Hi!! Several people on here have encouraged me to do a trip report--so here goes nothing!! I hope you will subscribe!!
We are headed to WDW May 16-23, 2009 and will be staying at the Polynesian. Dh and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary!! This will be the first trip for my 2 dd's and they could not be more excited!! This will be my third trip--my first trip was when I was 3 years old and my 2nd trip was the Spring of 1994. I was a freshman in high school and we had a choir competion at WDW. Dh has been several times but it has been awhile.
Time for introductions!!!
Me (Becky)--turning the big 30 in just a few months!! My family and I live in Memphis, TN (well--a suburb really). I am a former Kindergarten teacher and am now a SAHM! I enjoy blogging, bow making, theater, singing, volleyball, shopping, Alabama football (roll tide!!), Facebook (sooo addicted!) and photography. I am very active at my church where I sing solos/duets (with my dh) and sing in our Worship Choir. I am a perfectionist/OCD and take planning this trip very seriously!! (And it's oh so much fun!! ) Dh is constantly asking me, "Are you on that Disney board again?!" (I've been reading a TON of PTRs and TRs recently--plus it's sooo addicting--I know you can relate!) May cannot get here fast enough--so in the meantime I am living vicariously through many of my friends who have gone to WDW in the past few months (and many of you by reading your PTRs).
This is a pic of me from Christmas (I'm usually the one behind the camera)
DH (Brent)--35 and really looking forward to our WDW trip--even if he doesn't always act like it!! Brent is an engineer, Star Wars buff, and HUGE fan of the Crimson Tide (he and everyone in his family went to U of A). He coteaches our Sunday School Class, is a deacon at our church, and sings in the Worship Choir. Brent is the smartest person I know but is also down-to-earth and much more laid back than I. We met in 1996 (when he moved to TN from AL) and were married in 1999.
A pic of us at Christmas
DD (Ally)--4 1/2--a mini-me!! She looks like me and acts like me (scary!!). She will be starting Kindergarten in August and is already reading!! She loves princesses, taking dance (this is her 3rd year), American Girl dolls, drawing, reading, anything Disney, and singing in her preschool choir. She is quite the performer--this past Christmas she asked her choir director if she would be getting her own microphone for their choir performance!! Hee hee! She also loves to pretend she's Sharpay from HSM or Hannah Montana. She thrives on a schedule and when anything deviates from it--watch out! (she may be more OCD than me! YIKES!! What have I created?!?!) I named my PTR from a phrase I hear from her ALL THE TIME! "Mommy, when will it be our turn?!" The past few months I've had at least 7 friends who have taken trips to WDW--she's seen their pics and heard all about their trips and she is READY TO GO--TODAY!! Can't say I blame her! Her favorite princess is Ariel with Cinderella as a close 2nd! She is also my poser (see pics below).
Ally--age 4--this past Halloween
Visiting AGPNY over Christmas
DD (Claire)--17 mo. (will be 19 mo. during our trip) and my baby!! She is a ball of energy and is my climber--she has no fear! She does not pose for pics like her big sis--what can I say?! Maybe it will come with time. She is also a lot louder than Ally was at this age but is much more cuddly than Ally was. She is precious!! She likes to sing along with us--I think she is going to be a soprano like me! She knows how to make anyone smile--especially if she's getting in trouble--such a stinker!! Many have asked me why we're taking her on this trip and I say why wouldn't we?! They say, "Don't you want to wait until she's older?". I'm like--Disney isn't going anywhere--we CAN come back (and believe me--we will)!
Claire LOVES her baby dolls!
on the car last Sunday morning (not the best pic--took it with my phone)
My girls (4 year and 1 year pics--my girls are exactly 3 years & 3 weeks apart--to the day)
Anywho, it is soooo very late here in TN (almost 3:00 a.m.) so I hope things have made sense!! BTW--I am such the night owl. I get most of my things done after my girls go to bed. I look forward to meeting many of you!!
