We actually videotaped it which was great because our oldest DD was really starting to read well at that point and we had her read the shirt, which she did...no reaction...then I said "what does it say???" she said "I'm going to WDW...", and I said..."and that shirt is for you???"....she said "yes", and I said..."so what does that mean???"...meanwhile, little DD is just looking at the shirt clueless when all of a sudden our oldest put 2+2 together and starts screaming and jumping up and down shouting, "We're going to Disney!!!"

I love watching that video!
What a great memory to have! I would do t-shirts but I am on strict orders that I am to never require matching or cutesy shirts again. Boys!

I_Heart: Stop reading those T&Cs, you just can't change now. Stuck, stuck I say.

Hmmm. Surprises! I'm not really good at them either. at feeling Pinterest guilt.

Let's see... what about a present for each of them that they each open last:
  • DS9 has a non-Disney-fied (so they can't suss it out) card inside the box which says: "What about"
  • DS7 has one which says: "we celebrate"
  • DS6 has "New Year's"
  • and have them all help the lil' one open the last huge box which contains Mickey balloons and a card which says: "At Disney World!"

That's the best I can come up with.
Love the multiple box idea!

I'm feeling pretty good about being stuck , but then I did just get an email from BWI IPO. Whoops. Haven't actually canceled that one yet. Hold time was too long when I first tried and now I'm waiting to get my Disney confirmation from hotels.com before I commit to canceling.

Pioneer Girl Sarah will soon have her 'bundle' back and will be able to surf, chat and flip! But, most importantly, she will be warm and have food and a nice, hot bath!

Is Gwynne at WDW now?

Who will be making some changes tomorrow? pas130 perhaps?

Jeanette is now at the gate with the girls:

Great pic. Thanks for sharing!

ps. Does anybody else ever have to go back and do over the limit smiley delete on a multi-quote. What a pain!!!

Janet- so sorry to hear about ds's friend ...it is difficult being a teen/young adult sometimes these days.

Sarah- so happy to hear your power is back I hear there are still a few people out around our area.

Linked over here from the older thread by mousemommy1 (thanks ).

I was driving myself crazy trying to pick where I wanted to stay for my next trip! I swear I should've just gotten a dart board and put the resorts on it. Whatever I hit first was where I was staying! Glad to know I'm not the only indecisive person (I love dancing bananas)

I am HERE!!!

Things have been crazy here on the east coast. As most of you know, I am from the Jersey shore. We now live in northern VA but my entire family is on the Jersey shore....the REAL Jersey shore. Things have been crazy..... to say the least.

On a nicer note.....we are planning a December trip. Yes, we are the dreaded "Pop Warner" folks. My son's team will be playing in the regional championships this week-end. We are slated to win. If we/when we do, we will be in Orlando (Disney) for Pop warner week. I have never been during the winter (Alway, Always Augist/Sept/October. ) I have already booked a candlelight processional dinner just in case we win. Trying to get my classroom in order so that I will have a peaceful winter Disney vacation. I am OOOBER excited....

Thank you Janet for sending me the link. Can't neglect my RC Homeys.

I really hope the extra trip is going to work out! I wanted to talk to my DH about it tonight. But, seeing as he is asleep right now on the couch next to me, I don't think it will happen. Oh well....more time to throw together a complete trip presentation with budget for him.

Oh goodness....I truly hope all of your family doing ok.

I think that's great that your son's team will get to go to Pop Warner week. We've been during that week before (not for Pop Warner) and I didn't think the crowds at the parks were bad at all. It'll be so fun for you to get to see Christmas decorations at Disney!!

Hope all is well with your family. You behave yourself during pop Warner week; you don't want to become the subject of a thread

Good! We got ours back Sunday morning after much commotion. LIPA should be dismanted. I took out my frustration on daily facebook rants.

It got so cold in the house. I can't imagine the homes with children, felt so bad for them. Generator is on our list for Christmas

Jeanette Love the pic of your girls at the gate

I go back and forth between being excited and not so much. I can not get my butt in gear to do all I have to do before we leave.

Have a great time!

At the library, my morning stop to check my mail and the DIS. Verizon is supposed to be coming this morning, however when I left the house at 11:30 no sign of them. Oh we'll, baby steps hopefully this afternoon.

Jeanette and the 3 princesses what a cute picture at the airport! You four must be so excited to have woken up at RPR. What kind of mischief are you up to today? I suspect I have an old cell number, I will get your new one from Janet!

Now then I am Missing dates for RC upcoming trips. Miss? Step? Everyone who wants to be on the list me know and I will add you in.

I heart, I like Miss's suggestion, so cute! I can't believe they don't know, what a fun surprise it will be!

Jenny, sorry about the man cold. Can you just send him to the man cave to recover?

Shelia, you must be getting excited, not long now!!!

Got a lot of emails to catch up on. Hopefully Verizon will show and I will have Internet and TV (oh my goodness, I am missing my shows )

Hope everyone is well.

I just had to quickly stop in and say a big HELLO to PAS and the girls in Uni yeah for IOA -- one of my favourite parks!!! I hope you have a wonderful day.

Janet: my heart and prayers are with you, may Anna's life be remembered for the joy she brought to all who knew and loved her.

Sheila: I hope your trip is amazing! I can understand the alternation between excitement and indifference....that's what happened with me on my last trip, but I am putting faith in the fact that I still have Disney Love and my next trip will be better!

Good news -- I booked my cousin from England for May 19 to 30 at Animal Kingdom Lodge, savanah view bunk beds with the deluxe dining plan!!! His boys are 16, 9 and 7
Now all I have to do is help him plan park days and dining with that deluxe plan!!! how fun!! I'm a tad jealous, LOL

TTY'all later

Just stopping in quickly to say hi! My world is spinning right now....meetings with DS' school and autism resource department, and if that wasn't enough, DH's "partner" which I say very loosely right now, sold the company over the weekend. We are not quite sure what that means for DH but he was already asked about relocating???? He said no, but for the right price I would consider it. Hopefully we will know more in the coming weeks.

Jeanette - enjoy US and IoA!!!!
