Other than that, can't think of anything new. Oh, wait, Nicki and I have decided not to go shopping to DTD on our MK day. We just figured we aren't going to have enough time with the new Fantasyland stuff being open and we want to go to WL to see the decorations.
I love the posters and the tee's, though I admit I do love' Tim's idea for a poster too.....

Make sure you put lipstick marks all over the poster.
this is just too funny....and he would probably not be thinking of Mickey & Minnie after THAT poster! (and he would not wonder why you are heading to the bedroom!LOL)


Your first two days sound awesome. I just watched Tim's video of the Osborne lights and I can see why this is top on your list. We'll get there eventually.

and what could be better than closing down the park with your BFF/Sister? oh that's right, Kona Cafe first thing the next day!

It's not? What picture do they make fun of now? Some certain someone, who won't be named, drinking beer in the shower?

Maybe the boys will want to do that too.


Somebody needs to sober that guy up.

No kidding!

I almost forgot about that picture. That's not even the one all the dads make fun of anymore.

Ooooh....what picture are you talking about? Please tell!

That one.

Except he already has an AARP card.

That covered all the days that I'll be there, and it looks like we're pretty much going different directions, but we might be able to try an early morning meet on Friday.... I'm sure I'll have mug duty for our room anyway.
I always have mug duty...so maybe we can meet up to fill our mugs and at least say hello. I would really like that.

So great that you are staying at CSR this trip!
MEK, I called Lauri who has worked with Mark for almost 25 years. I told her about the suprise for his 60th and I needed her help. I told her I knew that their trade show ended the last day he'd be there for a week and she said he should have everythng done and, if he didn't, she would personally finish it up for him after he left. She only told the gal in charge of the vacation schedule and their boss and they all know NOT to say a word until he returns to the office after the trip.

The Nicki attack will be awesome.

I'm really looking forward to going "home."

Yes, Rosie, both Mark and Todd will be doing the hats together. In fact, Todd told me since they have to do that with the hats, that Nicki and I had to do it with tiaras. I told him that would not be a problem because we are both princesses.

D, it is getting harder and harder. I so want to show my excitement about the trip and I can't do a darn thing.

I can't wait to see how this all works out and what a fun fabulous time time they have.
It was easy once I knew that Lauri would take care of things for him.

Well...thats how it is in my house Seriously though, I can easily do this for Todd because I write his schedule for him and he would not give a second glance as to why I am giving him so much time off I will not tell you how Kathy did it, I will let her do that

Honey, we all know that you are the boss and what you say goes....well except dining reservations sometimes.

Our plans for Saturday are great! I have to find out what time the PP people are in the lobby of MK, maybe we should not go there first thing in the am, maybe we should take a break after lunch and go visit the resorts around MK...what do you think? I dont think the Gingerbread House is open that early in the am anyways and this way we can make it to MK for RD, which I think is 9am.

Well, we talked about the plans for 30 minutes on the phone today and that's changed, now hasn't it?

I figure we are going to be at MK from 9am to 10pm so a nice break in the day might rejuvenate the boys..not worried about us because we are hyper nuts but the might need a seat and a Pina Colada

A Pina Colada and a beer for sure...we might need one too.

Now the most important thing is what are we doing for lunch?? I might want to try that pork shank think in FLE or maybe CHH or Peco? Or we can all just get whatever we want and just keep on grazing? You know we have to go to Adventureland a few times so the Big Man can get his egg rolls on...we do not want him to through a tantrum fit for a 2 year old

I think we covered that on the phone today too. We'll play it by ear and see how hungry we are. But I did have a thought after we hung up. If we're going to take a break in the afternoon to go to the resorts, maybe we could eat at Roaring Forks for lunch at WL????

So maybe after lunch we take the boat to WL and then hop on a bus to GF? I think they share a bus and the Poly and CR share a bus. What do you think? Maybe go to the Poly for a drink and to chillax at the Tambu Lounge before going back for round 2 at MK? Or Minzer's Lounge in the GF?

See my comment above about Roaring Forks. Oooh...I do like the idea of a drink at the Tambu Lounge. Good thing the kids are old enough to drink.

BOG...totally pumped for this meal! I hear the food is incredible and for all the trouble the two of us went through to get this reservation it better be!
I just read Amy's review of BOG on Facebook and I can't wait to get there.

Plans are really coming together. I really enjoyed seeing everything at Christmas time. Staying at WL was maybe not my favorite resort, but the decorations just can't be beat! Gingerbread house at GF is amazing....and all other decorations are so impressive as well!!!

You are going to have an awesome trip!
Thanks, Ann. I think it's been decided that we will put the poster on the bedroom door and have the door closed...that should prevent him from having a chance to say anything that I have to cover.

I can't wait to see the gingerbread house.

Thanks, Marv. I can't believe how quickly it is coming. With the holiday this weekend, the weekend will go fast and then we have plans next weekend so I'm hoping this doesn't drag. I'm going to burst soon.

So I noticed your rotating ticker this morning and noted the dates on your possible girls trip. Looks like if you pull it off we will be there right around the same time. Do keep me posted because it would be very cool if our trips overlapped. Is this with Mary and the girls?
All the reviews I've read for BOG have been excellent thus far.

You and I have already talked via PM about the June trip, and I really hope we can have a "girls" lunch with you.

The Christmas decorations at WL are really pretty! Hope y'all can make it to see them.
I can't wait to try BOG and now I hear the Beast will be there for pictures. Poor Nicki will have a much bigger task with her dining report this time with six of us eating and reviewing all of our food.

We will definiltely get to WL; even though I don't like the resort itself, I do want to see the decorations.

Thanks, glad you like the shirts. Tim is such a troublemaker.

This hat is so MARK! Can't wait to see the photos!

Mark tried that hat on a couple of years ago and I fell in love with it and so glad I found it.

this is just too funny....and he would probably not be thinking of Mickey & Minnie after THAT poster! (and he would not wonder why you are heading to the bedroom!LOL)

Truthfully, I'm not sure WHAT my husband would be thinking of after THAT poster.

Your first two days sound awesome. I just watched Tim's video of the Osborne lights and I can see why this is top on your list. We'll get there eventually.

Next to surprising Mark and seeing Nicki and Todd, the Osborne lights are my biggest excitement.

and what could be better than closing down the park with your BFF/Sister? oh that's right, Kona Cafe first thing the next day!
I figure the Kona coffee will keep us going the next morning.

I tell them at least once every two or three days they cannot even breathe on their food until you take your pictures.

Who the heck needs lunch if we are going to have a cupcake from all of those places?

You can SKIP most of the first 70 pages or so as that was a PTR to our September trip and December got thrown into the mix.
