The Most Magical Place on Earth

So last week was our big trip to Disney. Some called us crazy, but we DROVE. And i can honestly say that I could not be happier with that decision. Little Bit is a ROCK STAR in the car. We made it to Orlando in about 13 hours with only 3 stops. That included a late lunch about 1n hour away at the ole Bob Evans.

Steven was only able to spend one whole day at the Magic Kingdom with us. But we made it a marathon day. Cramming in a ton of characters and rides.

I'll keep this post short and just post some pics. I'll blog more about the trip when I have time. Right now I have presents to wrap!

First guy we ran into, Goofy!

Waiting for Mickey is hard to do!

The VIPs.

The castle looked beautiful decorated for Christmas!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

When we bought this house last February I think I started planning a Christmas party right away. And when Janice mentioned wanting to have an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party, I KNEW we had to have one. We tracked down a dickie and Steven went as Cousin Eddie. Love my husband! Next year we are going bigger and better. I'm thinking entertainment, perhaps karaoke or hand bells. Ok, onto the pictures.

Jered wore an "ugly" sweater, just not an Ugly Christmas Sweater. Props for channeling Bill Cosby.

The award presentation. The Jelly of the Month Club. The gift that keeps on giving the whole year!

The 3 finalists. Mark for "keeping it real". Joel for wearing his mama's sweater. Brian for wearing his musical, light up ensemble!

The law school gang. The key is go gaze off to the side.

The A&F gang got really into it!
