Orlando and St. Patrick's Day

So sorry that I haven't posted before now. Just seems like everyday since we have been back has been something going on. Two Birthday for Clark, who turned 20, and one for my Mom and brother, Louis. Both parties were fun, of course!

And we have been getting ready for tax time as well....I bet some of you feel the same way.....YUCK! The only good thing about it is getting money back...Yeah!! Too bad it is already hiss!

This is a pic of Wayne's sister and her family, my brother, Louis and us getting ready to board the monorail at Magic Kingdom. It was a chilly day and it never seemed to get any better
either.....the wind picked up later in the day! But, it was still good to be away from stress and troubles at home!!

Here is Louis at Sea World, again, another chilly day. But, everyone had fun watching and feeding the dolphins! Wayne and I went on the Kraken ride....OMG that was nuts! I screamed the entire time. By the way, my brother is a special needs fella too. He has Williams Syndrome which involves similar facial characteristics. He was a hoot..everyone was his friend!

Wayne and I in Canada at Epcot. Not quite as cold there, thank goodness. We ate Mexican and English pub food. We have been there before and this time was a bit of a let down, nothing really
exciting going
on. We probably won't go back for a while now.

Okay, finally here are two cards I just finished for St. Patrick's Day. Neither are very exciting but, I wanted to show you that I was doing something for the holiday.

I wanted to buy a cute lepruchan stamp but, we just cannot spend for luxuries right now. So, I made due with what I had on hand. I have had the Irish Blessing for quite some time and never used it. So, I guess it was time!

I love the Irish people, their country and personalities Wayne and I were there in 2006 and have been wanting to go back again. But, the economy is preventing us from going just yet.
