Bed Head & "B"

Have you ever seen a happier bed head? And when we're at home, Chad can be found with his bear blanket affectionately known as "B" hanging out of his mouth.

Indiana, Here We Come!

The elusive letter of acceptance has finally arrived! Mark got an e-mail from Indiana University last week so we're going to dental school. What a relief to know that we've got somewhere to go next year. Mark shutters at the thought of having to study for the DAT and apply all over again. Fortunately, he shutter no more. Mark graduates from UVU in April and school will start at IU in July, so we'll be moving sometime in between. Mark heard recently from a professor that "you need to celebrate the victories in life," so we baked this cute little cake. Chad has also been heard chanting "Hoosiers" from his crib late at night. We're all celebrating.

Mary Turns 26 at the Happiest Place on Earth

These Bushman kids sure know how to party!  Here we are at the Animal Kingdom.  As we strolled along, we stopped to watch an African band perform.  Pretty soon they started pulling people from the crowd to get out and dance with them.  It being Mary's birthday, the rest of the family started pointing at her and much to her embarrassment, she got pulled out in front of everyone to join in the dancing.  Each time she thought they were done and started to walk away, the African musicians would pull her back.  The family got a kick out of it.  It's always fun watching one of our own get sucked into making a fool out of ourselves in front of a large audience. 
That night we all got together at Downtown Disney to eat dinner at the new T-Rex restaurant.  It was filled with moving dinosaurs that set the ambiance quite well.  Right before we left, we heard singing and clanking of some sort which was the workers coming with cake and ice cream, complete with a dry ice cup making the plate even more enticing.  What a fun and exciting birthday!

Walt Disney World

For Christmas this year the Bushman's flew all of us kids (minus grand-kids) out to sunny Florida for an extreme Disney Vacation.  We hit all the parks...Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  We had a blast!

"It's a great, big beautiful tomorrow!"

The sign said, "You will get may get soaked."  Well, they were right.
