Well, I am no photographer by any means, but some of my pictures have certainly been as good as some of the ones in the last two Disney calendars we got. If we make our own, we can make it si much more personal, too.

You are right. I didn't even think about it this morning. Two weeks from tomorrow will be our last day, so I have to start counting days now.

Yeah, be sure and let us know. I'm not good about seeing reports in signatures. We've all been there in the craziness of those few days before a trip, so we understand about the time crunch.

I made an awesome calendar on snapfish and it was free (you pay shipping) It's even a Disney calendar. You just insert your own images. It looks like the offer is still open. I made mine back in Dec. I think. It turned out great!

I saw that offer at one time, but I don't use snapfish, so I just passed on it. I will look at it again, though.

That's what this one was called, too.

The weather has improved a bit here, but nothing like what I think it will be in Florida.

I have some exciting news about our trip. I have invited my sisters kids numerous time and their Father ( who is a bit of a jerk**) will never let them go. He always has some excuse why they can't go even though I have offered to pay for their total trip. My neice and nephew always ask if I will take them but I always have to tell them,"Maybe next time" because I don't want to tell them that their Father is a jerk and won't let them go. Anyways, I texted my sister this morning and asked if they could come with us in June. Her husband texted back YES! I am so excited! They are 8 and 10 and have never been before. I am going to surprise them this weekend. I just have to figure out how.

**I know I shouldn't talk about people, especially when they aren't around to defend themselves. However, he has displayed jerky behavior for the 24 years that he has been with my sister.
That is very exciting. I know they will love it, and I bet it will be a most wonderful memory to talk about as they grow up. You'll have to tell us about how you reveal it.

We would have been there during our regular spring break, but flights were so expensive. We back it up a little and saved a bundle!

We enjoyed our stay there. We had an awesome room location. The boats to DTD are nice. It's such a quaint, peaceful resort. One of our cousins is staying there as of today. They were going to MK tonight. It makes me happy to picture them down there having so much fun.

You should definitely look at the Snapfish deal for the calendar. The girls and I made one starting with February so we could get our twelve months worth. It is really nice quality, especially considering we only paid shipping. The best part is that it would include your own special photos!

Hi all,

I am back again, after another long break without internet access. I can get onto the DIS at work (I am here now!) but have been super busy and had no time to relax on here! We have 3G internet at home - not "proper" internet - but its working ok for now.

All caught up - sad to be coming to the end of your trip though!!! But excited as always that another one is right around the corner!

I know I don't post too much but please can I ask for prayers? A girl I knew at college lost her little girl last night. She was only around 1yr (younger than my Toby I know). They don't know why. But they need some strength to get through this and who better to ask than you guys

I will be giving my boy an extra big squeeze tonight

Love to all xxxxxxxxxxx

We will check into that. Jill is able to be at her work computer more than I am, I think, so I'll see if she has time to read about it more thoroughly this week. If she doesn't have time this week, I'll be able to look into a little more this weekend. I would love to have a calendar that combined my family and Disney World!

Yes, this one is winding down, but we take off again next week, so there will be many more Disney World pictures to keep you close to the magic coming up soon. Since there is still plenty of room. Jill will be posting FB pctures along the way, too.

I am so sorry for your friend. It is hard to even imagine the grief they must be feeling right now. I know that God is in control of everything, but that doesn't mean I always understand the heartaches that come to us in the midst of His plan. I will pray for this family, and I hope they will find some comfort in those who love them and surround them at this time.

From the last morning at Saratoga Springs.





The hallway to the right leads to where the last pictures were taken.















Jill and Brooklynn showed up, and we went to get some breakfast. Jill said her omelet was good. I think the rest of us had Mickey waffles.





The girls enjoyed doing some art work.





Another gift shop picture.
If we ever make our own Tiny Town, like at the Discovery Center, wouldn't this be so cute in kitchen area?!?!?



A friendly CM turned Brooklynn into a princess.



The CM's at Saratoga Springs were very nice. I was looking in the gift shop for a small Mickey blanket to replace the one Bella had dropped at Epcot. (I forgot to tell that story in the report, but those who followed along on FB probably remember.) They helped me look, and said that if they had one, they would just give it to us! Luckily, after contacting Lost & Found, Bella's Mickey blanket was sent to her at home.

DisneyJoo2008 I will say a prayer for your friends.

I would LOVE to have a kitchen done up Mickey style!

I'm glad Bella got her blanket back! She must have been so happy to see it!

I did the same thing using pictures from our November trip. It turned out really nice! I think shipping was $6 and some change.

I will let you know if I can make it to the MK. I have yours and Jill's phone numbers stored in my phone. I will try to make it over there so that I can meet everyone.

I love the picture of pantless Bella. When my son was just over a year, he was seen all around WDW without pants.

Saratoga Springs looks so nice! I love all the pictures of the Disney horses! So cute! I looked into it when my mum and I went last April but she wanted CBR instead. I bet Bella loved her new blankie! I need to get more of the Disney kitchen items on my next trip....maybe it will inspire me to cook more - and better! I have a couple of the blue and white collection items but I don't really use them...but I wanted that spoon rest! I should have bought the tea pot!

your friends' family will be in my thoughts and prayers DisneyJoo2008. How awful....I can't imagine what they must be going through.

Prayers going out to your friend. I hope the family can find peace.



Memom, wonderful pictures of SSR. Looks so quiet over there. Little pantsless Bella at the fancy resort. I wouldn't have even noticed!

Luckily Jill had a reserve Mickey at home, which is good, because Bella is very attached. Since WDW found the lost one, she still has two. When you can't find one, there's a back-up until it's found.

I didn't pay attention either. Maybe she spilled something on her pants? As usual, I can't remember.

Don't change any plans, but if it works, it'll be fun. Disney time is valuable, and it's for your family and your group. That's why we are only planning the two meets. If you don't have a long trip, you could spend a lot of your time trying to arrange meetings.

The Disney horse pictures are cute, aren't they?

I use my blue and white mixing bowl that Jill got me all the time. Every time I use it, I love it even more.

At this point, Bella is small enough and cute enough to get away with it.
