And I see it when I am on trips without the girls - not ashamed to say.

Stitch has some cute merchandise. I keep hoping someday they will do him a little more honor with his attraction.


As a group, we were waiting for Jennifer and her boys to arrive. The plan was to ride something together, and it was decided that that something would be Splash Mountain.

And...here they are!





The plan was to first fill a Jungle Cruise boat. Then we would talk about a second ride.





Anita and the little orange treasure she got at Sunshine Tree Terrace.



Look at the girls' faces.



Goodbye, people we will never see again.









Being the big guy, Baylor had plenty of adoration from his little fans that night.







After Jungle Cruise, we made our way to Splash Mountain. Not everyone was going to ride. Here is where I made a big mistake. I left both my phone and camera with Anita, who was going to sit out. I was just going to concentrate, for a rare time, on riding the ride and enjoying Brooklynn and the company of those on the log with me.

As many of you know, this was the night that we got stuck on said Mountain and were walked off of it. I could have gotten some very good pictures as we were dead still in front of Brer Rabbit's abode, but no such luck. It was a fun and funny time, even though it did get kind of long. The passengers with me on that fateful voyage were Jennifer, Marc, Brooklynn, Jennifer's two boys, and I think only one of Mary's girls. Those who were there, feel free to correct me....and share your pictures.

That's awesome how you were basically able to fill a Jungle Cruise boat! I definitely need to make sure I go on that ride for next time. And that stinks how you didn't have your camera when you were walked off Splash. But I am sure it was one interesting experience otherwise.

Can't wait to read more!

Trying once again to get caught up.

I enjoyed your Christmas weekend pictures both in Tn and Al. We had a great Christmas too. I had all 3 of my kids together for the first time in 4 years.

Loved the pictures of all the Disers and kids. I hope we get to meet some the next time we go. Don't know when that will be. Danielle is going with the Disney club in Feb again over the Mardi Gras holiday but we won't be crashing her trip this time.

I remember it being posted about Brooklynn doing the pledge while y'all were there. What a great Magical Moment. I hope she always remembers it.

How exciting that Brooklynn got to recite the pledge! That must have been such a special moment.

It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with your family! I bet it was a great first one for Sophie.

Oh goodness, stuck on Splash... I'm so glad that ride is getting the refurb it deserves! I hope it fixes the 'stuck' problems!

It does look like the castle is on fire. I caught it after all the sparks and in the midst of the smoke dying out. It kind of bothers me to see it like that, since we know that Disney World could be a prime target for anyone wanting to bomb something.

I didn't mind getting stuck on Splash Mountain, and walking off was a cool experience, but I am just sick that I didn't have my camera.

NYE 2013 - let's have a big crowd!!!

Hope you enjoyed getting caught up. The picture list is on page one, if that helps.

I was fine just being the photographer for that picture.

It was interesting. They kept trying to get us going, but finally, the lights came on, and they told us that castmembers would be coming to assist us off the ride.

We hope to fill a Jungle Cruise boat again next December, as I think a DIS crowd is already planning to gather down there then.

I saw your pictures on FB. Where does your son live? I am so glad you got to have that treasured family time! Brooklynn and Bella are with me in TN right now. They'll be here a couple of days so Jill can get some work done at home. It's a win-win deal.

You could always join in next Christmas to New Year 2013-2014.

I hope all the pictures help the girls recall lots of fun times in Disney World.

I am glad Brooklynn was not having one of her shy moments and she didn't say no when he asked her about doing it.

We already talked about how fascinated Sophie will be with the tree next year, as she toddles by it. This year, she watched all things Christmas from the safety of people's laps.

Spaceship Earth is the ride that tends to get stuck with us the most. I guess with as many rotations as those rides go through per day, it's good that they hold up as well as they do.

Loved the updates. That looked like a great dismeet. Merry belated Christmas. I loved seeing your Christmas morning pics. What American Girls did they get? I saw the boxes. Abby got Marie Grace and has been playing non stop with her. And Ellie got the Bitty twins. She's my little mommy.

After we were rescued from Splash Mountain, we began making our way out of the park.

We decided to watch Main Street Electrical Parade before we called it a night.
























It fits! I just know it fits!



What do you guys think? I don't think it's gonna fit.

It was time to say good night to Magic Kingdom and to friends.











Time check.
Late.



Time to go back to Pop and get some sleep.
It had been a fun day, and we had had a great evening with DIS friends.

How cool that you guys were able to fill a JC boat!!! That's a Disney accomplishment for sure!

What a fantastic, fun Dis meet! The kids are precious, they looked like they're old friends!

I love your family picture, even though there's an important lady who's missing.

We're staying at Saratoga Springs in February - we knew at this point we'd take what was open but we love it there, being so close to DTD! Today I am going to start making ADRs for Mom & I. So far, Brown Derby & California Grill are on the list. I'd like to try some new places & Mom is pretty adventure food-wise so she's ok with anything.

I see from FB that you have two guests - fun!! Have a great weekend!

We haven't ever seen the Electrical Parade. It seems so pretty in pictures!

Enjoy your time with those two girlies, MeMom!

Brent lives in Austin, Tx. His wife has a hard time getting off work. She started at her job in 2010 and had to wait to her turn to take off at Christmas. Her family lives in North Carolina and it's been even longer since they have been there. We have to take turns with the in-laws and with work schedules.

I would love to be in Disney for the holidays. We went for New Years 2005-2006. I had a trip booked for Feb when Danielle was going to be there but had to cancel it Christmas Eve. I'm hoping to reschedule for the end of May beginning of June.

I saw on FB that you had guests! I'm sure you're having a great time with the girls.

I love MEP! It was the first nightime parade I saw on my very first trip to the World. I was so glad we all got to see it in Feb.
