    They were reluctant when we started, but once Mickey started taking shape, they really liked making him!!

    I just looked at your pics and I have a picture of Nicholas doing the same pose as Timmy with Walt. I have to look for that!

    I absolutely love your Mickey snow man! I can honestly say that is the first mickey snow man I have ever seen and I HAVE to make one of those. Looks like a beautiful sunny snow day. Our day was bitter cold and mostly overcast with lots of blowing snow.

    UGH...you have been getting hit left and right!! No heat is just AWFUL...it happened to us once or twice when I was growing up (also due to a storm) and there is no amount of blankets that will warm you up. :scared1: This youth group came to talk to our congregation at chuch yesterday and they said they recently spent a couple of nights in a 6 ft high snow igloo that they built themselves, in upstate NY. BY CHOICE. With big smiles on their faces! All I could think of during their presentation was BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!:eek:

    Really want to see the Nicholas/Walt pic!! I bet alot of us have one- it seems so obvious when you walk in there, doesn't it? :)

    The snow day was half blowing cold, half sunny- we went outside when it was sunny, and it felt FABULOUS!!!:thumbsup2 And thanks!! I was so excited we made him. He has since gone to snow man heaven...:littleangel:

    Timmy got the Mickey kit in his stocking- Santa found it in Michaels or AC Moore for $5!!

    Rosie...innocent???? :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2: :rotfl2:

    Thanks Tammie! Me too!! We drive down to the Outerbanks for Spring Break in less than a month, and we're all wondering if we should bring our sleds! :rotfl:

    I hope you can convince Sean to ride TSM next trip; I bet he really would love it! Were you able to figure out what was holding him back; was it the noise in line?

    That's so sweet that you and Tim got to have that time together; I know that must have been special for you.

    I would love to see your photos from opening day at MGM if you can find them!

    The only thing we could think of with Sean is that right now he just doesn't "want" Woody. :confused3 Even just yesterday, he was playing with Buzz, Thumper & Steve (Blues Clues) and I kept on saying, "What about Woody? Let's get Woody, he's our friend, too". But he just said, "NOOOOOOO". It's a phase- which will hopefully end for him before we go again.

    It's always nice to spend one on one time with the kids, isn't it? :lovestruc And I will work on getting those photos! But I really don't know how many I took- I was really into the video camera on that trip, and I video'd a LOT. I remember Pods having a meltdown because we were lugging around the camera- remember when they used to be so big? Well, that's what we had. :rotfl:

    I will have to look for it. I didn't organize my pictures really well when I first started using photobucket, so I have to do some searching. It's funny, because he was only 12 then and it was right before he turned into a "full-on" teen. I love that time in his life.

    Ellen -

    I searched and searched for Nicholas and Walt and I can't find that picture. I suspect I am not have uploaded and haven't been able to find it on my computer. This is totally NOT what I should be doing this morning. No wonder I am always late for work.

    Anyhoo....just so my trip to photobucket wasn't wasted, I decided to post this picture. Nick reminds me of your boys when he was that age. So this was taken on the same trip - summer 07.......

    I so miss that age!

    Rosie- NO ONE has seen your halo...it doesn't EXIST!! :rotfl:

    J/K- you are a sweetheart, and i know all of your consumers (is that the right word?) see your halo shining every day. :littleangel:

    Thank-you! I wish I could say, "Oh yea, that's something I just whipped up with pipe cleaners and kleenex" but really it is a kit that i got in a craft store (for $5!!!!! :yay:).

    He reminds me of Tyler! Is that who he reminds you of? So handsome! How old was he here?

    Oh, and I'm sorry you couldn't find the photo you were looking for, but you can just admit it now- there is no such photo because I was the FIRST mom who ever had the idea to put their kid in Mickey's spot! Mmm-Hmmm- that's right! :rolleyes1 :rotfl:

    Hey- I'm driving through Deleware on the way to and from OBX at the end of the month- would you have time to have a quick meet for lunch the day before Easter? I'll be driving back that day, and I remember last time we stopped to eat in DE on the way home. On the way down we take the ferry, so I'll miss that whole area I think you live near- right? Anyway, pm me and let me know!

    Oh! And did you see? I got a TAG!! :yay: :banana: :woohoo: :yay: I'm so excited!! Thank-you TAG FAIRY!!! :goodvibes

    He was about 12 then. Yes, he reminds me of Tyler and one of Nick's friends reminds me of Timmy.

    I swear I took that photo, but now I am wondering if maybe I never uploaded it to photobucket.:confused3 I have to search my computer for it.

    I just sent you a pm! I would love that and I think I have the perfect place if you're coming up I95!

    Sorry for the long break- just busy with lots of other commitments (also I made 2 12x12 Shutterfly books while they were 50% off, and that was a little time consuming!)- but I should be able to finish this up in the next few days...

    So, we were on our way to meet the rest of the family at RnR. Now, Timmy is one of those with a split personality when it comes to thrill rides. One minute, he is all go go GO! And the next he is all no no NO! He's like a box of chocolates- you never know what you're gonna get! So thus far he had never gotten up the nerve to go on RnR or ToT. But today he said he was ready to give it all a shot. While I waited outside with Sean, Pods & the Ts headed up for a ride.

    [​IMG]

    A few inutes later, my phone rang- it was Pods, telling me that Timmy had begged out and to be on the lookout for a big chicken exiting the building...but all I saw was this woman, who was really appropriately dressed for a day in an amusement park-

    [​IMG]

    I really, really hope she's a CM on her way to work in costume!! Anyway, soon after Timmy came out- but said he just really needed to use the bathroom, that's why he left. :rolleyes2 But, ya know, actually, it turned out to be true! Because when he exited the rest room, and Pods & Tyler exited the ride, he said he was ready to go! So off T&T& I went- and can I just say, the kid REALLY sucked it up, because we were in the front car-

    [​IMG]

    Usually people say Timmy looks a lot like Pods, but I have to say, the family resemblance between Timmy & I is uncanny in that photo!! :rotfl2: Anyway, Timmy LOVED it, we were all so proud of him!

    We had 5:30 ADRs for 50's Prime Time, so we headed over there-

    [​IMG]

    We checked in and proceeded to wait...and wait...and wait...

    [​IMG]

    Seriously- we waited over half an hour. Thank goodness nobody was complaining. Actually, even Sean was really good and patient, although I don't think he could have lasted much longer- waiting is not something he does well (have I mentioned how incredible the GAC is?? :worship: :worship:).

    Up next- dinner at 50's PT and the last of the viewfinders....

    Yeah....You got a tag! How awesome!!!!!:woohoo::banana:

    Sorry to hear that you had to wait so long at 50's. I can't wait to hear what you thought of the food though--it's one of our favorite places, so I hope y'all liked it as much as we did!
