The castmember told us it was a "no go". Sooooo frustrating!
They are kind of big aren't they. About 15 minutes later she had the hang of it and the rest is history.

Lindsey got her heart broke in 2007. She wanted to ride Primeval Whirl and was about a half inch too short. She cried and cried. My brother and I went on it and we were kind of glad she didn't come with us. Poor little thing would have been crushed with the two of us sliding into her.

Old pic of the day!

Today I will post a pic of Josie's first character experience (2006). She is 8 months old in this pic. I may have posted this on the last PTR, but I love it and will post it again. It was Memorial Day and it was so hot that trip-temps were over 100°. I thought Jasmine was so sweet wanting to hold her and play with her.

On one of my Dad's leaves he and my Mom ran away from Columbus, Ohio to Monroe, MI to be married. Next July will be their 40th Wedding Anniversary. My Mom has always felt like she missed out because she never got a wedding. Around their 30th anniversary my Mom started dreaming of a Disney Wedding but unfortunately about 7 months before their anniversary my little sister passed away unexpectedly. That put the wedding idea in the toilet for them. I've been reading some reports and became really interested in the Escape collection vow renewal package. Thought maybe between my parents, my brother, Joe and I that we could do a vow renewal package at Disney for their anniversary in 2011.

After a lot of research I decided to call my brother this morning and run the idea past him. Much to my shock, he said he'd like to pay half and would like to split it down the middle with me! We're going to give them the package for Christmas and make it a total surprise. I'm calling Disney this afternoon to see what we can work out. I'm so excited to be able to do this for them. They really deserve it!
What a special gift this will be for your parents!! I will be looking forward to hearing their reactions come Christmas morning.

OMG!! I about died when I saw this photo. My first reaction was Pluto was relieving himself over the edge of the ferry!! So not a magical Disney thought.

Oh no!! I hope Josie hits a growth spurt soon!! Lilian (my DD) goes in big spurts so hopefully Josie will hit one and be tall enough too. I know I am hoping Lilian will be tall enough too... Right now, she is less than two inches the last time she was measured. She goes to the doctor's office for her annual check up so hopefully we will get good news then.

Not up in the home. I have 5 Disney albums on my living room table that I flip through all the time. A nice multi frame of our favortie memories might work though...hmmmm....thanks for the idea! I saw really cute multi frames at Target for about $30 that said "dreams", "family", stuff like that in the middle of the different frames.

Sorry for being MIA, had a super busy weekend. I had to make 4 dozen cupcakes for parties to bring on Friday so there went Thursday. Joe's parents are moving starting today and we spent Friday evening doing their final walkthrough on their new house and making plans for the move and of course trick or treating and parties filled up any spare time we had on Saturday. Yesteray we went furniture shopping with the in-laws and went to the funeral home. Busy, Busy, Busy....let the holiday fun begin!

On a sad note a very good friend of ours lost a son on Friday afternoon. His son was mowing the lawn and a limb from a tree fell and hit him on the head killing him instantly. His son was 25, married and had a young daughter. If you wouldn't mind, please pray for this family - it would be greatly appreciated. They are going through a very hard time right now and can use all the prayer they can get.

Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween! Pics will be up tonight after our Girl Scout meeting! Talk to you then.
