Fell a little behind again

Love the pumpkins and the family shot on the tractor! Fall is our favourite too...hoodies, pumpkin spice lattes, stews, soups, it just doesn't get any better than that!

The Pirate League pictures are adorable....I have to show Shanleigh Brynn's mermaid makeup....so adorable! All the kids looked like they were having a ball as I'm sure you were too watching them!

I'm glad the pirate's league was such an enjoyable experience. With two boys, I'm sure we'll make it over there at some point. I have to agree with an earlier poster, that mermaid makeup is awesome and really does look amazing!

We're big barnstormer fans in this house too, and don't feel bad about taking the little one on it, I had DS on it as soon as he was tall enough too, he was just two years and three months. My reasoning was I wanted to get him on it early, so he'd get used to it, and not be scared. It seems to have worked, he loves all the kiddie coasters now.

Your pictures are amazing, I wish I had photography skills!

Whew! I think I am finally caught up...with all the TR and PTR's! Lots of fun. I love reading ones that I have something in common with. We are on TN/GA border, so we are close, I think. I have a 6 yo and almost 3 yo. Also, I am a peds OT and I love reading about Brynn and her adventures through Disney! She is one COOL kiddo! Much luck to you with school system and her getting everything she needs!
Can't wait to

Okay Jenn, I hope you're ready for an epic comment because I kind of fell behind over here and have THREE updates to chat about! I'll try to keep it short but I make no promises.

Oh and this is random, but I had to tell you this funny story. Whenever Matt and I talk about you to each other (not in a BAD way, but more like if we are just talking about one of your updates on the DIS or a FB status update), we always are like, "OH! Did you see what Fantasyland Mom said blahblahblah".. But it just dawned on me that like, hello, why do I not call you Jenn? BAHAHAHA, anyway, I think I will start calling you Jennifer when I talk to Matt about some funny thing that you mentioned one of the kids did or whatever. I feel like such a dork but it just cracked me up over here.

I'm fairly certain, based on your FB photos and such, that we went to the Pumpkin Patch at the same time! If only it were in the same state, hahaha. But I just adored your photos! And your pumpkins are fantastic! Another reason why I think we'd be good friends; you adore the same things about Fall/Halloween that I do!

Okay, this is the update I have been SUPER looking forward to because I can't wait to see how this whole Pirates League thing goes, eeee!


I love how Sawyer is looking at his arm like, "WAAAAIT A SECOND... I thought you were gone! So nice to see you again."

I LOVE this process for finding out Julia's name/the document they give you! Such a neat idea!

Um, that wench sounds like a wench. What the heck? What a poop. Brynn can sign her name as large as she wants, dangit.

Okay, Elizabeth is awesome in my book. Sounds like she knew exactly how to talk to Brynn which makes me a happy lady over here. AND I love how Brynn got cheers all around! I bet she was so happy!

Aww, I love Julia's transformation! She looks like a true pirate. And I love her version of the oath.

OH MY GOODNESS. THIS PHOTO SHOOT. There are no words! I love the dedication by both of the girls to their characters! I mean seriously, this is the best photo shoot ever.

HAAHA the look of fear on Julia's face in that one photo while Brynn's just got a smile on her face is kind of priceless.

Haha the is highly unfortunate that Sawyer peed on you. At least it dried quickly?!

AHHH YAY! The feeling of finally being caught up... and I can't wait to hear abotu the rest of your day! Talk about an awesome start, with so much more to look forward to, seriously!

EDIT: I just edited this because I realized I called you Jennifer and not Jenn, hahaha. I mean obv. that's your name but I know you go by Jenn, duh. What a goob I am.

And also, in response to your "Arrrr you ready?", I just suddenly got the urge to scream, "AYE AYE CAPTAIN.... AYE AYE CAPTAIN! OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH... Wholivesinapineappleunderthesea? Sponge Bob Square Pants!" Yup, don't even mind me.

the pirate pictures of your girls are just awesome. When we had our family celebration last July we also surprised our grandson Joaquin with a pirate makeover. His dad Jason wanted his whole face done, unfortunately Joaquin was not happy about that and almost from the start wanted the "yuck" as he called it taken off his face.I believe my daughter IheartDduck posted a few of his pictures on her TR.

Love your detailed TR makes me feel like I am right there and experiencing it too.

Love your Monsters Inc pumpkins

Can't wait to hear more.

The girls look SO good! I loved all of the pictures and their great expressions in them.

You guys all look great at the pumpkin patch. That was such a cute idea to paint the pumpkins.

Wow the Pirates League looks amazing! I didn't know they transformed little girls there, for some reason I thought it was for boys, since the girls have BBB! I love it! The girls look so adorable, I really love the mermaid make up!

Love the photoshoot, you have some amazing pictures to remember your trip by! I absolutely LOVE the shots on the Barnstormer, you're right, they definitely do look like they should be used on the Disney website!

Hahahahahahahaha. That's what I used to say to a co-worker all the time when he would say something stupid. I would just pet his arm and say "you're so pretty....."

Okay, that kid mannequin thing just scared the bejeezus out of me too! Thank you for providing me with what will be the source of my future nightmares.

I thought sticking your arm in a cannon was always wise? Clearly I've been misinformed.

Yes, wench seems to be an appropriate name for that girl.

Awwww, Brynn's makeover is so cool! I love the makeup they did. I'm glad that her transformer (robot) handled her very well.

Hahaha, "yeah, what she said!" Clever Julia.

They wanted to charge you for the photos? That must be new, because it was included in ours with my nephew last year. That's bizarre.

The girls are so absolutely adorable in those pictures! Talk about commitment!

You are a great Mom! Just like my great Mom used to do with us. "You're tall enough? Great! I'm not explaining a thing!" Seriously, it will only help them in the end, trust me!

Brandon seriously takes awesome pictures. I love the whole sequence on the Barnstormer.

You are absolutely correct. You guys would be so much better on WDW's website.

Poor you with the little reminder you had to wear for the day!

Ah! Such a great update! the pirates league looks like such a great experience. I'm really glad they have something like that that's not princess themed. There's something for everyone! That photo shoot is incredible, amazing shots of everyone! Yay!

I definitely know the "small" feeling on the Barnstormer, that thing certainly is made for children, fitting 2 adults into a car just isn't fun most of the time haha.

Love, Love the Pirates League photos! I just love the Pirates League... so well done in there... took my kiddos in there 3 years ago... No mermaids at the time... but both did pirates... so much fun...

David unfortunately remembers too much make up and even though he doesn't have many sensory issues... before I knew it -he had a lot of makeup on... He looked great but I felt bad because I know he felt a bit uncomfortable... he really didn't like the feeling...

Both your girls look awesome and the make is very well done but not crazy heavy ... which is really nice...

I love the whole fall.pumpkin.cider.orange. awesome ness myself... we've already made the pumpkin/apple pilgrimage this year... but I don't have any great tractor photos...

BTW can you explain to this Northerner exactly what a boiled peanut is? I mean is it literally a peanut that is boiled? I saw trucks that had them in South Carolina... I didn't see any the time I was in Tennessee...but I was mainly in Nashville...are they more of a country thing or just a general Southern thing?

Your pumpkins are so cute. What a great idea.

The photo shoot is amazing. How cool to have your very own photographer along with you.
