    Time for some gingerbread house:

    Some miscellaneous items around the GF as we walked around:

    We wanted to go to Ghasparilli's (I'm sure that is NOT spelled right), but forgot it was closed. We walked up to the second floor where they play the music and hit the little coffee shop there.

    Nicki took pictures of all the cupcakes, and we all had a cup of coffee.

    Finished with our tour of the monorail resorts, it was time to head back to the MK to try and do some rides before our dinner reservation.

    We stopped for some photopass pictures. I have to say this was THE BEST photographer we have ever had:

    Which way now, George?

    I've seen that look many times before over the past 26 years from my DW. The only difference is there is usually something in her right hand ready to knock some sense into me. :rotfl::rotfl2:

    I agree completely with you about GF. Gorgeous resort, they had the best decorations hands down (though WL was very nice too!), but I would never stay there. Way too stuffy and snotty. But great pics of the decorations!

    You are an updating machine! Finally got caught up. Looks like you guys had a great time. Des is such a beautiful lady. Even in her scared picture at ToT she managed to look so pretty.

    What a fun day in MK!

    Although, I do think I would have lost what little patience I have while waiting on the kids to get to Dumbo. :sad2:

    Love all of the pictures...especially the group hat picture in Storybook Circus.

    So fun that y'all did a monorail tour. I hope we have some time to do that this December.

    What awesome photos!!! You guys are a riot! :rotfl2:

    Loved all the resort photos with the Christmas decorations... Disney does such a great job. So funny seeing shorts and Tshirts in the middle of winter - looks like it was great weather. :)

    I loved all the pictures!!

    The one of you proposing to Mark is fantastic!!! It's by far my favorite and I think you should frame it and hang it somewhere!

    Great update! I love all the decorations at the GF. From everything I've seen the CR decorations do seem to be pretty underwhelming. I'd be disappointed if I was staying there.

    Love all the shopping pics!

    Congrats on the August plans! So exciting!

    I'm glad you took the time to go around the resorts and see the Christmas decorations. One of these days we'll get down there to see all of them. Julie and I are talking about trying to go in 2014 for a 40th birthday celebration...maybe.

    Once again, wonderful photopass pictures!

    I love those Mickey and Minnie aprons! If I cooked at all I would probably get one.

    I've never eaten at Peco Bills. I just like Columbia Harbor House and Casey's too much.

    I agree that the decorations at the Contemporary weren't that good. Well, other than the huge Mickey wreath, I really liked that!

    The Grand Floridian was decorated so beautifully. There was a photo pass photographer by the tree when we were they so we got some pictures. I do feel like you though, too stuffy! It's one of the resorts I really have no desire to stay at.

    Yay for being booked for August! Mom and I passed through Old Key West on our way to DTD and thought it was beautiful.
