wow, I can't believe there are things I forgot!

I actually already have Purex 3 in 1 sheet packed, I got it a while ago as a sample and figured I'd save it for traveling. We'll do one load at my sister's house before we go to Disney if we need it, then we'll be able to do a load there if needed. And I was planning on ponchos to cover the stroller, but I was thinking that probably wouldn't cover the whole thing, it's a double stroller. A cheap shower curtain is brilliant! Adding it to the list Thanks!

Packing for the Parks

Your list looks good to me!

I'm actually trying to think of what little I can take into the parks with me for my upcoming trip. Since my kids won't be with me, I won't need to carry around stuff for them!

That'd be nice! When I go shopping without the kids I don't even bring a bag! I put my ID and debit card/cash in my pocket, my cell phone in another pocket and my keys hang off of a pocket. Having a huge bag all the time gets old.

I know! I love nice bags I do, but I always think to myself when I see these women/girls/whatever with these huge bags and no kids and no signs that they even have any kids at home- why such the big bag? Don't you know you're going to have to carry that from birth to whenever when you finally have them? I don't go to stores with anything much either- it's like a freedom!

I love your lists, I might have to just compare them to mine to make sure I am not forgeting anything. The only two things I would add to your backpack is a stain pen (I got the tide one. Great for when the kids dribble on their closths and it is hours before you can pretreat). I also bring safty pins with me in case something breaks. Great for when a button breaks on pants, a bra strap snaps, and many other possible mishaps.

Are we long lost sisters? I am exactly the same way. I literelly put my Visa check card, ID, and cash in one pocket, my cell in the other, and attach my keys to my belt loop. I love big purses when I need them for the kids and other things, but love the freedom of going with the bare minimum.

photopass CD


Recently I've been doing a lot of research about the photopass CD. I posted on the family board to see if people thought we'd get our money's worth with 2 toddlers that never look at the camera at the same time. The responses I received convinced me it was definitely worth the $100 pre order. Especially since I learned that you can get a refund if you don't like the pictures! However, DH is NOT convinced and he thinks it's an absurd amount to spend on pictures So... how do I convince him? I've told him that they get candid pics, and it'll be easy to get pictures of our whole family together, and it's refundable if we don't like the pics. We even have a $150 gift card we got for Christmas and I said we could use that and just not buy many souvenirs, but won't go for it I *really* want to do it. I'm worried we'll regret it when there's tons of great pictures, and we don't want to spend $150 for the cd or $15 for each 4x6 we want. We'd only have to get 7 4x6s to get our money out of it, or less if we want any 5x7 or bigger.

UGH! The only thing we ever fight about it money. I'm a spender and he's a saver. I say it's our girls' 1st trip to Disney... spare no expense! And he's of the mindset that we've already spent too much money and we don't need to spend a dime more

So... how do I get him on board?

I am totally with you on this one. You can never have too many pictures.
You will be saving $50 if you buy it up front and can still refuse it if you don't like any of the pics. (which I definitely don't think will be the case) I also like that you can get the whole family in the pics....AND THIS IS THE GIRLS VERY 1st TRIP!!!
What does he say when you tell him that you can use the gift certificate you got for Christmas? The souvenirs will fade and disappear over time but the pictures will last a lifetime.....try that one!
Good luck and keep us posted!!!

He just says "that's too much money for pictures". Even if it's out of the gift card. I'm not dropping it though... I usually get my way with stuff like this I was thinking I'd be cheap at the grocery store over the next month to get a good $50-60 and then maybe he'd be up for it since we have "extra" money?

In other news... I've hit the 50 day mark

Mickey Mail!

Not super exciting Mickey Mail, like luggage tags yet, but when I opened the mailbox and pulled this out-



It's just a couple brochures of things to do and reminds you to make ADRs (a little late now if you want the good places! )



Alexis thought it was the best mail we've ever gotten!


super cute that when the envelope opens all the way it's a the monorail!



Kaitlyn liked it too! She's pointing at Mickey here ("icky ouse"... we're working on the m's )



taking a closer look, and of course had to look up to say "cheese". My daughter's are well trained and say cheese anytime they see a camera... even if it's a video Notice what's on tv in the background?



I was a little disappointed it wasn't more exciting mail, but there were some small maps I might put in my planning journal, and this!



10% off at Ghirardelli's! My plan for our 1st night there is to go to Earl of Sandwich and then Ghirardellis for dessert... DH might at the $9 sundae prices. 90 cents off

working on my planning journal tonight... I'm really ready to have it done!
