Oh, I love this idea. Let Ponzi come up with a dating site pic for Nebo (just for fun Smidgy). Let's see how cool Nebo could look.

Ya gotta figure that if you get a group of people together all holding candles that sooner or later, somebody's hair will catch on fire (Did I just hear Nebo breath a sigh of relief?) and that will be the end of the candle part of the candlelight processional.

Older and wiser, they saw the error of their ways.

We do too grow plastic flowers!

Actually, one of the most amazing things I've seen was when we lived up in Churchill (just a little south of the arctic circle). Winter runs from September to June up there. But when it does finally warm up, the barren tundra just explodes with color. I guess the plants have evolved to do as much as possible in the short time they have.

I've never seen it. I guess I've always thought, "I live it, why do I want to see it when I'm on vacation?"

Maybe next time.

Is there an extra cost for the processional? Or maybe she just wandered in looking for a place to sit?

Sounds nice and no... I don't believe the "official line."

I agree! I wish we had caught the Candlelight Processional on that trip, but we ended up at the Osborne Lights and I think it was a good choice. Jackson was in awe of the lights and music, actually Garrett was too

They say great minds think alike. Between you and I, I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing.

I was curious to see what the picture looked like as well. Glad I fixed it.

Yeah, I remember now. I had no idea on the contest question. I'm not good at remembering lines from movies, TV, etc
Is there anything we have here that you don't get? We could do like an exchange.
Has anyone ever heard of Toffifay chocolate candy? Its made by Stork and very hard to find. When I was in Switzerland it was everywhere and I love them!!!!


Voila.

Pretty prince(ss) puppy. Looking very regal. "My daddy carries me to the car so I don't get my paws wet."

Okay, so now I can comment more seriously on the latest chapter. Let me say that the apostrophe thing was so difficult to write! It's like my brain kept trying to auto correct my fingers!

I'm with Smidgy on the Candlelight Processional. I'm a big fan, the last time we went Neil Patrick Harris was the narrator. The funny thing was that we saw him earlier in the morning at Soarin'. I saw him and would have kept walking had he not spoken. I immediately said to DH, "It's Doogie Howser!! Yep NPH is not Barney to me from How I Met Your Mother. He remains Doogie Howser.

DS and DD1 absolutely love Journey into Imagination. We ride it several times every trip. One of their favorite parts is the fun at the end of the ride. An extra bonus for DH and I is that after riding neither one of us can get the song out of our heads so I go around singing "Imagination, Imagination, a dream can be a dream come true....." Thanks for putting it in my head Nebo!

I will be sure to tell the kids that one of Mr. Nebo's most favorite rides is the Figment ride so when we are able to meet you and Smidgy you can ride it multiple times!

I like the soup at Le Cellier as well. We don't typically get the dining plan, the kids don't eat enough to justify the cost. If we have APs, we usually get TIW. I like to go to Le Cellier and just get the soup for my meal with pretzel breadsticks. That soup is so yummy!!

I like that you called LC the basement. The other item of note to me is how close the tables are to one another. You can literally become "family" with your neighbors!

I like the Canada movie as well. That song gets stuck in my head as well...."Canada, my Canada...".

Great chapter Nebo!

Anyone remember Menudo on ABC?

Well, yeah... 'cause I don't want muddy paw prints all over my seat!

And her name is Piper.

And I do know Toffifay. They advertise it a lot around Christmas time. If you want to try a Wunderbar, just PM me with your address.

I looked through the Nebo photo album and I couldn't decide which picture should be the one for his online dating profile.

Cool like Fonzie?



Well, the hair would be dishonest. Let's try this one instead.



Or maybe we should do even more retro, while keeping that cool vibe going.



Nah.... I think I like the normal, natural look...



Pick your fave! Nebo's imaginary love life depends on it!!!

Beautiful puppy Ponzi!

And, you've outdone yourself. I think that with the 3rd option, you may have restored the damage you've done to Smidgy in the past too!

I pick the third.

You know, just fun loving guy who likes sipping Black Velvet shirtless on the beach.
