Good Friends!

Now that we have been down here for a while, Adam and I have made some pretty amazing friends. We get to work with some of the most wonderful people. They are unique and kind and talented, and they hang out with us! We have the opportunity to be with these people every day. Thank you so much for accepting us into the family and making our lives more interesting and unique!
Adam and David Piggot at Rainforest Cafe. Two Bruces with so much in common!
Notice, even the tails are entwined!

Here is the part of the group we trained in with: Melanie (Nemo), Keith (Marlin), Rita (Dory and Coral/Peach), Bert (Crush/Marlin), Din (Bloat)

Halloween Parties!

We had a TON of Halloween parties this year. It was so much fun! The first one is a pumpkin carving party at Robby and Jim's home. Thanks for opening your home to this crazy bunch!

Matt, Corey and Sterling getting a wee too excited about pumpkin guts!

Adam and his puking pumpkin

Me and my pirate pumpkin

This is the group from Lesley Mann's GORGEOUS halloween party. She is an amazing cook and invited all of us hoodlums into her beautiful home. Thanks for such a great night.

We also had an "Office" night Halloween party. Adam was Dwight and I was Angela. We had so much fun at Amy's house.

Stephanie, Dan and Adam with the really cute mummy hots dogs

Steph with her glorious creations!

We had Halloween off, so we went up to Jacksonville and surprised the Daveline family. We were able to do trick-or-treating with Andrew and hand out candy and be with our family. It was just soooo much fun!

More visits

We got to see the beautiful Hancock family. Jen and Mark came down with their five little guys and we got to play, play, play! They certainly got tuckered out. I think they may need a vacation after their vacation. It was so great to see them and get to visit with them!

Just so happy!

I know I haven't updated in a while, but I had to just say Hooray for Chuck and Amy! They got engaged on Saturday, and I cannot tell you how happy I am for them. They are such a wonderful couple. Great people on their own and great people together. Congrats, you two! Adam and I are thrilled for you!

And then....

This is Josh and Tynan. They came down from Jacksonville to visit us and see our show. Josh and Adam have been best friends since High School and now Tynan (his beautiful wife) and I get to be friends as well. We had such a wonderful time visiting with them and they introduced us to a WONDERFUL restaraunt in Orlando that we will now take you to if you come visit us. Thanks you two!


So then we got a wonderful visit from our dear friend Kjersti! Kjersti is so much fun! We met her at the Playmill and have loved every single time we get to see her!Kjersti and Amy came and saw our show. Kjersti looks great with my blue hair and Amy is rockin' the Chaquita look.
This is Kjersti and Adam rockin' the New York "I am so over this queue" look. Hooray!

Getting to work

To get to our job in the park, we have to park in cast parking, walk through the main entrance and then through a cast entrance and then through a security booth. After that we get on these, that's right, bikes and bike around the outside of the park to the back of the stage. I know it sounds long, but the bike riding is really fun!!!!

Dory and Nemo

This is my girl Melanie! Melanie is amazingly talented and such a little spitfire! She makes a wonderful Nemo.

Mr Ray!!!!

Contrary to popular belief, Adam is wearing a lab coat, not a dress. This is just one of MANY costumes Adam wears during the 38 minute show, and doesn't he wear it well?

Our friend Amy, the Princess!

We got to see our amazing friend Amy as Belle. She was awesome. Seriously, this girl has phenomenal vocals. Plus, she is just gorgeous! Thanks Amy for inviting us and for being truly Lovely~!

A day at Disney

We started our day at Star Tours, obviously Rita was excited

The two Dory's unite!

Yeah, that's right, I got a tat. It took like 3 minutes. I don't really see why people say it's painful.

A flashback for Adam and I. We went to this restaurant on our honeymoon. Good times.

We had so much fun hanging out with Rita and seeing lots of fun things. I love living so close to so many adventures. Thanks Rita! We had so much fun with you!

Our new home

This is our kitchen.

This is our Living Room. Yes, that is my Disney Princess collection on top of the TV

Our entry way. Mostly photos and stuff

Our bedroom, notice the Nemo stuffed animals above the headboard. Yes, we are nerds

Guest room/study. If you come stay with us, this is where you will sleep. It's really pretty, so come stay!

Okay, so this is our apartment. Disney is providing housing, so all we got to do is decorate it. We had so much fun doing this. We got to buy whatever we wanted. For the first time in my married life, I have a few nice things. It's weird, I feel a little bit like an adult. Not too much, keep in mind that I play dress up with a puppet for my job, but a little bit like an adult.

I love my life

This is what I get to come home to everyday. I mean, how does it get much better than this? Life has all of these different lessons for me to learn and all of these different obstacles to try to overcome, yet when it comes down to it, this is what it's all about. My amazing husband. And let's not forget our beautiful child, Charlie!

No News is.............GOOD NEWS!

Sorry for the long break from the Internet. We don't have a good connection and it was completely gone for the past 5 days. However, it came back tonight and I am trying to play catch up. Adam and I have been blessedly busy and enjoying every minute of it.

This is me at my first FOY rehearsal. I am pretending to hold a puppet thus the weird hands.

I will post more later, but this is a quickie for now. Love you all!

Walker Family Reunion!!!

I know I am a few weeks behind, but I want to post all of the fun pictures we took in Utah. I have to tell you that I had so much fun being with my family. We went to all of the fun places that I remember from my childhood and I got to just bask in the glow of the mountains. Unfortunately, I got sick on our third day there and couldn't go out and see all of my wonderful friends, but I will see them soon!!!!! So here is a huge load of picture fun!

The Family at Nielsen's Frozen Custard

My Little Brother, Jon, and me!

Nemo Party

So before we went to Utah for a week, our great friends/family Sandee and Gary Parham threw us a "Nemo" party. They put up decorations, made a special cake, cooked amazing food and let us swim all night long. We had such a blast!!!! Thanks Parhams!

Okay, so here we are in Utah, and I forgot the cord that uploads my photos onto my computer but here are some priceless words from my adorable niece, Sammi. She is 6 years old and absolutely hilarious!!!! I don't know where she gets some of these things.

Adam: So Sammi, what do you think?
Sammi: I think that you, my friend, are classy

Amy Jo: Wow Sammi, you are strange.
Sammi: Everyone always says that I am a weirdo.
Andrea: I don't think you are weird, Sam, I think you are very smart.
Sammi: Thanks Ange, I need more respect like that.

Adam: Okay, so this does not have much power. I have the pedal down all the way.
Sammi: That's what she said.

Adorable Abby, Andrew, and Kaleb

Let me introduce you to Abby. Abby is 4 1/2 and she is our Gretel understudy. She is so cute and actually incredibly talented. She hasn't been able to do any of the shows because no one has been sick or anything. Last week we just decided to have her come backstage and play. Fun, Fun, Fun! I have worked with some the cutest co-stars EVER!!!And these are two of my adorable nephews. Andrew is two, almost three, and Kaleb is just about eight weeks. They are both such sweet boys. I am so lucky to live close to them. They are so great and smart and sweet.

Adam's Present

Adam and I have been getting around on a little 150 cc scooter for the past 10 months. It's a great way to save gas and it's kind of fun. Well, when we got the jobs at Disney Adam got to upgrade. Here is his new sweetheart. He is so cute with it and it's tons of fun to ride. He and I both wear our protective gear, full face helmets, jeans, boots, and armored jackets. But we are saving a bunch of money on gas and seeing a lot of the beautiful sights in Jacksonville.

Happy 26th Birthday Adam!

Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband! I am so glad that he is my same age now. Yes, I did marry a younger man, thank you very much! We had a lot of fun. And yes dad, Peggy made half of Adams' birthday cake without walnuts so that I could enjoy as well. We first went to a Spanish restaurant and had a big family dinner. Not as good as Los Hermanos, but I don't know if anything really will be. Then we went home and celebrated. The next day I took Adam to Ruth's Chris (his favorite restaurant). It was great to be together.

Happy Birthday!
