Back from the "other world" GKTW
 

Cast of characters is in Avy's pretrip check out my siggy :lovestruc:thumbsup2

It was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
We got in about a hour ago the kids are wiped out and in bed already.
I want to thank all the Big Givers for making our trip even more special. :lovestruc


The big reveal :rotfl2:

We sat all the kids down as soon as Hayden got off the bus. Poor Jason and Christian were really upset they thought something had happened to Bailee (our dog) because her kennel was gone. They really thought we were going to tell them that she had died :sad1: Ella kept telling them that Bailee was with Ruth.
Ella had been home all day and knew something was up be couldn't figure it out.
Jason's school had sent home his homework for the week and I told him to hit the books so he took off and got it all done in the 90 mins before the other kids got home :scared1: I think he thought he needed it all done before school "tomorrow" :lmao:

So back to the story
I sat them all on the couch and told them we had some news for them and Ella pipes up it is a BIG GIVE guys.
I said lets all get in the van we are going to Disney in the morning and heading to the hotel tonight.
They just looked at me like I was crazy then said no really where is the Big Give. :lmao:
I think after about 50 "no really's" Dh and I said well we are going who is joining us. I don't think they really believed us till we got them in the van and were about 30 mins from home.
We tried to get the kids down but the excitement was hitting.

So the big question of the day was would "I" make it to the plane on time :eek:

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back here. I have had some really tired kids. Poor Hayden isn't do well at all with the storms. He is crying this morning because he hurts so bad.
Grandma and I have both been down with the Flu :sick:

The night at the "show and tell" according to Ella did NOT go so well.
Grandma and Grandpa didn't leave at the same time as us. So we got there and found out our rooms were not close enough to each other to divide the kids up with only DH and I.
Thankful the room we took had 4 bunkbeds, Ella just crawled into our bed.

Ella fell asleep at 8:30 the rest of the kids couldn't settle down at all. Grandma called about that time saying they were just leaving our town then because they had been looking all over for the cat which they never found (she was in the house the next morning when the house sitter checked)
So they showed up at 9:45 and took the one kid that was not asleep into their room.
I fell asleep about 10:15 and at 11:30 Ella woke up for the night. :headache:
Nothing we did got that kid back to sleep. About 1am it hits DH that he forgot to pack some of Jason's meds. So I packed Ella up and took her back home with me to get the meds. Ella was wide awake till over 1/2 way home. I got the meds and back on the road to the "show and tell" I made it back in record time by 3:30 and the wake up call came at 4.
The kids did great and got moving really well and we were out of the room by 4:30. Thankfully they sent a Van this time and we all fit in but just barely.
Make a Wish had a helper waiting for us :worship:.
Checking in was a nightmare.
Guess who is on the Terrorist Watch list. Of course it was me :rolleyes: I had to add my middle name to my ticket to get off the list :rotfl2:
Once we got on the plane the kids got to meet the pilot. He was so sweet.

We were laughing so hard about the watch list. I have a weird last night so it makes it even more funny even the lady at the airport was laughing.
The pilot was so nice he made sure everyone got a chance to sit in the copilots seat and took the time to talk to the kids.
I did really well with only a hour sleep and I didn't get to sleep at all time on the plane and we had a full day at GKTW.

Its amazing how little sleep you need the first couple days at Disney, but then reality hits hard and you have to take a good break!

It sounds like the kids liked the surprise. I'm sure they were really happy to learn the dog was fine. :)
