CHRISTmas at Disney

Disney's 2010 theme is "What Will You Celebrate?" and we had a lot of celebrating to do: the birth of JESUS our Savior!!, my mom joined us on our trip which made it so much more special to me, my beautiful family, and while we were there my oldest son turned ten.

A Little Fall Fun
