So excited that we are finally under the 3 month mark! School starts next Monday on August 23rd and hoping that time just flies once we get busy with school, homework, ect.

Hope everyone is doing well!

For some reason I thought I was subbed to your thread...

Subbing now!

How awesome that Hayley was chose to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game! Did she get to keep the ball or get it signed?


Congrats on the Big Give!!!!!

Thank you for subbing! Hayley did get to keep the ball and got it signed by the team mascot. She was thrilled!

We are VERY excited about the Big Give and feel very blessed to be part of it!

We got our first Big Give Package today!! WOO HOO!!!

So a little boy rang the doorbell selling boy scout popcorn and what did we find when we opened the door? OUR FIRST BIG GIVE PACKAGE!!! The mail mail had put it between the storm door and the front door!

It is from Melissa B. THANK YOU SO MUCH MELISSA!!!!!!





Very excited and wanting to open it now! But I had to take the picture!



What's inside?



A perfect bag just for "Princess Hayley" Complete with Cinderella's Carriage!!! WOW, can you tell she loved it?





She wanted to sleep with her new bag, but I convinced her that she needed to keep it nice for the trip! It will be a great carryon bag for her to carry herself on the plane!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH MELISSA!!! IT REALLY MADE OUR DAY TO GET OUR FIRST BIG GIVE PACKAGE!!!

I think your itinerary looks great!

One thing to think of is on Monday your 'Ohana meal is going to take till about 7. You might want to get there a bit early to check in (20 minutes early) if you want to make it back to MK to see SpectroMagic or Electrical Parade (or whatever it is called now ). Keep in mind that Main St. will be jammed and it might be a pain to push through all those people to get towards the castle. If you do go back, walk through the Emporium on the left hand side. It might be faster. Plus you need to watch Wishes from the Hub if you want to see Tinker Bell fly!

Anyways, if dinner takes long and you don't think you are going to make it, you can watch Wishes from the beach at the Poly and see everything. The music from Wishes is piped in to the beach.

I love the bag Hayley received!!!!!! AWESOME!!!!
