I have mysteriously found myself home alone. Hmmm, what to do? I'm thinking some combination of curling up with a book and thinking through our plans & packing list :-)

I'm on my way home from work. I think I'm going to curl up with my unofficial guide when I get there. Maybe take a nap.

Good afternoon all! The boys and I just got home from a nice walk at the local park. Glad it was nice enough to get out since I think as of this weekend it's really supposed to cool off around here. Anyone going out tonight? I couldn't tell ya the last time I went out on Thanksgiving Eve. It's usually like a class reunion since everyone is back in the area for the holiday

I am coordinating with other areas now as I think the more we have the better off we will be in getting him “lost” in the crowd behind the poster."

This is coming together quite nicely and I'm just thrilled to be a part of it. Youtube, here we come. LOL


You HAVE to video tape it and show us! I'm dying to see your children's reaction!

Hi everyone. Add another to the December list. Received an airline offer and a pin code, so I just had to book.

Just curious if anyone is flying out of DFW airport?

So while sneakingly working on my touring plans while in the office today, I hear a co-worker say she is going up to WDW this weekend.

I start to chat with her and realize she doesn't know THE ways...

An hour later, she is armed with the recommended days, park schedules, and touring plans.

Let's see if she follows any of my suggestions. hehe.

So I pretty much have my touring plans done for our park days. I am getting closer to getting it all done and ready!

Hope everyone is ready for thanksgiving and doesn't have trouble finding any last minute things. Luckily I only have to make dessert for Thursday, but on Saturday I'm doing a turkey breast, stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce (others are doing potatoes and veggies). I went to Williams Sonoma to get the Apple Spice turkey brine to try for the first time on a recommendation. Hopefully it's good. Anyone else trying a new recipe for the big meal?
Yeah for a big boy bed! I couldn't help myself when we went to Target yesterday after work. I had intended on only buying toothpaste and bread.......and came home with BRAVE! It was only $15 for the Blu-Ray/DVD combo set. We watched it last night and I must say I loved it. I love a story with a strong/independent female lead...especially one that doesn't require a PRINCE! What daughter couldn't relate to the complicated mother/daughter relationship? I loved it.....

I'm baking a turkey breast right now. We'll have it at home, mainly because I want some leftovers! We'll go to my sisters tomorrow but she never shares the turkey leftovers I bake it in an oven bag and put fresh sage, lemon halves, onion, and garlic in it's little cavity. It's delicious!

[QUOTE=tofubeast;46758719]hmm like these pics? I concur with your description!



This is how I live most every day of my life.

Also, I succumbed to the Disney Store and ordered the three little bears from Brave for $5/each. Whoops! I may have also gotten myself a tiny Lotso and a brave blanket for my cat carrier. Ha!
I have a few things in the cart there as well. I NEED the park tickets pouch for sure......and the 9-10" Santa Mickey/Minnie are just begging for me to buy them. I'm trying hard to resist the zip-up blue Cinderella hooded jacket.

I AM making that pie....but will probably do it this weekend. I'm taking a pumpkin, pecan, and cherry pie to my sister's tomorrow. I'm sure the pumpkin pie will be gone before the night is over so I'll make your recipe for the weekend so my immediate family will be able to enjoy it!

Welcome to the group! We're flying out of StL. Flying out always makes me nervous. You never know what kind of weather we will have here in December. Did I mention I hated flying?@?

I need to look at the touring plans. I'm just afraid I'll be too commando though, once I start. Hubby wants to make sure I leave time for potty breaks.

Good for her that you overheard her. I hope she listens to at least some of the things you told her, so she can enjoy her trip!
