I agree with you Jen the castle at Christmas time is so beautiful. You can never have too many pictures of it in all of its' Chirstmas lights.

I'm behind on everyone's TR, so my comments will be short. I agree with you, I think the greenish blue castle with the Dream Lights is the prettiest. But really, all of them are gorgeous.

LOL @ crazy Abby. I'm sure you were glad to only get to hear the story afterwards and not have to live it.

The photos were stunning. I am sorry that you felt unwell. What the shame that the noise from the race kept you awake.

COP is one of my faves. I did get stuck once. It is weird seeing a scene twice. Some find it a place to nap.
Beautiful night pics.
LOL her eyes were glowing.
Loved all the Christmas decoration pics.

Like I said on facebook, Kona's is very, very good. Just by comparing your pics and description from Ohana's to Kona's, the food at Kona's even LOOKS way more appetizing! And you probably have a bigger selection too. I got a bacon cheese hamburger with a special mayo sauce on it and it was delicious! But I'm sure if you're unsure of the sauce, they'll put it on the side. The desserts were amazing too. I got a chocolate lava cake thing...I'd so get it again! Hopefully you'll be able to try Kona's one day (we did lunch) and enjoy it better

Seeing your niece do well at BBB makes me hope that my Cady would do well there too. She'll be almost 3 or 3 when we go again and I'd like her to experience it at least once. Cady loves wearing Claire's old Minnie Mouse costume I bought from you. It's still kind of big for her, but she worn it the past couple trips and is so adorable in it

I cannot believe it was that loud though! I have started bringing ear plugs on vacation with me. Two of my last three trips I have traveled with chronic snorers, not sure what is worse, loud music or loud snoring!
Yes, they seemed to have a different race each day or night, but this was the only night we had issues. I do believe this was the half marathon night. You ran it, didn't you?
I probably would take this over a loud snorer though. This was only 1 night!

It's just so pretty ....and magical.
Abby is a wild thing. She gets in trouble at day care and it cracks me up. One time she got in trouble for eating out of the garbage. She had lunch, but I guess the food in there looked better. Gail was so embarrassed.

It really sucked feeling ill. I am glad it wasn't any worse...been there and done that many years ago with my older 2. We had a Disney/Universal trip and on our Universal day I got super sick. So sick that I ran to the bathroom and threw up there. (I wonder how many people can brag they trhew up at Universal Studios. ). Luckily my Mom was with me on that trip. They took me back to the hotel and then the 3 of them went back to the park and had a great time and I selpt all day long. I was able to do some stuff at Disney the next day, but we only had a 1/2 day and then we left to drive home. I was still week and my poor mom drove most of the way home.

I have to admit, it is starting to grow on me more. Not a favorite, but it is a nice spot to cool off and really not THAT bad.

So many people are telling me Kona is better. I need to fit it in sometime. I really want to do it with Skip, so we need to get him on board for a trip in the near future.
I am so happy she is enjoying that dress. I loved it, and I hate selling any dress, but what the heck will I do with a closet full of too small dresses. Mary Poppins is too small now, but I am holding on for now. Just in case I have a grand child, or Abby goes when she is an age to fit it.

I ran the 5K. It was only my second race after knee surgery (second in a week actually lol), so there was no way I would be ready to run 13 at that point. I am running it this year, trying to get the coast to coast medal! I somehow conned my sister into running Disneyland with me Labor day weekend. I think she agreed because I said she would get a medal and Id buy her a park ticket lol.

You are a brave girl! I'm glad you made up your mind to do it though and got through it!
Heck I hate running, but if you bought my ticket, I would even think about it. LOL

OMG Jen. I am still cracking up over Abby's possession! Too freaking funny. Is she still obsessed with the Mickey popcorn holder?

I absolutely love your night time pictures. They are so clear and perfect, especially the tea cup pictures.

Ugh to the race announcer. I would HATE that. Next time - ear plugs!

I hope you feel better in the morning. It stinks to be getting sick on vacation.

Thanks. I have pretty good night pictures and some really bad ones too.

While the internet was out, I had extra time on my hands so I edited many non vacation pictures that were piling up. (I also did quite a few vacation pictures as well)

I thought I would share my fireworks shots. These are just the ones we did at my parents house. It's hard for me to get them framed just right, because basically I would have to stand in the cornfield next to the house to be far enough back to catch it all. So with knowledge that I am not willing to do that and this is just for fun and practice, this is what i took.
