Guess it just depends what food and where.

I'm not a big eater. I eat all day, but small portions throughout. So the big portions get wasted on me.

We ate at the Cheesecake Factory recently. I got a Margarheta flat bread off their small bites menu and I was filled with that. One bite of someone's cheesecake and I was good to go!
I guess it is where you eat in the parks. I have been looking at what I call the food porn on the DLR side and some of the places have some huge servings.

Yes! We are very pleased with the GC!

It was such a chore to get them to pose for a picture. Seems it never fails when one is smiling nicely the other is acting goofy. It's so hard to get them both smiling at the same time. They can both get silly.

love the "fish" Grumpy caught!

that funnel cake is huge - would be way to much for me too!
The Feb trip is a quicky. It's been planned since Oct. It's a 2 nighter. Happily got a passholder discount for that too. I think it was around $53/night!

The May trip was still more than I like to pay. $128 for weeknight and $146 for weekend night. But it is still less than we paid last May. I found an old receipt from years ago for CSR, this passholder rate is way less than we paid back then.

As long as Disney doesn't start doing what the icecream companies and soda companies have been doing. Charging the same price as usual, but changing portion size smaller. At least with the school bread, they tried to do this. But with the complaints they lowered the price a bit. The old bread was bigger and made fresh. The new bread is smaller and not made there fresh, I think it's contracted in.

Or my personal favorite raise the price and lower the portion.

how cool about the gc!

Love the pics of the boys. They look so happy in front of that tree.

The pumpkin funnel cake reference made me actually scoff out loud. I could not find things like that while were were there. A year of planning and you would have thought I would be better prepared...sadly.. no pumpkin funnel cake for me.

Did you have much luck at the other college campus?

I am going to miss that funnel cake. I wonder if they have seasonal funnel cakes the rest of the year. I learned about them on MickeyNikki's live TR. Bummer you didn't see them.

We didn't have luck that day. But he and my dh went on a tour another dayand they really liked it. He applied and was accepted. Still applying to a few more.

Photopass pics from our 2nd night. This ended up being our only park time of the trip. So sad that the photopass photographer didn't get the topiaries. She even told us to move a little this way and I thought for sure she got them. Instead I think she was trying to get the big tree.

He is doing much better. He just woke up so I had lots of time to catch up! So far Goofy and Grumpy have escaped getting sick!

The pics are great!

I hope you feel better soon. It is never fun to be sick...somehow moms just don't get to take the down time they need.

Glad that Anakin is feeling better though.

Thanks! I feel better today than yesterday.

I got my hair cut on Jan 5th. I really like the new cut (an angled bob) way better than the long hair. It's kind of strange to see the pictures.

Hopefully by the Feb trip I will shed all the pounds I've put on this year. I see the pictures of us and I just don't look like me. I think I'll go back to taking the pics instead of being in them until I reach my goal weight. Even using Lisa's pointers for picture posing, I've gained too much to hide it. Went back on weight watchers. Down 3!!
