Alexandra, my loving wife, gave me the best birthday gift on Nov. 30th, 2010 when she took me to Disney World for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I had one of the most memorable birthdays yet as we indulged in limitless hot cocoa, sugar cookies, parades, fireworks, Mickey Mouse and the ever amazing Magic Kingdom attractions. I love my wife!

As a part of Walt Disney World’s “Summer Nightastic” going on now at Magic Kingdom, they have brought bac “k the beloved Main Street Electrical Parade and “Nightastic” perimeter fireworks for the Summer 2010 season. If you’re in Orlando for Summer 2010, prepare for a true blast from Disney past!
Each year I compose a video that showcases the highlights of my life of the previous year. This is my fourth year doing it, and I’m proud to bring you the 2009 edition of my “Year in Review.” 2009 was jam packed with non stop fun, friends, travel and just blessings from every corner. The music used in this are as follows: Mike Oldfield – Angelique, Bubba Ho-Tep OST (Brian Tyler) – The King, Bubba Ho-Tep OST (Brian Tyler) – Bubba’s Lament, Ryan Farish – Open Sky, Ryan Farish – Sunshine, Ryan Farish – Learning To Fly, Ryan Farish – Wonderfall.
Alex and I decided to celebrate this New Year’s in true Disney fashion at the Magic Kingdom this year. We had Mickey, Minnie and Goofy counting down to 2010 as fireworks illuminated the sky over Orlando, FL. It was truly an awesome spectacle.
It’s probably my favorite time of year, the Christmas Season. There’s so many little things to look forward to that as a child I never really paid much attention. When you’re a kid, all you think about is toys, video games and money, it’s true! When you get older, say 20 or so, these needs and wants then maturely change into more real material things like clothes, shoes, DVD’s and gift cards to Outback Steakhouse, haha. I’ve turned 30 this year, and I’ve found myself doing so many new and exciting things that I’ve never even had the chance to do back home Kentucky. Living in Orlando has it’s benefits, especially around the Holidays because the theme parks go all out for Christmas. It’s almost like a competitive edge in the theme park capitol of the world, who can have the best Christmas bash, and who can make you go “Ohhhh & Ahhhhh” the best.
But seriously, now that I’ve turned 30, Christmas has kind of taken on a different meaning. I find myself giving more to others, not just material things, but things like mutual support, comfort and caring. I’m not sure where all this came from within me, but I have a general idea who is funneling all this good energy my way, hehe. I’ve caught myself all Holiday Season really going out of my way for people to make sure they are okay, and they are happy. Even though I can’t change a person’s lifestyle and take them from miserable to bliss within 24 hours, I can offer them the one thing that Christ offered to all his disciples and followers, love. Love is a captivating thing when you look at it closely, because it can translate into all the situations you face in life. Love your enemy. Love your neighbor. Love you wife. Love you pet. Love you parents. Love you grandparents (if you are still blessed to have them in your life). Love your life that you’re blessed to wake up and walk out of bed each and every morning without any setbacks. Did I lose you on that one? Try visiting a nursing home sometime, you’ll get a good dose of reality and you’ll understand what I’m talking about. But most importantly, the one thing I’ve found to keep me sane in times of storms, is the Love I have for Jesus Christ, and the faith I have to believe in Him. There is nothing more powerful and serene than the calming love of the Lord.
So, has Joe been taking advantage of his theme park home in Orlando this Holiday Season? OF COURSE! Here’s some pictures of me and my lovely wife to be at Disney, Universal and beyond this Christmas Season.
