The worst 6 letter word...

Dave was diagnosed with testicular cancer yesterday. I feel like a bomb was dropped on us. It came out of no where and now we are left here having to pick up the pieces. We have doctors appointments and things going in the next several days which will be followed most likely by surgery and chemo.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this trying time.

We are back from what was an extreamly magical vacation! While the 10 day trip was long, expensive and exhausting, it was worth it! Little Miss surprised me by riding the Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, and just about everything we threw at her. Bobo was a trooper having a great attitude depsite the craziness, heat and all that was going on! One bad thing.... my poor beloved $250 Maui Jims were abliterated :( They fell off during Test Track at Epcot when I was reaching in to help Little Miss out of the ride, the attendant moved the car to reach them and CRUNCH. :( So sad!

Disney offered a promotion for free dining during September, we took advantage of that and boy was it amazing! We got to go to so many character meals that we normally wouldn't have been able to afford. It also made it so easy to just eat in the park and not have to worry about money. I don't think a single meal was under $45, (and Bobo just shared) our most expensive was Cinderella's Royal Table, inside the castle. That was great :) Cinderella, Bell, Snow White, Jasmine and Sleeping Beauty were all there. Little Miss just loved it.... and Bobo was quite smitten :)

Here are some of the pictures from our great trip!

New Week

Although it has only been a week since my last post, I feel like I am neglecting my blog!

Three days until Disney!! I can hardly wait, I can't imagine Little Miss's anticipation...oh wait, yes I can... EVERYTHING is about Disney! There is a billboard announcing a new addition to a local hospital that has fireworks, she automatically associates that with the fireworks we will see around Cinderella's castle. Everything is Disney related!

We were at the mall this weekend and hit up the Disney store, her excitement there was so high I can't imagine what it will be like when we are actually there :) I can't wait!!

I am keeping busy preparing for our trip, but I also have my final interview for the fostering homestudy tomorrow. I am a bit nervous, mostly because I don't know what to expect. Wish me luck!

I have also been busy taking pictures, pretty much of anyone or anything I can get my hands on! I want to get better and am doing whatever I can think of... and I am having alot of fun doing it.
