Great then and now pictures. I guess I am a couple days behind on my commenting. Silly TR moves so fast it's hard to keep up!

I really like the pics of V witht he sun in her eyes on Dumbo! How funny that EVERY picture she has her hand over her eyes.

As for Test Track...HILARIOUS! You really don't appear to be enjoying yourselves on this most recent trip.

As usual...can't wait to read more...and see more pics of course. You can never have too many pictures!

Toddlers and extreme heat + overstimulation = random not planned pictures.

Thank you! I am glad you are enjoying my TR - it's sad that it's almost over, but I am very excited to be planning another trip. I hope you are able to collect a few Now n' Thens too - they are so fun to do!

Thanks! I hope you had an awesome day too! Yah - it's pretty sucky to have to drive in the winter - it wouldn't be too bad - but it's also at night and it's about 15 miles of back roads - it's down right trecherous sometimes.

I wish they would just sell the fabric!!
I have seen the fabric on Etsy - it's not cheap, but they do sell it occasionally. Personally - I don't like the fabrics they chose for the Vera Bradley Disney line - they are way too busy. But I have considered getting a nice wallet in one of the fabrics, since it's really difficult for me to make the bigger/more intricate wallets... I am not ever sure they made the one I'd want in that fabric though? I will have to look one of these days.

Yah - that's pretty much what I was thinking... So sad they wrecked that ride, it was a favorite.

I agree - I think it's because Alli did her eye makeup - usually V doesn't wear much makeup at all.

Still need to do my edits.
Yay!!! SO happy they found your pictures!! What a relief!

Thanks Kathy! Yah - I am just so disappointed that we didn't get much done at all this trip... I think, for our next trip - we will "splurge" and do park hoppers and tour Disney in a whole different way... As in... Emh mornings and nights... LOL Then maybe we will get to enjoy the parks.

Thanks! Sorry my TR moves so fast... That's mostly my fault - I've been anxious to start my new PTR since I got home. LOL I know - aren't those Dumbo now n' thens crazy??? They are my favorites! We did not like the new Test Track at all... It has been removed from our Must Do list... So sad.

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

I managed to make it home from town yesterday at about the time I thought I would. I still wished it would have been sooner, but oh well.

I also had to run to the meat market to pick up our ground beef order, but then I was stuck there because I got caught up chatting with a friend of mine that works there... It was good to see her though - as I don't think I had seen her all summer.

Then I came home and worked on the applique for my next bag... I finished it just as the girls walked in the door from school... I am very happy with it and very happy with the bag in general. I cannot wait to show you all!

We watched 2 more episodes of Season 3 Downton Abbey last night - only 2 more episodes to go... So sad... I've heard reviews about Season 4, they are showing it in Europe now... and I've heard it's not as good... That will make me even more sad. I hope they are wrong.

I work at Target today - so no sewing room.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Love the last set of now and then photos. Epcot is the worst in the heat with all the pavement.

I also read some bad reviews about season 4. I have awhile before I will be able to watch season 3.

The holiday season will be in full swing soon! Your target shifts will be whizzing by before you know it.

Last but not least...

The final picture of Victoria's pillowcase...

The lighting isn't the best - as she took it in the darkest corner of her bedroom - not to mention, she just pulled the crumpled mess out of her suitcase and photographed it with out ironing...

pillow case.

Maybe she was afraid to iron it and mess up the signatures.......ok trying to give her a break. It is such a cute idea!

The Goofy hat brings back fond memories. Our youngest daughter had to wear her Goofy hat every day of our trip when she was four years old. It was so cute.

I love the pillow case. The signatures turned out really well, especially considering that some of those characters can hardly see out of their costumes or have only three fingers.

Such fabulous now and then photos! She got SO MANY autographs on that pillowcase!!! I had considered doing a pillow case for the cruise, but I amafraid there won't be enough characters on board to fill the case completely. I think I have settled on doing a photo mat instead. We shall see. With it being a year way, I could change my mind a hundred times.

I think I'm going to have to make some pillowcases for some special kids to take on their next trip to WDW!.

V's turned out really great. I like the idea of the autograph pillowcase more than an autograph book that might just sit on a shelf and gather dust.

So sad this TR is over, but I know that a new PTR will be starting soon!
