George slept in Colby's cardboard castle during the day, and in Colby's cozy bed at night.
In the morning, George was happy to see we had bananas for his breakfast.
It was a cold, stormy day, so Colby, George and Tyler made a tent and had a picnic lunch inside the house
We all got to play one of Colby's favorite board games, Disney SceneIt.
(George let mama win)
We made sure to include George in our family devotions and told George how much God loves him. Colby prayed that George wouldn't be a naughty little monkey the next day at Sunday School
George was on his best behavior at Sunday School, where he met Colby's buddy Ethan and his teacher, Mr. Gabe.
George got to meet Colby's great grandma when she came to babysit.
So many fun times were had with George, we couldn't even fit them all. We hope sometime George will be able to come visit again!
Thanks Mrs. Lopez! We heart George!

At least until Brian and I start needing them. ;)
[side note: I'm impressed that he had $11k in his bank account in the first place]
Anyway, if that wasn't bad enough, the utility company refused to refund his money. They gave him a credit! Like he says in the video, he pretty much has his bill paid up for the next seven years or so.
Can you imagine? I mean, it seems like poor customer service is the norm these days, but come on! This was obviously a mistake.
The company finally did issue a refund, but only after he went to the media. How kind.

He's going to Disneyland!
Don't forget these guys on the back!
Snow white and her friends
She rotates as "Whistle While You Work" plays; check out Bashful hiding in the back behind the globe
I love the detail on the jewels
I had a little trouble photographing this one because of lighting issues, but the fiber optic fairy is very cool. It plays "Toyland"
Our plan is to construct some sort of shelving in the art niche to display these. Hopefully we can get something strong enough to hold them all up!

When the kids were babies, at times they would get a little overzealous while nursing and bite the...uh.."hand"... that fed them. After the fingertip episode, I'm *really* glad I'm not breastfeeding anymore.

Well it just so happened that today they were having a fabulous sale at the Disney Store online- up to 70% off snowglobes! Of course I had to jump on it, especially since they were also offering free shipping on orders over $60.00.
I originally had eight of them in my cart, but I didn't want to go overboard (too late!), so I narrowed it down to just six. The other two will have to come along later.
So now I anxiously await the arrival of my newest snowglobes: Lady and the Tramp, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Mickey's Nightmare (not scary), Pete's Dragon, Disneyland, and Pinocchio and the Blue Fairy. I'll add pictures when they get here. Now to find somewhere to put them all!
