Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

A Birthday Celebration


Last week I had a milestone of a birthday.

Mimi Sue turned gulp 60!

The Mister decided we needed to celebrate in a big way the big day
so he took the entire family to Disneyland.



We stayed at the Grand Californian Resort.
It was gorgeous!


We walked around Downtown Disney.


I couldn't seem to get all the grandkids together in one picture but 
here's some of them.











There's a reason they call it the happiest place on earth.





Had to have a Dole Whip float.  


Had to have lunch at the Golden Horseshoe.





Had a great time hanging out with our kids and their kids.

Made a few memories and a large pile of laundry.

Thank you Mister!  You made my dreams come true.

Once again.
