Twas the Night Before ... Christmas 09?! - 12/30 New TR! Please come join me!

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not … even …. a … mouse. WAIT, WAIT, WAIT. There IS a Mouse!! Yes, most certainly a mouse. It IS Disney World after all! HOW could it be Christmas in Disney WITHOUT the Mouse??!!

Soooooooooooooooooo… WELCOME!!! This is my Christmas in Disney World Pre Trip Report, and I am thrilled you have joined me for this festive holiday countdown!

I LOVE the Christmas season. Christmas decorations, Christmas music, Christmas STUFF. I am the freak who gets up on Black Friday to stand in line for a store opening at 3am!!! I am the industrious baker who churns out ten different kinds of Christmas cookies!! I am the nerd who can't wait for the Christmas wrapping paper display to go up at her local Container store! I'm just a Christmas dork who plays Christmas music in her car and her house during all waking hours from Thanksgiving until New Years... I can’t wait to spend a Christmas in Disney, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

This December, my family (whom I will introduce you to, or reintroduce you to in a minute) is traveling to
WDW December 20 – 27. We will be there the week before Christmas enjoying the holidays at the Beach Club Villas!!

The holiday participants include me, my DH, and our two boys, DS7 and DS4. I want to post a few photos from our July Trip to use in this introduction, I plan to include a few from my Photopass CD, so when the CD arrives I will post a "family" photo HERE!!!!



In the meantime, here is a photo of my THREE guys, and a picture of the two DS's on our 4th of July trip! AND a photo of ME, that my DS7 took with his disposable camera (this was on the train to Disney)...







So WHO are we?? Why are we headed to WDW for Christmas???!!! Join my PTR and find out the answer to these questions and MORE, including a mini-TR from the west coast and plenty Holiday chit chat about various things and of course, all things Disney during the Christmas season!! I hope to spread some holiday cheer and some festive fun along the way..
Ho HO Ho!!!

I know!!! "SHE" is glad, too!!!! My grandfather used to say "HO, HO, BAH!" Like it was too "jovial" to say it three times -- he always had to cancel it out! SO soon enough I might start adding that "bah!"
