I love the veggie trays! I showed them to Scotty and he thought they were adorable too. I think next year I may make the one with the peppers.

Your tree is so cute! Love the topper!

Oh stop. You are NOT old. Evan has plantar fascitis and he's 13! I felt bad that you missed Illuminations.

I'm sorry you were having foot issues too. Thats a bummer especially when on vacation. Cynthia said that you ladies had a blast. One of these days I'm going to have to tagalong on one of the ladies only trips.
Yes you should! And Jenna too...and my BF Marina who has decided she can't stand it and wants to tag along too. LOL!

Oh man, I felt so bad, nothing worse than starving kids and no food to be found...during F&W. It was a yummy margarita though! Thanks Michael

I had a blast hanging with you guys and it's always fun to close down a park, especially when your body is still on west coast time.

She did mention that margaritas were involved.
I nursed that puppy! Had I known we'd end up having a margarita I'd have skipped the cider that I had with my pumpkin mousse. But then you'd have missed me raving about how good and cheap that combo was for the rest of the week. It was cool having the margi though as before our when I met up with you and Pat there the night before there wasn't time and I felt mildly deprived so this rectified that loss.

Aw, definitely still talking! I wish I'd had Jeff and the kids along, they would all really hit it off I think. One of these days in Cali! Love your kids, they are all just adorable and so much fun. Great personalities. Loved the fact that random people showing up and tagging along didn't phase them a bit.

So...which veggie turkey wins? I hope you will post picture!

Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving too.


It's been all soccer all the time so I have little time to think. We've got a game this morning at 8:00 and then one at 5:00. We check out at 1:00 and will probably hit up the Olive Garden for lunch- carb up- haha. We're going to drive home tonight. I just can't see spending another $150 when we can be home by 1:00 am, I'll be back promise to resume my report.

My turkey tray was a hit, thank you. I like the topper too and believe it or not, Michael picked it out.

One day in CA for sure. I think everyone would hit it off too. Are your kids phased when you meet up with weird Internet people?

Just stumbled on your TR and it's wonderful! It sounds like you guys really enjoyed your trip "home." We were at Disney earlier last month (split between BCV and AKV-Jambo) and had a WONDERFUL trip, it's just such a great time of year to enjoy Disney.

Also, don't feel bad. We ended up with five bags of groceries for just two of us!

Can't wait to hear about the rest of your trip!

Glad to have you and that you're enjoying the report.

I agree, it is such a great time to visit. Less crowds, great decor and events, and love our DVC! We just stayed in southern Utah this weekend in a standard room- there for soccer- and it felt so cramped. Definitely spoiled. I can't wait to try BCV one day!

I feel better about my groceries. I'd rather have too much than too little. Do you cook at the villa?

It's funny as they've met more from a playgroup board I was in while I was pregnant with Evan, than from the DIS. Our trips haven't seemed to overlap with other DISers which has been a little odd, other than the cruise FE and seems like only Kendall really met folks.

We did meet up with Jordy on our Cali trip a couple of years ago and Eric and I spent a night at another DISers house in OR but other than that, they know that I travel with DIS folks but they haven't met anyone else.

LOL!

But no, I don't think it would faze them a bit. Kind of weird if it did considering Jeff and I met online. LOL!

We haven't "cooked" much in the villa, just mainly bagels, cereal and sometimes microwaved bacon for breakfast. We ended up getting some fruit and other snacks, plus sodas, beer and a bottle of Jack in our grocery order. We don't even order bottled water because we have a Brita pitcher in our Owner's Locker.

I always forget you and Jeff met online. I met Jenna online and a few other nonDisney friends. I have a new group of Trader Joe's friends I'm hopefully going to meet Friday for the SLC opening. Josh is so cute. He wants to miss school and go with me. I freakin' love that kid!

Tell me about the Brita. DH wants one for when he's at the fire department. I know nothing about them. Does it filter tap water?

I bet it's so nice to have an Owner's Locker. If we went more than once every two years, I'd highly consider it but we just don't make it out that often. Who do you order groceries through?




Update coming up.....

Sorry my update has taken so long. We went to St. George, Utah this weekend for a soccer tournament right after an early Thanksgiving dinner. Every time I tried to begin an update, I was interrupted and it’s so hard for me to continue once my train of thought is broken. Hoping this goes off without a hitch. In case anyone wants to know, Gabby’s team placed 2nd in their division. They won two and lost two. It was a very small tournament. She had fun but is now complaining of a sore foot. I think it’s more swollen than injured.

After the MSEP, the plan was to meet up with Michael and the kids as well as Jenna and her crew for EMH. My gang had been very busy during the parade. They were able to do Splash twice and BTMRR once. We all met back up in front of Splash:






We all wanted a ride on a zero wait POTC. It is so odd but POTC at WDW never seems to have a wait but POTC at Disneyland always has a wait. I wonder why that is? Disneyland’s is superior but if you only know WDW’s, it’s pretty amazing too. I always try to get a decent photo but adhere to the no flash rule so this is generally what I end up with:










After POTC I was dying to go on The Jungle Cruise. There is something magical about the JC at night.

Chris and Josh ever enthralled with the backside of water:



Our skipper that night was by far the funnest skipper we’ve had at WDW. I wish I would have got her name. And speaking of names, I received a very nice letter back from WDW about my letter on what an amazing time we had with Loukili at 50’s Primetime. They assured me that he would be notified as well as his bosses would also see the letter of praise. I really hope they follow through. I always like to know when a patient, family, or coworker thinks I’ve gone above and beyond; I’m sure CMs are no different.

Everyone was wanting a little Tomorrowland time. How could I resist this on the way...I did have to pause (barely) and awe as you can tell from the blur.





I get giddy when the Castle changes color.

The men and kids decided to go on Space while Jenna and I opted for The People Mover (Tomorrowland Transit Authority). It’ll always be The People Mover to me. It moves people right? We chatted a ton and it was so nice to catch up. And per usuall I snapped a few blurry iPhone pics:





continued in next post....

After a double spin on The People Mover, without having to go through the line again , we met up with the others and all took a spin on Buzz. Buzz is always a good time but I think it’s in need of a refurb. Our joystick turned clunky and the ride got stuck twice and neither time was where I could pump up my score.

Think we mean business?



The best I’ve ever done:



Nate and Jon. They’re hunters so this makes sense. LOL!!!



Gabby and Emma:



We closed the park but I’d be lying if I said I remembered everything we did. I didn’t take that great of notes or too many pics. I promise the other updates will have more detail.









An emptying Main St:



You have to wait until the end to get shots like this:







Love MK at night. I think we did a lot in the 4 hours we had.




Up next: the best water park day to date.......
