OK people, I need help!

I have a really bad sinus infection, and I'm waiting for the nurse to call back to tell me if I need to come in or if they'll call something in. Anyway, my ears hurt and itch! Is there an at home remedy I can do for this? I'm going :crazy:

Denise --

I can tell you that the crowds increased exponentially on a daily basis from 12/17-12/25. We had no trouble at all doing things at the beginning of our trip and by the end it was very crowded. Still got things done... just took a lot longer.

That being said... we will still go back again Christmas week next year!

BTW -- I thought of you at MCO on Monday evening. There was a young couple with identical triplet boys in the security line. They had on Elmo sweatshirts and were as adorable as they could be!

Thanks, Elin. We are really debating when to go. We are even considering going over Thanksgiving so that we don't have to deal with my in-laws at ALL!~

This is one of my favorites:

YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

You wore that rainbow shirt that had half-sleeves, and a rainbow that went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.

You made baby chocolate cakes in Your Easy Bake Oven. You washed them down with snow cones from Your Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.
You owned a bicycle with a banana seat, handlebar streamers, and a basket.

You owned roller skates with metal wheels. (Maybe even the one's that attached over top of your shoes!)

You thought Gopher from The Love Boat was cute. (Admit it!)
You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

You had rubber boots for rainy/snowy days - remember Moon Boots?
(Then you advanced to Duck Shoes in the 80s.)

You had an orange Tupperware lunchbox, or a metal Muppets lunchbox with matching thermos.
You had either a "bowl cut" or a "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill". How traumatic when people thought that you were a boy.
Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon. (of course Nancy got it!! :rolleyes: )

You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple shredded outfits.

You spent hours out back on your metal swing set with the trapeze.

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really badly. You wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Olson!

You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink.

Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as who her friends; Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling, and Huckleberry Pie were.
You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

Every now and then "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.
You had Star Wars action figures.

It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

You had the "Wizard of Oz" doll set , too.

You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

You asked your Magic-8 Ball the question: "Who will I marry...Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"

You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.

You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn and Popsicle stick God's Eyes or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

You made Shrinky-Dinks!

You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club.

You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."

You thought Olivia Newton John's song, "Physical" was about aerobics. :rotfl:
You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.

I decided to bold everything that applied to me - and realized I really only need the Snoopy snow cone machine and Wizard of oz dolls!!!!

AMEN! I think I had all of it too!!! Especially the Dorothy Hammill haircut. I had the DH ice skating doll and rink too. She was cool!

Yes! Benjamin was chosen to be KING OF THE REALM! I swear my knees nearly buckled under me! :) (sad but true!)


DH and I had a bit of an argument on our first day at MK -- the day Ben was wearing his King Arthur shirt .... and we never made it over to the show. :( The second day we went, I was determined.

We went over about 10 minutes before the show. At first, Ben didn't want to. He was sad and said that Merlin never picks him and it makes him so sad. (what can you say to that!) Somehow, I convinced him to give it ONE more try.

This particular day, the three of us had on the bubble letter shirts that Kate created. When we got over there, Ben HAD to try to pull the sword out. Of course, no budge. I called him down. We had a quick talk about what I had learned here. I told him to be as still as he could. To watch the show - and enjoy it. :) Oh, and I HAD made a scrapbook page for Merlin!

OK ... so we handed Ben the clipboard with the Merlin page. I told him to hold it facing OUT. About halfway through the show, I took it from him (didn't want his hands to NOT be free). He was amazingly still throughout the show. (I have never seen him this still for this long!)

And then it was time to choose. My DH tried to point out Ben! I swiftly but discreetly pulled his hand down! And then he was PICKED!! I swear, my knees nearly buckled under me --- I was SO excited for him!!!!

Denise, you're back. How did it go?

Deb

Well all the prayers and PD worked! It went perfectly, and needless to say, DH and I were so relieved. Nothing was said, everyone was pleasant, the kids had a ball. The best part is we went to visit DH's grandmother (she has Alzheimer's) in the Assisted Living Home. They were all having a sing-along. Well my kids just jumped right in, did a "show" for all the people there, danced, did tumbling exercises. Then they all 3 proceeded to go around the room at least 3 times and give every single resident a huge hug and kiss, sit in their laps, etc. You have never seen a group of old people with bigger smiles and you could just feel the love exploding in that room. The kids had a blast and kept saying they loved playing with all the grandmas and grandpas. My DH was in heaven. It turned out to be a perfectly lovely day, and I am so grateful it did.

I hate to break it to you youngins... we wore them in the late 60s and early 70s in college.

I think TGM stinks. I tried it, didn't like and requested a refund. I was also expecting a more personalized plan. I didn't have strong feeling either way about it. Until, I received a NASTY :earseek: email from him :earboy2: I did get my money back though.

It amazes me how much we all differ on the sites we use and like and the informaiton we find useful or can't stand to use :)

I love TGM and have used him for 4 years, I think. His site is a little hard to navigate, I agree. But I have gotten much information from him that I have never heard before and have used it to our benefit numerous times. I have a friend who used it for the same trip once and HATED it. We both used the same info and I got more out of it than she did. To each his own...

Yes I did! It was wonderful! The chili dip sounds wonderful, too. I'm going to try that New Year's Eve. Hopefully I can trick the kids into celebrating a couple of hours early, so I'll have the house to myself for a while to try it. Sometimes you just need some down time, you know? DH has to work all the First Night activities, so I'll be on my lonesome for the evening. I need a yummy treat to drown my sorrows in. I'm going to try the chili dip and the frozen kisses. They sound yummy, too.

OK people, I need help!

I have a really bad sinus infection, and I'm waiting for the nurse to call back to tell me if I need to come in or if they'll call something in. Anyway, my ears hurt and itch! Is there an at home remedy I can do for this? I'm going :crazy:

That sounds like what was going on with me Christmas morning but mine progressed to severe pain in the right ear. I was at the emergency room for three hours X'mas morning. They gave me some drops to numb the ear. Mine are now back to itching and popping. It is driving me absoulutely insane. I can barely hear anything. Sure hope you get better sooner than I have. I did not have a sinus infection I had bronchitis so am also on an antibiotic. It has been four days and I do not feel any better except the ear pain is gone. GET WELL SOON.

Well all the prayers and PD worked! It went perfectly, and needless to say, DH and I were so relieved. Nothing was said, everyone was pleasant, the kids had a ball. The best part is we went to visit DH's grandmother (she has Alzheimer's) in the Assisted Living Home. They were all having a sing-along. Well my kids just jumped right in, did a "show" for all the people there, danced, did tumbling exercises. Then they all 3 proceeded to go around the room at least 3 times and give every single resident a huge hug and kiss, sit in their laps, etc. You have never seen a group of old people with bigger smiles and you could just feel the love exploding in that room. The kids had a blast and kept saying they loved playing with all the grandmas and grandpas. My DH was in heaven. It turned out to be a perfectly lovely day, and I am so grateful it did.
Another great example of how the :wizard: helps out.

Glad you all had a great day and I am sure the dear grandmas and grandpas will remember the day for a long time. That was so sweet of your children.

I don't watch GH anymore, but may have to check it out. How well did he age anyway?

Deb

I think he's still pretty cute, but not like before. I think it's more that my tastes have changed. I can't say he hasn't aged well.....since I hope no one will say that about me! I seem to be particularly sensitive about age since I'll turn 40 on my next birthday. I don't consider 40 old at all, it's just that I haven't seemed to have reached those goals I set for myself...

Yes! Benjamin was chosen to be KING OF THE REALM! I swear my knees nearly buckled under me! :) (sad but true!)


DH and I had a bit of an argument on our first day at MK -- the day Ben was wearing his King Arthur shirt .... and we never made it over to the show. :( The second day we went, I was determined.

We went over about 10 minutes before the show. At first, Ben didn't want to. He was sad and said that Merlin never picks him and it makes him so sad. (what can you say to that!) Somehow, I convinced him to give it ONE more try.

This particular day, the three of us had on the bubble letter shirts that Kate created. When we got over there, Ben HAD to try to pull the sword out. Of course, no budge. I called him down. We had a quick talk about what I had learned here. I told him to be as still as he could. To watch the show - and enjoy it. :) Oh, and I HAD made a scrapbook page for Merlin!

OK ... so we handed Ben the clipboard with the Merlin page. I told him to hold it facing OUT. About halfway through the show, I took it from him (didn't want his hands to NOT be free). He was amazingly still throughout the show. (I have never seen him this still for this long!)

And then it was time to choose. My DH tried to point out Ben! I swiftly but discreetly pulled his hand down! And then he was PICKED!! I swear, my knees nearly buckled under me --- I was SO excited for him!!!!
Nicholas was King of the Realm last year, on his 5th bday. It was so exciting for him, and for me too, so I know just how you all feel!

I am so happy that everything worked out for you. My grandmother, who passed away in July, had Alzheimer's and was in a home. All of the residents there would love when I would bring the kids in. It's like therapy for them.

I got the Imagineers Field Guide too! I love it. The photos and drawings are so neat to see. There are so many things about the MK that I would never have thought about. Now I'm sure that's all I will think about on our next trip! :)

I like the ones Skunka found for me ... but honestly would flip for copper ones ... or heavy duty ones (like Wilton makes with the rubber tops!).

No, I just got so tied up with Christmas and work that I didn't fully unpack from the Disney trip until I packed for Christmas. I'll get it out this weekend an mail it from work on Tuesday. I'll check the store in town to see what type they were. I don't think they were Wilton, but may have been heavy duty. I'll let you know.

Almost 4 years ago I started having problems with smells. At first I thought I was going crazy. Then I started getting migraines. It seems that for some people, they get migraines from some odors. So, Steffy and I would suffer together when shopping or going out to eat. Sneezing, coughing and just carrying on a lot. (thank goodness for protection) :rotfl: Going thru the smoking section at a restaurant we would hold our breath and practically run. She would wait outside a candle shop because it just really gets to her and if I smelled something, I would just tell her not to go there..

I can so relate to this....I am going to have to go home early from work today because my volunteer who runs the RISO machine(like a printer but uses barrels of ink and masters) to do the weekly bulletins, called in sick. I can handle the machine for a bit, but doing 550 bulletins and the innards...the smell got to me!! Add to that the other machines that I had to use that make noise and I have a lovely migraine!!

Here's pixie dust (the non smelly kind) for Steffy!!

OK ... one other highlight (I may even post an actual trip report one day ....)

OK ... I told you guys I had won a trip for 4 .. and then my neighbor and her family backed out, right? OK, well there are only 3 of us. One of the items I won were four 5 day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper tickets.

Now, I had this extra ticket and what to do with it??????

I had it with me all the time, but no sense giving it to someone in the park -- they already bought their tix. One night, I was headed over to Pop Century (buying Mr Potato Head!). I was following this couple with a little girl and I over heard part of their conversation. They were discussing buying park tickets and how many days etc.

I got up the nerve and jumped in and asked them how long they were planning to buy for. They were contemplating between 4 or 5 days. I told them that I knew this seems totally crazy, but I had a 5 day PH ticket for them. The wife looked at me like I head 4 heads. The guy asked me how much I wanted for it. I said no - I'm giving it to you. He replies - selling it? LOL

We were not getting very far!

I explained that I had won a big prize and I had an extra 5 day PH ticket which HAD to be used before 12/24/2005. I am NOT selling it -- I am giving it to you if you wanted it. They were still skeptical.

I pointed out that all the adult tickets had a biometric scan. *IF* the ticket had been used, you will not get into the park and will be right where you are before meeting me. But, I assured them, no one had used the ticket ... and they were welcome to it at no charge.

I still think they thought I had been sniffing something. :)

I had just left DH back at the hotel room (and of course we had just had yet another argument!) .... but I sure felt SO much better after that. I really *do* hope they ad no problems using it.

I swear, I was floating on air for the rest of the night.

So, is a runny nose corelated to a runny diaper? Man, Alyssa keeps having these runny explosions (5-6 times a day) and she's got a bad diaper rash now too. She's been a really picky eater lately, but any advice on what I can feed her to solidify things?

Sorry so gross,

Is she cutting teeth. Olivia had this problem for a couple of weeks. Try pedilyte or gatorade. stay away from the sugary Juices. Bananas are good for Diarrhea also white rice and toast. really anything bland. Dumb mommy realized we were cutting molars

Holy Cow!!!!! You guys will sure teach me not to go to the store, cook dinner, get 4 kids ready for bed, get the house picked up, watch a little T.V., catch up with a high school friend, etc., anymore. I woke up to over 60 pages! You chatterboxes!

I'll try to respond to what I can remember:

Denise - I'm so glad you're trip went well. It's no fun dreading time with the in-law's.

Kate - I don't know what's wrong with you, but I'm sending a lot of :wizard: in the hopes that it clears up soon. I'm praying it's not a kidney stone. If it is, you can contact me for sympathy. I just passed my 6th.

As for teenage crushes; my first was Parker Stevenson. I liked that he was the smartest of the Hardy Boys. From there, I progressed to Andy Gibb. After that, I can't really remember any standouts.

I do have a small claim to fame, though. Way back when, I did a lot of regional theater, and one of the actor's that I dated for a summer was a boy named Jamin Bratt. We had a great time together. I didn't think much of it as we drifted apart after the summer. Imagine my surprise, years later, to turn on the TV and see him in Law and Order. He was going by his full name Benjamin, now, but still as good looking as ever.

Was there anything else important that I didn't comment on?

Congratulations to those with upcoming trips. Welcome home to those who just got back. Clare - I'm enjoying your trip report. Please keep it coming. You, too Tammi.

Amy - I just love your sense of humor. You make me giggle. DH doesn't know quite what to make of the fact that I laugh at the computer.

Marti - You sound like a ton of fun! I certainly hope I get to meet all of you at some point.

Internet Movie Database. It's just imdb.com ... it's a phenomenal site! A bit of trivia from my dorky DH who listens to NPR too much:

It was originally started (15+ years ago) literally as a database. People in Hollywood would be able to access an actor, etc (which was fairly common) ... but also someone for lighting, etc based on works they had seen. This was the first of its kind to include crew, etc.... and now it's made public for us at home to further our movie knowledge :rotfl:

Seriously though. My husband and brother-in-law have been browsing since middle school and still are amazed. You can link to ANYONE who has ever been in movies or TV, both US and foreign. The only thing it lacks is broadway. It also has useful biographies, trivia information, etc for most people, depending on how popular they are. You can even look up movies where, say Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan starred together (or others that are much less frequent :rolleyes: )

Pretty cool stuff ... :rolleyes:

Well all the prayers and PD worked! It went perfectly, and needless to say, DH and I were so relieved. Nothing was said, everyone was pleasant, the kids had a ball. The best part is we went to visit DH's grandmother (she has Alzheimer's) in the Assisted Living Home. They were all having a sing-along. Well my kids just jumped right in, did a "show" for all the people there, danced, did tumbling exercises. Then they all 3 proceeded to go around the room at least 3 times and give every single resident a huge hug and kiss, sit in their laps, etc. You have never seen a group of old people with bigger smiles and you could just feel the love exploding in that room. The kids had a blast and kept saying they loved playing with all the grandmas and grandpas. My DH was in heaven. It turned out to be a perfectly lovely day, and I am so grateful it did.

I don't normally get carded for the normal type things. I tend to get carded if I buy spray paint or fat permanent markers. The funniest was when I bought about 10 cans of whipped topping in an aerosol can. It was about 2am and they carded me because there was some law about buying so much after a certain hour to prevent teens from huffing it.

And before all of you people's minds go in the gutter it was for an ice cream party for the marching band. Oh, wait that still sounds bad. uh nevermind.

When my sister was 16 or 17 she was "carded" for a sample of pizza being passed out at the grocery store. The lady handing out the samples wanted to know where her mother was and said that she needed her mother's permission to have the sample. My sister is a little bit of a smart aleck sometimes and offered to show her a driver's license instead. :smooth:

Glad to hear you had a good time. We loved the holiday Small World. The kids enjoyed it. My 2 older DS's , DH and I loved the Nightmare Before Christmas themed Haunted Mansion. It had so many neat details. We had sat for an hour one night in the hub and the FW got cancelled. We did catch them another night and the Electrical Parade. My DH lost DS,4 YO, after the FW. He ran off to chase the "snow" and DH lost sight of him. I was staying with the baby and other kids while DH went up and down Main Street. We found him 20 min. later but I was a wreck. I really snapped at DH. Thankfully, God watched over him and he was safe and sound. Was it too crowded Christmas? We heard it would be unbearable.

I don't know how bad it got. We were only there from 8a-11:30a or so on Christmas Eve and 8a-10a on Monday morning. DCA didn't seem too bad for the Electrical Parade on Christmas Eve. We got there at 7:35 for the 7:45 parade and the main hub in the front of the park was only 3-5 people deep. Main Street was pretty croweded for the FW that night (when it was cancelled), but then we never went farther than the hub so I fully expected it to be. As we left at noon-ish on Christmas Eve there was a very heavy stream of people coming in so it may very well have been pretty crowded. I would have loved to see HM Holiday as well, but we just didn't have time to get over there.

Please clarify. Uncle Jesse who one of you had a crush on and now another DDA's DD has a crush on: was that Uncle Jesse from Dukes of Hazzard or Uncle Jesse of Full House fame?

I read the first post when y'all were talking about 1970s crushes, so my mind immediately went to the Dukes Uncle Jesse and I was more than a little grossed out (sorry if that's actually who your crush was on). I didn't even think of John Stamos' portrayal of Uncle Jesse until the post about DD's crush some 30 pages later!

A day late and a dollar short since I missed the posting frenzy, but my very first celeb crush would have been Andy Gibb. Amy, I thought you and I were the same age. How can you consider yourself too young for him? :confused3 Now granted, I was maybe 8 at the time...

Okay, that is a funny thought! And now since it's been mentioned again, I have to add my celebrity crush - I LOVED Bo Duke. There's another that has stayed just as cute. Also Ralph Macchio (The Outsiders again) and C. Thomas Howell. (And yes, I am a little young for all of them at 29.) Nowadays, I'd have to say Vincent D'Onofrio and John Cusack.

Hi DDA Friends!!

Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy Hanukah to all!! I haven't been on DDA nor posted since before Thanksgiving. With the new home for our board, I hope I'm posting these photos in the right place!

Here are some photos of DBF and I in various designs on a couple of recent trips to WDW. A GREAT BIG THANK YOU!!!!!!!! to Kate, Denise and Kevin for their designs.

Here I am in one of Kate's designs for my birthday. The Mickey head says Jennifer. I'm standing at World of Disney wearing the Princess "santa" hat I eventually bought.
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a192/pinkmoonbeams/127ae05d.jpg

Here is DBF in the birthday design Kate made for him. He is at Coronado Springs next to a Christmas Village.
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a192/pinkmoonbeams/713368-R1-018-7A.jpg

Here I am in the "right pair of shoes can change your life" design from Kate. I wear this sweatshirt all the time, even around Dallas. Everyone loves it!! Castmembers stopped me all the time to read it and say "isn't that the truth!" In this photo, I am with the reindeer outside of the Grand Floridian.
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a192/pinkmoonbeams/713367-R1-012-4A.jpg

Here is my friend Jonette in a design Kevin customized for her. Since she has red hair, I asked him to give Cinderella red hair too! Jonette and Leif (that's him with her in the photo at Whispering Canyon restaurant at the Wilderness Lodge) are getting married in Epcot in 2006. Now that I have introduced her to custom t-shirt making, she is brimming with ideas for designs to make for her flower girls and ring bearer for the wedding. Some of the designers might hear from her with requests, or she might post her own new designs. She's usually on the wedding board. Rosiejo will know her as a fellow DFTW bride.
http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a192/pinkmoonbeams/02b0cb97.jpg

Santa brought me a digital camera for Christmas, so hopefully my future photos will be better quality and I'll be able to post them more quickly.

Talk to you soon!

Thanks, Elin. We are really debating when to go. We are even considering going over Thanksgiving so that we don't have to deal with my in-laws at ALL!~


Thanksgiving wasn't too bad, Denise. I was there Wednesday before through the week after. The holiday weekend was busy, but it was the only time my 9yo DSis was with us. We managed to do most of the things that we wanted to, even having some extra friends who slowed us down some. The week after, like your week, was great!

Nope! We're in EST as well... not Central until a little ways into Indiana. :goodvibes

Lots of us are EST (Virginia, New York, Ohio, etc). I know we have some Oregon residents..... they are the farthest west I can think of. Any California DDAs? They, too would be in PST. (Three hours behind us)

Here in Utah we are on Mountain Standard Time. It's just now almost 3:15 p.m.

Are you still friendly? Can you call him up and say something like "Hey Jamin, remember me? Me and a few other online friends would like to take you to lunch someday."?

I wish! That's one of the biggest problems with repertory theater; you get close to people for a very short period of time, and then you are gone from one another's lives. I'm sure he'd just say, "Glynis, who?" "You know, from your one summer with the Utah Shakespearean Festival?" "Hmm, that's too long ago for me to remember." At least that's how the conversation always goes in my head.

For anyone who's been to NYC and seen "The Lion King", I also dated Patrick Page who plays/ed Scar. But let's not go into that. Bad, bad memories.

Well all the prayers and PD worked! It went perfectly, and needless to say, DH and I were so relieved. Nothing was said, everyone was pleasant, the kids had a ball. The best part is we went to visit DH's grandmother (she has Alzheimer's) in the Assisted Living Home. They were all having a sing-along. Well my kids just jumped right in, did a "show" for all the people there, danced, did tumbling exercises. Then they all 3 proceeded to go around the room at least 3 times and give every single resident a huge hug and kiss, sit in their laps, etc. You have never seen a group of old people with bigger smiles and you could just feel the love exploding in that room. The kids had a blast and kept saying they loved playing with all the grandmas and grandpas. My DH was in heaven. It turned out to be a perfectly lovely day, and I am so grateful it did.

How sweet! I am sure that your kids really made everyone's day!! I am glad that everything went well with your MIL.

Go to the dr. now. Do not pass go, do not collect 200 dollars. Seriously, if it's an infection you could be on antibiotics for a few days before you leave which will help you feel better for your trip. If it's nothing bad, what are you out? Mostly time. At least you'll know.

That's just my opinion. I'm a paranoid mom, though, who takes her kids to the doctor a lot. I just know that it makes me feel better to have a professional opinion.

OK ... we'll go straight to the BEST moment!


http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c319/pxydust/merlin.jpg


Yes! Benjamin was chosen to be KING OF THE REALM! I swear my knees nearly buckled under me! :) (sad but true!)


DH and I had a bit of an argument on our first day at MK -- the day Ben was wearing his King Arthur shirt .... and we never made it over to the show. :( The second day we went, I was determined.

We went over about 10 minutes before the show. At first, Ben didn't want to. He was sad and said that Merlin never picks him and it makes him so sad. (what can you say to that!) Somehow, I convinced him to give it ONE more try.

This particular day, the three of us had on the bubble letter shirts that Kate created. When we got over there, Ben HAD to try to pull the sword out. Of course, no budge. I called him down. We had a quick talk about what I had learned here. I told him to be as still as he could. To watch the show - and enjoy it. :) Oh, and I HAD made a scrapbook page for Merlin!

OK ... so we handed Ben the clipboard with the Merlin page. I told him to hold it facing OUT. About halfway through the show, I took it from him (didn't want his hands to NOT be free). He was amazingly still throughout the show. (I have never seen him this still for this long!)

And then it was time to choose. My DH tried to point out Ben! I swiftly but discreetly pulled his hand down! And then he was PICKED!! I swear, my knees nearly buckled under me --- I was SO excited for him!!!!


Congratualtions to Ben, that is so neat.

Yep. I went to their wedding. It was very lovely. She is a very nice lady, and, I think, much too good for Patrick. I hope they're happy. I do know that he was not happy when she joined the cast of Chicago. He's very egomaniacal, and to have a successful wife would just about kill him. Of course he could have changed since we were together, but I doubt it.

I am so glad that it worked out so well for you. Perhaps since the kids had so much fun with all the grandmas and grandpas perhaps you could take them to a local nurisng home or somthing similar so they can share the love with some others who might not have families who visit them on a regular basis.

This is if your schedule would allow.

OK ... one other highlight (I may even post an actual trip report one day ....)

OK ... I told you guys I had won a trip for 4 .. and then my neighbor and her family backed out, right? OK, well there are only 3 of us. One of the items I won were four 5 day Magic Your Way with Park Hopper tickets.

Now, I had this extra ticket and what to do with it??????

I had it with me all the time, but no sense giving it to someone in the park -- they already bought their tix. One night, I was headed over to Pop Century (buying Mr Potato Head!). I was following this couple with a little girl and I over heard part of their conversation. They were discussing buying park tickets and how many days etc.

I got up the nerve and jumped in and asked them how long they were planning to buy for. They were contemplating between 4 or 5 days. I told them that I knew this seems totally crazy, but I had a 5 day PH ticket for them. The wife looked at me like I head 4 heads. The guy asked me how much I wanted for it. I said no - I'm giving it to you. He replies - selling it? LOL

We were not getting very far!

I explained that I had won a big prize and I had an extra 5 day PH ticket which HAD to be used before 12/24/2005. I am NOT selling it -- I am giving it to you if you wanted it. They were still skeptical.

I pointed out that all the adult tickets had a biometric scan. *IF* the ticket had been used, you will not get into the park and will be right where you are before meeting me. But, I assured them, no one had used the ticket ... and they were welcome to it at no charge.

I still think they thought I had been sniffing something. :)

I had just left DH back at the hotel room (and of course we had just had yet another argument!) .... but I sure felt SO much better after that. I really *do* hope they ad no problems using it.

I swear, I was floating on air for the rest of the night.

Very cool!!!! What a wonderful thing to do for that family.

Tia I'm a bit confused ......

Did you just go to WDW, come home, and re-pack and went to DL?????

Pretty much! :blush: We were in WDW from 11/23-12/4. Just before I left, DH's family felt bad that DD and I were gone for Thanksgiving (his choice to stay home) and invited him to CA to be with them. He got out of it by suggesting we all come for CA - not the plans. In the end, his mom ended up paying for our plane tickets in place of Christmas presents since they were more than we could afford, especially at the last minute. His family lives in Orange County (like DL). As usual, we were in town for 4 days and saw his family for about 6 hours on Christmas Day. We spend a lot of time with my best friend and her family, but still had our long (thank you jet lag) mornings free so we ended up doing 2 mornings at DL thanks to Christmas money from my grandma. I bought a 2-day ticket and then upgraded to an AP with blackout dates = cheaper. This trip was completely unplanned and we didn't even get our plane tickets until about 7-10 days before hand as we kept going back and forth on going as DH hates to travel.

Hello all - back from a great day of anniversary stuff! We started with a family outing to see Narnia. We loved it - it was a bit long and I was worried that DS (7) wouldn't sit through the whole thing, but he loved it even more! With the previews it was 2 1/2 hours long. AND we got there early, so he sat in that seat for quite a long time with no complaints!!!

Then we dropped him at a friends house and went for dinner. It was nice to have a quiet dinner without coloring first! And there were linen napkins - what a nice change.

For my Christmas gift this year I got a three piece luggage set from the Disney Store and my upcoming birthday trip - so not all DH pick out bad presents!!! Since he's on vacation this week, we're going out now for another family outing... talk to you later!! Maybe I can go on a posting frenzy and pass 1,000!!

I never really thought about it till now but that would make her Paige Page, what a great name combination. :rotfl: No wonder she goes by Paige Davis.

For anyone who's been to NYC and seen "The Lion King", I also dated Patrick Page who plays/ed Scar. But let's not go into that. Bad, bad memories.

Isn't he the one that married Paige Davis from Trading Spaces????


ETA: I should really catch up before looking like a real Dork!!!

12-29-2005, 05:24 PM
Yep. I went to their wedding. It was very lovely. She is a very nice lady, and, I think, much too good for Patrick. I hope they're happy. I do know that he was not happy when she joined the cast of Chicago. He's very egomaniacal, and to have a successful wife would just about kill him. Of course he could have changed since we were together, but I doubt it.

Wasn't that televised? Did I see you on tv??

Sorry...those were at POFQ, they got lumped into the Epcot pictures.

They were a hit with the talking characters. They loved seeing their pictures.

I am going on a very unexpected trip to Disney in 17 days :cool1: I have a very good mil story to tell :goodvibes My mil, her dh, bil & family have been planning a trip to Disney in Jan. I received a call today asking if I would like to go because mil's dh has decided not to go. Everything is paid for except my food! I am so excited :cheer2: Dh & the boys will stay home, so I will have a chance to view Disney in a different way. I will miss my boys not being with me, but I will get over it :) Dh is not a big Disney fan(I am working on him)but he knows I love Disney & he is very happy for me. I will also get to the chance to stay at different resorts, 3 nights at the Contemporary, 3 nights at the Boardwalk Villas, & 1 night at AKL. I am about ready to burst! I have only stayed at value resorts, so this is really a treat. Well the whole trip is, I think I am still in shock. I just had to share this with you all, oh I need to get planning! Look out Disney here I come.............

We really did. The kids did great. We had and ADR at LTT at 4:10. Went from there to a few rides, to Twas the Night, to rides, to Wishes, to rides, to parade, to rides. When we left it was after midnight. I can't believe they lasted all night!

That's how I told Phil that I was pregnant! I was at WDW with my DSis and her baby when I found out for sure. I bought Phil a pair of baby mouse ears and the lady embroidered "Baby (last name)" on it for me. They are so cute and are put away with her first "Terra" ears and her "First Haircut" ears.

Jennifer - maybe she snubbed you b./c she wasn't feeling well - or her DH was being crabby about meeting up with you -

It's really ok. I was just putting her in a frame of reference :rotfl: She's sort of just like that. Actually, my guess is her DH yelled at her :rolleyes:

That's good! I was beginning to think it was eaten by USPS!

I like the ones Skunka found for me ... but honestly would flip for copper ones ... or heavy duty ones (like Wilton makes with the rubber tops!).

Your welcome, next time I will try harder to find better ones for you. And that is Mr. Skunka to you.

Oh I doubt it. I try very hard to stay away from cameras. I spent most of my time inside the home (they were married at the home of some joint friends of ours) nursing twins. The twins were brand new, and I couldn't leave them alone that long without feeding. Love those girls, but they sure cut into my socializing at the wedding.

Did I not tell you guys? Sheesh, blonde brain. :teeth: Yep, we were in ASMo. We went to the parks and dh said he needed to go off by himself. He was gone practically all day. Turns out he got us the honeymoon suite at Polynesian, he had gone back to ASMo, gotten a change of clothes, toothbrushes, hairbrushes, etc. taken them back to Polynesian, then gone back to the parks to meet up with us. We knew his mom was going to watch the girls while we go to dinner that night. He said he couldn't get us into the Kona Cafe or Ohana for that night but he had connections at the Polynesian. :rolleyes: So we head over there and I thought he was taking me to the luau which I wasn't overly thrilled with. I hadn't heard really good things about it and it was kind of rainy. So we're half way to the luau place and he says "here's your room key". So we go walking into Tahiti (If I remember correctly) and he says, we're at the end of this hall. We keep walking by and I see King Kamehaha (or however that's spelled) Suites, Princess someoneorother Suites, and then our #4. He told me it was the honeymoon suite. :teeth: It had a king bed, whirpool tub, great bathroom, concierge (which we didn't really get to take advantage of at all except for getting morning reservations for Ohana). Anyway, we ordered room service, saw the Electric Water Pageant from our lanai, watched TV, then went to bed. Oh, the coolest thing was I walked in the room and there was a full sized Christmas tree in there. I just thought that was so cool. I have pics. I'll have to upload into photobucket when I get back. I need to leave for my birthday dinner. :)

He's always been awfully full of himself. He and Mindy (that's what she goes by IRL, Mindy Paige) met when they were both in the touring company of Beauty and the Beast. He was Lumiere and she was the feather duster. She is an incredibly funny lady. In fact, she would fit in here on the DIS, Patrick, not so much!

Last night I turned on HBO and I can now proudly proclaim that I am the last person in America to watch Titanic.

It was okay, but I really didn't get all the hype. Maybe one of those movies that plays better at the theatre than on the small screen. IMHO, Evita was very much that way. Great at the movies, not so good at home.
