I've hit some rough waters in the ocean of life these days. I have learned so much about myself. Here are some of the things that I have learned...

1) I am an incredibly strong woman.
2) Even if I am not hungry its still a good idea to eat.
3) My friends are fabulous!...even more then I ever thought
4) My family is amazing!....even more then I ever thought
5) My son is such a cuddly guy.....he has just started this week. Maybe he knows I need it right now.
6) My faith is stronger then ever
7) A messy mini van does not make you a bad mommy....Gracie told me so :)
8) Not everyone in your life can handle big issues and thats ok! It does not make them a bad person, they just handle things differently then I do.
9) Loosing my scrapbook mojo for a little while is will come back.
10)Singing upbeat music makes me feel better even if just for a moment!

My Gracie doing the was funny. For some reason the dishwasher has not been drying the dishes. I explained to Gracie that you can not just put them away wet, we have to dry them. So I got her a towel and asked her to help dry them. She proceeds to hum a little toon and dry the dishes. I walked out for a little while and comae back to her stacking the dishes all over the kitchen counters. I asked what are you doing with the piles of dishes and she replied " They are a pretty way" So some she dried with the towel and some she just sat out to dry (I think you can see them pretty good in the picture sitting out all over the place) Oh how I love this little lady. So sweet and such a creative thinker!
Then after Q saw that mommy was taking a picture of "Sis-Er" I comes over, only in a diaper with a grahm cracker in hand saying "Pic-Er Mommy?" He wanted me to take a picture of him. I took a few before I go this one. I came down to his level first and got him directly looking into the camera...then he said "No, no, Mommy" So I thought maybe he didnt want his picture taken. Then I eventually took this one form above and he drops his grahm cracker and clapps saying " Yeah Mommy" Apently he wanted the picture taken from above. He was so excited to see it on the screen of the camera. He kissed himself on the screen saying "Oh, Nice Baby"

Two cute moments from 2 cute kids, one right after another. Sometimes I wonder how could I have been so lucky?

So soon I will be 28......for some weird reason I am not so thrilled that I will be closing in on 30. So I have decided from now on I am 28. So next year when I turn 29 I will still be 28 and so on and so forth. Eventually my little sisters will become my big sisters, and then my children will be older then me.

Wish Me Luck!!!!

I just applied to be on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel. If I am chosen to be a part of this panel I will be asked questions of guests traveling to WDW and I will answer them via the internet! Don't you think that would just about be the coolest thing ever??? I sure do. I already love helping my friends and family plan their trips to my home away from home, so what would be better then helping the entire nation! I find out if I made it to the next round in the application process by the end of this month....I believe. Well, anyway it was cool just to apply knwing that someone at the Walt Disney Company is going to actually read about my love for the place! No matter what hjappens in the process I will still visit my special place time and time again. In fact we just booked our trip for January 2009 not to long ago and I just recieved my first mailing from Walt Disney World Travel Company a few days ago! Granted it was a bill to tell me how much I owe.....but still it was exciting!

Yesterday we took the kids to Stone Fire Pizza for a last hoorah before school starts! Thet really had a good time.

Q sure loves to watch Wall-E on the computer. He watches the 2 min trailer but has never seen the movie. I don't think he would sit thorough it. He has to move to much and talk about everything thats going on.

Today was the first day back to school for my little Graciepoo. Her little brother was so sad to see her go. She was so excited to have a locker and a desk. She couldnt fall asleep last night because she was so thrilled for school to start.

Q did some reading while his sister was away. This is usually something they do together. He kept asking Sis-er? Sis-er? He won't take a nap today eaither. He is here on my lap as I type this. I am thinking maybe he feels liek if he goes to sleep he might miss his sister coming home. As soon as I put him down for a nap he yelled for her. Poor little man. I hope that she i having a good day. We can't wait to go pick her up in a few minutes.!
Thank you to all of you whom have continued to support me though my health issues! You all rock. I hope you enjoy these pictures of my two most precious blessings in life. They are what keeps my spirits high. As well as all the wonderful firneds and family I have in my life. I feel so blessed to have all of you. I hope to get some more scrapping done soon.
