Bonafaka Family trip!!

i know your thinking Bonafaka? what a ugly name! well that is a combination of my last name and our friends last name!
My name is Michelle nickname Mo. i live in Chicago hence Chicago Mo. i thought Mo Chicago sounded awful! kinda like Bonafaka!
i took this! woo hoo!
Last year was my family's first real vacation. (ever) I went to Disney in 1978 and really don't remember much.
My DH Tom have been married for 11 years and i have 7 year old triplets DS Zack, DS Matt and DD Meg. three dogs lex Great Dane, Logan a golden retriever, and Piper a Sheltie (i show in obedience). they will be brought up later. My Children are complete Disney freaks. Hidden Mickey's are EVERYWHERE! they never stop talking Disney. So it helps to always want to go back over and over again.

Have been thinking about doing a report for sometime now.. just never got up the nerve. Promise this will be filled with pictures!!! Also HOPE Nicole will chime in here somewhere and help out. LOVE the Dis Boards and pretty much live on them the shear entertainment is worth it along with the plethora amount of information!!
i have no idea in how to write a trip report so i HOPE if anyone is reading this doesn't rip on me too much!
so lets start off..
Last year we decided to go to Disney for my Childrens's 6th birthday and our 10th Anniversary.

now if someone can tell me how to shrink these pictures i think we can get threw this... Our Friends Nicole and Family had gone the week before us in 2010. one night we had gotten together and started talking Disney. Enough drinks and we decided to all go together in 2011 and make it a grand gathering!!
With a lot of deliberation and ensuring Nicole's DH could get off work we finally decided to go November 13-19 2011 i believe we came up with this in February?? lots of time to plan... our last trip was everything you can ever imagine plus some. so going back was a dream come true!!
Who wouldn't want to see this again??

So back to the Dis Boards i go to start the OCD planning!!!
more tomorrow!!!

magical 7th Birthday Party!

Ok we are going to jump to September 2011. i was a maniac with the kids party. I lived on the Dis boards for family nights!! so i took a lot of their ideas to make one HUGE Disney themed party... What was i thinking!!!
you really don't know how much Disney there is! i couldn't pick just one theme i wanted the WHOLE kit and caboodle! I didn't want the kids to see the decoration until that morning so we started decorating at about 9pm and stopped at about 1am? I love my friends who came to help!!!
So here are some pictures...

my dining area. i am putting up the cheshire cat in the window.

GOT to have a castle!!!

we had the Birthday in room celebration last year in the Poly so of course i brought it all home and i got to use it again!!!

chocolate covered peanuts for all the Disney Dogs..

pizza planet can't read it stupid flash
some of the cookies were Adult content... we started to get a bit slappy at 12..
have to have Beauty and the Beast by the wine!!!

this was the COOLEST ever. Rice Krispie treats with Swedish fish!!! LOVE the sushi!!!
so cool...

continuing on...
