I'm so glad this week is over. It's been a stressful one and it totally dragged. I hate weeks like that.

We're still waiting to get approval for a short sale so that we can move along with the house. We were supposed to be out of attorney review yesterday but apparently whoever was assigned to our case closed it and we had to resubmit everything. So hopefully we'll be able to get that today and finally get going. I want to know that everything is settled so that we can start packing. We are leaving for Disney next week and if everything goes okay we're supposed to close on the 31st ~ a week after we get back from vacation. Whew! It's going to be busy around here for a while.

Little J's first birthday is on the 18th, while we're in Disney, so we're just having a little get-together on Sunday. My mother-in-law is cooking stuffed shells so I don't have to worry about food. I was debating whether or not to do goodie bags for the kids. I just feel bad because this is so last minute and I feel like Little J is getting shafted. We had a big party for Big J's 1st birthday. But, then I remind myself that we'll be in Disney. What better way to celebrate a birthday!!

I'm excited to go away but still nervous about traveling with kids. Little J has been such a pain this past week too. She just does not sit still. She's not happy in the stroller, she's not happy in the car seat, what's she going to do stuck on a plane for 4 hours? Oy!!

Anyway. the weather was pretty nice here yesterday so I took the girls outside to play and of course, I can't go anywhere without my camera. It was Little J's first time playing on the ground. She kept putting the acorns in her mouth. I took her for a spin on Big J's trike and she liked that.

Oh, we're going to the portrait studio where I work to get some pictures of Little J for her 1st birthday. I'm bringing a cake and we're going to let her get all messy. Should be fun! I'll let you know how it goes.

Have a great weekend!!

Did you say Disney? Wow, that is awesome. You will have such a great time. I am sure the kiddies will too.

Love the pictures! We took Squeaks to the studio with a cake for her 1st birthday and she wouldn't do anything with it. We finally smeared it on her, just to get the picture, but she wasn't going to dig into it at all!

Good luck with the house. Try to enjoy your vacation!
