It's tough when you have a job where you have to work holidays. I'm extremely lucky since I work for a bank. Marc, on the other hand works as the overnight supervisor on a campus for kids who are in group homes essentially. So he has to work most holidays, then out of the big three (Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years) he has to work two of them. It's tough. Really tough.

Tough is right. I work in recreation so we are open every holiday except Thanksgiving day and Christmas Day. That is better than my last recreation job where we were open both those days too. We rotate too and I worked Thanksgiving Day weekend and the weekend after Christmas so I should have those off this year.

Yay for an October trip! Will you also do an October 2011 trip hopefully? That's when my family is going next and I would love to meet the both of you, MeMom and Jill.

I love to watch them interact. Bella is starting to get into Brooklynn's stuff now, when Brook has it out, so it should get pretty crazy now. Brooklynn's personality is full of drama, and Bella is going to be the tormenter. She's going to aggravate Brooklynn just to see her squeal.
We are flying...it would take us about 20 hours to drive down and that's precious time we could be using actually IN WDW.

Tink is definitely the more shy one of us two so I hope that being there she will feel more comfortable meeting Jackie.

I can just imagine the two of them playing together. Brooklynn not really wanting Bella to touch her things but being too nice of a big sister to actually get mad...most of the time

Congrats on making the October trip official!!

Yeah for an October trip!! WDW is much better than Dollywood I have to say. I still hope you can swing a trip at the holidays. It is not the same as when it is open completely, but there are a lot of cool holiday things.

Yeay, yeay, yeay for an October trip!!! Disney World in October is just wonderful, and much more fun than a Dollywood trip!!!

I had a lovely CM Saturday morning as well -- we had a nice chat about seeing the Main Street Electrical Parade as kids. I will "have" to make another call tomorrow to pay off the trip. I hope whomever I get makes sure to wish me a "magical day." I always get a warm fuzzy feeling when they tell me that.

Hmmm, if Charles and I were to get annual passes this summer, we could do a fall trip...

They are pretty funny. Brooklynn will have something in the living room floor and Bella just circles her like a vulture. The second Brooklynn puts it on the floor Bella swoops in, snatches it, and takes off down the hallway. If you could see how Bella walks/runs this would seem even funnier because she leads with her belly. I will try to get video and post it.

I love all the big kitties Our zoo doesn't have many. They only have cheetahs and snow leopards, but there's a zoo about 30-45 minutes away that has lions and tigers too.

MeMom are you done with school now? I'm down to 10 days of classes and 3 days of exams

I got to see my buddy yesterday! I've discovered that in Kazin's world, every animal is a dog. Sometimes he'll point at a cat and say "kitty" but usually he says "Doggy!" He has a little picture book of rainforest animals and when we were looking at it and I pointed to a frog and said "Kazin what's that?" "Doggy!" A picture of a bird..."Kazin what's that?" "Doggy!" If you want to see some current pictures of him, I just put some really cute ones on facebook!

Yay, so glad you get to go in the Fall. That is wonderful news!

I am with you, I would much rather go to Disney any day. I like Pigeon Forge but there is no place like Disney home for me!

Look forward to hearing all about it! When are you going this summer? We will be there July 2-11.

Well I'm hoping for the Studios cause that will help out with carpooling with my dad til i get my own car again. I do know that I want to be in Merchandise though.

Oh and if you don't see me posting for a few days its cause we're moving tommorrow and the earliest they can come and connect our internet at the new place is the 11th?! Then I leave on my own on the 23rd. I hope I can come back before then though. I really don't like moving so much.

There is a small possibility that mom and I might be there that weekend too. I just don't know about getting off work....again....Juice Plus is having their conference at the Gaylord Palms in Orlando now, was supposed to be here , but that could mean some more time at the World! Mom's already talking about buying a season pass for this year
