That's the hardest thing to plan for, isn't it? I just know once E sees the ice cream, TRAIN (and model train inside), and the carousel, it's gonna be all over!

I've gone from- "Plans? We don't need no stinking plans!" to "OMGoodness! I need to plan park times, character meets, meals, etc" & now back to my original thought b/c, with an almost 4 year old, plans just don't mean much as long as there's a place to play, clean underwear and a change of clothes! Am I right? Notice I didn't really include food in there- if he's playing, he couldn't care less! Add in some character visits at GKTW and he's going to be all, "Disney World? THIS isn't Disney World??"

If any of y'all were going to 1/2 day something with the Animal Kingdom, what would your afternoon half consist of? Going by the crowd calculator, it looks like the days the AK is least crowded are the same as Hollywood Studios (but we thought we might need a whole day there??). Grrr..can Universal/I.O.A be seen in a 1/2 day? Sorry- I need to go ask this on my own PTR, don't I? (Thanks for unintentionally letting me horn in on your thread again )

My baby boy graduated Preschool last night! He got the "Best Athlete" award! He said he wants to be a musketeer when he grows up, but his teachers think he will be a basketball player. Here are some pics from graduation and kindergarten registration.

Chase and Alyssa received Mickey Mail from some wonderful ladies this week. After a trip to the ER on the morning of July 4th, Alyssa was very excited to open her package. We thought she had broken her wrist so she had to get xrays. That was very painful for her, but we think the xray tech popped her elbow or wrist back into place during the xrays. Afterwards she was totally fine and using her arm again (no broken bones on xray), so she was diagnosed with Nursemaid's Elbow.

All better now!


Our 1st package is from Alicia




Very cool hairbows!


Spiderman hairbow to match the dress I made her!


Thank you Alicia! We love the hairbows!

I'm not much of a seamstress, but I can cut up a tshirt and sew it back together. hahaha I do love the recycled tshirt dresses. They are very cute with the open back!

We took a family vacation in June to Savannah, GA and stayed a few minutes away at Tybee Island. The weather was perfect!



We ate at Uncle Bubba's Restaurant (Paula Deen's Brother)


My husband's parents (aka Granna and Poppa D)


We took a trolley ride around Savannah!


Chase and my niece Jaycie






Worn out!


Alyssa loved the jetski!

Fellow DIS stalker here, great to see another North Carolinian come out of the woodwork!

Congratulations on being middle school sweethearts, that is adorable! Your two kids are also adorable, and little Alyssa sounds like a real trooper! Sounds like she had to go through a lot, hopefully you're coming out on the other end! Love the big bows, very Southern I wouldn't feel guilty about getting a wish trip, it sounds to me like she's been through a lot. I used to volunteer at Duke Children's, and if it were up to me, every child would get a wish, because any child who has to stay in the hospital deserves it!

I'm gonna settle in to read the pre-trip report, but I will keep your family in my prayers!

Thank you! I know what you mean. So many children have suffered through so much, and I wish they could all have a wish trip! We have been very blessed!
