Welcome 2012!

It's New Year's Eve!

Time to break out the party clothes...

prepare the hors d'oeuvres... 

pop open the champagne...

and ring in the New Year.

Welcome 2012!

A New Year

My wish for you in the New Year is that it brings you much happiness.

And all the sweetness that life has to offer.

May your heart be light.

Maybe this year you will travel to some fabulous place.

Or spend some much needed alone time.

Whatever you have planned, Celebrate the New Year in a big way - a celebration in our hearts... for a new year holds many blessings.

I thank you for your friendship.

The Merriest Place on Earth

It's Christmas time at the happiest place on earth!

So of course Jess and I had to pay a visit to our favorite magical kingdom. ( ;

Main Street is all decked out in holiday trimmings.

A giant Christmas tree adorns the town square.

Fantasy Land is always a favorite. And the snow-capped towers were a real treat!

We love Snow White's Adventure, the King Arthur Carousel, and Pinocchio's Daring Journey.

"I've got no strings
To hold me down
To make me fret, or make me frown
I had strings
But now I'm free
There are no strings on me!"

And of course the Matterhorn is a winter time favorite.

The holidays on the Frontier are especially merry.

Santa's reindeer welcome all the good boys and girls.

The day started out a bit cloudy, but after a warm cup of hot cocoa in the morning the skies started to clear.

"Zippity doo dah, Zippity aye,
My oh my what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine coming my way,
Zippity doo dah, Zippity aye."

And just in time for the Christmas parade!

Mickey waves a big holiday hello to everyone!

As the sun goes down, and the moon comes out, the holiday light shows begin!

It's a Small World is illuminated by thousands of bright colored bulbs. 

"There's so much that we share
That it's time we're aware
It's a small world after all."

And most spectacular of all, the lights on Main Street are dimmed...The countdown begins...And the enchanted Sleeping Beauty Castle comes to life!

The best part is the gingerbread-scented snow that falls on merry guests strolling through Main Street. 

We just love the holidays at Disneyland.

A very magical Christmas to you!

Christmas by the Sea

A nighttime stroll by the harbor makes any evening exceptional...

Especially during the holiday season...

After a bite to eat and a tour through the charming neighborhoods...

It was time to return to my own little home, curl up under a warm blanket, and watch a Christmas movie.

I hope you have a very Christmas-sea weekend ;-)
