It's a long one. . .

but it should be after almost 2 weeks, right?

We had a great time at Disney. It was not a planned vacation really. Just decided to go a couple of weeks earlier. I HAD to get away and spend some time with the boys one on one. From a business perspective I had no business doing this right now. From the "mom" perspective, I couldn't not. They have been so neglected - by both of us really. So, I spent 6 days taking Dramine and walking until my feet and legs ached (with a half million other people always on your trail)! It was crowded, but it was honestly manageable. I bought these shirts at Target for them the day we left in preparation for the Magic Kingdom:

We headed right for Pirates of the Caribbean when we got there to see Jack Sparrow. I can't believe how realistic it was -so amazing. The boys rode everything they were able to ride. Christian got on Space Mountain (barely made it in) and put his hands up right away - I couldn't believe it. Here we are afterwards:


This was his expression the entire trip -every picture.

After this, they were ready to tackle Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom (our favorite Disney park)! They just opened this last year and it is very, very cool. An amazing end- but I will leave that surprise to those who will be going soon! Christian rode it 4 times, Noah 6. He even stood in line and rode by himself one of those times. He is officially hooked on Roller Coasters. He did his first "upside down" one at MGM Studios with the Rock and Roller Coaster. And he rode Tower of Terror twice. Unbelievable for the kid who yelled "go bye bye" everyday we entered the parks on his first trip 5 years ago!

For those who stuck it through my boring vacation play-by-play, here is a little preview. A little birdie told me JBS is introducing felt shapes and these are the 3 you will be getting in the March Kit! Ready for stiching and sequins (or whatever else the creative mind will come up with for embellishment)!

(for my stores reading this, you be getting the information on the felt, rub-ons and scalloped notecards in the next week to 10 days. If you still have not signed up for wholesale information please do so using the "retailer" link at the website. We will be launching the wholesale site in about a week)!
Pin It!

This was so worth the wait! I am glad that you got to spend time with your boys. Sometimes you just have to say "STOP!", and let everything else take a backseat to what is really important. And...if you haven't noticed, everyone is still here waiting for you! I am really excited to see the rest of the kit, now that you have posted those adorable little birdies.

Have a great day! (And welcome back!)
