Can I start packing?

We are a group of 4.

I already have the Dollar Store poncho's for the "da-- bear ride".....as we call it. We'll be the 4 ... Pancho Lopez's !!

I have Christmas Stocking kits for all 4 of us.

I have the strings of Christmas Lights for the balconies

I have already made red and white scarves for all 4 of us. (they match the red and white scarves the castmembers wear at Holiday events at WDW)

and.....I've started my lists.


I always send a box ahead of our arrival --- especialy at Christmas! I promised my DH this year's box will be smaller (at WDW we are closer to friends so there is always a second box with Christmas Gifts).

I can't promise....but I'll try to ship less.....but I MUST hang the foam snowflakes (from the Dollar Store) on our balcony - it's a tradition wth the 4 of us! What about my tinker bell nightlights? What about my little Christmas tree?

What an easy Christmas tree solution?



Go to the craft store and get a foam cone and a small package of stiff wire stems. Next, go to the Dollar Store and pickp BUNCHES of silk flowers -- don't forget lots of greens like ivy! Take the stiff wire stems and stick 2 or 3 down into the cone from the top to strengthen the foam. Next, cut down the wire stems of your flowers to about 2 inches. Insert the floral stems into the foam cone randomly - make sure you fill in all the holes.


One year at the Beach Club - when I took my friend Joan---for those of you who remember that story---I made a Christmas tree with green holly, pink and white flowers. I then wound the strands of tree trim that looks like pearls and a strand of 50 tree lights. It was quite simply.....georgous!

These trees are inexpensive, lightweight and I actually just leave them for the Mousekeeper (if they want it) or front desk when we leave.



Ok.....we depart Thanksgiving weekend....can I start packing now?

Booked for December

So excited We just booked our trip to Disneyland December 15-17 staying at Hojos. We're currently living in Sydney Australia for my husband's job, but we booked a trip to the States for Christmas. It will be so nice to spend the Holidays with our family, and celebrating our son's 6th birthday in Disneyland will be the icing on the cake! We were at DL for his 4th birthday, and we had so much fun and wonderful memories that we can't wait to do it again.

Ok, our outbound flights are booked. Air Tran has the "mother of all perfect flights"....non-stop from Baltimore. Now we worry that they don't change it into a connection through Atlanta.

Happily, it looks like the flight has good reservations so far.

I was checking out the stocking kits last weekend....have to get some sparkle paint and JEWELS to embellish and I'll be ready.

Oh boy...I can't wait! DH has not seen DL all dressed up for the holidays.

we normally stay at the holiday inn on south walnut.. but since this is my father's first and most likely only trip to disneyland.. we are staying at the grand..it will be easier on him as his heart is not good.

last year when we went to disneyland at christmastime.. it really put everyone in such a great holiday spirit. we loved all the decorations.

i hope they have the little cup of hot chocolate desserts at the plaza inn this year.. i missed out on getting one and you got to keep the cup..it was adorable.
