Merry Christmas, Jen!
I'm so far behind on everyone's TRs. This was an usual before Christmas. Played some at the parks, but didn't get ANY Christmas shopping in this year, I got so many orders for my R2-D2 crochet hats. Everything that was purchased was done by dh this year. We are off to a park again this afternoon.
Merry Christmas to you and your family Jen! Thank you so much for the card! I still have not sent mine out this year. I feel like such a scrooge! Hope you have a wonderful holiday!
Just stopping in to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas!
I'll have to come back to catch up later.
Jen, Merry Christmas to you and your family (I'll be back to catch up soon)
Jen, we hope you and your family have a magical Christmas!
Take your time. I'm not writing fast anyways!
Merry Christmas!!!! I know lots of people who don't send out cards. Thats just fine.
Thanks Kathy. I hope you have a very Magical Christmas!
Merry Christmas Kathy!!!!
Have a fabulous day Karin!!!!
Jen - Are you and I the only ones who are still DISing on Christmas morning?
I have one more gift to wrap, so I am forcing myself to sign off.
Have a GREAT DAy!
LOL. I was! I had time till Claire woke up, which Paige actually went and did it, though she acted like she heard Claire stirring. I know that wasn't true.
I am going to post a few off topic things here. yes, I know I am slacking, but I think a lot of us have been lately, so I don't feel quite so bad.
I am going to post a few pictures of some things that have gone on this month. It's been a busy one. I decided today I need to get those pictures edited before it turns into spring and I still have holiday pictures on my computer.
This was Claire's Santa Meet at the Breakfast with Santa in early Dec.
And these are from her Christmas program at school.
Her birthday was Dec. 10, but we celebrated it on Dec. 9th with family.
I want to stay at AKL just for the giraffes! How exciting to look out the window and see one standing there.
I love the picture with Claire and Santa, her dress is so pretty. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
I loved the giraffes too. It was neet just looking out and seeing them munching away.
Thanks I think I got the dress last year before Christmas for dirt cheap. I can't remember where though. She had several dresses this year to wear since most from last year still fit amazingly.
YAY for slacking!!! I've been awful, Why does this year just seem so much more crazy busy?
Kadence is jealous again. She wants Angus the horse too. I'm thinking she can wait for Easter...
I could have sworn I put a little Merry Christmas pic on your page! I'm loosing my mind.
I am here, Jen. A little late but can't wait to read all about your family cruise.
I am a huge slacker this time around. I just have had no time to get everything done. And it seems to get easier as the days go by....the slacking part I mean.
Claire sleeps with Angus every night, along with the new AG dolls and her old time favorite "Penelope".
YAY! You won't have too much to catch up on. I am going VERY slow on this.
Some more off topic posts.
On Dec. 20th, My sister (Gail, who went on the cruise with me) and I took our girls to see Disney on Ice, 100 Years of Magic.
We really enjoyed it. It was nice to get another dose of Disney.
On our way. Abby is not so pleasant. My sister got in a car accident about a week before and her van is in for repairs. This is the rental car, which Abby HATES! It does not have a DVD player and she is hilarious about this. She constantly says how she doesn't like this car and it makes her sick. We ask her why she is sick and she just shouts "This car! This car makes me sick!" I guess she is a bit spoiled.
We arrived and Claire wanted popcorn. Holy cow thats pricey. It was $12 for the bucket ...BUT free refills, so that made it better. And we did refill it later and all the girls got to have some. Alexis and Abby went with a snowcone in a special cup.
We were in about the 5th row off the ice, so we had really good seats.
I took a TON of pictures. many came out a complete blurry blobs. I had my point and shoot camera and I am so not used to trying to get that to work right in dark, moving conditions, so these are the best i got.
The Alladin segment was fantastic. They did some really neat jumps and we had toe tapping music.
Mickey and Minnie were so darn cute.
In the Beauty and the best segment They had beast and then he transformed into a prince. I have to say for about the first 5 minutes I swore it was a girl dressed as a guy. But he was so much taller and muscular that it had to be a guy...just very girly looking. And Belle must truely be in love with him, because her facial expressions were so real. She just longingly looked at him as they skated around. It was almost comical.
And then many more Prince and Princesses came out.
Goofy was great!
More Disney on Ice.
They had a "small World" Segment which was fantastic! Most of my pictures were just blobs though.
And then it was time for an intermission. Gail took the girls to the bathroom and Abby refused to go. I guess she thought she might miss something if she left. So she came and sat next to me, and munched on some popcorn.
When the rest came back, I decided to see about getting a program as a little remembrance. I knew it would be a Disney price, but holy cow! $20!!!! i said, well let me see it and looked through and it was nice, but the guy then said you also got a "rose' (plastic, but Claire was eyeing it) and a little stuffed Squirt, so that made the price more bearable. i got it and Gail bought one for the girls to share.
I browsed through the program and the lady next to me was reading it. LOL! I took my time going through it so she could see it too.
Soon the 2nd half started.
The Incredibles were so funny, especially the Dad.
The Lion King part was fun, but I found it kind of strange that when it started, tons of people started screaming and cheering. I guess I missed something there?
All too soon it was time for the finale.
After the show we made the slow walk up the stairs. I got seperated from the rest of them and met them at the top. By the time I got ther Abby was in meltdown mode. I guess she was mad that Gail wouldn't let her run freely up the steps on her own through all the people. So Gail was holding her and she was flopping all over. We headed to the bathroom and she was crying and telling Gail how she is such a mean Mom. LOL. yeah, she just went to Disney on ice and a little over a month ago was on a Disney cruise and Disney World. Real mean Mom.
Then we made the mistake and Claire bought a snowcone in a cup with the last of her spending money. UGH. Abby was freaking. Now she had one already, but she wanted a new one. She picked up her own cup and whipped it. Then I asked her if she wanted the popcorn bucket and she did, and looked right at me and dropped it. She was in rare form.
We finally made it out to the car and she calmed down a bit. Though then we heard how sick she was in the car.
Gail wouldn't let her eat anything else because she had been filled up with junk. Gail was afraid she would throw up in the car. First think she asked was "BopBop (thats what my nieces call me), You got any snacks in your purse?" LOL. And I didn't, so I honestly could tell her no.
it was suppose to snow a lot that night, and driving home was a bit snowy, but not near as bad as i thought and it did not stick to the ground. (and nothing on the ground the next morning).
We were tired when we got home and Claire had her last day of school the next day, but it was a lot of fun.
I'm sorry but Miss Abby is cracking me up with her sayings and fit pitching. (Although I'm sure it wasn't so funny to you guys at the time.) I wish ya'll wouldn't be so mean to her all the time.
Seriously, Disney on Ice looks like a whole lot of fun. We never have anything like that come even close to our hometown. All we ever get is monster trucks, tractor pulls and lawnmower racing. Yep, we live in the Deep South!
THe Disney on Ice show looks like it was a lot of fun! I have a feeling I will be pitching an Abby-like fit tonight. I am going to a concert in Connecticut tonight and feel terrible. I am not looking forward to the drive home. Thankfully I am meeting my friends there so they won't have to deal with cranky Katie for longer than the show, and during the show they can easily ignore me lol.
