I Need Your Input

Hello again, Friends!  If you read my post yesterday you know that I have "committed" to writing on my blog again regularly to keep this little memory book alive for my family .  If you didn't read my post yesterday, just skip it because that's the gist of it.

Anyway, one of the things I most enjoy doing with Eric and the kids is traveling...specifically to Disney World.  We have visited the parks six times in eight years, and I enjoy the planning process ALMOST as much as I do the actual visit.

Through my research of the parks, I have noticed something interesting.  There are two kinds of "Disney Experts."  The first group is made up of people who travel often, like three or four times a year. They stay in the Deluxe Hotels, dine in the Signature Restaurants, and wear designer clothes to the hottest place on the planet!

The other group of "Disney Experts" are on the opposite extreme of the spectrum.  They coupon their way to Disney, hit up all the free activities outside of the parks, and never set foot inside one of the festive restaurants.

While I have learned a lot of helpful things from BOTH groups of "Disney Experts," I find it interesting that there is so little information out there for "Real Families" like mine. You know what I'm talking about, families who need to save money but don't want to completely skip out on the magical experiences avaiable.

So...all of that to ask if you would be interested in a weekly post about how we make Disney work for us, the Watson Family.  I am NOT a "Disney Expert," so it would just be tips, tricks and thoughts from my personal experiences.  I'm thinking about topics like how we plan or trip, Fast Past suggestions, restaurant/ride reviews and sneak peaks of the resorts we have called home on our visits.

I get asked a lot about our trips, so I know there is at least some interest but you tell me...would you be interested?  Is that something that would be helpful or just annoying?

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
