Now that it is a permanent buffet I will get there again. EARLY.



Yes you need an Animal Kingdon mug.

I had coffee in it this morning too.

Once I get it clean again I will post a picture for you. Hopefully I will get it up before I leave.

Looks like you guys had a super fun time together! It's always fun to spend time with Dis-town friends!

It's nice to see Jill with so many smiles and surrounded by family and friends! She certainly deserves it! Your friend's home is gorgeous!!

Family, friends, and fun - that's what I tell my students they have for homework every weekend. I assign homework Monday through Thursday, but weekends are for totally forgetting about school and work, but rather just having fun with people they want to be around.

We'll be at MNSSHP the 8th. Do you want to plan on coming to Pop at 1:30 on the 13th? There will be several DIS friends to meet there!

Don't forget to have some nice breakfast food beside it, too. I'm being nosy and trying to see what everyone is baking these days.

I do need an AK mug. Jill does, too. She is not a coffee drinker, either, but we both like hot chocolate on snowy days. In January, when we're having a snow day and it's been three months since we've been to Disney World, some hot chocolate in those mugs could do wonders for our souls.

I thought it would be a nice surprise for her. She doesn't get to see everyone very often, and she had not seen Ty yet, since she was not able to travel pretty much right after he arrived.

Yes, that home is very nice. They have been blessed financially, and they are very giving with their blessings. The man cave was built just a few years ago so the guys could have football parties. It has a big room for indoor watching, and the kitchen and bathroom are there. Then the glass doors open to a huge porch. There is another TV out there. There are fireplaces inside and out. The porch faces the backyard and river. It is very nice. The house is also nice. And it was a beautiful day to have a party, too, so that made it even more lovely back there.

I so wish we had a Rainforest Cafe close to us. I love that place. I also love your friend's house. I would not love to have to clean it. You are quite welcome for the gift cards. I am happy that she was able to use them. I can't wait to see them in their costumes.

Looks like it was a fun weekend!! And, wow, just 2 weeks until your trip?!? I'm so excited for you guys to have an opportunity to relax and enjoy the magic after all the stress. And I cannot wait to hear all about the fun you will have introducing Princess Sophie to WDW!

I am drinking my morning coffee out of my AKL mug this morning with an apple fritter on the side. I almost went and changed mugs just so I could take a picture for you.

What a fun time at the mall and Rainforest Cafe! So neat to surprise Jill like that.

It's been a long time since we saw a picture of all three of your kids -- how are Trent and Drew these days?

Ok, you inspired me to bake this morning.

Not really (but kinda), I was perusing my cookbooks yesterday figuring out what to make for gourmet club tomorrow night which I am hosting. Stumbled across a yummy looking muffin recipe. Didn't have all-bran, which it called for, but the image stuck with me and this morning I decided to try them anyways, substituting pumpkin flax granola.



Yum!

I was very glad to see that it came back when the mall opened back up. It gives us a little Disney fix now and then.

She was thrilled to put them on her payment. Bella made a perfect little Tinkerbell, as you might be able to picture in your mind, but she kept being drawn to the Rapunzel dress. In the switch from Tink to Reepunzel, Jill also saved some money, because now Sophie can wear the Tinkerbell outfit she has had since Brooklynn was a baby.

I only have nine days of school left. Our students are out on the 5th, so I am going to have all of my grades in and paperwork done so that I can leave from school on the 4th to go to AL. We're flying out the morning of the 5th.

Another two weeks should definitely see her with more and more energy, but we'll still be going slowly.

I was just thinking of apple goodies from Apple Barn the other day, but I was told that it didn't come back when the mall reopened.

We don't go to the mall often, but when we eat at or just visit the gift shop at Rainforest, take a trip to the Disney Store, and get a treat at Rocky Mountain Fudge, we feel like we've had a little Disney fix.

Trent and Drew are fine. They stay very busy with work and girls and play. Trent is helping to coach a 7th/8th grade football team, and Drew spends his spare time working on his motorcycle. He's also been helping set up one of the haunted houses around here. I think they might both be going on the Disney Christmas 2013 trip.

That is exactly what I wanted with my request! I wanted to see the official mug in our DIStown homes - with special treats accompanying. Your picture is lovely!

Filled with lunch, we walked around Coronado for a few minutes. This was John's first visit there. This might be where they stay when they end up going with his parents. They really don't know when that is going to happen. John's mom brings it, but then drops it, but has now recently come up with a 40th anniversary trip she wants to plan for next year, so who knows is there really will be a Disney in-law trip after all. It's all been so back and forth, and Jill doesn't feel like it is her place to say they can't pay for two trips. Time will tell.


Anyway, here is a little touch of CSR.





My, what big teef you have!





A gift shop like this has some different things than maybe a Pop or an All-Star. This is nice for the businessman who has forgotten part of his wardrobe.



Remember to send some magic to those at home.



Goofy, meet Goofy.



I'm thinking Sophie would sure look cute in that little seersucker outfit.



Don't guess I'll ever have a grandson to buy blue things for, but that's okay. I have three incredible girls who will keep my pocketbook busy!







Play area for kids.



Recognize these guys?



For our communication devices, some Disney coverings.





Minnie loves playing dress up.



In the next post, we go outside.

The trip started out to be Jill's family going with friends of theirs in AL. After a few months of them talking and planning, Jill asked me if I would like to go, and you know the answer to that! That gives us one adult per child in our family, which is nice. Jill will have Sophie, John will help Brooklynn when she needs it, which is not much these days, so she's easy, and I will try to keep up with Bella. Also, it gives the two young couples a night to go out to enjoy Kona one night while I stay in with the 5 girls. Also, just in the past two weeks, Brandy has talked Sloan into a few days with the two older boys, so they will be there, too. Jill and I will take Carson and Parker with us one night so that Brandy and Sloan can have a date night, too. Dawn is keeping Micah at home, because Brandy doesn't like taking really little ones to WDW. She says he'll be ready for next year's trip.


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

Outside this lovely resort...



I suppose you can see that it was wet.







Back inside, I took these while we were swapping out potty stops before we left.







That's it for now. Have a beautiful Sunday afternoon, all! I got up just before 4 with a bad headache. I got ready for church, but then decided to lay back down. I remember coming in and out of sleep as I heard people stirring around, but I didn't actually wake up completely until 10:02. If you know me, you know that was one killer headache to keep me in bed until that time! It's gone now, thank heavens. I plan to pull my suitcase out in a little while and start throwing some things in it.

Wow that must have been a bad headache. I hope it is better and stays away! Just caught up again. Missed all last week. A week of happiness and sadness and lots of work around here. I have a new niece and a friend lost her husband to cancer. It has been inspiring to see how everyone at my school has gathered around her and her family. Then a quick ER visit last night for Louie when he thought he could fly off my headboard.Thank Goodness he was fine but it was good to have the Dr confirm that. All in all an exhausting week. It has been nice to sit around today and catch up.

12 more days until our quick weekend trip. I think our plans are drive up to POP 10/5 do the halloween party that night (I think I have decided to be Minnie mouse in her witch costume), epcot the next day (surprising my little man with a coral reef lunch) and then Cape May for breakfast on sunday and Dtn disney stop before we leave for home. Busy weekend. Hope we can catch up a some point! I will PM you my number before we leave :0)
