Who's that Girl?


Vacations and Blogging Don’t Mix

Hello!  Well, I’m back from a 5 day vacation to magical Disney World.  I’m happy to report that I was actually able to live without my computer for that long since some of my family members probably think I’m tied to it.  It was nice to take time away and focus on my kiddos and ensure that they had the most magical experience ever.  If you’re expecting a business-related post, those will be back tomorrow.  For now, I thought I’d share a couple stories from the trip for those of you who are interested.

Our holiday was a complete surprise for my 7 year old twins.  They woke up on Christmas eve morning at 4:00 am to be told that Santa left them a note.  It said they needed to go to the airport.  The drive to the airport was one filled with excitement as they tried to guess where Santa was sending them.  Once at the airport, their Grandpa gave them Mickey and Minnie stuffed animals as their clue.  They were ecstatic!  We spent Christmas eve at the Hollywood Studios park and had a wonderful time watching Fantasmic.  We ended our night at the Brown Derby and walked through the Osbourne Family Christmas light display.  It was an amazing amount of light.

Christmas day started with Santa leaving presents under our tiny tree in the hotel room.  My kiddos were so happy that Santa could find them.  Luckily we decided to spend the day at Epcot because the Magic Kingdom ended up closing once it reached 70,000 guests that day!  After that, there was swimming, eating meals with characters, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, lots of roller coasters, more food and sweets than we needed, and even several shows.  All in all it was a good break.

Hope you all enjoyed your holidays, whether that means celebrating Christmas, Chanukkah, or other holidays!
