    We have always had real trees. I love them, because they really smell nice in your house. And we have always had real candles, it just adds to the atmosphere.

    Thank you, Rosie and a Very Happy New Year, to you too! :hug:

    Thank you, Ann - we always had a tree like this (minus the Disney ornaments - they are an addition Tom and I have started ;))
    Our trees are only put up on Dec 24 (ours went up on Dec 22 - because I love to look at it with the presents under the tree! :rotfl2:) so they are fresh when we light the candles. We usually leave them until Jan 6 (which is a holiday), but I would not dare lighting the candles again. ;) :laughing:
    And I can imagine that with you gone your tree might have dried up a bit, but I bet you were able to see a lot of beautiful trees at WDW. :goodvibes


    Thank you, Christine! I hope the new year is filled with lots of good memories for you too! :hug:

    Thank you, and a Happy New Year to you too! :hug:
    Any chance you will be at WDW this summer?


    Thank you, Jen! Pixie loves having the tree - it's her new playground. :lmao:

    Thank you, Tammie, I hope that the New Year brings you only good memories! :hug:

    I am glad you like our tree. :thumbsup2
    And wishing you and Dave a wonderful and Happy New Year, too! :hug:

    Glad to hear that you are thinking about correcting the "missing pirate buffet" experience. Can't wait to hear all about it. :goodvibes


    Happy New Year, Abby!

    Pixie loves the tree - it will be very irritating for her when we have to take it down. :rotfl2:

    You are going to WDW a month to early for us ..... but ONE day our trips will overlap and I cannot wait for that to happen! :goodvibes

    Planning our February trip!!!!!

    Day 5, Wednesday, February 22

    Day at sea

    We will most likely not get up too early and order a Continental Room Service Breakfast, as we will need something light with all the food we have planned all day.

    [​IMG]

    After that we will deliver the last one of our fish extender gifts.

    [​IMG]

    If we feel up to it we will join one of the ship's tours

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and then head to the Captain's Reception for a meet and greet with the ships officers and some cocktails.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Around midday we will head to Palo for brunch and enjoy some of the fine food they offer.

    [​IMG]

    I guess it will be early afternoon before we leave. It will then be time to take a little break and we will most likely relax on our veranda with a nice drink in hand.
    I am planning on going to another "Anyone can cook" demonstration, hopefully this time we will learn how to make Lobster Ravioli.

    [​IMG]

    And yes, you get to try them. Maybe we can catch one of the movies or maybe we can take a dip in the adult pool.
    I guess sometime during the afternoon we will need to pack everything up as we will have to put our luggage outside our stateroom door that evening. Then we will change for dinner and head to our assigned restaurant of the day.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After dinner we will put our dinner clothes back into our suitcases and put them outside. We might take a night stroll up to the top deck to enjoy the night air.

    [​IMG]

    Then it will be time for one last sleep on board the Disney Dream.

    Oh Abby, how could you do that to me?????? :rotfl2:

    Yes we are still trying to decide if we want to go to Remy or not, but it seems they have changed their menu a bit! :woohoo: The menu Brenda and Jay had is really up my street. :thumbsup2
    You might have just pushed me over the edge. I need to talk to Tom about it and then change my planning haven't I? I still hold that reservation and it looks very likely I won't let it go ............

    Now I wonder how they feel if I bring my own wine? :rotfl2: I love a good glass of Silverado and on a Disney ship it would be extra special, but as far as I know they don't offer it.

    Thanks so much for giving me something else to think about, Abby! :hug:

    Happy New Year! I loved the cooking class but can't do the ravoli one because I am allergic. Hopefully the next time they will offer different classes?
    I posted some food porn on my trip report of WPE. I know you love that place:rotfl: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2824151&page=4

    Happy New Year!
    They do an awesome apple strudel cooking class. It was fun, as this is a Viennese speciality and the pastry chef did an excellent job! :thumbsup2


    That's what you do most on cruises ...... eat out of this world good food! :rotfl2:
    Hope your lunch was equally as good! :goodvibes


    Well, little lady - this is the plan for day 5 ...... where's YOUR planning? :rotfl2: :lmao:
    I had a few other things that kept me occupied, but I will update lateron and I have a few surprises!!!!!! :woohoo:

    I AM KEEPING MY RESSIE AND I NEED TO EDIT ONE DAY OF MY CRUISE ITINERARY - I'LL POST THE LINK HERE LATERON!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Abby! We are both very excited about it! :cloud9:

    Yep, we did the apple struedel class and I made my own when we got home:)
    My Grandmother used to make them all the time when I was little. But since I am allergic I couldn't do the lobster ravoli class.

    Here's some NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



    Tom and I have been discussing if we can wing some "extra" vacations with going to WDW twice this year and we have decided that


    WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!! :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo:


    So here are our other trips. Tom takes one week off (actually only 4 days as one day is a holiday here!) and we are doing two trips that week.

    April 28 - May 1:
    We are going to

    [​IMG]

    staying at

    [​IMG]

    Citea again. I got a pretty good deal on a 2 bedroom villa for 6 people (I always go for these, even though they offer one for 4 people, but the 6 people one has two upstairs bedrooms, while the 4 people one only has one upstairs and a sleeper sofa downstairs).
    We will get APs again and this might indicate another trip over Halloween! ;) :woohoo:

    May 4 - 6:

    I will then go back to work for Wednesday and Thursday and since Friday is a holiday for schools here we will leave in the very early morning for

    [​IMG]

    Italy. We are going back to Lignano and staying at

    [​IMG]

    the Aparthotel Esperya again! We'll return on Sunday evening and will have been able to squeeze TWO vacations into only one week! :thumbsup2


    Stay tuned ....... even MORE news to come!!!!!!!!

    Well, I promised you more news!!!!!
    So here we go again!

    Yesterday Tom came home from work and told me that he had a surprise for me! The surprise turned out to be a package from our friends the Fishermans (disney67), who we had met face to face for the first time on the Disney DREAM last August.

    We could not wait to open the package!

    And we have never seen so many beautiful and thoughtful gifts crammed into a package!

    First there was this hanging photo ornament, which we will put up once our Christmas tree is gone!

    Okay people I am STILL not done YET!!!


    Well, today Tom came home and told me that he brought home ANOTHER surprise for me!

    I could not think of anyone who would send us another package, and could not believe WHO it was from.

    RON, our favourite server from the California Grill had sent us a present!!!!

    [​IMG]

    Needless to say I had to open it up right away!

    [​IMG]

    This envelope was inside - it had a very nice card from Ron stuck to it!

    [​IMG]

    The gift inside was giftwrapped ........ Disney style! :lmao:

    [​IMG]

    and giftwrapped some more! :rotfl2:

    And this is what we found inside

    first off ....... lots of my favourite, Mickey and Castle confetti!
    Ron knows that I love it - I always pick up whatever is sprinkled on the table and take it home! :laughing:

    And this was inside ......

    [​IMG]

    A matted map of the MK and its resorts, with 5 pins on it!

    [​IMG]

    a MK pin

    [​IMG]

    one for my favourite resort, the Contemporary. We are staying there this summer, club level ....... I cannot wait! :cloud9: :love:

    [​IMG]

    a Fort Wilderness pin

    [​IMG]

    a Poly pin

    [​IMG]

    and this beautiful 40th anniversary pin!

    We were floored by his generosity towards us! :goodvibes

    But that was not enough ....

    [​IMG]

    He also sent this wonderful ornament! Needless to say I will take good care of all these keepsakes!

    THANK YOU SO MUCH, RON, IT TRULY WAS A MAGICAL SURPRISE!!!


    Okay, please stick with me for a little longer as I still have some more news, but this time they are trip related!

    Oh, Karin, what a wonderful couple of days of surprises!!! I am so happy for you and Tom and no one deserves it more...you are one of the sweetest, kindest DISers I've ever had the honor to "meet". We still have the Disneyland Paris magnet on the fridge and have candles in the lovely candle holders close to our Creche...and Sophia puts the ornaments on the tree and I tell her about our friends who sent them to us from Austria - which I show her on the globe (being only 3 it's still a bit baffling;)) and I show her photos on line of you and Tom. :goodvibes

    I am still hoping that one of these years, sooner rather than later, we will meet and share some Disney fun in person.:thumbsup2 (I want to dine at California Grill with you two;))

    :flower3:
