I'm Back!

Wow! What a fabulous vacation we had. Now I just need a vacation from my vacation. You know how vacations can be with little ones. . . they don't generally include relaxation. But we had plenty of fun and it was WARM!!! Hallelujah! I am hoping we brought a little of the warm weather back with us.
Anybody heard about the Give a Day, Get a Disney Day? Ummm, can I just say-- AWESOME! You can look online for a service project in your area, serve for a day and get a free ticket to Disneyland! Yes, really FREE! Although, I just checked today and it looks like we did ours in the nick of time-- sadly, it has ended. But the good news is that 1 million people donated their time for a day in their community. That, too, is awesome.
One of the projects in the our area was for Project Linus. Project Linus is a great organization that dontates blankets to children in hospitals throughout the country. I have donated blankets in the past to Project Linus and was excited to do it again. Here are the blankets we donated for our free Disney tickets:
First, a crocheted afghan that I had finished quite a while ago that just hadn't found a home yet. Bet you didn't even know I crocheted, did you? ;0)
Also, several self-binding blankets, using this tutorial.
So, after a few days in warm, sunny Vegas with our best friends, we packed back up in the car and drove the 4+ hours to LA. Grandma and Aunt Lacey also came with us. So much fun! My girls were all first-times. And age 5 and 6 are the perfect age for Disneyland. Absolutely magical!
We also hit the beach-- another first time. Everyone loved, loved, loved it!
Hope your Spring Break was just as fun! I loved reading all your comments for the giveaway. Are you ready for a winner? Here you go!
