Disney on the brain

So, even though we were at Disneyworld only 2 months ago ... I am jonesin' to go back! Disney is running some AMAZING deals right now, and then yesterday my sister called me because she found ROUND TRIP AIRFARE from SLC to MCO (Orlando intl aiport) for $99.00 round trip!

That is so freakin' unbelievable! I was -----> <------ (this close) to booking a trip. AHHHHH!!!! Only two problems though, one - it would be financially irresponsible, two - I don't have enough vacation time accrued from eBay yet. Oh well ... another great deal will come along I guess.

I'm not exactly why I crave Disney so much. It's weird. I'd like to get to the point where I take two BIG vacations a year. One to Disney, and one somewhere else. It's not fun to travel with the kids quite yet, so I'll wait a few more years, then we'll start to do some major stuff.

On another note, I think I'll put my Christmas lights up today since it's mild outside. We'll see how lazy I am.

Well, I would have liked to post earlier, but things have been busy.

It's always busy around here.

Halloween was AWESOME! Everyone in the family dressed up. Lily was a vampress, Lydia decided to be Minnie Mouse at the last second, even though she had a new pirate costume. Arik was Squirt and Duncan was Nemo. Ian and I were both pirates. Ian looks so cute with 'Jack Sparrow' dreadlocks. *sigh*

We also carved pumpkins earlier that week. I thought it would be fun to make 'pumpkin surprise' and put the boys inside. It was fun for a few minutes, then they had had enough! Oh well ... it was fun while it lasted.

My dad celebrated his 70th birthday on November 2nd. We had a party for him on the 1st at Sizzler's. I was pleasantly surprised at the food. Not bad at all. My dad thinks he's going to die any day now. He's so weird.

Nate and Mary stayed with us. It's always nice when they come. The girls love it! It's all they talk about because they love their cousins, Kyla and Shannon. I'm sure once our boys are older, they and Asher will be best buds... not to mention Micah.

I'm still training for my new job at eBay. It's awesome ... hopefully I'll be able to move up fast and get back to my pay where I was at UPS. So far, the gamble is paying off.

That's all for now ...
