I found a srcitizenspaceranger in Vegas! He was passing through Vegas and stopped for a quick visit and to give Billy a Stitch pin. Thank you! Billy talked about the Disneyland photos all the way home.
I received this care package in the mail yesterday. Thank you MouseketeerforShort! I really appreciate the gifts! This brought a big smile to my face! I can not wait to return to DL! I really appreciate all MWers for keeping the magic in my life right now! It's been a very rough few months for me and being able to read through post and see live pictures helps!
This is not my usual post but I'm asking for pixie dust and prayers. Mr Vegasbrat is having surgery at 7 this evening. It's a minor hernia operation but he's had some heart issues (dropping enough he stayed in icu 3 days before baby was born). So please keep us in your thoughts.
Look who I found in Vegas today! Sr citizen space ranger-- he was passing through and had the 10th anniversary Lilo and Stitch pin for lil Brat. He also got to meet lil Rose and visit for a few before continuing his journey. Thank you for the map and newspaper.
Thank you for all the pictures! I'm missing DL big time. But I do have good news we are having a baby! This is helping me through the contractions! Lil brat is excited baby sister will be here soon! It just seemed like yesterday I was announcing my pregnancy.
Lil Brat and I went to check out the new outlet store here in Vegas. They gave us Mickey ears. I usually find better deals at the North Premium Outlet store. This one was a little expensive. This will be the last baby bump photo it's time for this lil girl to get out! Lol
My family and friends know how much I love Disney! I wanted to share my baby shower cakes. The pink and white Minnie cake was from the family shower. My coworkers got me the Minnie Mouse cake. They were both wonderful!
I wanted to share some photos from last night. We went to Disney On Ice and now I'm really missing Disneyland. I also threw in a photo of lil Brat hugging his sister before the show. Had to get momma some ice cream!
Hello everyone! Sorry for the random drop in but work has kept me BUSY! Got great news today! For being a diabetic mom to be, my doctor is proud of how I've kept my numbers under control. We had an ultrasound of our lil princess today and they found no birth defects with her heart (major concern). We most likely will be seeing her around 36 weeks. They won't let me go full term. Lil vegasbrat is g More...
I've been missing Disneyland and driving my husband nuts! So he took me shopping and I found some cute outfits for our lil princess. We are so excited! My lil guy helped me pick them out. The bottom left corner will be her coming home outfit.
Look what I got in the mail today. I also got the matching port a crib. Makes me feel a lot better after my sad news that I won't be returning to Disneyland this year! Now to wait two more weeks to find out boy or girl.
This is MrMOMzers wonderful picture with a little magic added! We've been beta testing the MouseWait Advanced Composer for awhile now. This allows approved MWers to create their own "column" in the Lounge with expanded posts, pics, and videos inside the post. We are ready to open this feature up to more people who are intersted in having their own MouseWait Column in the Lounge. Your posts could be featured on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ and seen by our 100,000+ strong social media audience!
This feature is best used for instructional posts, history posts (like Duchess_SMK's column), and for reporting news (i.e. BaseballMickey_CM's posts). You could also do this to create a post describing your recent visit to the Parks with multiple pictures, videos, and more--think of it like an article that would appear in a magazine. The Advanced Composer only works on the web version. GO HERE TO APPLY and watch your email for more info (make sure you're email client is not blocking our emails or sending them to Spam--for some reason icloud.com, me.com, and mac.com will not allow our messages to come through.)
Thank you to everyone who strives to add quality content to the Lounge! Thanks again to MrMOMzers for the amazing picture!
Mr. Disney was one of five children, four boys and a girl. He was the fourth born Disney son. He was named after his parents pastor and friend Walter Parr, a preacher at St. Paul Congregational Church. The pastor, in turn, will later name his son Elias, after Walt's father.
Most of Walt's childhood was spent on a farm in Marceline, Missouri, where he began drawing, painting and selling pictures to neighbors and family friends. In 1911, the family moved to Kansas City, where his love for trains really developed. His Uncle, Mike Martin, was a train Engineer who worked on the route between Fort Madison, Iowa, and Marceline. Walt would later work a summer job with the railroad, selling newspapers and snacks to the travelers. To read more about Walts love for trains

To watch a short biography of Walts life:
Walt and Lillian Disney with unnamed friend, London, 1935.
Walt Disney in my opinion, is a wonderful example of the American dream! He represents: imagination, optimism, creation, and self-made success in the American tradition. He brought us closer to the future, while telling us of the past, it is certain, Walt Disney was a great man! He and his brother Roy co-founded Walt Disney Productions, which became one of the best-known motion-picture production companies in the world! Disney was an innovative animator and created the cartoon characters we all love to watch today. :) He won 22 Academy Awards during his lifetime, and was the founder of the magical playgrounds that ties us all together, Disneyland and Disney World. Had he been alive today he would be 112 years old! Happy birthday Walt! Thank you so much for believing in your dreams! You are a true inspiration.
In honor of today, it would be fun if we all mentioned our favorite quote from Mr. Disney. I'll go first, I have many, but this one always sticks out:
"I've always been interested in the past and history and I think it's vital."
Thanks for reading and watching! Hope you all have a terrific Thursday!
