Hello my friends! My family and I just got back from a week in Anaheim, CA. My mom met us down there as well and we had a great time. While we were there we celebrated Evy's 4th birthday, spent three days at Disneyland, went to the ocean, visited Hollywood, and of course found time for antiquing. It was so much fun, and always tough to come back to the norm of work and day-to-day stuff that isn't nearly so fun. I wanted to let you know ahead of time that I was going to be in California, but unfortunately our car was broken into right before we left, and multiple things were taken, including our checkbook with address. In addition was Steve's planner, which had a packing list in it - needless to say, we were very concerned about leaving our house when thieves had our address so I didn't feel comfortable announcing our time away. I'm including a few (many) pictures from our trip - specifically some of Disneyland and the fall decorating they did there. I loved it!
There's just something magical about this castle, especially at night when it's all lit up.
Some of the Disney decorations were sweet - like this one. Others were a bit more sinister.

Mom and Evy with more sweet decorations.
The Haunted Mansion - It was creepy, fun, and really put me in the Halloween spirit - as if I wasn't already in the mood :o)
Can you see those beautiful hanging mum baskets. They're big mum balls.
Evy was more of the "admire Mickey from afar" school of thought. She was all talk while in line, but when it came right down to it, she was just too afraid to hug giant mice, bears named Pooh, and Mad Hatters. Princesses were okay though - she was all about the princess hugs.
This was in our hotel room on Evy's birthday. Up next, princess hugs.
Snow White with Snow White. Such a special day for all of us.
When we weren't at Disneyland, we were doing lots of other fun things - antiquing being one of them. I'll show you some of the fun things I got once I get them into position. I hope you all had a good week. I'm back to work tomorrow for one day, and then flying back to California on Tuesday for the rest of the week for work - this time San Jose. I'm sure it will be fun, but it tires me out thinking about hopping back onto a plane and doing the hotel thing again. I'll have some down time at night though, which will be nice. Thanks for indulging all of the pictures. You may see a few more here and there in future posts.
