I've never heard of Disney pictureka before, but that is something my kids would love. Also, never heard of Apples to Apples, let alone a Disney version. My kids just LOVE games, and Disney ones even more so!
Isn't it sad how fast our kids grow up!!? Apples to Apples is a ton of fun! We have the regular version, but I think Disney will be much better since DD isn't reading yet.

Chef Mickeys (but I prefer Breakfast, which we are trying in Sept)
1900 Park Fare -Never been
Fantasmic Dining Pkg at Mama Melrose's- I have this booked also, we saw fantasmic in '08 and DH loved it but I hate the idea of waiting with a toddler!
Akershus- haven't been(we are skipping this trip because I think DD is too young to appreciate the princesses)
Via Napoli - I would like to try some day!
The Crystal Palace Had a GREAT BKFST there on our Honeymoon (doing this in Sept too)
Ohana- Haven't been for breakfast

Pecos Bills- We plan to try this too (tried it in 07 but we don't remember it)

Epcot- we have only done Electric umbrella and Sunshine Seasons (wasn't thrilled with either)

Hollywood Studios-
Pizza Planet- We Love PP, DH and I actually like WDW pizza many don't and I like that PP has cookies for dessert rather then the chocolate cake, much easier to save for later! and getting the pizza with a salad is a better deal!

Animal Kingdom-
Flame Tree Barbeque- We prefer Pizzafari but only because I'm addicted to the breadsticks!
Thanks for all of the input!! I too love the pizza at Disney! In fact I don't think I have ever had anything at Disney that I didn't like

My DS was 18 months old when we took him to WDW the first time. He kept grabbing my face with his hands and turning my head so that we were eye to eye. Then he would say "thank you mommy soooooo much for bringing me here!" It's probably my most favorite memory of him when he was a baby. He doesn't remember it, but I sure do and I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Mickey Tie Dye Shirts

Well, I just started on my first "trial" run of the Mickey Tie Dye shirts. I only made one, and I'm waiting for the dye to set. Not sure how long I'll be able to wait before peeking.

Lesson Learned: When it says to wear rubber gloves....do!! I 'll have some nice dyed black fingers for a while

2 more things I've learned from tie dying.....

#1 Do not use the RIT dye from Wal-Mart. It just doesn't get very bright.
#2 I am not a patient person....lol.....it was absolutely killing me to wait for the dye to set. I kept peeking and ultimately screwed up the shirt. (That's why I did a trial run)

So I'm going to head to Hobby Lobby on Monday and try to find a fabric dye. I'm doing black and orange for MNSSHP and would prefer the colors to stay black and orange (not purple and yellow like mine turned out after washing...)

I am however, very happy with how clear my Mickey Head is. It was what I was most nervous about and it looks so defined! Now to just figure out the dye problem...

I think I would cry if my DD told me that! In a good way of course!

Packages in the mail!

I got my Disney Apples to Apples and my Baby Jogger Double City Mini stroller in this week and I couldn't be happier!

Disney Apples to Apples: We played this tonight and it was so much fun for all of us! Kevin, Isaac, Ava and myself played while Violet had fun taking all of the extra cards and seeing how big of a mess she could make It is really a great game for us! Even Ava can play (because there are pictures on the cards) and she understood the object of the game. My favorite part of the game is that the cards even have attractions on them from WDW. So far I have seen It's A Small World, Space Mountain & Haunted Mansion. I really appreciate that it is truly all things Disney.

My NEW STROLLER!: I was so excited when I found out that my stroller was going to arrive two weeks earlier than I thought! The plan today was to go for a walk and see how she handled, but the rain spoiled that plan. So plan #2 was load the kids up in it, and drive it through the house. They had fun riding around in it and I had fun seeing how easily it handled. I am hooked and can't wait for the rain to go away so I can take my kiddos for a walk

Life Update!!

I have a little life update to tell you guys about!! My best friend and I decided at the beginning of this year that we wanted to take the real estate licensure courses. We had class for three hours on Mondays and Wednesdays for 9 weeks. We finished up those classes last week, and headed north for 2 1/2 hours to Indianapolis today to take our State Exam. I am very happy to announce that we both passed and have already found a Broker to work with!! I am very excited to get back into the work force after being home for the last three years. The great thing about selling real estate is that I can do most of the work from my house and will only need to go to the office as needed. I really feel like it will be the best of both worlds for me

So now that I'm finished studying, it's time to get caught up on all of my threads I'm subscribed to that I've been missing out on

Thanks for the review of Apples to Apples. That sounds like something we'd enjoy playing.

Your trip sounds great! You guys are gonna have the best time ever. Believe it or not last year when we went to Disney World (our first time) was my first time flying, too. I was 41. You will do fine. I told my son and my husband the fact that I didn't run up and down the aisles screaming was a really good sign. LOL

That's too funny I think my kids are looking forward to the plane as much as they are Disney
