Off We Go!


If all goes according to plan (when does it?) we'll be adding to our childhood essentials list with a Disneyland vacation (stopping first at my grandparents' home) in the next couple days. Posting will be sporadic, but I'm sure that pictures will be burning a hole in my proverbial pocket and won't wait until we get home to share with you.

Maybe a few of you would be willing to pray for us. I'm feeling much better, but not 100%. I'll post more about that when we get home. My sister, Shannon, is traveling with us to help with the boys, and I am extremely thankful for her willingness to come along for the ride. We are driving at night. A 13 (or more) hour car ride with 3 little boys isn't going to be a cake walk, but I'm sure we'll survive.

Oh, maybe I should mention that our truck broke down yesterday and was towed to the shop this morning. Would you mind praying that it will be simple (and inexpensive, ha!) to fix and ready for us to head out tomorrow evening? It died on me twice while I was driving home from an appointment yesterday. I'm grateful that it started back up both times so that I could make it home. (It didn't start that evening when we were going to drive it to the shop.) I'm grateful that it didn't die on us in the middle of the night, hours and hours away from our destination, at the beginning of our vacation.

Have a terrific week, friends!

Ooooh - an E ticket! That's a blast to the past. I'll be praying for your safe travels and good health for you all AND your car!

Your in our prayers. It's funny actually it isn't funny how our car always seems to know when a big trip is coming.

May the boys sleep all the way there!

Hi Heidi

How wonderful, a trip to Disneyland. Your sister is an angel to come with you.

You and your precious family will be in my prayers. Hoping and praying all goes well with your car as well.

Wishing you a safe, peaceful trip. I can't wait to see your pictures and hear all about your adventures. Your boys are going to absolutely love it - it will be a much cherished and memorable holiday.

I linked back to your childhood essentials list. Just beautiful. It was such a pleasure to read again. I soaked it all up and loved it.

Lots of love
Elise.

Have a wonderful time. The pics will be worth the wait. :)

You ladies are the best!

The truck is repaired (wahoo!) to the tune of $900 (whaaaa!). Leif came down with a cold today (of course), so I am praying like crazy that it isn't a bad one and no one else manages to get it (not likely).

Have a great time. Shannon is the best! I'm sure she'll enjoy it as much as the rest of you. Disneyland...what a great place to take 3 little boys...

I've said a prayer for you.
