Smile Lyndsey & Lee May 27th 09 ~ ** LINK TO OUR VIDEO**

Well, since we are almost at the year out mark and nearly ready to sign on the dotted line with Disney, I thought I would start my planning journal.
All about us.........


My name is Lyndsey (31) and my Fiancé’s name is Lee (28) Yes he’s my toy boy . We live in Scotland in the U.K.

We met back February 1997 when we were both working in the local cinema part time whilst studying. It was love at first sight for me and I remember announcing to my friend (whilst on duty at the pick n mix counter) “I’m going to marry him and have his babies”.

Well one (on purposely) ‘arranged’ group trip to the bowling alley and a few drinks later, Lee fell into my arms and has never managed to escape.

Here is a photo of us at a family wedding the summer after we met. Check out the hair


A Photo a few years later at another family wedding



And this is us now



Not our usual attire - I have to add

Engagement story....

Well there’s not really one

I fell pregnant soon after we met (not to be recommended) so it was kind of a mutual decision to get engaged and so there was no ‘proposal’. We went to the shops together and chose the ring which had to be ordered. A few weeks later and we were in the staff room at the cinema, Lee hands me a box and say’s “Oh here’s your ring”. (He still gets teased for this overly romantic proposal, but hey, in his defence he was only young)

Heres the ring



It’s just a baby diamond because it was all he could afford at the time, but the fact that it has been on my finger for the past 11 years and the sentimental value that it has would outweigh the cost even if it was a million bucks.

Our life over the past 11 years...

Well in February 1998 our son Connor was born


Obviously not what he looked like then

And in October 2001 our daughter Megan was born


Oviously not what she looked like then

In 2004 Daisy arrived

then

now

Here is the most recent picture that I have of us – It was taken in the Scottish Highlands 2 weeks ago on a camping trip.



Why we chose Disney......we fell in love with all things ‘Florida’ back in 2005 when we had our first taste of a Disney vacation.


2005


2006


2007

So there we have it a 5 minute run down of our lives together so far............

She was soooooo cute when we first got her - she could fit in the palm of our hand, now she half squashes you when she tries to sit on your knee

Wait until he tries to get out, then you'll be wishing you were pregnant again
