As for Tyler and the cookies, I had to keep them up on top of kitchen cabinets where I had to have a ladder to reach them. He could not open the sealed cases, but any cases that were open had to be kept up high. He only opened one box before they were moved and luckily it was one we had ordered!

Have fun!

More Updates!

Tyler's Dream Volunteer just called. She wanted to know if we were getting excited about our trip. I told her tonight Tyler saw a Disney World pirate's commercial on TV and said, "Wanna Go!" Since Tyler only says so few words, she was very excited about this. She asked if we got our travel papers from Disney and I told her I got them yesterday. I also told her that I fixed the problem with their airline. She told me that she was going to mail down our itinerary for our trip, a Disney book and a small backpack for Tyler around the second week of November. She apologized for not driving down, but since it could be winter weather since did not want to risk it by herself. She also said that her husband is ill and she needs to be home with him. They are both older and I completely understand that! We talked about meeting up at one of the other Dream Factory events. I guess the Christmas movie is on a Friday night so we will probably miss that since it takes almost 3 hours to drive to KC. I guess we may meet her at the Royals game next spring. She also asked if I would send her a picture from the trip. I told her I would print a bunch of pictures and mail them to her. It is the least I can do after they granted him his Dream Trip! Now we are just counting down to the trip! 29 Days!

Well Hayley came down with some sort of stomach bug and I managed to get it. I thought I was going to never leave the bathroom yesterday. It did not help that the dye they injected for my MRI yesterday could cause stomach upset too. I took some Imodium and I am starting to feel human again, but I am not ready to eat anything yet. It never affected Hayley too bad, except for the nasty diapers.

This morning I am supposed to be coaching my two soccer teams. Bre played at 10 and Tyler at 10:45 and they were their last two games. Tylerís team is made up of four year olds and they only play four kids at a time on a little tiny field. They are so cute. I had to send my husband to coach in my place. I hope he can learn the kidsí names quickly!

So, while I am at home sick with Hayley I have come up with some more Christmas decoration touring plans that will not affect our park time.


Here we go!

Saturday, Nov. 21st is 4:30 Yak and Yeti reservations. Then we will take a bus to the Beach Club to see the Gingerbread Carousel: http://www.wdwinfo.com/Photos/Holida...t-08/index.htm Then we will walk over to the Boardwalk and look at their decorations. I could not find ant pictures of them. Next, we will catch a bus to DTD and look who was there starting on the 15th of November last year: http://www.wdwinfo.com/holidays/chri...own_disney.htm We will look at decorations and go shopping before calling it an early evening.


Sunday, Nov. 22nd is our 8:20 breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at the Polynesian. The decorations here do not seem to be as elaborate: http://www.wdwinfo.com/Photos/Holida...y-08/index.htm Before we take the monorail to a park for the day we will head to the Grand Floridian via monorail to check out their gingerbread house. It is in the link above with the Contemporaryís pictures too! I guess we will stop by the Contemporary on our tour too to see the Pinocchio decorations. I just realized that we donít have Chef Mickey reservations. Tyler must have eliminated that one when he was picking. We have never gone and not eaten there so this will be a first.

What do you think of my tour? Do you think we should take a break on our MK day and take the boat to Wilderness Lodge to look at their decorations?

I decided to add a few more photos. I went to upload some pictures to my Facebook page today for my brother. He purchased this giant monkey for Hayley last time he came to visit and then grandma gave her some monkey PJs. The monkey now goes everywhere with her.





While I was doing this I was thinking about how I wish I had taken some photos of Tylerís first time playing soccer. Most of the games it was so cold or I was focused on coaching so I could not take photos. I opened up the memory card and there were about 10 pictures from his game on Saturday when I was sick. My husband is in the pictures, so my daughter must have taken them for me. She is so thoughtful! I just had to share two of them!

Oh no! So sorry you got a bug. MRI?? Is that something new? I hope you are ok!

I missed this the first time you posted it. Glad you posted again so it would come to the top of my threads and I could read it.

Your plans look great! I think you will like seeing all of the decorations. I am so hoping that we are able to see some on our December trip!

I really wanted to keep this thread about Tyler, but I started getting headaches about three weeks before we moved. We moved Aug. 10th. I thought it was just from the stress of the move. However, they will not go away. I went to the minor emergency center right before our trip and they gave me a shot that they said should break the cycle and make them stop. However, I got one at Disney. It was the day I had to miss riding EE. Then about a week after I got home I went back to the doctor got another shot and a prescription. Another week later and I went to my regular doctor. She said to stop taking the first medicine and all Tylenol. I went a week with no medication and lots of pain. I had an MRI last Friday and I won't have the results for a week. I had another headache on Saturday and another one today. I just hope they figure out what is causing them soon so they go away for good. They start on either the left or the right side and then move to the whole head and feel as if someone is pressing a crown of thorns into your skull. It just feels as if I could release the pressure, I would feel so much better. I have never had headaches before and I will be glad to see these go. I do have Lortab now, but I can only take that when my husband is home since it knocks me out! I will get better soon!

I've just very recently began reading this ptr and obviously been totally lurking! But, just wanted to send some good thoughts and prayers your way, along with hugs! Headaches, and what you are describing sound like doozies, and the stress, can be so tiring and draining. Know you want to be 100% for your son's wish trip, too, so I hope you get some answers pretty quick here and that they can help you to be pain free soon! Anyway, just wanted to send some good vibes your way! Take care and feel better soon!

I understand wanting to keep the thread about Tyler - but his Mom being healthy is very important for Tyler, too.

I am so sorry that you are in pain. I really hate that. Hopefully the MRI will give the medical team an idea of what is going on so they can get you feeling much better soon!

Thank you for all of the well wishes. The MRI came back normal today so I am waiting to hear from the doctor as to what the next step is.

A Big Give package came today. The mail person had to deliver it to my door since it had some problems making it to us. The exterior shipping paper was mostly shredded and there was a hole in the middle of the box. The contents were fine with the exception of the beautiful Mickey Mouse picture. He is missing the middle of his face and I am sure a little one spent lots of time making it for Tyler.

I must warn you that I love to take pictures. I tried to make Tyler and Hayley wait until Breanna got home to open the box, but it was not going to happen today. So I made them sit on the couch and open it together. Then after it was all open, we wrapped up about three of the items in the undamaged tissue paper and set them aside so Breanna can be surprised when she gets home from choir practice tonight.

Here are Tyler and Hayley with the package:







A princess wand:





Tyler was so excited to get a Carís lanyard for his pins! He loves to trade pins!



Then they check out more goodies:







The Journal is simply amazing. I canít say thank you enough for it. Each page is customized to what we are doing that day. There are special pages for each of our dining reservations. It is gorgeous! I took several pictures so everyone else could see the talent and time that went into this journal.









Tyler decided to read the Coloring Book. He loves to look at pictures in books over and over.





The package came in the middle of lunch. After the package and lunch, Tyler was tired. He fell asleep in front of the front door. His blanket looks funny since this is his 5 lb. weighted blanket. My husband swears it feels like a 20 lb. blanket when you try to lift it, but I only sewed 5 lbs. of pellets in it. He uses it to go to sleep. Sometimes he still uses his baby 1 Ĺ lb. blanket. That is the only thing I know how to do with my serger is to sew weighted therapy blankets. I am sure that someday I will discover another use for it.



My husband had to work late tonight and Tyler had gymnastics. Aaron and Breanna checked out the box together. I am not sure who was more excited! Here are some more pictures:









Aaron turned on the glow fingers for Tyler. He thinks they are so much fun. The flash from the camera made the lights not show up so much.



Thank you Jodi from Ontario, Canada! I do not know your Dis username and I will replace your real name with it if you would like.

You are so very welcome! My daughter is upset that the damage to the box put a hole into her picture, but that's the mail I guess!

I hope that you guys have a great time. My family and I will be there in November also but will leave just before you arrive, it would have been so nice to be able to meet you!

Glad that you like the journal, I'm hoping to find the time to make one for myself, but time before we leave is getting tight!

Take good care of your precious family!

It looks like something wet got set on the top of the box. Tell your daughter the picture is still beautiful and Tyler said, "Mickey" when he saw it. The picture is going in a scrapbook from the trip. We love the thought and time that went into it and do not mind the hole. It is too bad we will miss you by a few days! Good luck getting your journal done!

Thank you!

I have a new dilemma! All of the hours for the parks have changed for the week we are going. For example, the Magic Kingdom is open until 3 on the 22nd! I know that the kids won't make it that long, but I might go back after they are in bed and explore on my own. My husband would stay with the kids. Bre might want to come along too. I scheduled us to go to AK on the 21st and it is the only day that week that that park closes at 5 pm. Should I leave AK on this day and hope that everyone else will want to go on a day that this park is open later? Also, I have a reservation for breakfast at 8:10 am on the 25, the day we go home, at the Crystal Palace since the plan was to arrive before the park opens, but now the park opens at 8 am. Should I try for an earlier reservation? How early does the baggage check at the hotel open so I can check our bags. We are staying at All Star Sports. Help!!!!!
