Spring Break Surprise

If you happen to be a long time follower or friend of mine,

We have been a number of times,

(Last time just my husband and I went without kids and it was FAB!),

And each time I love it more and more.

This time is extra special, though.

You see, our newest 2 additions have never been, so this will be their first time!!

So we couldn't just say, "hey, we're going to Disney World for spring break.".

Oh no!

We have to do it right.

So we told our kids we're going to Florida to the beach (which isn't exactly a lie since we will be 
spending one day at the beach!).  

We have rented a house and on the first evening there, we're going to play charades.

(You totally get where I'm going with this, right?)

I'll volunteer to go first and act out: "WE'RE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!"

Best game of charades ever!

I also have little gifts bags to give each of them.

The bags have a small Disney stuffed animal, a gift card for spending, a Disney shirt, and autograph
books.  I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!!

We'll spend one day in each park and one day at Cocoa Beach, too.  And the house we rented has an
inground pool, so that should keep the kids busy on our off days, too.

Have you been to Disney World and 
how did you tell your kids?

Our UPDATED Family

You could say I've taken a hiatus from blogging.

And you'd be right.

Life has been a weeeeee bit busy around here.

You see, we've added TWO kids to our family!!!!!

A few years ago, we decided that God was calling us to become foster care parents, and little did we know that He had a BIGGER plan!

(Doesn't He Always?!)

Anyhow, after spending over a year taking classes to get licensed, our first placement was a sibling group.  A boy and a girl who needed a forever home.

And we couldn't say no.

Because we love them.

And because we couldn't imagine sending them away.

So, here we are now.  A family of 6.

And who knows where God will take this journey.

We're just along for the ride :)
