So This Is Love

2 Feb

so this is love

My life has been rather busy lately, which is why this blog has been rather neglected. I will say, however, that I love my life right now and am very grateful for what my family has been blessed with.

As I mentioned in a previous post, our family has a lot to look forward to in 2014. The most exciting part of this year is welcoming our fourth child this June. And now my wife and I are thrilled to announce that we are having another GIRL!

We can’t wait to welcome another princess into our family! My wife’s due date is June 5, so look forward to more updates as we get closer. :-)

My wife and I are thrilled to announce that we are expecting our fourth child, due June 5, 2014. What an unexpected, but incredible blessing this is. We told our family over Thanksgiving, and after the initial shock everyone is very excited. :-D

Another magical addition for the upcoming new year is that I will be serving on the 2014 Disney Parks Moms Panel. After six years of applying, I am honored and overwhelmed to say that I have been invited to join the 2014 Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you all for the support and chEARs over the years! I still can’t believe it has happened. Uncle Walt was right….

I look forward to helping others plan their practically perfect Walt Disney World vacation.

Guess what kids, we’re going to Walt Disney World!

27 Apr

In just 11 days our family will be heading down to Florida for a magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. As many of you are aware, I have been invited to the 2013 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. For over a month my wife and I have kept this a secret from our kids. This weekend, we finally shared our big surprise with the kids. 

Before we shared the big news, my wife had the brilliant idea to make a countdown chain with our boys. She started cutting strips of paper and told Robert to decorate it with Disney drawings. Earlier in the day he had been pretending we were packing for a trip to Disney World, putting his Disney toys and stuffed animals in various backpacks and bags. Robert began drawing his favorite parts of Walt Disney World on the strips as William put his mark on them as well.

Once the coloring and decorating was finished, my wife assembled the chain and we hung it up in our living room. As you can see from the video, Robert figures out the announcement after about a minute and a half. Nonetheless, we had a lot of fun surprising them like this. It was our first time keeping an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World a secret, which made it all the more exciting for us. :-D
