I suggested we go shopping in the morning for another pair of shoes and more pants. My husband is threatening to stay at home as it is chaotic here. Of course we are way over packing. I hope we get to meet some of you on the cruise. It is too late for us to sign up for the various experiences planned by the group but hope to meet up with some of you. Anyone with a child our son's age, I hope they can make friends.

We had 3 checked bags and 4 carry ons (but 3 were small backpacks). DH thought I was way over packing until he went looking for a sweater to wear to dinner with LindaBabe (which was so delightful, thank you for calling, Linda). He commented on how last cruise he had two v-neck sweaters that he wore a lot and a sweatshirt, why didn't he bring them. Well, that would have been another checked bag....so I think it's off today to buy him 'something' but where will we put it?

The cell phone problem is solved for me...I accidentally left it at my son's. It was going to cost $64 to overnight so I said no thank you.

I also left a blouse hanging up in his closet and my luggage tags for Disney. Ya know, I think I'll manage! Can't wait for tomorrow.

See y'all in 27 hours or so.

Welcome to all of those who have landed in CA! I hope you enjoy your day(s) before we board tomorrow!

I am sitting on the ouch right now having a cup of coffee before I get going on a very busy day. Ds has a baseball lesson at 11 with baseball address verification right after. Then we will go get lunch and then head over to Home Depot for some timers for my xmas lights. I will also be picking up outdoor holiday decor because we will be going to the cemetary to decorate Dh's site for xmas. Then we will come home where I need to finish packing. I have everyone packed but ds7. I kept telling him all week that I wasn't going to pack him until the last minute that way if he didn't stop giving me a hard time, I wouldn't need to unpack him when I left him home with grandma!

I can't believe the big day is tomorrow!

Made it to Valencia at 1:30 this morning. WE are visiting friends and sleeping at SILs house in Irvine tonight. For the 3 of us we have 4 large bags, 1 small and 2 carryon sized. Plus DS insisted on his backpack, which is carrying Skittles, a mini etch-a-sketch and his monkey. Glad to read we don't have much more than everyone else.
I have a short to-do list: magnet page, water shoes for DH, Disney Outlet, and CVS to use up extra bucks. I wish some of those could be at the same store.

So excited for tomorrow!

Waiting

We drove from Houston to Austin yesterday. Had dinner with friends and we are trying to talk them into an upcoming Disney Cruise out of Galveston. I also went to the Disney Outlet to get my ornaments yesterday. Our flight doesn't leave Austin until 5:30. Wish we were here already. That is a lesson learned. Should have gone early and gone to DL.
I simply can not wait. Sherry

Checking in to say ! Moriah and I fly out of Reno at 3:30 p.m. today and will meet Chris (DH) in LAX since he's flying out of another airport. We are in the process of moving to southern NV and DH has been living there since Sept 30, so we are looking forward to having "family" time together on our cruise.

Usually I'm still packing last minute, but this time I'm done early and it feels great!

Are the DISboard teens (Vibe) meeting up somewhere on Sunday before the "official" meet & greet in Vibe?

See you soon!

You should all go visit my dad at Disneyland hotel

Welcome to all who are now in the area! We will be driving down soon.

For those of you at Disneyland, my dad is a CM and is on tonight from 4-9 or so. Go visit him and get your picture taken with him! He will be sitting in the disneyland hotel wearing a red suit, white beard and giving out candy canes

See you all soon!

Dinner was VERY fun. I am SO glad we didn't try to walk back last night - it took me a solid 20 minutes this morning. I walked all the way to Ports o'call. It was a LOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooong way!
