Due to a change in our finances (my hours got cut back to 3 hours a week), we have had to cancel our Disney trip for the end of this month :( We were planning on coming for my sons' birthdays (July 26th and Aug. 4th). Man, this sucks!! It has already been 2 years since our last visit!
My minis made these wooden toys last weekend at the Lowe's build and grow kids workshop. They are adorable! This weekend, the 22nd and 23rd, they have another free kids project. It is going to be a Monsters University treasure box! We can't wait!
We are planning a trip this fall with friends whom have never been! We are trying to decide between Halloween or after Thanksgiving. Thoughts anyone? Pros and Cons of either time would be very helpful. We have always gone in either late February or July.
Good morning everyone! I am looking for pen pals for my minis :) I have an 8 year old boy, 6 year old girl and 3 year old boy. I would love for them to learn to send handwritten letters to friends. Anyone interested please DM me. Thanks!
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

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!
