Yes they love them. And no worries I have been reading the notes to them and I just skip over anything that might sound like WDW then I'm saving all of the notes so they can read through everything after xmas.

A very merry christmas indeed! You are going to have so much fun. My boys just turned 3 last month, we went for their birthday. They talk about Disney World every day, beg to go back, and pretend to build Goofy's roller coaster and teacup rides and meet characters. SO much fun! What a great surprise, I can't wait to hear about the trip!

So today was a very LONG day. Shawn-Brooklyn has been having diarrhea for the past 7 months straight and they finally decided to do an endoscopy and colonoscopy to see if there was a reason why since nothing has fixed it up to this point. Needless to say he couldn't eat past 8am and his procedure was at 3pm, plus it is a 2 hour drive to the hospital in Iowa City. Everything looked ok but they took some biopsies to run tests on. Lets just say my little guy was not very happy today. So when we got home and had THREE BIG GIVES at our door it made his face light up. I can't even express how thankful we are that all of you have been doing this for him. I will post pics soon. Thanks a ton!!!

This first one comes from NevadaJen. Let me tell you the timing couldn't have been better. I was just telling the kids we should make a countdown so they don't have to keep asking me...I love all of the fun facts you added! Thanks so much!

The boys thought it was funny that I chopped off half of daddy so I had to share this one

I am so glad you got it! I was starting to wonder if I had the wrong address. You day sounds positively yucky. I have been at urgent care twice in 4 days with my "healthy" kid. Medical stress just blows chunks! Glad you got some Big Gives to brighten your day! I hope the test all come out OK!

And last but not least was a package from ERICALYNN1979. They opened the box and all I heard was Taeshawn yell "it's full of suckers!" After they each put one in their mouth they realized that the amazing towels were in the box too. They are really cute..and Taeshawn realized right away who the pins were! Thank you!!!

So come to find out it had the wrong apartment number. Luckily I have it set up so UPS texts me when I have deliveries and I couldn't for the life of me figure out why I wasn't getting the tracking stickers left and then I checked online and it said customer pick up. So I went there this morning and realized the wrong apartment number was listed and the person in that apartment obviously said they weren't me so they were getting ready to return it to you lol but we got it just in time Thanks again! We have it set up on our table.

Yay for the passports & registration I was wondering if that was doable with MAW, glad to hear it is.

I agree with Lisa - start packing

So very sorry he's been dealing with that for so long, praying for a quick resolution. Sorry you had such a long day - it's so hard when they have to fast for such a long time. Yay for the Big Gives that brightened his day

Love the countdown calendar, cruise shirts, and towels - they're all fantastic.

Poor Daddy Great pic - glad you shared it.

So funny about the suckers - such a fun idea.

YAY! I'm so glad you got the package!!! I've been quietly reading the trip report, we're getting ready for the Fantasy on Saturday so I knew I had to get in on this Big Give! I had a huge bag of Dum Dums and my 4 year old had the genius idea of filling the empty space in the box with them!

I hope you guys have a magical trip, I love to see those huge smiles on their faces!
