Fabric Winners and one Fun Weekend!

I have to start this post off by saying I have one of the best brothers on the entire planet.  He is such a great brother, son, and uncle.  My brother, Jay, is also an awesome choral teacher.   Yep, I've got about 2 notes I can sing and my brother went to college on a scholarship based on his voice.  Now he teaches chorus and music in Orlando.

His students performed in December a few times at Disney and as their instructor, he got free tickets for each performance.  And what did my sweet baby brother do with those free tickets?  He took my entire family to Disney for the day!  That's right, he used his annual pass for himself and spread the other six tickets he received plus two more he got from a friend to take my Mom, Dad, sister, brother-in-law and Chris and me and the kids to the Magic Kingdom on Saturday.  His girlfriend went with us as well (she has an annual pass too or I'm sure he would have got her a ticket.  :))

I think Chris and Oren may have not yet realized we were at the Happiest Place on Earth... haha!

How awesome is he??

Oren tried REALLY hard to pull that sword from the stone!

The PhilHarMagic Show is AWESOME!

We had a great day.  We didnt' rush to see it all, but just enjoyed ourselves and pretty much saw all that we wanted to.  We were beat by the end of the night, but happy and content with a day spent with our favorite people doing some pretty fun stuff.

THANKS AGAIN UNCLE JAY!!!!!! the winners of my fugly fabric giveaway.  I used, but I don't know how to do that cool screen capture thingie, so take my word for it, okay...

THANKS AGAIN to everyone who commented and became a new follower!  I can't believe how many of you wanted to stick around and read about what I have to say!  

I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow.  We're pretty low-key about it around here.  Other than class parties and a little chocolate for the kids, we don't do much and I'm totally okay with that.  BUT, I made something special for the kids' teachers and I'll be back with that tomorrow...


  1. What an awesome brother you have! It's been several years since we last made it out to Disney World. We've been dying to go again but the airfare for a family of four on the west coast is outrageous!

  2. You do have a terrific brother! He can do one thing that I really wish I could-sing. I don't even want to be able to sing wonderfully, but enough to carry a tune. Jealous!
