Thank-you so much for saying so- I was really afraid I would be boring everyone and almost took a couple out! Glad to hear it was ok to leave them in.

Well...if you MUST know...those ****ty women TOOK his CLOTHES!!! I had to dress him quick before we went out into the UBER conservative town of KW!

Key West looks fun.

Yes...yes it is. A lot. a LOT!

Nice sunset pictures!
Thank-you!

GREAT!! We went to Ripley's in Niagara Falls a few years ago- the kids loooooved it- it was fascinating! I bet this would be similar, because I'm fairly sure it's franchised and somewhat consistent. Have a great time!!!

Ellen, once again I am behind with comments... I really loved your Key West posts, it sounds like you had a lot of fun. I was once on the Keys, but did not travel all the way to Key West. It is still one of those things I want to do one day. It looks like a very relaxed place.

But most importantly, I wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas! I hope you will spend some wonderful time together over the holidays!

If it is "5 o'clock somewhere," does that mean it can be 5 o'clock anywhere and all the time?

Hi Ellen! So sorry to hear your stove is broken. After all the baking I've done this week, and all the cooking to do tomorrow, I'd almost say Well Done! Hope you enjoy your Celebration anyway!

Your KW day looked like lots of fun!

The Ostrich Tail girl - maybe a Vegas dancer buying supplies?
I think the daytime crowd at KW would be more my style.
Oh shoot! If I knew you were going out, I would have had you pick up some pasties for me! I'm all out!
Love, Love, Love the sunset pics! That's one thing we miss by having early seating for dinner - we don't get to see sunsets much.

I'm glad the boys enjoyed the show. Enjoy your Christmas and don't forget to come back to us!

Happy Holidays Miss Ellen and Family!!!! What a beautiful family holiday photo!

Santa visited our house last night (yes, we are one of those families who celebrates several diverse winter holidays) and left nice presents for all, including treats for the pup. Rob received mainly tools (a bit of a hint from Santa to get back to work). Rob and Sarah both received zen clocks from me (so hopefully I will not be awaken by their buzzing alarm clocks any longer). Sarah received many books, cds, ... and a talking Toy Story Woody, who does not talk. Not a problem, the nice lady at the DisneyStore.com said another would be in the express mail right away. I received more Africian art and Grandma (my mother) received a "moving picture frame". Grandma was so excited with her present that we could not get her to stop looking at it while we opened the rest of the gifts. And while we all received welcome gifts, the best part, as always was being together and watching one another enjoy our tokens of love.

Off topic, I love the smell of AKL-Jambo and today I figured out what the smell is... wood smoke, I have been tending the fire this morning and my hands smell like Jambo.

Looking forward to hearing how you handled not having an oven for the holidays.

Kate

Hi Ellen!

I wondered where your TR was. I am so glad I found it over here on the Cruise Boards. I read the whole thing from top to bottom.

Your first day on the boat sounds like a disaster. OMG - I am so glad you located your computer. How awful to be sailing away knowing it was missing.

And poor Timmy, smashing his finger like that. And then waiting and waiting for dinner.

I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed with the food. YUM!

And the reason I came over here is because Denny has agreed to a Disney cruise. It won't be for another year. But I think its just going to be the two of us. I am so excited, I can't wait. It looks like a blast!

We took the kids on the Olde Towne Trolley Tour and took the obligatory photo at the Southernmost point. In hindsight, Mike and I probably would've have enjoyed Key West more following a similar tour plan to yours. And I think the kids could have lived without Key West. Oh well, next time maybe!

You are not THAT far behind! Key West is a very artsy, fun place. There is a great vibe there- it's very "What ever makes you feel good, please go right ahead and do it, we're all behind you!" There is not a whole lot of judgement there. It's a lot of fun! Hope you had a Merry Christmas, too, thank-you!!

Was it you who has attended a NY Yankee game??. If so, where wud u suggest I sit?? What section.....on the Yankees side??

Yes, I posted a lot of Yankee pics last summer- we were fortunate to be get tickets twice, both times the seats were awesome!! They were field seats- the first time, we were in the premium seats where there is waiter service in right field. While that was nice, I preferred the other seats, which were right next to the bull pen in right field- that was where Nick Swisher ran up to us and we could watch Mariano Rivera warm up to close the game. And there is no Yankees side-it's Yankee Stadium, the whole thing is the Yankees side!

Sounds like you have an AWESOME year of vacations planned!! Are you doing ABD again??

And thanks for the card tip- not sure if I'll be sending Easter cards out...


Reason why I ask is I just booked a 6nght 7 day stay up at NYC - never been to the Big Apple & lookin' forward to it

But 1st.......I gotta get thru my adventure into the Emerald Aisle (June 11th).

Yes, well- I ended up spending half the day running up and down the street to my neighbor's house and using her oven. A HUGE PITA!!! But I was soooooooooooo grateful to her for allowing me to do it!

Your KW day looked like lots of fun!

It was fun, thanks!

Pasties are the BEST! Where would we girls be without them??
