We're home...

from Disneyland. We had a great time. It was so relaxing, and fun to run from ride to ride. We really did run some of the time. We rode every ride, and saw every show that we wanted to. We slept the whole night without kids interrupting. I almost didn't know what to do with myself the first morning when we were eating breakfast. I ate, and just sat there while Jared finished. Kinda twittling my thumbs. Not sure what to do. Didn't need to help anyone or tell anyone to keep eating. It was so nice. and I got used to that way too quick. :) Can't wait to go somewhere else with no one but Jared. I am glad to be home, and be back to normal. Hope all is well with you. The kids all survived and so did our wonderful friends who took care of our tribe while we were away.

I have a special request of all of you...

A sweet friend of mine, who I do not know, is really sick and could use all the prayers, and thoughts we can give her.
This special friend of mine is named Ashley. She is two years old and is the sweetest baby girl. If you would like to meet her, check out her blog at She has had a rough life. Her parents are amazing to me at how they have handled this wonderful, but crazy challenge.
Thank You for your help. And Please, please send all you know, that maybe willing to help, over to Ashley's Story.

taking me away

They're coming to take me away, ha ha. They're coming to take me away ho ho. he he, ha ha to the funny farm.

Just kidding. a week from Monday Jared and I are taking a vacation. No kids, just us two. We are heading to Disneyland for a week to use our season passes one more time before they expire. I am so excited, so ready, a bit worried. So my question (s) to you is...

Do you do anything special for your kids when you leave them with someone? Is it easier to leave before they get up? Or better in the long run to say goodbye? do you call and check in or just wait for them to call you? Ideas, Advice. Do you remember your parents leaving you? Did you get anything special?
I know they will all be okay, and even have a great time. Our great friends that are watching them are very cool and very fun.
We appreciate you Tim and Des. Thank You!!
