Oh wow, I've never seen the plants spelling "Dino" with the license plates!

Seeing that random Dinosaur ride photo makes me wonder what it'd be like to work at the register for ride photos. They'd get to see all the silly pictures!

Next, we would see bugs. Very large and very loud bugs.





A million billion bugs.



As with humans, some ham for the cam, and some hide away in the background.



Rockin' the 3D's.
















Uh oh!





Now let's find a parade spot.



Next time: We love a parade!

Creative use of license plates, huh? Certainly fits with that area - tacky in a fun way!

As for seeing the pictures, yeah, I bet they get a good laugh out of many of them.

Taking a flat family is an idea, but I would rather have the real thing sharing dinner and fireworks with us.
As always, you are more than welcome to come down for any part of our trip!

Yay! I am all caught up.. I was only 25 pages behind...

I am also very thankful to the wonderful disfriends i have met over the years.
I would also like to say an extra prayer for all of those who have been displaced since the hurricane. I have been volunteering in Seabright, NJ and it is just so sad to see the devastation. I am very humbled and appreciate ever little thing that I have now... you never know if it will go away.

i am leaving for Florida today. It has been a tough few weeks (well of not the weekend I was in Disney lol), so I am thankful for this vacation.. Disney here I come!!!

If we could, we would go four times a year - spring, summer, fall, and Christmas - but we just can't do it. I think we can keep breathing if we can go every other Christmas and a have a long summer trip each year. The bad part is when it comes to spring and fall. Jill likes fall better, and I like spring better. How I wish we could do all of them every year, but right now, it's not doable. I told you I was thinking about that extra job, but then I thought about how much I treasure my weekends, whether they are just relaxing at home or seeing the girls. I'm not ready to give that up. I'll have to think of something else.

I wish I could be doing the manual labor part of the helping right now. I don't have much money to give, but this week I have a ton of free time. I could be helping however needed.

Have a blast in The Sunshine State!!!

The girls look adorable with their bug eyes! I wish you guys could have seen my 2 aunts watching It's Tough To Be A Bug when we were on our trip - they were hysterical They were shouting and screaming and laughing so hard! My auntie in her 70's was amazed by the "little fella" butterfly at the beginning and asked me "can you see him too or is he just for me?" When the bugs leave the theatre first (from under your hiney!), she screamed bloody murder and grabbed my leg so hard she left a bruise!

That gave me a giggle - bought back funny memories of our trip to WDW 2 years ago - it was so hot (we dont get that sort of heat over here) and our first day in the Magic Kingdom - I thought I was going to pass out in the heat so my mother was pouring cold water over my head. You can imagine the looks we got I could just see people thinking whats that woman doing to that poor girl in the wheelchair

Even worse though - for some reason the rest of the family were lining up to have a go - whats up with that

Anyway - gave me a giggle.

A bit early but I just want to wish you and everyone else in DIStown a Happy Thanksgiving and to say how thankful I am to have found you all - living my Disney dreams through you all over there.

Have a good break (sorry bit long winded)

Happy Thanksgiving Dis Town!



Memom, I hope you are enjoying the parade this morning as you prepare for you feast on Sunday.
I saw that Jill and crew are on their way to Kentucky, will they be spending 3 whole days with MIL?

I can't wait to see pictures of your Thanksgiving feast with everyone!

I would have enjoyed laughing at that scenario! Not the bruise part, of course...

Thanks for the Thanksgiving greeting! So glad we can help entertain you while you are so far from your Disney 'home' while you are between trips.

We cannot come down. Saving our pennies for next year, though. You can send me a helping or two of the 'Ohana bread pudding, though, as a consolation.

Not sure how long the license plate thing has been there. I have seen one other picture of it before, but I think it hasn't been too long ago.

It's not something we do every time, but Brooklynn seems to like it, so whenever she says something about it or when we need a filler, we go see it.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

Yeah, that trip is going about as we expected already.

You know what, I didn't even turn the parade on. I didn't have any of my kids to watch it with, for one thing. I started doing some stuff in the kitchen, and I was listening to Disney music, so I just kept that going. I have checked into FB regularly throughout the morning to see pictures. I saw Brook's Mickey balloon picture.

Our Thanksgiving feast will be completely nontraditional. I told Jill to pick a Disney restaurant as our theme, since everyone would be tired of holiday food. She couldn't think of anything off the top of her very tired brain, so I thought about Whispering Canyon, which is one of Trent's favorites. I sent her a text to say which one we would be doing, and she said the telepathy had kicked in again, as that is the one she thought of when she had time to think. It fits the 'warmth' mood we need for this holiday.

We are you glad you did, too. It's always fun to get to know new friends. I hope you get to meet some of the DIStown gang on some of your friends. They are all very nice neighbors.




And to all of DIStown - we wish you a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends, fun, and delicious food! Have fun making new memories. We send prayers for safe travels wherever you go. Thank you for your very special friendships!

Haven't posted in awhile, but I've been here reading and enjoying your trip and pictures. I miss WDW! I did get to get a quick trip in to DL as I picked up my DD at the Amtrack station in Anaheim (she could've come all the way to San Diego, but this gave me an excuse to get a trip to DL in ). But as much as I love DL, I don't get the relaxing, vacation feel that I get when I'm at WDW. Guess I need to find a way to get back there!

Hope that everyone in DisTown has a fabulous day!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
