Merry 'Disney' Christmas

Image
We surprised our crew of littles with the news of a few days in Orlando for this year's Christmas...  We got a deal of 4 days/3 nights for $199 ($100 cash back after a 'no pressure' club owner sales pitch) and combined frequent flyer miles to make the 'dream come true,' if you will…ha.  
 I think we picked the best day to go.  The weather was in the 70's and we waited no more than 10 minutes in line for rides.  Most rides, in fact, we just walked on up to.  We seemed to be just a day ahead of the holiday masses...
 Here I am, on the ferry, trying to explain to Joshua how things work… he was a little fearful of potentially scary rides...
 We drove the grand prix cars a couple times.  Both times, this was my driver.  She looked at me at one point and said, "This is the best day of my life!"
 Madhatters Tea Party… worst ride ever… ha



 It's a small world after all...
 We filled up our own log on Splash Mountain...





Christmas is Coming...

It's the most wonderful time of the year….  Family fun decorating our Christmas tree...  Excited to spend this first Christmas in our new house...
 December not only brings with it the Advent season, but also birthdays and our wedding anniversary… James will celebrate his 14th birthday this Christmas!  He and his best bud, Caleb, have gotten to celebrate both their birthdays this month by going to see a couple movies… Thor2 & Hobbit.  We, meanwhile, got a MUCH needed night out with our dear friends, Matt & Shauna Sigmon.  Dinner and a Musical: We Will Rock You (a highly entertaining production and tribute to Queen).  Our sweet Jana Sophia turned 11 years old this month!
 Presents...  Giggles...  Cupcakes to school...
 And then she asked, of all things, that I straighten my hair for her birthday, ha ha… Before:  Our incredible Christmas spread for our Imago Dei Church leadership party Friday night...

 Even IDC cupcakes from the talented Missie Branch (OhTasteandSee)...  AF…
