Jeanne,
Just read your one day whirlwind trip report, it was brilliant and the photo's so good.
I hope you get Jaydens meds sorted and that Jack Skelly custom is awesome.

I love the customs.....I think my favorites so far are Teresa's Animal Kingdom twirly skirt outfit and your Skelly outfit.
I think loads of others are really cute but I am afraid I am like Becca in not really enjoying the Princess stuff so much.....Becca and I feel that Princesses are beautiful, they wear beautiful clothes but have no substance too them...dont shoot us but we think princesses are just MEH.

Now give us a Skelly or an Eyeore...... We luvs Eyeore

Mandy

The coolest Big Give ever! No dates yet and already Big Gived...that should be like being "booed"... what IS that anyway??? Being Boo-ed...? or Boo'd? or whatever? I digress!!

I am so excited for you guys.

And I will pray for Becca's neuro appt. I hope they can help her.

Make sure you guys pick really "cool" temperature dates if she gets overheated easily...
Mary, you are jus tso sweet!

Being booed, it's just what we call when someone sends you a little jackolantern smiley, it shows they like you! You can then put it in your siggy to show everyone just how popular you are!

(I had to find the devil from an outside source, couldn't find a devil in the DISboard - DISboard must be too nice to host Devil smilies )



I dunno what boo-ed is either, I did read someone explaining it on another thread but I still didn't understand and now I cant find the thread again to give you the link

When I did talk to the MAW person 2 weeks ago I did mention that we were hoping to go this coming winter because Becca doesn't do at all well in the sun and heat. MAW said that we should be okay with that timeline but it probably wouldnt happen before Christmas. So we have fingers crossed for after the New Year, we would hate to have to wait until next winter (2009 - 2010) as Becca gets more fatigued and less exercise tolerant every passing year.

But.....Becca IS going to DISNEY sometime and that is all that matters

Mandy
I think you guys are sweet, and so far you've done nothign to prove me wrong! So there!

Yeah, I didn't want to lose you to anyone else!!!! I'm so selfish!

Tired now……We set off at 10.30am and have just got back through the door at 7.15pm. Just for a 45 minute consult….

Going to go and Veg out in front of the

I hope the meds help Becca, and that you guys get your dates and coordinators soon! Are you picking out some outfits yet?? I am excited to see what Becca likes!

I love Eeyore too!! He's my favorite character! We can work around the princess thing! But, the evil side of me does think it would be very funny to make Becca a princess outfit, just to see what she'd say!

Don't worry, I won't!

I have sent you some pics of what Becca likes......I had to pare them down a tad seeing as she was copying almost the entire album

Becca says that if someone was to make her a Princess outfit she would still love it and wear it because someone had made it just for her.

In the same breath she also said that if someone was to make her a Princess outfit that she hopes it would be yellow/pink and lime green and not blue because she doesn't really like blue dresses

Love
Mandy

Oh my gosh...she is SOOOO sweet!

And she sounds like Lauren...so appreciative...but has in her mind what something would look like.

Becca is going to have a great trip...and the Big Give will be a huge treat! Like icing on the cake... or maybe more like a whole separate PARTY! With cake AND ice cream! (in case you don't know...I really like ice cream!)

Becca is a sweetheart (even though I say so myself) She has gotten pressies for Christmas and Birthdays which I know for a fact she had no interest in before the event. After receiving them she has said thank you and then gone on to playing with/wearing them as if they are her favorite things.
The only things she has never gotten into are Dolls......she strips off their clothes and puts them on her cuddly toys. The dolls end up nekkid in her toy chest never to see the light of day again.
Her figuring is that SOME of the present is still being loved on

Hi Mandy
Thanks for sharing your pre-TR! You and I share the same taste...I have a DD Rebecca, we call her Becky. But she's all grown up. Anyway, lucky you having the Disboutiquers choosing Becca for a Give! I lurk over there all the time, so much talent. I've subscribed to your report, I don't want to miss your updates!

Welcome TwistofLemon,

I know arent they talented? I have been on the Disboutiquers thread (before Becca getting chosen for a Big Give, not now) They make some really awesome stuff!!
All this MAW and the Big Give really give my family the warm fuzzies inside.
Most of the time in our lives we dont see that there are a whole lot of kind and generous people out there just waiting to be nice to someone and in most cases actively searching those someones out.
My family feels so privileged to be a part of this, it is really just like a dream come true! Dreams coming true generally happen to other lucky people, not to us
Yes, Becca is sick and she misses out on a lot of things (as I am sure all of the other MAW kids do) but she would still be sick and missing out without a WISH on the horizon.
For Becca, DREAMS DO COME TRUE
Her dream is coming true purely because of the generosity of other people, people who dont even know us but are happy to GIVE to us
Thanks MAW.
Thanks especially to the Disboutiquers whom all do this just because of who they are......Beautiful on the inside and outside.

Whoops, sorry!!
As you may be able to tell I still havent gotten over the fact that people whom we dont know want to do such wonderful things for people whom they dont know.......It still chokes me up

Mandy

They are coming on Monday at 8am

We are not early birds as far as getting out of bed in a morning but we will make an exception for this special event

The evenings were booked up for over a week and hubby can go into work late on Monday so 8am it is

We have been told that Becca has to have 3 wishes on hand for if the first wish is not possible.....so......her wishes are.....

DisneyLand California
Disneyland Paris


Me thinks she wants to go to Disney

Roll on Monday!!!!!

Mandy

What dates are you planning?
We are too late for 2008 now so ours is going to be sometime in the New Year (I hope), January or February hopefully
