Debby the Tropical Storm arrived Sunday during lunch and did not leave until today. She stayed way too long! The rain came and came and to be honest at times I felt like Noah...ok it wasn't that bad but it was a lot of rain!! Here are a few pictures of some of the rain around our house and my parent's house. There were so many homes damaged and I am thanking the Lord it was not worse.
Tonight the girls came home from their 17 day trip to Louisiana. They had a WONDERFUL time. When they arrived home we were smack dab in the middle of "Debby" the tropical storm. It was horrible. Our area had flooding like we have not had in probably over a 100 years. So many people had damage to their homes. Thankfully the girls made it home safely and we were able to weather the rest of the storm home together.
I can't thank my sister and her family enough for all their hospitality to my two little ladies!! We love you guys!
Typically I let the girls choose what they would like to be for Halloween. This year Michaela wanted to be a bride. I did not realize the impact it would have on me. I vowed we would not repeat this one...too real for my liking!! I don't want to see either of them in a bridal gown for years!
Flashback Friday ~ First Disney Trip with the Little Ladies ~ A trip we will never forget!!
Our trip started with a stop at one of our most favorite restaurants...Chevy's!!! It was quite the eventful dinner with Michaela throwing up right after our special dinner arrived...not the way we planned for our little vacation to start. I love Sophia's face in this picture!
The next morning we all woke up feeling much better and headed to Downtown Disney...one of our most favorites stops.
We ate at Rainforest Cafe
Daddy and Michaela rode the little train. She loved it!
Then we took a picture with Michaela's favorite princess...Cinderella. She had the hugest smile on her little face. Meanwhile, Sophia is checking out the crowd :)
The next day we headed to Magic Kingdom. I was nervous at how we would do since Michaela threw up again in the parking lot but we ended up having a very magical day!!
Sophia did not love waiting in line but she did like to be on her Daddy's shoulders. Then she could people watch.
Michaela was quite the little ham.
I think she spotted a princess!!!
Sophia loves Disney popcorn...go figure.
Their first 3-D show
And finally...a little nap!!!!
Minnie's House which the girls LOVED!
We ended the night with Mickey Mouse
The rest of the vacation was filled with lots of POOL TIME
Although, it was a rough start it was a wonderful time together as a family. I am so thankful for the opportunity to spend this time together as a family on our very first foursome vacation. I'll never forget it!
