Ok everyone........exactly ONE week until we leave for Disney! However, wouldn't you know it, both DDs have come down with colds . We're doing the Airborne and hoping that everyone is better by next week, but it won't stop us!

I still have tons of stuff to get done. I'm working on several of our t-shirts yet, and I have started packing, but there is still a lot to do. Since I'm not exactly sure of what the weather will be like, I'm packing jeans as well as capris/shorts for pretty much everyone, but I think we'll probably be wearing mostly jeans.

I'm hoping to get all of the t-shirts done within the next day or two, so I should be posting pictures of those soon.

I just followed the link to your TR and thought I would say hello!

I hope that you guys have a great trip and can't wait to hear about it when you get back.

Hope everyone in the family gets better before you leave. It seems like a lot of people have gotten a cold right before leaving this year. Keep taking the vitamins and airborne

We're really excited. DD keeps saying, "When can I take another Mickey head off the countdown? They're almost all gone!"

Yep, that's what I'm planning. Everyone has a zip up sweatshirt, so if it's cool we can easily add a layer, but it will also be easy to take off.

Hi ! The pre-trip report has been a little slow because I'm never quite sure what to post, but the trip report will be better, I promise. I'm pretty much a picture freak, so there should be lots!!!!

I hope everyone is better too.....DD #1 seems to already be on the mend, except for the runny nose. We're all doing the airborne (except DD #2), so hopefully that will help.

Ok, I was PRODUCTIVE during DD #2's nap this morning. I now have ALL the transfers for our shirts printed. I have to wash the blue and black shirts yet, and then they'll be all ready to go ! Hopefully my mom and I can get them all ironed on tomorrow and I can post pictures!

Today I called 1900 Park Fare because I wanted to order something special for DD #1. I honestly couldn't decide between the mini castle cake and the slipper dessert. When I showed them to DD (a long time ago so that she'd forget about it), she said she like the slipper dessert. However, DH said that he liked the mini castle cake better................

SO, crazy woman that I am, I just ordered both of them . I figure, we have two DDs, so we can have two surprises. If we don't want to eat it all, we'll just take it along. Dh is going to think I'm nuts, but that's nothing new!

Great PTR. My family also has a wonderful Nana. My DM is also MY DD3's favorite person in the world. We are having a girls only Disney trip Oct 23-30. Yeah we are in single digits. I hope you and your family have a great time!

I do feel really lucky to have such a great mom and a great Nana for my girls. It has been just me and my mom since I was about a year old, and she did more for me than I could ever ask, and now she does for my daughters as well. I feel lucky that we can afford to take her along with us so that she can share in the magic.

We are definitely excited, and thanks for the comments about my DDs. I agree, but I'm a little partial . We'll take all the pixie dust we can get!

I'm pretty sure the castle cake is $25, but we'll see for sure when I get the bill. I just wanted to do something really special, and, even though she said she liked it better, I'm not sure DD will eat the slipper. She's not really a fan of white chocolate. I guess we'll see, but I got the castle cake in chocolate.

Thank you for the well wishes........I hope you enjoy my trip report as much as I've enjoyed yours ! I honestly can't wait to write it.

Ok, you guys are not going to believe this...........this morning we ended up at the clinic (better than the ER, but still bad). Both DDs were up all night last night, and DD #1 has a raging ear infection in both ears! I decided that I was going to have them check out both DDs since we were there, and it turns out that DD #2 has an ear infection too. Both of them are now on antibiotics and DD #1 is on a steroid nasal spray. I just hope they are both better by Monday.........DD #1 is incredibly miserable .
