I'm here!!!

Seeing all the stuff you made for your Mom again when you surprised her brought tears to my eyes. I'm such a sap! But, really, what a WONDERFUL surprise!

Sorry to hear about the rough night of sleep-ugh. I don't like early morning flights for that reason--I can't ever seem to sleep the night before Disney.

And leaving the boys!!! But, I'm happy to read everything was fine and no bus issues!! What a relief.

That is AWFUL about your sister's rental car. What a pain!!

Very fun with the pixie dust at DTD-you guys are off to a great trip, full of pixie dust...literally! (sorry, had to!)

Love that VB pattern...it's fun, bright and vacation like! Which bag do you have?

I didn't notice them unti you said something about them!! LOL!! I collected them that week and brought them home to him, plus Brook had sent me some, too. He LOVED them, they were everywhere!!! I love that!!

Hey! Thank you, love that pic, too! Those ears are so cute...I went back and forth deciding if we should just let him pick out his own in a few years and my DH convinced me he'd never know the difference...so I went with it. He loves them and looks so cute in them!!!

Hi Brook!
Yay, you're here!!!

We made the best of the rough night sleep.....oh well, we were off to Disney! and you're right you can never really sleep that great the night before anyways, even at home!

I know....leaving the boys was SO hard!! We just had to get out, and then I could deal. I cried a bit but did okay. There are a few times I cried...stay tuned and you'll see, but I think we all expected that!!

About the pixie dust.....you're right though. Stay tuned!!

Yes, I did a trip report and it is finished! I was the mom with the two little ones in the double stroller holding up the bus lines. My son's stroller had a "stroller as a wheelchair" tag issued by Disney. He is special needs. He also had a guest assistance card. It was an orange and brown stroller. We made lots of people mad by taking the stroller in the back of the bus. I would loved to have waited in the normal line with a healthy son, but I will take him the way he is. I have learned to accept the stares and rude comments. He is my little miracle. Do come over and read my report. We had lots of fun and some special magic on our trip! Now his Wish trip is 35 days away and we are back at Disney!

Great trip report soo far! I'm loving it! That sucks about the car rental. It always seems like car renting is always a pain. I'm glad it turned out alright though. I loved your pop pics of your room. It's pretty much like mine was. hehe and YAY for getting what you requested. That doesn't always happen.

I want my own mickey ears! I swear next time I'm going to find that store and make them!

So I left you with Mom and I browsing the World of Disney....I just love everything about this shop....some of our sights....






We then decided to head back out and grab a refreshment....it was about 2 or so at this time.

Mom on our way out....




Amazing what you can do with Lego's!


We headed over to one of the drink booths (sorry, didn't catch the name....) to sit and relax and call Jodi to see where she was at this point. Mom got a margherita and I opted for a nice, cold Rum runner. Boy my drink was STRONG! I had taken a few sips and had to go back and ask for some more juice....I would have been DONE if I continued drinking it the way that it was!! And we still had a long afternoon ahead of us...





Don't mind how exhausted I look but here I am enjoying my drink!


We were sitting on the water, we had a great view and we found a new friend....I took this because I knew the boys would love it!!


Our views- I really wanted to do this but when called Jodi and found out that she was less than an hour away at this point! YAY!




So we sucked up our drinks and headed out....we were finally going to see Jodi and get our party started!!!! Mom was beside herself at this point, she was SO excited to see Jodi, it had been since February since we had seen her and this was her dream come true, to have both her girls together again!
