WOW!! I think it looks awesome!! Hubby does too! Can you make one for DD who turns 5 in April? She would like Ariel. It is really good.

This is going to sound crazy but my littlest one cried during the pooh ride two years ago and was a little scared last year on the Pooh ride. In one part of it, it is a little dark and there are some flourescent scary looking trees. She doesn't like it at all. My oldest never paid attention to it. Isn't it wild how different two children with the same parents can be?
Our kids are complete opposites looks and all. ODD look ust like hubby dark hair,skin etc. Also has his personality. She is more reserved, analytical and observant. When she is in a situation that is overwheming to her she will remove herself and happily play alone. The little one is just like me-blonde and blue. Has more of my personality though my mom has fianlly admitted that I was not this "wild" We call her the hurricane. She is the life of every party-loves everyone and takes the world by storm. She is extremely independent and spends much time on the "thinking chair"

It is a challenge to parent them in different ways but remain fair. They are so different that the same things do not work.

Sorry to ramble on and on.....

Thanks I would be happy to make DD an Ariel cake. Don't know how well it would mail though Ariel is a favorite around here also.

Thanks Wendy My DD3 loves cars too. She's often found doing crazy things in a Cinderella dress. I bet your DD is super cute playing Cars in her princess outfit.

Thanks for coming over! I've been reading your PTR also. Your DD is too cute! Love your favs . I'm a fan of Carousel of Progress and TTA. I have a soft spot for those. I think those are special because of my family trip in 1987. They were so cool back then.

I grew up in Monroe. Went to school at Kettering (was GMI then) in Flint and did my co-op at Ford in Plymouth on Sheldon Road. I think that plant is a Visteon plant now. During my Co-op I lived in Westland, Fenton, and Southfield. I have a lot of really good friends up there still. I make it back up there every few years for a mini reunion with high school and college friends. I keep in touch with them daily through facebook. I miss Michigan but wouldn't move back-southern Kentucky is a wonderful place to raise a family.

Thanks again for joining me on my PTR

You aren't rambling. We have the exact same scenario here. My daughters are complete opposites in every way and it is a huge challenge to find new and exciting ways to remain consistent and fair. I feel your pain..

I thin that McQueen cake looks awesome! My DS thinks it looks great too. Airfare is still quite high as of this morning . Looks like we will be taking the 11:50 or 1:50 for sure.

Thanks Nichole The little boy really liked it. I was

I haven't checked out airfare today. I need to go over and take another look. My credit expires on Tuesday so I better get my act together. I don't think they are ever going to open up cheaper fares for the 23rd

I've had a very busy weekend but I owe my list of DS favs.

Here they are:
1. Tower of Terror
2. Rock N Roller Coaster
3. Playhouse Disney (I really liked the Bear version much better)
4. Lights, Motors, Action (is that
5. Fantasmic

I'm really looking forward to trying out Toy Story Mania. It wasn't open when we were there last year. It sucks that Fantasmic is only showing on certain dates now. Makes it much harder to get over there and see it.

Well I have to get back to work on my presentation for work tomorrow. I have a ton of anxiety over it. I know that this is make or break...

What are your favorites?

I think this is the park I am looking the least forward to.
1. TOT um heck no
2. nope, no coasters
3. PD I am excited for this
4. My hubby wants to see this
5. Think it might scare the girls.

This is the park I need to plan next but I am just not feeling it.

Lots of luck for your presentation tomorrow. You will do great!!

Thanks Mary! Finally got it wrapped up. I forwarded it along to the plant manager for feedback. Hopefully he will critique it in time to edit before the preso.

DHS isn't bad. I didn't like it years ago but it has come a long way in the last five years. Wendy points out some good ones below too. Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a good one and so are the Muppets. We like Beauty and the Beast on stage also. They just didn't make it to the top 5. I don't know if they are still doing it but my oldest loves the High School Musical performance.

Good choices! I've heard and read great things about TSM. My list could change too. Thanks for the info on how to post pics of products. Here are the crocs I'm buying for DD3. There's a good deal at crocs.com outlet.



DD8 wants these


I need to jump back over there and finish the transaction. I had to jump off earlier...
