Ok just a quick update. I told the kids yesterday about having to take their "Nana" to the airport for her trip in a few weeks! They totally bought it....hook, line and sinker!!! They are also under the impression that DBFF and her family are flying out of Baton Rouge Ohhh, I can't wait!!!! The only one I was really worried about telling was my DS8. He is a thinker and figures things out. It helps that my MIL is going to be playing along for the surprise!

I just had to share! 24 more days!!!!

Yay for the Nana plan!!!! I hope Peyton doesn't overthink the whole thing and catch on. He shouldn't though since now he thinks we're flying about of Baton Rouge. Maybe he won't put 2 and 2 together????

Hehe, the "Nana Plan". That cracked me up! Yes, I too am hoping that he doesn't figure it all out. I would be so disappointed! Oh and my kids are so sad that ya'll are going that they asked if ya'll could bring them back souviners!

I don't think I could listen to Emma and Syd's little sweet girly voices putting in souvenier requests without scooping them up and telling them that it's all okay and they can just come too! Too funny!!!!! Did they happen to mention what kind of souveniers they wanted? Just curious as to what they saw last time that they remember wanting - since ALL Bo talks about is how he doesn't even have a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal!!!!! I know, we're the meanest parents on the face of the earth, right?

Anytime they ask why I am looking at WDW stuff, I tell them I am just helping DBFF (Aunt Melonie) plan their trip. They get the longest faces with the saddest little looks. It kills me, but it's worth it!!!!
I love it- but, it is sad. But, always remember - it will be so worth it to see the looks on their faces!!!!! Your plan for the surprise sounds like it will go very smoothly. Just remember, when you feel weak - You can pull this off! It's so tempting at times to let it sneak out. Just stay off the phone with Disney when the kids are around. I've been caught a couple of times humming Disney songs after gettting off of hold.

You have some great ADRs and it's so neat that all of you adults are such great friends. One day we'll do HDDR - I've heard it's great. Are you going to tell the kids about which ADRs you have or are you going to surprise them each day? That's my next decision to make about our surprises.

I know in the end it will be worth it, but it sure is hard sometimes. Me and DH and DBFF have to talk in code around the kids. So far it has worked, lol! I am so ready to get it over with though. We have gone this long and I would just DIE if they found out now!!

I am really excited about our ADR's too! That is a good question about keeping that a surprise too. That may be fun too!!!

Ok, quickie update. No real new info to share. I started putting somethings in a suitcase. Kind of gathering of items, lol. This process is especially hard when they don't know anything about the trip!

While my DS8 and DD5 were at school and DD4 was occupied





I took my camera, sneaked into my room and snapped a few pics. This is what I have so far:







I sooo loved getting this packet in the mail!!! It makes the trip seems so much closer!


Luggage tag still on the suitcase from last trip



Well, that's all for now. I will update more soon!!! 23 Days to go!

Since I am pretty caught up on my PTR, I figure there is only one way to pass the time.....Posting some of my favorite memories from past trips should do the trick! Hope you enjoy!!

This is from our first trip in March 2006. DH had been to WDW a few times growing up, but I never made it. We were supposed to chaperone a trip for his sister's senior trip, but I found out that I was pregnant with DS so we had to cancel. It just wasn't the right time to take a trip and I was nervous with it being my first pregnancy and all. The first time I was able to go was when we took our kiddos in 2006. It was so EXCITING!!!

This is DS Peyton on his first WDW bus to MK!!




This is the 1st pic I took at MK! Cinderella Castle!!! It was so beautiful, I got all teary eyed



This is DH and DS in 2006 our first trip. This was the first thing he wanted to do!



DH and DD Emma, waitng in line for IASW, our 1st ride in 2006!



My little DD Sydney - Her 1st time in Minnie's House! She turned 2 while we were there!



The is DD Emma the first time she saw Cinderella. It was during the afternoon parade. Can't you just see the amazement on her face



DD Sydney with her 1st frozen lemonade in MGM!



Cont. in next post.......

Here are some of my favorites from our Thanksgiving trip 2007. I loved seeing the castle and everything lit up for Christmas, but I personally would not go again. Waaaayyy too crowded for us!!!!

Here is my family with my Mom & Dad at the MGM Spectacle of Dancing lights. It was amazing. We really enjoyed it. Too bad the weather wasn't cooler, lol!



DS Peyton vs The Beverly at Club Cool!



My girls bowling at POP! They loved it, and they even gave out little prizes. Just a little Disney Magic



I love this one. I told DH he looks like a Princess security guard. Here he is carrying DD Sydney after a long day in MK!



DD Emma with my Dad at Crystal Palace breakfast



My girls with Belle at Akershus Princess Lunch



My kiddos got to open the HDDR show! They were so excited So was I!!! They announced them by name and where we were from and they got to ring the "dinner bell" for the doors to open! It was a great moment!



They each got a Magical Moment certificate. Here is DD Sydney with hers!



DH and his friend, lol



DH and DS playing around



Zourg Jail!



I think that is all for now. Hope you enjoy the pics! Stay tuned!

Yep! Those are the legs I'm talking about - both of my kids had them and some days I just wish I could have them back at that age for the day.
