Awesome now and then pictures. Its amazing how much the girls have grown (and grownup) in just 5 short years.

I'm not quite ready to start my new ptr, since things are still up in the air. Waiting is killing me! Hopefully we will get moving very quickly though.

Ohhh I love your then and now collection. What a difference a few years makes! Isn't it great that the girls continue to love Disney?

I'm looking forward to your PTR reveal!

As to your question about our 2014 plans...I'm looking at early June and mid-late August. I may also squeeze in F&W for the first time. Nothing is booked yet which is so unlike me but I'm trying to get my DH to go with me for at least one of those trips. We'll see.

Phew all caught up. And technically before it's over.
Oh my gosh...I never knew about your PP troubles. Thank goodness they got it straightened out! I would have been so upset.

I love it when you do Then and Nows....it is so much fun to see how the girls grow

Still here lurking! Funny, I had a big lump in my throat seeing you head back to reality- I was experiencing your pain of leaving the magic. Ya'll had an amazing trip (of course) and now we get to hop on board soon to your PTR-I am anxiously waiting! Loved the Now and Then's; your babies are growing up, they are so beautiful.

Thought of you as I shopped at my Super Target today; I did Whole Foods, Super Target, Costco and HEB, all this afternoon. I am going to have a funeral one day and another day a drive to Houston next week, which will have me busier than usual. Wanted to have a lot of errands done so I just dug in. I love my Super Target, but since they did a remodel they don't carry as much for some reason. A lot of the Archer Farms products disappeared. So, a stop to HEB was in order too.

I love the stockings. You are doing a beautiful job. I love decorating for Christmas; my tree never has a "theme" but it is overloaded with ornaments. I have bought each DS a special ornament each year, from the "1st Christmas" on, something that is significant in their life during the year, usually from a vacation. I love re-living memory trail with them. I actually found a bass clarinet and a trombone ornament for them from e-bay, for the instruments they play.

I will be stopping in when I can, hoping to see a PTR announced! Have a beautiful week. Enjoy your sewing!

So excited for you with the size 14 jeans! WAY TO GO!!! Losing weight is not an easy thing to do so I hope you are proud of yourself. I know Im proud of you!

So happy that you are still able to do Jimmy Johns together. How wonderful that you are able to still share!

I love the then and now photos. How neat that your girls have gotten to grow up in Disney.

I am so looking forward to your new PTR.

I guess I'll just kick back and wait...

Well...I guess I shall come back later!

I do love the Then and Now pictures! The girls have grown up so much. I can't wait to see more of these!
Hahaha... Well - it will give you all a reason to check in to my new PTR when I start it.

Yup - still working on super secret projects... I hope to have the next one done soon... I have a few things on my plate right now I am trying to finish up.

Thanks Kathy - I love doing this, but with each trip, it gets harder and harder to keep organized in my Photobucket account. LOL

Hi Suzi!!! Thanks for taking the time to catch up! Yah - I was pretty nervous there for a little while about our PP photos, but just glad it all worked out.

WOW!!! YOu got a lot done! I am not sure what's happening to your Archer Farms products - my only thought is that Target just released their "Simply Balanced" line - and I am wondering if that's supposed to ultimately replace AF? I know nothing - but it seems a lot of their products overlapped, and I wondered about it.

Thanks! Our tree is much the same as yours... no theme for us either - but each year I purchase an ornament that relates to our year... It is fun to reminisce.

Thank you... I still have so much further I would like to go, but it's nice to finally be able to get into some "normal" sizes... I still feel like I am busting out of them, but I am very close... Hopefully by Christmas?

Thank you! It is fun and bittersweet to watch... I only wish their first trip would have been earlier in their lives... Oh well. I am very happy we have the memories we do.

************************************************** ********

Yesterday was a great day!

The girls and I wound up at BFF's house - which was not the original plan for yesterday - those of you that are my friends on FB were inundated with pictures last night... Sorry about that. LOL But we had a good time!

I am only sharing one photo of the girls and I from yesterday... No worries, I will share more later - I have a plan.


Josh took MM hunting with his cousin and his cousin's friend. They didn't get any pheasant, but it sounds like they had a fun day.

Then, he was such a nice guy and made stuffed peppers for dinner last night - it was so yummy!

We all sat down and watched two more episodes of Season 3, Downton Abbey... I am getting more and more anxious for Season 4 to be released. The last episode we watched last night was not one of my favorites... So I am anxious to watch more, I hate ending it on a sad note. I am sure - those of you that watch this show, know the episode I am talking about - it's not the very last one, it's the *other* one. I don't want to give it away for those that haven't seen this show yet...

Today, I am back to bag making... I am very much looking foward to this week's theme!!! It is such a unique and fun one!! I will only be able to work on my stockings and my SSP in my spare time now... I don't have any more time scheduled off in my sewing room until the week of Thanksgiving.

I hope each of you has a wonderful day!

D~

I am just dying to start my new PTR... I have the intros all written in a Word doc. - so all I need to do is copy and paste...

I hope I can resist the urge to post it for the remainder of the week... I need to finish this TR first...
