What a great idea. Make sure to post when you come up with ideas!
Hi Kayce! Thanks--I thought it was a fun way to think about the things we want to do. I know our daughters are similar ages--it will be interesting reading your TR to see how your trip goes and how Bella reacts. You are planning a TR too, right?

Trust me, you dont wanna miss this ride it is fantastic!!! It is one of our favorites.

Especially on a hot Disney afternoon, it is always nice to get out of the heat and relax in the ice cold a/c. Trust me, once you do this attraction it will be somewhere near the top of your list .

Love the plans so far though!!!
We did Mickey's Philharmagic the last time we went--we liked it though DH does not remember it. DD has never experience 3D so it is something to think about and I know my MIL will not be able to go into it. We shall see...

Thanks Janine--it is slowly shaping up. I sure it will change some--it is too far away for it not, right!

Part of me is wondering if they will be doing the same with MNSSHP (cut back on the number of times).
Yes, we went a couple nights before the cruise. I believe it was on 9/22? Before the 2009 dates were out, I looked at the 2008 dates. They were pretty much identical. I definitely think you'll have a date or two for MNSSHP during your stay. I want to go to that again because we missed a lot of the trails last time!

Hello!!! Sounds like your planning is coming right along!!! I want to start disney nights up soon too. I did them for my last trip and I did the same thing you were saying. Some weeks were more involved than others, but either way the kids enjoyed it every week.

I also put together a list before our last trip and i'll definitely do it again for this one, on what we HAD to see, what we didn't want to see and so on. It really worked, we made sure we did everyone's must dos and then went from there.

Yay, I am glad there are others who like to try to plan a list like me. I think it will help ME not feel so overwhelmed while there. Especially given we have not been there but one time so we really do not know our way around all that well. I am sure I will be studying maps before we go!

Disney Theme nights: I think I am going to do them once a week starting at our 26 week mark. I do not think I am necessarily follow the alphabet--but I definitely may try if I can get organized enough to do so. We are working with Lilian on it.

We've booked 2 rooms at POP. My dad and step-mom are joining us . I'm going to book BBB and probably CRT for breakfast. Our day at Epcot will be Akershus for breakfast and Coral Reef for dinner. We'll get there hopefully around 11AM on the 27th and head to downtown disney. I think we only want to visit MK and Epcot. The 28th will be MK day and then we'll go to Epcot on the 29th. I'm so excited but it seems so far away...lol. I seriously hope free dining is offered. That would rock

Scrappie J to my PTR!! I am so happy to have you over to it. It would be nice since we will be there on her birthday, but it is ok. I am hoping for free DDP still.

Snow pictures!!!

I am finally getting around to posting some pictures of the snow we had this past week. The first two pictures are of the yard--not too much snow!! Only about 5 inches fell with another couple already there before.



The second two are of Lilian playing in the snow. We love to play with beach toys in the snow too! Lilian in the second picture was saying how cold the snow was!!



I thought I would share some other fun pictures. Lilian loves make-up and is playing with it already!! We let her play with it here in the house but she does not wear it out. She will dress me up too but this is when she put it on herself!



Last, but I think is so cute, here is Lilian watching a show this past week and lounging! I liked how comfy she looks!



Thanks for indulging me with personal pictures! I am hoping to get another trip update posted this week--EP's Our Wishes, No Thank Yous and Sprinkles.

Great pics Stephanie! Love the snow covering your yard...I'm jealous of course. The makeup and lounge pics of Lilian are really sweet. They are so fun at 3 & 4. Sometimes I wish I could freeze time. It goes by so fast.

On a side note, school was out again today and they called it for tomorrow also! There isn't anything on the road at all anymore so I really don't get it. Crazy stuff. We have now missed 4 days of school for 1.5 inches of snow.

Cute pictures! That's how my nephew sits when he watches tv haha. The only difference is that he has one arm behind his head.

Leanne: 1.5 inches and 4 days out! Wow!! But then again, if the roads are freezing and slick, I can understand.

Thanks everyone!! She is a hoot (most days) and definitely has her moments.
