Smile And THAT's when I threw up on my grandmother. p.17: We're back!

Oh my gosh! I can hardly believe it, but it's official: We are going to the World in May '08! The flights & hotel are reserved, I am in high control-freak mode, and we are gettin' our Mickey on!

Who are "we," exactly? Well, let me introduce you!

Me, Mommy, 39-- 5 WDW trips to date--while researching my son's ADD symptoms a few months back, I realized that I, too have ADD! It came as a shock to no one but me.... I'm currently going through diagnosis for MS, so this trip is extra-special to me, because I've decided that NOW is the time to start living life to the fullest. Being the home schooling mom of 4 beautiful kiddos, I want them to have plenty of memories of Mommy being right in the middle of the action with them!

DH--"the Daddy," (Gus) 41 going on 9--3 WDW trips to date-- what can I say about the Daddy? I'm blessed! "Whatever you want to do, honey," is his motto. He loves Disney World, but is completely incapable of becoming excited, interested, or otherwise involved with the planning of any event taking place more than a week away. Which means, in practical terms, that I have free reign to plan this trip for the next 6 months and 2 days, and then suddenly he is going to develop opinions. The corrolary to this condition is that he will remember none of what I have told him during the interim, so I will have 1 week to fill him in on what's been going on for the last 6 months. But he has really cute knees, so I give him a lot of leeway!

DD12--"anxiety girl" (Riley)-- 2 WDW trips to date--She is my right-hand girl, my top general! When she's out of the battle, things do not run smoothly. But to go with all the responsibility she takes on, she tends to stress a little. And yell. I'm trying to help her take life a little less seriously. If you ask me, the girl needs a serious dose of Disney World!!! She has been twice before, at 3yrs. and 7 yrs. She is a Space Mountain fiend and rode about 12 times on her last trip.

DS8--"the explorer"(Ethan)-- 2nd trip--Sweetest little guy on the planet! Gives great hugs. But he's definitely all boy. Loves dirt, bugs, skeletons, pirates, vikings, all that cool stuff. He tends to be the source of DD12's frustration. Nothing is simple with this one! He can be a little spacey, but he has an amazing imagination. Wants to be an explorer/filmmaker/missionary when he grows up.

DD4--"35 pounds of sunshine and a rainbow in a bottle" (Ramie)--but as DD12 points out, too much sunshine can be deadly! 1st trip! This little one is positively luminescent! She wakes up all twinkly and sparkly, and you could lose a backhoe in her dimples. She has a quick temper, but she gets over it in a snap. She's just one of those people who always tend toward happiness. She has an imaginary friend named John (we were afraid John was gone forever at one point, after a nasty incident in which the SugarMan shot him with his weather gun, but evidently he's fine), and has a crazy crush on Eragon and also on Peter Pan.

DS2-- "the entertainer" (Mason)-- 1st trip!--This was our "SURPRISE!" baby. I found out I was pregnant on the day we moved into the new house we had just built for our family of 5. Ha! But he has been a true and unexpected joy. He has Down syndrome, and has inspired us to start a non-profit to educate expectant parents. He has developed a particular affinity for climbing, which is going to drive his poor old mommy crazy! I will scold him for something, and for a minute that little lip will stick out and he'll start to look teary, then he'lll bust out with this huge smile--now, how do I stand a chance against that?

DM--"Nana"--My mommy's coming with us! Yea! She offered to come so that we'd have help with DS2. She hasn't been to WDW in over 30 years, when I was 3 or 4 and we went right after WDW opened. My mom is the best. Slightly passive-agressive, but not in a bad way. She is always there for me, and has pulled me through more crises than I can count. I really want this trip to be special for her. I've been told I'm a cattle driver once we get onto Disney property (I don't see it at all...), but I have to slow it down a little for mom. In the tradition of Dolly Parton in Steel Magnolias, my mother hasn't left the house without lycra on her thighs since....well, ever. She also won't wear short sleeves. It will be interesting to see how long that lasts once we hit the parks. Although, we are from Texas, but I have to say Florida humidity kicks my patootie!

Cuz--Cecile, (pronounced Cess'-i-lee) 30ish??? Cec has been to WDW a couple of times before, but it's been a while. She's been wanting to go again, but it hasn't worked out. When my aunt was here for DD4's b'day last weekend, I told her "Tell Cec to come with us!" And she did...and she is!!! I'm so excited! Growing up, even though we lived only a couple of miles apart, we really only got together on Christmas and a birthday here or there, but I love her! She's really cute and funny, and she is so good with the kids. They are excited that she's coming. Cecile has OCD, so she's the only person I can trust to take them to the bathroom and be as germaphobic as I am!

So, there's my cast of characters. Now, here's my plan (but remember, I'm ADD, so this plan is destined to unravel at some point. Let's see how long I can keep it up. For fun, you could take bets on how many posts it takes before I completely abandon it):

While I'm spilling the details about my plans for this trip, which, BTW, are fabulous, I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and share with you some of the highlights of my past WDW trips (oh yes, that title isn't just some cheap gimmick to get you to read my pre-trippie). It will give you an idea of why WDW is so very, very special for me, and why I get so emotional about planning a WDW trip. And I'll enjoy it, too, which is what really matters....

I've heard the Flower and Garden Show is really beautiful, and that it doesn't really affect the crowd level--which is great ! I'm looking forward to the World Showcase most of all....for reasons I'll reveal a little later (if I stick to this plan o' mine !)...

Where's my ticker???

Okay, I got a new ticker since I officially have flight & room ressies.
I assumed that once I updated my siggie, it would apply the ticker to my old posts, but it doesn't look like it did...so let's see if it works this time

help me Rhonda!

Okay, technically this is a question pertaining to my trip planning:

I need to close my thread over on the DVC points renting board.
How????? It says to edit my title---how??? and will editing my title take care of it, or is there a magic "closed" icon somewhere???

Help!

Waaaaay overslept this morning (as usual), drastically cutting into my DIS time today. I have a relatively short "to do" list though...let me see, fix breakfast, 10:00 physical therapy appt. for Mason, get to the lab for a blood draw, drive thru somewhere because I haven't made it to the grocery store in over a week and the kids are tired of eating lunch meat w/ no bread, make at least a cursory run thru the grocery store to pick up something for dinner, rush home to put Mason down for nap, then drive back across town for Ramie's dance class. A full day's worth of home school has to fit in there somewhere, but after that I should be able to post another installment!

Oh I wish I could just and get this kitchen clean and my done....

What's in my closet...just in time for Halloween!



As promised, it's time for a trip into my closet!
What does my closet have to do with planning a trip to WDW, you ask? (You didn't ask? Well, you should have. I mean, it's a perfectly good question.). I'll tell you...

Way back in the days when we just had a couple of kids and believed highly in the power of planning , we decided we would go back to Disney World every 4 years. So we took Riley when she was 3 (and I was 7 months pregnant), and 4 years later we went again when Ethan was 3 and Riley was 7. Shortly after that we got pregnant again--right on schedule--and so we just assumed we would go back when the new baby was 3, Ethan 7, and Riley 11.

But God had other ideas....

Shortly after Ramie's first birthday, and one week before Christmas, I'm on my to pick up the last of our boxes to be moved to our brand new house--the house Mommy spent 9 months (ironic--remember that) as general contractor, driving across counties to meet with subcontractors and pick out fixtures, months of laying tile myself, painting right alongside DH, finishing cabinets, you name it--if you didn't need a license to do it, we did it. So I'm picking up the last of the boxes from our TQ(temporary quarters), and I am just rejoicing in the fact that we will have this wonderful 4 bedroom home, where everybody gets their own room and there will be no crib in mommy's room anymore when --what's today's date? The 17th? OHMYSTINKINGGOODNESSYOUSOCANNOTBESERIOUS!!!:scared 1:
I detoured into Walgreens on the way to the apartment, and --ohyesIamsoserious!!! There was no denying that second purple line!!! That purple line that meant my sleepless nights were far from over, and that there would indeed be another crib in my room for a while!

Now, I am so happy that God decided to hijack my family planning on this one . Having 4 kiddos is amazing, even though I spend most of my waking hours nearly comatose. But the fact of the matter is it did mess up our date with the Mouse. So Ramie turned 3, and with a 1 year old infant w/ Down syndrome whose needs were really still more like that of a 4 or 5 month old, it was apparent that our trip would be postponed.

Well, months passed, and Mason has grown and matured, and the time came that we finally decided, in the words of the wise Rafiki, "It is time!" So we sat down and hammered out a date. Actually, I sat and debated it with myself, and when I arrived at a date, hubby said "Whatever you want to do, honey." (Gotta luv that man!).

So it was decided we would go in May and miss the summer crowds. We (I) thought about waiting until September, but Mason turns 3 in August, so we are going to squeeeeeze in this trip while at least his park admission is free.

But at the time, it was still too far out for us to feel confident buying airline tickets, and I still needed to work out every possible permutation of lodging options. All of the planning was so abstract--I needed something concrete, something real and tangible to prove that this trip was really going to happen. So what would any sensible woman in my position do???

SHOP, BAY-BEE! That's right! So for the brave of heart, here it is--the tour of my closet!

It's a lot like the Haunted Mansion, but with more dust....right this way...I'll deck the first person to make a wisecrack about the pile of dirty laundry (there is a laundry basket under there somewhere)....Now, that grey metal door in the floor to your left is an in-ground tornado shelter. I am a tornado-phobe, and after driving through west Texas to go pick up my BIL in the hospital after an accident in Wichita Falls and actually finding myself driving into a tornado (nephew: Tia Ashley, did you notice there aren't any bridges or ditches or anything around here??? Me: Ya' know Little Sal, I was just thinking to myself that if I was going to build a road right in the middle of Tornado Alley, I think I'd put a few bridges and ditches around....), anyway, after that harrowing experience, I decided the next house we built would have a tornado shelter in the house. We take all my son's birthday party guests down in it at parties and tell them it's our dungeon.....Anyway-can everyone fit? Okay, most people just hide their Christmas presents in their closets, but this is where Mommy hides--the Disney Trip stash!!!

It started with 7 blue shirts from Disney Shopping. I decided we should all have matching shirts for at least one day. But then I decided, why just one day? But when I went back to the site, they were all sold out of everything except size 3X in yellow... So I looked on ebay and found some bright lime green Disney shirts, some lime green Animal Kingdom lodge shirts, and started "collecting" them. So far I have enough for everyone except DD4 and DS2. For some reason, nobody ebays toddler Disney World shirts, so I may have to get creative.

So, matching shirts--CHECK!

Next: pre-trippie souvenirs! I hate spending valuable touring time in souvenir shops, and I hate paying $30 for a $10 stuffed mouse. So it's back to ebay! Right here in my (Shhh--) magic Disney bag are Safari Mickey, Safari Minnie, Safari Goofy, and Safari Pluto....and I think an extra Safari Mickey because I lost track of what the heck I was doing at some point....

Here's a pretty white straw hat for DM, so she doesn't get her nose sunburned!

Some of those really annoying light-up-and-spin-around-things to break out for the kids while we're waiting for Fantasmic! A couple of little hand-crank music boxes for Ramie & Mason-- Ramie's plays "Beauty and the Beast," and Mason's plays "The Second Star to the Right.", 4 lanyards (Animal Kingdom for Riley, Pirates for Ethan, Princesses for Ramie, and Mickey for Mason), 4 pins to start their pin-trading habit (because I am totally in to complicating my life...), a neoprene Safari Mickey water bottle holder...a jumbo book of Mad Libs for waiting in line, and each child's envelope w/ the stash of Disney Dollars they have received for birthdays & holidays.

So the plan is to take all this stuff with us, and then dole it out (dole....mmmmm--dole whip here I come!) while we're there to appease my little souvenir junkies...and the kids, too! We'll still do some shopping, of course. In fact, we've gone all through the Shopping section of the Unofficial Guide, and each of us (me & the 2 oldest kids, anyway) has gone through and selected the shops we want to hit....but that's another story for another day!

Next up: 1978 at the Contemporary, and can't we have a Disney Vacation without somebody throwing up?

Hey Ashley!

the trip report! Congrats on the Cindy ressie! Wow you really are a smart planner. I would never think to buy all those suvoniers ahead of time, then again I am not a mom let alone a supermom like you!

My mom and I are thinking about going in the beginning of December before the crowds. We really want to see the Christmas decorations. When I was young we went once in the summer not that long after Epcot opened and I remember it being unbearable! Then 4 years ago we went in October and last year we went in September perfect weather for me. I would love to go in spring too maybe next time. We made a pact that we would go every few years and so far we are sticking to it!

So did you get you AKV ressies?

Michele

Hey Michele !

Me? Supermom? Nah. Okay, maybe. But you are soooo sweet to say so!

And I'll make sure to tell hubby that my current ebay fetish is just "smart planning!" That's what I've been saying all along! No, he hasn't actually given me any flack for it...yet! Gotta love him!

Our Cindy ressie is currently for Thursday am. Truthfully, I really wasn't expecting to be able to book it that day, so I just asked for the first morning we'd be waking up in the World. Now I'm thinking I may call and see if I can change it to Saturday, thinking that I hate to give up prime Thursday am touring time at whichever park has morning EMH, but Saturday being a more crowded day in general, I might not mind spending an hour or so up in the castle!

We actually ended up renting points for VWL . Originally, we just thought it was going to be too expensive, as AKL has "value" villas for a lot cheaper. But in the end, some "stuff happened" (my VBF says that if I were a game show contestant, underneath my name tag they would have to print "Stuff Happens to Me."), and we ended up at VWL. The kids are soooo stoked--especially Ethan , my little explorer boy! They would have been happy at AKL, and we were this close (see how close together I'm holding my thumb and forefinger?) to booking it, but then there was that "stuff," and it just made it a better decision to book the VWL since that was the one the kids and I had fallen in love with in the first place.

We'll be staying at ASMo Wed, Thurs, Friday, and Saturday, because the rates at the DVC properties double on weekends. We'll move on over to VWL Sunday morning, which will be fine because my Cuz will have to head to the airport then as well, so we'll be around seeing her off anyway. I wish she could have worked it out to be there while we are in the VWL.

We're getting a 2BDR villa, and even though the weekday cost is about $120 a night more than the cost of 2 rooms at ASMo, if we fix breakfast in our room every morning, and then prepare our own snacks to take into the parks to tide us over til lunch, then fix lunch when we come back for a nap/swim break, we should save enough on food to justify the difference.

I am sure I am going to have some great pics.....in MAY--only 6 months away! So I have 6 months to figure out how to post pics on here....Photobucket? is that what I'm supposed to use? Can you believe I built a 10 page website for the nonprofit, complete w/ color & photos and all that jazz (you've seen it, right Michele? Not too shabby, right?), but I am totally intimidated by the thought of trying to figure out how to post pics! I am, after all, a bear of very little brain.....

Michele--as in THIS December? How amazing! That would be my absolute first choice of a time to go, but we love us the family tube ride at BB (even though it includes me wearing a swimsuit ), and we wanted to wait a few months to let Mason have a chance to develop a little more. He had his gross motor assessment yesterday, and he's at about 16 months (at 26 months old). Waiting til next Dec. meant he'd turn 3 and not be free anymore, so May it is!

But you'll have to figure out the photobucket thing and post lots of pics--and then tell me how to do it!

Hey Ashley!

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Since we had a suprise last minute trip to Aruba this summer this December is out. So December 2008 it is! Honestly I really wanted to go for my 30th b-day in January (2008) but my mom wasn't having it (neice's b-day is the day after mine so I think that has something to do with it) I need at least 11 months to plan and wait it out. It drives me nuts planning so early and waiting but hey its all worth it in the end.

I will have to play with the photobucket thing and try to post some of my Aruba pics. If I can figure it out I will let you know!

Glad to hear Mason is developing more! I know what you mean about the 3 yr rule. I think it should be children 5 and under are free. Sometimes when I take my younger neice (she's 3) places I think it is ridiculous what they charge!

Anyways, can't wait for the next installment!

Have a great day, guys and ghouls!

Michele

Love the Bible verse in your siggy
And, I also home school my two children (18 and 15)
Haven't read all yet. I'll catch up a little later.
Looking forward to some more reading.
Thanks for joinin' in the fun, Shmu! I have the bible verse from my siggy painted on my schoolroom wall. When we are having a particularly rough day, I will often quote that verse, to which my children will add: "...not for nervouse breakdowns!"
