Disney World

Home again, home again, jiggity-jig

Monday, December 7th, 2009

We got home very early yesterday morning from our 11 days in Disney World. It was supposed to be a Christmas trip and while they definitely had Christmas decorations around the parks and resorts, I can’t say we felt in the Christmas spirit. Which now means I’m a week behind on Christmas. But, while it […]

Daisy George

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

“I need a tissue, and by the way, I sneezed and I didn’t quite hear anyone say ‘bless you’ to me.”
She’s doing well today and in fabulous spirits as in pretty much her norm when sick. Thankfully, she slept no worse than she does any other night of the week so I really think that […]

Disney Dreamin’

Monday, January 26th, 2009

The kids are on the couch watching “Surf’s Up” and enjoying ring pops. My computer is busy uploading over 700 photos so I pulled out the laptop for a bit.
It’s been a little over a year since we returned home from our second trip to Disney World. We were there 9 days, not that […]

Disney World ‘08- Day 6

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Today was the day we were all set to match shirts. I know! Me matching family clothes! What is this world coming to? In any case, our personalized, embroidered shirts attracted loads of attention so it was worth it. Plus the girls both look so cute in their crocheted beanies.
Anyway, we started the morning off […]

Disney World ‘08- Day 5

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

Monday was going to be a rather cold day. As in highs in the low 50s, which I know isn’t cold for some places, but it’s cold for Florida and it’s cold for us Since the girls were going to be covered in jackets, I figured I might as well skip the customs […]

Disney World ‘08- Day 4

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Alternate title: “Even the animals had umbrellas”
Sunday was the day for Animal Kingdom. I was very excited to go back to this park just to re-experience it’s beauty. We arrived before park opening to attend Donald’s Character Breakfast Buffet at Tusker House. On the way we were able to catch a few pictures without guests […]

Disney World ‘08- Day 3

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Otherwise known as “How the Anc Fam shopped and ate their way around World Showcase.”
World Showcase in Epcot was planned for Saturday morning. This was a good plan because they don’t open until 11:00am thus allowing us to sleep in a little bit. We took our time in the morning since we were all still […]

Disney World ‘08 Days 1 and 2

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

We decided to maximize our time in Disney World and take a red-eye flight Thursday night. Our other thought was we would sleep enough on the plane to be functional, but we knew it wouldn’t be enough and therefore going to bed that night would be easier for our PST bodies. It kind of worked, […]

Home Again!

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

We’re home! Miss me? We left on the red-eye Thursday, January 10 arriving in Orlando at 6:30am their time. By 9:00am we were inside the Magic Kingdom! We came home yesterday getting in around 5:30pm our time. We had a fabulous time. I dare say it was better than our first trip. I really want […]

day to day

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

There’s just really nothing going on around here to post on. The girls are not attending any classes right now so we can avoid the usual January sickness. That leaves them only each other and they are doing really well. It’s fun listening to them play. One game shows the technology age. It’s called TV […]

now my sewing machine can rest

Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

I am officially done sewing every piece of clothing for our Disney trip. All told I sewed seven outfits for Tabitha and six for Daisy (I bought her an outfit on ebay before I started sewing). I have bows and red crocs for both of them and I am going work my camera like never […]

Day 2

Monday, December 11th, 2006

It’s been a while, but my Disney World bug is back so I wrote up a report for our second day in Disney World. Photos may be clicked to enlarge.
Sunday, September 17, 2006- Day 2- Disney’s MGM Studios
Up at what felt like the crack of dawn to us but we finally made it out to […]

Day 1

all photos can be clicked to view a bit larger
“I wonder what we forgot.” I said as we headed in the dark towards the freeway on Day 1 of our long awaited vacation. The answer: the kids’ carryon bag. Thank goodness Chris knew that answer right away and we were able to have my fil […]

Home again

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Well, we’ve returned from our 10 day trip to Walt Disney World. I’ll go back and unlock the passworded posts, but for those of you who couldn’t access them, you didn’t miss much. I didn’t write nearly as much as I thought I would. I need to spend some time typing up summeries of our […]

The great wide open sky

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

The flights went as well as could be expected. Just as once occured 6 years ago, a flight attendant spoke in an inappropriate manner to a baby thinking that would make the child sit where they had no intention of sitting and stop screaming. Also, as happened 6 years ago, a screaming child was calmed […]

We’re not in SoCal anymore

Monday, September 18th, 2006

My initial goal was to type everyday even if I didn’t connect to the internet, but this is the first time I’ve actually gotten the chance. I’ve been walking around with a running commentary in my head but the minute I sit down at the computer it’s gone in a flash.
Things we forgot:

The carryon […]

Leave it to my baby to make me cry the day before we leave. Right now I have the Disney World planning DVD playing in the living room for the girls while I work on packing. Daisy has now asked me to go in her stroller because she wants me to take her there right […]

mental block

Thursday, September 14th, 2006

I’m having a bit of a mental block regarding our vacation. I can picture us in Disney World, I can picture us on the plane, I can even picture Daisy asleep on my lap, I can picture landing, finding our bus and checking in. What I cannot picture is me finishing packing and walking down […]


Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Turns out we need a copy of Daisy’s birth certificate to prove she’s under 2 since we did not purchase her a ticket. About that. Everything we’ve ever read says to get your baby a seat and take their carseat on board as they are familiar with it. So when we went to Maine 6 […]

The details

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

So, after almost 3 years, 2 postponements and a cancellation, we are finally going to Disney World. We leave in percisely 25 days and will be there for 10 days/9 nights. The entire trip is paid off, including food, and we’re just responsible for our souvenirs and a couple extras I have planned for the […]
