Several months ago I posted about a tshirt idea that I wanted to do for our upcoming trip. Well, I finally did it! I took the idea from Erin at Living a Dram when she posted about her Pirate Mickey tshirt for her son. Since we’ll be attending the MVMCP, we’ll ALL wear these to the party! I thought my husband would baulk at the idea, but he went along! I did do his and JAG’s shirt with a smaller Mickey head than I did on mine and C-mans. Mine is green, C-man’s is white and the older boys are gray.

I can’t wait to use these apps on our next trip!! Do you have any good WDW apps for your iphone you can share with me!?!
I met Mr. and Mrs. Incredible during my trip to WDW in November of 2006 with my mother. This was the trip where we were supposed to be at a youth conference, but the conference wasn’t very good so we skipped out and played in the parks! We were in the then, MGM Studios at the Magic of Disney Animation. They were both very fun, but I’m still not a fan of the stamped autographs. I can understand some characters, like Beast, who have hands too large to hold a pen, but these guys are just wearing gloves… Why can’t they hold a pen and actually write “Mr. Incredible?”
“The first Mickey Mouse cartoon released, and the first cartoon with synchronized sound. As a mischievous deckhand on a riverboat, Mickey, to Minnie’s delight, plays “Turkey in the Straw” utilizing an animal menagerie as his instruments. However, the tyrannical Captain Pete is not amused, and Mickey ends up peeling potatoes in the galley.
The gingerbread house at Disney’s Grand Floridian is now open to the public! I can’t wait to see it next month! They use 1,050 pounds of honey to build this 16 foot tall creation! Here is a great time lapse video of the building process.
Many parents often ask the question, “Should I take my child out of school to go to Walt Disney World?” My answer is yes. They will get more out of a trip to WDW than they would sitting in the classroom and it’s cheaper to go when school is in session. We always have the teacher send any classwork JAG will miss and we pack plenty of books to read on the way down. When I was teaching first grade, I gave a vacation journal to all my students to complete while they were away. I thought it was better than the classwork and it gave the parents a great souvenir keepsake to have! I touched on this topic of missing school to go to WDW a while back and now I’ll show you the journal I had Jackson do while we were visiting. (Sorry this post is so long. I don’t know how to post photos without them being one per line yet.) I have this journal saved in a word document if you would like me to send it to you. You can customize it to fit your child and vacation!
