Disney Bound


We are off to Disney World today for Oliver's Make-a-Wish trip.  We cannot believe the day has finally arrived.  He is going to have an incredible time.  Matt and I are so excited to watch him enjoy all that Disney has to offer.  Waverly is going to have a fantastic time, too.  I will try to update the blog a few times while we are down there, if time permits.  However, I am looking forward to taking a break from "real life" and simply making memories with my family.

Please continue to vote for Team Sanfilippo in the Pepsi Refresh Project.  We are still in 1st place, but in the past many teams have come from behind to win the grant in the last days and even hours.  What a thrill to find out on 2/1 that we won.  That would be the perfect addition to an already special week.

Thanks for all of your support.

Hi Shannon! I hope you are enjoying some wonderful family time in Disney! My sister Mary K met you on the plane today and then called me to tell me how much she enjoyed talking with you. I told my other sister Maureen about your meeting, and she said that she has been following your blog for a few years! What a small world! Hopefully we can meet some day soon. Wishing you all of the best! Ann Marie Fennelly

Hi Shannon, I have been following your story ever since Waverly was diagnosed and have commented a few times. I even submitted a logo design a while ago when you were doing a fundraiser. I had planned to call my sister Mary K to tell her you were going to be there this week for Oliver's Make-A-Wish trip. I have always wanted to meet your beautiful family - feel like I know them! Anyway, before I even had a chance to talk to Mary K, Ann told me that you met Mary K on the plane and sat next to her. It is truly a small world! I have been checking your blog for updates and am anxious to hear how the week goes while you are busy making memories :)

Hi Shannon,

We hope you are all having a wonderful time at Disney! Can't wait to read about it and see some pictures. We miss your blog entries this week and with the end of the Pepsi Refresh Project, it's like a double whammie. We'll be excited when you return to us in cyber-world! Hugs to you all, Joanne
