It started out by me adding a little sparkle to a hooded sweatshirt.


This is the finished product




It took me a lot longer than I thought it would. I ended up cutting out each individual feather and hand sewing everyone of them on. In fact, the sparkle in the beginning was all hand sewn as well. But she is very happy with it and now tries to fly on a regular basis!
wow that is amazing

Posting from the physical therapist office where they are working on my ankle. Hopefully this doesn't cause too much discomfort with the trip.

Excited to be under 30 days until we leave. The kids are never going to believe us again for anything! I'm working on copying DVDs to my iPads for the drive. My wife and DD2 are gone until Tuesday so it's just me and DD1 getting some good Daddy/daughter time.

Hi everyone! We are going to be staying at the Polynesian from Nov 9-13th. We are celebrating my twin boys' 4th birthday. Im so excited!!

I never gave much thought to MVMCP until now when I found this thread. DO you think with 4 year olds the cost is worth it? I guess I have to research the party now.

Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope any and everyone with health issues is having a better day today. I must say though I've joined the club. Woke up this morning and could not move my left side from my neck to my foot. Just got out the bed and started moving around about 1130am EST. Now I'm sneezing like crazy. UGH! Anyway, wishing everyone a happy and Blessed Thurs. and wonderful Disney planning times.

disneychic2- GREAT Costume!!! My DD5 would LOVE it!

Does anyone have any suggestions about ADR's when WDW changes park open times.

I have a couple of ADR's that where before park open times, like CRT at 8:05 The park was supposed to open at 9:00 and now WDW has changed it to 8am.... Do I cancel my ADR knowing I am not likely to get another, or do I not make to Rope drop and adjust my touring plan accordingly ??

Unfortunately that is up to you, early mornings are valuable, but so were those ADRs! What is the crowd level like the days you are there, and if you had to pick would you rather eat at those restaurants or get one or two more rides in?

Kinda figured that would be the response. I guess i'll be keeping most of my ADR's and worry about getting on rides once we are there.

I wonder how many times I will rebook my rental car between now and Nov 15th. I think I have booked it at least 10 times in the past year. LOL. I have it now down to under $315 (including taxes) for a minivan for 10 days over Thanskgiving! That is much better than I anticipated originally. My original booking was for a car for $415. I'm super excited to have a minivan as that will save us a car having to park.

I still need to decide on who I want to rent a stroller from. I'm also trying to convince my parents to let me rent my mom and ECV for the week. I need to do more research on ECV rental companies. (My mom is going through cancer treatments and has problems walking do to arthritis. I don't want her to wear herself out)

I would just change my touring plan. It stinks but I personally would not give up CRT.

Well, look at it this way, you'll still be there ahead of a lot of people who can't get up and at em that early. It would have been ideal to have the park open at 9, but chances are, you wouldn't have been finished at CRT by then anyway. I think you'll be fine and the crowds won't be that much of a factor that early. I hope it works out for you!

Do you add yours from photobucket? That's where mine came from and when you click on the picture in your album, mouse over the top of the pic and it will give you the option to resize the pic. I chose 400x400. Hope that helps.

ETA: Look how close Mickey is to the edge of the castle in my ticker!!!!

Let me just say that I don't know why I didn't just multi-quote like I usually do, but I guess I didn't read closely enough before quoting.

Will you be on crutches or anything for the trip? I must have missed something in the time I was gone from the thread. Hope you'll still be able to enjoy your trip!

Your girls are going to be so excited to be going to Disney, they'll forget all about your deceit! Plus, you HAVE been telling them you're going to Disney!!

So glad you get a chance for Father/Daughter time. I never spent any special time with my Dad. He just didn't know how to be a dad to girls. You're building great memories that will last their lifetime! Good for you.
