Oh, and i do the pricing thing to alot. I haven;t for awhile and did some yesterday. I was shocked how much the price is going up for next year. I think the dining plan went up quite a bit. I thought it was like 40-42 this past March and now the site says for under $47. WOW. and the whole trip was just insanely expensive. I know we got a deal last year, but if there is no great deals this year, I know for sure we won't be going. Each year it has gone up, but each year we have added a day, but even last year 2 of our days were free. The trip alone this year would cost what last years cost along with the airfare last year. So I don't think things look good for us. I may look at cruises. Norgwegian is usually the cheapest, and if I can get DH talked into a 4 day one, we could go and stil lbe much cheaper than Disny. I would rather disney, but it may actually be nothing at this point. With his surgery and milk prices are down, I'm hearing alot of grumbling about money. We aren't in the poor house, but I sure don't want to put us there with a vacation either. LOL! OR have him at like we are because of it.

When I get home from the wedding shower, I'll respond to the posts.

In the meantime, did anybody notice the hidden Mickey in the "waiting on the pearl jewelry to be ready" installment?

I'll have to do a quick one because today is "church day" (that's what my kids used to call it) and I've got a wedding shower to go to . I don't know about ya'll but I don't like wedding showers. You have to try and balance your little punch cup on your hand while you eat little tiny sandwiches and pretend you are having fun. Yuck!

Now, the ones that wedding showers that I used to give were fun! We had either pounding showers......where you bring your favorite recipe and include all of the dry items used to make it....and you tell a story about you came to love the recipe. Or, I give the kind of shower where men and women come because you give a gift to the soon-to-be bride and one to the soon-to-be groom. The woman gets all the stuff to do in the inside work and the guy gets the stuff to do the outside work. (I did have to do a reverse one once.) I give those laid back....come in your jeans and t-shirt kind of showers. That's not the kind I am going to today.

Oh, and I started buying for our 2010 Disney vacation even though it's over 8 months away. Sam's had a lot of their clothes on sale. I bought John a button up shirt for just $4.81. It's looks like it will be nice and cool. They also had a lot of really cute shorts for just $4.81 but the smallest size they had was a 6 and I can't wear that. I needed either a 2 or a 4.

Okay, let me get to work on the installment. I don't have much time.

Lisa
We've called those a shower and a storm!
I was going to do that for Gwendolyn & Joe if they ever get married! but, at the rate they are going they are going to have everything before it ever comes (which is a good thing) last Christmas we bought them a bunch of kitchen stuff!
I've only been to one but it was alot of fun...

I'm so glad John was able to settle the situation with the lady customer. (When my mom and dad had the flower shop; evertime they went out of town something broke--I was always left with trying to fix something...the delivery van, the cooler, the A/C, etc.)
I love the two pics w/the lion; both poses were great!

Great update. I like China too. We really enjoyed it in May while doing the Kim Possible adventure.

Also, my son wants to know if you can post some pictures of Hunter's swords that he bought at Disney.

I'm glad John was able to work everything out with your customer. It's so hard to have to deal with something that is someone else's fault. I'm glad you were able to take care of it and get on with your vacation.

I love the acrobats in China too, and I KNOW Will is going to love them. That just seems like something that will be one of his "things". Christian will probably like them too, actually, so I'm sure we'll be watching.

My brother used to collect swords. He bought them in Disney every year too, although I think he always got them at DTD at the shop where they have all the crystal. He might have gotten one or two in Japan. I wonder if he ever figured out China was cheaper? I don't even know where they are now, but he had a bunch. I think it's cool that Hunter collects them too.

Glad you got Photobucket figured out. I love your pictures. What did Lacey's shirt look like?

Looking forward to the next installment...and no, I still haven't started packing. Not really. I mean I've had everything we don't use in every day life together for a while now, but there's nothing in suitcases. Maybe tomorrow...hopefully.

Good morning Lisa!

I'm glad the whole issue with John's customer worked out. I hope you didn't spend too much time dwelling on it and were able to just put it behind you and enjoy your day. I hate it when work interferes with family time!

Cool acrobat pics! When we saw them in April, they were performing inside and my pictures didn't turn out so great. They really are amazing!

That's a fun tradition Hunter has with the swords. Very cool! Isaiah and Hunter would be best of friends I'm sure!

Love the silly face pics!

Hope you have a great Monday!

Hi Lisa!!

Great update!! I'm glad everything worked out with John's customer. Just what you want to deal with while you're on vacation...huh??

Love the acrobat pictures in China--so cool!!! I know I keep saying it..but next time I hope to spend much more time in the WS exploring. The weather didn't cooperate last trip.

Great pictures of Hunter and Lacey!!

Once you have your pictures uploaded to photobucket, go to your album on their site. Underneath each picture, you'll see three links. Copy the bottom link and then come back and paste that link to your trip report. Should show up perfectly!

Love the pictures of the acrobats. I could watch them for hours. Hope the shower wasn't too bad.

I priced out our vacation a bunch of times using several different scenarios. The vacation will cost about $400.00 more than last year. But, that's without any discounts. I am keeping my fingers crossed that a special offer will come out during our time period. If I am remembering correctly, the dining plan went up about $3 or $4 per person.

I looked into the cruises this year. The cruise itself was cheaper than the vacation. But, we want to do several shore excursions and by the time I added those in, it cost way more than our Disney vacation.

I understand your worry about money. With John being self-employed too, I am right there with you. I am always keeping my fingers crossed that the next job comes along. Then, on top of being self-employed, we have to worry that his epilepsy doesn't cause problems.

The showers that I give are always fun. We dress casually and joke. I am really not into the stuffy wedding showers.

Thankfully, the guy made it out to be way worse than what it was. The lady/customer was not at all upset.

I think we like China so much because it's cheap. Doesn't that sound awful?

Hum? Let see, excessive Disney thoughts? Is that even possible?

I'll take some pictures of Hunter's swords tonight and post them tomorrow. They are really cool.

The lady was fine and dandy with John. I just hate it when somebody tries to put something off on someone else.....namely, John.

The acrobats are just amazing and very entertaining. I am sure your boys will love them.

We have also bought a sword for Hunter in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It's the one from Narnia and it is so cool. Well, it's not the actual one from Narnia but you know what I mean.

I am finding it funny that I didn't take pictures of any of our souveniers. You guys know that I like to take pictures of everything.

Don't worry! We left the office problems behind in no time at all. Of course, we fussed about the guy a little before moving on.

You know, I have honestly thought (I do that every once in a while.) that Isaiah and Hunter would get along. They seem to be laid back about a lot of things.

Just wait, we get another call from the guy later on in the vacation. Dumb bunny!

We usually try to take our time and actually explore the countries but this trip it was just too dang hot!

Me too! But, it always seems like we walk up during the middle of the show.
