I had 2 things I needed to take care of today (besides the piles of packing, etc.)- call DCL to find out about the documents & tags, and email the wish granter to make sure the letter that said a "in a few weeks" wasn't right. I didn't have to do either, because the wish granter called me early this morning.

Besides the shirts & buttons that she's supposed to deliver, guess what she has - our DCL packet that was mailed to the coordinator, and the coordinator mailed to her. No idea why the coordinator told me something different, but I'm very happy that I don't have to go through trying to find out if they were mailed, and who has them.

We're still not having visitors in our home, so we'll need to meet in town somewhere. She started by saying "whenever is convenient for you", but then started adding "except I'm not available...." which eliminated quite a few days. I suggested Sat. morning, she said that was fine, then said she was meeting friends for breakfast first, but should be home by 1, and should be able to meet us between 4-6 (will call us when they leave home), and didn't want to be out long because the deer are bad in their area. I really didn't want to cut into time that Tom is actually home & potentially awake enough to spend some time as a family, but I agreed to it, but I'm still not sure how Sat. morning turned into Sat. night.

Thank you to visitingapril09 for the beautiful Tiana dress. I love the wonderful Tiana card you made. The colors of the fabric are very pretty , and I like the style of the dress.

Thank you to dbarker for the wonderful key rings, luggage tags, and luggage handles. I love the design of the giraffe fabric. It's neat how the key rings can go around your wrist. We've never had handle covers for our luggage, so it will be easier to find our luggage now.

You can't miss my DH. He's a big burly USMC redneck w/ a fanny pack and acting like a kid who can't wait for the next ride at WDW.

Ooops. That would be me (and my family). I was in a rush to get to the post office, and forgot to sign the letter properly. Sorry.

I am so glad that you like the items we sent. I try to do something practical for the dads, so they don't feel so left out. DH reminds me quite often that dads always get left out and ignored.

We hope you have loads of fun on your trip.

Thanks Jo. I think my to do list keeps growing instead of getting done. Still waiting for the transfer info to be changed - yay for being able to see the info online, or I would have never known it's messed up. You're getting close too

I went to pick up the package from yesterday, and 4 more arrived today.

I'm really sorry that we're so far behind in getting the pictures posted. Angel is trying to complete the school work that she'll miss while we're gone, in addition to her regular homework, and needs to study for several tests she has next week. I'm not sure she'll even be able to open the packages tonight, but I hope she'll be able to. We'll get the pictures posted just as soon as we can, but it may be a few days. I'll list who the packages have been from, so that they'll know that we've received them.

Oh wow, looks like you guys have ALLOT to open! Glad ours got there! I have been lurking and trying to catch up still. Sorry you have been getting such a run around with your Chapter. It is quite sad that they are all so different.

Hope Angel does well on all her work and Tests!

Thank you so much Leslie, Billy, Carys, and Chase for the adorable outfit!
I have to comment on this outfit because I absolutely adore it ~ it looks sooooo good on Angel too!

I saw your list of packages posted and mine was supposed to be on that list! At least according to the P.O. Of course, when I mailed it it got stuck in the package drop off b/c it was too full. And this is not the first time this has happened to me. You would think if the bin the packages are supposed to fall into gets full that the workers might want to empty it and get to work shopping things

Of course, we are expecting a package that was due by the 6th and now tracking is saying the 8th. Good thing I'm one smart Momma and told my dd it might arrive on Monday (even though it originally said delivery for today or tomorrow). Now I'm worried it won't arrive by Monday!
