Needing a good dose of our "Happy Place" Updated 11/11

We haven't been to Disney since 2009. That was our fifth trip and I used to spend a ton of time on these boards!! The kids started at a private school and while it was the best decision EVER for our family it emptied our pockets.
We experienced a family tragedy three months ago and we need something to cheer our kids up; something to look forward to. There will be no more putting things off. Therefore, we are going to Disney!! I am hoping that doing a pretrip report will help me get organized. It has been so long I can barely remember where to start. Plus I tried to go during less busy times but not this trip.

The cast
Me- Amy I am 37 yrs old. I am not currently working and concentrating all my time on my children.

DH-Dean He is 44 yrs old and a great father. After work he coaches football at my kids' school

DS15- Peyton will be 16 yrs old when we go. He plays baseball and football. He loves spending time with his friends

DD14- Bekah She plays softball, basketball, and tennis. She is my drama queen and is always surrounded by friends.

DD9- Rachel or RaeRae She is a bundle of energy. She plays softball and basketball. She sticks fairly close to me lately.

Not going with us is my oldest son DS17. We lost him in a car accident on May 18. We are still learning to live without him. People keep telling us to get the kids out of town and give them something to look forward to. We chose Disney as our destination because Tyler hated Disney and it won't remind us of him at every turn.

I will figure out photobucket (been a long time)and will post pictures. I will also start on the actual report. I am determined to give my kids a great trip but my mind is mush! will definitely need help/advice
