Another great update Tracy! Christian and Hannah are just adorable. I love how Christian has his arm draped around Bill in the first photopass picture and how Hannah played bumper chairs with Bill. It's great to see you in some picture too!

I'm enjoying Josh's pictures, he got some good ones.

Looking forward to hearing all about Ohana!

I've been lurking and figured it was time to post The kids are so sweet..their expressions in almost every picture are just glowing, you can tell they're really appreciating the trip. It was so sweet of Bill to get the flowers for you. I'm sorry Josh decided to show his butt..and so early on in the trip! You absolutely did the right thing, hoping you didn't have to do it again toooo many times during the trip. It is awesome though, how great he seems to be with Bill. Now to get a picture of him smiling! Looking forward to the next installment...

The combination of your pix and Josh's pics give us all a sense of what the day was like through different eyes. For you it's about family, about these kids who are in your life, about making them happy. For Josh, it's experiencing the detailing of the park. He's loving it and you can tell in his pix.

The whole Hannah story about Ohana....so nice...made me mist up a bit!

I can tell Abbey, Josh and the kids love Bill. Like you said, it makes the heart swell.
I love how you talked about the combination of the pictures, that explains it perfectly. It was a great day.

It was a beautiful gift to be able to see her reaction to the Castle.

It really touched me that the kids embraced Bill, he was so happy.

I didn't make any of the customs you will see in our report, a lovely, wonderful, giving DISer named Piper made them.

Thanks for reading.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As for not crying when Hannah saw the Castle, Bill reminded me that I got all teary eyed, Abbey looked at me and said "please don't cry, if you do I will and we won't stop", so I sucked it up, dried my eyes and we walked up Main Street.

I got so excited when I read your chapter title! I missed the comma and read
"Sleeping in Magic Kingdom". I thought you got to stay in the castle! Glad you're getting to share your love of Disney. (Good of you to be patient with the smoking - I'm so commando that would drive me crazy!)

So sorry about you getting excited about the chapter title, I would freak out if we ever got to stay in the Castle . This is the second time we have taken a smoker to Disney. I swear I might tell them if you want to go back you have to quit smoking .
