Hey everyone - I added a new pic to my first page...I wanted to share it. I think it is a nice family shot.

The family shot is very nice!!! I love your new hat -- it looks very warm!

How sad that no Disney bags came home with you -- you will have to make up for that while you are down at Disney!

Love the hat...I bought one almost identical for Jasmine but in black! I would not have been able to walk away from that suitcase....willpower is really not my strong suit Jasmine works at Winners here which is the Canadian equivalent to TJ Maxx and there was a suitcase there that she just HAD to have for her cruise....so I called grandma and grandpa and asked if they would like to buy it for her for Christmas so she now has a new suitcase! Her old one has seen much better days

That is a beautiful picture of your family!!!

I think the t-shirts are cute - it's too bad you guys didn't get anything there! And the suitcase was REALLY too cute! I love it! TJMaxx, you said... hmmmm....
The hat looks really cute on you - if I had long hair I might get a hat like that! Now that I've chopped off my hair, headbands/earbands are more the way to go. Otherwise, I just look sick.

Very nice family picture! You guys look very happy

I'm glad you all have made it through your first holiday season without your Dad - I know it's tough - but it's over now. You have a baby shower to look forward to now - yay! That's how it is, you know. Life goes on...

Happy New Year!

Thanks! I think that DH and I will certainly have bags in Disney! He enjoys buying souvenirs as much as I do, if not more...; right, honey? (he reads my reports...)

I couldn't really justify the suitcase. Our girls have the red promo ones from the summer, and our basic luggage works. Plus, it didn't seem roomy...

I thought the shirts were cute too! Eight year olds . I can't imagine cutting my hair off...even a couple of inches seem like a lot.

Ironically, the picture was taken at the very end of my dad's funeral luncheon. (We take pictures at odd times; one of the best family pictures I have is from my grandfather's funeral luncheon at the same place.) I think relief might have been the reason for the carefree smile on my part. The girls are too young to understand the magnitude of losing him.

It was a hard holiday, especially for my mom, but she didn't show it. Her strength amazes me. We underestimated her.

Yeah baby coming; boo baby shower. I am in charge of games for a coed room of 65! (Everyone states how they can tell I am a teacher...)

Yay for Magical Express mail!! That's always an exciting day! I can't believe you passed on that luggage! I love it! But luggage is one of those things that once you already have it, it makes no sense at all to buy more. There's a cute piece of luggage on the disney website that I kind of want but what am I supposed to do with my old luggage? The hat is so cute! And that family pictures is just gorgeous! Hope you guys had a great holiday!

I saw the cute luggage on the site. tempting!! but you're right; it isn't like you can just have two sets sitting around. I hope you had a great holiday!

I am going to be an auntie soon too! I can't wait to take SIL, bro and baby to the world! You are going to have a fab trip with your family. I have to look to see if you started your ptr yet!

Tangled was fantastic!

Driving home yesterday, I decided that it was about time that I saw Tangled!




When it first came out, neither of my daughters (odd little eight year olds) had any interest in seeing it. As a matter of fact, the one was adverse to seeing it... No worries; I figured I'd see it alone and be happy about it!

When I got home and announced my plans (asked dh his plans- Univ of DE playing big game - too bad they blew it), my one little one wanted to go with me!

We had to go to the store to buy beer for the male prizes for today's baby shower. I found Bagpiper's Scotch Ale...thought it was a great touch. My dad was 1/2 Scottish and my brother wanted to wear a kilt at his wedding. haha. I like that it is a small way to have my dad there.

Next, we went to the baby store and bought SIL and DB a pack and play and some onesies.

Then, we were running on borrowed time - buying tixs at 7:00 for 7:05 movie...still needed concessions.

Just in time!!!


I laughed...






I cried....






I left LOVING IT!!!!!

I was the same way as DD, I didn't know if I wanted to see it. To spend $7.50 to see it plus the food (you hafta have the food!) but I caved, went, and LOVED IT!!

One of my roomies from FL and I agreed that the movie was great but the music was better in Princess & the Frog! All my kiddos at school seemed to like it too and talk about it all the time!

Glad to hear you enjoyed it too!

Sounds like a fun time!!! I'm glad you girls got to go have a good time!!!

I like the Scottish Ale idea and how it keeps a part of your Dad there - so very cool!

Sounds like you are going to have a wonderful time. I can't wait to read more. You are so lucky to have DVC points and have such variety in which place you choose to stay.

I am glad that you enjoyed Tangled, me and DBF are going to see it today. DBF scored free tickets to see it and Tron Legacy, so we are going to see both today.

Welcome! We are very blessed. (Also, our travel time is much less than yours!)

I hope you enjoyed Tangled as much as I did. I am not one to want to watch movies twice, but this is one that I do want to see again.

It was so worth the money! Even the $19.50 for the food! Funny, I think I like the music better in Tangled. I'll have to ask my high schoolers if they saw it...

It was nice to spend time with just Emma! I had a prize (beer) left and gave it to my brother! =)

Before my Disney update - Here are a couple of pictures from the babyshower:

This is DH's countdown to Disney beard. He says he'll shave it the day we leave.



This is one of the best gifts:


My brother is fire chief! I guess even better would be Sarah's Christening outfit, but the best was the little sweater that our aunt (who was a huge part of my brother's life - who passed six years ago) knitted for him. It had a fire truck on the back. My mom saved it and another sweater my aunt knitted. All of my brother's friends laughed at him and told him that he was wearing the one the night before. (I guess his style hasn't changed.)

I wanted to throw this picture in because my SIL is beautiful and it is rare to capture a bad picture of her. She and my brother pose and they are both so photogenic! This is a "normal" shot of her.

What to pack?!

We leave Wednesday night. I have to decide which shirt to wear to school on Wednesday (it is in Inservice day - no students.) Then, I need to pack for Thursday, Friday, Sat., Sun. and return Mon.

So, here is my Disney wardrobe:

Not really Disney, but I think that the designer for Ann Taylor Loft is a secret Mickey fan- I do wear this for school:














Mine is V-neck from Target


I have this on a light blue shirt. Sorry I can't resize.

I have the green.

[IMG]http://www.*****************/assets/images/apparel/adult/shirts/16563484.jpg[/IMG] Was DH's but shrunk too much in laundry!

I am a huge fan of What Not to Wear, so I only wear a couple of these in public - Saturday to store, etc. Others are ones for Saturdays when I don't go out. haha.

I am also trying to decide if I should wear only Disney T-shirts on the trip. (I understand Stacy and Clinton are okay with this attire in the theme parks. haha!)

Opinions????
