Yes ma'am! I'm working on it, at any rate. I have mine and DH's and one smaller one for DS4. They are open in my bedroom floor and I am steadily adding more. Yes, we are very excited. DH, who never gets excited about vacation, gave me a countdown this morning. He said "only five more days to go!" I couldn't believe it - he always acts so nonchalant about vacations. I was very proud of him.

Okay, I'm off to read your update!

Okay, I read the update. Great job on the pics. You got EVERYTHING! I love that. I, sadly, don't think I got any of our villa on camera when we stayed in Saratoga Springs. I video-taped it, though, does that count?

Your kids are just too darn cute. I see lots of both you and your DH in them. I can just tell they're really great kids. CANNOT WAIT to see to the views!

I loving this TR! I just love the way I can see how close your family is. I have a new blended family and I hope that on our trip next month we will all be as close. The kids (or I should say teens) have no idea about the trip, we are suprising them by making them do a scavenger hunt the night before we leave! Cant wait for the next installment!

Hi Lisa and crew!

Just popping in to reveal another lurker (since about halfway through the last TR even). I've immensely enjoyed the reports as well as reading all the random chatter between them.

I have been wondering though, since you started this, how have your "uninvited office guests" been acting? Surprised to not hear about any stores upon your return.

At any rate, thanks so far for the entertainment and eagerly (but patiently) awaiting more .

New Camera? Sounds like a perfect excuse for another Disney trip! (Sept 2011 PTR/TR)

Great pics! I am getting so "home sick" for Disney right now! I love the updated CBR rooms! They look so peaceful with all the blue!

AWESOME pictures! Wow that makes me excited. 23 more days!!! Almost 22 even! Did I tell you guys that I've looked at hotels a couple of times to see if we could go halfway on Thursday? I KNOW I'm sad. We won't. They aren't expensive but Matt's check is going to be less than I thought on Thursday. Gotta pay those bills.

I haven't stayed at CBR in a REALLY long time and those rooms are really nice. I was this "-" close to getting Pirate rooms this time before Cole was coming. And I almost went back and changed to Pirate rooms. The kids would SO love them. But can't do the extra. And we can't do it in June because MIL is coming. Oh well. Someday. I hope you do the Pirates next time so I can see the rooms. A whole pirate themed trip would be SO much fun (pirate room, Pirate League, pirate cruise (the one that's just for kids), the nighttime Wishes Peter Pan cruise, MNSSHP. Too bad it's so close to my trip (and I don't have a bunch of extra money! LOL

Looking forward to more pictures!!!

It looks like you're just about ready to go. I'm so glad that your hubby is getting excited. John is kind of like that.....he doesn't say a whole lot about the trip but once we get on the road, he's just as excited as the rest of us.

If you can believe it, I took even more pictures of the room later on. I just hope they aren't amongst the 176 that were lost.

Thanks for the compliment on my kids. I've been really lucky....they rarely get mad at each other or get on one another's nerves.

We've always been a really close family. My side of the family are tight. John's....not as much. They love each other but they don't show it like my side does. I think that's why he makes such an effort to have as much quality family time as we can get.

I loved surprising Hunter with our trip to Disney last year. I don't, however, think that I could keep an entire trip a secret again. I'd love to hear more of your scavenger hunt details.
