Oh, that's great, blame it on the little guy. How original. He must've read the schedule wrong with his one eye.

You guys are so funny ! "Food porn" sounds so bad haha.

Poor Courtney ! That sucks that you got sick. I love the snow pictures; I totally tear up too when I watch the holiday fireworks You know, I could never get used to that mint julep. It just doesn't sit well with me. I always feel like I'm drinking mouth wash. I'm glad you like it though !!!

I've been battling a cold for the past week, and I was just grateful that I caught it after going to Disneyland. I don't even want to think about not feeling well at Disneyland.

Having been sick at Disneyland you have my deep sympathy. It can ruin a trip.

Secondly, you're right - from those snow pictures, it does look like a lot more than what they dumped on Main Street last year. I LOVE that! I think they should dump those bubbles all over the park, in every land! The snowier, the better, in my opinion!

Next, I love the picture of the Teacups - those lanterns look so beautiful when they are lit up at night. And you're right - the picture of the red sky does look creepy and doomsday-ish!

Finally, the Little Green Alien Man that you found must be what I recalled seeing! It was driving me nuts because I thought I had quickly passed through some shop at some point last year and seen a stuffed Alien out of the corner of my eye (and didn't stop to look at it), but it must have been the one that moves and talks. I hope if you change your mind and decide to get him in the future that there are still some left. Seeing that he was hiding underneath baby Buzz and baby Woody (one has giant teeth, the other one has an enormous head!), this must mean the alien men are becoming extinct! I love all the Disney characters as babies. I love the Disney Cuties series because they look like Disney characters as if they were drawn by Hello Kitty/Sanrio! They have big, giant heads! I almost got some pins I found in World of Disney with baby Pooh and his giant head, and the baby Mickey and his giant head, but I restrained myself!
I'm totally going to get the Little Green Alien next time. There was a couple in that bin. Hopefully you found one this weekend! And the baby Buzz and Woody were sooooo cute!!! They used to sell this purse that had all the Disney Cuties on it and I'm kicking myself because I didn't buy it and they don't have them in the parks anymore. GRR!!

I hope you're feeling better! I'm glad I wasn't sick the whole trip. For the time I wasn't feeling well already made my head hurt from not being able to go the parks.

It can! I'm so thankful this sickness didn't, although it did mess up one night, but I'm very happy it wasn't the whole trip. I can totally see how it can..

Disneyland - Day 2

Tuesday, December 2nd - DLR Day 2

Hi guys!! Don't think I forgot about you all! I love you guys! I've been so dang busy with work and Christmas shopping and wrapping and being lazy! But I'm BACK! And I'm going to continue this TR!!! Today I'm just cleaning and doing laundry, so in between that I will be posting here. So let's go..!

Even though we got back to the hotel early the night before, we still went to bed kind of late, around 11pm. Meaning we were tired in the morning and we woke up late. I don't remember the exact time, but it was the afternoon ish.

So here's where I get sick! Well the first time. I woke up before Jesus because I take longer to get ready than he does. I take a shower while he's still asleep. I get out of the shower and I just feel horrible. I've felt like this before 2 other times I can think of. The last time I did was not that long ago (early November) after I had my surgery. Anyways, I just felt like a big piece of poop and I couldn't do anything. So I get dressed real quick (even though that was a challenge) and just lay down while Jesus gets in the shower. I wasn't so much sleepy, just wasn't feeling well, so I was just laying there. Then I was thinking about the last time I felt like this I drank some orange juice and felt somewhat better, but we didn't have anything fruity or sugary and the closest thing we had to fruit was a fruit roll up thing. So I take a little piece of that. ICK. Bad idea. I run to the bathroom and just throw up. Jesus was already out of the shower, I think he was shaving? And he was like "...Uhh, what happened?" I threw up a couple times and honestly I felt better, lol. So after that drama Jesus says we can stay home and I insist I feel better. I brush my teeth and get ready. And I thought *THOUGHT* that was the end of that, but apparently not. You'll see later.

So we drove to the parks this time. I don't remember why, but we did. And our first stop?! City Hall for a birthday button!! If I didn't mention earlier we were celebrating Jesus' 22nd birthday!!! His birthday is really December 5th (same as Walt Disney's and Jesus' Mom's!) but we were celebrating a week early. So for some reason Jesus wanted Chuy (short for Jesus) on his birthday button. I don't know why. I don't call him Chuy, his extended family does, but whatever, he's the birthday boy.

Yay Happy Birthday! I like it when the CMs draw little Mickey heads on them.



So I don't remember what our "plan" was. Not so much that we had one this trip because we didn't. But according to my pictures we ended up in Tomorrowland and rode Buzz. It was walk on.

Buzz, where's your face?



And at first I was getting SO excited because through out the whole game (ride?) I was beating Jesus!!! He is a very competitive boy and never let's me win. So for me to be beating him was like a miracle. But alas, come to the end of the ride I lost by a lot. Our little car thing stopped a couple times so we were just shooting away and I think this is my best score!

This is Jesus the champion's score.



And this is mine the loser's score.



And our picture. I don't know, but it looks like I'm ducking from Zurg?



Then we went to Fantasyland and walked on the Matterhorn. Well about a 5 minute wait. We rode the Tommorowland side. And we always ride the Tomorrowland side and never the Fantasyland side and I have no idea why. We sat in the front of the bobsled and I think the very front as the most room. Usually we sit together and my knees always hit the sides, but this time that we sat in the very front, my legs had more room and my knees didn't bang. It was a really fun ride.



And then we went on IASWH! Yay! I totally love IASW! And I missed it and I could have cried with happiness that we went on it. I took a lot of pictures, so here we go.





I like how the facade extends all the way to the bushes.





Buffalo?



New flume!







We're happy!!



Inside the ride.







I love this hippo guy!!



Feliz Navidad!!!!!

Yay, an update!

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. Yay you for being a trooper and going to the parks even though you weren't feeling well.

You do look like you are ducking from something in your BLAB photo!

I always ride the Tomorrowland side of the Matterhorn too. I don't go on it very often though, because I have a bad back and that's the only ride that makes me want to cry from pain, but I still LOVE it!!!!

Your IASWH pictures are so pretty, I love them! It makes me want to hop in the car and drive the 7 hours just to go on it!

Disneyland - Day 2 Con't


Sunny sun.



The "new" rainforest.



Yes, please. That would be nice.





I love giraffes!



So after our cruise around the world we went through the castle.



And we found this little lady sitting there talking to some kids. I love how bright her robe is.



We then just parked it on a bench and people watched. I love doing this. No so much the people watching part, but just sitting and taking in everything. No matter how many times I go, I could never get tired of
enjoying the atmosphere. We sat there for about 20 minutes and decided we were hungry and we would go to DCA to go get some food. Before we park hopped we took pictures.





Me trying to be Donald.



And Minnie with her princess pose.



I didn't know how to pose like Pluto. On my knees? So I just petted him.



Dumbo! I look really Asian here.



Partners.



Big mammajamma tree.



On our way out we stopped at the stores on the left side of Main Street. I fell in love with this picture. It's Belle on her horse getting away from the castleand the wolves *Sigh* I want it. Where will I put it? I don't know.
But I want it.



Me trying to be Myspace-ish in this really cool NBC mirror.



Then we went into the Main Street Cinema (is that what it's called?). I like going in there because they change the movies every so often and it's usually quiet and there's no one in there.





We saw the big cheese in his Christmas gear.



And the big duck!



The Train Station.



Tink with her crazy eyes.



Up next, DCA!!!

Disneyland - Day 2 Con't

The pretty much only Christmas decoration at DCA.



No Santa's Beach Blast this year.



So we decided we wanted Pacific Warf Cafe for lunch. But a ton of other people were thinking the same thing. We were hungry and didn't feel like walking anywhere else. We probably waited 10 minutes in line. I ordered the chicken salad and Jesus ordered the clam chowder. I also got a hot chocolate because I was getting cold. We got a table by what's left of the water on the other side of the pier that they didn't drain left. There was an older couple sitting at the table next to us and the man looked just like Santa. He had a real white beard and white hair and was wearing a santa hat. He also had on a red jacket. People on the other side of the water were waving and yelling "Santa!" to him. It was really cute. A family was walking by their table and they said hi to Santa and the Dad said to his kids "See, even Santa needs to come to Disneyland!". It was really cute. His wife didn't look much like Mrs. Clause though.

Anyways, here's some more food porn (naughty!). My chicken salad. It was really really REALLY good.



Jesus' clam chowder.



After lunch Jesus decided he wanted dessert. By this time the sun was starting to go down and I was just freeeezing. I was so cold. So we said Jesus would get some ice cream at Catch a Flave, we would ride Screamin' and then go back to the hotel to change into warmer clothes for tonight. We went to Catch a Flave and Jesus got orange swirl. It's super yummy. I love the cotton candy flavor best though, but I was so cold I couldn't finish an ice cream by myself. We stood near the big bilboards next to Catch a Flave and watched the people on Screamin' take off. Here's Jesus' ice cream.



The very dried out and empty Paradise Pier.



A Screamin' car about to take off.



The lights on Ariel's came on.



So Jesus finished his ice cream, I was still freezing and we waited about 20 minutes for Screamin'. I was even colder afetr the ride. Brrrr!



We always take funny pictures. And we both look Asian here and I look anorexic because I sucked my face in. Oh yeah, that's us in the front if you couldn't tell.



So after we got off and laughed at our funny picture I was almost in tears because I was so cold. We got to the parking structure, found the car and drove 5 minutes back to the Hojo with the heater on. I could not stop shaking. We got back to the room and I was literally crying because I could not get warm. I got into bed (without changing into pjs) and and as soon as I got comfy my face just turned so hot and red while the rest of my body was cold. Uhoh. Fever. So, I always carry medicine in my purse, Advil, Tylenol, Pepto, Claratin, Benadryl. I took some Tylenol but Jesus was thinking I was getting the flu. He said I should take some Day Quil, well, darling, I don't have any! He suggested him going downstairs to the Hojo super store and getting some. Wonderful. But it's going to cost you $10! He goes anyways and comes back with $9.95 DayQuil. Told ya so. I thank him and take it. Now at this time it's early. Probably 5:00pm. He said not to worry and we won't be going back to the parks. I felt horrible thinking I was ruining his birthday trip by being sick and blah blah. He tells me not to worry and we still have 1 day and a half left here. Aww.. So not that much later I fall asleep. I woke up again around 7:35 and I could feel my fever breaking. I felt a lot better. Woohoo! I get up, take my contacts off, change into my pjs and brush my teeth. Jesus is just watching tv. I get back into bed and right when I start to fall asleep I hear. Boom. Boom. Huh? Fireworks! Jesus wakes me up and tells me to look out the window. We had a perfect view. I didn't want to go on the balcony because I didn't want to get cold again so Jesus set up the 2 chairs right in front of the window and I got a blanket and we sat and watched the fireworks. I wanted to sing along to add a soundtrack to our musicless fireworks, but I only know the works to RDCT so I wasn't any help. So after that I go back to bed and I think Jesus fell asleep not that long after me. He set the alarm for early early so we could be at the park at opening.
