Just Had to Share

Hi DIS friends!

So, we were cleaning out some stuff in the house this weekend, and are continuing to go through my Grandma's stuff so we can get her house ready for sale, and I had to share with you all a few things.

First, she had all these mugs in her basement wrapped up and boxed, and my Mom let me have my pickings of them. Here is a collage of the six I picked.



I also found TONS of pictures that were in a box that needed to be looked through. Who doesn't love looking through old pictures. I'm going to scan some old Disney photos in at some point, so I can share with you because I met some RARE characters back in the day. But first, this.

Since you all love my Popadon so much (well, really this is for Shannon), I had to take pictures of these with my phone to share with you.

This is my Pop when he was a wee one. Kinda reminds you of Joaquin with his naughty little glint in his eye, doesn't he?



And this one I found was really the one that I wanted to share. This is his picture when he got out of basic training in the Army, right before he was shipped off to Vietnam. Thankfully for us all, he obviously came back from Vietnam in one piece.



And last but not least..............




.

Obviously, I didn't like Splash Mountain when I went on it the first time at the age of 12.....only 10 years ago you know.

The last row is not our family, but the rest of it is.

Enjoy friends, and I hope you had a great weekend!

Thanks for sharing! You certainly can see a resemblance in the mischievous grin department

That is the BEST ride photo I've ever seen.

What great mugs! I am not a coffee or hot drink drinker, so mugs are pretty useless around here, but I can appreciate a good one!

I'm in love with them. My parents have some, but I totally forgot that my Grandma had gotten them also.

That Splash photo is me in all my glory.

I'm totally a mug addict too! And I'm like "how many mugs can one person have?!" Definitely not too many.

I'm a massive tea drinker (while I do love some coffee too), so I love a mug. The problem is, I love GIANT mugs.

I saw that picture of the mugs on Instagram. I love the Hunchback and Bambi one! What a great find.

OMG, YOUR DAD DOES LOOK LIKE JOAQUIN! Whoa.

LOL @ the Splash photo! Never thought I'd see the day you'd be terrified of Splash at one point.

I'm excited to see those photos with the rare characters!
