Laurie, that picture of you and your husband is great. It's nice to have a good semi-current picture together. Often the only pictures we have of just us together are on vacation!

Hope things go well with the medical appointments.

As long as the Easter bunny came, which I see he did, sure the kids were fine with no Ham this year.
Thank You.....I think the last time I wore heels (actual heels & not flats) was in high school!!! (no joke!!)

The bunny did come.....thank goodness we took care of that ahead of time!!

The mickey topper came about when my first cake stuck to the pan and busted and I needed to do something with it, so I decided to make the topper- I made it cake pop style, so you crumble the cake, add in some icing and then I packed it into a small bowl lined with plastic wrap. I then stuck it in the freezer to firm up. When I was assembling I covered the base with black fondant. The ears are oreo cookies which were covered in black fondant and then stuck into the base with toothpicks.

If you canít take the classes, I would recommend getting the fondant course book from Michaels as they explain really well how to roll it and cover cakes, then it is just a matter of practicing. Let me know if you canít get it there and I can probably scan my book.
Cool.....thanks for the tips. My son Tyler got his degree in Pastry/culinary. They just did very little with "standard" cakes.....so he never played around with fondant at home.

Thank You!! I figured if we had to get dressed up, we better get some pics. It was a beautiful day out.....just didn't realize how washed out these pics ended up being. I did a little fixing on photobucket.

Michayla's meds are going to double within the couple weeks. We're hoping that will get the hitting thing under control again. If not, she'll have us drop the busperone and increase the night med~Trazadone to see if that helps. After that it's onto psych drugs that can have long term issues...hoping to avoid that if possible.

Hope you and the family are doing ok and had a great easter. I thought we we the only weirdos who made DIY easter baskets. Much more personal that way. If you don't mind me asking what is RAD? I tried googling it but no real explanation. Is it developmental disorder or just a natural disorder? Anyways wish you much more strength along your journey. You must have blessed with the gift of great patience to take care of such a big family. Looking forward to more of the TR.

Thank You and thanx or your interest in RAD.

http://www.attachment.org/parents/letter-for-teachers/ Here's a nice overview and what's going on & what could possibly happen if left untreated or the damage is really bad.

This is becoming very common in kids that have been in foster care. Our system is messed up and becomes all about the parents rights, no matter the damage being done to these kids. Very sad.

Since we were there at the same time, I imagine a lot of things were the same.....lol

I just don't dress up and going out & buying all the stuff and then getting sick......was just a bummer!

I wore flats for my wedding too.......

Well it's been a long time since I wrote on this report......but here we go!!

Day Four, March 2:

Nick & Marie were up early (like 5:45am early) so they could make it to Magic Morning. I, opted to sleep......... (I think Marie would have too, but she was a trooper & got up and went with Nick).

They made their way down Main Street and did the Sleeping Beauty Walk-Thru.























Their next stop was Snow White's Scary Adventure.





Then Pinocchio's Daring Journey.

A flight on Dumbo was next and then a picture op on the Dumbo ride elephant (located behind the attraction). LOVE the picture of Marie.....very cute!







Now a ride on Alice in Wonderland...........



Since the line was short for Finding Nemo, they decided to go for a ride.



Next up was Autopia.



......and then Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters.



Still having time before needing to meet me for breakfast, they headed to Snow White's Grotto.





They even got to take a ride on Casey Jr.







It was time to head towards the DLH and Goofy's Kitchen....so they headed to the Monorail and got to sit with the pilot in the front!!

Laurie, I'd love to see a picture of your new trailer! Sounds like it's going to be a really fun summer.

For some reason I thought I had posted pics of our new rig & trailer.....glad you asked!!





Looking in thru the back door into the bedroom:



Standard trailer kitchen:



Mirrored bathroom door (left) and a good sized fridge & separate freezer (right):



Dinette (which I love that it's booth style) that will convert to a queen bed, and the cupboard above the dinette actually folds down to make a bunk bed.



The trailer is a 25'......will be a tad tight with the 6 of us, but we really only sleep and play games in them. We love camping and it's been years since we were able to do so!!

So we had to get a rig to tow the trailer, so we got this 2005 Ford Expedition (73,000 miles).





It seats 8!!! Something we've needed for a long time and finally have!!



The seats on each side will totally fold up to make it easier to get to the back seat (and to hook kids into their seats). All the seats in the 2 back rows fold down.





It came with a pretty expensive/fancy stereo/navigation/cd/dvd player. The glove box is full of wires to hook up a computer, phone & ipod to.....crazy!!



I can't tell you how excited I am to be back into a Ford Expedition!! We had one before and well........ this happened:













There wasn't a piece of metal (including the roof) that wasn't totally destroyed. Derek was driving Mike to work and hit a patch of ice (back in 2011) and they hit the cable that separates the highway and then rolled it. There wasn't any damage to the interior of the vehicle and Mike & Derek were fine...not hurt!! This proved to me the worth of our Ford and I couldn't want to get into another one. My stepdad helped us out by carrying a loan on a minivan he found for us. We were very appreciative of him doing this for us, but we never felt safe in it (and it ended up being a lemon)......so I am a happy mommy!!!

I love the new trailer! I hope to upgrade to something similar someday. We just have a pop up right now. We love it and it's a great starter.

First trip of the season starts tomorrow. Can't wait!

Enjoy your new trailer

That trailer represents my favorite kind of camping ... it comes with a mattress and a bathroom! I like the great outdoors, I just don't sleep well on hard ground and I hate pit toilets or worse. My father was a backpacker and his idea of luxury camping was allowing us a tent go with our sleeping bag!

I only camp in a trailer.....I can't do the tent thing! I like getting away, but certain things have to be there for comforts.
