Holiday in Florida

As a fun-filled holiday tradition, our family heads to Disney for their Very Merry Christmas Party. Fireworks, rollercoasters and this year, the new Fantasy Land.  (Yes, that’s make-believe snow you see, falling from the sky.)

We go with about ten other families and make a long weekend of the festivities, corralling the troops within a span of “cabins.” Trailers in fact, but as with everything Disney does, the transformation is pretty decent.

The kids take over the street, throwing a football, playing cornpoke (??) and generally run non-stop. Saturday is our famous kickball game out on the field behind our cabins, serving up big fun for adults and kids alike.  At night, it’s pot luck and this year, one of the families brought a projector and makeshift outdoor screen.  We sat around our campfire and watched Elf, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas…

It was fun.  And better yet, it was warm.  But not because I’m worried about freezing at the park.  Nope.  I have three beds of green tomatoes hanging out back in my garden and last year, we had a hard freeze this time of year. Wiped me out completely.

Hello, Sunshine! 🙂  It’s good to be home, decorate the tree and pick plump, juicy red ones.

How about you?  What are you doing this time of year?
