when in Florida...

the campbell 5
Where have we been? Well, we've been here-
micky & minnie
We went there with Grandad and YiaYia-
Katie loved Dumbo-
Tristan loved the Speedway-
tristan's favorite ride
Kenna got to meet her favorite princess-
meeting Merida
And I got to watch them all be surprised, mesmerized, excited and even scared out of their wits a few times
(little girls on the Dinosaur ride at Animal Kingdom = big mistake.)
mice watching fish
In addition to the camera, I carried around a little something, um someone, extra-
Yes, that's right. Baby #4 will be joining the clan this summer and we are thrilled. Our cup runneth over-
those crazy tea cups
I didn't mind that the baby gave me a good excuse to stay out of that spinning tea cup (you get no mercy with Shawn at the wheel.) It was kind of a bummer to skip Space Mountain though. Also in case you're wondering, I can tell you where every single bathroom is located in the Magic Kingdom. Every. Single. One.

So there you have it. Where we've been and a bit of fun news too! We had a great time. Disney World really is an amazing place and I took around 800 pictures so you can bet you'll see more of it this week.
Just as soon as we've recovered from all the fun-

Yes, I'm still here. It's been quiet, I know. I guess you could say I've gone into a bit of a winter hibernation. Things are just- still. But I'll be emerging soon I'm sure of it. Spring arrives very, very early in Florida after all and we're already seeing the signs...

birthday girl

When I was One, I was just begun.

When I was Two, I was nearly new.
When I was Three, I was hardly me.

When I was Four, I was not much more.
little beauty
When I was Five, I was just alive.
oh MY girl.
But now I am six, I'm as cleaver as ever.

So I think I'll be six now forever and ever.

Happy birthday, my sweet Kenna Bear. I will never ever forget January 5, 2007 and the beautiful baby girl miracle that was placed in my arms. I love watching you grow. I love you. ~mom

a thought for a new year

me and myself
This life is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed.
-Martin Luther
