Smile Our 10th anniversary FAMILY celebration at WDW *9/7 Two more movie nights!*

Welcome to my first PTR, ever!

The cast:

me & DH, married 10 years this October


our son, Q, turning 7 while we are there:

He is growing out of the cartoon-phase (already? ), but he loves the teeny bopper stuff, like Hannah Montana, Sonny with a Chance, and The Suite Life of Zach & Cody. He also likes Mickey Mouse.

our daughter, C, age 3:

She is obsessed with everything having to do with The Little Mermaid. Needless to say, Ariel's Grotto will be the first place we stop when we get to MK. I'm trying to make this costume she is holding last until October so she can wear it to the MNSSHP, but she is dragging it all over the house like a security blanket, so a replacement might be in order.

My mom, my in-laws, and my bil & sil are joining us as well. I won't share their pics just yet, but I'm sure you'll see lots of pics of them in the TR.

The details

When: October 16-23rd, 2009 (park days are 17th-22nd)

Where we're staying: Due to the size of our group, we decided to rent an off-property vacation home. I booked a home from a website recommended in my trusty Passporter! We are renting a 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom home with its own pool for just over $1k for the week. Not too shabby! This will give us a common area to gather while we are resting from the parks, it will give Q a quiet place to do schoolwork, will allow us to cut down on the meals we eat inside the park, and will give DH & I our own bedroom!

Why we're going: As I mentioned in my PP, our official reason for going is to celebrate our 10th anniversary. In risk of being blasphemous, I wanted to do a cruise, but DH wasn't going for it. So, since our kids are at a good age to enjoy & remember WDW, I convinced DH that we should do that this year. We will actually be flying in on our anniversary. Q will be turning 7 while we are there, so he can get the giftcard to use as his birthday money!

Next:
Park plans & ADR's, oh my!

Hey I just noticed that we'll be there at the same time!! We're going with DH's Aunt and Uncle and another family October 18th-23rd at AKV. Those lovely DVC members are letting us sleep on the pull-out couch.

I need to start a PTR...

Thanks for following me over!

I don't have much to update. We've taken a break from movie nights with my friend being out of town, and birthday weekends and such.

I did finish my Halloween costume! I am just being extremely lazy in uploading my pics!

Halloween costume done!

I'm finally getting around to posting pics of my Halloween costume. I got the tutu instructions from the Disney for Families board, and decided to give it a whirl. And I just-so-happened to have a red top with white polka dots on it. I'll probably wear my black capris under it instead of my black skirt. My capris were dirty the day I took this pic. If I can find super-cheap yellow Crocs I will get them, too, but I will not pay a lot for them, as I don't see myself wearing yellow shoes just because! I'm going to get the headband Minnie ears to go with my costume.

One more thing to cross off my to-do list!

awww! That is sooo cute!! We are going the MNSSHP on the 20th. But I hadn't really planned on dressing up. Although, your costume is super cute and look pretty comfortable. My only plan was to wear some black capri pants with a orange top....then maybe get like a witch hat or something like that. Maybe get some of those fun eyelashes and go with it!!! I'm obviously not as creative as you!
My daughter is going as silvermist....tinks friend. She wears blue, which happens to be my DD's favorite color.
What about your kiddo's? What are they going as??
