I'd love to follow your trip on facebook. I"ll pm you.

Did you remember to put your mail on hold? We had to do that this time since FIL is coming with us (he normally collects it for us)

Maybe we'll see you at DHS. We're planning on going June 4th. As it turns out we'll be most likely eating CS at Pizza Planet also. We have an ADR for Sci Fi but they changed the time of the parade so it now conflicts.

I love that idea! I am going to have to do that for us as well!

It worked out really well I think. The places that aren't a preset price I didn't seal the envelope, just in case the service is terrible or we end up not getting dessert or something I can change the amount in it easily, but it's nice knowing that all the money is set aside and ready to go!

I see you did the same thing I did when you got home from church, hop on the Dis. LOL

Are you planning on seeing Rapunzel at all? I think we might try to do that.

We might try to see Rapunzel, but we'll see how the girls react to the characters first. We have lots of character meals scheduled so we don't have to wait in line to get pictures taken with characters. Alexis does love "Tangled" though, so we might have to try that for the 2nd MK day. I just don't know if it's worth waiting in line... I've heard horror stories about the line!

I think that I might just borrow this idea from you

Glad we found each other on FB. Cannot wait to see everyone's LIVE updates.

I cannot wait to start the vacay!!!! Whooohooo!

How is the packing going? I, hopefully, will get everything done before Friday, so we can leave by 3am on Saturday, the 28th.

we're so close! packing is about the same as it was a couple days ago... 75%. I did get DH to pack his stuff (which I wasn't counting in my packing percentage since he was responsible for all his stuff), so that's good! Every time I open the girls' suitcases I rearrange everything and make sure all the outfits are organized right so they're wearing the right outfit on the right day. An hour later it's all packed again Yesterday I spent a lot of time trying to clean and working on my to do list.... the one I put on here doesn't include any of the cleaning I need to do Since we're having a pet sitter come stay at our house I need to get everything clean. I always like to come home after vacation to a clean house, but with someone coming to stay I *really* want it to be really clean before we leave.

8 more days! only 4 until we leave!!!

DH took Wednesday and Thursday off, so he's only got 2 days of work left. No idea why he took both days off, but it'll be nice to have him around while I'm trying to finish getting everything ready, packed and cleaned.

We've got a lot going on this week, so we should stay pretty busy. Hoping I'll be able to get everything done without stressing too much!

I'm taking Alexis to the doctor today. 2 weeks ago Kaitlyn had thrush (I didn't even think toddlers could get it! ) and now it looks like Alexis is getting it. She's had a bad diaper rash (I've been putting potty training off till after disney ), which I figured out was thrush/yeast related, and a couple days ago I noticed white spots in her mouth. I called Friday and they gave me some over the counter remedies to try and they seem to be working, but I don't want to take any chances when we leave for vacation in 4 days!

Tomorrow I'm planning on staying home all day and cleaning!

Wednesday we've got a playdate in the morning, so hopefully all the cleaning I do tomorrow will stay clean and then Thursday night I'm taking Alexis to see Kung Fu Panda with one of her friends.

Well, we went to the doctor and got 2 prescriptions to use until everything clears up. Of course now that we're back home, Alexis now has a small fever and is acting sick Completely unrelated to the things we got prescriptions for

Hoping it's just a little bug or something, we leave in 4 days!

Slowly but surely working on my to do list. I crossed a few things off my list today

Since we're down to just 4 days till we leave and 1 week from today we'll be in Orlando at my cousin's house, I thought I'd steal an idea from other DISers (Lidian and Corrine ) and start doing a "1 week from today" segment-

1 Week from Today:
We will be in Orlando!
We will have spent the morning hanging out in Downtown Disney and shopping
We will have eaten lunch, probably at Early of Sandwich
We will have gone back for naps, then either back out to DTD or found something else fun to do
We will probably be at my cousin's house visiting with them and letting our kids play
We will be dying of anticipation for what the next day holds!

OOO poor baby! I hope that she feels better! At least you still have a couple of days until you actually get into Disney so hopefully while at family's houses she will get better!

Better that she's sick now, and not during your trip, right? At least that's one way to look at it! Hope she gets better soon.

packing pictures!

I took a couple pictures of my packing process

all the random stuff I've been setting aside... I should've taken a picture when I took it all out to organize it



our backpack for the bag... DH isn't in the military... he borrowed it from someone who was.



the girls' bag for the weekend before, when we're doing family stuff-


the girls' suitcases (they got matching suitcases for christmas this year )


how I organized all the clothes, each day has 2 outfits (some with just 2 shirts, some with 2 whole outfits)
complete with hairbows that match the outfit


and the bags each have the girl's name, day and the park on it


I even set aside their outfits for the drive on Friday... I had extra shirts (even after 2 outfits a day!), so they're going to be themed Friday too
