What An Amazing Find We Made

Recently we started cleaning out some things from many years ago that I had found.  In these items I found a old Mickey Mouse Christmas Ladder.  This ladder goes next to the Christmas Tree, and has lights, and moving parts.  I realized when we found it that it would take some serious amount of work to make this item work correctly.  I was going to throw it away, but my wife decided that the two of us should take a little time and try to make the necessary repairs.  After a few days we completed the repairs that we saw needed to be made.  Now the item is good as new.  The item won’t be sold by me, but I have seen this item go for some good money.  Thanks dear for advising me to keep it.

After we finished with that we continued going through the rest of the things that I had been collecting.  We found a very old 33 record, and book.  While these were nice back in the day the times have changed, and everything is audiobook, or other digital means.  If I had a usb turntable it may have swayed my decision to heave this item, but I am not going to go out and spend money to be able to use something that has absolutelly very little value at this point in time.

Disney For The Holidays

This year we are going to Disney World right after Christmas.  We still have family here so we have to make our appearances at their homes.  We are going to be in Disney for New Years.  We have already planned it out that we will be in the Magic Kingdom when the ball drops.  We haven’t done Disney at this time of year in a long time.  Keeping the weather in mind we have all packed some very thick jackets so that we don’t freeze.  From everything I have been reading, and watching the weather gets down at night.  Maybe ski jackets would work great.

We are all hoping that the crowds work with us while we are there being that we are only getting 1 park hopper each.  It will be nice to see the lights throughout the parks, and the Osbourne light display at Hollywood Studios.

Have you ever done Disney World during the holidays?  What did you think?

Disney Trading Pins Are Hard Gifts

Now that Christmas is here we are all running around like nuts trying to get our holiday shopping done.  Our little one is slightly puzzled because usually we go to Disney before the holidays, and she usually finds some of her gifts there.  She seems to like to get her Grandpa gifts that she picks out.  She used to get him some Disney Trading Pins, but they are hard to get because she never knows what he already has.

This year she is not sure what to do, but she knows that her grandpa loves Mickey Mouse, Coca Cola, and his computer.  We are going to look through some catalogs with her to help her with finding something.

How do you get someone Disney Pins without getting something that they may already have?

Disney Gift Giving

Christmas is upon us in just a little over a month.  With the holiday gift giving going on it brings a question to my mind.  What does Mickey Mouse get for Minnie Mouse at Christmas?  I am sure that they exchange cheese, and things like that.  I wonder if Mickey would get into video games?  I know he needs something to take his mind off the continual work that they have him doing in Walt Disney World, DisneyLand, and all the other parks.

One of these years I think Mickey should just pop the question and ask Minnie to marry him.  This would be the ultimate in Christmas gifts for girlfriends in my opinion.  It should have happened by now as far as I am concerned.  At least they were living in seperate houses until the Fantasyland Expansion started.

While I am in Disney World this December I plan on going to visit them with my family.  We usually get some good group shots with them.

What do you think about how long this relationship has been going on?  Don’t you think that they should get married, and get it over with?

Mariah Carey In Disney World

Being that I just couldn’t afford the trip down to Disney World this holiday season I will just have to wait to see Mariah on Christmas Day on my 55″ HDTV.  Mariah taped her act at Disney Worlds Magic Kingdom on December 3, 2010.  I have wanted to be in Disney for only 2 things in my life.  One of them will eventually come true. 

  1. Star Wars Weekends
  2. Mariah Carey performance

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM MC: Grammy Award-winning singer Mariah Carey performs Dec. 3, 2010 at the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., while taping the “Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade” TV special. Carey sings two songs — “Oh Santa” and “All I Want For Christmas is You” — in the annual holiday telecast that airs Dec. 25, 2010 on ABC-TV.
