Christmas With the Gang - Wonderful!

We had a great time with the Gang in Forida for Christmas at Disney World.  The weather didn't exactly cooperate with us as it got a bit cold on a few of the days, but the Gang wasn't about to let that deter them from taking full advantage of everything there was to do.  Matthew at age 4 going on 5 was absolutely enchanted and had a ball.  All the rest of the Gang had been there before, so they looked forward to all the fun as they knew what to expect.  Our first stop was EPCOT Center on Christmas Eve.
 Lot of shoes lined up by the door.
 EVERYBODY gets their hair spiffed up before any outing.  That's Jenny with Noah and Matthew.
 The whole Gang and Grampa and Gramma at EPCOT (notice the EPCOT ball in the background).
 Each of the kids were numbered (!) and then there were mom, dad, grampa and gramma.  T-shirts were really cool.  (Remember, you can click on the images to see them full-size.)
 The tram at EPCOT.
 Inside one of the buildings at EPCOT.  Love the balloons.
 The tree at EPCOT was magnificent.
 Christmas morning - everybody gets new Christmas pj's on Christmas Eve.  This is Allie with Caleb.
 Needless to say, Allie had a hand in decorating the Christmas tree at our house. . . .
 Stockings for the Gang of Eight.
 Grampa and Caleb.
 Jenny and Zack enjoying each other on Christmas morning - I think Jenny liked her gift!
 Jenny was talking to her sister, Katie, in Germany as she sat with the boys in the hot tub at our house.
 Allie in her "attitude" glasses.  She does have attitude!
 Love this picture of Noah - he is wearing his new "spy" glasses!  What is this "glasses" thing?!!
 Christmas Dinner - Pizza at Wolfgang Puck at Disney Downtown.  Somewhat unorthodox for Christmas dinner - but nobody went hungry!
 Allie the actor always
 Oh, if only you could see the full shot of this one!!!
 Dr. Seuss at Universal Studios Great Adventures.
 Is that Josh under there???
 Finally, we made it to Magic Kingdom at Disney World - our favorite day.
 Mickey and Minnie dressed for Christmas.
 The ever famous Dumbo ride (we did not stand in line for this one - whatever you do, DO NOT GO TO DISNEY WORLD AT CHRISTMAS.)
 Love this shot.  So beautiful at night.
 By the numbers.  The Gang showing off their t-shirts.
The house we rented - it was perfect!
