I loved the photo of the three of you in denim - very nice! Even from 2012 to 2013 the girls are so much more mature. Such pretty young ladies. I especially liked the carousel photos.

The suspense for your 2014 plans is killin' me! Can't wait for the reveal.

Love the photo of you and the girls in the denim clothing!

DO NOT start your PTR until you are finished with your TR. Take it from me...it's impossible to keep up with two reports at once (I think I've updated my TR when it was the PTR I updated and vice versa).
Thanks so much for this tip Kathy - I think you saved me yesterday.

And I love those pics you posted on FB. You all look like you had so much fun with it!
You should do that with Bradey - especially since he started going to Disney so young - I bet you'll have some fantastic Now n' Thens to post!

I haven't purchased any new VB in such a long time... I loved their Hipster... but then I REALLY loved their Saddle Up - but then they went and changed it and I don't like it nearly as much anymore... I really need to make myself a bag that I can carry every day at home.

I hope you get some work done today.

Mmmm... Those sound fantastic!

Hi Mo! I am very happy to see you here! I was starting to worry... I know life has you super busy right now.

I am working on a custom order... I know - it's been forever since I've shown pictures... It's been the darned stocking project that has been a huge time suck for me. LOL Thankfully, I am getting to the point where I have 4 more ready to assemble.

Thanks! I think she looks so much more grown up because Alli did her make-up... V doesn't normally wear it and doesn't like wearing it. LOL

You should!!!! It would be so much fun to see! I love doing it - although it's kind of a pain to organize.

Thanks for talking some sense into me. LOL I almost hit the button yesterday... I am glad I waited - but it won't be long. By the end of the week for sure.

You girls all look gorgeous in your latest photo.

I will be on the lookout for your new PTR.
Thanks Ashley! I know - it crazy how much they have grown and changed in just a year. I am very excited to start my new PTR!

It's always nice when he cooks... I dont mind cooking myself - but I hate the "deciding what to make" portion of it. It will be crazy between now and Thanksgiving - I have a TON of half finished projects that I need to work on... My first priority is the stockings - they have to be done asap - so I can get pictures taken with all of them together before I have to mail Brian's family's over to The Netherlands. Then I have a SSP that must get finished asap too... I have a feeling I will be working on both of those this weekend.

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

I worked in my sewing room all day yesterday - once I got up there. Sometimes my commute is the hardest part - and it's only 20 steps. I was able to get this order quilted. I hope to be appliqueing today.

I have to run to town right away this morning though. I hope to be back early so I can work all day.

It was Zumba last night - it was a good class. We are scheduled off next week. I think we only have 2 more classes after that. I still have not signed up for the next series of classes - I just can't decide if I want to drive to town in the winter.

I better get going and post my next set of Now n' Thens. Have a super awesome day everyone!

I really enjoyed reading your trip report. You make me feel like I am right there with you! Hope I get to Dis enough to collect a good now and then display......although this first trip we kind of blew it in the quality picture taking department. Toddlers and extreme heat + overstimulation = random not planned pictures.

I'm the same way, every time I get a bag that I like they re-style it

I did break down and buy a hipster in the new Disney fabric though......
I wish they would just sell the fabric!!

I am agreeing with MO on the Test Track pictures. On that most recent one, the look on your face is like "what in the world is this crap?" Do we not like the refurb??? Ya'll crack me up!!!

Again, great pictures of you and the girls (from the weekend). Victoria looks amazing! But too grown up

Looking forward to hearing all about that and how it ties into your upcoming PTR.

Your now and thens are my favorites. So fun seeing the girls (and mom) over the years. The TTs and everyone's interpretation are too funny.

I am happy to report that Disney found a set of pictures that were missing from our PP. I knew they would be problematic because the photographer was having trouble with her equipment. Luckily it must have been an issue with the scanner thing and not her camera. We took more pictures up main street a bit right after so I knew the exact time we took the missing ones. Still need to do my edits.
