Well, my ticker offically says one month.. kind of... so I feel ready to start nailing down some plans, sharing some insight into the trip, and striking up some conversations with the most Disney-fied group of online friends! Everyone ready?

Let me begin by sharing some pictures... because I LOVE looking at everyone's pictures, don't you?

Here is my family...

This was taken Labor Day weekend of 07. For those of you joining me after reading that TR... welcome back! So glad I didn't bore you away!!

I'll give more details about them in the next episode!!
DH and I are officially Disney obsessed... we love everything about Disney, and the standards they set for themselves...

If you've seen these pics already, sorry!

Here is our bedroom... don't worry.. it's safe


and some other random Disney-ness



And, in honor of the upcoming holidays, some of our Christmas Disney!

Yes, our neighbors think we are crazy and that we worship false idols.... guilty, I guess!
Here's the wreath with the lights on... well, almost all of them on.. we need to replace a few strands! DH and I made this wreath ourselves by combining several.. well, three to be exact. We made the neighborhood crack up when this went up the first time, three years ago!


Our favorite ornaments:


Isn't he handsome? And not to be out done.. here's the little one.. who just learned how to say "CHEEEEEEEEESE!!!"


You'll learn much more about my fun, Disney freaked family soon enough! I need to get some sleep... full work week ahead...

Later y'all!

Welcome! Yes... Mom and Dad alone time! We try to do a little bit every year. This one was special, since it's our 10 year anniversary. Hope you join us for the fun! (Well, on the report anyway.. you might feel a little left out if you REALLY joined us!!)

Oh you guys really will, it will be so much fun.

That is a great idea about the disney reef, you know what i am going to buy after the holidays, i stock up like crazy after the holidays to get everything on clearance for the next year.

It is not worshiping false idols, you are just putting up decorations. Nothing wrong at all with the mickey reef.

My house was jammed packed last year with decorations, and i still bought 15 more boxes of lights for outside, and 12 more candy canes, not sure what i am going to do with them all, that is planned out on Saturday when the go up. I have a few ideas in my head, but still thinking them out, i have something cool planned for a few of our trees.


Ohh and i got another blow up santa for the yard.

Already have 1 mickey 7 footer, now i have another one with homer.

But he is only 5 feet tall.

How did you secure them together the reefs?

You need to take a picture of all of your holiday stuff! I love seeing what other people do!

We used wired to secure the wreaths together... we got the thickest wire we could get, that was still pliable enough to bend and twist. When we hung it up, we used picture hanging wire (heavy duty) and hung one wire from his head, and one from each of his ears.

Thanks for the tips on the wreath.

Totally awesome wreath. I saw this one on the Dis a few years ago, and considered doing it, but DH said, "No Way!" Bummer

Yours looks great!
