Hello! We are on the plane on the way back from my happy place. We had a good time. The weather was cold though. Crowds were moderate. I really enjoyed staying at the Contemporary. We stayed in the garden wing and it was nice and quiet. We looked out the window and could see some of Bay Lake, the ferry, and the monorail. I loved that part. We could see the fireworks at night also. Looks like we will be going home to potential ice today. Have a great day!

He'll be at Jill's next weekend.

Trent works a lot of hours, but there is time now and then to go over for a stroll around DTD. He usually tries to meet up with Marc and Anita when they are there.

Great way to spend the last evening -- just swimming and hanging out!
Yes, we all are. I'm sure he's looking forward to seeing his buddies again, too.

I hope our snow and ice ends up just being rain.

It was a nice night just to sit around and talk.

You are going from sunshine to icicles.
I'm glad you got to go!

Such sweet pictures of the rats and their Bubby. I know you will be glad to have him home. I bet Jarvis is looking forward to it. How is his Mom doing?

He has been going back and forth to see her a lot. I know she has been in the hospital at least once since last time. I don't know what the latest is exactly.

Jarvis has reconnected with an old girlfriend who lives up north, so I don't know if he's going to be here or there over Christmas. I know the two of them have been talking about going down to FL possibly in January.



*******************************************


It was the last Disney night. Trent and Tanya had gone, and Jill's crew was tucking in for the night. I couldn't just do nothing on that evening, and I had yet to be able to hook up with Poolrat, since I had sat out during the Animal Kingdom meet up.

So, I made my way solo over to Magic Kingdom to catch Jackie's favorite parade. I didn't have any more walking left in me, so I just watched from the top of the train station.





















I accidentally got a headless Cinderella.

Although my affection lies with the SpectroMagic Parade, here's my favorite guy in this one.








One last look down on Main Street.



I did meet Pat, the poolrat, on top of the train station, and we sat and talked for a few minutes. She was going on to ride some things, and if I could have walked, I would have joined her, but I was really truly done by this point in the trip. I just needed to admit defeat, go back to Pop, and go to bed.

The pictures were a nice break from addressing Christmas cards. I love the light parades, and that parade always brings back fun memories with my family.

It is great that you will all be together at Christmas, and the girls are visiting for a while after Christmas. I see alot of Disney movies in your future. Are the girls getting any new movie DVDs for Christmas?

You mean Trent actually removed that Gators hat from his head?!

The pictures of him & the girls are priceless. It's so sweet how close they are!

The Electrical Parade seems like a great way to end a Disney vacay!

I got Bella a Disney Sing-Along video with Pongo and Perdita, and I got Brooklynn the new Disney Santa Paws movie. I think Jill said she got a movie up in Kentucky, too, or maybe more than one. I'm not sure if Santa is bringing any. I imagine we will be watching several while they are here.

It is somewhat of a miracle, isn't it?

He loves those girls dearly. The one drawback he always says to living in Florida is just missing them and us. Everything else, he seems to like, so I am happy for him.

I am glad that I went ahead and went over to cap off the last night with the parade.

Last night in Disney. *sigh* Love the perspective on your pics from the MSEP. I really liked that parade but can't say if I favor it over Spectro or vicea versa.

Hannah is planning on there being no school tomorrow. I've told her she needs to plan otherwise.

Great updates and pics.

The pics of Trent and the girls are very nice.

The parade looked like fun. Hmm, did I see it?

Great spot for pictures of the parade. I have never seen that parade before; hopefully I will get to check it out sometime.

I am glad you made it too. I could tell you were so tired after this trip. I did enjoy spending time with you catching up, mother to mother. I know you miss Trent but you also know it is part of him being a grown up. I know I will be in that same position someday and someday soon.

Next time we are both in the World, we need to carve out a little more time to visit. We can walk slow and take in the atmosphere.
