I already do chocolate dipped marshmallow for holidays ... heaven help my waistline if I ever figure out the caramel part successfully.

Oh you know what? I had that also. .. and yes it is VERY good. I am not a marshmallow lover at all, but *that* was pretty darn good! I also can’t say it helped my waistline either, but I sure enjoyed every minute!!

PHXscuba, Flitterific, lapdwife, Sue, Halloweenqueen, amamax2 and anyone else I am forgetting who welcomed me back or commented on Photobucket - yes, it takes a million years to load 1600 photos to Photobucket!! My PC is ancient and Photobucket is sllloooooowww. That is not a good mix! I have gotten 1200 of the photos loaded so far, but that took all day yesterday and part of today, while I am trying to rest and/or do other things. I've been super busy as well as sick so everything is annoying me!!

As KCMike says, just keep shooting. So many of my 1600 photos are just similar versions of the first photo. I kept taking multiple shots to make sure I came up with at least one or two decent ones. So I won't be posting all of the 1600 photos on the DIS because many of them are useless!

By the way, I should pat myself on the back for having the foresight to change my DLR dates to earlier in December this year. If I had followed the same pattern as when I went to DLR for the last 3 years, I would have ended up there this weekend - in all of the rain. Yes, the crowds would have been non-existent, but I would have been a drenched mess and would not have been able to get on a roll with the pictures. So I'm glad I went when I did - even though it was almost 90 degrees on the first day or two, and not very Christmasy!


Oh, and when I got my peppermint ice cream at DLR, I had planned on getting it in the chocolate-covered holiday cone with red and green sprinkles, like what they showed on Guy Fieri's special...UNTIL I noticed that Gibson Girl also had a holiday cone covered in crushed candy cane pieces!!! So I ate my peppermint ice cream in a cone encrusted in peppermint bits! YUM!! (And then I almost had a disaster on Main Street that would have involved my cone spilling on the ground and my camera shattering into a million pieces, as well as knocking a trash can over in the process...but I narrowly avoided that mishap and it all worked out.)

You already have it more than half way figured out. I do have a caramel recipe I use for caramel popcorn balls I make for the fall. If you wish to have it, I'll be happy to send it off to you.

Hi Everyone, My son and I just got back from our last minute shopping trip to REI. Bought new rain resistant shoes for Attila, Rain pancho's for the both of us. Water repelant to put on my UGG type boots. We are now ready for face Disneyland in the rain. We will use the hotels dryers every night to dry out our clothes for the next day. We will drinking lots of hot apple cider to stay warm in side as well. Our plane leaves tomorrow evening.

So off we go. Will report how it turned out when we get back.

I feel for everyone in the rain this week. On the other hand, with all the rain now, I feel the chances for rain are low for our trip on the 28th. But you never know.

For our July 2009 trip, our package came with four unique souvenir park hoppers so everyone was assigned a card. This year, our park hoppers are all the same - it's a cute Mickey card, but still identical. Should we mark each one so we each use the same card everyday? Or does it even matter who uses each card each day - they are all adult tickets.

So, our Christmas cards finally made it to their recipients! So, now I'm sharing them with everyone! They're printed on Pearl paper...that's why it's a bit sparkly.

This is the original file:



And here's a couple snapshots of it ready to be sent out:

Wow! This card is incredible!! Did you design it all yourself? I love it and it looks like you had a great trip, too.

What a fantastic job on your Christmas cards, uneekstylez. I love that you had the candy cane "California" letters. What a way to remember them since this year is their last appearance.

I finally got to use my new camera at night!





We don't go visit the princesses, guess we've been missing out. So cute!

Hi Disgram! In order to share your pictures, you will need to create an account on a photo-sharing site (i.e. there are a lot of free ones such as Photobucket, Flickr) and upload your pictures there. Once you upload your pictures, there should be options there to share your photos and you can copy the URL that they have to share photos on bulletin boards (it's the one with IMG in the link). Good luck!

Eek...you're still sick? Hope you feel better soon I've been sick on and off since I returned from our Thanksgiving trip (I think it's DLR withdrawal blame DBF for taking me away from the mouse ).

And it sounds like you have quite a story involving your ice cream cone...do share
