If I wasn't leaving for Disney today, I'd be sad that the report is over too. I get into a major funk when our Disney vacations are over.

Don't worry, I'm coming back with tons of pictures and lots of details this go round.

Can't wait for your TR for this trip! I didn't comment much because I was always so far behind, but I really enjoyed reading it.
I'm glad that I was able to provide you with some entertaining reading material. I, too, hope that this trip is "uneventful".

Thanks for the prayers! We have a loooong drive ahead of us. Thank goodness we break it down in two stages or we'd be too bushed to have fun while at Disney. I'll definitely be thinking of all my Dis friends while there.

Lisa,
I already said good-bye, but I will say it one more time...

HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!!



See ya when you get back. Safe driving.
Thanks for the "Have a great time" wishes!

It was a great way to end our Disney vacation. I'm so glad that we went back so he could try again....and again....and again.

Okay, I'm jealous! You're leaving today! I wish you all safe travels and I hope you have a wonderful time. We'll be awaiting the TR when you get back.
You could totally tell from the pictures that he was so excited that he finally got chosen. I asked him what he was thinking about in the picture of him with his eyes closed and he said he was saying a "thank you prayer". Sweet boy!

Morning everybody!

As you all know, we are leaving for Disney today! 5 o'clock can't get here fast enough. I say that then when I am trying to make sure that everything on my desk is done, I'll be wishing for a little more time to get through with it all.

Lacey and Hunter went to his new school yesterday to have a look around. School starts Friday, August 14th, but we'll still be in Disney. We know the school office manager and she told them to come on over even though the school is still closed for the Summer. She took them all around the school, showed him the cafeteria, computer lab, etc.

She even gave him his school supply list. Of course, there will be a few things that aren't on there because each teacher will add additional items. But, at least we'll have the major stuff already. I knew he'd have to have loose leaf paper, pens, highlighters and such so I started buying stuff a long time ago. Lacey is taking Hunter to WalMart today to get the things I didn't already have. I do not want to go to WalMart the day after school starts. It's total chaos.....like the day after Thanksgiving a/k/a Black Friday. NOOOO WAY!

I made our window decoration last night. I didn't go all out. I just made a little sign that says "The McBride Family 14th Annual Walt Disney World Vacation" and then I left a space and at the bottom wrote "Do You Dis? We Do! Mickeystoontown here!" I printed it on lime green paper and then glued it on purple scrapbook paper. In the middle of the green paper, I glued a green Mickey head and on the corners, I glued different color Mickey heads. Not elaborate but it's still a decoration. I think, if I am not mistaken, I packed some Disney fairy window clings. I can't remember if I did or not. If I did, they are somewhere in one of the bags in the back of my car.

I got all of my reservation information, online check-in information, garden grocer order confirmation and the "extra" vouchers Disney sent in one big manilla envelope. I've already put it in the car.

The small ice chest, DVD player, CD/DVD holder, snack box and a few other small things are sitting on the kitchen cabinet just waiting to be tossed in the car.

I put all of my girly stuff in the "last minute" bag this morning. All John has to do is throw in his and Hunter's stuff. Lacey has her own "last minute" bag in her bathroom. Those will go in the car when I get home.

The trunk of the car will be full to the max when we get everything in there. John and I decided that if we think we won't have room for all of our souvenirs, we may just have them shipped home. I don't know how much it will cost but we'll definitely check into it and see if it's a possibility.

I left a checklist of things the family needs to do today while I am work. Just small things like turn on the dishwasher, put clothes in the dryer, go get ice, take out garbage....you know those kind of things.

I'm off to do a little work right now. We have three appointments today, one of which is the deadline that's due today. I hate to say it but the client is as dumb as dirt and we can't get it across to her that she has to get us documentation as to her monthly expenses or we can't include them. She thinks we can just include them but then have nothing to back it up.

Check back in with ya'll a little later.

I'd be super sad too if I wasn't going to Disney TODAY! Don't worry, I'm coming back with a lot more pictures and details so I can write another trip report.

It seems as if you are really ready to go. I don't think there is room for Mel on top of the car and I don't think she can run as fast as she would need if tied to the bumper. I know there is no room for me and all my junk so maybe you could send a picture to facebook with your phone once in a while. Oh wait, your own picture isn't even on it let alone any others. I'm just joshin with ya. Have a really great trip. Enjoy your wonderful children and have a very Happy Anniversary.

Ginny

Actually, I don't have one single thing on top of the car so Mel's still invited if she wants to come along! If you can make it to West Monroe by 5:00 p.m. today, you are welcome to ride along too. Ya think you can keep a grip on your suitcase while going 70 miles an hour?

Girl, you know that I am computer illiterate.....I don't know how to send anything from a phone to facebook. When I have phone problems, remote control problems, etc....I just hand the device to one of the kids and tell them to fix it.

I do need to get Lacey to upload a picture to my Facebook account before she goes back to Georgia. If not, ya'll have to wait until Christmas to see my face on there.

Don't make me doubt MY choice of POR. I'm already doubting it (even though I know we love POR) because the rest of my family is staying there...wait, did I say that out loud. Oops.

The good news is, we have 5, so we HAVE to have the Bayou. I'm hoping my brother and my parents get the mansions. I know. I'm awful.

If I could get to Monroe by 5:00, I'd ride on top.

There were a few of "you" on FB, so I waited until I looked at Connie's friend list before I sent you a request. So I knew I'd have the right one.

Only 6 hours and 15 minutes to go (assuming you are on Central Time...which I think you are)!

Hey Lisa - I'm excited your leaving today because that means I leave tomorrow! YIPPEE! A little sad that we aren't leaving today too - since that was our original plans, but I'll be happy that we are staying an extra day on the other end once we get there. I posted in my pre-trip report that I got my nails and toes done last night instead of tonight - might have to sign some papers tonight so I wanted to make sure I didn't miss out on getting my mani/pedi.

Bill is mostly packed, and we just have to get Ryan's haircut and maybe two pairs of shorts tonight. Then I think we are done. I'm hoping I can go to bed early tonight so I won't be tired tomorrow after work. They are coming around 4pm to pick me up!! YEAH!

I'll make sure to say hi if I see ya!! Have an awesome and magical trip!!! I feel like a kid today - all giddy with excitement - I can just imagine how your feeling leaving today!
