#throwbackthursday: speaking of easter...

Happy #tbt!  I was going through some old files to make space for all our new pictures when I came across this video of Evangeline and her singing duckie. I can't believe she was that little, and so excited about that singing toy!

So many giggles!

FYI, that's the Hallmark 'Totally Ticklish Duck' and apparently they still sell it!  I may need to get a new one. (As you can imagine from this video, our got squeezed a lot and eventually stopped flapping and singing!)

#throwbackthursday: Time Lapsed Video of Disney Construction

The Castle hub area was wrapping up construction while we were at Disney World last month, and while it wasn't as bad as it could have been, it was still pretty noticeable. Unfortunately, now that I'm starting to go through our trip pictures I'm seeing just how noticeable the humungous crane is... in every picture! 

Oh well, I guess that's just the price we pay for new improve Disney goodness, right? (See also: PHOTOSHOP TO THE RESCUE!) :-)

Speaking of construction, the Disney Parks blog released this AMAZING time-lapsed video of Disneyland's construction! I hope to be able to go there someday! 

 

#throwbackthursday: Pictures with Santa (2011)

Who's ready for Christmas?  :-)

This is the "fancy Santa" at our uptown mall. You have to arrive by 8am just to get an appointment later in the day for late afternoon. It's been a few years since we got the girls' pictures with him, but I'm hoping we can pull it off this year!

Well, at least she didn't cry, right?

Happy #tbt everyone!

#throwbackthursday: Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! 

Since it's also #tbt, I decided to dig out these photos from 2011 when I had the awesome opportunity to be an Elf in the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade for my employer's float (no one can ever accuse me of not being a good sport!)  :-)  

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Stay warm and enjoy yourselves! 

One of my good friends and former coworkers stopped by to ask me a question, totally unaware that it was Parade costume fitting & rehearsal day.... this is probably one of my favorite photos ever. :-)
