The glow sticks for the dark rides are a great idea! My nephew, who's 14 months, didn't seem to mind the dark this trip. But I fear next year's trip is a different story!

I can't wait to see your purchases from Disney shopping!!!

Liam and Danica are too cute!

Kids about that age seem to go back and forth on how they react to Disney.

Thanks about L & D.

Liam is gaining more words weekly. He is still WAY behind for his age but he is making progress. We are working on action words/verbs right now. He can count to 10. He can't say "three" and has a hard time with "four" so him just skips them and goes to 5 and continues on. Thanks for asking.

Thanks!! And yes Liam has grown a lot since that trip.

Funny shopping story....I was out running errands today and saw a little wallet/pouch that I thought would be good for Disney...but I quickly decided against it because why buy a plain one when I can get one with Mickey Mouse on it next month! So I'm adding that to my shopping list.

First of all I'm so glad to here Liam is continuing to make progress with his speech. That is simply fantastic Heidi!!!

And I'm with you...there has been a lot of things lately I've wanted to buy, but then I think about it and I'm like I can get that at Disney LOL!!! One of my first stops when I get there is a clothing store to buy a few shirts for the rest of the trip LOL!!!!

Heidi, your kiddos are so beautiful, and have grown so much since your last photos! The addition looks great. We put one on a couple of years ago, and I think you'll find that it is well worth all the trouble and mess. Great update!

What a great start to your last day! I can't wait to hear what kind of shopping damage was done!

I can't believe how big your kids are getting. Especially Liam. To compare the pictures of him from this trip to the pictures of him now is amazing. I see it in my son all the time, they look more and more like a little boy and less and less like a baby. It's incredible.

I'm hoping to pick up a Halloween Tshirt at World of Disney the morning of our MNSSHP to wear that night!

Thanks! The addition hasn't been too messy yet....we haven't cut open the existing house to it yet. I'm really looking forward to all the added storage.

It's hard to imagine that Liam was a baby just like Danica only 2 years ago.

More shopping coming up

Day Nine Continued….

We spent quite a bit of time in the UK shops. Mainly because it took me forever to decide what to get and what not to get, and for whatever reason it took CM Tino forever to wrap up my purchases…





Is that not the cutest cup and tea bag thingy that you have ever seen? When I got home I drank tea from it everyday for a month! And to this day I only drink tea from that “mug”. The mug was $9.95 and the tea bag holder was $4.95.

Now the reason it took me forever in that store was because they had a tea cup/tea pot set with Alice on it at a very reasonable price. I wanted for my daughter. The problem was that I didn’t know at that point if I was having a boy or a girl. I struggled with buying it, then maybe having no one to give it to. I can only hope that they still carry that design when I go back next month. It’s mine! Or actually Danica’s!!

DH and I had Fish and Chips at Yorkshire County (two orders plus tax was $17.02). We had a nice table on the patio and DH was chatting with another guest when I came back with lunch. I vote the fish and chips here the best in WDW!

I keep up with my DIS status I needed to finally find the stain glass windows in France of the Beauty and the Beast story. It took many tries to get a picture that came out half way decent.







No trip to France is complete without a stop at a Bakery….in real life or in Epcot. We sat at a little table outside the shop and enjoyed our goodies.

DH’s Éclair $3.75


My Raspberry Schuss $3.95….oh my god! Delish. I getting another one next month.


I love to shop in the Japan department store Mitsukoshi… I buy something every time I go in there.

We added to our rice bowl collection ($4.50 and $6.50). Got a couple little sauce dishes for when we have pot stickers at home ($3.50 & $3.95) and picked up chopsticks for the kids ($2.95 each).



DH also got this for himself:


Naruto plush $16.50

I seem to remember watching the Candy Lady in Japan. I think I took video because I love the way she talks. I’ll have to see if I can find the file.

Danica has gotten so big, and she is just as cute as Liam.
