We interrupt this regularly scheduled Disney Trip recap to share with you my newest projects for Genuinely Jane Designs.
The ice cream shape is super cute and fun to work with. I used fleece on the cover to represent the ice cream. Then i used embroidery floss to sew on the sprinkles and then did the blanket stitch on the edge to finish it off.

A mini book I made for my little guy who just adores anything in motion. This book has been read a million and one times already...i think I will need to make him some more like this. I love them because they are made of wood so that makes them perfect for kids to handle. Plus a lot of sturdy glue. I brought back the old school shaker box technique for the windows of the bus. Again, he loves things that move so this is perfect for him. :)

OK for those of you reading this that are not die hard Disney fanatics like me....here is my vacation in a few pictures...for the die hards I will go into detail later. :) Above is Gracie giving Mickey mailbox a smooch...just cute and shows that she loves this place as much as I do.
Gracie and I enjoying our day at Animal Kingdom. I am really proud of my sister that took this photo with the new DSLR camera and she has no clue how to use it. Good job Auntie Kay!!!
"Well Mickey...I was wondering if we could schedule a play-date sometime next week......." At least that's what I am thinking they are having a conversation about. He loves those characters. i am so glad he did not turn away and want to leave. And yes for those that need to know...he did get to "Hug Tuto (Pluto) on da head" Kid cracks me up!!!!
This is my Q showing his true colors. Little bugger did not want to be held or int he stroller....he wanted to touch everything. This made waiting in any lines very interesting...and entertaining for other guests I am sure. Although when we finally got up to the ride he loved it to pieces so I think it was worth the few minutes of crabby Q.
"Hey, Get Up, Get Loud Pumpin' Up The Party Now!" That was one of my favorite memories of the whole trip. There's nothing like a good impromptu dance party in the middle of the street at the magic kingdom. Disney knows how to give us a good time. :)
I'm Home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am finally able to sit down at the computer after being home from vacation for an entire week now. I know you are all wondering how it was. It was eventful. I started out the vacation still at the end of being sick and then the last few days we all got hit with the flu....or the 'black plague' as I like to call it. It was awful. But, that being said it was still awesome! We have been doing this for 6 years straight and we have never gotten sick like this on vacation so I guess it is fine to have one year like this. We did a lot of really awesome things that we had never done before and most of all we got to see my little sister in action as a cast member. I even took paparazzi style photos of her at work. Way to go big sis. I know....I rock. Well then we got home and everyone was still not doing well. It was as if this awful flu came back again. Now come on....thats not fair??? Whats up with that?? Oh well, thats life I guess.
So soon I will be flooding you with Disney pictures galore. I think in total between all the camera we had we took about 500 pictures...I know WOW! So take this time while I am only writting to prepare yourself for a Disney picture overlaod. It wouls probably be more fun if you got yourself a snack and a soda. :) I know I am super funny today.

I think I am ready.......

I leave for sunny Florida tomorrow at 2pm! I sure hope that I am ready to go. I have been sick for the past 2 weeks so I brought in some assistance to help me get everything ready. My Mom and my Sister helped get the kids all packed. My sister helped me pack. My Dad has been helping drive Gracie to school each morning so that I can get a little extra sleep. I threw the idea of making the kids autograph books out the window. For once I think they can get pre-made books. Actually, last night I spoke with my little sister(who is currently a cast member down at Disney) and we came up with a plan to have the autograph books delivered from Disney Floral all wrapped up with mouse ears in cellophane with a big bow! I think that will be nice surprise for them to have if I cant make them a special one.I know I would have loved that when I was thier age! The last thing I have to do is get the kids 'to-do' bags packed. Oh, and I would love to be able to paint my nails and toe nails. But, if all else fails I can always do that while the kids are playing in the wadding pool. I know I still need some time to rest here before I go so I should probabvly get a little nap in while Q is down. Hopefully I wont be writting you in 10 days after I return to tell you....ummm I forgot this and that blah blah blah! I guess that still waits to be seen :)
