That is so nice! I love her and William's faces!

I knew she would go wild for that pillowcase Heather made for it: I want one!

Can't wait to see what else they get!

I can't wait to see which dress she chooses.
Thank you so much for your info re: BBB! That really helped us decide what to do. Lauren keeps telling us that she wants to dress up like Tinkerbell...so hopefully they will have a Tinkerbell costume. She will be PUMPED that she is getting a makeover! She loves that stuff. I just need to decide what to bring her to wear under it...so she won't itch sitting on a costume all night!

We are excited about staying at the Contemporary. No one in the family knows about that yet...except Lisa...Richard doesn't even know. Lisa wants to surprise him, too!

William has been more excited about this than I anticipated. But he has decided he wants to wear his Karate suit for the Halloween party (he just got is Senior Blue Belt!) and he is so particular about clothes, that it worked out well!

Tessa was thrilled to see the picture she colored. But, she wants to know what happened to the other 1/2 of Piglet!

I love to see the kids faces! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I hope you have a magical trip and I can't wait to see what else you get!
Heather, I read your TR the other night...part of it...it was sooo funny! Very entertaining! I have not made it to Teresa's yet, but that is on my list for tonight! I wish I could write like you guys do!

Tessa's picture was so sweet...and her note was precious!

We can't wait either! I just hate that I won't be at her house for several days. I am going to be doing laundry, getting stuff done, etc, this weekend, so I won't be at her house again till next week! (Which should work out since we will be together LOTS at DW!)

Aren't they sweet! They both loved the pillowcases...and the shirts...Lauren's skirt...and the colored pencil holders!

We have received several packages already and have been floored by all of the stuff you guys have made and sent. Here are some pics, as promised! Everytime I think I am going to post these, they get new stuff ...so this is Part One...as a little birdie has told me some more stuff is on its way...


For the past several days Lauren has looked like this...

Update!

I have updated this report to include a new agenda! Yep, it changed again. Mainly because we planned to see the electric parade (does that date me?) and the fireworks on Saturday night...but now they have a MNSSHP, so we have to leave MK by 7:00.

We are SOOOO excited! This time next week, we will be PLAYING at GKTW! Woo Hoo!


So...you will have to go back and see post 1... Here is a link (Thanks, Teresa, for telling me how to do this!)...

Have a fantastic time and remember to just breathe and take it in. Once I realized there was no way we could do everything and just focus on having fun the trip was a breeze. Just let the magic take over and things will be wonderful.

I can't wait to see your TR and read about your experiences with helping someone with CP in WDW. I usually read about it from the person with the disabilities viewpoint. It is going to be nice to read about someone like me being a helper.

That is true...this is a different viewpoint! I am planning on writing lots of stuff down, taking an insane amount of pictures (and using photopass) and doing an awesome TR when we get back. I am praying that I can hang in, too...and not get totally exhausted (I know you understand that).

We are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited (my "so" keeps getting bigger!)

My friend! Excellent trip report. You know I will do anything I can do to make your trip more enjoyable. I am in Orlando at a meeting right now, but will be at the parks on Friday night with my niece, Tyler. Be sure to call me if you go to MNSSHP on Saturday night! We are so excited.

The contemporary is great. We stayed there once and the kids absolutely loved it. The family will be so happy, and you have two rooms now. That's great. Tyler and Iwill be staying at OKW. I have never stayed there before and I love trying out all the resorts.

Be sure to get the kids a first visit button at town hall when you get to the parks.

I just know your trip will be magical!
