I didn't know about those Mickey coconut patties. That is my favorite candy, since I will be staying at CB, I will be getting some of those.

I can't believe how fast the time has gone since this whole threa was started. The PTR, then the TR & now a new PTR. Love reading about the adventures of your family. Maybe, if I get my nerve up, I will right a PTR or TR.

I love your Mickey top...I haven't seen it before. Boo TR over; Yay new PTR... I am struggling to write my PTR - it is just sad without pictures. Also, it is hard with the holidays. Hey, there's an idea... you can write about your holidays in this TR. I know DIsney will creep in some how.

I have a site for you to visit for Disney music. I think it is the best!

Good purchases on your last day!! Your T-shirt is so cute!

Your shirt is cute & I just love my Illuminations CD. I had never really listened as I watched Illuminations until my DS Ryan (who is a musician) said to me one time "listen to the music" & I ended up buying the CD. I love it!!

Did I hear a rumor....A PTR???????? What would be even better was if you were going sometime around 5/23-5/29

Doing good, just been insanely busy! My DIS hiatus started because I decided to make a scrapbook for my mom from our trip for Christmas. Then I got the bright idea to do it digitally, I've never done digital scrapbooking so I had to learn how to do it first, then I spent every spare minute I had working on it. It was a lot of effort, but I'm thrilled with the result, and doing it digitally allowed me to make a duplicate one for myself! I'm pretty much ready for Christmas, gifts are all purchased & wrapped, all I have left to do is finish baking all the goodies for Jared's teachers tomorrow so that he can give them to them on his last day of school on Wednesday. How bout you??


I'm sad your report is over (even more sad that I missed most of it ), but excited to hear that you will be starting a PTR soon! It sounds like maybe you are going to be there same time as Wigd, which makes me think it's an end of May trip.....

Oh so sad your trip is over. So many memorable moments for your family! I can totally relate to the drink cup thing. We have had so many of those that never get used. And don't get me started on the souvie tropical drink cups! I'm sure someday I'll throw a HUGE cocktail party and serve the drinks in all my cups!

Looking forward to news of your next TR!

Yes, it does! Luckily, we still had a week of summer vacation left, so we didn't have to jump right back into everything. It was more of an easing into it.

I had a hard time deciding between that shirt and the one with Tinkerbell on it. I decided to go with Mickey since I already had red Mickey head earrings I could wear with it. LOL!

I think our dates are exactly the same (May 27 to June 2), so we need to meet up while we are there!

I love the shirts!

I hate throwing away anything with Disney on it! I even have napkins dating back to the 1980s!

It is always busy on the Atlanta freeways. You can just imagine what a nightmare it was on Wednesday when the highways started icing in the middle of rush hour. I was very glad I wasn't out in it!

Judging by his later actions, I would say he was.

Reading about everyone else's trips does make the time in between trips go by faster. Chelsea and Connor are always good for some stories!

Thanks! I feel like it is already going by too fast. Yesterday we spent the day wrapping presents, and today my mom and I are doing some last minute shopping with lunch.

Yeay! I love finding surprises in the mail! Hopefully, my last package will arrive today as well -- Connor's WDW hoodie that he has been wearing for the last three years is looking beyond ratty -- seriously, he looks like an orphan in it -- so I asked him if he wanted a new one. He said he wanted another WDW one -- I found a cute one online at the Disney Store -- the email says it should arrive today.

We will be there at the end of May -- one week after school lets out.

Yep, that is pretty much what I have resolved we need to do from now on!

And YAY for Charles saying this was the best trip yet!
Hi, Julie! Yes, I was thrilled that Charles enjoyed the trip as much as he did.

This whole year has flown by! You should definitely do a PTR or TR -- they are lots of fun to write!

I am always amazed at how the northern schools go up until just a couple of days before Christmas. I am so used to having a chunk of time beforehand.

Make sure you link your PTR on your old TR, so I can find it! I want to hear all about your cruise plans!

Was it hard to figure out the digital scrapbooking? I want to give that a try since all of our photos are digital these days anyway!

It is an end of May trip -- Wigd and I are already making plans to meet up! Is your cruise the same one Anita is taking?

All I can say is that I totally understand the end of the trip daze, and that is the way it can be after having nonstop fun for five or more days!!! I also love that you got your final shopping in and relaxed a bit before leaving that is the way you have to do it. We were like that this last trip, b/c our AP had expired, and it was great. There are so many things to do just enjoying the resorts! Love the Teeshirts!!!

Can't wait to hear all about your new adventures!!!
