okay - how bored are we!!

I read it and changed it back to unread - what happened?

See, this is the fun I miss when I go to bed early! This experiment would have been right up my alley. :rotfl:

Plus, it would have been an excuse for someone to send me a PM. My box is never full. :rotfl:

Okay does anybody else know the movie titled "Elmo Saves Christmas?" In the movie Elmo has a wish and he asks for Christmas to be everyday...

Well, this is what the loving nature of this thread has been to me. Christmas everyday... This week I got two more boxes with ornaments. Lovely ornaments from our Queen Kate and lovely ornaments from Amy and Kevin. :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes

Thank you seems like such a small bit of gratitude, but it's all I've got. So thank you... I will think of all of the special DDAs when I put my tree up next year. For right now, I am cherishing each ornament as I pack them away. :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes :goodvibes :grouphug: :grouphug:

You're welcome Steffy! Again, I'm sorry that it took me until after Christmas to get to the post office.

We might start taking down our two trees and all the decor today. Kevin is actually at Office Depot right now. He claims it's a new year, so we have to get organized. :p

Hello all. :wave: I have a question regarding making t-shirts. I have seen some of the designs that you all have made, and think they are amazing!

I have looked at Kate's faq thread, but still have one question. Do you print the designs that you have from the ones listed on your photobucket accounts?

I am going to order the dark transfer paper from ebay, and was wondering about how to print it.

I plan on surprising the whole family with these shirts. I figure if you can't act like a kid at disney, then, where can you?

BTW I think you guys are a hoot!.. I sometimes spit diet coke at my computer screen reading your posts.

Sorry to have been lurking for so long. But what is a shy guy supposed to do? LOL.
welcome we promise not to bite. :rotfl2:
seriously welcome I am shy to in person but on here i dont feel i will get critized for anything I say (Type).

I do remember those days! In fact, when we were first married we only lived 3 hours from Vegas, so we used to do weekends in Vegas quite frequently. Now, I'm lucky if I can outlast the kids!

I'm hoping it doesn't rain for you! It's pouring here, so I'll pray that it stays here in Utah and doesn't affect you at all!
oh please send the rain here. They banned all fireworks no new years eve. that included sparklers. WE are in desperate need of rain.

Sorry - I'm on a posting frenzy - making up for lost time I guess! :rolleyes1

If anyone has any advice/tips for DL - I would really appreciate them! (Glynis - your PM's have been invaluable - THANK YOU!! And, I hope to return the favor when you're ready to head to WDW!)

We are staying for 3 nights at the Disneyland Hotel next week, and going to DL/DCA Thursday-Saturday. I've only been to DL once (about 18 years ago! :earseek: ), and DH has never been.

I have done very little planning for this trip, and am beginning to panic! DH tells me to not stress - if we can do WDW, surely we can conquer DL - but I'm an obsessive-compulsive trip planner, and this is abnormal. I'm freaking myself out! :faint:

My biggest suggestion is to get there early, hit all the FL rides first, especially those without fast pass, and when it starts getting crowded, head over to DCA. Also, I'd do Disneyland on Thursday as it will get more and more crowded as the weekend approaches.

Just have a wonderful time, and don't go expecting that you have to do everything WDW style. You won't have anywhere near the walking that you do in WDW, so you can just enjoy the whole experience. Soak up the atmosphere, and remember Walt walked all over the park, so you literally are walking in his footsteps. Take some time to admire Snow White's Grotto. It is such a beautiful spot.

I can't wait to hear about your trip. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

and that is it in the last two years for our movie theatre history -

Just curious, can you tape 2 programs at the same time...and watch the third-it has to be something you've previously taped, not live tv (hope that makes sense) We are able to on our DVR...
I tried this this morning and we are able to watch a previously recorded show while taping on 2 different channels. Our box is a Motorola too, so maybe we have the same one. The only problem we've had is when our electricity goes out it still shows all of the recordings that are set, but doesn't record. The first time it happened was after Hurricane Katrina and when I called in the guy told me I'd have to exchange the box - it was fried. I undo everything, drive 20 miles (each way) and exchange the box. Our electricity went out for a minute a few weeks ago, and the same thing happens with the box. I called the cable company and started fussing at the guy, telling him I wasn't going to keep exchanging the box every few months and he said just unplug it for 5 seconds. Worked like a charm :rotfl:

Julia & Nick's mom, I think it was you who made the name shirt with the characters in them, loved them and of course my name was there, would love to have the rest of the families names so we could all wear them together, were they difficult to do, I think you posted the font but if you remember off hand can you let me know and I will give them a whirl.

DH bought and loaded spintshop deluxe 21 for me about 5 weeks ago so now I will have something to use it for, would it work well for these designs??

you might remember our before pictures of our bedroom:

and here is the artwork Amy tipped you off about
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b60/wdwoct2005/2005xmas001.jpg

and this is what we spent our day doing: we had intended to paint the wall a green but I thought the mocha color seemed much richer and I am so happy with that decision!!!
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b60/wdwoct2005/2005xmas003.jpg
we still have to hang the second curtain (need to put the rods back up) and I need to buy sheers to put behind them
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b60/wdwoct2005/2005xmas004.jpg
my parents bought us the comforter for Christmas
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b60/wdwoct2005/2005xmas005.jpg
the wall extends into our bathroom and we got a new shower curtain and towels
http://i17.photobucket.com/albums/b60/wdwoct2005/2005xmas006.jpg

poor little Julia came home and told us she thought we were going to frame her artwork and couldn't believe we painted over it :rotfl:

I'd gladly send it your way if I could! It's been doing a sleety, rain/snow mix since Friday afternoon. It's really yucky. The kids are here on their last day of winter break, and they can't go outside to play because it's so nasty and cold!

You guys are so motivated, I bought paint about 3 months ago to paint DD wall behind her bed blue and it is still sitting, now we are getting quotes to paint the entire inside of the house as there are some places that are way to high even with DH's extention ladders and besides we are both so unmotivated and DH pays everyone to do everything for him so he can relax when he gets home.

We took our 8 year old and our 6 year old on Friday morning. We loved it! We read it as a family last year, so everyone knew the story. We didn't take the 3 year old twins, as they have a hard time sitting still through a movie, and I wanted to be able to enjoy a movie for once.

I can't say enough good things about this movie! I can't wait to own it! I hope that they continue to make all the rest of the books!

It's probably too late, but we went a couple of days ago, and my 6 year old ds made it through with no problems. Your mileage may vary. :goodvibes

Seriously, he has played the game on the computer, so he knew a little of what to expect. He has done movies well for a long time, too.

Well, it's 11:00 p.m. here in Utah, so I still have another hour to go. All 4 kids are in bed and 3 of them are asleep. Just waiting on DD and then I can play Baby New Year and go to bed. I'm really quite excited about their gifts this year. I was really sneaky in Disneyland in September and got them all stuffed Disney characters that they wanted but didn't have enough money of their own to buy. DD #1 is getting a classic stuffed Mickey, DS is getting a Jedi Mickey, DD #2 is getting a classic Goofy, and DD #3 is getting the 50th anniversary Princess Minnie. I can't wait to see their faces in the morning. I can't believe I didn't cave in and give them to the kids right away.

I sure wish we had a digital camera so I could share some pics with you all, but it was stolen in the Chicago airport on one of DH's business trips. That's the last time I let him take the camera. Until we get some more money, a camera is low on our list of priorities. Did I mention that our large freezer just died? Well, it did. It's only 7 years old, but it died. Not only that, but it was freshly stocked with the deer DH hunted last Fall. He's pretty devastated about all the meat that spoiled. Me, not so much. I'm not that into venison. However, it was meat that we would have used. Oh well, no use crying over spoilt meat, right? Next purchase for us? A new freezer!

Happy New Year everyone! I'm glad that 2006 is treating you all well!

then I must be pathetic!!! The last movie we saw in a theatre was Madagascar three weeks ago at the dollar theatre and before that would have been robots in April and before that Nemo - which I saw the week before Nick was born - oh I did go to see how to lose a guy in 10 days with my girlfriends

and that is it in the last two years for our movie theatre history -
I am the same way....unless it is a PG movie, I don't see it.

We took our 8 year old and our 6 year old on Friday morning. We loved it! We read it as a family last year, so everyone knew the story. We didn't take the 3 year old twins, as they have a hard time sitting still through a movie, and I wanted to be able to enjoy a movie for once.

I can't say enough good things about this movie! I can't wait to own it! I hope that they continue to make all the rest of the books!
Then we better not go...Alyssa is only 3!

Does anyone else have this problem....a child that cannot play by themselves, or use their imagination and play with toys? I love my son dearly but sometimes it drives me nuts that he has to constanly be entertained. If it isn't a video or computer game, it doesn't get played with. He just had a birthday, plus Christmas, and got power ranger figures and cars and stuff, and they sit there. It's always "mommy can we do this or mommy can we do that". I don't know if it is a first-born thing (always had my attention) or a boy thing, a combo, or not related at all. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Brenda -- we went to the parade last year when Texas played in the Rose Bowl, and they told us that the town of Pasadena had made a pact with God that they wouldn't hold the parade when the 1st fell on Sunday (so that people would go to Church instead of skipping for the parade), if he wouldn't let it rain on their parades. I think this year's parade is either the first or second time it has rained!!

I have three boys and my first born used to do the same thing. My older two are 17 months apart but the oldest one always wanted MY attention. So not sure if it is first born or a boy thing. When you figure it out let me know. :)

Tammi -- my oldest son is that same way. He will play computer games or video games by himself, but needs someone else around to play with his trains, Power Rangers stuff or transformers. My son is ADHD -- off the charts when he was tested. The doctor told us that the video games/computer games are active, always moving and that keeps his interest. The other things require attention and more concentration so Andrew isn't usually as interested in those unless someone is with him. Maybe your son is similar -- not the ADHD part -- in that he loses interest faster?

My daughter does the same thing. Only she wants me to read her books ALL the time. I really don't mind, though, because at 3 she knows all her letters and sounds and can read some small words.

The thing that gets me is... why did I start using funny voices for all the characters in the books? Now, I can't read any of her books without using weird voices, or she gets mad and says I am not doing it right.

Ummm....Not a problem... unless we're in the waiting room at the drs. office.

Tammi -

Julia can get lost for hours in her imagination -

Nick has a shorter time span but can do it

maybe it is a first born boy thing :rotfl:

Nancy's DS who is her oldest was like this - he always wanted someone in the room with him - even if you weren't playing with him - he liked to know someone was there - I think he has outgrown that now - I just remember he always wanted me to be in the same room as him - maybe that was b/c he loves me so much!!!!

I do think that Nick would have this problem if he didn't have his older sister to entertain him

So. While I was in my "creative mood" I did this.

I think it was Kate who coined the phrase "Belle Moment" and I thought that this picture seemed appropriate for thank you notes.

My DS just turned 8 and often plays on his own even when there are other kids, if they are too wild he will go play on his own, he is always tying stuff to the doors, bunkbeds and ****y trapping his room etc. He has an older sister who being a tween is not into playing with him very often any more.

Hi Amy.

Maybe we should just PM each other. Mine rarely has messages in it too!

You're so sweet Tammi! :goodvibes

I think it's probably good that you decided not to take Alyssa to see Narnia. From what I understand (and from what I remember from reading the book), there are some pretty intense scenes.

And, we're working on trying to get (our) Alyssa to play independently. She got so many toys for Christmas!!! :earseek: Of course, her favorite activity right now is to torment both cats and chase them all over the house. :rolleyes: Good luck with Nicholas.

But, I am lucky...Kevin did take me to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for our anniversary this past July.

Terry -

those are really cute and definately something they have never received before

we give cards and the CMs always seem happy to get them

But remember - if you really have a true Belle moment - out of the way awesome and amazing once in a lifetime moment - write a letter to disney - this info is looked at when they talk about promotions, reviews raises, etc


Kate,
That is just what I did when Mario fixed my watch by giving me a new band. I made sure we told his manager and also sent an e-mail thanking them all for a truly pixie dust moment. Steffy will tell you that I was crying while he worked on the watch and then again telling his manager all about it.

Fanny, our Mousekeeper, was showing us all of her things she has kept for years from people thanking her. She had a whole scrapbook. She even had a write up in a local newspaper.

so when you send a PM - you can choose to have the pm confirmed - then when it is read - you can tell if the person got it or not

after you read a pm it shows to them as confirmed

you can - after reading a PM - go back in and change it to unread - you do this by clicking on the box you would use to delete and then scrolling to the bottom where the delete option is - one of the options is mark as unread - then your pm box acts like you have never read it - and your little message box at the top says you have 1 new message even though you have read it

but this does not change the status of your pm to the original sender -

when dawn sent me the pm last night - i read it and changed it to unread - but to her it still showed that I had read it -

so you can change it in your message but not in the original senders mailbox - it is like a quote - you can change your original message but once you have been quoted - you can't change their message

does that make sense?!?!? so if someone said the pm had not been read - that means their confirmation status is unread -

so I guess the question you and Dawn are asking - is how can you change the confirmed status not the read status - I am stumped on this one!!!!!

I've been online today looking for stuff to do. Any suggestions? It really seems like there are a lot of areas to just go and walk around. I don't think we'll do any tours, etc (ie historical tours).

Yeah. The way our trip is working out this time, we'll actually be in Baltimore for several days. We get in on Friday night (from the other cities) and his interview isn't until Tuesday! I've been online today looking for stuff to do. Any suggestions? It really seems like there are a lot of areas to just go and walk around. I don't think we'll do any tours, etc (ie historical tours). We really want to get a feel for living there more than touring there.
The only thing I know about in Baltimore is the Inner Harbor area and the Baltimore Aquarium. You are about 30-45 minutes from DC, and pretty close to Annopolis too, I believe. Other than tourist-y kinda things, I can't help you.

jennifer - I would definately consider taking a side trip to DC or Gettysburg

Definately go check out the inner harbor and the aquarium - with it being winter - I don't know what else to suggest there

I love DC and Gettysburg!!!

Obviously we don't. We take them down when Kevin says it's time. He's off today and he doesn't want to worry about it this week, I guess.

I'm lucky he's so helpful. Some other husbands might just say, "You're a SAHM, you do it yourself!" Of course, Kevin knows better than to say that to me. :rotfl:

Jennifer,
Baltimore is really a neat place to visit. Steffy and I are about an hour and half from there. There is the inner harbor which has a lot to see. If you like ribs, there is a place off Padonia Rd exit, I think on York Rd called Corner Stable. It looks like not much from the outside but the ribs are best ever. When my one sister (tinker1bell's sister) came to visit, we stopped there coming from the airport and also when I took her back :rotfl:

Deb, I had posted this on the Weight loss site. But this might help for those who have not looked at that site and may also help to differ your water bottle from the others. I cut up slices of oranges, lemons and some limes and put them on a plate and froze them. When frozen, store them in baggies and when getting my water ready for work, I put one of them in my water bottle with ice and it is just enough flavor for the day.

That is a great idea. I'm on low carb so the fruit slices don't work for me as they have carbs. I buy the flavored spring water sweetened with
Splenda. There are actually lots of different brands out there and they taste so good. You don't even realize your drinking water.

and that is it in the last two years for our movie theatre history -

Years ago I worked at a movie theater and saw everything that came out. It was free. What a great job for a teen. Last year the boys gave me $20 in movie gift certificate. I finally gave them to my dad to take the boys to something cause I never find time to go. I don't even remember the last movie I saw. Pitiful Huh?

We have been on 3 Carnival cruises and 3 Princess cruises, we went on Carnival this last spring break and had a great time, we were on the Glory out of PC but decided that if we weren't doing DCL, Princess will be our line of choice, we have a B2B booked on Princess for September, we really enjoyed our 3 Carnival but they are not as nice as Princess with a more rowdy crowd.
The shows on Carnival and Princess were both great, both have casino and lots of things going on.

Princess only do 7 night as there shortest and leave from FL.

We were going to try RCCL but my sister went on that with her kids and DH and they thought the kids would skate and rock climb but the lines were always so long they never got to do it all week. That was her first cruise and she never got hooked so we decided to stick to what we know but we have heard good about them.

This is just our opinion but remember ' a bad day at sea is better than a good day at work'. :rotfl2:

I have been on both Norwegian and Carnival. Norwegian was great, however it's been about 15 yrs., since and I don't know what they are like now. I will NEVER do another Carnival cruise again. Inexpensive, yes, but it shows. They have a GREAT kids club however, but because of that there are a LOT of kids. I found the older ones to be running around all over the place, unsupervised. To each his own, but I didn't like Carnival.

My parents have done Royal Caribbean a few times, and love that line. Quite a few of my friends have too. If we were to do another, I think we would do Royal.

Royal caribbean!!! Ive cruise 2 times with them and am going again on Sunday...I dont have experience with the kids clubs, but i saw a ton of kids going in and out all the time and they seemed to be having fun..
definitely has a casino--i was in there a few times1

Ok, regarding the DC meet in July. Everyone who is SERIOUSLY interested, PM me for how many nights you would need. Can we do 2 of us to a room or do you want your own room? Closing date on this will be a week from today, 1/9, then I will call and make ressies. Does this sound good to everyone???

I think I will start a thread on this too, so no one misses it.

it was pretty much unanimous

if you would like to try your hand at it for a day - go for it

the requirements are:
knowing everyone's names and posting habits
pming when someone hasn't posted for a while
computer help
putting out fires
designing t-shirts

and your normal method of design - calling your younger sister - won't work for this!!! :rotfl2:

I'm around every now and again- mostly reading and trying to get through the dark depressing days in Portland Oregon. I hate rain and gray! Snow is so much better. At least after the snow is done, the sun comes out and it makes everything brighter. Thansk for thinking about me- maybe I'll come and gather some sunshine from my old friends!
This is what I miss most about Ia. since we moved here. DH is glad not to have to shovel snow all winter but I think it's way prettier than this dreary rain. I'm always in a funk winters out here. :guilty:

We have been on 3 Carnival cruises and 3 Princess cruises, we went on Carnival this last spring break and had a great time, we were on the Glory out of PC but decided that if we weren't doing DCL, Princess will be our line of choice, we have a B2B booked on Princess for September, we really enjoyed our 3 Carnival but they are not as nice as Princess with a more rowdy crowd.
The shows on Carnival and Princess were both great, both have casino and lots of things going on.

Princess only do 7 night as there shortest and leave from FL.

We were going to try RCCL but my sister went on that with her kids and DH and they thought the kids would skate and rock climb but the lines were always so long they never got to do it all week. That was her first cruise and she never got hooked so we decided to stick to what we know but we have heard good about them.

This is just our opinion but remember ' a bad day at sea is better than a good day at work'. :rotfl2:

Thanks. So I have a vote for Princess, two for Royal Caribbean and a definate no to carnival. Any more cruisers out there.

I have been on 6 Celebrity cruises, 1 Royal Caribbean and 1 Holland America Line. I will never sail Holland American again. The Royal Caribbean was very good and had a lot of kids' activities (I had my grandchildren with me on that trip). My favorite line, obviously, is Celebrity, but I have had no experience with their kids' programs. I have heard, however, that during normal school vacations when many children are likely to cruise, their program is great.

Try doing research on cruisecritic.com. Great site for cruisers.

I think a PM from you would be very thoughtful, Beth. Marti needs to know how much we all miss her (I tell her every day! :goodvibes )

Oh, and I believe earlier you asked about recaps...I'm only good at cutting and pasting recap lists that others have created, but for some reason, I always seem to get credit for them, even when I admit I didn't write the recap list. :rotfl: (does that even make sense?!!)

WAY back in 87' DH and I went on NCL on the Norway. It was a Big Band themed cruise but I could see that there was a lot for kids to do. One night there was a costume party and families dressed up for it.
I was in heaven because we saw Tony Bennet perform. And Ruby Keeler from the original 42nd Street came out after the show to wave hi. I think they still do some themed cruises. You could watch TV that night to see what all had happened that day. I really want to do a cruise in 07'

Deb -- We took the kids on a 4 day RCCL cruise on my company retreat. It was their first cruise and they had a great time! They went on scavenger hunts and did lots of cool things. I've been on two other RCCL cruises, without kids, and they were great, too. If we weren't doing the Magic later this summer, we would either do a RCCL, or a cruise on one of the Princess ships. My parents cruise on Princess at least once a year. The next one they are doing takes them through Africa. I'm green with envy!!

Not that we would never go on Carnival again, if the ports and dates suited us we would but if it compared to Princess we would choose PCL unless it was a huge price difference not just a couple of hundred.

Personally I would love to do a Disney cruise, but my Dad really wants to do something less kiddie. He says our big family vacations always revolve around the kids (duh) I've told him that things won't be changing in that department for at least 15 years and I could have grandkids by then. I thought a non Disney cruise followed by WDW would be a nice compromise. Besides if I buy into DVC I'll have some points to use :cool1:
