M-I-C....K-E-Y...

M-O-U-S-E!!!!!!

My good friend Amy from San Diego sent us this ornament for our tree either last year or the year before...and it is one of my favorites! Any of you who've been around here for long know how I love Disney.

Love, love, love, love, LOVE IT!!!!

It's the happiest place on earth! It's magical! It's the only place where everyone gets to be a kid again! I would go twice a year if I could...no joke. Every time we've been out to Cali to visit Amy and her family, we go to Disney. It is a MUST. If I get within driving range of that place, it's like a tractor beam pulls me in...I can think of nothing else!

So for a few years now, at Christmas time, Amy sends me some sort of Disney related item. She is the best gift-giver!!! Here are a random sampling of some previous years' gifts:Cloth napkins, embroidered with Mickey

Disney wine charms

Disney Antenna toppers...the Mickey one was on my van, the Pluto on Barry's truck. Unfortunately, my Accord doesn't have an antenna!

The Mickey egg timer

My fave mixing bowls, the middle sized one fell out of the cabinet and broke this spring...I was so sad!

Mickey appetizer plates...need I say more?

As you can see, one of the reasons I love Amy's gifts are because she never sends something ridiculous or tacky just because it's Mickey. The gifts she sends are cool, classic, functional, and well-thought out. Amy is the best, even though she DOES think I'm a tree-huggin', feng-shui, granola cruncher!

Oh My NOLA is a great album. Listen all the time. I have Harry for the Holidays but not his new one... hmmm, stocking stuffer?

Thanks for sharing ideas and more about you. Knew you liked Disney, just to to what extent.

What FUN! I have never been a Disney fan...but then..that could be because I've NEVER BEEN THERE! I HAVE always wanted to go though....
Anyway, Love your Mickey collection. That stuff is so cute!

LOVE the Christmas Wish List! I did that last year too..but Santa must have missed it because I think I could re-post that entire list this year! oh well...I had fun reading yours! Hope your Santa comes thru!! :o)
