Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving 2009 has come and gone. It was a very eventful few days. We celebrated Abbie's first birthday on Sunday. Believe it or not, we braved the black Friday crowds and did a lot of shopping. Did a lot of eating/cooking, enjoyed fine wines and good company. Abbie also got her ears pierced. Enjoy the pictures! Happy Holidays.

So it's been since March 5th that I posted anything at all. Since most of the family ventured on to Facebook I guess that became the primary mode of sharing pictures and what not. It's about time I take the time to give a better update on what's been happening in the McKinney family.

Abbie turns 1 this week. UNBELIEVABLE! She's walking now and saying little baby/toddler sentences.

We took her as well as Lindsay's side of the family on a cruise in September. For some it was their first cruise ever, and for others it was their first Disney cruise. A great time was definitely had by everyone!

Lindsay's career remains the same, however I have moved from the Magic Kingdom, back to the Yacht & Beach, back the Hollywood Studios, back to the Yacht & Beach and eventually landing at Epcot. I have been there since late June and am really enjoying the role I'm in.

We also completed, what is considered by some, the hardest step in Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover "baby steps". Back in July we became debt free, and the feeling is everything we hoped it would be and more.

The pineapple on the patio is growing like a weed! We should start seeing a fruit (hopefully) sometime in February or March. I tried my hand at some Impatien flowers from the Epcot Flower and Garden festival which are apparently very finnicky to grow. They were doing amazingly well until I over fertilized them. So alas, I have since moved on to growing fresh garlic on the patio.

Christmas decorations are already up and family gets into town next weekend. We have a big week ahead of work and Kentucky Wildcat Basketball. Hope everyone is doing well. Feel free to keep up via Facebook or Twitter. Take care!

And the joys of parenthood never cease to amaze...
Lindsay and I were able to take Abbie on her second trip to the Magic Kingdom yesterday. We went with the sole purpose of seeing the new Celebrate a Dream Come True parade. A good time was had by all. Abbie stayed awake for the whole thing and appeared to simply take it all in. I can only imagine what a parade looks like to a 15 week old.

It was a great day filled with meeting many of the folks Daddy works with, and seeing new sites. Enjoy the pictures, see you again soon!
