Mickey Mouse New Year

In succession we celebrated Christmas with the grandparents. For a week of the time we rented a condo in the crashing Orlando real estate market. What was $150 a night last year was now $75 a night this year. Epcot was spectacular Disney reality. How a working class family can budget for a week stay at Disney is nearly impossible. In hindsight, we should have gone to the Capital One bowl and watch Lloyd Carr’s last day as Michigan’s head football coach in a glorious victory over Florida. Basically a home game for Florida, Michigan was given a slim to no chance of winning.

Then it was onto Park City Utah for the kid’s snow fix. Skiing, tubing, snowmobiling and even some condo tours (free lift tickets) kept us busy for two weeks.
