I think the rest of the group will agree - I wish you had had a trip report of the trip you just vaguely mentioned!

Great update

Can I ask you a side note: If I have a Akershus ressie for 8:10, what time would you be to the bus stop (staying at CBR)?

Great news about your mama and a great update!

I am about the bathroom pictures and even more about the faces of waiting for Hunter.

That would be Eric. We often yell in to see if he fell in.

Great update Lisa. I just knew when you posted those goofing off pix and saw John's first pic I was surprised he was not behind the fence. I should have known you were just teasing us.

Bathroom pix? We have always done that too. I think the first one of Sheri she must have been 12 and we were going to see Huey Lewis and the News. I've done it everywhere we go since. The only one I posted was when they were fixing their hair. The girls were yelling at me the whole time in there. Don't take our pictures. Thank goodness we were the only ones in there at the time.

Sounds like you may have a good weekend after all.

First of all, please please please know that all of your prayers are greatly appreciated! I told Mama that you all sent good wishes her way. She is glad that they went ahead and scheduled the surgery. She even asked if they could go ahead and do it today but they couldn't.

She got home today about 3:15 p.m. Right when I was pulling in from picking Hunter up from school. He actually asked me "when is Mama going to bust out of the hospital?" on the way to school this morning. So, it was a pleasant surprise to him when we got home at the same time.

She and I went through her calendar of "things to do" next week. She had a gas bill and some birthday cards that needed mailing out. I have them all dated and ready to mail. That's one less thing for her to worry about.

I know that I haven't responded to each of you personally but you ALL know that I thank you ALL.

So, without further ado, I will respond to those posts just since I posted the update.

Great update!! I love all your pictures! I can just be there through your pictures & stories! Love the one of the Caribbean Beach Bus!! LOL! Oh how I love it there! 2011 is SO far away! But it will be well worth the wait! Till then I will live through everyone elses vacations!
Me too! At least we know that it is going to be taken care of and she won't have to worry about it any more than she has to.

I look at our pictures and I think.....do we ever act serious? When we have to but certainly not at Disney World.

I wish I was lazing in a hammock chair on one of the CBR beaches right now. Calgon! Take me away!

2011 will be here before you know it! I often say that reading trip reports and looking at pictures keep me sane until my next WDW vacation!

Happy your mom made her decision; I'm sure she is relieved to have made that decision. Now, you have a week to help her get through everything she has at home to take care of before Monday!

we will continue to pray for you all
I swear that boy could stay in the bathroom for an hour if we'd let him! And, he comes in our bedroom bathroom most of the time too. Walks right past the one by his room.

Mama was happy that they went ahead and scheduled the bypass. Once it's done, she won't have to worry with it anymore!

I appreciate the continued prayers.

Thanks a bunch! We have such a fun time together. We really appreciate the time we get to spend with Lacey since we don't get to see her very often.

Hum...what time to catch a bus for a breakfast ADR? It took us about 10 minutes to go all the way around the resort and pull into Epcot and that was right before opening time. But, every time I book an ADR, the Disney castmember tells me to allow 45 minutes to an hour to get to an ADR. I'd probably say that too because you'll have to walk from the bus stop (hopefully not the middle of the parking lot like us.), go through security and then walk all the way over to Norway which is a bit of a hike.

Hey Shelly (Momof2DisneyBoys) did ya'll have any breakfast ADRs that you had to get to when you stayed at the CBR? I can't remember.

Even though Mama still has to undergo surgery, we are already relieved to know that her condition isn't life threatening.

I have other bathroom pictures but I'll have to find them. We are so crazy!

Hunter is the slowest pooper I know. Drives me nuts! What is it with boys?

I could tell when I was taking Lacey and Hunter's pictures that John had something up his sleeve. That boy acts a fool all the time!

Oooh Huey Lewis and the News! I love them! Lacey and I had THE best time taking those pictures even if we knew we would never show most of them to anybody but us two.

I sure do hope that our weekend is much better than the week itself was. I hate those kinds of weeks.

Yep! We usually head out to the bus stop around 7:15 for an 8:00am ADR. And we have always been there in plenty of time.

Good morning Lisa. Hope your day is going well. Sounds like you accomplshed a lot at your mom's last night. That is good. I know it helped her a lot to get those things taken care of.

Hope your weekend is good

Lisa,

I'm so glad that your mom decided to do the surgery. I'll be thinking of her and keeping her in my prayers.

Another great update!!! I love all the pics in the Seas w/ Nemo and Friends!!

I thought I remembered you having an early ADR but wasn't sure.

Good morning,

I got up bright and early this morning (why can't I ever sleep late on a weekend?). John has gone to help his Dad work on a house that they bought in a nearby town. It's over 100 years old and needs a good bit of stuff worked on. John is the only boy (out of 5) that knows what to do with a hammer so those kind of tasks always fall to him.

I'm going over to look at your pictures now.

Have a good weekend.

I'm glad she made the decision too. If she hadn't, then she would be worried about it.

I appreciate each and every prayer we can get.

We didn't get to browse a whole lot while in the Seas like we usually do but we still had a good time.

I was about 3 days behind. So glad your mom and bosses mom are doing OK. You'll be in my thoughts this week!
Love the update. My son was always the same way. I swear we would be ready to leave and he would say wait I gotta go to the bathroom and after 10 minutes I would start yelling. Why does it take so long! LOL!
