A Little Bit More Disney...

Greg has been giving me grief about not posting more on my blog. Actually, not only is he giving me grief about my blog, he is griping at me because the girls are not posting as much as he would like either. A couple of them, who will remain nameless are not posting at all! Facebook has replaced the blog in their hearts. But still, why gripe at me? Still, girls, you know who you are, your dad is quite displeased with your lack of blogging. Okay, with that said, I decided to go for one more Disney post. I have been compiling all of our pictures so I can put them on a disk for everyone and I have to admit I have laughed out loud at some of them. I realize that you probably had to be there to get the humor, but I decided to post some of my favorites so I can look back at them when I need a laugh...

The woman in the middle is funny looking on her own, but who is that creature in the background, Josh?

Does two pair of glasses mean four eyes, or just an attempt not to loose one pair?
When I first looked at this picture I just thought it was a cute pic of several of my grandchildren with a couple of extras thrown in until I really looked at Ella and Ben. They may have had their picture taken too many times, because they have taken posing to a new level.
This wasn't overly humorous until I realized how long Max wore this ridiculous sticker on his forehead (they were passing them out to everyone as they entered the park). Here he is in Minnie's house...
in Mickey's house...
in Mickey's pumpkin patch...
and standing in line for a ride. Sadly, I could have posted a few more of him sporting this prize winning head adornment.
As we were sitting and waiting for the Spectro Magic parade at Disney World, some of the cast members (aka employees) handed out hula hoops to keep the kids entertained. This pic does not do justice to Sam's abilities. He "hula hooped" so hard core that I believe shock waves rippled through the crowd. Don't know when I have laughed that hard! Too bad I have no video.

Would you call this overacting?? Sally is terrified, Ben is just mad at Bruce for trying to eat them!
My wonderful daughters showing how terrified they were standing outside the Haunted Mansion. We don't think Katie got the memo that she was supposed to be scared, we're not sure what she was trying to communicate at this moment...

I think the kids may do a better acting job than their mothers. The are terrified of the dinosaurs in the T Rex restaurant, Downtown Disney, by the way.
Ryder was just too cute on this day, he followed his dad around and copied everything thing he did, from leaning on objects to squatting, well you get the picture. Jason's little mini me.
One of my favorites! As Chad said, "Ben will be king!"
Does anyone doubt that Ella is rather dramatic?
I just have to say, I don't know why but this picture makes me smile. And it was not taken in Florida, but aboard the USS Alabama in Mobile. Greg loves to drive on vacations for two reasons: 1 (and most important) It saves money and 2 He can schedule little side trips to educate and broaden our horizons!

hahahahaha! These do bring back great memories from the trip! Here are a couple of my thoughts!

*Plese put that picture of Josh on facebook and tag him in it!
*That would be six eyes for dad and is anyone really ever surpised by what he does?
*Max had a stinkin tan line from that stupid sticker!
*Let's face it Katie looks like she needs to poop!
*Finally, that picture makes you laugh because it makes Bert look like he rode the short bus to school. Gotta be honest!

Looks like lots of fun was had by all. Your family is so lucky, Becky!

Oh my word I laughed so hard at this post and then I laughed at Mandy's comments. "Katie needs to poop!" Ha-Ha loved it!

Dawn said...

Poor Katie... HA! I had to look at that last picture for quite a bit to recognize Bert!

Great "outtakes" from your trip. I'm sure these are some of the best (and for sure the funniest) memories. Love it! Love your new blog header too!! Awesome picture!! Good job Katie!

LOVE the new blog header! Katie once again did an amazing job. She is much better thatn I am. I can not imagine trying to get 11 kids to look decent in the same picture. I have trouble just getting one good picture of 3!
