Beautiful Christmas cards! And I love Declan's hooded sweater. It really caught my eye. I can't wait to see the missing cards.

That Ditch looked so empty...like something was missing...oh, I know...ME!! We all left the day before- what a perfect plan you all had, hitting the Ditch on Cinco de Mayo.

Those sweaters Chris likes are BEAUTIFUL- I'm surprised they're even too heavy for you up in Canada- I'm freezing all winter in NJ- how can you be warm withOUT that sweater up there is what I want to know!!

LOVE your Christmas card, it turned out beautifully!

I'm excited for you for your quick solo trip and really bummed that I couldn't work it out to be there as well. Hope you have a great time!

Just found your TR yesterday and am already caught up! Awesome report! It's like a good book, I just couldn't stop reading. Can't wait to read the rest and I'm glad to hear it will not be your last trip after all. That would be tragic!

I'm baaaaack!!!!

Had a great trip! Absolutely loved MNSSHP. Had I known that I would like it so much I may have planned to attend 2X!!! Spend Canadian Thanksgiving with friends in Homestead FL. They were kind enough to surprise us with a thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, I was realy touched!!!

Did I read correctly??? Did Katie start her riding lessons??? If that is correct, I am soooo excited for her! As I told you, I will be living vicariously through her since my DD wants nothing to do with horses!

HI!!! I am back and all caught up (read my PTR for my reasons for being away )

I loved your EPCOT day! The kids (and shopping hubby) seem to have a blast! What a neat DISMeet too!

I am SO happy you reviewed San Angel Inn! My DH has really wanted to try that, but we are always scared to. Thanks!

Beautiful Christmas cards! Just love them. Also, how cool of those people to be paddling in pumpkins! WOW! Can't wait to read about Jiko!

My husband laughs at me that I'm plotting the outfits and don't know the weather b/c its can be cold or warm. Shopping today and I told him that we cant wear it until December and he looked at me
I am right there with you on plotting out in great detail outfits for a family photo shoot. As it turned out, we had to make a last-minute change for ours, but sounds like you will be smarter than I was and have a warm weather and cooler weather option.

Have fun at Secretariat tomorrow! Believe it or not, Katie and I are going for the 2nd time tomorrow too with some friends who haven't yet seen it. You will LOVE it!!!

I am insanely jealous of your quick trip! I haven't had the chance to meet C yet and Howard Jones is just icing on the cake in my book!

can I just say how funny it strikes me to see a Tim Horton's banner at the end of a 1/2 marathon Looks like you've had a fun weekend!
Hey Katie!!! Good to hear from you again! You are right - it is a little ironic to see a donut chain sponsoring a half marathon!

I will have to get back over to your TR to hear all about your meal at Jiko. I have not been on here much lately. I guess a trip to Disney is a good excuse to be absent.

Love the kids outfits, they are so cute!

I love that you guys have a pumpkin regatta....how fun does that look?

Ok....now about that Christmas card.....G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!! They did an amazing job with those pictures!

Thanks Queen!!! I am so looking forward to getting caught up on trip reports...and yours tops the list! Hopefully in another week or so things will be back to normal. I was out of the office for 6 days and just back so things are still a little crazy.

Sorry you didn't enjoy your meal at San Angel. We loved it. I can see if you are going in expecting TexMex, you would be disappointed. We really like authentic Mexican food and enjoyed our meals quite a bit.

A little solo time at Epcot, gotta love that!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Looks like a very fun weekend - the gourd scavenger hunt sounds like so much fun! What a GREAT idea. I just might have to go pick up some gourds and do that with Henry, even though we don't have Thanksgiving for another month, it will still be a fun activity! Super cute pics of the kids in the tree.

Your Christmas card turned out beautifully! I wish I could see the others, I'm sure they are just as beautiful! Perhaps the pictures will come back.
Thanks for the comments on the cards....I actually had them mailed to me at the Beach Club of all places since they don't yet ship the cards to Canada. I just picked them up Monday and they look great. I will take some photos over the next few days and repost them so you can see!

I think American Adventure is a must-do. Especially if you are American! While I like Hall of Presidents, AA is far more moving and poignant IMO.

You are too funny! We certainly missed you girls at our Cinco Meet!

As for the sweaters....yes, we definitely get our cold days up in Atlantic Canada. But because we are surrounded by the ocean, our temperatures tend to be warmer than inland areas...like NH! Sorry!

In all seriousness, I would guess our temps are pretty comparable. But DH always seems to be on the hot side of comfortable, even in the dead of winter.

No kidding! I was at MNSSHP on Oct.17th? Were you there too by chance???

Yes, Katie started her lessons and has been absolutely loving riding! Actually we are both enjoying it - I am riding with her!

Oh Katie....I assumed quite incorrectly that you were busy (in a good way)with life all this time. I just read your PTR for the update. How terrible! I am so, so sorry!!!

We have had a number of things come up recently with our house too. The list includes replacement of both fireplaces (Chris is convinced the masonry is failing and possibly causing water leaks into both chimneys) and installation of a steel roof (Chris is convinced the 15 yr old asphault shingles are at their limit and is keen on a steel roof as we are right on the ocean and get blasted by strong winds and salt), plus replacement of the patio doors off our kitchen and master bedroom. Major, major, major expenses. I was feeling sorry for myself as I have also been questioning whether an October family trip at the BC is really in the cards next year. Then I read your update and felt absolutely sick for you and immediately stopped feeling sorry for myself. I am so glad that you are still going in December. You will definitely need this trip and I am so happy that you are still taking it!

Don't worry...I may not be as fast in writing this report as I have been in the past, but it definitely won't be abandonned. If you can stick with me, I promise I will finish. I was away for 6 days, and I am just coming up for air, and still very much in the process of catching up at work and at home.
However, I should have an update or two to throw up sometime over the weekend.

Hi Trish! I know I've been MIA from the DIS the past few months but I'm back and I just spent the morning catching up on your TR!! I can't wait to read more and see how your birthday dinner goes! And I LOVE your Christmas cards!! WOW! You are ahead of the game! I will be rushing to get ours done when we get back from our trip since I want to use pics from our trip with all of the Christmas decorations! Oh--and I wanted to add that I just ADORE Katie's Tiana custom--BEAUTIFUL!!
