Okay, so finally all caught up on your TR. Love that you have so many awesome photos that it makes us feel like we are there with you. Plus it gets me so excited for my next trip! Bummer we will just miss each other by days.

Speaking of which, I hear the love bugs are out already. Ugh. I hope it's not too bad when we are there. I hate bugs.

Anyways, best quote ever...."Food. controls. my. life." I do believe that is my motto as well. I live by it. It's kinda ridiculous.

Oh, and I am now following you on Instagram now that I have a new phone! I can't wait to use it in Disney!

Loved your real life interlude update.

Alright! The new trip begins. Love all the in between Christmas updates. Very nice gingerbread house. LOVE the Pillsbury sugar cookies. Before Easter they had Lightning McQueen ones which we had several times. The Vera duffel bags were great gifts! Can't wait to see all the Christmas pics from Disney - really looking forward to it.

I know I have posted before on your other TR's and am not sure if I posted on this one but I love it! You are capturing two of my biggest obsessions in life Christmas and Disney! And I love that it is April and I am reading about Christmas activities so thank you! My husband and I have been contemplating a December weekend trip for a while now and your report is really making me want to book it today! Can't wait to read more!

So excited for this next TR! I'm sure actually being IN DISNEY for Christmas and New Years was fantastic! I love all your Christmas photos from home! Those Vera Bradley duffles are adorable!!! I really want the Hunchback of Notre Dame on DVD but I can't find it anywhere so I'm rather jealous that you have it, haha.

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you're here and enjoying! Thank you! Ahh you guys are going to have a magical trip! And I've been there in August many times. It's hot but it's not ridiculously bad. Just take time in the air conditioned store and at the pool. And get there early, take mid afternoon breaks, and go back to the parks at night. You'll be fine!
Thank you!

Can`t wait for your next update!
Ahh I can't wait to write it! I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

I haven't watched the Emporer's New Groove since I was in 2nd grade. I need to watch it soon! And AHH the Winnie the Pooh movie is SO cute! You have to watch it!

Thanks for reading!

I seriously CANNOT WAIT to read your next TR. You have definitely mastered the art of the TR that makes me miss "home" and so happy I could scream. All at the same time.
I haven't seen the actual show but it's my #1 must see show right now. Unfortunately it's not on Broadway right now and it's not coming here anytime soon. So I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO! Hopefully eventually. The quartet sounds amazing on the soundtrack though!

Aren't they AMAZING!? I never got to get all of the Disney ones they've been having because I don't have an oven at college to bake them! But I saw some Mickey Mother's Day ones yesterday that I will have to pick up to make when I get home soon!

I'm SO happy that you're so excited for the next portion! Aww thank you so much - that's such a wonderful compliment! I hope you continue to enjoy!

Your Christmas celebrations sound like they were a lot of fun, and I love how you're including all that info before starting the rest of the TR.

Looking forward to more!
Yay I'm so excited!

It really is. Ahh I have TONS of pictures from BLT to share with you all! And haha you will have to see...!

This was honestly the best Christmas of my entire life! I can't wait to write about it! And I'm glad you like that! I wanted to make sure you guys know the whole back story!

Thank you!

You girls look adorable in your "ugly' sweaters! I love those parties!

I cannot wait to read about your FREAKING AWESOME trip!
Christmas at the world would be soooo magical!!!
Thank you!

Yeah that was really great! That way I wasn't really scared when move-in day came along! It was a really easy transition!

Thank you! So do I!

I can't wait to tell about it! That was the most magical Christmas EVER!!!

So excited for this TR!!!!
Ahhh update soon please!!! I miss your updates!

Hahaha I came up with that on the spot. Clever, right? I'm glad you liked it. And haha your entire trip report is wham filled to the brim! I LOVE IT!

Walgreens is a dangerous place. They have SO MANY DISNEY THINGS.

Thank you! And thank you! I found them in the dollar section at Target back in like.. October.

Hahaha Deer are EVERYWHERE. I love them. I'm glad you associate me with deer. What an honor.

Yay I'm so glad! I'm sorry I fell so behind on your TR! I'm going to have to catch up soon! Aww thank you so much! That's such a nice compliment! That stinks that we're going to just miss each other! I would have loved to have a Dismeet!

Ewwwww are they!? Eww. I haven't had an experience with love bugs before so I hope they're not an issue.

HAHAHA that quote is so true. My schedules are planned around food. But hey, no one's mad.

Ahh yay! What's your instagram name!? I want to follow you back!

Thank you!

I absolutely LOVE reading your trip reports! There is nothing better then Disney at Christmas time, thats for sure! For the past 2 years, my boyfriend has gotten me an annual pass for Christmas..needless to say, he's a keeper! Now if he just gets the hints I've been dropping about being proposed to in Disney! I can not wait to read the rest of this trip report and the one about your trip coming up!

I am a faithful reader of your trip reports, even though I don't usually comment. However, I just HAD to comment on this one... as soon as I saw the sweaters, I knew you must have been going to an ugly sweater party! Although, I have to admit, for "ugly sweaters" those two really aren't all that ugly.

Anyway, you and your family are absolutely adorable, and I truly love reading your reports! You have a knack for drawing people in with your writing style - it's not forced or fake, and it's very enjoyable! Happily awaiting your next chapter...

made me laugh

we are planning our first disney christmas in december this year so naturally i was attracted to your report. Ive been following for a while but havent posted. but i have to tell you it made me laugh when you said going through security you got beeped and they had to do a hand swab! gahhh happens to me literally every time we travel. i get sweaty palms going through security and i know they can tell. but im glad to hear im not the only person this happens to Orlando, Philadelphia, Atlantic City - where ever we may be I get put in the box lol

I'm enjoying all of your tips. We are doing two firsts this year - Disney during Christmas with a baby he's due Aug 3rd and ive never planned disney with a baby before - not that he will be able to do much - but i feel all out of control and i always have disney under control. Your tips for christmas are making me excited tho! Can't wait to read more!

I just want to say how absolutely weird this is, because that's my name! I don't meet many people with that name so I always find it surreal when it's mentioned in reference to someone else, haha.

But I'm so excited to see the rest of your TR! Keep those Christmas pics coming!

OMG I CAN GET ON DISBOARDS AGAIN SO I'M CAUGHT UP. Turns out I wasn't actually far behind at all... hah.

In normal circumstances, if I got home from Disney and it was snowing, I'd be all like "AWWW HECK NO." BUT... in that situation, if I was going back so soon, and it was Christmas time, I would have probably been excited. Hooray!

YAY FOR TRIP NUMBER TWO!!! Ahhh so exciting. HAHAHA, my dad is the EXACT same way. He's all about the relaxation. He made me plan a day where he could just hang out at BLT. He was like, "I'll meet yall for the meals that day." Silly silly man. But he works hard so it's all good.

Sounds like an awesome few days in between trips!
