Did you know that you can write a letter to a Disney character and get a postcard in return? Disney World will send you an autographed postcard when you write a letter to the following address:
-Your Favorite Charaters Name Here11
Walt Disney World Communications
P.O. Box 10040
Lake Buena Vista, FL 32830-0040
The picture postcard will arrive with 4-6 weeks after you send your letter. My kids JUST love giving and receiving mail. We did send a letter to Cinderella and received a post card from all the lovely princesses
Letter Writing Tips & Ideas “How to get started”:
The letter can be about anything you want. My kids usually typically draw out a picture and scribble their names on it.
You can write repeated letters to each address.
If you have multiple children, they can each write letters. My kids mail their letters on the same day.
We wait for our postcard to arrive and then send the next letter the following day.
Writing a letter is a great skill to teach your children. By writing their favorite characters, you are teaching them how to write a letter and how the postal service works.

Making homemade Cheesy Vegetable Chowderdoesn’t need to be complicated. After all, who wants to spend all day in the kitchen cooking. I know I sure don’t. You are going to want to try this delicious one-pot Cheesy Vegetable Chowder, an easy and light dish. Perfect to have in the summer, fall or winter time.
My husband and kids are BIG soup eaters. I have learned to make lots of yummy soups in the winter time, but now I get requests for soup even in the hottest of summer days. I love this recipe simply for many reasons, (one) it is delicious and (two) that you are not in the kitchen all day making it (I know… I am repeating myself, but it is true).
This chowder will feed our family of four and then some. I enjoy making double batches of food and freezing the rest for a later meal. Having a second meal in the freezer waiting for me to defrost instead of make from scratch on a busy day is a Win/WIN! If you are a freezer meal fanatic like myself you are going to want to get your hands of these Jokari Hands-Free Baggy Rack Storage Bag Holders. Believe me, this will make prep work a ton easier.

Add chicken broth and potatoes, bring to a boil, and cook until potatoes are tender. Mix flour with water, add, and simmer until soup is slightly thickened.
Add milk and broccoli and cook until broccoli is just tender and soup is heated through. Stir in cheese, allow to melt, and serve.

You can make it as thick as you’d like, or a little bit runny if that’s how you prefer your soup. It is all about adding in a little more shredded cheese. Below you will find my family’s recipe.
