I had "gotten" the concept we're teaching when I was there age. I'm asking God to open those hearts and minds and do a mighty work.

Oh and have a "magical day"!!!

I am so glad that you had such a wonderful trip. The pictures are absolutely precious.

Maybe you won't have too much trouble adjusting to the real world again!

What fun!! The last time I was at Disney I was 12 years old. I have such great memories of it. Loved "It's A Small World". Do they still have that?

So happy y'all had a great time and that you all were family of the day!! The favor of God! :) Your girls are so cute and precious and I know they had fun spending their money. That makes me smile.

Okay, Princess Stephanie, you have a magical day too!

Love you!

Yay!! Isn't it just the BEST?! I was wondering if you did the KimPossible thing...looks like it went over pretty well!


Cheryl said...

So glad y'all had a great trip! What a neat blessing to be the family of the day, whoever says God doesn't care about the little things is sooooo wrong!

Have a magical day!!!
