We will be taking an unplanned trip to Virginia next week as we have delayed the funeral until after Christmas to accomodate travelers (like us).
I'm so sorry Sheree. I hope the girls are okay. Travel safe. You'll be in our prayers.

Soleil - so nice to "see" you. Thank you.

Shawna - new fridge for Christmas? I wouldn't mind one, but wouldn't want to be forced to spend that $$ either!!

Thank you all for your prayers etc. We are doing okay. It's sort of surreal right now as we are just going about our business. I'm sort of spinning - thinking of things that need to get done, lists to make etc. The girls so far are okay. They (lucky them) have never gone to a funeral, just a visitation, which I'm not sure they remember, and never for a family member. So I'm trying to prepare them, but not sure what to say. I'm a bit concerned because I don't know if they will have an open casket or not. That may freak them out, so I want to prepare them for that possibility. We did have to find Sarah some appropriate clothes last night - she has outgrown so many things!!!

Wendy - What a lovely thing to say about your MIL. She sounds like someone who will definitely be missed.

So, we carry on.

Sheree, sorry for your loss as well.

Just wanted to pop on and say, "Happy Chanukah!" to all who celebrate. We light the first candle tonight.

I can't believe he's 6 months old!!! I'm am definately ready to plan his first trip, but Tony (the money man) says we have to wait until we get our tax return and all that. We can always plan though, right?

Sheree & Wendy- So sorry to hear about your mother in law's. You and your families are in my prayers.

When I finally get more than a few minutes to myself, I do plan on catching up on all of the PTR's and TR's I've subscribed to. I miss the DIS so much!!!! Today is Madison's last day of school before Christmas and I'm going in to help with their party (love being a room mom). My older sister is coming over to watch Cole so I can go help. Today is also Tony's last day of work for awhile. He took off tomorrow and the 2 days after Christmas. I love having everyone home!!

Sheree and Wendy - I'm so sorry for you losses.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We didn't do too much as far as gifts go bc we decided that our Disney trip was our gifts to ourselves. Then Christmas Day was my first Packer Game!! Mom, dad, my sister and myself all had a wonderful time. The tickets were actually a gift for my sister from a dear friend of hers. And we didn't freeze too bad!

Have a great day everyone!

Where does time go? I don't think I've been on the boards since the beginning of December. I'm finally caught up, I think.

Sheree & Wendy - So sorry for your losses. What a difficult thing to deal with during the holidays. I'll be sending extra prayers your way.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. DS is off school until the 4th. My good news came before the holiday when we got the approved school calendar for next year. We're moving to a "more balanced" school year and so we will have 2 weeks off in October. We're going to Disney!!! The schedule is actually really good. It shortens the summer break to just 7 weeks and gives us longer breaks more frequently throughout the year. And, did I mention, we're able to go to Disney because of it! I just couldn't bear the thought of going during the hot summer months. Don't know any details yet, but let the planning begin. The only downside is some friends of ours want to go with us. However, they have totally different vacation styles than we do and don't like to go for as long as we do. I told DH that is fine, but I am planning my vacation the way I normally would. If they go, that's great - we can meet up with them for dinner or for some rides, but I am not tayloring my vacation for them.

I love this idea of a school calendar...I really wish my district would consider a more balanced school year...I would love two weeks off in October LOL!! Congrats on the Disney Vacation...you are going to have an awesome time!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday which ever one you celebrate!!! We had a nice day... my husband held up really well.... while he was very sad not having either of his parents here he was able to enjoy it with the kids....

Then he had a surprise birthday party for me on Monday.... yes the day after Christmas I turned 50.... yikes... I don't feel old ...

with all the chaos of the past two weeks I forgot to mail out our box of goodies to the hotel until today... we arrive Tuesday and it will get there Wednesday... not to bad... I did manage to call ahead and request a refurbished room in the alligator section... did online check in as well, and finished our mousekeeping envelopes...

Had to take all of the Christmas decorations down as we will be heading over to Buffalo to plan the service for Tim's mom on Friday... arrive back here Sunday, leave Tuesday and then two days after we return my house is getting new carpet.... what was I thinking....

Have a happy new year snowbirds!!!
