I've been tagged!

I have been tagged by Michele. http://michele32scrappin.blogspot.com/

Rulez:Here are the rules which must be posted on your blog if you are tagged: 1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.2. Share 7 facts about yourself: some random, some weird.3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).4. Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.

So, decided to make my "7 Facts" about Halloween:

1. I've always loved dressing up for Halloween and used to have Pumpkin carving parties when I was single.
2. In 6th or 7th grade, my friend Maureen & I dressed up silly to go "Trick or Treating" one last year... and we were told at one house that we were too old...sigh...
3. In college at UNC-CH, Halloween was a big party; but the best one was the year we went to the children's wing of the hospital in the afternoon to entertain the kids.
4. I had tons of fun being a "Mime" for Halloween in college (except when the heart I painted on my face did not come off for weeks).
5. I've made lots of costumes but have only sewn one: Hobbes the tiger from Calvin & Hobbes. That "fur" messed up my sewing machine, LOL! Kent was Calvin.
6. One year I was a Teller II machine - fun interactive costume! No, I did not keep any of the debit or credit cards :-)
7. This year Seth is going as Harry Potter, so although obsessed with horses and in possession of a horse costume, Tessa wants to be Hermione. Go figure! Pics will be posted in a few days.

Happy Halloween!

Okay, here's what I've realized. I'm not much of a blogger or even a very regular blog reader. And I can't think of one of my "IRL" buddies that has a blog. That said, I will tag some of my online pals (but if you don't want to "play tag", I totally understand). And I don't know how to link your blog with your name, so I'm just naming you... guess I better get more educated in blogging!

So, "TAG" Tali, Christy, Chrissy, Rachel, Terri, Susan & Karen (all Willows!)

Disney Trip!

We had the most wonderful vacation the last week of September at Disney World! We visited all 4 parks and had so many "magical" moments.

Seth really wanted Tessa to get to wake up Tinkerbell like he did when he was almost 4. Alas, we were too late. But because Kent was wearing his birthday button (and received about 100 "happy birthdays", was sung to, and got a free mini-cake), a "Dreams Castmember" remembered Kent and Tessa from Tink's Treasures in the morning. She asked Tessa to be the Cruise Director at It's a Small World and she was precious. Tessa waved from the booth and then waved at all the dolls when we rode in the first car! We also were in a group at "Dinosaur" in Animal Kingdom to receive "million dreams" lanyards and pins; then we were chosen to be the family of "Time Traveler Specialists" and got our own car to ride through Dinosaur. Fun!

So many special memories: Soarin' at Epcot, Buzz Lightyear many times (Kent was the winner - Space Ace with over 500,000 points!), Character meetings and autographs, roller coasters, Primeval Twirl for Seth, Epcot Food & Wine Festival for us while kids enjoyed Cub's Den, jet-skiing at resort lake for K & S, the Jamitors at Epcot and jugglers at AK, talking Harry Potter with "Shaq" at Disney MGM, "Lights Motors Action" show at MGM, terrific view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks from our condo's back window... and so much more!
