Merry ChristMas

The Boy with his "you can play with it Nativity set" he's had since he was a baby. It's funny how they always go for the Baby Jesus.

His ornament this year. Mickey in Space.

And Two-A's last prank of the season. taking the Star from the top of the tree and sitting there with it.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Whilst skiping through Etsy

I found this wall decoration, wall cling, whatever it's called.
It now graces The Boys bedroom wall.
We tell him this all the time and when I seen it on Etsy, I HAD to get it for his room.
Etsy is my second favorite hobby now, it seems I "fell" into Pinterest on Friday and didn't climb back out until sometime Monday. It is a dangerous, dangerous place.

A visit with the Big Man

We have come so far since those early years. You guys goes know how it goes. They throw a scraming hissy fit. Kinda like Mommy just sat you in the lap of a hungry canabal...and you're lunch. Daddy says he's the perfect age for Christmas magic this year.

Disney Dream Food

I guess I didn't take as many food pictures as I thought. This is only the first night.
If you click on the menu, you'll get a good idea of Animator's Palate offerings.

This is The Boys mac & cheese. He wouldn't touch it, because "somebody messed it up" by putting it in a "thing".

My endive & poached pear salad. Very good.

A Boy's room service. He could not be bothered to go up to the amazing breakfast buffet. (So we left him in the room to sleep while we went.) Don't worry, I hung out the "do not disturb" sign.

My first dessert, a little tiny bit of 3 different ones.

My Main dessert. a lemon pudding...with coffee.

The food on the boat is really good and plentiful. My son-in-law (bless his heart) had 3 entrees some nights. My daughter had several appetizers at once. I of course would never be such a pig. I stuck to tiny, baby, almost nonexistent desserts, with a "main" dessert. Now I wish I had brought the camera to dinner after the first night. These pictures really doesn't do the food justice. And the Buffets! One buffet was just sushi, where my daughter might as well have pulled up a chair. Oh, were they ever good.

Two more years, two more years. I'll just chant that...for two more years. Unless I win the lottery, then I'm going right then and taking all of you with me.

Disney's private island

My 2 older MeMe babies, Caitie & Blake

The Boy resting for awhile

One of the thing Disney has is private cabanas you can rent for the day.

Which are hard to come by(there's only 17 on the family beach) and is a little pricey.

But so worth it. You don't have to fight for a chair, hammock, space in the water, ect.

But it comes stocked with drinks in a fridge, snacks & a private beach too. Oh, and a "butler".

Worth the $ in my opinion, if you can snag one. Ours was #17, the very last one on the beach, so we were even more secluded.

My Rylie Boy, who just turned 2. The youngest, of my older daughter.

The kids playing on a deserted beach. Unheard of on the island. We loved it.

Pretty flowers, my husband wouldn't let me pick :(

Chip & Dale. I can never remember who is who. But see how the Boy's smile looks alot like the

rodent on the right.

One messy hot dog!

Oh how I love that boat

A sea urchin my son in law brought up from snorkeling to show us.

He was pretty cool looking. (then we was put back where he came from)

Up next a few *FoodPorn shots. I do love the food on the boat. I always try to get my money's worth in that department.

My oldest daughter &

Look closely at the words on the pillow. He crashed hard after a day on Disney Castaway Cay!

Beautiful chandelier in Royal Palace dining room. Can you see Cinderella's glass slippers?

My daughter in the Hypnosis show.

Every night the room steward left a "towel" animal. We could never figure out what this thing was.

Pirate night midnight buffet

chandelier in adults only Palo restaurant. It's supposed to be spaghetti & meatballs :)

Waiting on his own princess. I told him wait 30 years.

Nothing but water

THE prettiest girl and the meanest girl. She could win either category.

One tired boy.

Up Next our beach day on Castaway Cay. It is beautiful!

Lego Land

this guy actually SNORES all day long!

We did Lego Land after the cruise.

We were not too empressed with the cost per person, the cost of food, that was limited to pizza, hotdogs and 3 hour lines to get it. The many Lego constructions were amazing to look at. the Boy had a good time and I guess that's all that matters. But they wont be seeing us again anytime too soon.

Next up Disney Dream photos!
