This weekend my brother and sister in law came to visit. It had been far to many years since we had seen them. Plus it was our first time meeting our niece. So since they were here for the weekend, we decided to go to Disney World (Magic Kingdom) and Sea World.
Disney was fun but we just didn't have enough time in the day to see everything in the park. The kids had fun though and that's all that mattered to us. We wanted it to be all about them. My 5 yr old had the most magical experience with Cinderella. It was truely magical and made me tear up. My 3 yr old was so happy he got to see and meet Buzz Lightyear. We are planning our trip to go next year when daddy gets home from Deployment and we can fly Nana down. We're hoping to spend a week down there.
There are so many more pictures. I'll post some more later

This weekend my parents came down to spend it with the kids. This was their last weekend before we move. Right now we're only 5 hours away but come Thursday we'll be 12 hour away :( My mom is taking this move especially hard. Her and my dad are so good to my kids. The kids love spending time with them. So I was trying to think of something to make for them, from the kids of course. WE made them cute coffee cups but I wanted to do something better. Now mind you, I lack crafty skills. I am just not a crafty person no matter how hard I try. My mom always says to the kids "I love you to the moon and back" so I thought it would be really cute to make a sign for them to hang in their room from the kids. I was going to make one for each kid to hang in their room too but after making one I've decided to just order some from

This is not my first rodeo but it sure does feel that way. I don't know if this happens to other Military wives but every time we move it feels like the first time. I can never remember how we did things last time. This is our first move with 3 kids. That alone is stressing me out. I have to pack and organize for 5 people plus 2 pets. Families bigger then mine, I have no idea how you do it. But I give you mad props.
Today to mover came to pack. The company scheduled two pack days but apparently we don't have as much crap as they thought. The packers got it all done today. We have decided to camp it out in the house for the next 2 nights. Friday the movers come to load it all and my parents come to take the kids for the weekend. All weekend I get to clean and paint the house...yay.....not! I always feel like I leave my house nicer then when we moved in.
I think the one thing I'm dreading the most is the drive. We have to make a 12 hr drive. We have 2 cars so I will drive the van with 2 kids and the dog. My husband will drive his hunk of junk with a kid and the cat. At this point I'm just praying his car makes it to Florida. I am fully prepared to sell it for scrap if it doesn't. lol.
