Now, that would be an ideal spot for the chairs!

I am sorry for all the heartache that you have posted about recently.My thoughts are with those affected.
Bet you cant wait for your trip to the world next month. So glad Jill is getting to have a trip also( hopefully it will hold more happy times than stressful times for her!!)
We have booked to go again this year ,to celebrate my 40th.Soo excited. 2 glorious weeks at Pop. We go August 16th-30th.Never been August before. Our last 3 trips have all been May/June time.Us Brits arent used to heat like they get in August!!!
It has been cold here, but the sun actually did come out and play yesterday. It was a beautiful sight to behold! Now, we will see what Mr. Groundhog says for our next six weeks.

You will be there after we are in school, so you can give us updates and help us through the beginning of us getting back in the swing of things. Two weeks is wonderful, too!!!

Well alas...today Wilson Co. was the "hole", so we are at work and school while the rest of you enjoy your long weekend.
Things took a different path this time. It's usually Joelton that gets us out, but Lelan said it was Hillsboro that was reporting icy bridges. Sumner County went to school, and we didn't, which is very unusual.

You know, we have met nothing but the nicest of people in all of our DIS meets. This is a pretty good place to hang out.

The chairs are unique, for sure, and I would be willing to add the word 'odd' to the description, in my opinion, anyway. I am sure they are works of lovely art to some.

It was a very enjoyable evening, I will agree.

I hope to have a little time at the Boardwalk on our March 20th arrival day. I have heard ESPN has good food, but I have never eaten there.

I think in March, I will pull them out and take pictures of their backs. Are they named and dated, or just named? I am curious. Kay will probably walk away from me when I am doing this. I won't blame her.

Your kids do that? My kids go to the exact right page or activity every time after me giving the instructions only one time.

Yeah, that's my story....

I would need two chairs for two little boys in my class, but the girl I team teach with (she does SS/Sci and I do Language) would need about seven of them! She has a group like I have had many times in the past. Maybe Paul could help them out.

For me it's when I see palm trees. There are two different routes that I can take to get to Disney. I take the one that is about half an hour longer because I head south sooner. I love palm trees I even tried to convince DH to plant one here.

There is a mall near me that does have palm trees, so I think I should be able to grow one, too. I know I couldn't, because my home is a mortuary for any type of plant, so I wouldn't want to subject a poor little palm to what it would face here. Really, I am sure I have heard plants whispering warnings to each other and trying to hide on the garden section shelves as I have walked by them before - hoping that I wouldn't bring them home. I buy fake ones, and I am happy to report, they are all thriving!

Finally caught up! School has been extremely busy lately and won't get any better until the end of March.
How fun that you and Brooklynn got to stay longer and have some no-park days! I always tell people there's so much to do there without stepping foot into a park.
OKW looks amazing! This South Floridian would stay there in a heart beat!
I need to get to DTD in the morning this summer! It's insane at night.
I love all the shopping, as always. I bought the pack of 6 pens in November and they make writing so much better!
I love the Fantasmic float! So cute!
The Poly is one of my dream resorts.
Looks like you had an awesome Fourth! I love how you can see the silhouette of the Swan in the firework shots! I haven't been in Disney on the 4th since 2005 and won't be this year, but next year if I go to UCF I'll def be there!
I'll be keeping the families that are going through tough times in my thoughts! How sad.
Snow Days sound like fun! We don't have that problem down here.
I have no idea how you guys deal with the cold weather! Under 60 is freezing in my book! I'm looking forward to this summer!

I've gotten a wee bit behind - but your fun at Boardwalk and BC with Anita's gang and the rest seems like a blast! What a nice relaxing way to spend a day. I really need longer trips so I can do that too.

So sorry to hear of all the heartbreak. I will keep everyone in my prayers.

The weather's been crazy eh? For us it's pretty normal - super cold, below zero windchills, throw in a couple inches of snow here and there. Typical winter.

Got a super busy week - Sarah's in a school play and I've got a scrapbooking weekend too. Trying to accomplish so much before I go (the guilt of leaving weighs on me if I don't). I am coming back early so I can actually see the play and Paige has a dress rehearsal for dance (same time of course). Oh well. I've made a chart of where everyone needs to go on which day. Daddy and Grandma will be fine!!

Hope you're enjoying a nice weekend!

Hope you can push through until March, then, without going crazy!

When will you finalize your college plans? It will be nice to be close to WDW. You and your friends can go over to the parks or DTD some evenings here and there to get a dose of Disney magic to booster your study skills, right?

I can take temperatures in the 50's. I prefer not to dip into the 40's, and the 30's are just out of the question.

Yay for long trips! Two weeks still was not enough, though. I will have to try for three sometime.

Enjoy your scrapbooking weekend. I know Jill would enjoy doing that.

I wish we could all see the play.

Not for one second to I want your winter!!!


************************************

For those keeping up with people who have been on our mind here, they took the three year old girl off of life support yesterday. She passed away in the early evening. This family has lost a loving grandmother and a little girl right on the heels of celebrating the new life of their baby boy. Life can sure throw some unforeseen twists and turns. Pray for strength and comfort for them.

As for Lindy, the girl in the ski accident, she is in a rehab hospital and will be for 2-3 months. They are trying to stimulate muscle power with electric stim, from what I understand. They have hooked her up with some sort of eating apparatus, so she is feeding herself for the most part. Her husband and son are still with her. I don't know what plans are, if any, for bring the baby back here to stay with relatives off and on, but I know he is a big part of her desire to work hard and reach her maximum potential. Reports are that her spirits are still amazing!

Hahaha that's so funny, I used to plant flowers every spring in a planter by our door. I finally quit when one year DH said, "Oh, are those your sacrificial plants this year?" He on the other hand kept a Poinsettia alive for four years, until he had to go on a trip without me and I was left with the care of his plants. That was the only victim but still...
We do have people in town with the short palm trees, but I want the tall ones and our wind would knock it over for sure.

Great news about Lindy. She seems like she has the right frame of mind and I bet she will amaze her doctors one day. I am so sorry to hear about the other family. It is so heartbreaking. I will continue to pray for them.

When I watched the video of Lindy I could see an inner glow about her. I'll bet she does amazing things!

The family suffering the loss of their three year old and parent will continue to be in my prayers. They will have a very long road ahead of them to find some sort of peace. These situations are so difficult to manage. Even though you have to keep going it's just so hard....

First things first I want to offer my thoughts and prayers to all of those in need of them. Sounds like it has been a tough week in DisTown. My mother and I had a family friend pass away this week as well. I hope everyone is doing ok

And now second of all: that picture of the birds on the roof of the Beach Club is terrifying!!!

Thirdly, that picture of Jackie and Chelsea is hilarious! Jackie, you should save that for a future wedding slide show or something!

And fourth and finally, I'm going to have to put "watching illuminations from the beach club" on my WDW bucket list!

Take care everyone

I am still here reading along - just want to say how sorry I am for that family - life can be so hard sometimes.

Great to hear about Lindy - it sounds like she has great spirit and will accomplish exactly what she wants and needs.

Still loving your reports. Hope you are all well.

I know you are all very cold so I wont tell you we are having the hottest summer we have ever had - Probably not as hot as you guys experience but way hot for us.

Our country is experiencing a big drought but we had rain all over for the first time in 15 days - so my tomatoes and other vegies are very grateful. Hasnt dropped the temperature though. I am not complaining cause winter will be here way too soon

Take care

We do have people in town with the short palm trees, but I want the tall ones and our wind would knock it over for sure.
I'll have to stick with the fake ones. They have to be dusted occasionally, but for a dollar here and there, I might be able to give that task to the girls.

I read a post from someone who had talked to her, and they said she had been 'counseling' a couple of hospital people who were going through infertility issues, as she had gone through that for several years before she had her son. I know she is an inspiration every day to those around her.

Can you even imagine losing a child and your mom within a few days of each other?

The family suffering the loss of their three year old and parent will continue to be in my prayers. They will have a very long road ahead of them to find some sort of peace. These situations are so difficult to manage. Even though you have to keep going it's just so hard....
You will have to enlighten men on the video. I have not seen that yet.

I am sure the young mother would have turned to her mother for comfort in lsoing her child, yet her mom is not there either. So, so sad.

Glad you got a chance to get caught up. The birds - we should not tell Dawn about them.

We are going to get into the 50's and maybe even low 60's later this week, so I will not complain. This morning was still cold, though! I am getting pictures from friends in WDW, and it is nice and warm there.
