At any rate, thanks so far for the entertainment and eagerly (but patiently) awaiting more .
Hip Hooray! You've come out of the world of lurkdome. I'm glad that you've decided to join in. Don't you just love the chit chat that we do on my reports?!? We've all become friends through the Disboards.

I have actually grown accustomed to our office "guests". There's always a door locked or unlocked, knocking and, of course, cigarette smoking. As long as they don't do anything mean to me, I can handle it.

I know what you mean about being "home sick" for Disney. I think I'd go insane if I didn't have this trip report and the reports of the other Disboard members.

The rooms are actually quite peaceful even with the bright colors.

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!!!
I wish you could have left on Thursday too. Oh well. Ugh for Matt's check being less than you thought. That's a bummer! But, like you said, the bills have to be paid.

I've looked at the pirate rooms and the vacation would cost over $300.00 more for them. I haven't decided yet if it would be worth it or not. If we do book one, I know that I'll probably do some kind of pirate themed trip like you said.

Thanks for coming over. I see that you've got a trip coming up soon. I bet you're extremely excited.

We are a pretty fun family. There's hardly a dull moment when you're with us. That being said, John does get a tad upset with us on our first day at Epcot. I'll post details later.

The update was excellent. I love those corner rooms. Don and I had one at CSR. The girls were on either side of us. But I guess those cm's knew who was important. They make the room seem bigger and all that light. Well all those clouds and rain drops. Lucky you on your upgrade. Totally excellent.

I had the day from somewhere not on this earth. No computer, no internet. It was the pits. I swear it lasted 42 hours. I came home, took a nap and Don fixed his own dinner. What a good man.

Now that I've replied to all of the recent posts, I'll share my blooper of the night.

My boss' birthday is tomorrow. It's also his dad's. They don't eat any kind of sweets with the exception of pound cake. I'm the baker of my family and John's family. Any time there is a get-together (mostly on my side 'cause any time John's side gets together, there's usually some kind of squabble however little it may be ), I'm always the one who brings a homemade, made from scratch dessert.

I come home from work tonight, make homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. Nothing fancy, just something that was quick so I could start on the pound cake.

I had already picked out a recipe from my Paula Deen (or is it Dean?) cookbook. I get it all mixed up and the mix tastes really good. I pour it into my pan and put it in the oven to cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes. I go in there about 15 minutes ago and the entire middle of the cake has fallen flat. When I say flat, I mean flaaaaaaat. The sides are still up top and the middle is super dooper sunk in. Crapadelic! I've never had a pound cake do that.

It's lookin' like the old bossman won't be getting his pound cake tomorrow 'cause it's 9:27 p.m. and I ain't mixing up another cake this time of night. Oddball and the raccoons, on the other hand, will be having cake tonight.

I'm sure Oddball and the racoons will enjoy.

Lisa that is terrible. You poor dear. It is so aggravating. The price of the ingrediants, the work put into making it and then boom. Total disaster. I guess you will get a veggie tray. Put a candle in it. What did you get him for his birthday? I'm the worst birthday picker outer ever. I always get my boss a gc to the bike shop.

Oh! Lisa; so sorry to hear about your cake!
I don't bake especially from scratch;but, I love to cook!
your soup sounds good; I never ate tomato soup until we ate at "Earl of Sandwich" at DTD. Ashton is our soup eater, I may need your receipe.

have a great night!

Mornin' Lisa! Looking forward to hearing more about your adventures in Disney today. Happy Birthday to the boss man. Sorry about that cake. It always happens like that, doesn't it? The most important cakes, the ones that JUST CAN'T MESS UP, always mess up! Arrrggh! I bet Oddball was glad tho.

I can't remember if you posted pictures of the CSR in your trip report. If ya did, I'm going back to take another look. Gotta keep my options open.

I know what you mean about looooong days and nothing turning out right. Hate thosek inds of days. Hopefully, today will be better.

John and I nibbled on it last night and it didn't taste bad at all. A little packy but it tasted good. We will probably just throw out the rest.

The boss will just have to wait until another day to get a pound cake.

I told you I'd be here first thing! I'm all caught up...all 15 pages!

First...so exciting that Lacey is able to join you. I can't imagine what it will be like to take vacations without all 3 boys. That time is quickly approaching though...time sure flies. My oldest, Dan, starts HIGH SCHOOL in a couple of weeks!

Second....so uncanny how Lacey looks just like you and Hunter looks just like John! WOW!!

I am so sorry that your family had to witness the horrific accident on your drive to WDW. I'm sure it would have played in my mind over and over as well. So sad. I remember when I was very young, my parents witnessed a similar accident on the highway and they have not forgotten it to this day. (Thankfully my brothers and I were asleep.)

I LOVE that 20 Questions game! We got it for the boys a few Christmases ago and that thing is CREEPY!!! We even got it to guess "booger"....okay so it said phlegm, but that's close enough! Crazy thing!

Love the pics of your room at CBR! We got a corner room at POR as well and the extra window really does make it seem bigger. I love all the detail pics of the room. I'm always so excited to be there, that I don't take enough pictures of the room.

Just have to say that your family is awesome! I love that you laugh and joke and are silly together...you remind me of us! We all just get a kick out of the same crazy stuff....and we laugh about it for weeks! And we are big on tradition as well...we would so stop at the same McDonald's every trip just for tradition's sake!

Can't wait to hear more about this fabulous trip!!!!

I was aggravated. I usually am quite good with desserts. Who knows what happened.

I'm going to take another stab at a pound cake but probably won't do it until this weekend. Heck, I've gotta go buy more eggs before I can start. This one took 6!

My boss is hard to buy for. He and his family are all really active recycle people. They never buy books new. They hit up book sales and library sales or he goes on Amazon and orders them used. He likes old Sci-Fi stuff so I stopped by Cracker Barrell on my way home last night and got Volume I and Volume II of Twighlight Zone. It was my lucky day because they had all their DVDs, buy one/get the second half off.

I absolutely love to bake. At Christmas time, I have an entire day that I do nothing but make sweets. Then, I put them on platters and John and Hunter deliver them to our nextdoor neighbors for Christmas. I also make candies and cookies for John's customers. Never hurts to remind them that we appreciate their business and to come back for more.
