Thanksgiving and WDW

Hello All,



Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!!! I hope you have a great Holiday this week.



Well we just got back from WDW and we had a GREAT time!!!! I will try and make this short. We were there for my mom's b-day this time instead of Justin's and we went to the Rain Tree Forest Restaurant and had lunch and they bring out a Volcano (there is a picture of my mom with the it) it has 3 or 4 huge brownies, ice cream and whipping cream - YUMMY!!! On Sunday we were in Epcot and going to go on Soarin and I thought Jarod was behind me with my sister and dad - well Jarod went past me to go with my mom and I did not see him so when I turned around Jarod was not there so needless to say I started to freak out cause I could not find him and my sister kept saying he is with mom so I rushed through the crowd to get up to my mom and there he was - I thought I had lost my child in Epcot it is only a small place to lose him (LOL - HUGE!!!) so after my heart starting beating normal we were able to enjoy the rest of the day. It was supposed to be warm but when we got there they had a cold front come so it was a little chilly but I did not care cause I was in WDW. This is the first time I was able to go there where we did not have to wait forever for the rides - the longest we waited was about 20-25 min and that was on Soarin, Test Track and the new Toy Story ride other than that we basically walked right on everything. Most of the time it took us longer to walk to the loading dock than we did to wait for the ride - NICE!!!! On Wednesday we were in Magic Kingdom and my dad was talking to one of the workers and they said that on that day there were only 15,000 people when normally at that time of year the average is between 40,000 - 45,000 people so you can tell from that there were hardly any crowds - even walking around there was no one around. I am going to put on a little video of Justin on The Runaway Train (Big Thunder Mountain) you may not see much cause I was riding in front of him and did not get a good picture but you have to hear his little scream - it is sooooo cute!!!! The boys loved all the fast rides just like I do so it is nice to know in the future I will have riding buddies. But we did have one exciting thing happen when we were there that has never happened before - we decided to ride the train from Main Street in the Magic Kingdom well they were taking forever to get going and we over heard one of the workers talking and they said something happened then just after that we saw the paramedics come down the row with a stretcher and we all had to get off the train. I do not know what happened it was interesting but scary for that poor family. Man I would hate to get all the way there and then have something like that happen to one of us. I know you are probably bored by now so if you want to hear more about my trip come and talk to me.

Trick or Treat

Hello All,

Well Halloween is over and we all had a great time. It was nice to have the day off and spend time with the kids and not have to worry about getting back to work after the parade was over. For the parade Jarod was a Jujitsu fighter and Justin was Spider man (thanks to a friend letting us borrow the costume). That afternoon we got the outside set up (strobe light, fog machine, lights etc) so Mark could scare the older kids - he is not allowed to scare the young ones. We believe since it was a Friday night there must have been some junior high and high school parties cause we did not have very many kids to scare. This year since it was so nice outside I stayed out there with Mark to scare the kids and I have to say it was pretty fun. For trick or treating the kids both decided they wanted to be vampires (that's o.k. since that is an easy costume to put together), Mark was a skeleton pirate (I braided his beard and put beads in it), and I do not know what I was - I used Mark's Scream costume from last year and just painted my face. We had a great time. I am kinda glad it is over cause that means me and the boys leave for Florida here soon YEAH!!!!! I hope all had a great Halloween and Happy Holidays!!!!
