SEPTEMBER 29, 2012: “SURPRISE! It’s Mouse Ears!” …


This is the moment we had been hoping for, waiting for, working for, and praying for, and was actually a complete surprise for Bug this morning when woke her up to a fully packed suitcase and a trip to the airport wherein we blindfolded her upon arrival so she wouldn’t be able to figure out where we were going. Until, that is, we boarded the plane and the amazing flight attendant who we’d made our partner in this crime showed up at our seats and handed her THE GOLDEN MOUSE EARS! It was one of THE most unbelievable moments of all our lives!

We planned it for this week to celebrate both our birthdays, but I actually managed to surprise him with a secondary excursion down to Tangelo Park so we could scratch off one of his Bucket List items … HE WANTED TO SWIM WITH DOLPHINS!

A very special thanks to both my mom and sister and “the man who raised my husband”, Rick Scauzillo. Without all of your true generosity we wouldn’t have been able to do this. We are overwhelmed and blessed!
