Caught up again. I seem to be saying that too much lately! I loved your Fantasmic pictures. I'm hoping we get to see it in April. I saw it in 2010 but the family hasn't seen it since 2006. I doubt Zach even remembers it. He was 2 1/2.

I love when the girls get their special MeMom time. Looks like Brooklyn was enjoying her time with you at AK!

A little bit of learning going on.



There could be houses down here in the south that look something like this.



We stopped in here to get something to drink.







This is a fun store, I think. Maybe because I am old, and it reminds me of shops I have been in for real that were much like this - you know, back in the old days.









Brooklynn liked this key.















And that's it for this morning. Gotta go do some toilet scrubbing. I know, you are jealous, right? Have a good day, DIStown!

Is it just me, or is that beast smiling?

This reminds me of the touristy places we used to visit in Branson, before it became the Ozark, Las Vegas for performers. You know, when there was just a little train, a cave, and the lake for fun? Oh and the Baldknobbers...

Nope, not one bit jealous of you today. We are getting ready to celebrate Hunter's 2nd birthday as we will miss the big party tomorrow. We had tickets to Mary Poppins down in Tulsa before the party date was set. Oh well, I won't have to share him today with the "others".

Ahhhh .... gotta love Disney details. Love this pay phone photo complete with scummy handset. Just like any roadside tourist trap back in the day.

I am with you on the toilet scrubbing. AND laundry. But that will have to wait until after we get back from Frankenweenie today.

Oh, wow, that key Brooklynn is holding is something I'll have to see if I can find in February! Not for myself, but for a friend...something about it just screams her name to me.

I love all your AK pictures, because you take pictures of all the details!

Brooklynn is a lot braver than I was at that age...I'm not sure I would have ridden EE. It's one of my absolute favorite rides now, but I'm not sure it would have been when I was her age!

I treasure that one-on-one time. I enjoy listening to the conversation and just focusing on that one girl and letting her do whatever she wants. I wish I could take each of them for a full week at different times of the year and make that whole trip be about that individual, but it would be too hard to leave the others behind and too expensive to make those trips and the family trips. I think that when we have our summer 2014 trip, Bella and I may go down 2-3 days early and have our 'alone' time, with the others coming to join us. It was too hard to watch Jill and Bella have to leave when Brooklynn and I stayed on the back end of the summer trip. It was fine after we parted, but too sad to leave. It will be much better the other way. However, Brooklynn has suggested that she and I take Bella for her alone time. For now, Bella is absolutely fine with that plan - 'Sure, Brooklynn, you can come, too!'- so if things stay like that, it may be that Bella and I don't do any real alone time until sometime in the future, or maybe we'll just have our alone hours during a trip instead of separate alone days. Whatever makes them happy makes me happy.

If you lived in WDW, you'd smile, too.

I want to get to Branson one of these years!

Share a birthday picture with us!

Have fun at Mary Poppins!

So glad to see you around, Hap! I guess this is your time of the year and all, right? I bought Brave the other day, but I'm going to wait until the girls are around to watch it.

I was fairly productive yesterday, so I am satisfied. I got all of my inside things done, and today after church, I will do my errands - and possibly my grocery shopping on the way back home. Not sure about that last chore, though. Depends on how crazy things are out there!

This is a park that has to be taken slowly to be fully appreciated.

Makes me want to go down and drive around the Vanderbilt area to see if there are frat houses like this.

I have ridden Everest once. I think she rode it three times in one trip!

There is something for everyone in Disney World, isn't there? From big gold keys to plastic okapis to Goofy ear hats to expensive Mickey watches - something for every want and need.



**************************************

Good morning, dear DIS friends! This is the week that we take to be thankful more than usual for all of the good things that we have. I know that my family is blessed with so many, many material and spiritual blessings, and we have no right to ever complain about anything - ever! Although admittedly, you will still hear me complain about the cold weather which makes my bones feel like frozen metal pipes.

We also keep in mind at this time those who are finding it difficult to celebrate and to find the good things in their lives. Our DIS friend, Erica, has two families close to her who are going through huge struggles - one a neighbor and friend of her husband, Matt, who was severely injured in a four-wheeler accident, and one a sweet baby girl who has just been diagnosed with leukemia. I know people in my life who are sick, sick and in the process of passing away, and those who have recently lost loved ones and will face the holidays with that sadness hanging over them, and I imagine every one of you know about people in your life who are dealing with the same. This will be the first Thanksgiving and Christmas without Joan, so I know that when Ray and the girls pull out their decorations, memories of her will flood over them in a big way.

So, as we gather and laugh and celebrate all of our good things, let's send an extra measure of comfort through our good thoughts and prayers to and for these families. We know that we all have our turns to be the ones sending and the ones receiving when it comes to things like this.

We are all extremely thankful for our DIS friends! You are truly special to us all through the year. We certainly hope that during all of our/your comings and goings either through Nashville or at WDW or wherever, we can meet each of you face-to-face. It is much fun to meet DIS friends in person!

Have a beautiful Sunday, all!

I am so thankful for my DIS friends! I am so hoping to get to meet you guys in person. And I was thinking yesterday of how you guys are to thank for me meeting and becoming so close with Katie (we finally get to see each other in February!!)

Are you off this week, or are you there a few days? Monday and Tuesday are full days for me, but Wednesday I'm out at 12 or 12:30...my co-teacher usually fights with me over who stays. We know two kids who will be there till 12:30, but the rest will be gone by or before 12. So, chances are, I'll be shoved out the door at exactly noon.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi! I'm still here! I'm still about 30 pages behind but it's taking me forever to catch up so I figured if I waited until I was completely caught up to post you may never hear from me again I finally have some DIS time And I'll have tons of DIS time in a month. I'm done with the semester on December 17

This is that time of year where I start dropping hints about a Disney trip. Of course I'm very subtle about it. "Look Mom, there's a Disney commercial on!" And every time she comes home from work later than usual; "I think you need a vacation." Which is true, she does need a vacation. And I know the perfect place to go I hope we can go in January, but she's not sure about her work schedule. If January doesn't work out hopefully we can go in March or May.

I'm looking forward to meeting my new baby cousin Ethan on Thursday I think he's about 3 months old now. And Kazin and Caleb are three and a half I can't believe they're that old already. I don't see Kazin very often these days, but I'm still babysitting Caleb a couple times a week. I love hanging out with him

This year I've found myself thanking God for the small things - like heat, and a bed. I know too many people without this year, makes me really stop and realize how blessed I am.
