Luke's dancing pics are cracking me up! He was definitely getting his groove on!

Great end of the night pics!!!

I can feel Luke's exhaustion in those bus photos!

It's a good thing that you will have another TR after this one, because otherwise I would not want it to end!
he's such a hoot! we were ALL so tired but poor little luke was just pitiful. hope you can join us on our other TR!

All of the pics are just wonderful. My favorites are
1. the pic of you and Ray smooching in front of the castle...so cute.
2. Dumbo's booty!

I'm impressed that you all made it till midnight, especially Luke. It's so cute that he says he's "checking out."
yeah, i had to throw dumbo's booty in there!

luke is just a riot when he lets loose and dances like that!

I just finished Erica's TR from christmas, thanks for those amazing pics Erica!! Add in the beautiful halloween decorations posted here and I have decided that when I win the lotttery (yep, keep dreaming!!) I will buy myself an AP and visit WDW in each season, do the halloween, christmas and pirate/princess parties plus hit up the F&G and F&W festivals too. Anyone care to join me? Lapu lapu's (or maybe grey goose slushies) all around!!

Hope the vandygirls have a great trip and stay dry. I'm looking forward to the next TR.
erica's camera rocks and i want one! i'm with ya on buying an AP if i won the lottery! actually, i'd add a DVC membership to that.

Looks like right now it would be realistic to be hoping for decent weather, because beautiful weather might be a tall task even for Genie right now.

I'll at least hope you are able to have good weather for the Halloween party, because I really want you to experience that.
thanks! i think the genie granted our wish!!!

I want so much for you to be able to have that same feeling, much like you did at the Pirates and Princesses Party.

So, good thoughts for you guys for the trip and especially good thoughts for those who have homes and lives in the path of this destruction that is coming on shore this morning. That has to be so sad and so frustrating to watch that coming at your house knowing you can do absolutely not a thing about it.
thanks for your good vibes! we had a blast and i can't wait to tell you guys about it!!!!

One of the worst feelings in the world -- walking OUT of MK for the last time of your trip!

So lucky you'll be back in just 2 DAYS!!!!!

Here's some ixiedust: again to keep those nasty storms away!
i told erica - when i leave MK that last night this-coming december i'm gonna need therapy afterwards because i won't be back in 2009!!!!

Thanks for the great pictures of the windows. I don't remember ever seeing them decorated like that... way cool! It really is those small touches that make Disney awesome.


Your just a few days away from going back! Good for you!
i heard once that tink doesn't come out much at WDW because she doesn't like the love bugs.

the small touches at disney world are the best. i notice something new every time i go and that's part of what makes it so special to me!

I'm so sad it's over but lucky for me you are about to embark upon another trip in just 2 days?!? I hope the weather is ok and can't wait to hear all about it when you get back! Have fun!!!!!
he's such a cutie! it's really cool to watch him grow up. anna and i started getting really close a few months after he was born, so i feel like i'm sort of his second momma! thanks for your good thoughts for the trip!!

Sorry to see the report coming to an end but that's the good thing about stretching out a report... usually when it ends it's like the trip's really over but it doesn't matter this time because you leave in TWO days!!! Have fun!
thanks! those window displays were just so neat - i had to get pics of them! hope you join us on the new TR!

The photo of you and Ray in front of the castle is darling.


Very cool pictures of the windows on Main St. The little touches are magical!
thanks! i love that pic in front of the castle. it looks kinda wierd with the lighting but i think it makes it kinda cool.

We've got BBQ chicken, hamburgers, fries, baked beans, cole slaw, carrot cake, chocolate chip cookies and oatmeal cookies over here. Better stop by and get some while you're out!
oh, maleficent.......she's SO awesome. i won't say any more, but i'll just tell you i feel even more close to her now!

that menu sounds great. although i'm still so stuffed from all the yummy food we ate......i don't know if i can even think about food!

good! i promise you'll love it. just kinda do some research on it beforehand just so you know what you want to see while you're there. it's almost impossible to see EVERYTHING, especially if you have little ones.

yes, ma'am.....you are correct. 2 trips! well, now it's 1. tomorrow will be 3 months until we leave to go back. but 2009 will be disney-less. sooo sad.

You are very blessed to have had all these trips, and they will become even more special when you are able to take your own little one and watch the absolute joy and wonder in his/her face that happens at Disney World.

I'm excited for you girls as you set off on your newest adventure. I love girl trips! I love family trips, too, but girl trips are fun in a different way - less stress in trying to keep the men happy.

I know you'll have a good time no matter what, but I do hope the weather doesn't put a huge damper on things for you. We'll look forward to hearing from you soon. Prayers will be with you for a safe drive and good times!
yeah, i love that picture of luke and anna - they didn't know i was taking it. i am definitely counting my blessings this year. and i totally agree with "less stress in trying to keep the men happy"! soooooo true! thanks for your prayers.

And, I agree - make-your-own treats at Goofy's Candy Co. should be on everyone's must do list!
thanks so much! i have one of those treats in my fridge right now. soooooooo good!

I'm getting ready to PM you about something else. Have a GREAT day! (I know you will.)
if i had to guess i'd say at 10:30 we were somewhere around the florida/georgia line. we left here around 6:00 (more details later) and we arrived at our hotel around 1:00 a.m. we were TIRED!

Hope you have a safe trip. Don't worry I can't leave my DH either. The longest we've ever been apart is one night since we've been married (1996)

Glad you two made it safe for FL. You'll be on your way today. Tell Mickey I said hello and Erica can you by any chance get a picture of the castle for me
that little guy is eli and he's a pudgy butt!!!! he's such a cutie though. we thought about shaving him for the hot summer months but then ray said he'd look like a hippo if he didn't have hair.

thanks for your nice comments! oh, i leave ray for the weekend all the time (going home to nashville to see my family) but never for more than like 3 nights. this was hard, but i had fun.

oh, and i have to say, when i read your comment on wednesday morning as we were getting ready to leave for disney i literally laughed out loud about erica getting pictures of the castle!

We just spent 10 days there and we were ready to come home. I'm not sure if I'm doing a trip report or not this time. We are going to CA Friday am for a business/golf trip over a long weekend. With kids back in school and sports, I'm not sure I'll have time to put into it. Anyway, back to the Disney break, I think we are going to skip Disney next year. OMG, I'm going to be in trouble for saying that here! hehe
We want to take the kids somewhere other Florida and WDW for a vacation so that they don't think there are only two states in the country! hehe

I'll look for your new trip report! I can't wait and hope you have a magical trip!
i agree about there being other places to vacation. although i absolutely love disney and i will always continue to go there, i want to experience other parts of the world, too. disney will always hold a special place in my heart though.

She's right!

They said the weather had been good - a little rain before the party, but then it stopped. Today it was sunny and hot.

Just thought I'd let anyone who was keeping up know that the wild and crazy girls were safe and sound and having a great time! They sent Jill a phone picture and they both looked very happy!
SUNNY AND HOT is right! when it wasn't raining it was SO HUMID! and that food was good but not really condusive to being hot and sweaty. thanks for posting this, memom!!!

Hope you are having a great time!!

Welcome back!

I've been so busy I haven't been able to check in since like page 40! I was able to take some slow time during work to catch up.

Awesome pictures, descriptions, and you do such a good job of conveying what's going on and what you guys are thinking and doing. Truly entertaining. I'll be sure to check out your new TR and keep up with it once I get caught up.

I'm still hoping to plan a first DW trip maybe sometime next year. What with maxing out the budget with our house we bought last year (bad idea, but what's done is done) and some lingering credit card debt we have $0 to spend. Hopefully we'll get something done next year.

Thanks for a great TR!
