The Disney Report, Part 1

So, we're back from Disney and although we had such a great time, let me tell you a secret. I'm still tired. The laundry still isn't caught up. I still haven't unpacked. That's actually three secrets but you don't mind, right?

We really did have the best time and I could write a book about our week there but I'll spare you. I'm also breaking my previously unspoken rule about not posting pics on the blog of the kids because I just can't not share the cuteness.

This picture is perfect. It embodies exactly how much Jillian loved this whole trip. She took everything in, little by little. She didn't want to miss a thing. I loved watching her totally fall in love with the magic that makes up Disney World.

This, on the other hand, is more how Keller approached the trip. He was happy to be there but he wasn't afraid to pout at the Happiest Place on Earth. I also loved watching him take it all in, even with the pouting.

J. found a new lady while we were there. I'm not really concerned. She's cute but she has sort of big ears.

I may get to share more pictures and stories when if I catch up on laundry. If you don't hear from me in a couple of days, you can safely assume that I'm buried under dirty socks and I'm in need of help.


  1. Looks like a blast! Good luck with the laundry.
    May there be a match for every sock! (Is that a prayer? It should be!)

  2. How fun!!! Looks like so much fun! My kids loved WDW when we went in December.


    My daughter lapped it up like a good gravy and my son was much like yours...he didn't care if Mickey saw him throw himself to the ground in a fit.

  4. How fun!! We are headed to Disney the last week in April - along with my husband's entire family. Should be a great memory maker!! I'm sure the laundry will get caught up...eventually. :)

  5. The smiles. The awe. The weather. The MAGIC! A permanent luster in the world of a child... (and adult, as I certainly see the spark in Big Daddy's eyes!).

    Remember that the laundry will never be caught up, even if you stay home every day. And the unpacked suitcases? Let them be reminders of the magic!

  6. Oh, Heather! That last comment was from me, SHARON! I am at Audrey's house on Audrey's laptop... with Jane's identity! (And being "old" and all, I don't want to mess with any of this for fear I will do permanent damage!). Hmmmm...

  7. I am so glad that you broke your no posting pictures of the family rule!! I love the two pictures of Sister and Brother with the castle! Your hair has grown so much. It hits a little to close to home knowing I have been gone that long. So glad that you all had a magical time

  8. Hi Heather

    Gosh, I haven't been by in what seems like forever! Between my crazy/busy life and our 15 day vacation, I've had very little time to blog read. But...we're home now and I've sure had fun this afternoon catching up with you. Your Disney trip looks like so much fun...great memories for the kids..and YOU. Loved seeing your new puppy...adorable. And your airport story reminded me of a number of times when our plans didn't jive and it was scary. So glad to read a happy ending.


  9. Looks like you all a great time. It truly is the happiest place on earth. I'm trying to talk hubby into a trip there this summer.

  10. Looks like you helped make a great memory! Dirty socks? I will meet you at the top of Mount Wash-More!

  11. I love that your children now have faces. ;)

    And I love that you guys had a great time. I would give anything to go back with the kids at their current age, they would absolutely love it. And so would their Mom.

  12. Oh that looks like SO much fun!!!! We're going in December. I can't WAIT.

  13. We've never been to WDW, I can't wait (we'll be going this summer)!

    Y'all are totally adorable. SO glad you shared pics!
