Dreaming of Disney

In the next month sometime I'll be back at my HAPPY PLACE :-) I'm dreaming of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (MVMCP), Disney's spectacular Christmas decor, and a Disney Cruise.

Disney in the fall/winter is quite different than the heat of the summer!

Spring flower and garden show!

A summer cruise! Castaway Cay!

Summer in Epcot!

NYE in MK!

I can't wait to do a winter cruise and I can't wait for MVMCP!!! I'm also anxious
to see all the beautiful decorations at the resorts. Do you dream of Disney when you are at home? I hope I'm not alone! I help friends plan trips and I plan our family trips. Sadly, my oldest won't be able to come on this next trip. He has to stay behind because of college. So he will be house sitting and keeping the cats company!

I'll have lots to share with you after our trip *o* And btw, I haven't finished the village yet!

See ya Real Soon, Disney!!

Happy Birthday Mickey Mouse!

Today is Mickey's Birthday. He started in the movie, "Steamboat Willie". Now, did you know that Walt was going to name him Mortimor Mouse, but wife Lillian was the one who helped Walt to come up with Mickey?

So Happy Birthday Mickey, I hope your day is Magical!!!!!!! *o* *o* *o*

I'm trying to decorate for the Holidays and that means I'm putting up my Christmas Village! It is going to be a long week! Don't look for me, I'm lost in boxes, tubs, styrofoam, and cords! If you don't hear from in a couple weeks send help!!

This photo was taken on my Mac so it is reversed. Gizmo, Amelia's cat, is so much help! She is getting in the way as much as she can. I'll post pics when I'm finished. I don't have room to put ALL of it up, but I'm doing my best! Later....

Did you think I forgot pictures of Kevin and I in our Halloween costumes? I didn't, just been a little busy!

Get ready to get your Pirate on!

 I like these 2 because I think my webs give a neat effect!  That glue gun that had a hook up for the air compressor worked great making webs.

 And here is Amelia in her costume!  Feeling better than she did the night of the party.

Can't wait to try out our pirate costumes on the DCL for pirate night. That will be sometime in the near future.

Have a great week!

Pretty Pretty PRETTY Girls!

Amelia is going to be 15 in just 2 months. She has never bugged us about makeup, but I know the day is coming. Kevin bought her a nice set and she hasn't worn it. Guess she takes after me, I hate it! But, when the day comes as we know it is, and we will start slowly, we want her to know what she is doing. We were going to take her to the makeup counter at the department store, never have time! So, when Dana, my hair dresser, suggested a makeup party for her and her friends, that seemed like a great idea!

I made a cute invitation, it looked like a compact, round, flip open, metallic paper for a 'mirror', and frosted-glittery paper for the 'blush'. Then vellum with all the party info which covered the blush! I just couldn't find makeup brush stickers! I was in a hurry and didn't have time to go to 10 stores!

Here, hope you get the idea:

I photo reverses all images!

Dana is owner of Stratton Salon in Lubbock. 

 In the beginning!


Little Taelor is only 10 and she was the most EAGER of the girls!!

 Taelor's Mom, Kelly, helps her out.

 Auria tries to figure this stuff out!

 Not so sure about mascara...

 she looks way older than 10!

 Autume is beautiful, 13 going on ??

 I think Breenkly is going to kill me!  But look how PRETTY!

 Auria is stunning.

 Oh my!  DAD, look out we could have a problem....

And Chelsea, finally gave in.  No, she said, I don't wear/like makeup!  After it was all said and done, I think I'll try lip gloss, OK, how about blush!  Well, you might as well try it all.  She is beautiful!

See, a little goes a long way. They don't look over done and don't look like they are 30 yrs old. They look like PRETTY young teens/tweens!

We are going to let Amelia start with eye make up for school when she wants it. Now that she somewhat knows how to apply it.

We will see how it goes! Just have to get her brows waxed again! Never enough time!

Pixie Dust to you all!
