Not happening this year

These are some of the shots from last year’s Thanksgiving weekend visit to Disney Springs. It was our 3rd annual lunch at the Springs with my sisters and we had a perfect day last year. This year we all did what we were suppose to do and stayed at home. They didn’t get to come visit this year so next year we’ll have to make up for lost time.

Above are some of the Christmas trees we saw around town last year including the manatee statue waving in front of the tree.

I hope everyone is having a good Christmas in spite of the things that are going on. Are you staying at home instead of visiting relatives? If it’s warm Brett and I might spend the day at the beach (if it’s not closed) just to get outside. Although, even if it’s cold we might still go. Nothing like a long walk on the beach all bundled up when it’s cold. Below are some old pictures I found of my family being bundled on the beach. The first is from the early 70’s of my mom and two sisters walking on Clearwater beach. The 2nd was more recent (early 90’s) of my sister and I goofing around on the the beach. Both were on Christmas day.

Merry Christmas from Disney Springs

Thanksgiving weekend my sisters and I headed over to Disney Springs to have an early lunch and walk around. Disney Springs is a shopping and dining area with activities and events. It’s basically a Disney park without rides and you don’t have to pay to get in. We got there early in the morning and left early in the afternoon. By the time we left it was so crowded you could barely walk. It was a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit.

I realized later that you could see my reflection in the window and my sister standing next to me.

We stopped at the bakery on the way out to get deserts to take home.

Merry Christmas to everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog during the year!

Where I am today

If this doesn’t get me in the spirit nothing will. I am spending today at Epcot with Brett. We are having a staycation day since Disney is only an hour away from our house.  The above were all taken last year in December when I took my sister here for the day during her visit. I was traveling light so all of the above were taken with my Iphone. I’m sure the decorations look the same this year. I’ll let you know if it has changed any.  Instead of turkey and stuffing for our meal today, we are going to eat Italian food (or maybe French, or maybe German, or maybe even Japanese)! Or we could have a little of every county. It’s fun to snack around the countries at Epcot. I plan on coming home with a tummy ache from all the stuff I eat today. But isn’t that what you’re suppose to do on Thanksgiving?  Hope you have a nice one as well.
