Figment Chick Love your bags! I wish I was not so cheap but I am so I doubt I will ever buy one.

Sounds like me finding the bargains for things I like.
And agree with the grandma dresser idea. I'm sure she would prefer that too.
A girl has to have nice things to keep her sanity between the next nice dream.

I love them all. Maybe this time, I will splurge and buy myself one.

I love that last Dooney, very cute. One of the owner's of the company I work for has a Dooney from her Aulani trip. I can't tell if I want it so much because it is so cute or because I would LOVE to go to Aulani!

My daughter showed me her school handbook today that basically says 5 absences a year for a family vaca is ok I know not everyone is pro pulling kids out for vaca but I do it and we never had to pull out a kid from high school before so I was a wee bit nervous. Loved reading that today!

66 days OMG ! I cant believe I have kept the secret for so long. No one in the family knows! Going to surprise Wifey this week. She lost her Dad a few moths back to Pancreatic cancer and they were very very close. I had a rough time planning all this during his illness and wasnt sure if I should keep it up. Now I am glad I did, it will be exactly what she needs.... Planning the big reveal to her now...kids do not find out till night we leave!

I LOVE these bags. I already planned on buying myself one for my birthday, since we arrive on my day. :rofl: I've actually already decided to get #1. Can't wait. A quick question though, is there a lot of room inside it?

I'm always nervous, too, but I take vacation when I can (around tax returns, audits and financials) and my theory is: they are my kids and the school district can suck it! Seriously, though, my kids are great students and I've already had a chat with Amy's high school principal and I met Quinn's kindergarten teacher last night. The kindergarten teacher said that I have to bring her. I said, no problem. As for Amy, the good thing is the marking period ends on Nov 6th, which is 4 school days after we leave (which means it's the same for Kyle in middle school). I am just going to very nicely ask the teachers if Amy and Kyle can take any tests and finish up work the week & two days prior so that they won't have any work to make up when we get back (and rush because the MP is already over).

Whew....sorry about my long-windedness. But I'm glad the handbook works out for you.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. But I am sure your wife and children will not only be surprised, but really love that you did this for them.

It actually does have a lot of room. Personally, I don't like cross-body bags and I may have to switch this one out for a newer model. lol No, seriously, I may sell this one and get another in it's place. But I used in on our trip to NYC to hold all my stuff: phone, wallet, subway maps, directions, ticket confirmations, etc. And it worked well. If you'd like, tomorrow I can take a shot of the interior and let you see the space (can't do it tonight as I am booked to dye Amy's hair scarlet for the first day of school tomorrow).

That is really thoughtful of you and I'm sure your DW will appreciate it. I am all for surprises and have surprised our kids with almost every trip to WDW; they even said they enjoy it more when we surprise them.

As far as the D&B bags go, I love them too! But I am also too cheap to ever buy one and I'm also a closeted WDW freak. I will blog all day and help friends plan trips, but don't have things in my wardrobe or house Disney. My friends and family already think I'm crazy enough! If I started doing that I think they'd have me committed.

That is very sweet. In this really weird way Disney planning kept me sane when my mom died. I bet she will love getting to surprise the kids with you.

Yeah that is pretty much how I feel. I don't really care if they have a problem with me, I just don't want the kids to have to deal with any problems (which so far no one has) If any of the kids struggle with learning I will re-evaluate and maybe not pull them, but so far so good

Yesterday my daughter told me the chorus goes to Disney every other year, so April 2015. Um, I need to chaperone!!
