Such great pictures at the Poly. I love visiting there. Would love to stay there some day. Sounds like you are getting quite a group together for you New Years Eve at O'Hanas. That should be lots of fun.

I just booked a fishing excursion leaving from the Poly for Lang, the boys, my niece, and nephew for our June trip. Since my mom and I will not be fishing, I booked us for the 'Ohana character breakfast. We are doing Universal again(we got AP's last year and they will still be valid this June) with some SeaWorld thrown in. It is so hard going to Orlando without visiting Mickey. Hopefully, eating breakfast with him will help.

No, ma'am, not at all.

Have a great day!!
It's a good place to window shop for some different things, since they have a pretty good selection on 'real' clothes and jewelry, and not just Mickey everything.

We're having quite the weather in IA the past few days. We had an ice storm Sunday, today it'll get about 50 degrees, and tonight & tomorrow it'll be 20 degrees & snow.
60 something today, 30 something by Thursday. At least we have almost made it to February, and it hasn't been horrible. We just have to push through February and hope for a good March. March here can be a crazy mixed bag of weather.

Going to catch up on your report now! I'm a little bit behind!
Yes, we love the tropical resorts, too. It's so different from what we see every day. We enjoy the colorful landscaping, the music, and the decor.

Much food will be consumed, and much fun will be had.

That's the way we're thinking about the summer trip. We're doing a day at SeaWorld, but we're staying in a Disney resort. We'll do DTD and probably go over to Poly to see fireworks one of the two nights, but no parks. We might do a character meal, but then again, we're doing one at Vero, so maybe not. We can soak up plenty of Disneyness at the resorts.

I just think it's kind of funny that we already have our NYE planned. We are looking forward to it.

We are so very, very blessed to be getting our three trips this year. If it weren't for Marc and Anita letting us bunk in with them for parts or all of some of these journeys, they would be either greatly shortened or not happening at all.



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

2013 is proving to be somewhat like 2012 - plenty of bad news dotting our days. Anita knows a family who has just lost their teenage son to a car crash. We had a family here who was hit by an unlicensed driver last night. The car that he hit had a new mother with her 14 day old son, her toddler daughter, and her mother, who was in town staying with her to help for a few weeks. The grandmother died in surgery, the mother is badly injured and will undergo five surgeries in the next week, the infant son is okay, and the two year old is on life support. Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers, and as always, remember to treasure your days.

Also, an update on Lindy, the girl who was hurt in the skiiing accident - she has been moved to a rehab hospital in Atlanta and will be there for 2-3 months of hard work. They say her spirit continues to amaze everyone. I love to hear that.

more pictures of the Poly.

How did you like Captain Cook's? We've not eaten there since 2004 and tht was before they did the total refurb. The menu looks appealing.

One of those shirts that you posted from the shop I bought Mark in 2011. He still hasn't forgiven me. I didn't even look at the price tag and when I checked out I was a little shocked to see it was $65.00. Needless to say, I didn't tell him and he saw it when he took the price tag off to wear the shirt in Marco.

As MeMom mentioned a dear friend and coworker lost her 14 year old son late Friday night in a roll over accident on a dirt road just outside of our small town. It was just yards away from Baylor's best friends house. Baylor woke me up very early Saturday morning with the news. The boys, (Baylor and Tommy) were out in the field where the SUV finally came to rest inspecting the area and said it was horrible. We attended the visitation this evening and the parents seem to be walking in a fog. Tomorrow is the funeral. The entire community is mourning the loss of this dear boy. We ache for his family. The boy that died attended our elementary school from K-5 so we all knew him so well.....

Anita- again, my prayers are with you all. Tragedy in a small town is especially difficult- and we have had our fair share. Blessings as all begin the long road ahead.

My DH had today off and he mentioned to me that there is availability for a studio at Kidani for post Christmas - Jan 3. First thought in my mind? OOOH, I could meet the DIStown gang at the Poly on NYE!!!!

No, we didn't book it. Just considering the possibility of our future plans. But the thought has been floated out there...who knows?


Thanks for the tour of Poly! So pretty!

to all those suffering losses. Hang in there!! I will pray for peace.

We like Captain Cook's. The Aloha Pork Sandwich was huge and quite good. In the past, I have had burgers and grilled cheese there, as well. Ever since I have read that the noodles are the same as those at 'Ohana, I am anxious to get over there and see for myself. If they are, I will have a new favorite there!

Yes, the good thing about BouTiki is that there are unique things. The bad thing is, they are kind of pricey.

We have lost teenage boys to car wrecks here, too, so we know the scenario that is going on for you guys right now. Very sobering.

Life can change in an instant. We hear that all our lives, and the older we get, the more we see that happen.

We would certainly love to have you join us! I think the idea deserves one of these!

Can you imagine having the joy of a new baby and having this special time with your mom in these first weeks, and then having things turn so tragic in one moment's time? This girl has lost her mom, and there is little hope that her daughter is going to make it. Her baby boy was having to have help breathing, but he is fine now. And she, herself, has broken limbs and cuts and faces more surgeries in the days ahead. The road ahead is going to be pretty rough for this family, and they are going to need much support and encouragement.



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

Hope all of you are safe. We've had tornado warnings here since about two a.m. There are reports of high winds - 70 to 90 mph - on the news. A truck driver said he was driving along and the wind scooped his truck over. Someone on FB said they heard 105 mph, but on the news I have only heard the 70-90. That's still scary and a bit destructive. As far as I know, my house is good. I won't be surprised if I find all my roof shingles in the yard when I peek out this morning, though! They just announced that there are about 25,000 people without power in Davidson County, and there are some roads shut down due to debris and fallen trees. Should be an interesting morning.

And in more exciting and happy news - 7 weeks from right now, I will be at the airport ready to head off to you know where!

So sorry to hear news like that. I cannot imagine what the family is going through. Thoughts & prayers to all of you.

Just catching up and I so enjoyed the Poly this morning. We have had some snow and the kids have a snow day. I decided we would have a snow day too and wouldn't you know Lexi woke up at 5:30AM. I heard about your tornados as they made the news here even though we have had snow. Stay safe!!!

This is just heartbreaking. I can't imagine what the parents are going through....I honestly don't know how you would move on with your life.

Just checking in on you guys. Hope those storms passed you by.

We have had some terrible days down here as well. My husbands friend's mom was killed by her husband (married 52 yrs). He stabbed her to death last week. It is all so sad.
Then this week one of my students (college) was driving early in the morning (possibly drunk) and hit and killed a man and then drove away.She was found and arrested. The last thing I said to her after her last class last wednesday was to try and stop having fender benders and drive more carefully. She is a very naive 20 yr old college kid who has now taken one mans life, ruined a family's life and ruined her own life by being dumb. Just heartbreaking all around. Sometimes these kids just devastate me with their actions.
