that is such an awesome twirly skirt and it looks wonderful on her. The ladies of the disboutique are very talented. Y'all don't have much longer before Clay and Shay Lynne can model their outfits for all the characters.

You know a skirt is a success when the twirling begins. Hopefully Shay Lynne didn't get too dizzy.

(See Denise, it's not tacky or over the top. )

Isn't that one of the coolest tees ever!?! I've already warned Heather that I'm going to try to do something like it.
How funny! I always call his clothes outfits, too...so now that's what Clay calls them. We just get corrected by his dad!! I think it's so neat how y'all share ideas. I couldn't copy anything like that if my life depended on it!

Shay Lynne looks gorgeous in her spinny Minnie skirt!!! That is one of my all-time favorites!! She's such a pretty girl and she makes a wonderful model!

I absolutely love the picture of Clay standing on the toilet "checking his look in the mirror" That pirate Mickey applique is awesome, as is everything LisaZoe creates!!

How awesome is Sally for making everyone matching t-shirts!? Wow Sally!! Yes, it's absolutely the standard that you post the best picture of yourself, no matter how goofy your children may look (and they don't look goofy anyway)!

If you can't sew at all, you could just try ironing the goofys on and just hope for the best!

The limit for pictures and smileys in one post is 25. Not that I've ever exceeded that or anything. But, you can post 1000 pictures if you just break them up into 25 picture posts.
I will continue to post as many pics as I can because I want you all to see their reactions and how much they are truly loving all of this special treatment!! I can get my mom to help me with the Goofys!! She does sew--I just didn't inherit any of her skill. She doesn't sew anything like you all do, mind you, but I know she can help me with that! Thank you for filling me in on the picture-posting rules, too! Oh, and I'm glad someone understands about the choosing pics that I look best in!!! LOL!!

It is my pleasure to share as much as I possibly can of their reactions to all the pixie dust!!!

Hello - and all I can say is WOW!!! Those outfits/clothes/garments are WONDERFUL!!! I'll admit that I followed one of the DISboutiquer links that had been posted, just to see the sort of fantastic creations over there, and spotted picutres of bot the Peter Pan shirt and the matching t-shirts, before they were sent out. I thought the Peter Pan shirt was absolutely gorgeous - and what fun to have matching custom tshirts that ID you as a Wish/GKTW family.

Again, I'm am bowled over by the talent and generosity of the DISboutiquers!

Have you started packing yet?!?

Aren't they amazing?? I hope they let me know when I can get back on their thread. I absolutely love seeing all their unique creations...and to actually be the recipients! It is truly amazing.

I have not started packing yet!! I am terrible! I dread it, and the whole time I'm packing I'm worrying about the dreaded task of unpacking! But we'll get around to it, I guess late next week. I can't believe we are leaving one week from Tuesday!!!!!

I bet it's fun to know what's being sent to the families, and then to see the kids actually trying everything on! I was loving that for Isabelle, then Hannah and Logan for a while until I got banned! All of you are beyond talented!!!

By the way...

Have you seen my dorky poll? If so, please take part in it if you haven't already!! A few days ago I saw the link to "create a poll" and thought "Hmmm, wonder what that would be like...". So I created the stupid thing and now I can't get it off!!! Does anyone know how? I must admit, however, that it is interesting to see everyone's favorites. I knew MK would win! What surprises me is that no one has voted for Animal Kingdom, and that is where we were planning to spend a full day! It makes me wonder if I should change our itinerary.... We were planning to spend a whole day at both MK and AK, then divide the third day between EPCOT and DHS. Is this a mistake?

Anyway, since I have to keep looking at my annoying poll (), please vote if you are reading this so that I can feel like it is serving a purpose!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!

That is how I would do it. AK is a close second to MK in MY opinion, however we only go in the winter and I hear AK is the hottest park

Sally, we absolutely love them, and I am so, so touched that you would do something for each one of us!!! Ty and Madison were so excited to get something, and Lance and I were, too! The t-shirts are blue (we all love blue!), and there is a "WISH 2008" logo on the front. Within each letter are tons of different Disney characters! Then, on one sleeve Sally put the GKTW logo (Give Kids the World, the awesome place where we will stay). On the other sleeve, she put the DISer logo!! This is so amazing! For one thing, maybe we'll be recognized by other DISers, and for another, it is always great to be identified with GKTW b/c this is how the magic happens, I've heard. I tried to show everything as best I could in these pics:

They were so excited to open yet another package!!

Here are the logos...




We couldn't all be in one pic, so we had to take two (Ty was at a friend's house when we first opened the box...

Don't mind Clay, he looks a little Dopey. This was the best pic of ME, and that's what really matters, right? LOL!!!

So I took a pic of Lance and Ty once everyone was home...


Sally, you are wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!!! These will be awesome on our trip! Thank you for making every one of us feel special, and thank you for making our trip even better! xoxoxoxo
Wow, these are way cool! I saw the design a while back on the Disboutiquers site. I love the DISers patch. You will probably have some folks notice that and say... "Hey, are you from the DISboards..." You are our ambassador now, Amy.

Bless you!

It makes me feel better to know that I am not the only one out there who can't keep themselves from saying extremely stupid things!

I can honestly say that even if I were at Disneyworld for a month, I would probably only go to AK for part of a day. There is a lot of fun stuff to do there, but jham is right. It is the HOTTEST park ever! It is really humid and hot and the theming is so "exotic" that it seems as if a lot more of it is unairconditioned. We were once there for 12 days and really only did AK for 1/2. That was before EE, so now we would probably do a whole day and do it a couple of times, but never more than a day, and I don't think I could give up the other parks for it.

Epcot is our close second. A lot of people don't agree though. My kids love the world showcase and always have. There is so much to do there. We sometimes pick a game for going "around the world" that keeps them interested. Last time we picked up something in every country for our printers drawer. Sometimes we've done candy. We always eat our way around!!!! We just love it!

I really liked AK but agree with others it about it feeling hotter. I thought I noticed it more because we went our first full day so we weren't used to the heat. I remember feeling so hot and sticky so we were ready to head back to the resort early. I'd planned a shorter day since it was the first but we didn't even stay as long as I'd thought.

BTW - I'm not sure how to remove a poll. I have a feeling it's not possible. I tried a test and don't see any option to end a poll or remove it once it's posted. You could go to the tech forum and ask, though.

Your welcome. I will admit that Michelle from the DISign board designed the logo for us. It can't be just ShayLynne and Clay going away with out a little something for going away. We all want to make sure your trip is truly Magical.

(Isn't the Pirate Mickey and Peter Pan totally awesome!!! )

matching t-shirts

What a great idea for the matching t-shirts. They are so cool I just love them. What beautiful customs you are receiving. There is a lot of talent around hear. How thoughtful for total strangers to do such nice thing
