Have a wonderful time. I will be thinking of you and your wonderful family having so much fun and making such wonderful memories for you all.

Denise
Denise, I so wish you were going to be there to ride Splash Mountain with me!! I'll think of you when we are on it!! And I'll be thinking of your MIL when on BTMR!!! You are full of such funny stories--I wish we could talk in person. I'll miss all of you while we're gone! Once home it will be so much fun to tell you about all our adventures. Enjoy all that pixie dust that is sure to be coming to your mailbox soon.

Becca
Becca, thank you! I'll be thinking of little Jonah when we meet Goofy as I know how excited he gets!!! You'll be there soon! xo

I will try to take your advice to heart as I know I'd better! And I'll return the favor by reminding you to do the same when your time draws near. Thank you for all your advice, Beth. Have a great week!!

Thank you, Denise!!! Thank you for everything you've done to make our trip so spectacular. Today we went to see my Grandma in the hospital, and I took all of our new outfits with me. My Grandma always sewed for me growing up and although she hasn't in years, I knew how much she would love to see all of these wonderful outfits. Besides, she loves Disney--she and my Grandfather would always go to Florida on vacation and go to Disney World, just the two of them. She seriously adored everything that you DISboutiquers made for us. And I had Shay Lynne put the skirt you made on over her shorts just so my Grandma could see her twirl. She just looked at each item and loved it. I just cry thinking about it because I've really been afraid something would happen to my Grandma (89) around the time of our trip, and I'm so thankful she's OK for the time being. I've been praying hard!

Have fun and can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!

Love the princess outfit by the way. She looks like a princess herself!

Amy
Thank you for reading, Amy!! And thank you for the compliments. I love the princess outfit, too! I love all of them and couldn't pick a fave if I had to!! I know just when and where I'm going to put each outfit on each twin. We are so excited!! I'm glad you think we made a good choice with the ADRS! I love to hear everyone's opinions as we have never dined with characters before, so this will be a new experience for us.

Don't let it bother you when someone gets grumpy for a bit, or even half a day.... after all you will be pushing your endurance, sleeping in a new place, eating different foods, changing a lot of routines. For a day or two that won't phase most folks, but after that.... Give yourself and everyone else grace to be human and not take it to heart. Remember, each day will be a new beginning with a fresh start. Also, it is amazing how rejuvenating a GKTW whirlpool bath can be. I used it every night especially for my feet.

If y'all need a bit of extra sleep on morning, just let it be and go with the flow. Enjoy all that happens, regret nothing that is skipped. Live in the moment, literally and use your senses to take in all the magic.

May you all be blessed. You will be in all of our thoughts here on the thread.

Bill
Thank you, Bill! I'm sure we will all have a case of the grumps from time to time, so I needed your reminder. I also have actually calmed down a lot about having to do "everything". I've heard so many say that the kids won't miss what they don't do, and I know that is correct. I'm looking forward to it, and I will appreciate everyone's prayers while we're gone. I wonder if I'll have Internet withdrawals? I actually want to take my laptop because I need a place to dump the camera cards. Maybe I'll be able to drop y'all a line....

***

OK, I must get off here per Tinkerbeth's advice. Church comes early in the morning!! Thank you for all the well wishes and for EVERYTHING you all have done for my family and me.

Travel safely, enjoy the trip, take time to just enjoy where you are! I'll be thinking of you all week, knowing how much fun you all will have! Eat a cookie in Magic Kingdom before riding BTMR and splash mountain!

One more quick WDW story. When my husband and I were at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, we got caught in a brief rainstorm. As we sat on a bench under an umbrella, we just people watched. We were soon joined by a young couple on thier honeymoon. It quickly became evident that they were on a very limited budget and were looking for someplace to have a nice, albeit cheap dinner. My sweet husband reached into his wallet and handed the husband $50 and said "Have a wonderful dinner as our treat." When the young man protested, Mike said "Just come back to Disney World on your 30th anniversary and do the same for another couple!" Everytime we have been to Magic Kingdom since then, We look for "our bench" on the path near the Crystal Palace and think about that wonderful way we celebrated our anniversary.

Hope you make some great memories for your family as well.

Love and safe trip to you all.
Denise

Thank you, Robin. We will just let the magic happen. I've decided it doesn't matter what we don't get done--we will save those things for another trip. I cannot believe we leave in the morning!

That is one of the sweetest stories I've ever heard, and it makes me cry. What a way for that couple to pay it forward in the future, and I bet they will. I want to be able to do the same on my thirty-year anniversary. I was already emotional before reading your story because I have fifty more pages to go on the story of Henri Landwirth and GTKW. You really must read it if you're going or have gone there--it's amazing and so touching. So first that, and now this story, plus all the other that everyone has done for us.... I want to thank all of you.

I really should be packing, but I'm reading! Almost through, though, then off to pack, then tonight's the send-off party. I can't believe it's finally here. WOW. And Denise, I WILL eat a cookie for you, and I will be thinking of all of you all week as well.

Make-A-Wish Send-off Party

We had Clay's send-off party tonight. We are just home to finish up packing and send everyone off to bed! We got our final paperwork, an expense check, and a backpack with Make-A-Wish t-shirts and Clay's cap and button. I guess we're all good to go!



Here is Clay with his wish granter, Mike. He threw a way-fun party tonight...



A couple more...




And one with my parents...



I want to say one final goodbye, and just once more I feel compelled to say one last [inadequate] thank you to everyone who has given of themselves to make our trip special. See you in a week!

View Day 1 of our trip!

Michelle, thank you so very much for sending Shay Lynne this cute little T!! It was so thoughtful of you, and it truly has helped to build her excitement even more. She especially loves that her name is on it! Here are some pics...



Here she is spreading it out on the table so she could see it and so I could take a pic (she knows the drill!)






She's getting into this modeling thing! Michelle, again, thank you so much for thinking of us and for making Shay Lynne her very own personalized Mickey T-shirt!! She just loves it, and so do I.
I'm so glad she liked it! Hope you have a great trip

Exclamation A shout out to the DISBOUTIQUERS who helped this family!

Hello DisBoutiquers who helped this awesome family!

I think... someone from the "resort" this family is staying at is looking to get in contact with you.

http://www.disboards.com/showthread....1#post26641436


I hope you don't mind me leasing them to you. You all have done a wonderful job for so many families! I am truly honored to have you as fellow DIS'rs.
