Nostalgia and a Good Dose of Reality

Well folks, so much to share and so little time to sit down and type it all out. I guess I will start first by telling you our disappointing news: we have come back home to Cranbrook. Yes. It was devastating really. We were really convinced that we would make a perfect fit within the Mouseland family. I secretly think that the deal breaker was my husband; he couldn't find his cute and cuddly factor quick enough. For a while I thought that since my children were oozing in their charms that we had it made, but alas, no job or housing offer came through upon check out day. So sadly, and lethargically, we slowly left the Magical Kingdom with a few tears and a steadfast determination to make the trip down there again soon in the future.

But, reality is screaming at me so I don't have the time to take a trip down memory lane at the moment. I will however leave you with a teaser and proudly show off our family photo with Minnie Mouse. Believe me folks when I say, upon seeing this picture, I thought that we had the makings of becoming part of the Mouseland family because never are we capable of taking a photo just once and all look half decent in it. I mean, everyone was looking at the camera and attempting to smile. It was a miracle folks!

That is a great picture. I also find it so hard to get a good picture of the whole family looking at the camera and not blinking or crying and somewhat smiling.

Looks like a great time. I miss the heat too.
