The Sign - Gratitude Campaign

Little bits here and there to share. Sorry I haven't posted much lately - I was all excited about the new year and then bam - hit a wall. It's only been two days and hopefully it will lift this weekend.
We had a great time with the Mouse. It was crowded but we had fantastic weather in the 80s all 4 days and it was of course, Disney-amazing. Rachel was an extra in the Indiana Jones show. The girls had a great time but it really can't be called a "vacation". Nancy and I went over to see the fireworks at Cinderella's castle. WOW oh wow - it was AWESOME. I love fireworks. When she saw the castle, she gave me a big hug with tears in her eyes and said, "thanks for bringing me here. I've always wanted to see this." I realized, it has always been my dream to do this for them. I took 719 photos.
While at the airport, we saw a couple of soldiers and I wish I had seen this video. The Gratitude Campaign. Way cool - I love the sign.
Take a look at this pup (it's a video) and tell me if he doesn't need a friend to play with... You know, that kind of snow is foreign to Texans - I don't know where Bailey lives but that is unbelievable!
I saw the Crop A Dile II on HSN last night and I had to marvel at the brilliance of the product. You design a tool that is revolutionary but limited in scope. Everyone gets hooked on it and then you redesign it so that it works with the industry standard (12 x 12 paper) and sell it again. Whether it was intended or not, it is brilliant. I am also amazed at the fervor at which women (and I am one of them) get about new scrapbooking supplies ... gotta have it... lemme at it... I want it! It really is remarkable.

And if I get one more prayer email about passing it on or something terrible will befall me or my family, I WILL SCREAM! I can get inspired by well written words and even a tear or two but don't screw it up at the end by telling me I have to send it within 6.2 seconds or I'll die. Crazy. Here's to a great new year!

PS - Hello Brisbane! I was there 21 years ago and LOVED it!
