Finally Another Post

I'm still here. I bet you were beginning to wonder. I've been busy doing other not so crafty things. Ireland started first grade...

the first day
She also started cheerleading

Of course we've been consumed with planning for Disney. I'm absolutely obsessed. We leave at the end of October.
we're actually at 47 days and counting now
I've been crafting a little with the countdown above, and a couple of shirts...

and of course the pirate costume for Pirate Night on the cruise ship

I think I'm more excited than Ireland. I've bought everything Disney... costumes, backpacks for the parks, glow sticks, shoes for walking, Smash book supplies, lanyards, pins for trading, and more.

So you see, there has been little time for crocheting or knitting socks. Now I'm obsessed with planning the excursions, and hotel the night before the cruise, and dining plans at Disney World. We are going on the 3 day cruise to the Bahamas first. Then we'll go over to Disney World for 6 days. I wish we could squeeze in a day to go over to Tampa and Clearwater Beach. We'll see.

I can't wait. 

Oh, I forgot to show you Michael's finished project of Ireland's room. That will be the next post. He has recently started a new one. He's now staining the exterior of the house.

Until next time, 


  1. Your photos are very beautiful and your daughter is adorable with the outfit of cheerleader. I like very much the countdown you made!

  2. So glad to see your comments on my blog and to pop over and see your post. Ireland is even more beautiful as she grows up, 1st grad is sooooooo big! She looks adorable on her first day of school, her cheer leading outfit and that pirate costume. And you are all going to have so much fun on your trip. Florida should be behaving weather-wise by that time. It is hot as Hades still right now but will be glorious when you arrive. A trip of a lifetime really, and Ireland is the perfect age for it as she will be able to do so much and it will all be so magical for her.
    Hugs to you Liz,

  3. You are going to love WDW we have been several times and loved every minute of it, the DDP is brilliant Have fun

  4. I just discovered your blog through a beautiful crocheted shawl on Ravelry. This trip you are planning sounds so exciting!


    Your pattern is being sold on Ebay by an unscruplulous seller and uses your daughter's photo!!

  6. Since you're going in October, I hope you're paying the extra money to go to Mickey's Not-so-scary Halloween Party!
