Good morning Snowbirds! I'm hardly able to move right now from all the dancing I did yesterday. I just have to dance a little bit today and then I have to line up all the girls that are trying out. Shouldn't be too bad, but I'm very, very sore right now. I guess that super hot bath last night didn't do me any good! Oh well. I'm used to it. I hope that everyone has a great Sunday and GO BILLS!

Plans can change quickly.

We received conflicting news yesterday. My MIL has now decided to be with us for 2 days of Disney out of our 13 day trip.

Originally our trip was to be with 16 other extended family members. One by one they couldn't come due to this and that, which left only our family going. We then planned out each day and made all our ADRs, some at what others are saying hard to obtain places or times.

Now my MIL is going to be in Florida for one of the weeks we are there visiting her parents, and willing to drive up to stay off site and spend 2 days at Disney with us.

We of course are ecstatic that we can have alone time with just her at Disney. Our problem (yes DH has the same hesitations) is that she doesn't like all parks equally and can we change ADRs to add one more person even though she will be paying OOP and not on the DP? We might have to change around our plans too. This is doable, just a shock that came unexpectedly. We will hold off on changing any of our reservations until we know she is definitely going and what exact dates she will be there for.

I want to stress that we are happy to have her be with us for 2 full days of Disney. Last trip she went most often with DH's sister's family, thus we have her all to ourselves for this trip.

Thanks Remmy

HI!!!! I left yesterday and come back to a new nest!!!!! WOW!! We are really flying!!Also,---I am loving my ticker!!! I think it's finally moving!!!!!

Well, my hubby(since we are bragging) took me to the mall yesterday and bought me JEANS!!Remember when we had the blue jean discussion a while back? Well, I hate shopping for me-I am a weird fit, anyway, we went to Buckle. Loooove those jeans!!So, that was great. Well, I usually go to the mall during the week-lots less people. Oh my---it was packed and one girl checking us out said'Well, it' the first official Christmas shopping weekend" . I didn't know that. Did you? Well, here I am practically finished I would have thought the first weekend of November

Okay, are we going to be at Part IV before our trips? HeHe~~

That is crazy! It does get earlier and earlier every year. I did some of my shopping online yesterday and just ordered my Christmas cards today, so I guess it holds true for me - it was my first weekend! Maybe all retailers in the country just watch me and plan accordingly?

Good luck! It will be a nice treat, but as an OCD planner I can appreciate the pain of changing plans! I don't think it's a problem to add someone who's paying OOP...

Hello Snowbirds,

Happy Sunday.

Distherapy, thank you for your kind thoughts. I wanted to tell you I read the trip report you posted and just had to laugh along with you with some of your adventures. I sometimes need to know how to relax on vacation, especially at Disney. It will be hard with all my new found knowledge thanks to all Snowbirds and this DIS board.

I too am basically done all my Christmas shopping. I try to shop throughout the year so it doesn't hurt the pocket book so much at the end of the year. I am trying to convince the children that the Christmas tree will look a bit bare this year. With DH's job loss and our up coming trip. I keep trying to convince them there will be lots at Disney they will want and if we overspend at Christmas we will have nothing for Disney. Easy for DD who remembers some of her last visit at age 6, but hard for DS who was only 18 months at the time. Anyway, we will be surprising them with the lunch at CRT and Pirate Cruise and Alice tea party. We will include pictures with the small write up so they can understand what the gift is. I am thinking of doing it up as invitations.

It is cold in our area today and I think I saw a few stray snowflakes come down. I hope it can hold off until after Hallowe'en.

Just checking in with my Peeps! It's been a pretty lazy day here. My son is with friends at a birthday party, seeing the new Star Wars cartoon movie. We took my friend's daugther in exchange, since she didn't want to go along with her brother and all those boys. So, we've got lots of giggling going on in this house. Scot just came into my office and said, "Little girls are annoying!"

I'm doing some scrapbooking and housecleaning. That's about it.

So, hopefully you all are having a terrific day! I noticed my ticker is getting really close to the 2 month mark!!!!

Well at least you are getting a heads up now when there is at least some time to figure things out. This way you can actually have time to look through the schedule and see what's flexible, instead of it being the last minute and then you'd just look like a crazy woman trying to change everything

Really? Who knew... . Luckily christmas shopping in my family isn't some big production. We started to do "Secret Santa" just in our immediate family a few years ago. So we put a limit and say about $50 for your person and that's it. We like this too because the past few years we've gone to Disney so close to Christmas. So we like to spend less on Christmas and more at Disney!!!
