Hey Laura---looking out at all the snow and the ice on the EVERYTHING, thinking about how you are seeing the exact same thing!!! Yesterday we got close to 7", then the ice came---with as hard as the snow is coming down right now, who knows how much we will have before it is all over!

BTW--I SO love looking at the youtube videos---gets me through until the next time I am there!

I am all caught up now. You will love watching Luke as he sees the characters for the first time. He will be just a month younger than Brooklynn was when she made her first trip to the World. I look back at the pictures often and just smile. She won't remember any of it, but I will never forget.

I am not real confident that we will go tomorrow. It snowed a lot this AM and the interstates are clear, but not the streets- I need out of my house!

No videos today, but they sure are fun. My kids did not even play outside today, Hannah saw her friends and did not even care- too cold I guess!

Jill I totally agree, I remember so vivid the stories with pictures and trips with the girls. WDW is for all ages! So glad to having you reading!

Well, I think I lurked through your last trip - figured I'd come out of hiding and let you know that I really enjoyed it, and am enjoying your pre-trip!!! I'm another one that's had to tell the kids we're skipping this year...and though we were tempted (badly) when the 4/3 deal came out, with an out-of-state wedding AND 100th birthday celebration, it won't happen. I'm getting lots of ideas from you though, and our kids are fairly similar in age, so I figure I'll continue to do so! (My youngest DS - born last April - has the same Disney onesie as your Luke. I love it!)

We'll be going in 2010 with extended family, as well (lots of it, though). My SIL and I are looking forward to all of the planning. And since we had a snow day today, as well, I've at least gotten a little time on the DIS (and time to grade papers, but I guess you've gotta give somewhere). Let's hope for no more snow days for either of us, and to more updates, as well!!

Another snow day??? I'd send you some of our warmer weather if I could -- I don't want all these snow days to interfere with your Disney trip!

I am getting a tad bit worried. Nothing to do yet about it. We were supposed to be off Feb. 13, not anymore!

Another snow day- that makes 4 this week... we are creeping slowly towards our WDW trip! Hopefully we will hear how we are making up the days next week!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you with respect to having everything made up before your trip----does your district ever consider adding minutes on to the school day to make up time? We did that one year several years back when I was teaching, and it was WONDERFUL!

So this week has been a stressful week for WDW plans. We made phone calls to move back our trip, which would have resulted in changing hotels, views and all kinds of crazy things. Finally a CM said to leave it and they would work with me if I had to move my trip (not sure what that would look like, but it made me feel better!) We even discussed going later in the summer, figuring the economy will lead to more deals for August. In Ohio you have five calamity days before you make the days up. We unfortunately lost three to a terrible wind storm, 1 for a subzero day a week or so and then four this week, making us at eight days off. We would then have to make up three.... ticking ever so close to my trip!

Luckily today though my district shared their plan for the days. We are now having school on February 12th (a planned professional day- hooray, I would much rather be teaching than in meetings) and have school on that Friday as well, which had orginally been a day off. That means at this point we only go one day later in June, which still give me a few days (3) before we need to be in WDW! I am a lot less worried... now I just don't need anymore big snows!

Coming tomorrow- I promise! ADRs... we have seven TS credits, so what have we planned and ideas I need from you!
