    Happy New Year, Everyone!!!

    I hope you're all doing well and having a wonderful 2018 so far! I have surpassed @ariane37 in our competition for Worst TR Reporter of 2017 :rotfl: But I'm back and hope to get myself back on track. My sister's visit from England was wonderful and she arrived back to London safely a couple days ago. Our trip to Disney had many, many wonderful moments but wasn't without some frustrations (namely the weather! I'm sure @xlsm, @Pluto0809, @MeghanEmily felt my pain!). The weather was so bad, in fact, that we ended up switching both our days so I didn't end up seeing anyone from the Dis :guilty: In other news, my computer totally broke down on me a couple weeks ago and I only replaced it two nights ago and am finally logging back onto the Dis! I have missed you all! I'll slowly start to catch up on all your TRs and try to get mine back on track. The problem will be dealing with my photos as I *believe* I have them all in the cloud... :rolleyes1 They sure aren't on my phone as that also broke down a couple months ago and I had to replace that too :headache: :laughing:

    At any rate, here are a couple from the trip during our brunch at Chef Mickey's - definitely one of the highlights of our the trip as the kids had an absolute AMAZING time (as did the crazed adult in the Minnie costume in the second picture... :rolleyes1)

    Are these two kids just the cutest or what?! :goodvibes They just make my heart so happy :love:

    You'll note I'm wearing leggings not for the fashion statement but for the warmth. I actually had two pairs on that day! And our day at MK I had two pairs of leggings AND a pair of jeans and I was still frozen the whole day :sad2: But at least I was at Disney with some of my most favorite people, right? :goodvibes

    See ya real soon!

    Oh my gosh, horrendous! So cold!

    Nooo! You're really struggling with technology! :(

    This is soo sweet! And I feel you on the double leggings thing. When debating a name for my future TR for this trip, I thought long and hard about calling it, "But What About Second Pants?" Because I wore two pairs of sweat pants and/or leggings most days and I still froze. We would be out, and I'd reach into my book bag and tell my family, "hold on, I need more pants!" Or, "guess what! I'm wearing two pants!" was said on more than one occasion. *shiver*

    Right back atcha!

    This year has been more of an even one, so far. Last year was odd.

    Wait... that's just math.

    :laughing:
    But you have good excuses!

    Oh, no! That's too bad!!

    Holy crap. What techno god did you tick off???

    That's great! :)

    :laughing:

    :goodvibes

    Pretty as always! :)

    Holy crap!
    I don't do that when it's -40. Just how cold was it???

    ::yes::

    Welcome home!

    I really am! I hope my luck starts to change! :laughing:

    Thanks :goodvibes

    Right?! Love your "I need another pair of pants!"

    :rotfl2:

    This is true!

    It was! ::yes::

    I have no idea! But hopefully my last offering will fix this for the future! ;)

    Awww shucks :goodvibes

    :laughing: I know! I'm a seasoned New Yorker which means I know cold... but when you're not just running to and from your car into the warmth of the closest building and instead waiting in crowded parks to even use the bathroom, it seemed a lot colder than it actually was probably :rotfl:

    Thank you!

    Thanks!

    Thank you! I got it at Burlington a few years ago :thumbsup2

    Thank you! I really did :goodvibes

    Thanks! With any luck, I'll have another update this weekend... :thumbsup2

    Happy New Year to you too! May this one be a bit less technology challenged. And I hope that your "belief" that your pictures are in the cloud turns out to be the truth.

    Sorry your weather wasn't too good on your trip...but it might still beat the weather we've been having here in the northeast the past couple weeks...and I imagine upstate NY must have been beyond frigid.

    Your pic with Minnie is a keeper! Too bad you didn't have yellow shoes...

    Happy new year!

    Happy to see you’re back! I find it even hard to keep up with reading all the TR I want to follow!

    Adorable Minnie dress, and man I hear you on being cold. I was there last week too, and I was wearing mittens (with hand-warmers inside) for most of the days.

    That cold!!! BRRRRRR!!!! I honestly wore two pairs of pants almost every single day of our trip! Thankfully the leggings under jeans trick worked very well! We didn't have coats with us either, so I wore like 3 or 4 shirts every day, too. I just kept telling myself, you are in Disney World! You are not at work!!!

    :laughing: OK so right now you're the front runner, but let's see what happens between now and whenever I actually finish my TR!

    Oh man, that blows. I've had DISMeets planned and had to miss them due to schedule changes, too. Hopefully there will be a next time :)

    When Steve and I went January 2016 it was like a bad NY winter down there. During the day we had on our North Face jackets, hats, I had gloves, long pants, two pairs of socks :sad2: One day I even had to buy earmuffs at AK because my hat wasn't cutting it. I hate the August heat but being that cold in Disney was no fun, either.

    Ah...............hope to see you real soon!!!!! :D

    I think everyone is a bit behind with the holidays and all. Welcome back!

    The cloud kind of creeps me out.. I don't understand how it works! It makes me feel old.


    Very CUTE!!! Did you walk around all day in those shoes?!?!

    Nope. Everyone makes those offerings.
    They're always rejected. Sometimes quickly. Sometimes it takes a year or two.

    This is me.
    -30 out.
    Boots. Jeans. T-shirt. Hat. Gloves.

    Good to go shovel for an hour.

    I'm so glad you're back!

    I love your outfit! You can pretend it was for a fashion statement, Minnie's got them on too :rotfl:

    Aww, thank you! :goodvibes

    This is so true ::yes::

    Thank you! Yes, I sure hope so! :laughing:

    You and me both, my friend, you and me both... ;)

    Yes! That was the weather report I was getting from people back home - it may have been cold in Florida, but it was REALLY cold here in New York! :faint:

    Thank you! Right?! I actually do have the yellow shoes... I just didn't think to pack them! :confused3

    Thank you!

    Thank you, Lauren :goodvibes It really does get challenging at times, especially when things are especially busy as they have been for the holidays and everything!

    Thank you! :goodvibes

    Oh, that's right! I couldn't remember all the tickers I saw from all us Disers going down aroudn the same time. Glad you were prepared, we weren't :laughing:

    Right?! It was terrible!

    That's right, you went down for the race, right? I lost track of all of us who were down there! We should have all met and huddled up for warmth :laughing:

    :rotfl2:

    It was such a bummer! But yes, hopefully next time :thumbsup2

    Exactly! I think I'll take the August heat though ;)

    :thumbsup2

    Thank you!

    It really was :goodvibes

    True! And I'm counting on that fact... because that'll mean I'm not quite as behind as I might think :laughing:

    Right?! I don't understand it either!

    Thank you! That was actually the only "Disney" thing we did that day, so I didn't have much walking to do after all :thumbsup2

    :faint:

    :worship:

    Thank you!

    Yes! Very true! I was merely trying to be authentic, right?! :laughing:

    I think Disney cold is worse than other cold. It’s the same on the Gulf Coast — wet cold feels so much worse.
