Dreams do come true...

Good afternoon everyone.  It is a dark and rainy one here in the south.  A good afternoon for a nap.  I hope all of you had a good weekend.  It was very nice here and the temps got into the high 60's.  Papa had a great day to work all day on the playhouse and that he did.  The roof is on!  I even got out there and helped.  I learned to use the saw and helped to frame out the windows.  I will take pics. and post them soon.  The weather is supposed to be nice the rest of the week and Papa has big plans to try and get it pretty much done.  We can't wait!

There hasn't been too much going on here.  Just the normal stuff.  Sometimes that's good right?  
I think so.  Although I like to be busy and keep something going on, sometimes its nice to not have anything much to do. 

Every summer, we try and take a family vacation.  Last year, we visited Panama City.  It was a first for Darbee and I and we LOVED it.  We had so much fun.  This year, we discussed several places and decided finally on one.  
Every child dreams of going here and we couldn't be more excited.

We are going to DISNEY!!!!  

We booked the trip yesterday for the end of August.  
We are all so excited.  

I went as a small child and still remember bits and pieces. I was a little smaller than Darbee is now.   I can't wait to make these memories with Darbee.  

Needless to say, I have been obsessing with Disney websites, Pinterest boards and Facebook pages trying to plan.  Now that it is booked, I still have so much more to read and do and plan.  
I am making a cute Disney binder to organize everything.  I must keep it all together.  :)

So...have any of you been to Disney World?  I would love to hear from you.  Any tips, places to visit, must do activities, etc.  Remember, this is our FIRST trip and I have no idea where to start!

Also, I don't ask for prayer requests often and this may seem silly, but tomorrow is registration day at Darbee's school.  All of you know how much I love her school.  There is only one kindergarten class there with 15 spots.  I already know that more than 15 have expressed interest and the spots are limited and are on a first come first served basis.  I have been assured by her teacher that I don't have anything much to worry about, but I am such a worrier and will be crushed if she doesn't get in.  I know if she doesn't, God will have other plans but I so want her there.  
So...if you don't mind, will you send up an extra prayer that she gets in?  Thanks so much in advance.  
I will let you all know tomorrow!

That's about all of the news from me today.

I hope you all have a good afternoon!

Until next time.....


  1. Oh my, how fun! I took my girls to Disney at about that age and then again when they were teens. Both times were such great memories! I don't have any hints other than to just enjoy it and take lots of pics! Twenty five some years later, I still look back at those pictures and remember. Prayers for God's will in Darbee's school.

  2. I have been to Disney about 4 times but no help as I was still little.We lived in Orlando.I can say that the memory will last forever for Darbee, it is a magic up a little prayer for the kindergarten registration.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  3. Our daughter is planning a Disney trip too this year. Ya'll will have a ball. And any prayer request is not silly...I am honored to pray for that.

  4. Hi Holly,
    I'm not much help on your Disney trip. Went there when I was 16 and that was a very long time ago. I'm sure it has changed a lot since then, but I do know that you will have a great time and make memories that will last a lifetime! Sending up a prayer for Darbee going to kindergarten.

  5. went years ago when in high school, she will love it, hope you all do, hope she gets her spot in K. look out Mickey, here she comes!

  6. I've never been to Disneyland. Sounds exciting!
    What memories you and Darbee will make.
    Sending Prayers your way! I know she will get in.
