The Purple Elephant

Ahnalin loves "The Purple Elephant!

I do too!

The "Purple Elephant" is a darling
chapter book that was written by my friend
Donna Gielow McFarland.

Ahnalin loves to read and
has been enjoying Donna's stories.

So Donna sent Ahnalin 
a copy of "The Purple Elephant"
to review. 

So here is Ahnalin's review: 

I think that the book Purple Elephant is a 
very funny book, 
because it is about going on 
adventuring and having fun.
My favorite parts were when the
purple elephant sits on a stack
of hay and the prince is under the hay
and my other favorite is when
they introduced Dianna the dragon. 

So there you have it. 
Ahnalin loves the Purple Elephant!

Ahnalin is 8 and loves
reading fantasy stories
with adventure.

The Purple Elephant fits perfectly
into her taste in reading.

The story is exciting 
and funny and 
the characters really
draw the reader into the story.


Donna, thank you 
so much for this book.
We can' wait to read
more about Prince Carmel
and his adventures!

Congratulations To My India!

Do you see this tiny little bug?

She was 3 years old,
on her very first visit to Disneyland.

She fell in love and said she wanted to 
live there when she grew up.

She is now this beautiful woman
who is so excited to be going back
for her second term of the Disney College Program!

India was a student in the Disney College Program
during the Spring and Summer of 2011.

She had the time of her life and learned so much.

India's favorite attraction of all time
is the Storybook Land Canal Boats.

Her dream came true when she was assigned
to the boats for her role in Disneyland.

And she was amazing in this role!

She adored her classes and
learning so much about the business
of show business.

She truly blossomed.

And now, India must
raise the money for her program fees
for this next semester of the Disney College Program.

We would be so grateful
for any help or support
so that India can realize her dream.

India has 8 days to raise
the funds for her fees
and we are still dealing with
Don's job search due to his lay off in July. 

Any amount would be such a blessing to our girl!

You can click on the "Go Fund Me" widget
and it will take you to India's fundraising page.

Thank you so much for celebrating with us.

And please keep our family in your prayers.

We are so grateful!
