I am glad we kept it! Marc isn't crazy about it and isn't in any hurry to go back but I think it's yummy

I had no clue that you had your eye on a certain someone in the band!

Just wanted to give you an update on Hannah's reading score. I called her teacher on Monday and expressed my concern about the big drop. She said that she didn't think much of it because 1) the selection may have been harder than what she's used to reading and 2) there could have been distractions. She said Hannah is on grade level for her reading so she's not worried. Progress Reports were also sent home Monday and she had a 25/26 for reading.

Also some big news in our house: Last April my position was eliminated and I've been job hunting. A friend of mine who works in the same profession was leaving her job and told me about it. I had an inteview yesterday and was offered the position, which I accepted. I start tomorrow. I'm wishing I'd told him I'd start Monday! Now to start scheming on convincing Clay on a Thanksgiving trip to WDW!

I just wanted to thank you for starting me on a new obsession - Vera Bradley! I just ordered a hipster, backpack and matching wallet in Raspberry Fizz off of their website. That pattern is also 25% off and all of it was on sale already - so all together it cost $97 - is that a good price? Anyway - I am ready for my July trip in high fashion now! I guess I will have to retire my belly bag thank god!

I hadn't thought of looking at the musicians. Maybe my knight in shining armor is really in an Alpine hat and lederhosen! I'm going to look more closely next time we eat there.

Of course, I've got this whole thing going with Naveen right now...

Congratulations on your job, Jill! I hope it works out wonderfully for you. I'm going to be working on my crew for a Thanksgiving trip, too. We really liked our other Thanksgiving trip.



wigd, this time next week, you'll almost be at the starting gate of your trip! Our kids are out starting Friday, but teachers have to come. We are out the whole next week, though. I think we are going to start our Memphis excursion Friday night, according to Jill. If she drives past Memphis and ends up in Orlando, I'll give you a call.

Hmmmmm, I guess it's a good thing that she isn't worried. Did you ask her when Hannah will be taking the SRI again? Our kids take it in May, a few weeks before school is out.

Congrats on the job! I'm sure you are so relieved!
How about doing a Christmas trip instead?

Welcome to the VB sisterhood! Isn't the Raspberry Fizz cheerful? I just love that print!
Bye bye bellybag!

On the price? I think you did really well for all that!

I've heard of the "Off Kilter" groupies, but not the groupies for the guys in the German band...... You girls might be onto something.....

This time next week I'll be worrying about getting laundry all finished up....
We have a half day with kids on Friday then half day to work. I'll be out that door and taking the dogs to the kennel as fast as we can go....
Then the crazy packing will begin in earnest....

IF I were to get a call from you saying that you had driven on past Memphis AND were heading to Orlando.....

No, I didn't even think to ask her about that! DOH It's Family Night (aka PTSO Meeting and Book Fair!) on Monday night and I'm sure I'll see her then and will ask her. Also get to hear about transitioning to 3rd grade and the joys of EOGs.

Thanks! I'm very relieved! I would love to do a Christmas trip but we don't have Alison for Christmas this year. It's our year to have her for Thanksgiving. The only problem I can see is the girls would have to miss 2 days of school and I can see Alison's Mom giving us a hassle about it.

It's possible that they don't even retest, maybe it's better that you let the matter rest for now and bring it back up around May 1st. I'm sure her teacher will have a full agenda Monday night....
You know her better than I do.
Do what you feel comfortable doing!

A group of us are working on a Christmas 2011 trip, maybe that will work for you all!

I started thinking about what came after the Candlelight Processional and realized that we just slowly made our way out of the park and headed back to the resort to start packing....
It had been an emotional day and a rather tiring one at that.
I snapped some photos as we made our way through World Showcase...








I just love the Norway Christmas windows!





Inside the shop in Norway! I'm sure we were looking for the troll!









Sorry, no Troll pictures....
I took a deep breath, held it and made my way through the perfume room.
Honestly that room gags me.
Gives me a headache.
Never wear the stuff.
No perfume ever.


Over to Mexico we went and rode this.




This was fun!
Harper loved it almost as much as IASW! It just didn't have quite as many dolls to look at
.


We walked towards the front of the park, can you spot Harper and her Mimi?




We went this way and that....




Deciding to look in this window.



Wouldn't you want to look too?



On to Space Ship Earth we went for our voyage through time....




Oh, then to Sunshine Seasons for supper...



We had a great meal here, so much food. I don't think anyone was able to have a happy plate but we left very full!
At this point we were ready to head to the bus....
Baylor was tired!




When we got back we all started packing and Harper got ready for bed and played with her Disney toys....



Do you want to play too?



Up next, Christmas Day!
Bye Bye big kids.....

All the Christmas pictures reminded me why I love Disney at Christmas. I may need to join the Christmas 2011 group.
