Catching up on the thread a bit this morning, coffee in hand as I look through the pines at a serene Bay Lake...

Maria...awesome photo of your furry friends! Perfect for the season!

Those of you who have been down here at this time of year are used to seeing the parks look a bit crowded...



You know it's crowded when Great Movie Ride has a 60 minute wait...nothing like watching that Fantasia trailer 5 times while in line!!!


So when it's crowded, it's always fun to try new adventures. DW & I have taken the Segway tour before, but this was a Christmas surprise for my daughters. We had a great time, and the tour is better than ever!




I'll try to post a few more pictures if I can pry the media card reader away from my daughter who is posting pictures up on Facebook!

Take care, Groupies!!

You'll be fine. We've been there on January 8 or so and the decorations are still up. You'll see the Lodge in all its holiday splendor!


Jimmy...when Gary Sinise was first introduced, they listed his credits including his latest role on CSI-NY. And someone in the crowd shouted out "Lt. Dan!!". Gary looked angry for a second and said "Who said that?". Then he smiled and the crowd had a good laugh.

We saw Gary Sinise as narrator our last Christmas trip in 2006. He had been doing Christmas Eve and Christmas for several years, and then he stopped in 2008 (this was his own story he told). But now he is back and obviously in very good graces with Disney as he was given back his times right before Christmas again. He does a good job, as I imagine every narrator does for this wonderful celebration.

Thats funny, I would have loved to been there to witness it. He seems like such a good guy, a positive influence in a otherwise not so positive environment.

Gary is wonderful doing the CP...we saw Whoopie this year and she was good, but I think Gary is better! Almost worth a trip just for that CP on Christmas Eve!

Hello Groupies from the beautiful Eclipse.

We have had a most wonderful cruise, still are in fact (until Sat).

The weather has been wonderful, food pretty darn good food and lots of fun passengers playing lots of trivia.

I can't read back (they gave us 180 minutes but this computer is s-l-o-w as molasses), but will when we return on Saturday.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did.

Hugs, Muush

Look at who moved in during our Christmas snow storm!

DH needed to adjust the wiper blade and was quite surprised when he opened the hood and found this guy.







We tried to shoo him out and at first he just moved down further. DH thought we ought to start the truck but I was a little worried about him being close to moving parts although DH had it running before he saw the critter. Then I saw where he had done nibbling in an attempt to expand his new house and worried a little less. Bad Bunny! I think he may have gotten a ride to the snowblower repair dealer. It's similar to how my niece ended up with a kitten several years ago that hitched a ride home with her step dad. Now that may be one of the most spoiled kitties ever.

Jimmy...you would have really enjoyed Sinise I'm sure. He referenced the troops a couple of times and at the end had all current members of the armed forces and veterans stand up for everyone to give them a heart felt round of applause. Gary Sinise also is actively involved in ensuring disabled veteran rights.


I didn't realize that someone had recorded some of Sinise's remarks the night we were there...here's a YouTube link that's about a minute long from that evening.


Gary Sinise Candlelight Processional Closing Remarks


Kathy...that's a pretty wild sight you opened your hood to see. I guess any port in a storm!
