Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us!

Happy Thanksgiving

Sophie and Grandpa were reading a story together on Thanksgiving Day, 2008.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at My Dreams of Disney! Today my family sits down for a good Thanksgiving meal with my Mom and niece and her baby girl.  A lot of love goes into our meal prep, and on this day, we here at My Dreams of Disney want to take a moment and wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving.  My prayer for all of you is that you are able to be with the ones you love on this day.  For those of you that have to work, especially those that are in our law enforcement, EMS, and fire departments, you have our thanks.

If you are traveling on this day, may safe travels be the rule, and may you reach your destination on time and without mishap.

If you have to work because you don’t have any other choice, then you have my sympathy and prayers that next year you would have the ability and means to work because you want to, not because you have no choice.

If you are a Cast Member at any of the Disney Parks, my prayer is that you would be treated with the respect you deserve, both from your boss and others in charge as well as by those Guests that you serve.

Whatever you are doing, and wherever you are, may we all remember that there are those that are so much less fortunate than we are, despite our circumstances, and may we all remember that we are all human beings, and to treat ourselves with the respect that we all deserve and should expect.

Lastly, my prayers go out to those in our armed services, but especially to those on deployment right now, and unable to be with us on these special days. Shane, I’m looking at you, and praying daily for you and your men.

I close with these words from Scripture. Here now the Word of God for renewal of your strength and a reminder of who God really is:

28Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. 29He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. ~ Isaiah 40:28-31 (NIV)

Happy Birthday Mickey and Minnie!

Happy 88th Birthday to Mickey & Minnie!

Happy Birthday Mickey & Minnie! Today, 88 years ago, Mickey & Minnie made their “acknowledged” debut in Steamboat Willie! I say acknowledged because they were actually in Plane Crazy prior, but Steamboat Willie was the first one that they had voices! To celebrate all that they mean to Disney Fans across the world, here are some of my favorite pictures with Mickey & Minnie and our family. Enjoy!

The first picture was when Cindy and I saw Mickey & Minnie riding Dumbo with two very special Guests! Here’s another picture from that evening:

Our last picture comes to us from Disneyland. Here we are at the Big Thunder Ranch, just checking it out, when all of a sudden, these two came and we had our picture taken! There was practically no line!

Happy Birthday Mickey

To finish us off, here are the videos where our famous Mouse friends got their start! Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy! Do you have a favorite memory or picture of Mickey, Minnie, or both of them that you would like to share? If so, share it on our Facebook page or leave us a comment here! We’d love to see and hear about it!
