Done Did Disney on a Dime (well...many dimes) LAH LAH's TR *Updated 3/17*

HERE WE GO!!!

Welcome to my seriously delayed Disney TR! We had a wonderful time and I can't wait any longer to share it with you all! Wanna learn more about us than the bare minimum? Check out our PTR here, or click on any of the links in my siggy for our previous trips. I'm happy to have you here and I hope you enjoy the ramblings of an excitable, Disney die-hard

I'm about to share the barest of basics with you. Are ya ready? It's gonna go by pretty quickly

OUR FAMILY:



DISNEY GOERS:



(sorry for the blurry pic...more on that later)

Melissa: 37, short, happy, likes to laugh, loves Jesus, loves her children, serving others, and DISNEY!

Michael: 15, tall, witty, funny, particular, oldest of 5 kids, plays volleyball and loves video games!

Elsa: 13, shortest, responsible, jolly, the lone sister, plays soccer, runs track, and loves to perform and sing!

STAY AT HOME-ERS:


Easton: 4, determined, silly, laughs a lot, loves being the center of attention and Toy Story ANYTHING!!

Chase: (almost) 3, reserved, smiley, goofy, clever, loves to eat and adores Thomas the Train!

Noah: 19 months, independent, super ticklish, super smiley, desperately wants to be in with the big kids, loves animals and his bear!


Thanks for joining, what I can only describe as a total-picture-overloaded, self indulgent, retelling of our August 5th-13th trip to the World...and I'm excited to get to relive it here, with you! So, hang on tight, grab some coffee or a soda, and let's get to know each other a little bit better!

Happy you made it over here!

We have been wicked busy! Elsa started soccer preseason the day we got back from Disney. She actually missed the 1st morning session while we were flying home. She walked in the door from the airport, dressed and went to try-outs. She made the JV a year early and has also dressed for all the Varsity games. She has played in 4 of them.
