Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

There's No Place Like Home

We are home after a whirlwind visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. We had an absolutley marvelous trip, tiring, but blessed! So, 72 hours after leaving home, we're home with over 400 pictures. I decided I would try to post something every day this week, highlighting one part of our trip. I'll add tips for those planning to go to Disney daily, too!

Ellie began enjoying herself within minutes of arriving at Walt Disney World. Before I knew what she was doing, she was climbing in a dresser drawer and shouting surprise.

We began our Disney Vacation at Downtown Disney and the Disney Marketplace. Here is where our princesses received a magical makeover by fairy godmothers in training at the Bibbi Bobbidi Boutique. We were excited when we learned our friends were going to be in Orlando that night. They joined us at Downtown Disney, for a makeover for E and dinner at the Rainforest Cafe.

Enjoy the Slideshow! Then scroll down for Disney Tips:

Disney Tip #1: If you arrived at Walt Disney World one day and don't want to go late in the evening for one of the parks....go to Downtown Disney. The atmosphere is fun! There are plenty of shops, restaurants, and photo ops, too! You can spend no money there and still enjoy yourself. Of course, I'm not good at that!

Here are a few fun photos that didnt' cost a penny.

Oh my goodness. They are such beautiful princesses. I just thoroughly enjoyed watching the slideshow of their makeovers. Too fun. I can't wait to see more pictures and glean tips from you throughout the week, Bobbi.

PS. Our surgery countdown begins. Thursday is the big day for Josie. I'm nervous.

So beautiful! And I'll just mention that I would have *LOVED* doing that as a little girl! Can't wait to take Abigail one day!

Looks like you had so much fun. I am so sad that we missed it. I am even sadder to say that we found out today that Levi's medical will not be scheduled until (at the earliest) the first week in January. I don't even feel like blogging about it.
