This Week's Scripture


"Nor shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be doomed to destruction like it." Deuteronomy 7:26

This Week's Prayer!


We invite Your Holy Spirit to dwell in these rooms, which belongs to Henry, Anthony, Zoƫ, Asa, Rose, Grace, and Elijah, and in Heidi, Angel, and Angela's room. You are Lord over heaven and earth, and we proclaim that You are Lord over their rooms as well. Flood it with Your light and life. We pray that You, Lord, will make their rooms a holy place, sanctified for Your glory. And may You also dwell in our room and in each one of our extended family and friend's rooms.

Happy 40th Birthday, Tommy!


Happy Happy Birthday, My Love, My Man, My SoulMate!! HA!!


Tommy got a birthday greeting from Mickey Mouse!



A little pda love!!


Eating at one of our favorites: Coral Reef (spectacular food!)


Coral Reef helping us celebrate Tommy's Birthday!



I was able to stop and smell the roses!


Tommy and I going to "What's Your Problem" comedy play.


..... And becoming part of the comedy. We were in competition with two young girls and we had to see how fast we could pack and stick to our teammate. It was a tie for us and a blast!


a little Tom Petty tribute!

"there ain't know easy way out..... yeah, baby!" "and I want back down...."



On Sunday, Tommy joined me in being 40!! Yay!! It felt so good to have him catch up and share this birthday with him!!!!! We celebrated, just the two of us, in Disney. Can I say we love Disney! Really!! It is one place that I just get lost in the cartoon characters, atmosphere, food, and people!! Love it! We both wore Happy Birthday Disney buttons but I did take mine off on Sunday so the day could be Tommy-focused! The Disney staff are the most courteous and so friendly and we always have the best food! And how can we do all this with so many children? Well, family is the best!! Tommy's Mom and Dad got up 4:00a early and came over until my Mom came over. Mom Trixie and Pop took Henry and Anthony and my Mom was with all the rest!! Many many thanks Moms and Pop for letting us run off together to Disney! Wonderful wonderful trip!!
Great memories: Toy Story (I am a Cosmic Commando at 741,000), Splash Mountain, Lava Cake, up at 5a and not seeing the room again for 13-14 hours later, watching all the people, Everest 4 times, Rockin Roller Coaster, Steamboat ride, One Man's Dream (my favorite story), Beauty and the Beast, the Muppets 3D, Mickey's Phil Harmonic 3D, It's a Small World (favorite too), Hall of Presidents (ok, slipped into sleep couple times), Carousel of Progress (appreciating it more each time but still doze off), Street comedy, the roses, the cola's around the world tasting, Soarin!!, (the land/hydroponics tour closed. I love that one!), lots lots more, and of course spending day and night with just Tommy and no interuptions!! Thanks, Tommy, for a great trip! I am so in love with you!
