I LOVE this!! What other incentive does another mom of 2 boys need to start planning another family trip to the world?

I've loved your TR and getting the chance to "meet" your family. I'm looking forward to your PTR and even more to meeting you for real in May!

Isn't it true about kids and their bickering? We definitely have our fair share of that in our home too. But, at Disney it was better. The spirit must invade these kids! LOL! You had such a wonderful trip. I'm sad that it's over. I had so much fun reading along with you and your gang!

Thanks for the tips on a Disney Christmas! I plan to take a trip during Christmas some day.. and I'm glad to see that the good out-way the bad because Christmas time scares me with all the crowds.

I was a few updates behind...sounds like you had a great last full day and part day despite the sicknesses that hit the family. I'm glad to hear the boys made a quick recovery for the Wishes cruise!

Your Beverly pics are some of the BEST I have ever seen on the DIS! So hilarious!!!! I wish I had been there to laugh along with it all...hopefully our paths WILL cross in the future.

Your B&TB pics confirm it, I MUST GET A ZOOM LENS! Where is the "green with envy" smiley?

I've enjoyed every moment of your TR, thank you for taking the time to share it with all of us! I will be on the lookout for a PTR link for your May trip!

SO much fun to write these! Well I know a few people who have fun!!!

I really want to hear about the F & G show and what you are planning! Looking forward to it!
Yep, you guys twisted my arm! I finally got it started today - I'll post the link when I'm done with my replies

I'm looking forward to the F&G show too! I printed out the brochure the other day and I'm hoping to go over it with Mom this weekend.

I'm sure they're still better than most , but the mention of their bickering makes them ... human! Haha.

I can't believe your trip is over! I really want to . Looking forward to the PTR and then the new TR!
Yeah, I only WISH that got along that well all of the time! I have to put them in separte rooms several times a week!

Michelle, I had a great time reading your TR---loved hearing all about the special details you added to make your trip so special for Don and your boys.

Now........I'm ready for a PTR!
Thanks so much for reading along Michelle! It really was a special trip, and since it was probably the last for us as a family for awhile, I'm really happy with how it all came together.

PTR coming right up!

Have a great time with your Mom in the World in May! Those memories are so special. I took my parents on their last trip to Disney in January 2009. My Mom has Alzheimer's and she's now confined to a nursing home but I've got pictures and memories from trips through lots of years and they are now priceless!!
Thanks so much reading! I think everyone should experience Disney at Christmas at least once, it truley is wonderful

I'm sorry about your mom My Grandmother has Alzheimers, it's such an awful disease. It is wonderful to look back at the memories though, those are the things to hold on to!

I don't know what it is about vacation that cause my kids to get along, but I wish it would translate into everyday life!

Thanks for reading Kelli! I hope you'll come join me on my PTR.

The crowds can be a bit much at times, just make sure you go into it with the right attitude and you'll be fine!

Aren't those Beverly pic great?! Thats one of the great things about the DSLR, the fact that it will take a bunch of pics in a row - allows you to capture those things! We'll see each other in person someday

Yes! Get a zoom lens - you'll be so happy you did!

Thanks for reading along Brook, hope to see you on my PTR!
