T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Christmas Smiles All Around!

I don’t know about you – but in our house we have been celebrating Christmas for a couple weeks now – cookies, decorating, crafts, songs, movies – it’s been so much fun doing it all with my little family and seeing my 3 year old son actually start to understand and enjoy Christmas this year!

I think the best gift I could ever get this year is smiles from this little man – and I must have been on the “nice” list – because he seems to smile all the time – and I couldn’t be more glad to be spending Christmas with him

Here’s hoping your Holiday is full of laughter, fun, magic, family, and friends – MERRY CHRISTMAS and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Disney Gifts For A Disney Loving Boy (And His Mom!)

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas – and that you got to enjoy friends, family, food, and FUN! Our Christmas was great – my son had the best time, and of course he received TONS of great presents – many of which had a DISNEY theme to them:

gift3

A super comfy Mickey couch (perfect for enjoying viewings of what else? Disney movies, of course!)

gift2

A super amazing Mickey sleeping bag made by my mother in law – with no pattern (she really is talented!)

gift4

This was a big hit, as you can imagine!

gift1

And a super cool Mickey fire truck, too!

gift5

He wasn’t the only one who got in on the Disney gifts – I was lucky enough to receive this amazing mug I have been drooling over for a while now from my husband – it’s perfect for me as I LOVE mugs, and I LOVE to bake!

What about you – did you get everything on your Disney wish list this year? If not – don’t worry – there’s always next year!

TGIF, and Happy New Year!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Trimming The Tree And Decking The Halls

Christmas is a mere NINE days away – hard to believe, isn’t it? Hopefully you have all your presents picked out and wrapped and ready to go – and you can spend the next week relaxing, laughing, visiting with family, and eating cookies!

Last week I wrote about how the WDW Parks get all dressed up for the holidays, so this week I wanted to show you how I dress up MY house for the season:

Even the dog gets in on the fun (reluctantly at first – but once he realizes treats are involved, he is all about the sweater!). And of course there are plenty of Disney touches to our holiday décor – because what kind of Disney addict would I be without Disney ornaments on my tree, and Mickey stockings hung with care?

TGIF – and happy last weekend of shopping before Christmas!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Being Thankful

Thanksgiving is fast approaching (it’s less than a week away!), and I know once it arrives it will go quickly and then it will be Christmas season – with its flurry of shopping, parties, baking, wrapping, and well ACTUAL flurries too (for some of us anyway!) – needless to say, I am betting the rest of this year will FLY by – so I wanted to take a moment to really think about what I am thankful for this year. And I realized that it could best be summed up by this one picture:

My husband, son, and dog. These three are what I am most thankful for this year

Of course there’s much else to be thankful for too: family, employment, good health, friends, laughter, and of course DISNEY!

What about you – what are YOU thankful for this year?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Some Disney DIY Just In Time For Christmas!

A few years ago, I wrote about some DIY Disney Christmas Crafts that are fun, easy, and a great way to spend some time with family this Holiday season! Well – I loved those ideas so much, that it got me thinking about even MORE great Disney crafts you could try!

TGIFXmas EarsMaking snowflakes is a great craft for kids and adults – and these Mickey Ears ones are amazing! Check out the template here

TGIFXmas Olaf

For all you Frozen fans out there – check out this Video Tutorial on how to create your own Olaf Marshmallow Treats

TGIF Xmas cookies

I love hosting cookie parties at holiday time – it’s a great way to spend time with family and friends while enjoying deliciously sweet treats! The only thing that could make a cookie party even better? Disney-fying it, of course! Check out ways to incorporate Disney into your Holiday gatherings and traditions here

TGIF Xmas Garland

I love this idea – easy to do, and would make a great addition to doorways and windows! Check out instructions on how to make your own Disney Christmas Garland here

Hopefully these ideas have inspired you to get in the “Christmas Spirit” – since Christmas is only two weeks away – eek! I better go finish up my wrapping (with Mickey Mouse wrapping paper, of course…)

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Christmas Cheer At Home!

The countdown to Christmas is on – less than three weeks remain until Santa comes for a visit! Last Christmas I was lucky enough to be vacationing at Walt Disney World – and this year, while I won’t be away on vacation, I will be getting to celebrate my son’s first Christmas! He is only 2 months old so he won’t really know what’s going on, but we are still super excited- he already “helped” us decorate the tree and the house, and of COURSE the decor includes some awesome Disney touches! Check them out:

This one is new this year – to celebrate ournewest family member’s first Christmas!

This was a gift from a friend – I just love the design and it looks great on the tree!

20141204_113154

Picked this one up last year at WDW – loved the drawing and detail

20141204_113202

This was a honeymoon purchase – had to commemorate our first trip as a married couple somehow!

20141204_113214

Picked this one up on our 2011 Disney trip – we went a few weeks before Christmas and had such a great time!

Minnie walking her little pup was a gift from a close friend – who knows how much I love my dog Walter (who was of course named after Mr Disney!)

This is actually a framed greeting card – when we were at the Art of Disney Store in Downtown Disney last December, the artist was actually there displaying a lot of his Disney sketches, and we fell in love with this one so we bought some cards but I couldn’t resist putting one on display!

This was actually a gift we received at our baby shower for our son – he’s a bit young to get to use it now, but we will certainly be setting it up around the Christmas tree for that extra little Disney magic!

What about you – do you like to decorate Disney for the holidays? Personally I love it – it reminds me of my favorite place while celebrating my favorite holiday!

TGIF!
