I'll get a bunch more this summer - hopefully some more of the building and interior design. That's really a beautiful place all around.
Now that you mention it, I do vagulely recall an incident where Tigger stole your sunglasses. I believe I was more of a lurker her on the TR boards at that point. Which trip is it - Over the river and through the Fun? I'll check it out-thanks MeMom!

Rain, rain go away…

Sitting here sipping coffee from my mug (a gift from the newbie mom whose nickname for me is Tink)



and thought a short update about nothing would be fun to write so here it goes.

ADRs are now complete. We will be dining together each day except Friday. The Spragues will be going to Askerhuis for breakfast with the Princesses and we will be at 1900 Park Fare.
I am grateful that my boys have finally agreed to let Mom have her breakfast with one of her two fav characters~ Mary Poppins.

A few updates re the trip: We now have car/van service booked. Being one short of a Grand Gathering this trip, we had to move to the next level of transport. I didn’t realize how much space 7 and their luggage needed! As Dad says, we are planning to do laundry once during our 10-day voyage, but DS will need at least 6 t-shirts to get him through the first 3 days alone!

Last weekend we purchased DS’ new crocs. He chose the colour, maybe he's been secretly DISing: (I think we’ll need to pick up a few more Disney Jibbitz to add to them)




Year end will quickly be upon us at this end of the Great White North. Paperwork, paperwork paperwork! We have a few activities planned for our students for the last two weeks: Field Days, trip to local activity camp, awards ceremony, etc. Only 15 school days left!

Moving into plan mode for my trip to Memphis in July. Preparing our presentation, taking many stills and interviewing kids to share their thoughts. But soon, oh soon, we’ll be seeing...

The Disney Store in Nashville had a bucket of Jibbitz on clearance by the register. Don't know if you have one close. You might want to check it out.

You better hope he hasn't been Dising or else he might find out that the big you-know-who's went you-know-where without the little you-know-who!!

But I'll never tell.

Your Tink cup is cute. Meal time is so much more fun when you have little friends on your dinnerware.

I think we have decided to change our plans for the Four Parks day. We're not going to do the dinner package after all. After reading a lot of posts where people were saying there is no real advantage to it any more, we switched our agenda a little. We're going to see it on another night, but we'll just get counter service and go over and get in line with the masses. A lot of people are saying that even with the package, you're still having to get in the regular line at an hour to an hour and a half out, so I don't see the point of getting the package and paying extra.

Are your friends showing any growing excitement about the trip?

P.S. Do you want us to be on the lookout for any particular Jibbitz? We'd be glad to send you some, if we see them.

I wish! The closest one closed last year and the next nearest is 4 hrs away.
How's the new water fun working out?

I know you can keep a secret~ you're a teacher and a Mom afterall

I agree about the package if it really doesn't give you an advantage. Guess we'll enjoy our meal and line up with everyone.

I'm really not sure re the Jibbitz. Nothing in particular has been mentioned. Thanks for your sweet offer

Yeah ours closed last year too. Luckily the closest one is just an hour and a half and very close to MeMom so I still get to visit often. The water slide was a blast yesterday. Then we went and saw UP! It was super cute. Brooklynn wanted to get on it first thing this morning, but I told her no she had to get ready for church.

Signing on to hear about the trip. We're a year behind you. This Spring Dh and I left the kids behind. Now I have to wait until next year (actually Dh says 2011 but I'm working on him to bring that number down) to take the family again.

Did you let her play on after she got ready for church?

Love the Crocs-good color choice! When my DH saw the Castle on my computer he said "Ahhh, the Castle." I couldn't agree more. Great shot.

Nope, I'm not that crazy. I'm picking her up from school before lunch today. We have some friends coming over with their girls to play on it. She has no idea so that will be a fun surprise!

Love the cool CROCS, a great choice.

My DD wanted more Disney Jibbitz (castle in particular) so I purchased some on Ebay. Fairly inexpensive.

You may want to look on there, at WDW they are $4 each, if I remember correctly.

Pooksma I want to swipe that mug!! Just kidding, it's very cute.

Developments this week: With our CDN dollar starting to climb, newbie Dad thought he'd better pay off their trip. They are all set now.

I am still holding out for another week-hoping it will go even higher

And its a good thing I'm waiting too because...we just bought our first TRUCK.
Its not new-new to us though-and its got room for everyone. Exciting for people who have only ever own cars and SUVs.

Need some help with this idea...
I want to do an autograph book for DS that has a picture insert on one side and a place for the character to sign on the other. I'm not sure if this makes sense but if it does, can anyone offer suggestions? I think I may have to make something myself and from the most non-crafty person ever, this is a major deal!

Coming up this weekend...Jibbitz, a pool (?), soccer jamboree and UP.

I too am waiting to see if the dollar keeps climbing, something tells me it will, could we be so lucky to have it at par again

Congrats on the truck!!!

I bought my nieces autograph books that you are describing at the gift shop last year at ASMu (Ithink that's where I got them). I have seem photo albums like that too at Walmart....not sure if you want to buy or make
