Let's Catch Up! // Polaroids of the Past Few Months

Hello, sweet friends!  I hope you've been well!  My blogging break went a bit longer than anticipated, but boy has it been an incredible past several months!  I said I'd return from hiatus in the fall, so I thought I'd better keep my word and share what we've been up to before it's officially winter tomorrow! ;)

Let's start at Summer Break!  We celebrated Jason's birthday at a fabulous beach resort with a lake view room and all sorts of fun complimentary amenities!  We had such a great time we declared this our newest family tradition!  Is it almost June yet? ;)  

Family Vacation 2016 // CALIFORNIA
This year's family vacation was hands down my favorite in the history of ever!  We spent two weeks in the stunningly gorgeous state of California!  The first week was one big epic road trip exploring the state and the second was spent at Disneyland!  I'm really looking forward to bringing you a new installation of my Trip Report Tuesday blog series in the new year covering this trip of a lifetime!  In the meantime, here's a sneak peek of the fun, in polaroid form...

We spent September 18th through the 23rd in the Disneyland Parks.  I took enough snapshots during that week to fill a hundred posts, so I'll just share a few glimpses of that most magical week for now.  They'll be plenty more to come when Trip Report Tuesday returns in 2017! . . .

So, there's a teensy lit'l taste of what we've been up to!  2016 has easily been one of my favorite years EVER!  Looking forward to sharing more in the new year to come, but first, let's have ourselves a Merry lit'l Christmas now!  

Hope you'll pop back over to my nook of the blogosphere after the holidays!  We have so much more chatting to do, friends! :)  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years!

  6. One of my former 5th grade students and her husband created "World of Color" and "World of Color Christmas." She's a big wig at CA...and she takes care of many VIPs! My favorite was when she picked up some of the original Mouseketeers at the airport!
