I feel the same way!!! It seems like November will drag getting here. But, we will be in Gatlinburg soon, then we are going to PCB with my parents in April, then we are at our lake house every other weekend through the summer, so hopefully it will get here fast!

I think I pressed the wrong thing and unsubcribed from your thread too, eeek (that's me saying it as I can't work out how to put the smilies in, he he)
Did you figure out how to work out your iphone???

More Gatlinburg pics

Okay, so these pictures were made while we were driving up Nature Trail road. Just don't look at the dates on them! We visited the wax museum 2 days since his parents arrived late the first night we got there!



This is a little cabin we like to stop and look at everytime we go!













Okay so after that we drove up the nature trail road! Well, funny story! I put my window down to take some pictures. Now, mind you there was snow and it was freezing!!! I pushed the button to roll it up and it wouldnt' budge!!!! The window had come off of the roller upper (I am not a mechanic, so I don't know the words! )
The only thing we could think to do was drive to a car place to see if they could fix it. We had to drive to Sevierville and the first place we stopped, recommended the one we finally went to! Now, this was how I had to ride down the road!!





The sweet man who came and looked at my car, said that it was just stuck.
So, he tried to push the button to roll it up and it wouldn't budge. So, he grabbed some pliers and pulled it up and taped it really good until we could get it home to get if fixed!! It has some bright lime green tape!!!!

i used to have a honda civic that did this ALL THE TIME. ray would have to take the inside paneling off the door and fix it. he said it was coming off track. i eventually sold that car to my little brother and when it did it to him, he was too lazy to fix it and so he rode around with either the window down all the time or with a garbage bag covering it.

That is SOOO funny!! We had a car window taped for a while, a couple of years ago, because we thought it was going to cost SO much. Finally found out that it cost $150! That's it? I drove around for 5 mos with plastic on my window for $150?? Too funny about your brother. It probably didn't even phase him.

The phone is great to have as an extra tool, and its nice to have the internet anytime, but its no substitution for a laptop.

I love your pictures again, the snow looks so beautiful. So was the wax musuem in Gatlinburg then?

Hi, what's up?

Those mountains are beautiful. I love the pics of you in the snow. It's so funny you consider snow a neat/cool thing. I'm soo ready for it to melt away. We had black ice several days this week and in one 2hr span we had about 200 accidents. We had 4 men rushed to the hospital in one morning this winter for heart attacks (from over exhurtion from shoveling mass amout of snow). Very pretty to look at but after Xmas it can go and I'd be fine with it.

I will admit I missed it when I lived down south, but I didn't miss driving in it.

We will have lots to talk about until November, we always do.

Have you bought anything on Ebay lately?
I got Lexi an autograph book for our trip. I'm so excitted I found the other Build a bear princess dresses she was missing. (Jasmine, Belle and Mulan) She already has Cinderella, Aurora, Ariel, Snow White, Tinkerbell. I even got her the Mickey ears and tee. They only sell them in DTD in California, so they are hard to find. She wants to dress a bear in a different dress each day we are there, very cute idea since she is too old/big to wear the princess costumes herself.

I've changed her bday theme again.
It went from Chinese/Mulan to Build a Bear. The only problem was I could only get the party stuff from one company online and the shipping is crazy to Canada. Then I would have to pay duty taxes ontop. Too much $$$.
I was shopping this week and came across Mickey & Friends party stuff. So it's now a Disney bday! She will love it. I'll dress her BABs in the princess dresses and put party hats on them. I went on Ebay and they have tons of stuff to decorate with. They even have a bday Mickey plush that sings. Her bday is April 7th so I have lots of time to order stuff. Come to think of it I should have stuck with BAB, I'll probably spend more money with this theme...

Hey Heather! Thanks soooo much for the Gaitlinburg info. I'm going to go take a look at it now, I just wanted to see the pictures you posted. The mountains look so beautiful and I love the pictures you guys took. Thats too funny about the window too! Lucky that you found some place to tape it up all pretty in green tape for you

yeah, he didn't care. especially because he wrapped it around a telephone pole about a month later! i was so sad - i loved that little car! when i sold it to him it had 180,000 miles on it and was still going strong. oh, and don't worry - my brother was okay.

The Gatlinburg pictures are beautiful. It's a great place for shopping and pancake eating!

Window roller upper thingie...that's exactly what I would have called it. Can't imagine what name would suit it better!

I love the pics from TN. I went there with B/F back in 2005 and stayed in a beautiful cabin up in the mountains.

Lime green tape for the window?! He must've known you were a DIS'er!

Wow good thing you were not here in the frozen land...It is a whooping 10 degrees today and it feels like a heat wave! I would have loved to see the Lime Green tape.

Your snow pics are really really good! I wonder if there's snow up there right now? I'd love to take the kids to see snow and they're out of school Monday. OMG I bet you were FREEZING! It's so cold outside right now my fountain is frozen solid and the mud puddles are frozen in the roads. Yikes. Me not luvin' this at all!

Thank you soooo much again for that Gatlinburg info! It looks so beautiful and I will most definitely have to go there at one point or another but it doesn't look like it will be this summer. Unfortunately the main criteria for our summer trip is that we can drive there and Gatlinburg is too far to drive for us I was all excited too and I showed my BF and everything and finally he was like "babe you know we can't drive here though, right?" Very upsetting
