I'm lucky any of my clothes are clean, let alone wrinkle free!
I don't do the whole thinking thing!

Haha! GREAT!!!!!! I'd be a great asset to have along. I can drive(perfect driving record after 8 yrs.), plus I babysit all the time, so you and hubby could have some time to yourselves and I'd just play in the parks with the kids!

However I think my boss would be a little ticked at me if I called and told him I needed more time off!

I don't even know where CBR is, but thanks for the invite! We're off-property and we're eating at T-Rex on Saturday evening. I can't wait! I just love DTD!

Well, DH just finished up the majority of his packing, if you can call it that. 4 shirts? Honestly?? His response, "We have a washer and dryer." So, I guess he wants to be wearing the same outfit on different days in pictures. I just gave up. I still have TONS of packing to do tomorrow and I'm so excited!

We were in Disney for 12 nights and had a very fun, busy, crazy time, filled with lots of laughter, food and great times.

There were some not so great times too - mostly involving feeling full all the time (thanks, Deluxe Dining!), Brazilian tour groups, and worrying about our sick cat at home. I think she's okay now though!

We arrived home yesterday after being in transit for about 30 hours. Waaaah! I'm busy unpacking, washing clothes, and playing with my cat - but at the same time, loading our photos on PhotoBucket so I can start my dining report. Hopefully later today - I'll post the link when it's started!!

Lots of catching up to do on the DIS!!
Yay, you're back home...or, should I say, boo, you're back home....

I'm saving TRs for when I get back....something to look forward to when I have to come home

Funny, too - I had recorded all these WDW Travel Channel specials - I had seen most of them once but wanted to watch them again to build up my anticipation right before leaving - ha, didn't need it...so now I can watch them when I get home

Yeah, I know what you mean -- the guys on my trip are talking about just taking carry-ons while I'm worried about my luggage being too heavy. Although my luggage includes food for breakfasts, coffee [I heard WDW doesn't have good coffee], popcorn, etc....

And I LEAVE TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know if I'll log in tomorrow morning so I should say good night and good bye .... I'll see y'all on the flip side.



And I want to see this guy one more time before I go --

LOL....well include me in as crazy....dancing in PA here....72 hours too!!!! One good thing is the weather is suppose to be beautiful....70's!!!! I was stressing that we would get delayed in our Philly airport cause of snow...but that looks good too!!! Now to just keep everyone well....everyone here is sneezing stuffy noses....just hoping that it's now and within 72 hours everyone gets better. Was going to send my daughter to school Monday morning for 3 hours but decided not to....thought if anyone was sick over the weekend with the stomach bug....our luck...she'd get it. I know it sounds paranoid and what's going to happen will...but still....talk about being crazy! LOL

In 24 hours, I will be on my plane!!!! I can't wait!!!! I'm just about ready to burst and I have NO idea how I'm supposed to sleep tonight. I'm really looking forward to today though. I enjoy packing and getting everything organized. Our suitcases don't fit under the bed, so I had to stash them in my not-so-big closet. At least tonight, we can put them in our office after our DD goes to bed. Thank goodness I don't have to work or anything today. I'd be way too distracted!

You are going to have a great time. I haven't post too much but I've been reading along...and I know the feeling of surprising the kids. In 2005, we didn't tell our kids, 3 of them well one was a 9 month old lol..but the two older ones thought we were going to our yearly trip to the Jersey shore. I didn't sleep all night and couldn't wait. I woke them up with the video camera...they both slept in our bed so I could catch them together when we woke them at 4 am lol. We woke the and I handed them a gift box each with disney money, ears, etc. They were like what? They were so disoriented lol. After we told them we are going to Disney!....My son who isn't good with change lol...said "we aren't going to the shore?" LMAO....talk about a moment of disappointment for me with reaction. But it was very short lived about a minute lol. It really didn't hit them til we were in the limo going to the airport...and they kept saying this is really happening. They were absolutely thrilled....and still talk about it to this day. They even said this time...we kind of wish you wouldn't have told us this time either lol.


Anyhow...have a wonderful trip....enjoy and just a word of advice. Being the planners we are...don't let things disappoint you if something didn't turn out exactly how you though there. Take a breather and enjoy your time there. Nothing beats the children's reactions when they first walk down main street and see the castle.

Thanks for the advice! I keep telling my DH to make sure I'm relaxed next week. I don't want to let things get to me. We're going to have a wonderful time!!! By the way, I see in your siggie that you've stayed at the Grande Vista. Isn't it wonderful? We stayed there on our last trip in 2006 and loved it. This time, we couldn't get in for the week we wanted, so we'll be at Horizons by Marriott. We stayed at Cypress Harbour in 2002 and they were building Horizons!!! I can't wait to see this resort!
