Ok Memom, you just made me cry at my computer at work. You are so right. I was thinking about that when I watched the news last night. I cried and could not watch much. It hits close to home. I went in and kissed my babies again while they slept. I really try not to get caught up with the frustration and it is times like this when you realize how precious they are.

Who knew the hugs and goodbyes would be the last ones? We need to learn from this tragedy. Don't stress over the spilled milk or grass-stained clothes, and try to tolerate the song being sung for the 43rd time in the back seat as you drive. Every minute with our little ones is a gift - the loud moments, the messy moments, the annoying moments. Our DIS kids are very blessed to have such loving, giving, caring, sharing parents. Treasure this day, all.
So very well said, my friend. We never know what tomorrow brings. We have DIS friends who live in Moore, Oklahoma, and I can't even imagine what those people are going through.

Did you guys see the lady who discovered her missing dog while she was talking to a reporter. She held it together better than I did, I think!


*******************************************


After coming up from under the sea, we headed back down into it again.



These people couldn't decide if they wanted to go in or not. I think they finally moved aside, and we went on ahead.

These light fixtures should have been made into fans. I think this queue is going to get really warm in the summer.





The girls visiting with Ariel.





And back outside.









At Maurice's cart, you could purchase this. I got a regular popcorn bucket - not for the popcorn, as I am not a big fan, but for the bucket itself. The girls and I think maybe John ate some of the popcorn.



Inside Gaston's Tavern again. This time, we decided to get a little something to eat.









This bad boy was three meals' worth of meat!





There is a cup of LeFou's Brew. I don't care for apple juice, so it wasn't something I cared about.



This goes to the front counter area.



I use antlers in all of my decorating...



That's all for tonight. Hope you have had a good day.

The picture with Ariel was perfect. Ariel's friend was perfect for the part.

The food from Gaston's Tavern looked so good I am ready to eat again and I just finished eating a big meal.

Praying for all affected by the storms in Oklahoma...

MeMom, looks like you had a lot of fun in the unexpected treat of getting to see the new Fantasyland additions! Your lunch is making me drool, as I overslept before work and had to skip "breakfast" to make it to work, and am relying on vending machine offerings until I can get out later and hit a drive-thru...

I am going to be in panic mode this week between work, end of school stuff for the boys, Little League, packing and cleaning house. Have a great day!
I see you are going to Aulani!!! Have a great time and please post some pics when you get back!!! I hope to go there someday!! Safe travels!!

Hugs and prayers to those who are having a rough time.

I'm behind as usual...I need to read the last two pages!! (and about 20 more pages behind.......

Memom, great pic of you and the family!! My New Year's dates are the same as you. Can't wait for the Dismeets!!

She was a good Ariel. I can't remember where I saw it this week, but I saw a picture of the perfect Snow White. I don't like it at all when the faces aren't right for the character.

I ate on the pork shank, then took it back to the room and put it in the fridge. In the next two days, I pulled some off and added a little pack of BBQ sauce and made two sandwiches with the rest.

We were thrilled to get to see everything in New Fantasyland all fresh and brand new!

Maybe you should keep an emergency pack of granola bars in the car for grab & go mornings.

Did I hear someone say it was a ten hours flight to Aulani? There is no way I could do that, unless I was knocked out. I'd love to go, though!

We will see you in December! We have a busy summer, then school starts and time will fly by, so December will be close enough to touch before we even realize it!

Hello

I know I haven't been around for awhile (at least not posting), but I'm working on your report and trying to catch up. I've kept up on FB pretty well with all that's been going on in your lives. But I'm here now looking at and enjoying all the pictures. We were there just a few weeks before you for 10 days, but the new Fantasyland didn't open until after we had left, so I'm totally enjoying this. Hopefully, I'll catch up soon. Just wanted you to know I'm here.

Well it only took me a few weeks but I have read this TR from start to current!

First I want to say I'm sorry for such a horrible experience that Jill had after the birth of baby Sophie. What a scary time that must have been for all. I'm so glad that everyone is doing well now!

Second, how have I never read a MeMom TR? I'm ashamed

Third, what a wonderful DIStown neighborhood you have here. I hope there is a house available on the cul-de-sac because I want to move in!

Hi there! I have been following along with LIFE and Sophie Kate and decided to go back to the beginning to get a little backstory and see how this all started! So yesterday I started with Baby and the Tramp and just finished! I have a lot more reading to do but I love the way you write and all the pics of the girls! I am a mom to three girls and would love one day to go with them and their families when they are grown. In the mean time, we enjoy going when we can and I love love love enjoying Disney through their eyes! I think I may be starting a PTR very soon for our February 2014 trip and I am going to try and convince my oldest daughter to add to it just like MeMom and Jill!
