Halloween costumes are ridiculously expensive aren't they? At least in taking them to DL with you, you'll get more than one day's use out of them. I'm kinda sad about Halloween this year, Jared told me that he doesn't want to dress up, he's decided he's too old for it. He just turned 10! I guess having an older brother pushed him to that decision a little earlier than I would have liked.
Awe, that is sad! I'm lucky that my kids are so young and I have many years of Halloween fun ahead of me. It will be my babies first halloween and he'll be the cutest monkey ever! My oldest is going to be a fairy, while her cousins want to be something completely opposite of "cute"! A dead bride and a dead prom queen. They'll all look so great trick-or-treating this year.

Happydog:::: I agree your porch looks really great, and I love your idea on surprising your kids. I saw those cereal packages at Target the other day and was tempted to buy some myself.

So glad the boys enjoyed their Star Wars package!!!

Your front porch looks great! Love all those mums! We are off to the pumpkin patch this afternoon to get our pumpkins.

Love the reveal! Connor was about DS8's age when he started reading the Harry Potter books! He loved all of them! (The third one is my favorite. ) You know...now that he is reading the HP books and about to start watching the movies, you may have to plan on taking him to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The costumes sound adorable! You are right about the prices on them. This year, I asked the kids if they would rather do something Halloween-themed instead of buying costumes that they wear once. They were all for it, but now I have to think of something suitably fun to make up for it. I should have planned a Disney trip. LOL!

Five nights until you leave!!!

Followed you over from MeMom's TR. I have always wanted to go to Disneyland but I do not like to fly. Maybe one day I will get up the courage. Can't wait to see the boys reaction on the big reveal. Very cool idea.

Official freak out time

Uh, yeah... packing? Nope. Finished with the cereal box "surprises" ? Nope. Manicure & Pedicure? Nope. Hmmmmm..... one thousand other random things that have to be done before I leave my house for a week? Nope, nope, and Nope.



Okay, okay, let me try that again.



Seriously. Who am I kidding.

Hmmmm.... I know! I know!

Lets NOT go.










FAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT Chance.

More on the way!!! I may be a nervous twitching over-caffinated and exhausted wreck before I get on that plane Friday, BUT it wouldn't be a DISNEY vacation otherwise, RIGHT????

Lots to share, just have to get my behind in gear!

Oh. One last item. I may not have had time for packing and preparing for the trip, you know those trivial requirements for week-long vacations, BUT I did manage to order a new Vera.

You KNOW I have MY priorities straight.

No worries! You're an old pro at this, you'll be ready and your trip will be fabulous

Yay for a new Vera! Shoes & bags are the most important piece of any trip right?

Have a fab trip. Your reveal plans sound great. You'll be their by now and wondering what the stress was for, all the organising chaos is out of the way and you are on your Halloween vacation having a blast

Look forward to hearing all about it and seeing pics of DL

We made it! We loved it!

Hey guys!!!

Well, we had our whirlwind Disneyland trip and are now relaxing here in San Diego, amid the palm trees and 80+ weather.... so nice. I am going to feel so guilty going back to work next week with a tan!!! Okay, guilty for a minute.

Anyhow, I have my camera cord, and am ready to load some pre-trip pics into photobucket! I will do that tomorrow, and then we are going to La Jolla. Beach time!

Looking forward to catching up (I am making the rounds!) That three hour time zone difference is certainly creating havoc with my system, but I am trying to stick to some regular sleeping patterns.

Disneyland was SO much FUN! I can't wait to share it with you. That part of the trip may have to wait until I get back, but I will at least catch us up for those final few days!!!
