Just wanted to thank the Tubos, DeLeones and Crawfords for letting us tag along on your great Disney Adventure! We had such a wonderful time! A special thank you to Joey for letting us benefit from his "magic move to the front of the line button"! We are now spoiled and will not know how to wait in a line without whining and talking about the summer we did not have to wait in line! A special thank you to Gina for giving Hallie the courage to go on her very first roller coaster ride, and what a ride "Splash Mountain", not to mention "Space Mountain"! I never would have been able to talk her into that one! If anyone out there needs a vacation coordinator, I highly recommend Lisa, anyone who can get 17 people to agree on going on the same ride at one time is pretty incredible in my book! I cannot end this e-mail without mentioning that whenever I may feel a little down and blue, I just have to think of MaryAnn coming down the water slide at Joey's hotel, that would put a smile on Grumpy's face! Thank you all for the memories! Of course what made it all worthwhile is knowing that Joey is healthy once again and seeing the joy not only on his face but on Laura, Jeff, Gina, Lisa, Tony, Ben, Nick, Lizzie, Bob and MaryAnn's faces as they watched Joey enjoying life! That was the "real" magic! Love and miss you all, Karen

: Home sweet home! We had a great time, but it is great to be home. We are all pretty wasted today. Joey is busy right now in his playroom revisiting all of his toys. I am still in my pj's, and I don't feel the need to get dressed anytime soon. Gina is doing what all summer vacationers should do, NOTHING, in front of the TV. We will spend the day regrouping before meeting up with the Flahertys for the much anticipated wedding of Ian and Jen! Speaking of Flahertys, here is a little vacation story you will all enjoy. We were on Day 2 of Disney at MGM Studios. Many of us were busy riding the Rockin Roller Coaster, so I took Joey into a store to keep him cool and occupied. We were looking at a full wall of hats when Joey said, "I want THAT one!" It was a Stitch hat. Now, there were at least 30 hats on this wall, and I wanted to occupy a little more time, so I said, "Are you SURE you want THAT hat? There are lots of hats!" Joey said in very definite terms, "Mom! I am SURE! I WANT THAT HAT!" So, we bought it. Now, Stitch is looking really cool surfing on this hat, but the amazing part of the hat is hidden on the side of the brim because it is there where you find the words, "Hang Loose!" Something told us that a very special angel was watching over us on our trip. And, I am sure he will be with us all tomorrow as we continue to celebrate as a family how precious this life is. Joey said on the plane, "Mommy, how many days until we go back to Disney World?" Well, we won't be making a paper chain to count that down anytime soon. But, we will be "remembering the MAGIC" for a very long time.
