    And I just missed seeing the AK tree!:worried: Our Ak day was the 7th. Those overnight worker crews work FAST!!


    Your giraffe pics are beautiful! he never got close to us, in fact he tried to blend right into the trees.


    Kadence thinks this is a great picture!

    My chicken, Kadence is in awe that Claire rode EE over and over! She did it the first time that day before and was adamant that she not ride it again. But now that her Cousin is coming with, she is thinking about it. Just recently she asked if she did ride again, would that get her another Yeti!:rotfl:



    Right there, that look, makes it worth it to go to Disney! Beautiful!

    Again, I'm so jealous I missed all the Christmas stuff by one day! UGH We didn't stay for the parade on the 7th, but it was starting as we left for dinner, and there wasn't any Christmas decor in the first couple floats.


    I was in Epcot that day and it was crowded, but it was getting worse as the afternoon/night started. It was the craziest crowds I've ever seen. We had Garden Grill at 5pm and because of the crowd we decided to skip illuminations.

    I had heard that there was a way to use other people's pins but was doubtful. I thought that the person had to be there at check-in. Guess not! Now I need to keep my fingers crossed that Mama gets another pin so I can give it a try.

    Yay for both your purchase and Claire's! Sounds like you were two happy young ladies.

    Every time that we have eaten at T-Rex, there have been line issues. You'd think that they would be more clearly marked. We love it there though so I guess we'll continue to grumble about it but still go.

    Great picture! Claire looks very happy to be meeting with Cinderella, blissful!

    I'm glad she joined the parade, Kadence is a hesitater to stuff like that too, but she really surprised us this time around too.


    LOL at re-tasting it the rest of the night. I hate that!


    Tim was very nice when we ran into him too! Too bad it was just him in the tiny hallway and we weren't able to meet the family.
    I thought I spied them in Epcot that day but I we were heading to our ADR and didn't want to be late.

    Nov 9th! We meet again!

    Well done on both having successful shopping sprees. T Rex looks amazing.

    We had thought of walking to an ADR, but I had heard that it was quite a long walk. Plus, that thought of riding a boat thrilled Kadence to no end so we waited.

    OK, Claire just won Bravest person of the year from Kadence. :worship: TOT is the one ride (beside RNRC) that Kadence is refusing to do. On the other hand, Kadence is loving all the funny faces pictures Claire and her cousin are doing. She says they are the best ones.:p



    Oh Man! Do I remember that! I was imagining you with word bubbles above your head with very bad words!:crazy2: Kadence was so worried for Claire, and was very happy to save a seat for her.
    I found all the deluxe buses to be very maddening!

    Kadence was sad. She wished we could have hung out more. I reminded her we had a Christmas party to get ready for!

    STOP IT, Jen!

    Whenever I am out the door you sneak in an update. :rotfl2: Is there a photo I missed of your new Dooney?
    I loved to read about your shopping trip to DTD. And it was nice to see to see the inside of the T-Rex restaurant. We have never been there, so that was pretty interesting. Thanks for all the pics!

    Okay, I am home now ...... if you have any more updates, fire away. :lmao:

    Kadence loved that chair, she was so mad someone was sitting in it the next time we went there.

    So... where is that picture of your new purchase? You can't tease us with it and then not show us what it looks like! ;)

    Even though I'm not a fan of dinosaurs AT ALL, I have to admit that T-Rex looks so cool!

    OH no! Really. I hadn't heard the actual day it went up. I guess I had good luck then too. I was excited to see the park decorated. It did make it a newer experience for us.
    I got some decent Giraffe pictures on the 11th too I believe. I usually can't get them very well, so I was happy.

    Those two can be pretty crazy together at times.

    I think Claire got the braveness from being with Alexis. Most likely if i took her alone first, she would probably tell me never again too. ;)

    Abby was so darn cute in that picture. Totally made it worth it to see her whith eyes of wonder.

    I had heard we had the first day of the Christmas parade, but I wasn't 100% sure it was. I was excited we did get to see that too.

    Epcot was insane that night. Especially when we first entered. Just pur craziness trying to even walk.

    Yes you can share pins, but they have become more strict this year. You must be at the same resort now and in years past that wasn't the case. Your dates have to overlap and they tell you on the phone that the pin holder has to be available at check in, but so far that has never been the actual case once you go to check in, but they can ask, I just never heard of anyone getting asked yet. They may be enforcining this now too since they made changes to it. They do have to have a reservation though and then you link them.
    We were both excited about our new "toys". :rotfl:
    We really loved T-Rex. I was so glad, because Claire was worried about being scared of the dino's, but she had a fun time. She already said she hopes we go again next trip.



    Sometimes I have to give Claire an extra push. I was glad she did it.
    That is good food, but it will come back up on you over and over and over.....
    So you saw Tim on the 8th then again?
    He was really nice. It was like we have known each other for years...we we kind of have in a way. :thumbsup2

    We were happy with our purchases. And both were expensive too.l :rotfl:
    I really enjoyed T-rex. It was one of the best meals we had on this trip.

    it was quite a walk, but the boats aren't really fast either. It's a shame that you are so close but you still can't get there any faster than taking a bus to a park...well if the bus arrives on time. :rolleyes2
    Well she only did it once. I kind of want to go through the chicken exit now too. :goodvibes
    I was so glad to have you to vent too and to tell them we were on our way. If I was smart, I would've just grabbed a taxi. much fater and well worth the money for that.


    It was so wonderful to meet you. I wish we had more time to spend together. i wish we had more time there period! :thumbsup2
    I am so glad they got smart and put photopass in there now. it really does make a difference for the parents.
    I wish we could've spent more time too. I think Claire was being pulled in all directions. So many people she wanted to hang with and not enough time to do it all. Ideally we were going to go to MK after the party, but that didn't happen, but we still had a good evening.
    We have drop dead gorgeous children....if I do say so myself!


    LOL...Sorry. I am trying to get this done...eventually. I still have quite a ways to go yet. But getting there. And now I am working on my other TR as well, so I have decided I am pure crazy. But if all goes well, I am going to try and do something this fall in the way of a possible girls trip, so it's best to get these both going and as close to done as I can.
    I think I actually posted a picture to you and Tom's facebook page when I bought it and you never answered. It might not have posted, as my phone sometimes is funky. I do have a picture somewhere a long the line though. I lvoe it. I really think it's my favorite of all my Dooney's.
    I was trying to share my excitement and you were one I thought of. I think I shared with Janet, who was happy, but she is not into Dooney's so I couldn't get the full joy of it from her...and Tim...who probably could've cared less. :rotfl2:

    She is just the worst waitress. I seem to be a magnet for these type of things.
    The food was good for us though. the girls enjoyed it. Sadly Claire had crablegs a few months ago and go sick with the flu the next day and now she never wants to eat them again.
    That chair is fun. I need a picture of me in it. ::yes::

    I did take a picture. I think the next day is when I did it. I haven't gotten that far in my editing, but I know I saw it in there somewhere.
    T-Rex is just a neat atmosphere. We had a good time there and good food.

    I really liked your inside tour of the Beach Club. Very peaceful and relaxing looking.


    Sassy children at Disney? Unheard of! :lmao:Kadence wants to know why we didn't get that picture done of her. I think we just missed it is all. It just made a list of have tos!

    I loved how we were sitting in the kiddie chairs waiting to be called when you walked by!:rotfl2: The lobby was so full, and a huge family grouping had just been taking pictures about 5 mins before you walked in. That morning we waited the longest for an ADR that I can remember, more than 15 almost 20 before I asked about it, I'd seen people get called that showed up after us. They forgot to put us in the beeper queue! Another 10 mins we finally got in.

    I NEED a No Way Hose!

    That's exactly how I felt! I had thought Halloween was pretty neat, but Christmas just blew me away. I think I will forever want to go back at Christmas time from now on!

    Your PP pics are wonderful!

    Abby is soooo cute! Alexis too! I am betting Abby is a real fireball!

    Oh Jen! Claire's dress is just gorgeous! Kadence is all bug eyed right now, asking me if she can get a new dress for BBB. I can't wait to see the finished product!

    I love this picture! Kadence is LOL'ing right now at it! You should just win any contest it is a part of!

    Beach Club is pretty, but not my favorite resort. Too many transportation issues for me.

    Claire can be such a sweet girl at times....not! :lmao:

    We were so happy to run into you again. I think if I let Claire, she would've stayed with you guys. Thats awful you had to wait so long. I remember you saying you had already waited quite awhile and I was surprised to see you as I figured you would be seated when we walked by.

    You HAVE to get to Beaches and Cream!

    I would be happy to always go at Christmas time. Well I think the best thing would be to hit it once per season...maybe every 2 months? :rotfl:

    Yes, Abby is a fireball all right. lots of personality and spunk and a mind of her own.
    We got the dress at cracker barrel and it was really cheap, like $10 I think. Maybe 420 at the most.

    That will always be a favorite picture of ours.

    You know she will pick red....or even pink. It's just how it goes. :rotfl2: I liked Claire's blonde due last year best, but what do I know about style? Or hair? :rotfl2: The cosmetology license I have means nothing!!!!!

    All the girls looks so beautiful at their photo shoot! The only thing I don't like is the couch pattern and floor. LOL :rotfl:
    In the DTD set the couch is white leather and floor blends in with the backdrop. It just looks better to me.

    I've been toying with dinner at Ohana, but so far no one's sold it too me. I know John and Kadence wouldn't be happy with the selection.



    No secret frosting, but I do have a stash of peanut M&M's that no one knows about!

    I just watched one last week about Frankie all in a tizzy about Sue's facebook and making several fake profiles and friending Sue. NUTSO!!:faint:
