Glad you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Looks like you got some good deals. I didn't see that Dyson vacuum deal. I was at Kohls super early scoring deals and then was at Target about an hour after it opened, I couldnt' believe how many of their big doorbusters they still had left. Now I am soooooooooo wishing I would have scored one of the 27 inch HD TV's for 299, a friend of mine got one and it is awesome! Great score on the pins too, can't wait to see pics of them!

Christmas and possible dining changes

Hi Everyone! Sorry I haven't done a "real" update in awhile but I was battling a mild case of the flu! I am officially on the mend now though! I thought I would share with you all some of our Disney themed Christmas gifts for the boys.........


First is the stuffed Pluto that Eric has been begging for........




Next, a Pluto t-shirt that will come with us in June!




Next up a ridiculously priced Donald t-shirt for both boys! They LOVE him!



I had ordered Disney trading pins on ebay, I got 10 pins for $16 They aren't all keepers but that is OK because now the boys won't get upset when trying to decide which pin to give away when trading!!

First up are a Chip and Dale pin, Tinkerbell pin and Epcot parking lot section with Figment on it...



Next, one of the 3 caballeros (sp?), the Fairy Godmother and baby Mickey as a pirate...



then we have Pluto as a reindeer and another Epcot parking section with Figment...



Lastly, we have Goofy in a snowflake and a Magic Kingdom parking section!



I thought they were so cute and such a great deal! OK moving on. We also ordered Disney on Ice "Disneyland Adventure" tickets for all 4 of us to go and I bought a ticket for my nephew for X-Mas too! We will be going in January!




Dining changes............. I am so disappointed about the Coral Reef no longer having personalized menus or the divers with signs HUGE bummer as I was REALLY hoping to do this for Bryan! So I might change our lunch from their to somewhere else! The other "issue" is Mama Melroses Fantasmic package....... We have never been in June, I know it can rain ALOT so here is the problem, I don't know if we would be better off just winging it on one of our other DHS evenings and trying to get into Fantasmic or should we just take a shot and keep the package? The only bummer with the package is that if it rains and Fantasmic is canceled it will have all been for nothing AND I have to cancel at least 24 hours in advance I am hoping and praying that the 180 day ADR window opens back up on the 22nd like it is suppossed too BUT it does not look too promising according to the threads over on the restaurants boards

Lastly I would like to share with you all that my little man Eric received his yellow belt in karate this morning!! I was so proud, he was SOOOO nervous and practiced for literally hours! Here is a picture of him before we left for the testing.........



Why are there no pictures of him afterwards.............well..........I FORGOT my stinkin camera on the kitchen table!

On that note, I hope everyone is progressing with their shopping and enjoying the holiday season, I know we are!!

Diane

Adorable gifts! I know the boys will love them all!

Congrats to Eric for his yellow belt. He must be very proud (and his mommy, too).

Glad you are feeling better -- being sick is the pits!

I agree with the Coral Reef thing, it stinks!!! Especially with it being their year of celebration promotion, doesn't make any sense to me! .
We never do the Fantasmic package anymore in June for that exact reason you mentioned. If you get to the show 1 hour before it starts you will be fine and no need for the package. It rained on us our first year with the package and we decided never again.
Great purchases! Enjoyed the update.
Lesley

That Donald shirt rocks--I'd like one for myself. I'm guessing I couldn't fit into it, though. Rats.

Congrats to Eric on his yellow belt! That's fantastic.

Thank for your input Lesley! I think we will forgo the package and just eat there and wing it! I am so mad about Coral Reef and I agree about the celebration theme. I bet they will bring it back but now CHARGE for it!
