That's okay Rozz, I'm way behind on every TR that I'm following. I'm hoping to make some progress in the next few days too!

We did have a nice Christmas, I hope you did too.

Hi Cherie! Thanks. I just read your post to Judy, since she's sitting here and she met you back at the Kidani Community Hall a couple of summers ago.

You're welcome. I really wanted to write one about Vero, because I noticed the same thing -- I couldn't really find any trip reports about it ahead of time.

Yes, I can't remember everything in that final montage right now, but I think I recognized most of them. It was definitely fun trying to name them.

I still want to try that beach out! We need to stay there sometime.

He does! He gets everyone involved, having fun. His energy is infectious!

It's our favorite moderate resort, although I can't claim that I've stayed at all of them, so that's not really a fair statement. But we like it, and if it had more room for our family of 5, we wouldn't mind staying there all of the time.

Thanks! I thought it was appropriate to include, since we used DVC points traded through RCI for their NYC hotel room. I'm sure your son and his girlfriend will find lots of things to do and see in New York...it's quite a bustling town!

We try to have fun together. We have our moments, like all families do, I suspect, but for the most part we get along pretty well. The turtle nesting was a real highlight of the trip -- something that we'll all remember for a very long time! I was so glad that it finally worked out, on our second attempt.

Recover from that trip.
Thanks Pat! As you can see, I sat here and got caught up on replies. Getting caught up on other TRs is another hurdle!

Thank you. We are! Chris is almost home. We will be doing our big family gumbo on Saturday. Oh wait.....I haven't been here in a while. Let me explain. Chris now works oversea's. He has been in Scotland and is about to move the rig to Norway. Perhaps one day DS and I can go see what he see's! I just have to figure out how to travel abroad with a child who has severe food allergies. Hmmmm.....

I've been away for awhile... but I'm all caught up now. Hope you and your family had a great Christmas!

I love the Perry hat bought at DTD! I'm a huge P&F fan... even more so now that my son is starting to watch the show.

I hope your parents reconsidered their choice to not use an ECV during the trip, I know that by the end of some days at WDW I wish I could sit and have someone push me around! It's funny that you mentioned the whole issue because it's a conversation with have with my in-laws all the time! We keep telling them to come with us one year and they always say "we can't do all that walking", so we say "we can rent an ECV" and they say "no, no we don't need that"

We loved the new Star Wars too, it was very cool! I hope you enjoyed the rest of the day at DHS despite the rain.

Yes, as Glenn said, we moved to AZ. We have had a hard transition - we are pretty sure we are supposed to be here - but we sure do wonder what God's real plan is. We are settling in though, and Jim is looking for a new job - didn't get the one he was promised when he retired early. Not missing the snow, and just had Ryan and fam out for Christmas so that made it a welcome piece of home for sure.

Happy New Year - (sorry to hi-jack, Glennbo )

Judy bought a big enameled cast iron dutch oven with some Christmas money and has made some good stuff in it already, including a gumbo, which was delish. I'm sure it didn't quite compare to a Louisiana gumbo , but we liked it.

Oh wow, that's a big change. Hopefully he's been able to sight-see a little bit? Yes, it'd be great if you could visit him and take advantage of the time that he's in these exotic locales. I hope you can work that out.

I hear ya. But no, they hiked/mosey'd/shuffled along all week long.

I know, it makes no sense to say both that you can't do all that walking, but don't need an ECV or wheelchair.

Hi Rosie! I thought about working on one yesterday, but James wanted me to play videogames with him, and how could I say no to that? But maybe we'll have another update before too much more of this year gets past us.

No apology necessary. I'm sorry that the transition hasn't gone more smoothly...I'm hoping that 2013 has good things in store for you.
