If you have visited here before, you can probably see that I have changed the name of the blog again. I started blogging at 4URuthie to tell the story of our journey to adopt our 1st daughter. I changed it to Mountains for Maggie when we were praying for God to move mountains on behalf of our 2nd daughter. Well now it is no longer just Ruthie’s or Maggie’s stories. It is now our family's story, and the stories of those we share life with, as we Conquer Mountains together. Both ConqueringMountains.net and 4URuthie.blogspot will lead here.

Home from Disney- darn

The trip was great. For Ruthie the highlight was Minnie Mouse, for Jack it was the monorail and trains, and for Sam it was confetti. Yes- confetti. Magic Kingdom has Mickey Mouse confetti all randomly on the ground around the park and Sam decided to pick up every piece that he saw. It came to the point that I had to view the loss of time like a 30 minute wait in line for a ride. Essentially losing 30 minutes of the day for Sam to pick up confetti was going to have to be viewed like waiting in line for Ruthie to see Minnie Mouse. It is the price you pay for the experience and memories that are unique to each child.

The precious confetti. He also had to regularly count how many he had.

The Minnie Mouse costume got a little hot for Ruthie so of course I had to stop in and buy her this dress to change into.

OH, I'm so so jealous! We were planning on going to Disney World this February but then decided to wait another year since we were/are hoping to meet our baby this spring. Funny how you talk about the confetti--my kids each had their own collection of confetti that they gathered last time we were there a couple years ago. In fact, we brought quite a bit home! Oh, I love Disney--I might like it more than the kids do!
