I don't subscribe to intercot; but, I went and read your link...that just seems so confusing!!! I only subscribe to the disboards and it seems I am quite content to stay here. I love my disfriends and I just don't have time to play somewhere else!

If it doesn't get locked by the time I get home, I will post too! They upgraded my computer last night, so I've lost all my things I had "saved" here at the office and I don't remember what my password was on Intercot (I remember the DIS since I spend most of my time here).

I, personally, like the long running trip report...I very seldom go back to one that is done as separate threads...too confusing for this old lady.

I appreciate all of your support. You know, I'm not upset upset like the boo-hoo crying upset. Just kind of peeves upset. I have a lot of readers over there that I really enjoyed talking to. Don't understand the over-moderation. Anyway, I'm starting a new trip report over there and we'll see how it turns out.

Hey, Lisa! I am all caught up now. Yay! First of all, I'm glad for the good news from both mom and BIL. HE has truly worked a blessing in your family. I hope for continued good reports from both of them.

I love the luau report and the post-luau report. You got some really great pictures and it looks like you all had such a nice time. And can I just say how pretty you looked all dressed up? Lacey, too. What pretty dresses! And I love how yours matched John's. I can't believe he went for it, though. DH won't even wear the same color as me, lest someone think we're trying to "match". What a goober he can be!

Intercot. What can I say? I'm just glad I found DIS first!

It got locked. I think it's mostly that one moderator. I haven't felt her being freindly once yet.

Why does this not surprise me. I know they close threads here if they don't stay on topic, but not as severely as they do over on Inter. Thank goodness both of your reports are here for me to read.

My husband is a choreographer/dance professor (ballet & some modern) so is very picky about dance performances, but he loved it!

We went to Hawaii last May and went to a luau at one of the bigger hotels, and in some ways I think it wasn't as cool as the one at Disney, though the dancers were fabulous and we got to eat fish cooked in an underground oven.

I'm glad your mother and BIL are doing better. Too bad that a lot of medical types like to "diagnose" things they aren't qualified for!
I would so love to go to Hawaiian sometime. I'll get there one day. Given your husband's dance experience, it's nice to hear that he liked the luau at Disney.

By the time I got to the outside metal platform, I was almost a total wreck. I just hate heights!

And I'm with you...I hate snakes.
I want to eat at Ohana next year so I am going to file the elevator location away in my notes.

Lacey said she wasn't too afraid of the snake mostly because it was nearly all the way in the shrubbery when she realized what it was.

Welcome aboard! It's never ever too late to jump in on my trip report! As you can see, we are a really crazy bunch. (and I'm not just talking about my true family)

Hopefully, I can get another installment posted tomorrow.

Great update - the luau looked like lots of fun and all of y'all looked great matching!

Keep the updates coming ~ can't wait for more.

Both Mama and my brother-in-law are in need of continued prayers. Thanks so much!

We did have a great time at the luau. It was so different than anything we have ever done at Disney.

Thanks for the compliment on the picture. We hardly ever "dress up" while on vacation and it felt pretty good. I was surprised that John would go for the coordinating outfits. But, he was the one who insisted that we do it. I doubt he would do it every day at Disney though.

I don't dislike the people on Intercot. I have had a lot of great people reading my report and we got along quite well with them. I just don't understand the over moderation.

They didn't close my 2nd trip report (yet) but they did close the thread that asked why my first report was closed. I kind of wonder if it was because I had people backing me up.

Kathy, I know that I've seen some reports closed on here too but not like they do over on the other boards.

The luau was a lot of fun. I was actually a little worried about it but am glad we decided to go. Thanks for the compliment. The kids were afraid we'd look "stupid" dressed the same. But, when we got there, they saw that a lot of people were doing it.

Good morning everyone. Hope everyone's day is good and you are not getting more rain. Our leaves are starting to turn and yes it will rain today. But it is real pretty out my window. This is what I see. I'm on the 4th floor. The trees are kinda hard to see sorry.

Have a good Dis Day

Good morning. I can see the tree. Our trees have looked like that for about three or four weeks now, and 50% of our two big trees leaves are on the ground or in bags in our garage. (: I still haven't gotten used to being home where it has averaged 48 degrees (it should be 60-65) since we got back as opposed to the wonderful 90s we had in Florida.

Hope you have a great Dis Day too.

Hi Kathy, I see you are north of me by about 10 hours. My mom is from a little town called Farmer City and my brother lived in Rockford for many years. I'm glad I'm not further north. I hate winter. There are not many things I hate in this world but that is #1 for me. I think my DH gets the leaf blower and sends all the leaves to the neighbor. Now since they have no trees you would think they would catch on but so far (3 years) they haven't. Lucky Don.

You have a great day. I really will work now.
