When we moved, the one and only thing we were sad about leaving was my parents. They are not as enamored of life in Florida as we are, so we now share a long distance relationship. My mom's birthday is the same day as Chris' and he came up with a spectacular idea to say happy birthday to my mom.
The vid is below and let's just say that the Disney cast members had a lot of fun with this one as did we!
Btw...the story behind the word "ma'ah". When our oldest was very little, she could not say grandma and grandpa, so she said mahpah. That quickly turned to ma'ah and became the word she used for my mom. so we had to come up with on for my Dad. One of our fav movies was "Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation" and in that movie, Jimmy Stewart is called "Boompa". So that became the word for Grandpa, We like the name, but are very thankful that our kids have much better behavior than the little boy in the movie who uses that name!

We lost everything and had to start over again, but we decided to do it with magic and style here in the most magical place on earth. We were scared to death. The destroyed economy made my "vanilla frosting" biz fall apart. You might ask what a vanilla frosting biz is. It is one defined as something people would love to do and should do bc it helps their kids to have a better future, but when the basics became hard to afford, the frosting was not attainable. We tried to use credit cards as a temporary fix to keep the only thing I knew how to do and had trained for my whole life floating, but the overhead was unsustainable and then the credit cards also became that way and so we fell. Lost it all. The house, the office, our lifestyle, which in retrospect now, we realize that although we were always happy together, we had gotten used to an unhealthy and boring lifestyle. That was all about to change thanks to our fall and amazing silver linings. The fall felt like I was letting go. Couldn't control anything anymore so I allowed myself, although terrified, to truly fall and see where G-d, life and fate wanted me/us to go. I allowed fate to see us through! I prayed a lot everyday that this fate would be a happy one.
