hey norm, i noticed last week when on the people mover, that walk way was open and had the wood cutout things along the path way. i didnt go to the party but i would assume they set the stations up. maybe randall noticed if they had the stations set up.

Thanks for info. I think there used to be four stations, one on each side for a total of 8 bins. Well, instead of just trick treating on right or left side, we went to both sides. Lots of candy.

Not back yet but maybe in a couple of more weeks. Work chaos will be back to our usual SNAFU status soon. Over 1500 people through last week for Field Day and other events but the Dean and Department Chair were both happy with how things went.

Homeschooling, Girl Scouting, coaching the kids Bible Quizzing teams, and trying to maintain two places while keeping SWMBO and the offspring placated takes what time is left aside from sleeping.

Welcome new guys, congratulations to those deserving and prayers for those in need.
Sound exhausted just reading it. Good to see you back.

i used to let mine nap in afternoon so they could stay up later for party. Don't forget to get your authentic Halloween party stuff while there. We get one pin each year and their not sold outside MNSSHP.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is well! Haven't had a lot of time to hang out . A lot of administrative and clinical work. More than I would like. 2nd Wood Badge weekend starts Friday! And then things should settle down next week during another trip to Chicago.

Blessings to those who need them, congratulations to all who deserve them! Stay Disney my friends!

Hey guys.....

been real busy what with work, we're slowly building up to Thanksgiving, meaning extra busy, not to mention prepping for the new assistant next week, and a week after that the new boss. Also bad is staff wise we're streched thin already, and illness and misfortune are taking more out.

Also though, on pins and needles cause the word on the next round of transfers should be in the next couple of days. New store opens in less then a month, so they gotta staff it to get it ready post-haste. We'll see, the District Manager is going to be making rounds soon.

When we did the Pirate and Princess Party, Amelia just wanted to do the dance parties, not as much in the MNSSHP. We did everything spread out over two parties.

If you are going to do any photos, do the Haunted Mansion ones, they look great.

Heading down to Busxh Gardens this weekend for Hollow scream, this time we are taking my car, it gets much better gas milage on a long trip, it's a 8cyl rear wheel drive, we usually take the 6cyl front wheel drive mini van, both take the same amount of gas but I'll get about 85 extra miles with the 8cyl rear wheel drive, I guess torque plays a big factor
