A Disney Christmas Fix - four days of fun! 1/28 Summer/Cruising PTR started!!
 
Greetings everyone! Welcome to my short and sweet (and sweet in MANY ways) Trip Report for my Holiday fun with the Mouse! :santa: This holiday season I spent three nights and four days with my DH Nov 29th - Dec 1st. There was nothing better to get me in the Christmas Spirit :goodvibes

We didn't bring our children since we were attending training in Florida immediately following our days in Disney, so it was a nice little adult getaway! I am sure you want to know who I am and who my DH is, especially if you have not read any of my Happy Dog vacations before...

So here we are....

This is ME, HappyDog. Who believes she is probably her happiest, Dog Happy, when she is at Disney World... :goodvibes This photo was taken at the Winterland/Summerland minature golf course in Disneyworld during our vacation... I have always told DH that when we retire we should get an airstream and tour around, and I regularly declare that I will work for Disney when I retire... And that I want to spend Christmas in Disney at Fort Wilderness one year... So he told me I should get my photo next to "my" motorhome!!! :laughing:

Here is a photo of DH on our summer trip to WDW this past June/July...

He is always finding the humor in things, and well this is one of those moments... :rolleyes1

A photo from that same trip to introduce you to our children, two boys, 8 and 5...

And a little more recently, on our Disneyland Halloween trip, just this past October. Some clowning around in Toontown...

Lastly, here are two photos of all of us. I chose these because though taken last year, they were taken at the exact same time of year that I was very excited to revisit... Christmas in Disneyworld :lovestruc

This was us on Christmas morning a year ago, so I guess it is an appropriate beginning for this short TR, to begin it on Christmas day this year!!!! :santa: That and the fact that the Christmas Parade made me very nostalgic and inspired me :laughing:..

I hope you don't mind that little recap of my family and a few of our recent trips. We have had the fortune of going to Disney more often than I would have expected the past few years, and fortunately for me, when we are not planning Disney fun, someone else IS here on the DIS!!! :goodvibes Perhaps this is why I love being a part of the DIS community, as well as for all the great DISers I have met here! :grouphug: I can always count on some great memories to share from MeMom, WigD, CP, EandEsmom, 2excited2sleep, JenJolt, LL, and MANY others! Links to all my PTRs and TRs are below but in the meantime, I hope you will join me and DH for some Pre-Christmas fun!!!

A lot has fallen already. It's a mess outside.
I drove right into it this morning on my way home from my brother's house in Maryland.

Did you get any snow?

A little Christmas at the Happy Dog House...
 
So before I start my TR photos from our short trip to WDW, I thought I would share our Disney Christmas tree with you and a few other festive photos!!! I have been buying Christmas ornaments each trip this year since last Christmas. I have collected all the Toy Story ornaments, and several Tink's, and some additional characters I am fond of... I have been posting them along the way, but I did buy a few more this quick trip. I was so excited to unwrap them all and hang them!!!

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/v...p/mvmcp435.jpg

So I figured I had to find SOMETHING to do with these Mickey Ear hats that I bought last year!!!

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/v...p/mvmcp436.jpg

I am also a big sugar cookie fan. Or at least I like making them!!! I have some "help".... This is DS5... DS8 said he was only the cookie taster.

WigD, notice the sillybands... he declared he wanted to wear all the Mr. Potato Heads....So...

Christmas Eve.. after Santa has come to drop off his goodies...

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/v...p/mvmcp451.jpg

Christmas morning chaos ensues... with glazed popems' hot chocolate and lattes ... can't get much better than that! :thumbsup2 The boys are wearing their Mickey flannel PJ's which I bought them last year. They really were big... I think they'll even get one more wear out of them, if you can believe it! I am glad to hear it! They are very cute...

Well both were just by chance -- things worked out! Here I was thinking I wouldn't get to go anytime soon and it just turned out we had a little luck :yay:

We didn't get any really, b/c we are too far north... there is snow falling all around us :laughing: oh well, We need snow when school is in session :laughing: Hope it isn't too bad for you. The boys would have loved playing in it, but we may go to a local ski resort here in PA not far from our home just to play and go sledding. :santa:

These look very familiar. :santa:
And they tasted very, well...tasty! :thumbsup2

Your house is awesome.
Places like that is why I watch HGTV and dream. ;)

Hope you all have a fabulous year ahead!

Native NYer 12-26-2010 07:49 PM

You are quite the baker! The only baking I ever do is take a trip to the local Italian pastry shop for assorted goodies and stop in Crumbs for some massive cupcakes.

Your Christmas trees are beautiful! Love the new light sabers.

You're very lucky. We're expected to get about 18''. I can't see the tires on the cars across the street. So, it's pretty bad. I just wished the storm would have waited until January 3rd :rolleyes1

Merry Christmas...a day late. So glad you got a quick trip in before business. Can't wait to hear all about it while I sit here with the snow outside in the south. NEed some Disney magic and warmth. Can't forget that all important TR :)

Charleston Princess 12-27-2010 06:44 AM

Hi, Happydog!!! You snuck in here and started your TR without warning us on your DL one. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! ;)

I am so excited to read about your Christmas trip! :yay: Love the picture with your motorhome! :laughing: Charles is always joking about wanting to get an RV when we are older. :lmao:

Your Disney Christmas tree looks awesome! I just love pulling out all our little touches of Disney around the holidays!

Your cookie helper is adorable, and I can attest to the fact that those cookies taste as good as they look! :goodvibes Which reminds me -- I think I need your recipe for the spice cookies. I commandeered that one for myself and loved it!

Christmas morning at your house bears a strong resemblance to Christmas morning at our house -- toys and wrapping paper. :laughing:
