He is not aware of his surroundings anymore and down to 100 lbs(or less). My ds ran great today (XC) and was 1st for the Jv team. (He said for grampa).
My dh got to see that then headed for airport. It is just frustrating knowing he and mil there in fla with our family is all up here in NY.

I am usually packed by now for my upcoming trip but it is hard to feel happy knowing others in pain.

So my disney pen pals thanks for being there.

Ds has actually invited some kids over(first boy/girl get together) and I made brownies and have popcorn and drinks ready for scary movie night.

You know, do what we do best,(like you) be a great mom. That's something we can at least control.
Trisha so sorry to hear this about your FIL, big hugs sent your way.

It's a knee jerk reaction from that stupid tour agency renting out people with GACs :-( totally disgusting. Hopefully they will have another look at GAC implementation. I think receiving impact statements from families can't hurt, and maybe get them to look at it again.

Mousemommy yay!!

Long day, at work from 6:45, short staffed

It's our Thanksgiving in Canada this weekend, so Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian RCers
That's a really good suggestion Sue. I think I'll do that. Happy Thanksgiving!

Big hugs Dani and Melissa! We know you are amazing parents, so sorry that the GAC changes will affect you and your little ones! Everyone deserves to enjoy Disney in a safe, fun and accessible manner, and whatever way makes it the best experience for the whole family is what should be encouraged! Hoping Disney realizes this and works with families needs! Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends ( big hug from Alberta to Sue and Jenny!) I'm having our dinner tomorrow, Monday is Josh's girlfriends 18th bday, we are taking her to the VIP 18+ theatre to see Captain Phillips (hope it's good, I love Tom Hanks, so it's the only reason I'm going!) we will get her her First Legal drink for the movie

I am so excited for our trip -- only 53 days to go!

Have a wonderful weekend!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

I hope all of my Canadian friends are having a wonderful day!

Oh, I think I have created RC monsters. They have revised the spreadsheet after further research....the results are shocking. I'm not quite ready to change just yet....they are working on convincing me...it all started with a confession from DD9..."I didn't want you to think I like the XXX resort, because then you would still think I like princesses....well, I do still like princesses, I just want my room redone and not have them in my room anymore....my room is still like a nursery! But, I do really want XXX resort."

Guess it's time to join the club!

Aloha!!!

I am currently working on planning our Sept 2014 trip and have probably got a note on my reservation saying "can't make up her mind!" I started at WL in a SV room, then in a wild whim moved to CR Garden Wing for a brief stay, until planting at BC PV. Our biggest criteria was wanting to be close to a park and have 3 beds (we have a family friend coming and would love for her to have her own space rather than share with DD)

After running numbers and discussing with DH, we are now back at WL but with bunk beds. I keep second-guessing myself (mostly about if we should try to save $$$ or enjoy the luxury). The move from CR to BC to WL has been dropping the price bit by bit.

And, of course, all this might become moot if I can swing FD at POR next summer! AHHH! I'm going room crazy!

Welcome!!!!

We've got a great bunch of enablers...err, people over here! Seriously though, great peeps who will help you make a great decision. I'm not great at saving money though....my trips just get more and more lavish.

I just switched our 10 nights to CL at GF!! Our last two trips were WL CL and YC CL...I'm running out of ways to step it up. luckily, our military discount makes these trips more "affordable" but

Thanks guys!!! Woooohooooo!!! I'm so glad DD9 "came out" with her actual love of the GF... because I honestly feel like it's the best option since we can't do Poly. And DH will do whatever his girls want, he's outnumbered in this house.

DD6 just said she needs to be able to wear a princess dress everyday while there.

I would LOVE to do CL, but DH feels that since we are open-closers on our trips right now, we should save it for when we can have a more leisurely pace... this is our first week long trip, and hopefully a spring-board into the lengthier stays! Once we get a feel for how much resort time we'll start having, I can see CL in our future!!!

Hi! if you do ever try CL, be very careful! It is quite addictive, especially for a few of our DH's!

Big hugs I heart!!! I hope you find a way to enjoy it!

Now - what is this hedge maze? In all my trips to WS, apparently I have missed it. Oh wait, is that because you are actually supposed to go INSIDE the countries? Not just eat and drink around the edges?

Thanks Janet! Is it normal to feel bad as each day ticks off that I don't use it? LOL. This AP could end up costing me a ton!!!!

Do you AP holders use TiW?
Lacey, yes, one does have that constant burning feeling in the pocket with that AP! it certainlyl makes it easier to plan a trip with when we "don't have to pay" for tickets!

Trish: So sorry to read the news about your FIL Hopefully your FIL gets some strength havng your DH with him.

So how was the social get together? btw congrats to your DS.
