    Walt Disney World – Day 5 – Magic Kingdom – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party!

    When we got back to the hotel after our morning adventures at the Magic Kingdom we stopped off at the shop to purchase some warm clothes. Hurricane Sandy was still around and the temperature was noticeably colder and it was very windy. This did change our plans for the Halloween party as we were all going to dress up for it, Ethan as Buzz Lightyear and Darren and I were going as Hawaiian Barbie and Ken. It was not going to be warm enough for our Hawaiian clothes and our wigs wouldn’t have lasted ten minutes in the wind but thankfully Ethan’s outfit was big enough that we could put the newly purchased Disney tracksuit underneath…

    Ethan’s Obsessions – Pooh’s Heffalump Movie

    Ethan has a few obsessions and they do change depending on his mood.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    It’s Valentine’s Day, a day that we don’t normally celebrate as we are normally saving for something like a wedding or a house and we prefer to put the money that we would have spent into the savings pot.  This year I was planning to bake some cookies this afternoon to give to Darren when he gets in, nothing exciting just another packet mix to do with Ethan, but the day hasn’t gone as planned.  Ethan is running a temperature and has a cough and a cold so isn’t feeling 100% this means that we had to skip his swimming lesson today and have spent the day on the sofa watching TV. He also…
