i am 27! i've been telling people i'm 27 for a while now so it seems like i've been 27 for ages. my birthday was wonderful. Derek took the day off to spend with me. he took me shopping and to sushi for lunch. then we headed to my bro and sis's for a bit...and of course a party. here are a few of the lovely things i received.

just proud really...

of my dashing husband, that is. God has truly anointed him with the gift of songwriting. exciting things are happening with The Waiting Kind...I can't wait to see what God's plan is for them. they have been in the studio the past few days working on a radio edit - it sounds amazing!!!! the radio dudes are anxious to have this single so we'll see what happens. keep praying for them as they seek God in all of this! i'm just so proud of him!

Disneyworld and us.

i can't believe i've been out of school for a month now! but enough about that. :)

as many of you know, my family went to Disneyworld a few weeks ago and if you have been reading my sis's blog, you probably know what i'm going to say and have probably even seen some of the pictures i'm putting up...but oh's your choice to read this. ha.

Disneyworld was lovely, truly. it was precious to see the look on Addie's face as we entered the different parks. of course seeing her expressions was one of my favorite parts of the whole trip. i just love that girl! we all had so much fun! here are some highlights:

--Magic Kingdom is so much bigger in Disneyworld...i think? least it seems that way.
--Addie braved Splash Mountain and Thunder Mountain Railroad - what a champ!
--Rhett threw up all over Derek at the end of the first, long, hot, day - HA HA HA.
--Beauty and the Beast musical. wonderful. except my dear friend Jamie Lubiens could out sing any of the musical stars we saw (thought of you Jame).
--not even brushing my hair for 5 days.
--Tower of Terror - rode it 3 times - loved it every time!
--Addie was chose out of tons of kids to play Boo in a Monsters Inc. show - they choice the cutest, of course. :)
--Mom and Dad going on Tower of Terror = hilarious.
--Islands of favorite day.
--Dueling Dragons - so fast, so awesome.
--Coming in 2010: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!!!!!! can't explain how excited i am for this.
--frozen lemonade.
--soaking wet on the water rides...especially my mom who got the brunt of everything. love you MOM!
--nephew Rhett was an absolute trooper...shoot, he was happier than all of us hot, sticky people most of the time.
--Medieval Times! hadn't been there since high school...forgot how cool it is. Derek's new dream is to be a knight...not even a new dream really, he's always wanted to be one.
--swimming in the indoor pool at our condo.
--joy, laughter, and love.

i would like to go back soon...or now. until next time D-world - cheers!!!
