Thumbs up

YAY!!!!! I'm so happy you are here and planning and getting ready for the adventure of a lifetime!!!
Yes, I did use all the happy smilies.
Am I the friend you were talking about? I remember talking to you about this place a long time ago. Wow, so much has changed. Our girls are healthy, living a normal life. So many blessings...
I hope you all have a BLAST on your trip and savor every well-deserved moment!

I know the cruise forum has TONS of info!!
I'm going to have to ask MAW for one of their star magnets! The one on the back of my car has taken a beating from the desert heat and sun!

My family preferred Magic Kingdom when we went to Disney world a couple of years back. You will have memories on top of memories!
Thanks! We chose Animal Kingdom one day and Magic Kingdom the other. Super excited!

Hey sweetness! It is actually a local friend who reserved our room under her DVC for us.... but you are always on my mind when I think of the DW portion of our trip! xoxo We are so blessed to be on this side of the journey and able to smile!

Mickey Mail just puked all over my living room and we LOVE it!!!

We got some awesome and thoughtful Big Give Mickey mail tonight, and the kids were shocked to learn about being spoiled by fairy godmothers all over the country! I decided to wait and explain the Big Give to Gabriella until a package arrives and now she keeps reciting "these women are the best women ever!!!!".

Our first package came from mommy2mrb! It was an awesome array of goodies from play doh, beach balls, color boards, sticker, watches and more!!! The kids were in heaven going through all the goodies and most of it is already in action as we speak!

Thank you so much Lisa & Megan!!!

We got a second Mickey Mail package today as well! (I try and make it to the PO Box every other day normally )

This awesome Disney lovin box had color items and other goodies that, my guess, are directly from the park! We even got 4 WDW Mickey balloons we all agreed to save for our big send off party in September!!!!!

The kids also got super cute plush Minnie & Genie dolls (NEVER seen a Genie before but man is he cute!!) and PJ got the CUTEST Buzz Lightyear outfit I am going to attempt to resist putting him in and save it for the trip!!!!!

Thank you Jessica52877 , Lin and Dallas!!!!! The kids are having a blast coloring already and PJ finds it fun to cool me down with a fan. I'm just missing someone feeding me grapes!

This is so funny and cute! I'll have to remember that saying!

The kids expressions are so darn cute! You really caught them in their excitement and they sure were excited! I LOVE to see big smiles!!

The bags, straws, balloons and crayons were from a mickey mom's party that I had leftover! Disney sent them to me, so they are compliments of Disney! I am so glad that they went where someone will enjoy them. I almost donated them a few weeks ago when I was cleaning out.

I hope he loves the Buzz outfit! It seemed to scream his name! And I hope Gabriella wasn't too disappointed in not having an outfit too. Hers will come and it seems the girls always make out more then the boys.

She was completely ok with it! It was kinda nice because he seems to be often forgotten when it comes goodies since she is the "sick kid" and on the forefront of things most of the time.... I wish I could catch his shock when he found out HE was getting goodies too!! He just asked me, again, to wear it! LOL.... I may let him squeeze in one wear before the trip!

You can see the excitement on the kids faces, it's so cute! I love all the goodies and really love that you set up an album for all the BG stuff. Brilliant idea!
