When the big kids pulled away our things had been sent over to Saratoga Springs. We had nothing to do but head to the bus...
It was still raining a bit and we weren't in any hurry to be out in it.
We decided to go to Animal Kingdom and catch a bus to a resort to get a bite to eat.
When we got to Animal Kingdom we just stood and thought about our choices. We really wanted to check out a resort that we had never been before.
This is where we chose to go....





Does this give you a hint?

How about this?



Yes, if you said CBR you are correct!







Marc and Baylor had burgers, I had a turkey sandwich. Everything was quite tasty!
Then it was time for some Christmas Day retail therapy!








I would like to have this girl on my desk!



This is a cheerful Minnie!



This Mickey makes me think of Happydog's and Shannon's little guys!



Here's a Mickey for Charles and MEK!



Vinylmation....



Christmas pins



Christmas yumminess!












I don't remember seeing this coconut anywhere else....



We looked outside and the rain had stopped.
It was time to go to Saratoga and check in.
It's always fun to see where they are going to end up putting you in such a large resort.
We hopped a bus to DTD.
Then walked over to SSR.
We then got a bus to the lobby and checked in.
We ended up right back near DTD in Congress Park.
Just where we wanted to be!


Continued in next post.

Here's a picture of the Christmas tree at SSR.



We were delivered to our rooms bags and all and quickly decided to make our way to Magic Kingdom to salvage what we could of Christmas Day.
Let's just say when we walked in the mood lightened.
Baylor began dancing right down Main Street.
Marc and I just looked at each other and smiled!
All was right with our world again.
It was crowded yet manageable.


I took photos as we walked...



























We ate a late meal at the Noodle Station, I had soup and don't remember what anyone else had. The chicken soup was really good.
It was crowded.
Cast members were keeping folks out.
You couldn't get a table unless you had a tray of food.
So I waited with Baylor until Marc came with our food, then we were allowed to the seating area to grab a table.
After we walked toward Big Thunder, I wanted to find a place for Spectro and the guys were going to ride.
I snapped this picture on the way.




This picture is a little disturbing, do you see that wolf?

















Continued in the next post.

Baylor was feeling the Magic Kingdom!









With this we took the bus back to Saratoga and went to bed.
It had been a long day!
Big plans tomorrow!
Plus a big, big, thrill for a little boy!

Harper is so sweet in all of the pictures. Her outfit is cute, and she looks like she is just going with the flow.

It didn't take Baylor long to get happy. That was good for all of you. I bet you were really ready for bed that night.

Great update, wigd! I loved all the pictures.

Well, you know what Donkey says on the Shrek Christmas special, "My mom always said Christmas wasn't Christmas until someone cries." I always laugh because that is truly the way it has always been in my family, but I am sorry that Keeley made Baylor cry on Christmas morning in Disney.

AKL is so pretty decorated for the holidays, and I love the gingerbread houses (especially the Spirit of Africa one).

Hurray for checking out CBR! Their Christmas decorations are really neat! If I had been there I would have had to buy the Christmas Tink with the Castle pin, the reindeer Pluto pin, the Christmas pajamas for Chelsea, and the soccer Mickey for Charles. I guess I should budget a pretty big souvenir budget for 2011.

I am so happy to see Baylor smiling at the Magic Kingdom!!! What a great way to spend your evening!

Moments like that make all the other junk worth it. Glad the rest of your day went well. I love the Alice tea set!

As you can see I'm in updating mode this weekend.....
With a trip coming up, I need to get two more days finished of this one so I can get the next one going when we get back so let's get going!

We woke up to another cool crisp day. We were happy to see no rain! Yay!

Animal Kingdom is where we were going today....

Brier Rabbit was out front for a photo op!



We only had a few must do items on our list, one was ride Dinosaur so that was the direction we went.
On our way we noticed a group of young men that were rather large.
Well large doesn't do them justice.
They were giant!
We talked amongst ourselves and I decided to approach them to ask if they were with some football team that were playing in a bowl game.
They were!
Penn State!!
So I asked if they would take a picture with Baylor...
They said yes...
Baylor took off his KU hoodie,
and posed for this.




As we walked off, one of the players gave Baylor a "rock chalk Jayhawk"!
Needless to say, we all were thrilled!
Plus they won their bowl game!




Baylor wanted to practice his driving skills.





After Baylor's drive we had lunch here...




Didn't get pictures of our food our anyone else's food MeMom! Baylor had the best though, he had the chicken and we all helped him finish his lunch!


On to Dinosaur and here we were!



After Dinosaur we left the park we were on the go because we were heading to Old Key West to meet our friend Julia for a quick dinner at Olivia's!
Here we go on the bus....






If you have not been to Olivia's I recommend it! It's not hard to get into at all and it's good! Julia had a pasta and shrimp dish. She is from Louisiana and loved it!
I had an appy and it was good, we all enjoyed our food! We weren't really hungry, but will go again for sure!

Next stop was DHS!

We wanted to spend more time at Osbourne Lights so that's the direction we wandered...

Marc was snapping pictures.










It was getting late so we headed back to Saratoga watched a little television and went to bed. Tomorrow would be our last day in Disney and we had some fun people to meet!

You know those Penn State boys were just as thrilled as you all were! I am sure they liked feeling like celebrities! Too cute that one of them said, "rock, chalk, jayhawk!"

Great, great updates! I'm so relieved that MK cheered Baylor right up.

Olivia's is great! We ate breakfast there on our honeymoon, and it was really good. We're hoping to get back over there sometime for lunch or dinner.

I can't wait to read about your last day!

Yeah, well, when you only have a PBJ someday, you may lower yourself to taking pictures of other people's food!

The chicken at Flame Tree is so good. I love just walking by and smelling that place! Aroma was one of our Vocabulary words this week, and that place was totally my first thought when I was making up sentences!

I love the happy picture at the Osborne Lights. Looks like a nice end to the day.

Yay, Disney magic at its best. I'm glad Baylor perked up after you got to MK. Baylor looks so small next to the football palyers, they must have been huuuuuge!
