Vacation Plans Finally

One of my favorite pictures. It all began with a mouse.
This was taken in Epcot at Innovations, you can send these as a free email from there.
O'hana restaurant at the Polynesian. One of our favorite places to eat.

After weeks of discussion, searching and thinking. We have finally decided where we will be going on vacation. I don't know why we wasted all that time because we are going back to our
favorite place. Disney World. Don was actually the one that wanted to go back this year. We absolutely love it there. All of us do, even Don loves it. This will make Parker's 6th visit, and Meredith's 5th. I have been about 15 times. Don has been about 10 times. This would border on obsession I think. I will have to say vacations don't get much better than Disney. Really Disney trips have to begin with research months in advance and we figure by the time our grandkids come we should be on the payroll as consultants. We have this down to a science now.

Homework Time

Meredith has her own homework book to work in to get ready for Kindergarten. That is what happens when your mom teaches school. You have to go to Pre-School at night.
Parker doing a little homework. He don't have it to often, thanks to Mrs. Horne. But he likes to do it when he does.
She is really concentrating hard. She even gets to put her own sticker on after I check her paper.

Our Wish Came True-----SNOW!!!

Don called and woke us up this morning to tell us if we were going to play in the snow we better get up because it was suppose to change over to rain. You don't have to tell us twice when it comes to playing in the snow. I woke them both up and we were in the snow within 15 min. We figured breakfast could wait. A snow day from school and enough snow to actually build a snowman, it doesn't get much better than that!
Parker, Meredith and Issac(our neighbor) sledding.

What a ride.
Frosty the Snowman

We loved playing in the snow.

Meredith has our Snowman kit. I bought this several years ago and we haven't had enough snow to use it. So today we got it out to try.

Here he is our snowman "Frosty"

What has been happening.

Don and Brayden
Brayden's first Christmas
Diana and Parker love playing games.
Parker, Meredith and Brayden Barr.
We had the Barr's and Smith's over and we got a chance to spend time with them. The girls loved playing together and Travis loved playing Parker's guitar on the Playstation. He was actually the only person that has played the 80's version that knew all the lyrics with the songs. He was great. We spend a lot of time wishing for snow. That happens when your mom is a teacher, it is a requirement to become a teacher. Ha Ha. I have also made an appointment for Meredith to get her shots for school. Needless to say she is not real excited about the blood from her finger thing. I have told her that we will go to Build a Bear if she does good at the Dr. on February 1st. I will post the pictures tonight.
