47 More Days!

I haven't been in the mood to write much lately.  This has been a very tough year for our family.

Our family had decided to take a break and do Disneyland every 2 years.  So we were not planning 
a trip this year.  In April we lost a very dear friend, suddenly.  It was heartbreaking and reminded me that we need to live each day to the fullest.

I got on the phone and immediately called the DVC and made our reservations for December. I called my sister in law who lives in Georgia to see if she and her family would come out again this year.  She said "yes" and that made my day.  We are surprising her 8 year old, she has no idea.  

This year will be special too because we are bringing my parents, who are in their 80's.  My dad is in a scooter and can't walk so he hasn't been to the parks in about 7 years.  I am excited for them to be with our whole family and enjoy the Christmas spirit at the "Happiest Place on Earth."  My dad is excited to go on that ride that takes him over the Golden Gate Bridge (Soarin) and to have a glass of wine in that bar in the Grand Californian.   Life will be good and it will be a special time with all of us together.

Made some lunch reservations at the new Carthay Circle Restaurant.....looking forward to that.
 Can't wait to get my  80 + mom back on Tower of Terror.  She was so proud of herself for riding it last time.

So 47 day to go and ready for some fabulous memories and happy times.  God knows we need them.

Have a Magical Day!
