Disney and a Peace 'n Quiet card :)

Helllllo blogging friends!  Happy Monday to you! :)  We are home from Disney and had an absolute fabulous time, albeit a short getaway.   We are so blessed to live close enough to hop over for the weekend and we enjoyed every second of lil man's birthday weekend - his face was just as priceless as can be because he knew we were celebrating HIM.   On every ride, I would shout out over the noise "Happy Birthday, T!" - except Space Mountain was in the middle of a drop so it sounded something like "Happy Birthyeeeeeeawwwwwwwwomgoooooooooooooooosh!" ;)  Dh asked him several times if he was having fun and his answer?  "Of course! I'm in Disney World!"   That pretty much says it all :)

Disney and Peace 'n Quiet?   I know, quite the oxymoron!  LOL!  Actually the P 'n Q is from my card - I bought this Penny Black stamp when it was first released - I knew I *had* to have it!  It's perfect for memories of my past (brother!) and my wee one's now.  I didn't get the chance to ink it up til this past week.

I remember trying to set up a toy section for lil man on the dining room table but wanted him to be surprised - so the only thing I thought of was to tell my oldest daughter that I was going to send him down the hall to her room.  I told her to keep an eye out for him and to entertain him until I called for him.  She gave me a wink and a "cool!" and then I told him something I won't soon forget - just playing around.  She came down the hall a few seconds later and asked "what did you say to him?  He's all sad and distraught!  He said "Mommy said to get out of her hair for a little while, but I don't know why - I wasn't anywhere near her head!"   Oooooooops!  Yes, I felt SO VERY BAD!  That was one of those mommy-isms that you wish you could rewind and can't ;)  Well, I had that fiasco in mind when creating this lil card!

Here's the front:

And that was our happy little weekend!  It's good to be home even though the week ahead looks like I'll need a personal planner just to get through it all!

Thanks for stoppin' by!

Bigger Blessings!
