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!

Downtown Disney

I was so glad The girls were thrilled when they saw the Disney World signs as we drove to eat at T-Rex. The boys really didn't know what it was all about. They just knew we were going to eat with dinosaurs, and that was enough for them.
After we left the restaurant, though, we spent the rest of the evening roaming around Downtown Disney. Having never been to the parks, the boys thought it was wonderful simply to see the Disney figures. Good thing their daddy didn't make this trip. He might not have allowed them to pose with Cinderella. (Shhh. Don't tell him.)

I took all of the children, Whitney too, inside the World of Disney store. Can you imagine what that was like for the boys. Display after display of nothing but Disney! Some parents may have been frustrated by the experience, but I LOVED it. I told all of them they could each buy something, but it couldn't be more than $10. While the boys didn't quite get that idea, I told them what they bought had to be "xiao" (little.)

I let them pick up and touch anything they wanted to...well anything that wouldn't break. I let them carry something around the store until they found something they liked better. I took them from one display to another and back again. No one had more fun than Mama just watching the boys with wide eyed wonder, knowing they could have a gift. They never complained if I said, "No." They didn't ask for something bigger. They just enjoyed the moment of being in that store! They simply loved the idea that they would get to choose something.
And, I just loved Disney!
I love to watch my children enjoy it.
I love to hear the music.
I love to see the sights.
I love the atmosphere.
We stopped and looked at anything they wanted to see.
We stopped and took photos with any object they wanted to stand in front of.
We spent 5 hours, just eating, walking, and "shopping". We all had fun. We made memories.

And, when we left, I had my own treasure:
Don't you think this antennae topper is the perfect treasure for a Disney loving Navy mom?

Good night Minnie!
