Downton Abbey

My favorite television show, and yes I have both season 1 and 2 on DVD. It's about a family in Edwardian England. Great stories, wonderful clothes. This show takes me to another time and place, and givEs me some relaxing time.

Fairy Tales Do Come True!

Alexa, Kristin, Chelsee, Amber & Kaiya on our Great Disney Adventure!

Chelsee, Me, Kristin & Amber.....Finally...Disney Realized!!!

For as long as I can remember my two youngest daughters have asked me, "why did you take Amber to Disney and not us?" When Amber was not quite 3 years old we went to California for almost a month, and visited Disneyland a couple of times. It didn't matter to Kristin & Chelsee that they weren't even born yet, they just knew they did not get a Disney trip. Well, I'm so happy and glad to say that a dream of mine and theirs became a reality. We headed to Orlando in January. We were a weary bunch of travelers by the time we arrived in Orlando late Thursday night. Amber, Alexa & Kaiya, Kristin, Chelsee, and myself. We were all ready to go early Friday morning for our much anticipated trip to DisneyWorld. Amazing would be the word I would use to describe our trip, and I would go back in a second. We had such a wonderful time. The trip the Disney was beyond expectations.

On our second day we did a half day trip to Epcot, and Sunday was a trip to Sea World. More adventures to come!

Magic Kingdom

Seeing the Magic Kingdom Castle lit up at night was breathtaking. The castle actually changed colors. It was so beautiful against the early evening sky.

Simply Magical

The Princess's and Prince's all showed up to dance!
Kaiya was amazed and loved the show that featured Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Captain Hook & cohorts, Peter Pan, Cinderella & Prince, Sleeping Beauty & Prince, and Snow White & Prince. Beautiful costumes.

Captain Hook tried to get Donald over to the "dark side"

Mickey & Minne were all about friendship & love

Snow White & Prince Charming make a lovely couple

Minnie convinced Donald that there is hope in the world, and he should be happy.

Donald Duck was in a grumpy mood until Minnie talked to him!

Let good win

Sometimes a day
can hold a lot of challenges.

Someone recently said to me that they felt like whenever something good happened to them, it seemed something bad also happened and it cancels out the good.

I know exactly how they feel. But I am going to try and put a turn around on this thought for a moment.
I think the GOOD cancels out the bad...let the positive Win. Here's my mathematical proof, it's pretty simplistic thinking.
Good. 4 letters
Bad. 3 letters
Good has one more letter than good, giving it more value...GOOD Wins?.i value the GOOd more than the bad.
So my goal is to try and remind myself of the good things that are happening in my day, and not let the bad win...
