Hooray for an update!

If only you would have picked the week before Thanksgiving, then we could have met up! Oh well, hopefully our trips will overlap some day! I'm jealous that you and Jodi will be there at the same time!

I'm so glad that you are staying at the Poly again! I know how much you love it there. And you are going to just love the GF. It is so beautiful, especially at Christmas time!

We are taking the girls out of school for our November trip. DD11 will miss 5 days, and my older girls will miss three. Our school district is also good about letting the kids miss school for family vacations. My older girls who are in college have already talked to their professors, and the professors told them to not even worry about missing school. It helps that they are good students and don't usually miss classes. So luckily things all worked out! Family vacations are so important anyways, kids are only young for so long!

Loved the update!

So yay an update!!!!! All this and MORE, much MORE!!!


Felt a little like I was at an infomercial. A GOOD informercial, not one of those dumb rotisserie chicken infomercials where you just 'Set it and Forget it'. I mean, because honestly... what the heck do you do if you're baking chicken in the oven? You Set it and forget it till it's done.
What the heck ever. (My humble apologies to anyone who owns the Ronco rotisserie machine.)

Okay so was that convo we had when you finally chose your date entertaining or what? I can't believe you had to go thru all those weeks just to get to the one you chose.

And I just love that your DH knew that we'd be going the same week.
Of course.

I'm very happy that you are able to stay at two beautiful resorts this trip, and since one of them I will be at and the other you just love.... what could go wrong??

Best. Trip. Evah.

Book it!!!!!!!!!!


Woo Hoo.... 48 Days!



Well, I'm glad you made it home safely!! There were A LOT of very important matters to be discussed!

And yes - it is going to be the Best Trip Evah!! If we can top August 2011 that is! It will be hard. But I totally think we can do it.

I know it's hard to get out of the funk of being back from WDW and get back into the swing of reality. Can't wait to hear all about Cole's first trip!

Yes, you are so right!! I did it just for them. It was really the best thing for them to miss another day of school.

I have a feeling this trip will be magical, between your favorite resort, the other deluxe resort , Jodi's family being there at the same time, and all the Christmas decorations everywhere.
Are you serious??? And you were the only one to notice that!

GRAND FLORIDIAN!! Guess maybe I should go back and add that in there.....

I think it's going to be a very magical trip too! So excited!!

I know. I'm starting to think our trips will never overlap and I won't ever get to meet you in person. It's got to happen one of these times, right??

That's good that your girls won't have any problems with missing school. One less thing to worry about! I know my boys will be fine. I wouldn't take them out if they weren't good students. I just dread all the make up work. It's always so much.

But you are right - family vacations are so important and the kids are only kids for so long.

I would have been here earlier today, but I was busy cleaning out my





closet.


I love your BB story! I didn't know all the details of how this trip came to be. As the wife of a hunter, I commend you on being so acommodating to pick a buck-free week. I hope your DH realizes what a lucky man he is! That is so funny how he was not at all surprised that you would be there the same time as Jodi and family. I think he's happy as long as you're happy. I hope you realize what a lucky lady you are!

I hesitate to say this.......but I think this will be your best trip ever!!!

I remember a few trips ago when you went in November. I just loved all the pics of the decorations and your videos of the Osborne lights. So I'm really looking forward to some new stories and pics.

Cool...we are going to be there at the same time! We are at 22 days today- three weeks from tomorrow we will be in WDW!
We were in WDW from 11/11-11/17 last year, so our dates are only different by two days. We love this time of year...low crowds, great weather, and Christmas decorations! We also went this week in 2006. Hopefully we will see each other somewhere! We are staying at the Poly...my daughters are 21, 19, and 11. Have a great trip, and maybe we will see each other!

Hope you got that closet all cleaned out!!


I thought you might be the one person on here who understood the whole deer season story!! Good grief. What a nightmare that was trying to accommodate everyone and everything! But it all ended well!


NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you just say it would be 'my best trip ever'???????? I think I must have misunderstood you.....You know YOU are not allowed to say that!!!!!!!



So anyway -- yes I am very excited to see and take lots of pics and video of the lights and decorations!!

Okay, I'm going to edit my post and add in where we are staying those 2 free nights!

I have to confess that I am a lurker who has enjoyed reading your trip reports! I am starting to come out of my shell now and wanted to tell you that I am on board and excited about following along!

Sincerely,
