Continuation of Our HS Day

It was time for the Jedi School to begin,so it was on to gather in front of the stage. Here is our little Padwan now.





She is reciting the Jedi Knight oath.



Learning to use the light saber, one need's to pay close attention to the Jedi Master.



My brave Jedi warrior in training in her Princess dress wearing the matching butterfly earrings! Who says one can't be feminine & feisty at the same time?!



I'd say that she is having a great time.This girl is getting her bedroom madeover with Star Wars stuff for Christmas!



This was the Jedi Master, he was a real hoot, quite funny. Emily is getting ready to do battle with her nemisis, Darth Vadar! OOOHHH, scary!

Let The Battle Begin!

At last, face to face with the ultimate villian, old Darth himself!



Hit him low with the light saber.



Aim high this time!



Duck down when Darth swings his light saber! Don'twantyour head cut off!



The last swish in their duel,she sent Lord Vader packing!



The young Padwan has become a full fledged Jedi Knight. As such she is receiving her diploma. Congratulations young Jedi!





After her battle, Emily had her turn on the Racer.



On our way I decided to have my first ever Mickey Bar! Wow am I ever mad those things are the best ever! I loved every bite & had two more before the end of our vacation!



We decided to have lunch before we left HS. Since it was close to us & seemed a likely place, we stopped at Fairfax Fare. Never again will we eat there! The food was okay, salads & sandwiches, but the service was the worst in the entire WDW. Bob was so appalled that management allowed such slow service. The CMs would take the order then fill it one item at a time. This would mean walking across the kitchen to get one item, them back across to get another. There were more than a few angry peole in that line I can tell you!



After our lunch we decided that it was time to leave. We wanted to do a bit of shopping in HS on the wasy out. Kelly & Emily decided that shopping was not for them. So they each got a bag of gummy worms with their snack credit.



They looked cute & lady like sitting there enjoying their snacks.



Now that Vader has been vanquished, it is time to begin our way out, but first some shopping.




We decided to go to Downtown Disney for a couple of hours before we had to be at the Coral Reef for dinner.

Anne & Emily on the bus, I'm in the back with Kelly having a chat!





Next stop DD! The Lego Store was our destination!







These things fascinate me, I'm lucky to build a box with Legos, let alone one of these statues!

Bob & I decided that we were going to eat lunch here after Anne & the girls went home. We like to laze around & dine by watersides on our vacations.



We were now going to Epcot for our 5:30 ADR at Coral Reef. This was to be another first for us. It would also be the scene of Grandmama's meltdown!


You will have to wait for my next update, unwrapped Christmas gifts are calling me at the moment!

So glad Darth was defeated by that cute little Jedi!
We have never eaten at Fairfax, we stick to Starring Rolls.

Can't wait to hear about your meltdown....

Well went out today to finish up some Christmas things, when sitting at a traffic light, Kabam! We were rear ended. The woman that hit us was going pretty fast & that was a big bang. Our heads snapped back, thank God for headrests. I had a headache that lasted well over an hour! The woman was elderly & quite confused & since she hit our pick up her car sustained more damage. At least no real bodily harm was done. Our poor dog was with us, scared the crap out of him.

Want to wish all my readers & all the Disers a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!!

Doris

Wow, i must have missed an update! Love the Jedi training and the lego store! Star Wars and Legos. Two of me and DS's favorite things.

I'm glad you were OK after the accident. I hope it didn't spoil your holiday too much!

Santa was very good to me, hope he was as good to you!

Happy Festivus to everyone!

Hi Doris -

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. I was just stopping by to see what I had missed.

I did take some cell phone pictures when I toured the historic houses in Odessa Delaware before Christmas. When I get a chance I'll have to post some for you to see.

This really was a little treasure literally right in my backyard (5 miles away) and I can't believe I haven't toured the houses in well over 10 years. It was lovely and the best part - Picture were allowed!

Some of the houses are private residences (including one house owned by my old neighbor - that was fun) and others are owned by Winterthur. It was a lovely day. I thought about you a lot during my tour!

Wow, how awful about the rear ender. I hope everything was fixed easily and you aren'ttoo sore. I was rear ended once and thought nothing of it and the next day I could barely move.

Real Life

A quick update about our accident, we are being inudated by calls & mail from lawyers & chiropractors. It seems that they troll the daily accident reports & start calling. The police report stated that there might be an injury, so the feeding frenzy is on!! A real eye opener for sure.

I thought that I would post a picture Wicket of whom I am mother of! He was wearing his Santa hat & beard.





I will be updating real soon, life has been quite hectic of late.
