Your giraffe pics are beautiful! he never got close to us, in fact he tried to blend right into the trees.




Kadence thinks this is a great picture!
OH no! Really. I hadn't heard the actual day it went up. I guess I had good luck then too. I was excited to see the park decorated. It did make it a newer experience for us.
I got some decent Giraffe pictures on the 11th too I believe. I usually can't get them very well, so I was happy.

Those two can be pretty crazy together at times.

Right there, that look, makes it worth it to go to Disney! Beautiful!

Again, I'm so jealous I missed all the Christmas stuff by one day! UGH We didn't stay for the parade on the 7th, but it was starting as we left for dinner, and there wasn't any Christmas decor in the first couple floats.




I was in Epcot that day and it was crowded, but it was getting worse as the afternoon/night started. It was the craziest crowds I've ever seen. We had Garden Grill at 5pm and because of the crowd we decided to skip illuminations.
I think Claire got the braveness from being with Alexis. Most likely if i took her alone first, she would probably tell me never again too.

Abby was so darn cute in that picture. Totally made it worth it to see her whith eyes of wonder.

I had heard we had the first day of the Christmas parade, but I wasn't 100% sure it was. I was excited we did get to see that too.

Epcot was insane that night. Especially when we first entered. Just pur craziness trying to even walk.

Yay for both your purchase and Claire's! Sounds like you were two happy young ladies.

Every time that we have eaten at T-Rex, there have been line issues. You'd think that they would be more clearly marked. We love it there though so I guess we'll continue to grumble about it but still go.
Yes you can share pins, but they have become more strict this year. You must be at the same resort now and in years past that wasn't the case. Your dates have to overlap and they tell you on the phone that the pin holder has to be available at check in, but so far that has never been the actual case once you go to check in, but they can ask, I just never heard of anyone getting asked yet. They may be enforcining this now too since they made changes to it. They do have to have a reservation though and then you link them.
We were both excited about our new "toys".
We really loved T-Rex. I was so glad, because Claire was worried about being scared of the dino's, but she had a fun time. She already said she hopes we go again next trip.

I'm glad she joined the parade, Kadence is a hesitater to stuff like that too, but she really surprised us this time around too.


LOL at re-tasting it the rest of the night. I hate that!


Tim was very nice when we ran into him too! Too bad it was just him in the tiny hallway and we weren't able to meet the family.
I thought I spied them in Epcot that day but I we were heading to our ADR and didn't want to be late.

Nov 9th! We meet again!
Sometimes I have to give Claire an extra push. I was glad she did it.
That is good food, but it will come back up on you over and over and over.....
So you saw Tim on the 8th then again?
He was really nice. It was like we have known each other for years...we we kind of have in a way.

I really enjoyed T-rex. It was one of the best meals we had on this trip.

OK, Claire just won Bravest person of the year from Kadence. TOT is the one ride (beside RNRC) that Kadence is refusing to do. On the other hand, Kadence is loving all the funny faces pictures Claire and her cousin are doing. She says they are the best ones.





Oh Man! Do I remember that! I was imagining you with word bubbles above your head with very bad words! Kadence was so worried for Claire, and was very happy to save a seat for her.
I found all the deluxe buses to be very maddening!
it was quite a walk, but the boats aren't really fast either. It's a shame that you are so close but you still can't get there any faster than taking a bus to a park...well if the bus arrives on time.
Well she only did it once. I kind of want to go through the chicken exit now too.
I was so glad to have you to vent too and to tell them we were on our way. If I was smart, I would've just grabbed a taxi. much fater and well worth the money for that.

It was so wonderful to meet you. I wish we had more time to spend together. i wish we had more time there period!
I am so glad they got smart and put photopass in there now. it really does make a difference for the parents.
I wish we could've spent more time too. I think Claire was being pulled in all directions. So many people she wanted to hang with and not enough time to do it all. Ideally we were going to go to MK after the party, but that didn't happen, but we still had a good evening.
We have drop dead gorgeous children....if I do say so myself!

I loved to read about your shopping trip to DTD. And it was nice to see to see the inside of the T-Rex restaurant. We have never been there, so that was pretty interesting. Thanks for all the pics!

Okay, I am home now ...... if you have any more updates, fire away.
LOL...Sorry. I am trying to get this done...eventually. I still have quite a ways to go yet. But getting there. And now I am working on my other TR as well, so I have decided I am pure crazy. But if all goes well, I am going to try and do something this fall in the way of a possible girls trip, so it's best to get these both going and as close to done as I can.
I think I actually posted a picture to you and Tom's facebook page when I bought it and you never answered. It might not have posted, as my phone sometimes is funky. I do have a picture somewhere a long the line though. I lvoe it. I really think it's my favorite of all my Dooney's.
I was trying to share my excitement and you were one I thought of. I think I shared with Janet, who was happy, but she is not into Dooney's so I couldn't get the full joy of it from her...and Tim...who probably could've cared less.

She is just the worst waitress. I seem to be a magnet for these type of things.
The food was good for us though. the girls enjoyed it. Sadly Claire had crablegs a few months ago and go sick with the flu the next day and now she never wants to eat them again.
That chair is fun. I need a picture of me in it.

Even though I'm not a fan of dinosaurs AT ALL, I have to admit that T-Rex looks so cool!
I did take a picture. I think the next day is when I did it. I haven't gotten that far in my editing, but I know I saw it in there somewhere.
T-Rex is just a neat atmosphere. We had a good time there and good food.

I really liked your inside tour of the Beach Club. Very peaceful and relaxing looking.

We stopped and chatted for a little bit and of course Claire and Kadence had to make up for lost time and chattered away.



A no Way Jose with Vanilla ice-cream. Yep, we went with a healthy option! This is one of my favorite foods in the entire world.




I loved how we were sitting in the kiddie chairs waiting to be called when you walked by! The lobby was so full, and a huge family grouping had just been taking pictures about 5 mins before you walked in. That morning we waited the longest for an ADR that I can remember, more than 15 almost 20 before I asked about it, I'd seen people get called that showed up after us. They forgot to put us in the beeper queue! Another 10 mins we finally got in.

I NEED a No Way Hose!

The Magic Kingdom was all decked out in Christmas dťcor. It was amazing. Just a week before I had been here and it was all decorated for Halloween and within a few days they totally transformed the park. Amazing!

That's exactly how I felt! I had thought Halloween was pretty neat, but Christmas just blew me away. I think I will forever want to go back at Christmas time from now on!

Your PP pics are wonderful!

Oh Jen! Claire's dress is just gorgeous! Kadence is all bug eyed right now, asking me if she can get a new dress for BBB. I can't wait to see the finished product!

This is one of my all time favorite pictures from that trip. With the placement of Tink it looks like she was mad at her and telling her to scram.

I love this picture! Kadence is LOL'ing right now at it! You should just win any contest it is a part of!

Beach Club is pretty, but not my favorite resort. Too many transportation issues for me.

Claire can be such a sweet girl at times....not!

We were so happy to run into you again. I think if I let Claire, she would've stayed with you guys. Thats awful you had to wait so long. I remember you saying you had already waited quite awhile and I was surprised to see you as I figured you would be seated when we walked by.

You HAVE to get to Beaches and Cream!

I would be happy to always go at Christmas time. Well I think the best thing would be to hit it once per season...maybe every 2 months?

Yes, Abby is a fireball all right. lots of personality and spunk and a mind of her own.
We got the dress at cracker barrel and it was really cheap, like $10 I think. Maybe 420 at the most.

That will always be a favorite picture of ours.

You know she will pick red....or even pink. It's just how it goes. I liked Claire's blonde due last year best, but what do I know about style? Or hair? The cosmetology license I have means nothing!!!!!

All the girls looks so beautiful at their photo shoot! The only thing I don't like is the couch pattern and floor. LOL
In the DTD set the couch is white leather and floor blends in with the backdrop. It just looks better to me.

I've been toying with dinner at Ohana, but so far no one's sold it too me. I know John and Kadence wouldn't be happy with the selection.

Ahhh.... but do you have your own private can of frosting like Frankie? I feel like Frankie more than I care to admit! Although I didn't enjoy this past season as much as some of the earlier ones. The Mother's Day episodes were AWESOME and I still watch them from time to time when I feel like just laughing at life.
No secret frosting, but I do have a stash of peanut M&M's that no one knows about!

I just watched one last week about Frankie all in a tizzy about Sue's facebook and making several fake profiles and friending Sue. NUTSO!!

I think you go the hang of shooting fireworks! You are going to get great shots the next time you are in Disney!

Thank Goodness eh!


I proceeded over to AoA to get us checked in and drop off some of our bags. I texted Carey to let her know I was on my way as well. She had texted me the day before and told me they would give us their light up necklaces they had used during the Christmas party, so we planned to meet up one last time and I could get those and say good bye as well because she was heading home today.

I didn't wanna go home!!

I then made my way over to meet up with Carey. Carey was in the LM section as well and she said she was about as far back as you could get. They originally had a closer room but when they went inside it just had a king bed, which wouldnít work for the 3 of them, so they were moved.
Kadence was in tow and a little disappointed that Claire wasnít with me. I let her know she missed her, but I had to let her sleep in a bit as we have been so busy.
We chatted a bit and Carey gave me the lay of the land. It was really neat to see the resort in person and I planned to tour around later in the day.

We said our final good byes and I headed back to the Beach Club.

Kadence wanted to stay longer, she even asked if you could plan that for us, but I sadly told her no.

We headed over and YES! I found a style I liked. I was so excited. I snatched it up.
Nice deal on the Dooney! Pics?





And with that, I'm CAUGHT UP!!!!

In the DTD set the couch is white leather and floor blends in with the backdrop. It just looks better to me.

I've been toying with dinner at Ohana, but so far no one's sold it too me. I know John and Kadence wouldn't be happy with the selection.





No secret frosting, but I do have a stash of peanut M&M's that no one knows about!

I just watched one last week about Frankie all in a tizzy about Sue's facebook and making several fake profiles and friending Sue. NUTSO!!
I guess I never noticed that DTD had a different chair. One day I would like to get it done there for her too.

Ohana isn't bad, but just not our taste.

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well, and then the loud race events.


Oh, and the Demon Abby story had me laughing my butt off! We got that Mickey bucket at MVMCP and I will beat anyone who touches it!
It is a wonderful feeling. and I didn't feel bad just sitting there not riding stuff. It was peaceful

Abby definitely was possessed at least a little bit.

Thanks. Well that means I have to haul the tripod in and I still don't know if I want to do that. LOL

It wasn’t too long and our appetizers arrived. The nice thing with deluxe dining is the inclusion of appetizers. I loved when the old regular plan included that and the tip as well.
There were so many wonderful options to choose from. I had a hard time deciding, but when it came down to it, I knew I would be sharing with Claire. If I ate a whole appetizer myself, I was going to be beyond stuffed, which seemed to be the theme lately as it was.
I went with the one option on the menu that I knew Claire would like. The Melalosaurus Mozzarella - Seared Mozzarella with creamy marinara and Mozzarella fingers.



This bar far was not my favorite choice, but I do like mozzarella sticks. They just had a lot of other good options too, none of which Claire would probably eat or try.
Claire was more than happy with this and she gobbled down several. I enjoyed them too.

After we enjoyed out appetizer our main course arrived. Claire went with the Rocksy's Pasta - Tossed with Alfredo.



Claire LOVES alfredo and this was a hit with her.

You can see her Lego bag on the table behind her meal picture. She was talking nonstop about her new Lego sets. She could hardly wait to get back to the room and start playing.
I am having a hard time remembering what mine was called, but I believe I got the Tyrannosaurus T-Bone - Charbroiled certifed Angus Beef T-bone steak topped with steak butter and served with red skinned garlic mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. I don’t see veggies on my plate, but perhaps they are on the other side of my steak.



This was VERY good. I devoured the plate.

Soon it was time to decide on dessert. Claire’s decision was easy for her. She got the Saber-tooth Sundae - A chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Though she really didn’t eat a lot of it and we took the cookie with us.



Nothing was jumping out at me. I was actually pretty full, but since dessert came with the meal, I was bound and determine to get something and take at least a few bites.

What I really wanted was the Chocolate Extinction - A gigantic portion of chocolate fudge cake served with ice cream, fresh whipped cream drizzled with fudge and caramel sauces and sprinkled with Butterfinger crumbs. BUT that serves 2 and only being one adult on the plan, we could not get that option without paying out of pocket.
So I just decided to get the Ice Age Indulgence - Layers of ice cream sandwiches, fudge sauce, whipped cream and Heath Bar Crunch. I don’t even know why I decided to order this as I really don’t like Heath at all, but I think the ice-cream and fudge parts were waving at me.



I took a bite…..mmmmmmmm. This was WONDERFUL!!!!!!
I think I ate close to every bite on the plate. There went the plan of only taking a bite or 2. And yes, now I was stuffed to the max.

We finished up and grabbed our bags and headed out. I will tell you this was one of our favorite meals of the whole trip. We plan to go back next year. I am thinking this would be a great place to go on our arrival day …… that is if we get decent flight times.











We had planned to head back to AoA pretty much right away after lunch, but while eating we got a message from Tim. He said he and the family were heading over to DTD now and we could meet up again. So Claire and I decided to hang out a little longer and wait and see if they made it.

The festival of the Masters was going on as well. This is basically an art type of festival. So we wandered around a bit and looked at some things.



I think this looks creepy. It’s advertising to make a princess with your child’s face. But the model ones were creepy looking in my opinion.





It’s amazing the talent these people have. These done with chalk (I think) on the sidewalks.



I liked this doll display, but didn’t get a very good picture of it.





We then headed over to the toy store. Claire decided she wanted to get more potato head parts so we filled a box up with many parts and accessories and paid for that.

I think about this time Tim let me know that they were circling the parking lot looking for a spot to park. I think Mel had gone shopping and he had the kids sleeping in the car with him, so he was just going to keep driving around.
We decided then to head out, but we had one more stop to make.





No, it wasn’t the Christmas tree or Earl of Sandwich.



But you know me; I like to take pictures as I walk along.
