"Where's Jonah?" haha!! I love it!! I have a picture of me when I was somewhere in the range of Henry's age sitting right by that same little door. I should try to find it. Then I have one of me again when I was 15 with some intense eyebrows sitting by it with my cousin. Ah... memories.

I had a feeling you were going to write that he was scared on those other rides, because I remember that stage....they go from toddlers riding thrill rides to being scared on sedate rides.

Seeing people in those circus train cars looks like a hoot!

I can't beleive Henry is afraid of everything...but then again I can, because Claire has gone through phases like that too.

I love your pillowcase and FE...you made it yourself? I am so not talented like that.

Althought Kadence is still got some scaredy cat-ness in her. she is getting way better. I've got her convinced that EE is the same as BTMR! Hopfully she not kill me after the ride is over...

I can see how that whales mouth would be a bit much for younger kiddos. Especially, knowing the story of Jonah.

I do like the bathroom doors! Very cute!

It was super fun meeting Joe, Henry and you when you were here in DC! Hope to see you all again soon.

Poor Henry!

The bathrooms are cute! I love Disneyland's Fantasyland.

Your FE and pillowcase are adorable!

I'll keep you guys in my prayers. I hope that you find the apartment that fits your needs and is in a great location.

I know that you are super excited about the cruise! I've been getting some great tips on my pre-trip report from people who have been on cruises before.

I really enjoyed the Disneyland installment. I remember the age when Hunter wasn't quite sure if he liked an attraction or not. We could always tell if he "really" liked it by asking if he was ready to get back on it again. If he said "not right now", then we knew he liked it but was a little scared.

Your life is so exciting with all the changes and trips. I hope everything works out just like it should.

Henry is just so super cute. I love all the questions he asks. Such an inquiring mind.

Love the updates. Disneyland is just so different from the World. The CMs sound very similar to those at Paris, they just dont get themeing and being in character.

Teacups with no lids - whats that all about, doesnt it rain in Disneyland?

I'm so surprised that Henry is suddenly afraid of so many rides! I've always thought that being scared of rides happens more to kids who are new to Disney, not kids who have gone on rides since they were babies.

All those trips sound awesome, especially the cruise!

Oh my goodness, Brook!!! I am going to have nightmares tonight thinking about 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!!!

I seriously remember it from waaay back when (when I was 5 actually) and I was terrified! I am scared to death of drowning, so submarines are just NOT for me! I completely understand why Henry wasn't sure about it -- honestly I'm not sure I could even get into one of those things without having a panic attack! I totally give him credit for riding Nemo! He's braver than this girl!!!

I love seeing your pics of Storybook Land!!! From the DL TR's I've read, Storybook Land & ToonTown look like my two favs!!!

Neat bathrooms! I like the pretty lights in there! Very Alice!!!

Going to read your blog now about your D.C. trip!!! (I haven't been since the late 90's so I'm excited to see how its changed!)

Good luck with the move & the search for a new apt (and doors!)!!! I can't even begin to imagine how hard it must be to find something in NY!!! I know we had a heck of a time selling our old house and buying our new one -- and there isn't much of a demand around here! I would be all nerves worrying about it!!! When I read your post about the move, Joe's new job, Henry going to a new school, etc. I just thought your attitude about it all is truly amazing!!! You're such a positive person regardless of whats going on around you! I will pray that you find a place that is perfect for you guys!!!

Good luck on the apartment hunt. I can't even imagine. I watch selling New York on HG TV all the time and it's scary. So I said a little prayer for you.

I also feel for you as far as schools. I know that it isn't nearly as hard as it is in my town. But I know how hard it was for us deciding on where to send Logan and whether we stay in our smaller home and send him to a private school or what do we do. I really think we made the best choice and I know that if you do your research (which I know you will do) and then say a little prayer then what is best is what will happen for you guys. The right school can mean so much and I'm so grateful for the school that we picked. In fact, get this, Logan had an actual sleepover at his school. We dropped him off at 6pm on Friday and picked him the next morning at 8am. There aren't many kindergarten teachers out there that would do something like that. So I wish for you to find the best school for Henry and for you guys as a family.

I have to comment on the life update first - Did you say you DON't have a door on your bedroom? How will Henry ever have a little brother or sister with that arrangement? You must get that corrected.

I started reading you DC blog and your trip sounds great. It has given me so many ideas because I really want to visit there soon (its been far too long).

The cruise plans sound awesome! That is going to be so fun. I love how you have your plans all figured out.

I hope things work out well with Joe's job and your new apartment search and Henry's school. I can believe school is such a stress in NYC. Sounds not fun!
