You haven't seen Christmas magic until you've seen (in person) the castle look like it's covered in icicles and snow falling on Main Street.... At DHS, DS fell in love with RnR and rode it SIX times!!! He chickened out (literally) on ToT and we took the chicken exit out! That was new. At the MK in the evening, we did Space Mt. first thing and DS also fell in love and rode THAT six times! I did it once and that was enough. I'd try it again in the front, but my ride was in the very last seat and I found it jerky and came out with my head spinning. So while he was riding that, I made my rounds on the WEDway. I was very impressed with the CMs, who were quite diligent early in the evening to check everyone for party wrist bands, and not just when you were approaching a ride...they were stationed randomly about the park. It seemed crowded when you looked at the people around you but there were NO waits for ANY rides!! Actually Peter Pan had the highest wait at 30 minutes. Everything else seemed to peak at 10.

Anyway, I'm now enjoying my last morning on the deck at the condo. I'm letting DS sleep as late as I possibly can, but we've got to go pick up my dad in a little while. Tomorrow we have to be up at ridiculous-o'clock for our 6:30am flight.......

.
I'm so glad you had a great time. Did you get to see any if the new Fantasyland?

I'm also a late starter on decorating. Maybe by the end of this week.

We didn't go over there but the only thing open was Dumbo and the other stuff that's already been open. Your sneak peak was exactly that! I did see two of the new castles in the distance, though! They were lit up in blue and purple. The new Dumbo area is really nice at night!

I've had two frustrating days at work this week. Been feeling like one step forward, two steps back for most of this week.

Thankfully, I have a chill-out day tomorrow.

Is it New Year's yet?

Hi everyone. My computer still has issues. I can go online and onto fb fine, but getting on here takes extra time. I'd like to get rid of this sinus headache.

Will someone please tell me that I'm not the only one with a house that hasn't been fully decked out for the holidays and an unfinished Christmas shopping list? I don't have any decorations up or presents wrapped, yet. I had to get folks out of the house first!

I have not started decorating or shopping.

What a fantastic day! I was wondering if MVMCP was worth the cost.

For those not on my FB page, I got brave last night and got a tattoo. It's something I've been planning for over a year. But it took me a while to work out my vision and reality with a tattoo artist that I liked. Once I saw this woman did a perfect Eeyore cutie, I knew she was the one. It's small, simple, and on my left wrist. The 4 balloons represent my family.

I have been wanting to do that for years.... but.. mickey heads with my 4 kids names or birthdates... something like that... I was thinking on my ankle... maybe my wrist... did it hurt there>? the last one I got, is completely discreet, so only DH knows where it is.. () but I haven't 100% decided yet.. plus I don't just want to go anywhere... I would like to go somewhere that I know has good artists..

The first of the Christmas cards will get written today as well.

I've pulled out all the spare presents that I've bought through out the year. I suspect that aside from DH and DS, I may well be done with my gifts......just need to wrap them.

Oh.. you're good.... I haven't quite gotten that far yet, although DH did put up the lights on the house reluctantly, becuase the neighbor has had his up for weeks, and my kids were telling him how pathetic we were becuase we didn't have ours out yet. I did some black friday shopping.. mainly becuase I wanted to get out of the house becuase we hosted thanksgiving... (reluctantly.. ) and I needed a break from my inlaws. I didn't get a lot of shopping done, but I got out of the house...
I;ve got to make lists... and more lists.. and get ready for sleepless nights trying to get everything in before christmas. next week, I'll be in Las Vegas, and as much as I was looking forward to it, I am sure I will be sitting there thinking if I were home, I could have so much more done and be more productive with my time. as soon as I get off the plane, I will be heading out towards PA mom to sit at YET ANOTHER swim meet for my DD. If you thought we had a lot before, ... well.. this year she started HS, and is now on the HS team as well, so we have a whole lot more swim meets and practices to go to.

That's as far as I've gotten. I really need to muster up some energy for this christmas push.

I had wanted to get my kid's names on it, but they couldn't fit it on my wrist. I considered my ankle but to get the names it would have been bigger than I wanted. It took me over a year to figure out what I want, where I wanted it, and who to do it. I've heard from people with tattoos that the wrist is supposed to be more painful than other places, but I didn't think it was that bad. It actually hurt a lot more the last time I got my eyebrows threaded.

Hi. Maybe I will drag some Xmas stuff out tomorrow. I have not adjusted to winter temps yet. It was 14 this morning.

SadieDog, it's been real cold here, too! It never got out of the 20s today. That's too cold for this time of year. But they are saying near 50 for Sunday and Monday. I'll take that.
