I can see how you guys can feel like Christmas. I don't think there was as many presents under my tree this last Christmas.

I have to make sure Liam doesn't see the picture of your DH's t-shirt, he will want one two. He is absolutly crazy about star Wars.

My husband had seen that shirt on another TR and loved it. He is huge Star Wars fan and has been since he was 10 years old. So he was so excited about it. This time has been so wonderful for my family. Just to see my DH act like a little boy has been such a blessing!!!

I wish I could of put the sound effects in. That would of made it even better. They are still enjoying everything. The boys slept with their stuff toys. I went to wake Lucas up this morning and he was already awake but he was still in bed playing with Buzz.

Thank you so much! This trip has turned my DH into a little boy again. Which has been such a blessing. I guess Mickey still makes us all kids at heart!

You just made my night! Your post really lifted my spirits. It has been one of those days everything that could go wrong has went wrong. So it was nice to know someone was thinking of us! Believe it or not the heat has not been to bad around here. The boys are back in school so we are adjusting to that schedule. Stay cool!!!! Hopefully the heat will lift soon.

Big give

We received another Big Give yesterday. I was not able to post it last night because we had a bad storm roll through last night and we were without power for a few hours. Since the ice storm it does not take much these days for us to lose our power.

Thank you so much tricia. The boys loved their shirts. They were so cute. I am just amazed at all of the talentof the Big Givers. My youngest really kpet rubbing his Mickey and saying feels so soft. He just loved that part. They boys are wanting to wear their shirts to school to show them offf and it is getting very hard to convince them to wait and keep them nice for Disney. I was telling them just think all of the new shirts that you will have when you come back and you can share with everyone the wonderful people who made these shirts for you.But thank you again they were wonderful and they agree they will be wonderful to wear at Animal Kingdom.

You are very welcome. This is my first time participating in a Big Give and I was very nervous. (what if the shirts don't get there in time? what if they don't fit? what if the kids don't like them? etc.) Thank you so much for posting and letting me know that they got there OK and that the boys liked them.

Oh, and don't you hate being without power with kids in the house. It is like the end of the world to them sometimes. My boys were home alone the other day and i got a call from my oldest. "Mom, we have a situation" I'm thinking OMG, what is wrong? He says "The power is out, how do I get it back on?" I told them to go outside and play, as the weather was nice. By the time they came back in it was back up.

Your shirts were wonderful!!!!! They were just perfect for the boys. You did a great job.

Oh the power thing is big around our house. We had a major ice storm to hit us the end of January and our entire town was without power for I believe 6 days. I mean nothing in our town. We had to drive at least 45 minutes to get gas for generators and food. The towns that were that far away were running out of batteries, gas, and supplies because everyone from our town was heading there to get supplies. We were without power for 10 days. So when the power goes out my children (and to be honest me too) get very nervous. Our infra structure is still weak in our area because of the ice storm and they are still working to repair the system.

Thank you again.

I understand having those days. I am glad the heat isn't too bad there. It is supposed to storm here sometime today. So hopefully it will cool off soon around here too! Your trip is coming up soon! I am so excited for you guys! I arrive the night before you guys leave So sad we wouldn't be able to meet up!
