I was a bit behind but have enjoyed catching up this happy Saturday morning.

By coincidence, I am drinking my morning coffee today from the AK mug. For those wondering it is also in the gift shop at AKL. It's one of my favorites and has a fun little "surprise" in the bottom of the mug when you've finished your drink!

Bella's poses are seriously adorable!!

Thanks for the tip on Pepper Market. I've never thought about that as an option. Worth checking out!! And how nice of that server to make the girls' meals on the house. Love that Disney magic!!

Hope you have a nice weekend visit!!

Thanks for the info about the pepper market. We almost stayed there once but for some reason we changed our minds. I have heard mised reviews about the food so I am glad that you enjoyed it.

Have a great time with all of your girls this weekend! I know you have all missed each other.

I must remember the buffet at Pepper Market in the future. It sounds and looks great!

I had NO idea about the Pepper Market! I'm adding it to our list of places to try!

We went to MNSSHP last night. We definitely got wet from the rain, but it was still an AMAZING time! The first parade was cancelled making the second one PACKED! They also couldn't get the headless horseman out, so that was a little sad! But crowds were pretty low and it wasn't chilly! We ended up with 12 lbs of candy (yup, I weighed it!) and some great pictures!

Pepper Market looks good! We were booked at CSR but then switched to POR. We will definitely have to try it someday. Lots of options!

I'm glad all you girls got to spend the weekend together. Pictures?

It looks like you had a good lunch at the Pepper Market. My brother and his family would love all that Mexican food.

I'm so glad to hear you guys had such an awesome experience at Pepper Market. Chances are we will probably eat there next month and I have heard such mixed reviews. Yours is definitely one I would trust! And what an above-and-beyond thing for them to celebrate the girls' first trip to the restaurant with a free meal! That is so awesome!

Wow, I had no idea that the Pepper Market had a buffet. That sounds like a great lunch choice, and how nice of the server to give the kids a free meal! Disney magic at its best...

I had to giggle about the informational plaque in the bathroom, because I would have stopped and read it and most likely left the bathroom, going, "Hey honey, did you know...?"

Was there anything fun at the store last night?

I ended up going to Walgreens and I picked up a few things...the Mickey & Minnie scarecrows, skeleton Mickey, Disney Halloween coloring books, light up sticks, wall decorations.
I'll put up picks of my mini haul tonight after work.
I was gonna get some of the stuff for your little girls but I figured Jill may have already done so.

The Tamarins are so much fun to watch! I wish I could hold one.

You should get that AK mug!

Hmmmm, I think we may need to venture over to the Pepper Market for lunch someday.
There looks to be some good offerings besides just Mexican dishes.

I'm happy to have my DISfriends who keep me in the "know" about the little hidden gems! So thank you!
Guess where I went today?

Walgreens.

I only went to develop pictures, though. I saw the Disney stuff, but knowing I will be in WDW soon, I held back on purchases.

You just have to keep Pepper Market a secret among us DIS friends.

We didn't spend much time in Disney Store last night. Jill was fading. We went back again today and traded Bella's Tinkerbell for a 'Reepunzel'. She would have made a perfect Tin, but she's fairly cute in the Punzel dress, too.

I think you should all show pictures of yourselves enjoying your mugs.

They had to leave to go to a party in AL, but I was so glad to see them. Three weeks is too long between visits.

Bella tells me all the time how much she misses me. The feeling is mutual.

I think maybe it was Brooklynn who said that looked like a Hidden Mickey when she put her cone down.

That's a LOT of candy!

Will you try and go back to MNSSHP again this year?

The kids look adorable! Hope to see you guys on the 13th!

You are much more of a foodie than we are, so you might not like it as much, but it may be worth a try.

It was a very nice surprise. I think the girls ate their money's worth in ice cream, too.

If you really want to learn some interesting things, check out the bathrooms at Conservation Station.

Let us know what you think. And since we don't have a December trip this year, we'll take pictures of anything and everything you want to share!

Before pictures - a request. The next time you AK mug owners have your mug full of something good, with a nice hot muffin or piece of banana bread to accompany it, please take a picture and share it with us. I am this close (put your thumb and pointer almost together) to giving in and getting one in October.

Now, you watch, after all these years of AK Mickey head mugs, they will be discontinued starting October 4th!


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


Just a few pictures from the weekend, for those interested:

Jill got to my school right as we were going into a Rescue Rex assembly. After school, we headed to the mall.

My unsuspecting daughter did not know that I had conspired with Dawn and Kellye to have the big gang there. Jill had not yet gotten to see Ty, and none of them had seen Sophie.

I told Trent not to meet us until the cat was out of the bag, because he was our decoy for waiting out by the hippo. Kellye and Heather and Heather's boys were first, and when Jill saw them, she just thought it was coincidence. No one really said anything, and we stood there and talked for about ten minutes. At one point Jill said, "So what have you guys got going on tonight?" to which Heather replied, "Well...we're doing this." Or something to that effect. Jill looked puzzled, and then Heather added, "We are here for you." Jill's face revealed the shock, and we all laughed. The she realized the others were coming, and she was very happy.

Bubby finally showed up.



Jill realizing we're about to have a shindig!



Brandy and Dawn arrive.



We had a lively group, as you might imagine.









We had some good food and conversation, with lots of laughs, as always.

Kellye thought we needed these.



She bought four of them!

Here is the whole crew of kids outside the restaurant. We couldn't stand in front of Mr. Hippo, because we had some babies who needed a flat surface to sit on.



After Rainforest Cafe, we all went to Build-a Bear.

You can imagine the chaos of two little girl parties, our gang, and then some random families.



Everyone left with a new friend.

Later, at my house, all three of my kids were here at once, for a short time.



I love them.

Today, we went to a baby shower for dear friends. Brittany went to school with Jill, her brother and Trent played ball together, and her dad does my taxes. Her mom is one of the most giving people you will ever know.






Their house is on the Cumberland River.





This is normally the man cave, but for today, it got a little touch of fru-fru.





The nursery they fixed off the living room for their first grandchild.



Sophie gave opportunity for the new grandmother to practice her baby-holding skills.



After that, we went to the mall to exchange Bella's Tinkerbell outfit for a Punzel one. Now Sophie is going to be Tinkerbell. Brooklynn is dead set on Merida, even though she will be one of thousands.

Special thanks to reelmom, as Jill used some of those Disney cards she sent to help pay for the dress.

I enjoyed the time with my sweetest girls. The next time I see them will be in less than two weeks, and it will be for us to take off to Disney World! I have much school work to keep me busy between now and then, so I am betting it will fly by!
