You are quite the tropper heading straight to Disney from camp, bet you were exhausted!

Thanks for the pictures from the ME video, so excited to be able to see that again in just over a month

I like your dates. We hope to see you there, but sadly, the girls won't be with me on this trip.

Our class lists go up on Friday, almost a month before school starts. As a parent, I am glad but I cannot imagine the nightmare it is for the office when parents start calling in complaining.


I like your dates too. I'm sad that I'll miss the girls but excited that I can see you! Plus by splitting up the meets, there is something super special about Disney and Dollywood!

Love Brooklynn's imagination!

I will describe it one hint at a time and watch the wheels turn as they get it. I make some easy, and they get the answer on the first clue, but sometimes I stay kind of vague and make Brooklynn think a little. She likes the challenge!




Love it. I do this with my kids except its with park music. My 13 yr old is getting really good at picking out which background music goes where :0)



**************************

We did not explain the title of the report to you guys.

One day, we were walking back up to the room after an afternoon swim. It was windy, and Brooklynn said, "Mommy, the wind is talking to me."

Jill said, "Really? What is it saying?"

Brooklynn said in a complete matter-of-fact tone, "I don't know. I don't speak wind."

The way she said it struck all of us as quite funny, and we laughed our way back to the room. I love to listen to kids and converse with them. They bring much joy and laughter in the way they put their precious thoughts into words.
Love it. I am getting these conversations with Louie. So sweet!

The 2 girls together are quite a display of cuteness! Any chance Sophie will have dark features? What did Jill look like as a baby?
Jill had dark brown eyes and light brown hair. Brooklynn and Bella inerited blue eyes, so it would be nice if Sophie would have brown eyes. We'll know in a few weeks.

I wish I had it on video. The way she said it was so funny, and she had no intention of being funny.

I would say sorry about the crowd, but we don't want to send anyone home. We'll just have to drag out some extra chairs.

I do that, too. I think what I do sometimes is hit Preview, but then I forget to Submit. Silly me. Other times, I think our posts get lost in cyberspace!

I was totally exhausted! I had slept very little that week, then very little at Jill's house that night. I got a good night's sleep at Pop Century that firat night.

A bit over two months for us. From the first of July to the first of October is any easy enough wait.

I think the Dollywood meet is going to be so much fun! A lot of people are coming that can't get all the way to WDW. We are really excited about the meet!

Our secretary told us today they are going to try to keep us at about 22-23 kids, so we'll keep our fingers crossed.

We love going in October. You will love the way the entrance to Magic Kingdom and Main Street are decorated. And the weather is usually perfect.

Driving onto Disney property!



Beautiful resort.




Back to the movie.





I think Walt's dream did come true. I know I spend my fair share of time talking about Disney World and Disney things.

Here we are.



Checking in.



First picture of Everything Pop. Now the surrealness begins to wear off, and we know we are here.



At check-in, we were told we were in the same building, but not in connecting rooms. We asked if there was anything connecting, and she fixed us up. That was nice, of course, but she said there was nothing indicating we requested connecting rooms. That is frustrating, because we ALWAYS request that, and I don't know how that can just vanish in the computer system. It was okay, though, and we made our way up to the new rooms they gave us in the 80's.

Upon arrival, however, we were hit with the strong odor of smoke, and with Jill pregnant, two little girls, and thirteen days (it was my room) we wanted to see if they could get that smell out. I called the front desk and told them about it, and within minutes they were sending someone up with some cleaning equipment. They gave us new rooms in the 50's, and a room manager came to apologize.

So we left the room with this poster,



and went to the other side of the resort.

We liked this section better - back by the lake.



A little Stacey TV.



In this one, you can notice the new refrigerator.



The girls had been so good all day, and they wanted to swim, so that is what they did.







I took a few minutes to walk over and get some gift shop pictures.

The sun was not shining brightly over the Hippy Dippy Pool.

Shopping bags ready?













There was Perry Platypus stuff all over the parks and resorts.











This was on a display poster. I thought it was cute.













Jarvis had told us to tell Donald hello, so every time we saw something with Donald, we thought of him.

I'm glad you think the Caribbean Beach Resort is beautiful, that is where we are staying in Dec. We have never seen it in person before.

I hate it when rooms smell like smoke, I don't blame you for changing.
