It's only Shocker and I, to save points, we have a studio. I just checked, so far it's still a Bay lake view....

Anita, are the Christmas week crowds unbearable? Or did you find it similar to the summer?
We go in late May/early June.... the crowds aren't that bad. Christmas crowds are comparable to what we saw at Spring Break. Honestly it's manageable if you plan right!

Just sayin...


BTW - officially last night we booked Friday March 19th at WDW. Might stay Sat also.

Will call you to see if we can't just meet up!
I'm pretty sure we will be at Epcot that Friday night. We want to see David Cassidy at the Flower Power concert. You know it's F&G!

Sweet video of Harper in Small World.
You can imagine that we were planning to just cruise in front of their Dumbo and video them riding but with Baylor at the controls.......
Didn't quite go as planned.

Harper was just amazed by all those folks in Small World!

Why does it seem like there are more Mondays than there are Saturdays and Sundays?
It was a long Monday too.....

Sometimes that Baylor! You just want to reach out and grab him.....UGH!

OOOH I'm crossing my fingers for your castle view...that would be FANTASTIC!!

Another great update Anita...I just love reading your tales at Disney!! Always good for a smile, a laugh, and a great time!
I'm telling you, that darn Baylor and the Dumbo video....
Just typical, very typical....
I'm still very hopeful on the castle view too!
Thanks for reading Jen, I'm glad you are here!!

Are you still getting some bad weather in your area?? I wish winter would stop....I am beginning to think that spring will just pass us by all together and we will go right to fall/winter again - !!!!
We had some sleet yesterday and snow flurries last night and today, really cold! I'm so ready for spring too!
Our Spring Break trip is in just 18 days!
Yowza!
It was one of our better days!

My oldest dd is soon to be 13 and is already starting with her drama. Seems like nothing I do can make that girl happy . I just know that if I acted like that at 13 my father would have kicked the you know what out of me! I would not have even considered daydreaming about acting out... but that was many moons ago! I also had to laugh about asking her to take the bus alone - horror of horrors! I have a 26 that's right 26 yo step son who won't travel the Disney system without us! I asked him to take my younger kids back to the room last summer when we were in MK so I could do some last minute shopping with hubby and you would have thought I asked him to climb Mt. Everest in a speedo!!

Harper is just too cute for words!

I do have one very pressing question - I know I break all the rules, but I usually travel around with my (gasp) belly bag! And given the size of my belly you would gasp too ! Anyway I really like all these Vera bags I see you guys with, and EBAY is my friend (or enemy whichever applies!) so do you usually ebay these, and if so are they the real deal or knock offs and how can you tell (yikes that was a run on!) Also, how do they hold up to the lovely Florida rain showers/soakers! Any help would be appreciated, so that I will not have the fashion police after me this trip!
Hi! Welcome, I'm glad you are here and reading along!!
Thanks for the compliment on Harper!

Kids can be a pain, especially the drama Queens!

Ebay is great for Vera shopping. When it rains, I just tend to tuck mine in my poncho or jacket. They are washable so you would be safe though...
This past trip I purchased a Vera Frill backpack. It's patent leather. So it's waterproof. Perfect for Florida!
I've never heard of a knock off Vera on ebay, ever!

Okay Anita....let's see.....Harper really seemed to enjoy that balcony I love to sit out there too and gaze over the serengeti
Harper in her 3D glasses just cracked me right up!! She is just so adorable!!
Wow...the Castle is gorgeous with that lighting! I have never seen pictures of it like that!
Your PP pictures are great! Especially love the one of you and Marc
I have a pink cupcake One of these days I am going to have to take a picture of my Camilia bracelet with the Disney charms that I bought in the store by me that sells Vera. Just thinking you might need something else to collect

Tracy
Ummmmm, Tracy....
I need to see that bracelet! Like now.
I was also looking at a Pink Cupcake VB tonight...
Thanks on the Marc and I pic. I'm thinking of framing that for school, for him.
That picture of the castle is one of my favorites too!

I hate to hear that drama is coming the next day....
Drama, drama, drama....
Yes, the Dumbo video makes me laugh, it's Baylor at his best!
Occasionally we are able to make ourselves presentable for the photo pass photographer!

MeMom was right, Baylor turned Harper's first Dumbo ride into a thrill ride!

Just got back last night. I'm all caught up on you TR now. I love your photo pass pictures. The drams so far doesn't sound too bad. Can't wait for the next update, a little foreshadowing there. Hope it wasn't too bad.

They are having some new Princess and the Frog topiaries over between MousGear and Test Track. Will you try to get pictures of those? And the sand sculpture, too?

We saw David Cassidy last year or year before, I can't remember which.

I've been away from the boards for a few days, so I had a lot to catch up on! The picture of Harper's "mean face" was just adorable.

It was son nice the way you all traded off baby duty-that way everyone got to do something they loved.

The family pictures, both at DHS and MK, were great! You have a photogenic family!

I love Vera, too! I just got a new all-in-one wristlet (in Paprika) for Christmas. I don't like to carry a lot at the parks, and my old one was perfect for me to carry around when I went with my sister. It fit my ID, ticket, phone, and credit card. Of course, when I go with the family I usually carry a little bit more, but I am still not a big bag person. I really like the Libby bag. It's small with an adjustable strap. It was good for me to carry on my person, and then I had another small tote bag type thing on the stroller. I put my money and valuable things in the VB bag, and just diapers, wipes, etc. in the bag on the stroller. This time I won't have any diapers to carry!

I am thinking about getting a new bag before our August trip. Speaking of which-I made our ADRs this past weekend.

The studio is very room and beautiful. I hope you get your MK view.

Hmmmm a name for the locker....

A Christmas trip may be a possibility for 2011. I think I'm booking Columbus Day weekend for MNSSHP and F&W.

We sure will! Shocker is the better picture taker between us but between the both of us, we're sure to get some good ones for you!

I just wish he still looked like he did in the old TV series. He was so cute!

Thanks! We love to get her to perform, and that mean face is one of her "acts"!

We knew touring with a little one would be different. It certainly had it's joyful moments!

We took quite a few pics! There are some horrific ones as well!

The best thing about VB is there is something for everyone! Have you checked out any of the new "Frill" line? I love those bags!

So are you happy with what you got? You need to share!

We are hoping for a big DIS meet Christmas 2011 EVERYONE is invited! We are thinking right around Christmas since it's lots of teachers.....

Are you going to try to book an Epcot resort for F&W?
