Loving My Disney Dad

dad 4

By Frances

As many people that read this blog, I love Disney but I love my family more 🙂 When family time and Disney time collide… well there isn’t much that is better than that. After a long struggle with COPD/Chronic Bronchitis/Emphysema, my dad (Randy Hawkins) went to Heaven on February 7, 2013.  He always made Valentine’s Day special for me. He always had a box of chocolates or flowers waiting for me when I woke up. When I was in high school he brought balloons and flowers to the school for me to carry around.

My dad had two Disney dreams in recent years. The first was to see the Atlanta Braves at Spring Training & the second was to see Disney through my Autistic son’s eyes.

Please enjoy some of the most special picture to me of my dad & his last two trips to Disney.

Loving our Disney Pets

By Frances

Our pets are some of the most vital parts of our daily lives. Their unconditional love is part of today’s month of Love on Mouze Kateerz. Please enjoy pictures of ours and our readers beloved Disney inspired pets.

Mufasa

Please meet Mufasa. He is our ever so loving cat named after the Lion King. We adopted him from our neighbor a couple of months back and he was already named Mufasa so we kept it. He came from a litter of kittens. His brothers and sisters are: Pumba, Simba, Ed, Scar, Nalah & Raffaki.~ Frances

Julie Ann Gus Gus

Please meet Gus Gus – named after Gus in Cinderella. He is a rat terrier and when he was a baby he look like a fat little mouse 🙂 ~ Julie Ann

cat

Please say hello to our cat named Luke Skywalker.  Our son, 7,  picked out the name.  Luke will
turn 2 in April.  I wanted to name him Yoda but I gave into Luke.  We would like to get another
cat and either have Darth or Leia.  ~ Jennifer D.

Here is our “Princess” Belle.  We had lost our kitty in July of 2012 after having him for 16 years.  He was our childrens(10 and 7) first loss of a pet.  They kept asking for a new pet ever since.  My husband and I kept saying maybe in the Spring we would think about it.  In late September Belle started showing up on our deck here and there, then everyday sleeping on our patio chairs.  We started feeding her because the weather was getting cold.  I called the Human Society to see if they could find out if she belonged to someone.  They called me back that afternoon, and she was thrown out by her current family because they didn’t want her.  She is a year and a half, de-clawed and fixed.  Just thrown out because she didn’t fit in there life anymore!!!  She pulled on all of our heartstrings and now is part of our family!!  She is now the Princess of our house and rules the roost!   We love her very much.
Thanks!!

I don’t have a Disney dog by name.  We adopted Liam after he was nearly a year old from a New York Humane Society.  He was not named after any Disney characters and seldom even rocks Disney accessories but one Christmas I managed to get him to slip on his Mickey Mouse ears.  He does enjoy watching Disney movies with me, particularly Lady and the Tramp and for some reason he really likes animation styles like Nightmare Before Christmas.  He has enjoyed many toys and treats from my husband and my adventures in the parks including a “Pitch a Stitch” frisbee and Mickey Tire.  I would send pics but those toys have since been destroyed beyond recognition. lol.

Loving My Dreams of Disney

Mike

By Frances

When I started the journey of having my own blog, there are two people that were very instrumental in helping me. Today is the birthday of one of them. His name is Mike Ellis and he is the editor of My Dreams of Disney. He is truly one of the most caring men that I know. He helped me with more than just the transfer of the site. He talked to me for almost two hours teaching me how to use wordpress. All I have to do is send a message to me and he is always there to help in any way that he can. Please stop my his facebook page and his blog. He’s an amazing man. HAPPY 29TH Again Birthday Mike!

Fantasyland dumbo

Hi Mouze Readers!!

My name is Teresa Scavette and I am proud to be among such an amazing group of Mouzie’s!!!!

I live in New Jersey and am an avid Disney fan. I’ve been to WDW 74 times and have taken 4 Disney cruises and am happy to say was able to visit the west coast and enjoyed Disneyland!!

I like to write about the resorts that I’ve had the pleasure of exploring and enjoyed throughout the years. With so many trips under my belt I think I’ve stayed in most all of them – each one unique to itself!!!

I work with my husband Dan in our drapery manufacturing business here in NJ. I love to sew and so enjoy creating beautiful window treatments for our wonderful customers.

I’m a mother, grandmother and fairy Godmother too!!! My new love is our little yorkie poo named Sookie – she is full of energy and love!!

Crafting and travel are hobbies of mine and of course, my favorite vacation spot is Disney World!! I find something new and magical with each trip. Love my countdowns to Disney and all of the magical memories from trips gone by.

Check out my resort blogs on Mouze Kateerz and – oh yes…… to coin my favorite Disney phrase..”Have A Magical Day”!!!!!!
