 After 2 + years of unemployment, and THOUSANDS of resumes' being sent out without a nibble, Daddy GOT A JOB!  And not just ANY job, oh no, he got his DREAM JOB!  The one he has dreamed about for over 30 years, the one he thought he would never be lucky enough to get. The job he always said.."someday I would love to ~~~~~". 
 Well, it happened and we know it was meant to be.  He applied for job "X"  but during the interview, they said.. you know, I think "~~~~" would be perfect for you!  And that was it. One resume', one face to face interview, and he got the job..... Daddy is on cloud nine... he said he would have paid THEM to do this job...Now don't get carried away daddy, we like the idea of a paycheck again!
Anyhow... here's Daddy's new job...
 He's working for THE MOUSE! 
 He's "Captain Mike" and will be driving the boats!  What an ideal job for an ex-NAVY man, ex-boat owner, and retired daddy.

Our little cutie turned 7 today.  She's been home almost 2 years and has changed so much. We'll celebrate at the Magic Kingdom on Sunday, but for tonight, we had her favorite food..Chinese of course. She loved her butterfly cake and her LEGO FRIENDS which she has been wanting since Christmas.
  Ryan took over and built them for her and then the boys brought their Star Wars Legos into the girls room and they all played together. I'll bet you didn't know that Darth Vader and Darth Mull liked the pet beauty shop did you?
Here are some pics we took tonight, but please don't notice the boxes still needing unpacked, and the grill that was just assembled and still in the family room in the background. I don't know why it's taking me so long to unpack :(
