The camera is awesome; it's a Nikon D40. Most of the pictures are taken witht he lens that the camera comes with, but I also bought a longer range lens that comes in handy when I'm trying to get details (I love details!).

It's a gorgeous camera.

Ahh that's the one my bf has too, but he's considering replacing it with a Canon despite only buying the Nikon a year ago and after he's bought a tripod, lenses etc to fit it... Men! I think he just needs more practice with the one he has, and i'll definitely be showing him your pics to see if they'll sway him into keeping it

I see Tinkerbell!

When I last left you we were on the boat from Downtown Disney to POR.





The kids had no idea what was in store for them...



Especially not an In Room Celebration!

I'd ordered the smaller of the two major packages, and the reactions were so worth it!







This little box was added on by me, because I can never leave well enough alone...



And here's what was inside!



Mmmm.. Chocolate.







Lexi still sleeps with both of these guys in her crib. They're as big as she is! (I added the Minnie to our package, so the little girls wouldn't fight over one toy.)



Everyone was screaming when we came in the door and saw Tinkerbell's light coming from the bathroom! She was suction cupped on there, looking over the joy she'd spread.



They couldn't even wait for me to take a picture!





All in all, a fabulous way to end Day 2 of our 10 first days at Disney World!

(On a side note, it occurred to me later on that the in room package was missing a pair of Mickey hand gloves and a hidden Mickey book. I emailed the Disney Florist who had helped me set up the package, and she was incredibly apologetic, explaining that we were one of the first to order the surprise and they were still working out the kinks. A short time later we received a box in the mail from Mickey Mouse, containing the missing items plus a Disney World tote bag, an apologetic note from Mickey and a signed picture! So sweet and well handled!

What a cool surprise to come back, too! I have to say my absolute favorite thing though was the Tinkerbell! I want one of those for my bathroom mirror here at home!

I was stuck in that position and ... It took 4 strapping young boys to hoist me back on my feet
Personally, I'm a popper! I love me some black heads.

I debatted about it for a long time, but in the end I figured with this being our first trip, it would be the perfect time.

Totally was worth it! I don't think I got a pick of the yellow Mickey feet on the floor, leading the way. And the bigger package had a cookie bouquet or something, and an embroidered blanket. It was AWESOME.

That is a wonderful treat to come home too! What fun!

The tinkerbell light is amazing.

Disney handled the missing items very well!

Thanks for sharing the In Room Celebration Pictures-Awesome...

I'm thinking it would be kind of nice to have some one set one of those up for when I come home for dinner tonight....

They really did. It was incredibly sweet to go so far and make it right!

I'm tellin' you, having kids has been my go-to excuse for fourteen years... by the time my youngest is too old for me to use that one anymore, my oldest will be giving me grand children!

I agree! While we're out it, I'm going to need mousekeeping every afternoon and Wolfgang Puck in my kitchen...

I don't think that's too much to ask for! While we're at it, I'm going to need a Basin outlet in my bathroom...
