Counting down to Make-A-Wish

We’re in a bit of a frenzy in these parts with the typical need to get a lot of things done before one heads out for a vacation.   Between school, work, household and activities it does feel like all of us will have very full schedules up until departure next Thursday.  We’re excited.  Some of us are packing.  Some of us were packed three weeks ago (guess who–also the same sick person who has the Valentines ready to go).  Some of us have yet to pack (and won’t until after sundown Wednesday).  Lots of ground to cover between now and then but that makes the prospect of settling into an airplane seat and breathing a sigh of relief seem all the more exciting.

In the meantime, there’s still the occasional impromptu moment where the kids are goofing around after dinner.  I hear there’s pretty good entertainment in Orlando, but I’m not sure if they can top this:

There’s so much in store for us in the weeks ahead, but more important than all the cool attractions is the fact that we get to experience them as a family.   Rudy is one of those kids that can’t actually articulate his own wish so when the Make-A-Wish granters interviewed us, we both felt clearly that his would involve the siblings he loves so deeply.  There’s nothing like watching him light up even for the silly Chubby routine.  Here’s looking forward to a week’s worth of golden moments!

  1. So excited for you all. The big sibs deserve a great holiday as do Mom, Dad and Rudy. I cannot wait to enjoy all the vicarious thrills of the Geylings in DisneyWorld!!!

  2. I love that sick family member who is already decorated for Valentine’s Day. The Geyling house is a great place to go about 4-5 weeks before a holiday. You can ask yourself, “Which holiday is coming up next?” and the Geyling home decor will answer your question.

  3. Chubby bunny…. very cute! Now, when y’all go over there yonder to that ther park…don’t ya forgit us here on line. Make sure ya keep us abreast of yer adventures! xoxo Jo
