Our MAGICal Christmas Cruise 2011!! Ok, so I'm mainly a lurker here on the DISboards. The only time I really post/create stuff is when we're getting ready to travel and I need motivation! I did, however, post one previous trip report and HERE is the link to our MAGICal Mediterranean Cruise, if you're interested. Disclaimer: This is the first time my small family and I have ever "go on vacation" for Christmas! All previous years it has been family gatherings, some involving hosting, some involving travel and one particularly hideous holiday last year which involved delayed flights on a translatlantic move with two small kids and a pair of cats. Needless to say, we are SUPER excited to be have booked such an unbelievable trip for ourselves and will ONLY be focusing on making the most of it. All negative-nellies and nay-sayers will be sent to the bring. Thank you. INTRODUCTIONS: My DH, military student extraordinaire, Jason (35) Myself, your intrepid-compulsive reporter, Sarah (34) Our DS, world-traveler oldest, Ian (8) Our DS, reluctant tag-a-long, Tyler (5) As you may have guessed, we lead what Paul Child referred to as "a curry of a life"! My DH and I met in college and we haven't settled down since! Since those far off college days, we've literally moved halfway across the world (and back!) and, more recently, developed a love of DCL. Now the hard part is convincing Uncle Sam that we need to always be stationed near something Disney and be consistently provided with ample vacation at the times we desire in order to take advantage of it. No prob! We had an amazing time and turns out, we could not have been more grateful for spontaneously booking a Christmas CRUISE while on board! Our life has taken some frightening turns in the last year, but we are incredibly grateful that we have each other to spend this holiday with...oh, and Mickey of course!! So, after 15 months of anticipation, our next big trip is almost here! By the time DH graduates, we will ALL be so in need of a vacay!! Most of my info will be pictures *cough*scrapbook*cough* and funny stories, seeing how we always end up with the strangest things to share! Guess we should be surprised seeing that our family motto, since the first move, has been "Always an Adventure!"
