Ladies, if I took pictures half as good as you sober like you do tipsy, then I'd probably make a zillion dollars as a pro.... Just sayin'.

Original is def. best.... partly because of the hilarious story behind it. totally something I'd do, without half a dozen drinks.

When I was a little girl I wanted a cuckoo clock bad. I was like 3 yrs old and kept asking for one. finally I got one for Christmas. I loved that clock.
Now I would think it would be extremely annoying.

Yeah! I was hoping you had pictures because I took not a one. That surprises me because those girls were hysterical! That whole banging on the drum thing cracked me up.

How much snow did you get out there Kathy? That looked ridiculous! I bet its pretty, but there's such a thing as too much snow.

We did have a giddy time. It was sooooooo much fun! Wish we were back there right now.

That and she looks like she has some serious buck teeth. I promise to change her back to normal!

I think Jen could go pro. She definitely has the eye for taking an interesting shot.

Yup - I could see you with that hat on your head and loving it.

Holy crap! So I asked Denny what our highest snowfall total was and he said 30 inches. So I googled it and heres what I found.

The National Weather Service reports from New Castle Country Airport that the storm of 2010 is the highest ever recorded in the area at 25 inches and tops the record from January 1996 of 22 inches.

So we beat you last yr. Yikes. Hope you got that driveway plowed!

A Recap of Day 5

I enjoyed my Day 4 Recap so much, I decided to write a Day 5 Recap. Well, not actually write one, but show 25 pictures that will retell the story. We only have one more day to write about, so here goes.

Day 4 Started with another spectacular sunrise over Bay Lake



Followed by a close up shot of Drench (I mean Splash) Mountain.



While Jen caught a few more ZZZZZZ, I went for a quick run and then we strolled over to MK for the Opening Ceremony.





After the Opening Ceremony it was time for a hearty breakfast at Kona.



Then it was on to the GF for a little pool time.











One of the highlights of our day was getting a sneak peak of the wedding chapel





After a lovely afternoon at the GF we headed back to BLT, changed, and made our way over to Epcot to enjoy a couple of KP Missions before dinner.

Our first stop was Norway, where we saved the world, again!





Of course, we enjoyed a few adult beverages.



Maybe, a few too many adult beverages because soon we were laughing at the singing beer steins....



....all while trying to wear adult beverages on our heads!



Before long, it was time to wonder over to our dinner ADR at



where we enjoyed yummy food and drinks.

After dinner we spent a few moments enjoying the sights and sounds of the boardwalk.










Upon Entering Epcot we headed over to Japan to pick a pearl. Sorry, I have no pictures to post to commemorate this event, so you'll have to take my word for it.

Finally, we headed back to China to drop off our kimmunicator and catch a bit of the Illuminations fireworks high in the sky.



And that, my friends, is Day 5 in a nut shell!

Up Next - Our final Day! A wild goose case to find the missing battery, a really loooooooooonnnnnnnnngggggggg wait for a bus, an AP crisis diverted, and one final visit to our favorite park of the trip! Stayed tuned for more fun and lots of last day pictures!

Awwh....Thanks. We really did make the best of our last day. Of course, I paid for it a little bit the next day, but it was worth it!

Stunning pictures Mary Ellen Love your recap I really want to stay at "the sandwich resort" in October so that we can pool hop

The weather here today has me really hankering for our May trip...between that and your pictures today I am like I am a drowned rat today after work....but in the end it was worth it because I sold 3 cars...but still I am a mess!!

If we are going to have a prize for our drinking game I would prefer the glasses over the hat.....just sayin'
