That's too bad about your parents, but at this stage, it's more important that everyone's OK than exactly what happens with their vacation. Time off for taking care of the house has to be a priority over time off for Disney. You are right though that they may find they really need the vacation by then. I hope things work out OK.

I'm heading over to your TR now!

I'm sorry your parents had to go through all that! It's a shame they won't be able to come with you but at least they're safe.

I hope that they can get everything taken care of in a timely manner and get back to a normal life as they know it. It will be a shame if they can't join you, but I'm sure there will be opportunities in the future.
Yes, that is the ultimate blessing, that everyone is safe & unharmed. Stuff can be replaced, but people can't be!

If it ends up that my dad can't get off work, they will absolutely be invited along for the trip next year. I know it was something they have both been looking forward to since we came home from our vacation last year. They will definitely need the Disney break by then!

I hope things work out too. The big cleanup is starting today, so hopefully with lots of help they can make a big dent in the work. When the possibility occurred to me of them not being able to come, I even told Dustin, this is so not what we should be thinking about right now. But after storms like this, that's what we all tend to do, I think. Because now it's just one more thing this storm messed up. I was actually surprised my mom brought it up so soon. I really didn't want her worrying about the vacation with all of the other stress she has going on!

Hopping over from your DLR TR and joining in!

So sorry to hear about your parents situation - they have my thoughts and prayers. Hope they can get back to normalcy soon. We lived in Houston for a couple of years and experienced Rita in 2005 and Ike in 2008. Damage to our home was minimal fortunately, but have had friends who had their homes flooded and witnessed how a weather event can flip your life upside down overnight. Glad to hear that they (and their pets) were able to get to safety at their friends house.

Just spent the morning catching up on most of your TR. Sounds like such a fun trip planned so far!

Welcome!

Hurricanes have been simply awful from Katrina on forward. Used to be just a bad storm and a few days off of school. And it just goes to show that it doesn't need to be a Cat 3 or higher to do some real damage. Isaac was only a 1 then downgraded to a TS and it did the most damage to my parents home! I'm just thankful they were able to make it out safely.

I can't believe the trip is next month!

Welcome Home!

I am so very sorry to hear about your parent's house. That must be devastating. I really hope the recovery efforts go well and they are able to put their life back together quickly. I am also so sorry this is effecting your October plans. I really hope there is a way they can still go with you. Please keep us posted.

As I mentioned earlier in another post, Hurricane/TS Isaac kicked my parents' butts. They live in a small city outside of New Orleans that in the 27 years I have been alive has NEVER flooded this bad, but this time it did and they got over a foot of water in their house. Even for Katrina, the water only came into the front foyer area which was not hard to replace. The damage done from this storm is far far worse. They sought shelter at a friend's house a street over who was higher than them and didn't get water in her house. To do that, they walked through the water with their animals (4 dogs and a cat) on a raft to the friend's house, then walked back to get their stuff, then walked back to her house for good. The water was waist to chest deep in the worst spots. It's awful for me imagining what they went through and there is nothing I can do to help them because there is still no way for me to get to them! Luckily since they were home when it happened they were able to save many valuables and irreplaceable things.

What does that have to do with Disney planning? Well, they more than likely will not be joining us for the trip. Were it from a cost standpoint, it would be no issue. DH and I had already started discussing how we would be able to pay for their tickets and/or food to allow them to come, because I think they will need the break by then. But when I talked to my mom, she is more concerned about my dad not being able to get the time off from work since he will be needing to take care of things around the house in the coming weeks and will be missing work. Hopefully the time off thing will work itself out, and if cost is an issue, DH and I can definitely help out because I know they were so looking forward to this. If not, I guess we will just have to plan on them joining us for 2013 instead.

It also means we need to find other accommodations for Saturday night when we fly in. Originally, my parents were booking a room off property with some credit card points and we were going to stay there and move to Bonnet Creek Sunday morning as planned originally. They did put out an AP room discount but being Saturday night, the price is still pretty high. The cheapest I found was $124 for one of the All Stars...not exactly the $80-100 range I was hoping for! Not sure what we are going to do instead, but we at least have a little while to figure something out.

I know it probably seems silly to worry about such a thing with all they have going on, but DH and I made sure not to mention it first although we did think of it. My mom actually sent me a text about it last night. I think she just wants to look forward to a little normal in her life right now, and this was something they had really been excited about. But right now, they need to focus on getting the house back together, and we are doing what we can to help. My MIL, as much as she drives me crazy, would give you the shirt off her back, and she has offered up her camper for my parents to have on their property to live in until the house is livable again. DH is going Sunday to help them get everything set up with the camper and cleaning out the house.

So please continue to send them your thoughts & prayers at this really difficult time. It is so much appreciated.

Still working on getting the pictures in order, edited, and uploaded so I can start my DL TR, and I'll try to get the next day's plans up as soon as possible!

Edited to add:

I went ahead and started our Disneyland Anniversary TR this afternoon!

so sorry to hear they had so much damage and that it looks like they won't be on your WDW trip with you but Disney will always be there I pray it doesn't take too much time/effort/money to fix and replace what they've lost. I'm going to try and catch up on your other DLR TR today if work allows me to and then I'll head over to the new one.

I'm so sorry to hear of the storm damage to your parents home! I'm happy that they and their pets made it out Ok, and I hope that the clean-up goes quickly. Its tough that they might have to miss the trip, and I know that you guys were really looking forward to having them along. Hopefully you'll be able to plan a re-do trip sometime soon!

Headed over to your TR!

I'm so sorry to hear about your parents home. I'm glad that they were able to make it out okay and to be able to save their keepsakes and cherished items. I hope they will be able to join you on your trip. If not just try your best to lift their spirits and look forward to your 2013 trip.

I hope your DL trip was a blast, I'm sure it was. I am going to go over and subscribe to it now

Thanks so much. I think my mom is moving forward with the idea of them coming with us in 2013 because they still have SO much to do on the house. So while I'm disappointed just since we have been planning this trip for so long, I know they need to get their lives in order before they can even think about vacation!

You're absolutely right, and that's what I already told my mom yesterday. Disney will always be there, and we will always be going!

Haha Just call this my "Year of a Million Disney Trips"

Thanks so much! They are working on the house all day every day, so hopefully they will get it back in order soon. My mom is now starting to think about what things she wants to change since the house is getting a major renovation now, especially the kitchen!

Well, we already know we are going in 2013 so they are pretty much planning that to be our "re-do" trip! At least we already had that trip in mind because my mom is really disappointed to not be able to come this year. At least it gives her something to look forward to though!

Thanks so much. Now that the initial shock has worn off, I think they are realizing how much they do still have and how much could have been lost if they weren't there to start picking things up and getting things off the ground.

Look forward to seeing you on the DL thread.

Halloween!

Until having a baby, especially one with an October birthday, I have NEVER been so excited about Halloween as I have been this year and last! Our Halloween decorations for the house were all hand-me-downs from my mom, but I have been looking to add to our collection so we can celebrate the month of October for both Halloween and DS's birthday.

While DH and I were in Disneyland, we started shopping their Halloween merchandise and found a lot of stuff we wanted. But with us each only having a carry-on suitcase and a backpack, we didn't have a lot of room to bring things home. So we took pictures of the stuff we liked and checked online to see what they had at the Disney Store that we could have shipped home. I did end up buying one thing while there, a shirt.


Once we got home, we purchased a couple of the other things we had seen. Two of them came in already, the third was a last minute thing we decided to add onto another order we were making already.








The one on the way

The only drawback to it almost being October is it's going to be an EXPENSIVE month! Disney trip, birthday party (which I have dove into planning for, and I'm having so much fun!), plus a costume, which are not cheap unfortunately although I did manage to find a couple of acceptable ones at a decent price.

The hardest part of buying him a costume this year is that the choices for toddlers are so limited! Tons to choose from when he was an infant. If you don't remember, here's a picture of him as a lion last year.


The ones for "toddlers" I'm finding are mostly 3T or 4T which will absolutely swallow him, and the infant/toddler ones almost all have attached foot covers which will not be good for him this year as I expect he will do a lot more walking this year than he did last year.

These are the two I have come up with so far that both DH and I could agree on. What do y'all think?


Super Grover 2.0


Pirate

Next year, at least, he will be old enough to look through a catalog of Halloween costumes and pick one himself! He is really into trains and Thomas the Tank Engine right now, but those costumes are absolutely awful, so no for that unfortunately.

Just a quick note on my parents, they are making great progress on their house! Last week, I went on Tuesday to help my mom finish packing stuff up while my dad and sister were ripping out sheet rock. A friend from high school sent me a text that morning asking if my sister might like a job (she works for Vitamin Water sampling at events), then asked if my parents could use any Powerade or Vitamin Water while they were working. I was surprised at the offer because she and I have not talked in a long time, but sure enough, she showed up in her huge Vitamin Water van and gave my parents Powerade and Vitamin Water by the case and bags of ice, plus she stayed awhile to hand it out to other people in the neighborhood and even people just driving down the street. She said her work has them on disaster detail just handing drinks out to people who need. It was such a wonderful thing for her to do! We were still working that day with no power just a generator so that we had lights and fans, but they finally got their power back Wednesday which made the work much more comfortable to do!

Anyway, DH spent the whole weekend there and they finished tearing out the rest of the sheet rock and all of the floors, kitchen cabinets, and sink cabinets. They are putting up the new sheet rock themselves but they have a friend who will do the mud and spray the popcorn stuff on it, and will be putting in their new floors for them. My mom is finally looking positively at things instead of breaking down and having anxiety attacks like she was early last week. I think now that she is seeing things happen, she is finally seeing a speck of that light at the end of the tunnel! Thanks everyone for your thoughts!

Up next, posting the next day's plans!

Day 6 Plans

Thursday October 25th

Another rope drop morning for us, this time at...



Depending on what we were able to accomplish on our AK afternoon will kind of direct what we will be doing this morning. Possibly we can grab some FPs for Everest and probably do the Safari, then spend the morning exploring the animal trails and maybe going to Rafiki's Planet Watch, something I have STILL never done.





And since we missed it last time, hopefully we can catch one of the first couple of showings of our favorite WDW stage show, Festival of the Lion King! I think DS would have enjoyed it last time, but it just didn't fit into our AK day. Now I definitely think he will love the acrobatics and songs.



Sometime in the early afternoon, we will head back to Bonnet Creek for a nap and maybe a swim. In the evening we will be revisiting Epcot to spend some more time walking the World Showcase and riding the boat rides. Hopefully we are not on a boat full of crying babies on the Gran Fiesta Tour again!



Maybe we will try out one of the Agent P missions too since DS is a bit of an Agent P freak, although I don't know if he will be interested in the mission as much as DH and I will.

Depending on how the evening goes and how tired we are, I'd really love to walk over for some sundaes at Beaches and Cream that night.



Possibly we can cap off the night with IllumiNations that will depend entirely on DS's mood. IllumiNations is one I can take or leave on a Disney trip, so if we miss it this time, no big deal.

And that will be the end of Day 6...almost to the end of the trip already!

Is that the No Way Jose sundae? We're going to go there for lunch on one of our Epcot days. Kris specifically requested it. I took him there for ice cream during our 2010 trip.

I vote Super Grover! Too cute. Plus everybody dresses up as pirates. He can stand out this way.

Your spider Mickey shirt is cute too! Is yours shiny? Mine is.

I'm glad your parents are doing better!
