That steak at BOG looks amazing! We had BOG for lunch one day, but you'll have to wait for my TR post to hear all about it.

Isn't the inside of the castle just beautiful? I was so glad to be able to go inside, look around and take pictures...just AWESOME! I'm a little jealous that you got to meet Beast. He is one character that I have never met but would like to.

OH NO...I can't believe they messed up and gave your PP+ card to the wrong people. I'm guessing since you have posted PP pics that you were able to get the situation resolved. We didn't have PP+ (just the regular) but I always take a picture of the back of the PP card as soon as I get it just in case I lose the card. This time I actually took a pic on my phone and my handheld camera...I guess I was just overly worried...LOL.

Hope you don't mind but I thought I'd share them trying on their costumes the other night. They look soooo cute!!



Hope your able to get everything done for you new nephew this week. Can't wait to hear what you're making.
Your kids are adorable! Love the costumes!

I've probably already told you this, but, my two boys don't look anything alike either, but both of them look like their dad. Its amazing to me....

Just wanted to let you know that Kat is doing fantastic. She has the most amazing attitude about her situation and life in general. She actually had a pass to leave the hospital tonight - and I was very jealous because she got to meet some of the Baltimore Ravens and Orioles players.

I've been kind of missing in action because I've been at the annual state planning conference. Since its in Harrisburg, I get to commute each day. One more day and then I'm back to my regular schedule. Catch up later.

Happy (belated) birthday to the girls! I didn't know it was their birthdays.

Love that ‘rose’ napkin! Oh, I wanted to eat that cupcake SOOOO bad! The atmosphere of that restaurant is to die for! It looks so gorgeous!

I can’t believe the CMs didn't seem to care that your PP+ card was gone! How can they not realize how important those photos are? They should have offered to hunt down the family that was in front of you. Didn't that family wonder why they were being handed a PP+ card?

Hi Jane!!! It's great to see you! BoG was certainly fun! Definately a "do-again" restaurant, just not sure if we will be able to squeeze it in on our next trip or not?

What a bummer about the cold - I sure hope the Dr. is able to give you something so you don't have to deal with it on vacation. If I don't see you before you leave, have a great trip. And please stop by when you get back, I would love to see a few pictures - or if you are doing a TR, please let me know. Have a fantastic time!

We would definately go back there... However - that is 4 must-do sit down restaurants in MK now... LTT, CP, BoG and CRT... We are going to have to alternate CRT and BoG - it's just too much structure, and I don't feel like we were able to do much on our MK days because we were worried about meals. I would just be happier if we could stick to CP and LTT.

I think that trying it as a qs is a great idea! It's certainly a fun place to eat, I am just not sure how much "fun" it would be eating in one of the other diningrooms - they are beautiful - don't get me wrong... but the West Wing is kind of off to the side and a LOT smaller than the other two... Those seem to be more... hmmm... restaurant-y? And the West Wing is more secluded and small, so it's just nicer and sort of has a romantic special feel to it. IMO - even though it is VERY dark.

The girls made Ratatouille one time with their grandmother (as far as I know, that was the only time they have ever had it) - and they LOVED it... It was more of a "stew" and what was served to Alli at BoG was more of a casserole... One bite of it, and Alli said it tasted nothing like Grandma's and it was not at all what she was expecting. Had it NOT been named "Ratatouille" - she may have eaten it and enjoyed it... It just didn't have the taste or texture she was expecting, and I think that was part of the problem? I am sure your recipe is just fine.

I am sorry - we did not have the opportunity to have lunch there. But I think it would be so worth it to do so... We would have swtiched ours to a lunch ADR, but we already had all of our meals planned - and that would have required me to change everything... It worked out perfectly to keep ours as a dinner reservation.

It was very cool! We've met Beast before - he was in Epcot for our 2008 trip... but it was nice to meet him again.

That's what I thought... But nope - not a care in the world. I told the CM I'd originally gave the card to that she should have been more careful with it, as it had all 10 days of our vacation memories on it. Even that didn't phase her.

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

I did not have the best day in my sewing room yesterday... This project for Josh's brother & family is snowballing, and taking me much longer than I had anticipated.

I really wanted to do something special for them for Christmas, especially since this is Thomas' first Christmas...

I started off wanting to do Christmas stockings and a tree skirt for them. As time was coming closer to this week - I ditched the tree skirt idea for next year, and decided just to do stockings for their family. Then, I had a bright idea... (which may have come from Nini last year? I can't remember now?) - but I decided I would make the WHOLE family new stockings... Brian and family in The Netherlands, Josh's Dad and Step-Mom, Josh's Mom and Step-Dad, Josh's half brother and us... That's 12 stockings... It doesn't sound like much... but they are a lot more detailed than I realized. Leave it to me to not do anything the easy way. Anyways, the plan is to finish the stockings this week (not going to happen)... Take a photo of all of them together, and each family will get a framed photo of the stockings together and their set... So, no matter how far apart we are... We will always be connected for the Holidays...

First of all - I walked into my sewing room yesterday morning, only to find the new quilt batting I had purchased the other day from Joanns, had bled through and left spots on the pristine white fabric I had quilted for the cuffs of the Christmas stockings... So, 4 hours of work... unsalvageable. I was so upset about it - I still am.

I was able to requilt enough to get started on Brian's stocking... And by the end of the day - his was done... Phew... but it gave me a a clue that these stockings will NOT be done this week. Grrr... I will do what I can, but I will be working on all of these stockings in my spare time over the next several weeks, so I can finish them in time to send them over and have them arrive before Christmas...

I did take a photo yesterday of my progress... And some of the fabrics I am using for this project...


I don't like doing fonts on felt... but after the issues I was having with the white fabric/batting... I don't care. LOL I am putting their names on felt anyways - it just makes things so much easier in the end. And let me tell you - these stockings are far from "easy" - I would much prefer to make a bag - I think it would be quicker.

So, today I am back in my sewing room... Hopefully I will get something more accomplished. I guess - at this point, I would be happy with one stocking per day.

Last night was Zumba... The girls from work are trying to talk me into signing up for the next set of classes - I have not decided if I am going to or not... Not that I don't like it, but our roads tend to get quite trecherous in the winter time, and when I am driving home, it's dark - I am a sucky night time driver... So, I just can't decide what I want to do. I will for sure resume in the spring, if I don't do it over winter.

I will be doing another update this morning... I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Day 9 Part I

The girls and I had just lost our Photopass + card to the family in front of us at BoG...

I was really so upset... Literally 10 days of memories... Poof! Gone!!

Yes, I had done everything a good Diser is supposed to do... I took a photo of my card the moment it was in my posession on the first night. I kept it with me at all times... I even wrapped it with the cord like the CMs at AK taught me to do.

And then it was gone... I was almost in tears.

In my mind, I knew that we would be able to get our pictures back, but it was the whole "not caring" attitude I received from the CMs that bothered me more than anything. Especially the character handler who gave it away in the first place.

So, the girls and I split up...

Victoria decided to try for the last Aladdin/Jasmine Meet n' Greet for the day.

Allison and I headed to the Photopass booth at the front of the park.

When we arrived at the Photopass counter, I had nothing to give them - yes I had taken pictures of the back of our card - but they were on the laptop back in our room.

So, the AWESOME Photopass CMs working the counter that night were very diligent about making sure that each and every photo that was on our card was recovered. Allison and I had to think very hard and try to remember where we were on any day that we used it - so they could use that photo to track down our card #, from there they were able to retreive all of our photos. PHEW!!! One problem solved.

Now, my next issue... Which, perhaps, bothered me most. Through NO fault of their own, this family now had our Photopass+ card, and all of the added benefits (free ride photos, free dining photos...) we paid for. Not to mention - they now had access to our ENTIRE vacation's worth of pictures... I explaind my issue to the Photopass people, and it seems that no one had ever brought this aspect up before.

So, the manager came over and started sorting through this problem. First he transferred all of my photos from my original card to my new card... Then I made him verify that they were all there... Sorry - but these photos were very important to me.

Then, he called and deactivated my original card... So, these poor people (I do feel bad about this part) could use it to take pictures, and they could even use it to get all their ride photos added and their meal photos... but once they got home, they would not be able to view them or access them. I did feel horrible about this part, because it was not their fault they were given our card - it's not as if they stole it. Ya know?

But from the Photopass end of it, they are AWESOME - and they did everything they could to make it right. And they told me - to be wary of who I give my card to - the Character Handlers are infamous for losing track of who the cards belong to... So, take it from me... be careful with your card.

The Photopass manager gave me a new Photopass+ card... And the smart Diser I am, I took a picture of it right away...


And Alli and I were on our way... It only took us an hour to get all of that resolved... No biggie - right? Hmph...

Needless to say - we never got to use the FPs for Winnie the Pooh that Bernadette gave us.

Alli and I decided to walk through the stores on the right hand side of Main Street...

We stopped at the Confectionary for a treat for Alli for later...


And then I stopped at the Jewelery store to get the much coveted Mickey Head sterling silver earrings that I had been oogling over for the entire trip... I was so happy to have enough souvenir $$ at the end to be able to purchase them.

Victoria was able to meet with Aladdin/Jasmine...

She was now at the VERY END of the line for Tiana and Naveen... Again - she had made it there just in time for them to put the rope cut off right in front of her.

The nice CM that was there had told her that if they finished early - they would let her sneak in at the end. So she waited.

Then the nice CM was replaced by probably the crankiest CM I have ever met... She was soooo GROUCHY and MEAN... I should have written to Disney about her - because she was awful!

When Victoria had told her that the CM that was there had told her about possibly getting in at the end of this line... The new CM scowled at Victoria and told her she would have to wait - there was no way she was getting into that line... And that CM was so nasty to each and every person that came up... Really, really nasty.

So, we waited at the beginning of the new line for an HOUR...

And then once they opened the line again, we waited for another 30 minutes for Tiana and Naveen to come out.

Waiting...




Starting to get dark when they finally come back out...


And, finally - it's our turn!





Tiana and Naveen spent a lot of time looking at all the signatures on Victoria's pillowcase... they really enjoyed looking at it and commenting on all of them.








Was it worth the wait? Probably not? But it was Victorias last signature on her pillowcase, and Tiana and Naveen were super nice... They did spend a lot of time with us...

Alli and I decided to get in line for one last ride - since we were right there... Haunted Mansion...


One final photo in front of the Castle... And it is one of my favorites...


We exited the park down the other side of Main Street...

And a few final photos for this trip...

"See Ya Real Soon"




Link to Day 9 Part J

D~

**********As a follow-up to the whole Photopass debacle, since we have been home and I have edited all of my Photopass pictures... We did end up with several more photos on our card of this other family... Thankfully - it appears that they only used it a few more times... A set of pictures in front of SSE in Epcot... A set of pictures in front of the Hat at DHS... and a set of pictures in front of the TOL at AK... They did not use it for any ride photos or meal photos - so clearly, they had no idea what they had in their hands. If they would have, I would have had photos of their name on their meal receipts - and I would have attempted to contact them and send them any photos I may have had of theirs on my CD - because I am nice like that, and I know how important vacation photos can be. But - that did not happen, I have no idea who they are, and no way to contact them.

Whew! Thank goodness you got you pp+ pictures okay. But sorry it took so much of your vacation. And space in your mind worrying.
Live your pictures!
Can't wait to hear the details if your next trip.

I wouldn't be surprised if the other family figured out that they had the wrong PP+ card when they found out that they now had two of them. I suspect that the only reason they accepted your PP card from the negligent CM was that they really thought it was their card. At some point they stopped using your card which means they found their own card. At least the PP people were good about finding your photos.

We had another family's photos from 1900 Park Fare Cinderella dinner on our card. At least they got the prints

I'm glad you were able to recover your photopass pictures for the cd. Sorry about the rude cast member at Tianna's meet. That last picture of you and the girls in front of the castle is beautiful.
I've never tried making Christmas stockings. They seem like a lot of work and I'd have to hand embroider all the names.
Work was busy yeaterday. I had a very rude customer who had insisted that someone had called her about a missing cd. No one had she called and spoken to a new associate who had told that she couldn't find it and would make a new one. She that got busy with someone else. I came back from lunch had had no idea what was going on. The customer hadn't even told us which kiosk she'd used. We have two Fuji and Hp. Whe I figured out I remake it which took about 158 minutes to print. She then made some greeting cards to print and it took about an hour to print. She felt that because the cd took too long to make and cards took an hour to print she shouldn't have to pay for them. While all this was going on, her two daughters were yelling and screaming and she was encouraging them. The manager gave her the pictures , cards and cd for free just to get them out of the store. She then said she was call the district manager becasue the first associate said she had the cd which she had never said. So basicly she lied about the whole thing.

D, forgive me. I swore I responded to the BOG dinner/loss of photopass card yesterday and my response wasn't there.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your steak dinner at BOG; I loved it too and will definitely have it again.

I cannot believe the whole Photopass card fiasco. And for the CM to have an "I do not care" attitude is just wrong.

I'm glad they were able to rectify it, but wish it could have been done faster than an hour. But the good news is you got all of your photos back.

I love the photos with Tiana and in front of the castle.

So glad you got the earrings you had been wanting.

What a nightmare with the PP+ card! So glad you were able to get it all worked out!

HM at night...I would love that, but unfortunately that is another ride Jillian does not want to do at night, YET. I am sure it is coming, though. She IS an adrenaline junkie, after all.

The stockings are going to be GORGEOUS! I absolutely love the fabrics you are using. Sorry it has become such a hassle, but I am sure you will get it done. You are such a hard worker! Those are bound to become family treasures for everyone!

Lovely Update

The stocking material is beautiful love the color combinations. That was one of my first projects when son (27) was little. Never did one for Kate (23) because my MIL knitted some for them. Have to say that knit stockings are not the best idea they stretch too much when loaded. I am going to consider making new ones as my first back to sewing project. Have to locate patterns again I do not have the old ones still.

Cold has kicked in my asthma and they admitted me to the hosptial yesterday. I am now 3 days to flight. Please keep me in your thoughts so I can get out of dodge and to WDW to recoup. It's a good thing I am an anal planner and everything is ready to go except the CVS run for scripts that are nearing refill. I am thinking they will let me go home tomorrow and I will be good to go.

If you don't mind I will post once or twice to let you know how it's going I am not really a writer more of a lurker. I am always reading just not always posting.

Hope you have a great day!!
