    We didn't do one last trip because it was a surprise. I expect we'll do one this year. We usually just use a calendar (DH usually has access to a big one).

    What kinds of winter activities do you all do?

    Hmmmm sounds good ;)

    We go get a tree, much to DBF annoyance every year. :lmao: Play in the snow if there is any. Decorate the house, do cookies, gingerbread houses. We have Scrooge and Nutcracker this year. Hoping to do a trip to this cook resort in Idaho, it has skiing/snowboarding and an indoor waterpark. Best of both worlds.:thumbsup2 ohhh and of course whatever there is to do at Disney :goodvibes

    I was thinking of doing a Disney themed advent or 12 days of Christmas type thing this year for the kids. I thought it would be fun to tie into our trip.

    We just got back from Disneyland for our Trick or Treat party. We had lots of fun! We will be heading to Disneyland again in December to meet up with our friends from Canada. I could use titles for: the Christmas parade at Disneyland, it's a small world holiday, haunted mansion holiday, Disneyland Christmas trees, opening Christmas presents, playing in the snow, decorating the Christmas tree. Hopefully that helps you out with some ideas.

    Do you wear a costume for the Halloween party at Disneyland? Are there any Christmas/winter titles you would like to see?

    Hi, just checking in for Belle and I. I have fall/Halloween titles done, fall/Halloween paper piecings done, 2 banners cut, 2 designed, paper pulled for mats and have started with designing the Halloween kit. Belle has designed her banners, has paper pulled for mats, has titles designed (all but 1), and paper piecings designed and some cut. We also have started working on designing the altered item.

    Danielle,

    Is there anything you would like to see for winter/Christmas titles? I could always use titles for Christmas at Disney, including the parade, lights, trees, characters, or for opening presents on Christmas day, decorating the tree, or playing in the snow

    We have a trip planned to go to Disneyland around Christmas time. My Grandbaby's name is Elysa, I don't get to see here at Christmas but I will have pictures of her if you want to do something with that. We also just got back from the trick or treat party at Disney.
    Is there any titles that you need, trips you might be taking or any traditions?

    Hi
    I hope you had a fun time at the TnT Party! We go in 1 week and I can hardly wait.
    Yes, we dress up. I havnt decided if I will be Arizona Rita (Indy Jones inspired) or a pirate, not wench. DD will be Pinocchio and DS hasnt decided either as of yet. Nothing like the last minute to decide!

    Kristi, Hope you had a great time while cruising! Thanks for all the ideas. I'm really very flexible when it comes to christmas holidays. I still have one who is young, so anything really goes. We still build snowmen, go sled riding, have snowball fights, have a big christmas morning at our house with breakfast for grandparent and aunts and uncles, he still believes in santa etc. I could also use anything disney related since we usually go at thankgiving time. Totally up to you.....you can't go wrong!

    My update: I have everything done but 2 banners from the swaps posted previously. The banners are stumping me. I don't know why I can't get them right. I'm still thinging through my altered item. Hope to have that started next week. I'm so happy with the pieces I have made and I hope you are too!

    Thanks, that helps!

    As for us, no trips planned. Title ideas could include Christmas morning, making cookies, trimming the tree, family memories. We spend time with both sides of the family on Christmas day so I end up with lots of family shots. Hope this helps!
