back finally

Hey Memom and Jill

I have finally caught up on your reports. I am back on the Dis finally. I am one of those who found it quite hard to get back on after my wonderful trip as living so far away I know I will probably never get back there and it was quite depressing for a time.

But I should have got back on much sooner as i am loving looking at all your photos and reports and it makes it even better as I can now say when looking at your pics - oh I went there or I know where that is now and remember some fantastic times we had.

Sorry to hear about your fall and hope it is getting easier each day and soon you will be back to your amazing self.

I am looking forward to your oct trip as we were there in oct so I will recognise alot of what you show I'm sure.

hate to say it but we are going into summer finally - it has been a long cold winter and spring was cold as well - we have only just started warming up and it has been pure bliss!!!

I am so impressed that Brooklyn did those big rides - our 7yr old was totally traumatised after ToT and Rock and roll coaster and we couldnt get him on anything after that which was so sad. We should have gone with our gut feeling that he wouldnt enjoy them but he was so adamant he wanted to try and it was awful. Though he now talks about going again and having another go???!!!

Anyway take care.

I will try to do better as we continue the summer report and then to the October report. It will help us remember warmer times as we count down through January and February to our next trip!
Jill I do not know how you keep up with everything!! If I was doing everything you are doing I would never get on here.

MeMom so sorry about your accident. I hope you get feeling better soon. Be careful when carrying clothes baskets.

Love your pics of Morocco. So pretty!!

I knew when I did not see a post for a few days I knew that something must be up so then I found you.

Brooklynn became quite the little daredevil on the summer trip. I don't think there is any stopping her now!

They are predicting 2-3 inches of snow here by Monday, but usually when they predict that, we'll get one inch, maybe, so I'm no too worried. I don't want a snow day before Christmas break. We only have kids until half day Thursday, so we can make it just fine without wasting a snow day.

I sure hope you do get back to Disney World someday. I guess we really take it for granted, and we should be ashamed to gripe about not going enough when you have to go to such effort and expense to get there at all.

I hope you will enjoy the October pictures. Maybe you can transport yourself back to the wonderful aromas and sounds that go with the pictures, too.

Drew has had a cracked rib, and he said the pain will last around three weeks. I'm at one week today, so it should get better soon. Every once in a while, I'll turn a certain way and it makes me gasp for breath. For the most part, I'm just going about my business, and you would really notice anything, as I am not doubled over in pain or anything. It just hurts to lift or turn and such.

I guess Jill didn't have time to tell anyone she had started the report, and I know I didn't. I guess everyone will figure it out sooner or later, if they are interested. Plus, everybody is busy shopping, wrapping, partying, and such right now anyway.

After your comment on my FB photo, I had to "run" over here to see what happened to your rib.

I'm sorry! That sounds terrible. I hope it heals quickly. (Although, being a physical therapist, I know that those things are, um, lazy healers.)

How did your knee do in that fall?

Sorry - I just don't think either of us thought to send out invitations this time around. With things so busy, we didn't really think about it, so we just left it up to the end of the other report to send people this way. We are glad that our old friends can stand more, and we're happy to add new friends along the way.

I fell on my left side, so luckily my bad knee hasn't given me any trouble.

Lazy healers? Great.
Doing any kind of normal household chore is painful right now.
Maybe my Christmas gifts can be things like scrubbing the tub, moving things, mopping the floors, etc.


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



We are supposed to get snow and ice today - about 2 or 3 inches is what I saw, but it seems like they usually overdo it, so I'm guessing an inch. Enough to be pretty, but not enough to keep us from moving around if we need to. I think Jill is going to go on and leave Kentucky this morning and drive straight home. They were going to stop here to eat, but if the weather is bad, they need to get on out of this area. It's not supposed to do anything just a little further south, so they will be driving away from anything that comes.














Brooklynn looks so hot here.



Little girl, big paw.



I love you, Beast!



Then it was off to Japan.











Lucky kitties.



Jill and Brooklynn were going to get a pearl.



Brooklynn listens carefully.

Our CM was:













Both pearls.



The teenage boy in the background is less than thrilled with the pearl picking activity.



Now for some browsing.











Kidcot Station.
My school kids 'konnichiwa-ed' each other like crazy during our Japan unit.
They thought it was hysterical.



The taiko drummers serenaded us as we left the area.

Stay warm and safe today, MeMom! Three days ago they were saying we might get some snow, but I think it is just rain now. And wind. Enough nasty stuff to make us shiver, but nothing to play in.

Love the pictures of the girls with Belle and the Beast! So sweet!

Oh MeMom, I hope you heal quickly! Sounds like a very nasty fall!

I'm really hoping they are wrong about the snow we are supposed to get. They are talking snow/ice mix here and I really don't want that.

We've been really busy at my house preparing for Mom and Bob's visit. We are all so excited because we haven't seen them since June.

Looking forward to your October trip!

Good Sunday morning!

I hope you are staying warm and dry today. I agree with you, a snow day this close to break isn't a good thing. It rained here all day yesterday. We had plans to go to Busch Gardens for their Christmas displays. We still went-it rained on us the whole time but we still had a great time. It got me so excited for my trip coming up!

I loved your Belle and Beast pictures. I saw them, across the way, last June but Ellie and I had just waited for-ev-er for Marie and neither of us had it in us to walk all the way back over there and wait for them too.

Your pick a pearl CM is the same one we have had both times! She is quite animated. What did Jill do with the pearls? The first time we had Ellie's made into a ring. This time I bought the Cinderella carriage cages off of ebay.

Enjoyd the shopping in Japan this morning! We didn't really explore that store too much as it was getting late and only had time for pick-a-pearl. I really like the bag with the cats.

Poor little Brooklynn's face is so red! You can tell it was hot!

There are so many fun things to look at in that department store!

Super cute pics of the girls with Beauty and the Beast!

You should DEFINITELY ask for someone to do your housework for you for Christmas. The more you can avoid aggravating that rib, the better!

Yeah that teenager in the background does not look too thrilled.

Love looking around the Japan store.

MeMom what kind of car did you end up getting?

It is miserable here today. Foggy & raining (maybe sleet). A good day to be inside & dissing.

We got the rain but that big swirlie thing is bringing more back around. They are not calling for snow/ice here but they may be wrong.

Just a yucky morning.
