We had a great time in Disney. 10 relaxing days, in which I had to stop and figure out what day it was. I call that a gauge of a good vacation- when your brain can really shut off from the outside world. We’re on the Magical Express on our way to the airport, and I’m trying to hold off on the real-world for as long as possible!

I’ll pretend that I’m still looking at this for as long as possible!


We had a lovely trip, and got to watch the nighttime shows at Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. We saw the amazing Osbourne Festival of Dancing lights (quite a sight if you’ve never been!). While Katelyn cried and didn’t want to ride some of her favorites like The Barnstormer, Logan rode everything he was allowed to. He rode his first big roller coaster- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad- twice, and Splash Mountain too. He wanted to ride with Uncle JJ, and loved all of it.

My favorite park day day was Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas party. We started the day by getting Katelyn dressed up like Cinderella at the Bippity Boppity Boutique. She sure cleans up nicely, don’t you think?


Afterwards, we headed to the holiday party. It sure did get me in the Christmas mood! Plenty of hot cocoa and cookies to go around, short lines for a few last chances at some of our favorite rides, holiday carols sung by Mickey and the gang, and the most amazing fireworks display I’ve ever seen! We ended the night by watching the Christmas Parade, which was beyond wonderful. Between the snow falling on Main Street, the Toy Soldiers and seeing Santa himself come down the street, I was in Christmas heaven. I think I’m spoiled for any holiday parades now though!

We’re excited to go home and see the puppies, I heard it snowed while we’ve been gone, and that Barley loved playing in it. There is a lot to do and look forward to in these next few weeks… We’ve got a tree to put up, cookies to bake, garland to hang and presents to wrap! Bring on the Holidays!!!

So we’re lucky enough to have become Disney Vacation Club members. For those not familiar with it, it’s basically a time share on Disney property. We’re getting ready to go on our 3rd trip in 3 years to the House of the Mouse and I can’t wait!

We’ll be down there for 10 days with my mother-in-law and brother-in-law, and will celebrate both my Birthday and Thanksgiving while there. 🙂

For me, there is nothing like being on a true vacation- away from the daily grind of the house, and the call of my home-office. Add in a bit of Disney magic to that, and I’m in heaven!

Here are a few pictures from last year that I’ve been looking at to get in the mood. Updates from this year are sure to come!
