Our family loves Disneyland. We are total Disneyland freaks-- have been for a long time. We've had annual passes for 13 years, so being together at Disneyland is part of our family's fondest memories and traditions. Our son, Andrew, has worked at Disneyland for around 5 years now. He's a multi-character performer out in the park as well as in parades, and absolutely LOVES his job. I'm not supposed to be specific about what he does, (ruins the Disney magic, don't ya know!) but I will post some personal Disney pictures here that will give you some mighty big hints!
We love to just walk around Disneyland and watch people. We also love to go listen to the live Big Band music on Saturday nights and watch people swing dance. Swing dancing fascinates me. I wish I was that coordinated!
Christmas decorations are slowly going up now at D-land! I love it when they transform the park for Christmas. So does Michelle! She comes out to visit me every year in November so we can go do the "Christmas Disney" trip! Each year in December Disney puts on a mega Christmas concert called the "Candlelight Processional", and they hold auditions for local schools and church choirs to sing in it. Our school choir passed auditions in '05 and performed in the concert, and we've also passed again this year. YAY! I always get to go as a "singing chaperone", so I'm excited! It's doubly fun this year because Tori is in choir and we get to go together. It's such a blessing to be able to perform in this concert because we get to sing about Christ's birth, and the narrator (who is always a celebrity) speaks of Christ's birth and also recites the poem "One Solitary Life". It's the only spiritual thing that ever happens at Disneyland!!
