Thanksgiving with Mickey

This last Thanksgiving, we thought we'd change things up a bit and go out of town (and NOT cook). Of course we picked Disneyland . . .

We stretched our legs in Vegas . . .


These are the biggest gumballs I've ever seen!

Our first day at Disneyland was Elliot's birthday. 9!

Happy Birthday E!

Elliot was chosen for the Jedi Training Academy. Probably because of the sign . . .

Jack Skellington is Elliot's favorite character.

Some group shots:

We were thrilled to see that they brought back Captain EO. Awesome.

Of course, the best thing about Disneyland is the rides. This was the first time that we were able to go on ALL of the rides together. Super fun!

Oh, let's not forget about Thanksgiving dinner! We had ours on Main Street.
Two versions of turkey dinner:

We also spent a day in Hollywood . . .

. . . and Newport Beach.

I honestly have no idea why we make them roll up their pants. Like it helps.

Yay for vacations!

Hey, I haven't seen your blog in a while so I was just catching up. How are you? Your Disneyland trip looks fun. I've always wanted to go at Christmas time.
Your kids are so big!!
Hey, this is a random question but what are the names of your kids' schools and what HS they will go to? You can email that info to me.
Take care and we'll talk to you soon,
