glad she likes her "ear aid" or "earring aid" as my Ella calls hers
what color did she get?
Ellas are purple and her molds are pink/purple/white

We are trying to figure out car seats too. All 5 kids are still in them and I hate to drag them all along again

Katie has the same purple one but her inside tye die colors are blue purple and white. Pink is her sisters favorite color so she refuses to have anything to do with it.

I made an attempt at the iron transfer t-shirts for our trip omg I am usually very crafty. I make the kids birthday cakes, christmas ornaments, doll clothes but I apparently have no skills for the iron (my mom told me I should learn to use one...eventually steaming things in the bathroom would not work) Needless to say i now have acquired some nice new dust clothes lol.

Does anyone have any can't miss restaurants while we are there?

We will be arriving at GKTW on the Friday before you the 28th of January. As for the size until this year all 3 of my boys were very small - my oldest is now almost 18 BUT at 13 he was barely 53 pounds. He is now about 5'8" and 130 (this is his wish trip we are going on). My twins are still small - Clay the sickest is actually taller and heavier now but alot is due to medication and his g-tube. Cole is still about 70 pounds (Clay is about 90) and they will be 14 soon. So small is not an issue. At Disney she should be able to go on almost all - except maybe a few of the roller coasters.

hugs
Sharon

I lost your thread there for a while!

You should sooo try making the shirts again! It's not that hard, although I have messed up quite a few of my own. My kids will agree with me- as mickey's arm is really not supposed to be smeared across his face.... but it makes an interesting pajama shirt!

Hope all is going well in your planning! Haven't been on the boards too much lately- been busy and crazy!

Your trip is sooooo close! I hope you all have a blast and wish you so much pixie dust you all float away!

THere are only a few days left before we leave. The girls are dizzy with excitement. Hopefully we can get away from the 20 in of snow in the yard and not miss it for the week. All reservations seem to be in place girls do not know about those. All there bags are packed. Mine and hubbies are pretty much done. Letter from doctor for pediasure and duocal picked up yesterday. Wish granter stopped by last week due to all the snow it was hard to coordinate a visit with her granter but Katie loved all the gifts. Her new leg and sneakers are done in time for her trip we just picked it up yesterday we were having a horrible time with her sneaker. The shirts were a no go I tried twice, we will have a great time even with out them. Thank you everyone for your wishes and help. If don't post before we leave i will as soon as return home. My DH now has to go out to shovel the new 10 inches of snow that appeared overnight. my kids will be in school until july at this rate

I hope you have the most magical time on your trip!!! I'm sorry the shirts didn't work out. They are hard to do!

Here's a thought... On the Creative DISigns board, some of the DISigners have made some very cute invitations for many of the character dining ADR's, BBB, etc. I printed those on cardstock for my kiddos before we went, and then would leave them out as a special surprise each morning to let them know what the event of the day was. It added a little more magic to each day, especially if you have things planned that are surprises!

I hope you will come back and post some pictures and tell us how Katie's wish trip was!!
