Pictures from Disneyland

We've been home or almost two weeks and I'm finally getting around to posting a few of our pics from Disneyland.  We had so much fun and it will be a vacation to remember for sure.  I'm so glad my niece Kolbi was able to go to Disneyland with us. She's a special little girl.  

We arrived at Disneyland on Wednesday evening.  We checked into the Disneyland Hotel and headed for Downtown Disney to grab a bite to eat and just check it out.  We ate on the patio at the Rain Forrest Cafe.  The food was great as always and the girls had so much fun just laughing and being girls.  After we ate we decided to check out some of the stores.  They had a Build A Bear and Kolbi had never been so in we went.  Alyssa showed Kolbi how it all worked and Kolbi made a Golden Retriever and named her Bell.  She also got Belle's yellow gown from Beauty & The Beast to dress her dog in.  Alyssa got a bunny rabbit and named her Kolbi...hehe...she got the Snow White outfit and we got done just as the store was closing.  We went back to the hotel and got a good night sleep as we knew Thursday would be a long day at Disneyland.  

We got up early and was at the gate to enter Disney at 9am.  We purchased lanyards for the girls and some trading pins to trade with the Disney cast members.  Alyssa was amazed and thought Disneyland was so cool.  Most of the ride wait times were less that 30 minutes which made for a very enjoyable day at Disneyland.  We rode all of the rides we'd marked with Splash Mountain being the next to last ride.   We waited the longest for Splash Mountain and Kolbi & I got the front of the log.  I was not too excited about this ride as I knew there was a chance we'd get wet.  Well, wet is an understatement.  I had to ride in the VERY front...and when we got off the ride I didn't have one square inch of my clothes that wasn't wet...Kolbi too.  We were both WET RATS.  We decided it was time to head back to the hotel but decided we could squeeze in one last we rode the Jungle Ride as it only had a 10 minute wait time.  Throughout the day, the girls traded pins all through the park with the cast members always hunting for Hidden Mickey pins .  We were all EXHAUSTED and slept like babies.  

We didn't get up quit as early on Friday but still made it over to California Adventure Park by 10 am.  We really enjoyed the park and our favorite ride was California Screamin'...a FAST and smooth roller coaster that I could have rode a dozen times and not gotten tired of it.  I was worried Alyssa would chicken out as the roller coaster had a loop and Alyssa was not so sure about going upside down.  SHE LOVE IT!!!!!  Another fun thing we did at California Adventure Park was go to the Bugs Live 3D show.  It was so cool and I actually think it's considered a 4D show as it included our sense of touch and smell.  We were squirted with water and the stink bug blew a big stinky at us....and it smelled just like a real stink bug.  How did they do that??
I hope we will be able to take Alyssa back to Disneyland or even Disney World again soon.  It was the best vacation ever.  

My New Grandpuppy - LUCKY

While I was away over Spring Break in California my son Mike & his girlfriend Miranda rescued a dog from the Moore animal shelter.  Her name is Lucky and she got that name because she's so lucky that they rescued her.  My grandpuppy came to visit me this afternoon.  Lucky is has a black shinny coat and a white chest.  She's really really pretty and very good natured.  She and my Boston Terrier Cookie hit it off.  But Cookie wanted to make sure Lucky knew she was the queen and Lucky was the princess.  Of course Lucky is way way bigger than Cookie, but Lucky respected Cookie's standing in our home.  They chased each other all over the living room.  Mike and Miranda also brought Lucky's big throw pillow over and Cookie very quickly took possession of it despite the fact that it wasn't hers.  I am just blown away by how good and CALM Lucky is.  I have really enjoyed her visit today and I hope she comes to visit Grandma Pam again soon.

Stamp Club on Saturday

I'm so excited about Stamp Club.  I feel so bad because we had to cancel last weekend due to the potential blizzard that was suppose to hit OKC that brought us a beautiful dusting of snow.  The weathermen in OKC are the best at predicting snow.  Thank goodness they are better at predicting tornados.

I have 3 fun cards, 12x12 Easter scrapbook pages, and a cute basket made from the Big Shot envelope die.  I will try to post photos a little later tonight.  We are heading out for some dinner.  IHOP or Chilli's.  Hmmm.....which one will we choose??

Snow or No Snow????

I feel so bad because I canceled stamp club yesterday.   I had everything ready to go, but the weather men kept saying 100% snow and not just a dusting, but 4-8 inches.  So I decided it would be in everyone's best interest cancel and reschedule for next Saturday.  Well, the weathermen really missed the mark yet again.  We got a dusting....a stinkin' dusting.  So we canceled for nothing.  But...if I'd of not canceled we would have gotten 10 inches of snow.  Go figure...hehe

I had a second stamping event scheduled for Saturday afternoon at a retirement center in Edmond, OK.  Because the only person who would be traveling was me I told the director that I'd make the decision around noon on Saturday if I was coming or not.  Beings as our wonderful weathermen missed the forecast by a long shot up to Edmond I headed.  My friend Janna went with me and my SIL Susie & her friend Kara met me there.  We we only suppose to have 4 stampers, but when I walked into the room there sat 5 ladies & 1 gentleman so excited about stamping.  We got started and in wondered 5 more stampers.  We had a total of 11 stampers and they had so much fun.  It was so rewarding to share my love of stamping and a little bit of my time with some amazing people.  A couple of the stampers had suffered strokes so they were limited on how much they could do.  They were able to stamp, but punching and putting the cards together was where we had to help out.  They were all so pleased with what they had made and promised me that they would mail the cards they made and I promised them I'd come stamp again next month.  We had a husband & wife stamp with us...they have been married 64 years and were each 88 years old.  They were so cute together.  I just can't wait to go stamp again with my new senior friends.
