I can't wait to see the new fantasyland either...belle is a favorite in our house too!

as far as clothes for D...change him into his water outfit, then change back so you will all still match for the day!

Lisa, you rock!! Thanks for the idea of how to "save" the matching outfit plan! I can just take the swimsuit in a big ziplock and then have that to put the wet swimsuit back in!! Love it!!

I'm absolutely looking forward to visiting new FL as well and have been monitoring wait times for Enchanted Tales with Belle and Under the Sea using the My Disney Experience app on my iPhone! It looks like Tales will be the one we'll line up for at rope drop and pulling FPs for Under the Sea.

Good idea on the water suits. I've heard that kids get REALLY soaked.

thanks! not my first "rodeo"...megan is not going to like me sharing this, but back in 2005 we went to DTD our last afternoon before heading to airport and she wanted to play in the fountain... knew I had sweats to change her into for the plane ride home but forgot to pack extra undies in our carry on...so she had to go without

I definitely will want to know how that FL plan works for you! I wasn't sure which way to do it, so it will be good to know! Yes, I had someone tell me the kids got EXTREMELY wet at the Splash & Play! D will love that, for sure!

Our first “real” countdown night for this trip! Yay! It makes it seem so close!!

Brian and I have always been big Phineas & Ferb fans, and D is getting to where he LOVES it too!

We have always sung “It’s 104 days til Disney vacation!!!” every time we hit that marker. This year, we decided to make it an “official” countdown night. It was even more fun that it fell on a Friday!

Here is the Menu and “Plan”:



The changed countdown calendar:



D posing with the P&F cup!



We were going to watch “A Very Perry Christmas”, but I got outvoted! So we watched the P&F episode, “Rollercoaster: The Musical”! That is one of my favorite episodes, so that was fine with me!!

Countdown Pics:





We cannot wait til it’s time for the trip! Look out, Phineas and Ferb, we’ll be there soon!

what a fun night! you are so creative with your menu's!!!

yes 60 days is PS time (priority seating) not ADR's at DLR ...but think I'm only making one for the dance trip for lunch at Carnation Cafe! just wanting to keep this trip more low key...now Megan's bday trip will be making lots of PS's and taking two tours too!

I am a big dork--I love the countdown nights! We don't do much, but they are fun!

Yay for almost PS time! Sounds great! Megan's bday trip sounds like it will have great plans!!

I've been home with a very sick little D today (stomach bug). I think I have done more laundry today than I usually do in a week! Bless his heart, he's pitiful!

To have a little lighter note, I came in here to update my PTR! So, here we go. . .another Stitch Real Life Update!

Another family winter tradition! My dad’s and my sister-in-law’s birthdays are very close together at the end of November/first of December. We always end up celebrating them together, and it’s right at holiday time, so it feels like it’s part of the holiday season!

We had a blast weekend before last, eating at Mom and Dad’s and just having fun. I love watching D & my niece, Blythe, play together:









What are some of the traditions that your family loves?

Another of our new traditions this year are some of the decorations outside. D told Brian that he needed some new decorations to “help Santa find us”. One of them is, of course, Mickey!



I love seeing him in the yard! It definitely makes me very excited for Christmas! Santa, I hope you can find us!!

I spotted that same Mickey a couple of nights ago while driving. Actually, my kids did - "Dad! There's a Santa Mickey!"

The stomach virus has worked its way through D & I both, so it's been an interesting few days around here. After hearing about the tragedy in CT, though, it really puts things in perspective--sick or not, every minute we have together is precious!

I didn't know whether to wait to update or not--as an educator and a parent, the CT story hit extremely close to me (as I know it did to most people). It did make me more determined to be more positive and to use my time to spread happiness and positivity! That said, here are a few more notes about our countdowns.

I hope all of you are enjoying your holiday season so far!!

This past Tuesday was our 100 day date!! I was so excited to see it arrive! We’ve been counting down on this one for a LONNNNG time, so it’s even more exciting to see it!

The 100-day plan:



I actually changed the countdown first thing that morning.



100 days!! Woohooooo!!

D, with the countdown calendar! Much excitement for everyone in the family!



We had our celebration planned for the evening, which turned out to be a freezing cold night. I know that’s not really surprising for December, but we’ve been having 70 degree weather! So, anything outside was out!

Our “family friends” gathered for Christmas, and for our celebration! Don’t they look excited, too??



Notice that George even made the group. . .George goes EVERYWHERE with us. Be prepared to see him more often!

For our dinner, we had awesome taco salad, prepared by the Fabulous Chef of my Household:



Doesn’t he look like Mr. Master Chef?? (Seriously, if he didn’t cook, I don’t know what we’d do! )

Dinner all fixed and ready to go!



We were supposed to watch the Handy Manny movie, but I got overruled AGAIN. I am sensing that this is becoming a pattern. SO, instead, we watched “Sofia The First: Once Upon A Princess”. For some reason, D loves this, and I think I’ve seen it 60 times!

It was a great night—capped off by D saying, “Let’s talk about the fotel ONE MORE TIME!” Love the excitement in the air!!
