Five for Friday

Linking up with Kacey this week.  I am on break for 3 weeks, so this week has been a lot about having fun.


Martin Luther King, Jr., small book

I have a FREEBIE small book of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  You can download it here.  I won't be using it this year, so I hope the rest of you can.

My brother received an award from the Mayor of our City for his 30 years of military service.  My brother lives in Colorado and had come down for Christmas.  The Mayor presented him the award at our Church.  She listed all of his tour of dutys, some of them I didn't know he did. He retired in July because of medical or he would probably still be enlisted.  Too many times jumping out of airplanes caused injury to his back. Our Care Pastor is on the left.  

When my brother joined the service, out of high school, our original Pastor gave him the bible that he carried during the Korean War as a Chaplain.  My brother said that he took it with him on every mission and it gave him peace and kept him safe.  There was not a dry eye in the building.

I am super proud of my baby brother.

I spent time with these two sweet bugs this week.  They both have distinct personalities and are so much fun to hang out with.  I can't believe that they are 9 months already.  I'm already planning their year birthday party - Minnie theme, of course.

I went to Disneyland, 3 times this week.  One trip with hubby and two trips without him.  He got that nasty flu that is going around,  I decided to head to Disneyland - so I wouldn't get it.  Plus, I wanted to take pictures of certain things. Find out about it here.

This is Jingles.  She was dedicated to Julie Andrews in 2008 as a Disney Ambassador.

I found out on Sunday that the carousel horses have names.  I wanted to take pictures of the horses that were on the ride and the Cast Members were super sweet to let me take pictures of the horses.

I got some crafting done.

I made these magnets for the fridge from the buttons that I got on Sunday.  Super easy to do.

Walgreens had a coupon for 60% off calendars, so I decided to make a calendar from our trips to Disneyland this last year - especially since my kitchen is getting a Disney make-over.

I, also, cooked most nights this week, shocking.  I had to make sure hubby was fed when I left him for the day.

Well, I am off to Disneyland with a couple of the grand babes today.  The wonderful Cast Member gave me VIP seats to the firework show tonight, so excited.

Pin It!


  1. Have so much fun! Loved all of your pictures. They are wonderful. Those babies are too stinkin cute. What beautiful eyes.I also need a favor one day. I'll send you some money but two of my necklaces went missing. They were both yellow. I use them EVERY day for math and reading stations. Everyone adores them. No rush but one day can you make two more or teach me? :)

  2. Congrats to your brother!
    I love the twin pictures.
