Things To Do...

I have a things-to-do list a mile long at the moment, and I have to really find ways to motivate myself to get it done. The house was so clean just last week. It's not filthy now, but the clutter is back in the living room and kitchen. I need to get groceries soon. The kids have a pile of laundry that needs to be folded and put away. And we still have Halloween decorations out! Those definitely need to be put away!!!

So I have to get some catching up done. That includes this blog! We took a quick trip down to Orlando and stayed at Disney's Pop Century Resort...they had a GREAT rate for Florida residents, so we took advantage of it (and also used the third day of our four-day Disney passes...only one more day to use before the end of the year). We went to Animal Kingdom, and I have to say that I really liked the park. It was much more laid back than your average Disney park. I'd definitely recommend it to others. We got to see the Lion King Show and the Finding Nemo Musical Show. Very well done, both of them. And the highlight, of course, was getting to see Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and Donald at the end of the day. That was one of my missions, since the kids didn't get to really meet many characters in July. Here's a fun shot of all four of us with "The Mouse" himself...Of course we returned back to reality when we got back home. And then reality was suspended again on Halloween...we dressed the kids up in their costumes (again...they got a lot of use this year!) and took them Trick-of-Treating around the block in our neighborhood. This is my favorite shot of that evening:
Don't they look like they're enjoying each other? I'll keep this photo to remind them of how much they really do like each other so that when they're older and arguing like wildcats I'll have proof. :) They wore their costumes four different times this the library, to Sea World for the Halloween Spooktacular on our first day in Orlando, to the nursing home with the Moms Club and then on Halloween night. Megan has convinced herself that she really is a princess. And if you hear Jeremy quoting Buzz Lightyear, you can't help but chuckle.
So Halloween is long over. I still have to get the Halloween cookie jar off the kitchen counter, but at least my blog is caught up again. :) With luck I'll be better about writing and you won't just hear from me at Thanksgiving and Christmas...there's life between holidays, as well!
Have a great rest-of-the weekend!!!
