Those pictures are hilarious!! That is something my family would do too. In fact, we just all got together a couple of weekends ago to do family pictures and some of ours looked like that, though not exactly licking each other.

I've never been to Sci-Fi, but it does look interesting. How was the Red Velvet Cheesecake, it doesn't look like how I would think, but sounds yummy!

I am sitting here, holding on to my chair, to prevent me from I love you guys...you crack me up...you have so much fun together.

I agree with you...the food may not be gourmet at Sci Fi (but better than a lot of other places), yet the atmosphere can't be beat.

Licking someone is totally what my mom's husband would have done (back when he wasn't a jerk). This is one of the reasons why I love reading your TR, always so much fun and silliness.

Face licking aside , those pictures are great! You guys all take such nice pictures. Great detail pictures of HS.

Your sandwich looks yummy.

Back to Tennessee for Thanksgiving. I will certainly be praying that you don't get stuck in the traffic from hell again.

Could you give mama a scooter rental as a Christmas present? Would she accept it then? I hope she is able to go with you.

Funny pictures!!! You guys are so much fun! Isn't that the way a WDW trip should be?

I hope your Mama can find a way to go with you and enjoy the trip too. I like MEK's idea of the scooter rental as a gift!

You went to my two fave shops. Well, one that used to be a fave. I love the animators shop. I always get my one big souvie there. Of course, I can't afford the really good ones either. And the Writer's Stop used to be my fave when they actually sold writer's stuff like pens, journals and port folios. I used to buy a new pen and journal every year. But now they don't sell anything like that anymore.

Heck yeah! Those crazy little things like face licking are what make for fun memories.

I'm sure that the subject of a scooter/wheelchair will come up while we are driving to Tennessee. We'll see.

Aww, thanks! The sandwich was very good but John's steak was just so-so.

I immediately thought of you when we were talking about taking the trolley from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg. We're going to **** Gatlinburg!

My Mama is one of the biggest procrastinators I have ever seen in my life. Maybe procrastinator isn't the right word. She worries so much that she's always afraid that something will happen that will make her cancel the trip so I'm thinking that she'd not want us to rent the scooter so far ahead of time.

To say that we are happy that Jesse fits in so well with this group of nuts is an understatement. Can you imagine if he didn't act just as crazy? He'd probably run for the hills.

I love those kind of family photos! Click on the link below and scroll down until you see our "crazy" family photo. We are such nuts!

The red velvet cheesecake was delicious! I was so full that I couldn't eat it all.

We haven't been to Sci-Fi in FOREVER. I really want to go back, DF has never been, and he LOVES those old school movie clips. I know he'd love the movie reel they have there!

You know...now that you mention it, I don't remember seeing anything that had to do with writing (pens, paper, journals, etc.) in Writer's Stop. What's up with that?

As I said, Sci-Fi isn't really about the food, it's more about the atmosphere. So, if Wingnut likes old school movie clips, you two should eat there at least once.

I couldn't believe how much I liked Tower of Terror after I rode it the firs time. Especially since I'm so scared of heights.

I never noticed Steven Tyler's scarf with the Hidden Mickeys either!

I am also stunned that you haven't seen the Star Wars movies! I saw the first Star Wars movie (which is actually the fourth movie, but Whatever!) when it came out with all the hype. I didn't really appreciate it the first time I saw it but it really is a great movie series.

I'm wondering how much of the details in the queue and Star Tours attraction you appreciate without having seen the movies. May the Force Be With You, Lisa, and watch some of those movies if you get the chance!

I'm with you on the Muppets, though. Love them! I also giggle along with MissLiz when Sam Eagle salutes "All" Nations

I'm so glad John talked you into braving ToT on a previous trip!

Pretty Please with Coffee on Top would totally work with me!
We are all counting down the days until we are in Tennessee giving Jesse and Lacey big old bear hugs!

What little I know about Star Wars come from the things that Hunter has told me. I do know who the main characters are but don't always know their names. Wanna know another secret? John's never seen the Star Wars movies either.

John IS a pretty great time isn't it. One of the things that really tick me off are rude people especially at the happiest place on Earth. We took Mama out to eat Saturday night and we were talking about how rude people are now-a-days. They have no manners whatsoever.

Kudos to you for tyring to take a picture on TOT. I am never that brave. Love the elevator picture! You got a lot accomplished!
I was ready to go see Kermie Wormie!

I don't see how people take those awesome pictures out the window on TOT. I'm always hanging on for dear life at that point of the ride.

It was a very good deal! I was out $2.98 for the bleach but I got a day off out of the deal.

We'll see how Mama does on the Tennessee trip and then she'll decide on what to do about going to Disney.

The Muppets is cute but I wish they would update it. The pre-show is so long too. Not a must for me. But it is very cute.
Yep that is a Stormtrooper. I have seen it enough times for all of us. Trust me. LOL
Bummer that RNRR was down.
I was surprised at how good the shrimp were. Well, good for not coming from Louisiana where we like our shrimp spicy.

They updated Muppets a little while back but I don't think they did much other than changing the very last scene which originally looked like a scene out of National Lampoon's vacation with everybody wearing short shorts and knee high socks.

We are driving down Thanksgiving for a week. Can't wait to read more! I've been 5 times but have found so much in your report that we still need to do!
Hey! I'm so glad to have you here! I've been all over the State of Arkansas camping and sightseeing. I love your State and have been trying to get John to go camping at Lake Ouachita.

If we were to do the cruise again (which we are talking about doing in 2014), we definitely want to make sure that it doesn't interfere with our WDW time. We missed our relaxing days at the resort.

I hope that ya'll have fun at WDW! I tried my best to figure out a way for us to get to Disney over the Thanksgiving holiday but I couldn't make it fit budget, our time off work, etc.

We've been to WDW 17 times and we are still amazed at the things that we have yet to do. Disney is constantly changing things up and adding new attractions.

Oh Tower of Terror, how I love thee! I'm so glad you have come to appreciate the greatness that is ToT. Sorry about the rain, though. YUCK!

Hunter was watching Muppets in Space the other day and I had forgotten how cute it was. I love the Muppets too!

You will be at Disney again before you know it!

But we also will save about $700 dollars and in this economy, that's a chunk of change.
We eventually ended up changing to Coronado Springs. John is not a resort snob but he nixed the AOA change not long after we booked it. $700 is a BIG chunk of change, that's for sure!

First, to John for kicking some idiots foot who decided to sit in the middle of the row at the Muppets. That is one of my biggest pet peeves at Disney.

We have yet to see Lights Motor Action...and probably won't, especially if it is going away as rumor has it.

Your lunch looks yummy.

I'm so glad you got over your fear of Tower of Terror...it is my absolute favorite ride at Disney. Rock N Roll--nope, don't do that one anymore.
John suddenly gets all stumbly when it comes to stepping over rude guests who plop their behinds down in the middle of the rows. Makes him so mad!

Fun update! Awfully nice of you to tolerate face licking! Too funny, that is something Jeff would do. I haven't been to sci fi in years, it was fine. Nothing earth shattering but definitely fun ambiance!

Loving the day off for the cost of a bottle of bleach.

You might want to see just how difficult it is to rent a scooter once you are there. I know my mom did it, about 2 days into a trip and others have as well. It could be a "present" if she comes. Maybe she wouldn't need to know it wasn't reserved yet, you could tell her it was but you are able to cancel it at any time. Or see what the cancellation policy is, I imagine peoples needs change all the times. I hope she can go but understand how sensitive the whole things is. I hope a great offer comes out and you can keep getting that room rate down1

That's great you got an unexpected day off!

Sorry to hear mama might not be able to go to WDW, I'm sure you'll to whats best for her though.

Well it looks like you were all getting a little frisky at DHS! I'll let you in on a little secret. When I want to gross River out I'll lick his cheek!

I agree the food at Sci-Fi is not very good but we go every year because of the atmosphere.
