Awesome! Good luck. We're all counting on you.

When do we get to accuse you of being a KGB spy?

I remember turning to DW while we were up on the sky carts and saying "this is on par with the way Disney does things". Really well done. They even had Disney pricing... a cup of Starbucks coffee with a dash of Kahlua... $6.99 Want a Bud Light? $6.99 The kicker is the fact that one can see the brewery right through the woods! Crazy.

Definitely sounds like Disney prices. Pay extra for those "special" events not included with annual admission and $7 for a coffee. At least it sounds like they did a good job of entertaining you. We';; have to check it out if we are ever in the area around Christmas time. Did they offer you hot cocoa and stale cookies? If not, Disney still wins.

Wait......I thought we were learning French? Now I have to learn Russian. Doh!

Seriously, good luck on Sunday. I'm sure it is a busy time.

We are doing Disney on Ice right after Christmas (tickets are a gift for DD). We always take a 25 minute train ride into Boston, watch the show and then a nice dinner just the two of us. They do a great job with the shows. We are at ice-side this year.

We may end up going in for a show as well. DD always enjoys those quite a bit.

You also need to investigate and track the Canadian penguin movement. We heard they have already infiltrated Maine!

You can report back to Norm on your findings. I'm not sure what animals he has in Kentucky, but I hear he is mobilizing a resistance force.

The mustard based dipping sauce they have is killer.

Very cool Chris. She thinks she knows how lucky she is but she has no idea how lucky she will be to be part of your family.

Taking the Pirate Princess to school, I drove over their damn bridge twice. Both times they were working on it and I can tell you their only secret is to use duct tape. Maybe some baling wire but couldn't be sure.

I'm imagining Norm has some sort of Jackalope

Bummer here's to hoping you find someone else or her current relationship terminates in a spectacular ball of fail that leaves her eager for a nice disdad.
