It's snowed here today and we are going to go in the hot tub, fill one of the side pods with snow and play making snow balls and mini snow men.
It's nice when you can do this in the hot tub, you stay nice and toasty warm
I just love that Becca!

Hot tubing in the snow, what fun! It is cold and snowy here today too.

I'm sorry Becca is still not feeling well in the mornings! Just when you thought you had it gone!

No the dog has not been found. She was in our trap 3 times and we had a homeless man throwing rocks at her. Final straw was the warning shots. Sorry for the dog, we really did try to find her and save her. I am hoping she gets hungry enough and cold enough that she seeks refuge in the local hotel. We have a hefty reward out for her safe capture.
What kind of dog was this?

You mean TSC isn't the anchor store in every town????

Hi there! I just found my way here from the DisBoutiquers Big Give. Becca's comments about the outfits sounded so much like my daughter Megan. She is a tomboy and while most of the girls love the ruffles and twirls, she's most happy with plain capris to go with the outfits that i make her. She also has very little interest in the princesses. She's more Tink - "so not a princess!"

I know at the begining of your PTR you talked about not doing character meals and I don't know if you 've made your dining choices but one place that my kids and my niece and nephew (ages 6,8,8,10) all loved was the Coral Reef. The food was okay, but they really enjoyed the giant aquarium.

I am SOOOO Jealous...all of this talk about SNOW! I WANT SOME!!!!!!

Not all the time...but maybe ONCE this YEAR? Even some ice would be ok with me (as long as everyone stays safe and our power is not out forever!)

On second thought...maybe no ice....

But snow...would be so nice!!


"You mean TSC isn't the anchor store in every town???? "

all i have to say about that is...

When I talked about SuperWalmart and Momma2dakidz talked about Tractor Supply, we were talking about a neighboring town

The town where I live actually has only One Stop light, and a MacDonalds

I am just dying over here, they have NOOOOOOOOOOOO clue on your town!

People think i am weird because i have 4 acres and a house out in the country and its sitting vacant, while i live on a city lot in YOUNGSTOWN. I just cant move back to the middle of no where.

Hey atleast the neighboring town has a dairyqueen!!!!! YAHOOO

And they HAVE to have a SUPER walmart, there are NO other grocery stores!!!!!!!

And the dog is a husky mix, have you seen the LEDA posters? We plastered them everywhere, i have a feeling that homeless guy tore them down though. (we refused to pay him to stop scaring the dog away)

I am glad you can laugh about the town, i wasnt sure how to explain it to people who have never been there before.

We like our small town, so long as we have transport to get back to the real world once in a while, we are good

Becca is excited that her Big Give has started........She keeps forgetting she is 12 years old and keeps asking me how long we have to go until Disney Calendar ? Look-it-up?
Oh, she keeps on refreshing the page on here to see if Eyeore on the Ticker has moved a millimeter since last time she looked

We have many "towns" like that around here too! Blink and you miss it! But, they don't have a McDonald's, and one of the stores on "Main" St. fell down into the road last month. I'm not sure how long it was before anyone noticed.......

Hi all,
I dont seem to have been online much since Thanksgiving, sorry, just life, dentists/opticians/hospital and no other particular reasons .

Becca is still having a few unwell episodes, not everyday like before, maybe 3 or 4 over the last 2 weeks. It is definately her blood sugar because if we catch it in time (mum I dont feel so good stage) and feed and water her (horse much?? ) we can usually ward of any incidents.
We are still working with the Neuro 90 miles away to try and find meds to take away the headaches. We have also seen an in hospital opthamologist to make sure she hasnt anything on her optic nerve. Went for a MRA and a MRI with and without contrast on Monday. She has no malformation and no abcesses on her brain but does show a "slight" fullness to the brain. This was relayed via our family doctors office reading off the MRI report, we will have to wait until our Neuro reads to report to find out if "slight" fullness is anything bad or just one of those things.

Still trying to work out Oxygen for the plane with MAW/doctors.

Busy getting ready for Christmas I Luuuuurve Christmas

To whomever the Fairy Godmother was that sent Becca a wonderful postcard from Disney.........Thank you so much
Becca is on

On the back of the postcard it says....
Becca,
Looking forward to seeing you soon,
The Whole Gang

Gosh...my prayers to you on the fullness of the brain...maybe she is just FULL of smarts!! So many awesome brain cells that they just are having trouble all fitting in there! But I am praying for you guys.

I am getting excited about your trip!
