My Fave Souvenir

I'm not a big one on souvenirs --
well, except I do usually get a refrigerator magnet.

That just seems a little dorky now that I say it out loud.

Who collects refrigerator magnets???

But, there was a woman doing caricatures on the Boardwalk one evening,
and so Miss Maddy plopped herself down in the chair
with Sorcerer Mickey in tow and had her picture drawn.
(Thought I did such a great job scanning it
until I just realized I missed part of the castle
that she drew on the right-hand side.)
Oops -- visualize it there, ok!

I love it -- I really love it!
For once, a cool souvenir from Disney* and it's not a magnet!

What an adorable cartoon drawing of Maddy!

We just brought a magnet home from Adventureland of the boys riding a rollercoaster. I guess we can join the dork club too!

Enjoy your short week!

Gail said...

Well I think it's wonderful and looks exactly like miss Maddy! Great memory of your Disney trip. :)

Hope you are having a great week, wondering when Maddy is out for the Summer, we get out June 10th.

You are right, this is a great souvenir...for sure! I think the magnet collecting is awesome. When I met my husband, he collected spoons from all the places he visited. I thought it was charming and now we have them piled in a bowl...they make a great conversation piece! :)

I used to collect fridge magnets and then one day, I just threw them all out. LOL! My fridge looked crazy nuts all of a sudden!

I think that's really cool! The artist did a great job and what a neat thing to be able to have forever.
Maybe you can use all of those magnets and hang it on the fridge??

Love it! And the Tongginator's godmother (who happens to be a close friend, obviously) totally collects refrigerator magnets. Which makes you a non-dork in my book.
