Have'nt been on in a while so I'm catching up a bit. Your itenerary looks great. We have some similar restaurants: Cape May Cafe, Boma, 50's PTC, and Le Cellier. I wanted to try Chefs De France but was outvoted. The only one of those I have ever tried was Cape May and I loved it. Excited about trying the others.

I love the pics of your bags, as well as the bags for your girls. I am thinking about setting up something for my boys, little gifts for when we get there maybe with a fanny bag or something for them to carry.When I went on the Disney Store website to check out the cooler bag Annmarieda posted I found a customizable messenger bag on sale and ordered it. Just came in the other day and I love it. So now, thankfully, that is one less thing I have to worry about.

Your PTR is great so far, can't wait to read more.

Don't apologize!! I honestly think it's a bit silly for someone to feel the need to call you out on it, but that's another story!
I just read the whole PTR and just wanted to advise you-- I know you said you were looking forward to going to Ariel's Grotto, but it's actually closed already due to the Fantasyland expansion . Just wanted to let you know so your girls weren't disappointed!
We'll be there at the same time-- maybe we'll bump into each other!

Just a quick note to you all. I apologize for not being around the past couple of days. My job is truly exhausting and annoying me. They keep splitting up my days off so instead of spending my time off relaxing and DISing, I spend it crashing instead. Soon things will be back to normal and hopefully they stay that way. I am off tonight so I will be around and able to catch up on TRs, PTRs and post a new update. I promise I will reply to all of you tonight, too. Thank you so much for following along.

A side note, we are going to see Toy Story 3 this afternoon and then when we get back we are going to finally create our countdown board or links, not sure which we will do yet. I plan on letting the girls decide. We are also going to have our first mini WDW countdown celebration tonight. So I should have a few pics to share with you as well.

My new update will include our Day 4 Plans and a possible trip Mascot. I look forward to sharing with all of you. Have a great day, everyone!

What did you think of Toy Story 3? It was maybe my favorite of the 3. It made me tear up....

I understand work making you exhausted. I normally don't work full time. When I wanted to pick up a few extra hours in order to pay for the trip, I never anticipated as many as they gave me. I am so tapped...

Can't wait to hear how you liked Toy Story 3. I'm hoping to get out and take my boys either this week or next. They are very excited to see it.

Hope you get some rest after those crazy hours!

We just got back from seeing Toy Story 3 and we loved it. We did get a bit teary eyed as expected but it was a good story with a good ending. We are very pleased. I don't want to say anymore so I don't spoil it for anyone else. We should be working on our WDW Countdown Project this evening. So I should be posting some pics later on. As well as our Day 4 Plans which include our first day at Epcot (my favorite park)!

Countdown Calendar Update

As I told you, last night we created our Countdown Calendar. I wanted to create it at 100 days. However, with AJ's unsure future regarding her schoolwork, we decided it would be better to wait. That way she could focus on getting her work done and we could celebrate better once we knew that everything was good. So now that it is, we decided to start our Countdown Celebration at 54 days to go (Now 53). So as you know, yesterday we went to see Toy Story 3 which we loved . After the movie, we created our Countdown Calendar. And here's what we came up with. I warn you, it is not a very neat calendar but it was made with heart by me and my girls :







We tried to make Mickey heads as our pull offs but we weren't having much success with that so I cut out squares and the girls drew Mickey heads on them. Haylee got the odd numbers and AJ got the evens. To make things fair, the girls get to pull off their own squares instead of fighting over who gets a turn. Also, you can't see it yet but under various days, there are random character stickers just to make the countdown a little more fun.

In just a little bit, I have to take Haylee to her first day of Middle School band camp . After I get back, I will post our Day 4 Plans along with some pics of some stuff I got for the kids train bags and a possible trip Mascot.

Thanks for reading along.

Did you try Cape May for dinner or breakfast? I have heard a lot of people going there for breakfast but not so much for dinner. It was a must for us because of the crab legs.

I just kind of did the gift idea based on some PTRs I've seen on the DIS. It seemed to excite the kids more for the trip and keep them occupied on the way. And keeping the girls occupied was a really big thing for me because our 13 hour train ride and the 6 hour layover in Raleigh. Plus, I was able to find inexpensive things to fill it with. I was truly amazed at how many inexpensive Disney things I could find and non-Disney ones, too.

I got the email a few hours after the payment and showed the girls the $0 balance due and they squealed happily. I am so relieved to be done. Now I can focus on planning and the most exciting part, packing!

I understand work making you exhausted. I normally don't work full time. When I wanted to pick up a few extra hours in order to pay for the trip, I never anticipated as many as they gave me. I am so tapped...
I was balling at the end and Haylee said "Mom, are you ok?" Alleyah said "She's fine. It's just a really sweet ending". Haylee probably would have been crying, too, but she was super exhausted and in one of her grumpy pre-teen moods. She's always been the type that if she gets too tired, she gets very very grumpy. That's another reason why I booked as many days for the trip as I did. That way she doesn't get run ragged. Alleyah on the other hand can sleep very little and still be rested.

As for work, I have been working a job I'm not that crazy about because of some personal stuff that had happened (not the stuff with my mom). And it's a job where I have had to take several steps back professionally to do so that at least I would be employed. Therefore, it exhausts and frustrates me often. However, I can say I am physically in the best condition I have been in quite a while. It's been such a success in that area that I plan on sharing that as a personal update soon.
