Boy…this one popped up way sooner than we expected! I remember in the old days, it was a joke for all the “unmarried” ladies that we would wonder who we would ask to marry us on Leap Day! I don’t even know if the youngsters have even heard about that one! But that’s okay…it’s still just a once every 4 years occurrence, and this year, Disneyland decided to do it up big, like Disney’s marketing team always finds a way to do – Disneyland was open from 6am on February 29th until 6am on March 1st…and NO! We did not do that! We did, however, want to be a part of the celebration, so Megan took a half day off of work and we headed to Anaheim early afternoon, anticipating a big crowd and not planning on staying too late. When we arrived, we were directed to the top level of the parking structure. I had never done that before and Megan only once before. The crowd was steady, but not too bad. We even got right onto the tram. It wasn’t until we approached the entrance that we discovered a minor problem: they were filming an episode of “Modern Family” on what was sure to be one of the busiest days of the year! Blah! There was a single-file line to ONE entrance gate that we had to stand
I love Disneyland at Christmas time!
If you haven't ever been, Disneyland at Halloween time is an absolutely wonderful time to go!
Thursday will find me once again at the happiest place on Earth...especially at Halloween!
Tinkerbell had the day off at Disneyland and Grumpy took her place!
Disneyland with big kids...wonderful!
Do you think you can find the location of the secret room? See if you know where it is!
Oh there's no sale like the annual sale at The World of Disney (at Disneyland!)
I've never actually gone to confession, not being Catholic and not having done anything serious enough to go to my Bishop about…in recent years, at least…but I've seen it enough on television to know that this is what I feel like I am doing right now. I feel the need to do penance! It has been surprisingly busy since that last post. I've had visitors and I've been trying to get certain things done before I blog again, but I can only see this dragging on for many more days unless I get back into the habit again. I've had some specific projects to do and now they are completed, I can get on with the fun stuff. A few weeks ago…not sure exactly how long – I loose track of time these days and I'm sure that my daughter will read this and tell me exactly how long ago it was. Anyway, a while ago, Megan sent me a message regarding this cool new paper line from Graphic 45…Hallowe'en in Wonderland, which I promptly looked up on their website and oh my goodness! It is so to die for cute! I promptly passed the message onto Deb, who ordered it for an upcoming kit. I, of course, couldn't wait until her order came in, so I called Cool Scrapbook Stuff to see if Gena had ordered it – of course she
On one of our recent trips to Disneyland, a couple of times ago, Megan found a memo pad that looked like the old tickets that you used to get on the individual rides…I can't decide which I like better since the passes have gotten so expensive. I remember when you could get in at a minimal charge and not go on the rides if you didn't want to. But for now, an annual pass is still the way for me to go…for now! Anyway, I thought it would be a perfect embellishment for a layout about myself, which I don't do very often. I have really enjoyed going to Disneyland over the years - as a child, as a teenager, on my honeymoon, with my children and I look forward to someday going with my grandchildren…when I get some! I remember being absolutely shocked, but excited the first time I didn't need a stroller at Disneyland. No having to park it, find it when you got off the ride and hoping that no one stole it while you were gone. (That happened once at Sea World.) Things change. Before long, the kids won't even need me to drive them there! The kids are funny. They keep offering to get a wheelchair and push me around Disneyland…someday I might take them up on it! After all the years I pushed them around, I think it only fair…except
