Our Disney vacation!

We had a wonderful and magical vacation at Disney World. It was such a busy and exciting time for all of us, although certain teenagers liked to pretend they are above posing with characters.
The castle was really pretty at night they shine beautiful light onto it and it glows so nicely in the background.

Here is a great closeup of a giant grouper fish we saw at the Coral Reef restaurant. It came right up to the window with it's mate and staired at all of us as if we were the ones in the fish tank!

This was our cheff at the Japanese restaurant in Japan at the Epcott Center! She was very sweet and a lot of fun. This was my favorite meal at Disney.

Chip and Dale are Garretts favorite characters in all of Disney World. We were very glad he got to have pictures takens with them. Garrett got a little autograph book for all the characters to sign. It's a great way for the little ones to learn not to be afraid and to intereract with all the fun Disney Cartoon Characters.

How did we wake up our teens? Well this was Garretts idea to put stickers all over their heads. But Moms idea was to put them over their eyes and take pictures!!! hehehehe

We weren't apossed to feed the duck but Garrett got one French Fry and it was so funny we had to take pictures!

Here's the Seth miester,(enjoying a trip) on the monorail!

JOJO was the best character there I think. She was the first one to win the hearts of my two kids. She chased Garrett under the table and all around the restaurant until he wasn't afraid anymore, it was so much fun! Even Danny was having a great time with her!

Here's Danny in front of Mickey's giant Hat!

All three of my sons with Piglet!

This was the view from ourt hotel room! They gave us an upgrade for free and at night every night at 10pm we got to enjoy a water parade!

Here's my gang in Tomorrow land.

Oh Pooh!

Yes I coached Danny into hugging Goliath, osn't my Danny a cutie pie?

Her I am with Garrett and June from little Einstiens!

So much to tell and so many wonderful memories!

I finally did some artwork!

I only needed to make one of these 4x4 wrapped canvases for this swap I am in but I wanted to make one extra for the host and the other two are for other reasons.
One will be for a blog giveaway. Haven't decided for sure what I will do with the other, but I am in love with the psalm one so I'll either keep it for myself or give it to someone very special!

If you look closely you will see all the love that went into each one of these special valentines. They are multilayered and mulitmedia. Tissue papers, modelling paste, lumineers, acrylic, distress crackle ,inks and paints.
Special sayings, fibers, laces, real dried flowers,charms, and sequence. What else could a Valentine want?

I call this one Love is a Rose. It's for a 4x4 Valentine collage swap for Danielle Muller"s group! Loads of talented peeps there.

I had oral surgery yesterday aren't I pretty?

I had an epecotomy. Two of my back molars had failed root canals. So they had to cut through my gum and jaw bone , then sawed off the end tips of the two abscessed roots. Then sewed me all back up to save my teeth. It sure hurt when I got home and the local anesthesia wore off! I am doing better today but I am all swollen and bruised. Coarse nothing ever stops the Sanna girlio from eating!
