Before leaving Disney World, I loaded up on goodies from the Writer's Stop, Seashore Sweets, and Karamell Kuche. A few of these we ate on the way home, several I left with DD (along with a few inedible gifts), and then I made a tray of treats to take with us to a family Easter dinner.




Caramel corn & Caramel apple (which I'm waiting until we get there to cut) from Karamell Kuche and Chocolate Chip, Carrot Cake, and Sugar Cookies from the Writer's Stop
Hi Barb! Glad to hear that you are home safe! Enjoy your Easter and your Easter dinner. Those treats look so good!

Before I post my final live updates and get started on the updates I've received today from three new live reporters, I want to first thank Rachel for helping me out this week. We stayed at the Wilderness Lodge for the first 3 nights of our trip and the WiFi was great there but then we did a split stay and were at the Swan for the rest of the week. The WiFi and actually even our AT&T cell phone service was pretty terrible there. So bad that I had to go next door to the Boardwalk just to get the few pictures that I posted to upload to Photobucket. If I had had to do this for the other reporters' updates, I probably would have had to pitch a tent in the Boardwalk Resort lobby.


SO A GREAT BIG THANK YOU TO RACHEL!!!
