  • I'm glad November is over tonight...I LOVE December!
  • I'm ready to stay in my pjs over Christmas break...I need some low key days!
  • I'm nervous about my re-do of the 3-D ultra sound on Thursday.

Day Twenty-Nine of Thankfulness

Day Twenty-Nine of Thankfulness!

I'm thankful for:

Christmas magic with children. I cannot wait to have our Christmas traditions with TJH. I've had fun the past couple of years with my students and their thoughts on the whole idea of Christmas. It's fun to hear what they have to say and what they believe.

Disney Wedding: The Parks!

So, we spent our Thanksgiving in Disney! It was so fun! My best friend L got married to B in Disney! It was a fairytale wedding...more details later! This trip will be couple of post because we took over 500 pictures throughout the week!

Here are the days in the parks! SOOO fun! I love Disney and I cannot wait to take Tucker!

Our good friends, S and S live in FL now and they have annual passes to Disney so they came up and spent two days with us!  S's grandson was down for Thanksgiving too, so we had him with us in the parks!

The Mr. with his Mickey ice cream!

Wednesday we went to Magic Kingdom...I was able to ride most everything. :)

On Dumbo!

I LOVE LOVE all the Christmas decorations in Magic Kingdom and all over the Disney properties.

This is in the Grand Floridian hotel...a real ginger bread house that is life size!

It smelled SOOO good!

Light and firework show was amazing!! 

Thursday we headed to Epcot.

H and M...our roomies for the week! Such a fun couple!!

L and B...the bride and groom! It was fun spending time with them in the parks!

And on Friday, we had breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends. And it was just us 6 girls in the park! SOO fun! L wanted to spend time in Magic Kingdom with her best friends and we did just that! I didn't take many pictures of that, but it was so fun!

The Bride and Eeyore...he loved her!!

Next will be the rehearsal dinner!

We had a chance to celebrate Thanksgiving with my Dad and R early this year. It was great to be all together. It's been three years since R's kids and my Dad's kids have been together.

K added a little something to the Mr.'s place card! :) It was after some funny stories shared.

The two pies with the colorful leaves were made by the Mr.

The whole gang!

B and her best friend J!

I have such beautiful sisters!

We enjoyed great food and company!

Happy Early Thanksgiving!
