... Did she fly on her own? I would find that terrifying!

... Out of interest, what exactly are cookies in the US? Here we have ‘chocolate chip cookies’ and the like, but for most things we say ‘biscuits’. Although don’t you have a different meaning for that, too? I have a little guidebook of language in America, and things like ‘biscuit’ and ‘scone’ mean completely different things, apparently!

Oh, I have heard of Baltimore! It is quite well known here, and apparently a good place to visit. I’m not quite sure where it is though, lol. Reba’s sister is married to your cousin? Small world, right? Sounds like you and your family are all very close, and get on really well most of the time! That must be nice.
The place in Michigan we went to was about a 4 1/2 hour drive for us from our house in central Ohio, roughly the same as the drive from London to Edinburgh. It was somewhat cold our first night there, around 2 celcius. Brrr. But a weather front moved through and it was a little warmer the next day around 10 celcius if I remember correctly.

Yes, I did get some decorations. I'm so happy with them, I'm going to put my tree up early this year.

Don't forget the west coast has the original Disneyland! Not a bad place for a vacation, I'm sure.

Gwyneth did fly on her own. That was her second solo flight. However the first time, I got the airline to escort her. This time she felt like an old hand at it. ;p

Our cookies are the same as your biscuits. We make all kinds, chocolate chip and every thing else too. I guess I'll have to do some experimenting this year and see what I can do with converting some of my recipes to using gluten free flour alternatives. I just wasn't up to it last year for the holidays so we did a cookie-free holiday.

Baltimore is a cool place to visit. You'll have to look in an atlas. I didn't really like living in Maryland though. I do get on well with my cousin who still lives there and his wife and her sister. Gives me a smile when I think of introducing him to the sisters, considering how nicely it has worked out for him.

Here is a link for my Mom's favorite place to take kids site-seeing in Baltimore. (My mom grew up in Baltimore.)

Hey, this is Gwyn, my mom suggested I make an account.
Reba's baby is only three weeks old. Chuckie Cheese's is kind of a cross between a resturant and an arcade I guess (sorry I'm really bad at explaining things) you can get pizza and get tokens to play games and stuff like that it was really fun.
Yup I can make nacho's completely by scratch but we just bought some nacho chips and baked them in the oven with cheese and chicken so yummy. I used to be pretty good but a couple years went by that I didn't bake hardly at all and now I mess up all the time all well I guess it's not a big deal right now if I can't bake since my mom can't have gluten anyways, but I'm going to try to make a pie for thanksgiving this year .
Yeah it was a lot of fun, I love to travel.

Oh, 4 1/2 hours isn't too far! I thought Michigan and Ohio were further apart. I really ought to get to know the states more! 2 degrees celcius is cold! Almost freezing temperature! Thanks for using celcius- I am hopeless at using farenheit! I don't understand it at all. At least nowadays there are conversion things on the internet!

Isn't it bad luck to put up your tree early? Oh or take it down late? I'm hopeless with facts. Do you have a real tree? We used to have an artificial one, but real ones are so much nicer- and I love their smell.

Oh yes- Disneyland! Have you ever been there? I think there's one park. I've looked into prices... ... let's just say it's expensive.

I didn't even know under 15s were allowed to fly on their own- I thought you had to be escorted until you were 16. Obviously Gwyneth is braver than me! I can barely get the bus. I have been on the train on my own a lot though- except today they weren't running properly- again! People keep stealing wires from the tracks or something. So annoying!

Definately try cooking gluten free! It will make your Christmas more 'Christmassy'! Whoever heard of a Christmas without gingerbread biscuits and cookies? Do you have mince pies in the US for Christmas? Sorry if that sounds silly- but I know you don't have all the same things as us. Apparently you guys don't have Christmas crackers either!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christmas_cracker

Speaking of that, I have also heard you don't have chocolate eggs at Easter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ch...Easter_egg.jpg

Thanks for the link! Baltimore does look good fun! Why didn't you like Maryland much? Is it really different to Ohio? At least you get to visit and see your family!

Hi Gwyn! Love your username!
Oh, 3 weeks is very young. I hear it's getting cold on the east coast- apparently there was lots of early snow recently.
Oh, whoops- I assumed from it's name that it had something to do with cheese! That sounds fun playing games while you eat and stuff. We don't have stuff like that here.
I've never tasted nachos. Do they taste like crisps?
Maybe you'll get better at cooking again! Practice makes perfect! You will get a chance to make gluten free cookies at Christmas though, with your mum!
Oh yes, thanksgiving! When is thanksgiving? I thought it was mid November- but that's already gone by!

Epcot and Lunch at Chefs de France!

Hello everyone! Back to the TR!

After our breakfast at Boma, we headed over to Epcot. We got there at about 10am I think.



We got a FP for Soarin' I think, and after that we decided to head over to Test Track and see what the wait was.



However it was quite long. It said a 50 minute wait- and we all queued up. I didn't want to wait that long though. I took Rory off to WS to look at the countries. We signed up for the Kim Possible mission but never actually did it- much to Rory's disappointment! We got to WS at about ten to eleven. Maelstrom was opening at 11am, so we got in with a 10 minute wait. It was really busy the rest of the day, so I was glad we did it! It's such a cute little ride! We managed to get to China and Germany too, and did a Kidcot. By then, my parents and Willum had been on Test Track and we met up at Soarin'. They had actually queued for an hour and a half! Eeek.

After we had ridden Soarin', we headed over to WS for our ADR at Chefs de France. We looked around beforehand.













Such a pretty 'country'! Anyway, Chefs de France was really busy, but we got let in eventually.

Lunch at Les Chefs de France



We were all very hungry, and couldn't wait to eat. Our waitress was quite friendly too.







Here is the food we had. It was yummy- especially the onion soup! Definately try it- seriously!





Kids' appetizer:



Our entrees: (Sorry for the ones that have been slightly eaten!)



Kids' entree:



and...







Remy came along- but his friend thought we wanted his photo:



Then- Remy!



We used to be big fans of the movie when Rory was younger (we still are!) so meeting Remy was pretty awesome!

Of course, someone walking past seemed to be interested in little Remy...



After that, we left the restaurant and went on with our day at Epcot.

Definately try Chefs de France if you haven't before. We will consider it when we return to WDW, but there are so many restaurants in Epcot that we may want to try a different one.

If you have Remy fans- do go! We got in at about 1pm and he came out soon after.

Thanks for reading- see you soon!

Megan

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Just to say...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

What's everyone doing to celebrate?

I have never celebrated it in my life, although I wish I had. I told my friends today it was Thanksgiving and they got cross with me and told me there was no WAY is was Thanksgiving!!! Urmmmmmm?!

Here in the UK there are no signs to show that it is Thanksgiving. It just isn't done here at all! Sometimes I REALLY wish I lived in America! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to wait until the 25th December for some festive fun and turkey!

(Sorry if I have got the dates wrong and it isn't Thanksgiving at all!)

I'll post some photographs of what I have been doing this Thanksgiving day later. Nearly 7pm and I'm exhausted!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everyone,

Megan

And Happy Thanksgiving to you, Meggie Beth! We had a really good day. But I had a bunch of details in the message I sent you and some in the post I put on eat at home thread yesterday. So you'll have to read those. tehehehe. I hope you are going to eat something turkey just to participate a little, even if just a turkey sandwich! You can close your eyes and say to yourself, this is my Thanksgiving leftovers!

Hello there! It's really nice to hear from you!

Thank goodness I actually got the date right! I wasn't sure if it was a fixed date every year or different dates like Easter.

That sounds so nice- watching movies, cooking, hanging out.... I hope you had a great day! I love this time of year too... Just a bit cold for my liking! What's the weather like where you are? I've heard it's reasonably warm most of the year.

Aww, thanks! I love thanksgiving even though I've never actually celebrated it. I still love wishing everyone that does celebrate it a happy day though! I've never had the opportunity before though, so it's nice!

Looking forward to Christmas? Everyone's getting excited here! I'm casually looking on the Disney Store and Amazon for any Disney things I can ask for. less than a month now!

Say hi to your family for me!
-Meg

Hello there! It's great you had a good day! I've read your message- sounds like the parade was great fun! That is something I would love to see- I'll have to look it up on YouTube. Sound like you were busy cooking too! A great excuse to cook something more 'special'.

I have almost finished replying to the message- so hopefully you'll actually get it tomorrow! I've been quite ill since Thanksgiving but I'm mostly better now- thank goodness! I'll check out the posts you put up tomorrow hopefully! It's almost midnight here... And I'm not even tired. I think I'd better go to bed soon to avoid falling asleep at school tomorrow!

Hehe- turkey is pretty expensive- but I'm sure they must sell it sliced like ham. Turns out we aren't having turkey at all this year- we are going up to Scotland and spending Christmas with my grandmother. I think she's planning steak. so you will have to enjoy your turkey for me- lol. I thought you guys didn't have turkey at Christmas- only thanksgiving. Can't wait till Christmas- haven't spent it in Scotland for 10 years- so it will be great. I'm pretty sure you must have your Christmas tree up by now- with those lovely decorations you bought on your weekend away.

Aww, I'm glad you are feeling better now.

Hehe, steak for Christmas. Yeah, here most people do turkey for Thanksgiving, but not all. Some families also do turkey for Christmas but not nearly as many. Some families do a big ham for x-mas and others just have there own special family traditional meal. My husband's family was military and stationed in Germany for most of his childhood and they do Bratwurst for Christmas. I've done just about everything under the sun for that meal, myself. We are overdue to buy some pork for the freezer so I guess I'll have a nice ham that comes with that deal, once I get in touch with the farmer and put in my order. I really need to get on that!

Yep, my tree is up now. And I took pics of the ornaments on it tonight.

OK, I'm going to go learn how to download pics from my camera and maybe even do stuff with 'em online. ... or I'll get my daughter to do.

OK, after spending way too much time on this photobucket thing...

I have a bunch of stuff uploaded and separated out into three or more different albums. Some of the Christmas ornament pics have comments added to tell where they were purchased or if they are a "favorite" or what have you.

There is still LOTS to do with the pics I downloaded from my camera to my computer. So DD14's recent trip pics are not there yet. Hopefully I'll actually getting around to doing it all at some point.

So I'll try giving you a link to one of the pics or to the album. Let me know if you are able to use the link and if you can see everything else too. I know I have my albums marked as "public" currently, but I'm basically ignorant of how it all works beyond that.

http://s51.photobucket.com/albums/f3...rrent=1038.jpg

They don't all have notes and I was working from the back to the front for some reason so more of the later ones have them.

Oh- I didn't know that you had whatever you liked for Christmas in the US. You are expected here to have turkey. What is bratwurst? I'm not good at German, lol. Ham sounds delicious! Better order it! Surely everything gets booked up.

Yay! I wish our tree was up already. My parents put it off, mainly because they don't like buying the tree! We definately need new decorations, so I'm going to persuade my parents to get some... I don't think we'll get to Bavarian Inn though.

Yeah- go for it! It's easy once you get the hang of it! Although I have to admit it is pretty confusing at first.

Great photos! So nice! I love your Christmas tree- so many pretty and unique decorations!
I've gotten through half the album- lots of photos and descriptions!
Your dog is adorable! I didn't know you had a poodle!
I love the Stitch decoration! I didn't know you'd been to WDW at Christmas! I really want to go there that time.
I have commented on some of them, lol.
I also looked at your Quilting album... I hope you don't mind. You're all so good at it! Gwyneth and Anneliese look very similar, lol.
You should definately put up the photos from Gwyneth's trip when you have time! Have you tried editing your photos on photobucket? You should- its so easy and fun!

Bratwurst is a German sausage traditionally made from a blend of pork and veal and served with sauerkraut and potato salad. I don't know that DH's family does the potato salad but they do serve good sauerkraut and crusty rolls with theirs. mmm. DH just leaned over and looked and said, "We do potato dumplings, the really bad cheap ones because those are the best!"

Yep a tiny little toy poodle.

We went in the early part of December and there were such light crowds that my kids kept wondering what the mazes in front of the rides were for. I would highly recommend that timing to anyone as a great time for a trip!

I don't mind people looking at my other albums. I love the bears album, but its probably boring for other people since its pretty repetitive. Its fun for me because we got to be right there with the bears. Definitely a "favorite" kind of experience. That's the funny thing about public photo bucket albums you get to kind of nose around in someone else's stuff.

Mmmmm... sounds nice! Sausages are delicious. Aren't the Germans very famous for sausages? Oh yes, I forgot your DH was from Germany! (He is... isn't he? ) You must've gotten to cook lots of nice German foods! Delicious- cheap potato dumplings! I've never had them before but they actually do look very tasty.

Awww- it's adorable! I thought all poodles were quite big- similar to the size of my labrador. We have met a few poodles on walks and they look a lot bigger than yours. Does your dog get on with other dogs? My dog is way too friendly... and he reminds me of Marley from 'Marley and Me'.

That sounds great! I would love to go in December. You must have had a great trip! What was the weather like? Living in a country where you can't get a nice, warm summer... my parents would probably want to go at a warmer time. I was thinking of going at the end of October for nearly three weeks so we catch some of the decorations at WDW. Although sadly that doesn't look possible at the moment. Maybe we could go some place else on the East coast... But during summer of course.

Oh, that's good. Just checked out the bear album. It looks like a pretty good experience! How close did you get to them? I have heard they are very violent... I couldn't go very near one. But then again I have never had that opportunity before. You're very lucky! Was that in Ohio or on holiday somewhere?

Yeah... I agree! Sometimes looking at other peoples photos is very interesting. I didn't know you could actually do that on Photobucket- but now I know it's great!
