Plans are looking good!
Thanks! I am so excited to finally get to meet you! I never thought when I joined ABB that I would meet a fellow mommy, a couple years later, at DISNEY!

I would have loved to stay in a Mod resort but this trip is for the kiddos! It looks so fun!

I was so happy to get O'hana. I think it is one of the ones that I am most excited to try.

I got his shirt this summer, planning on saving it for Disney! But.... We had a party for him and that is when we surprised the kiddos. As you can see, it was Mickey themed, so I had to have him wear it! I love it!

Ohanna is the one ressie that i will cancel almost any of my others for I really want to try it so i'm sure it will be great for you guys!

I am planning on being the mommy that puts my boys in matching shirts for each day of the trip so I have a couple picked out already and I reallly want to find another one of those so they can wear them there too!

I didn't forget about this!!!

How did 2 months fly by?! I had planned on writing in this more but school and the holidays got in the way. I'm back and only have 19 days until our trip!!!

Why:
From the moment we arrived into Orlando for our Honeymoon, I couldn't wait to take my kiddos. We were pregnant with my son and knew we wanted to wait until he was older so that he could enjoy the trip as well and remember plenty. That day came sooner than we ever expected.

In March 2012, my little guy got really sick. What started out as a virus (so we thought) ended up with him being diagnosed with a large Tumor on his liver. I won't go into many details because there are so many but will hit some highlights. He had his first surgery March 15. We were in the hospital off and on for 5 months. The first stay was 2 weeks and every other stay was a week at a time. He was such a trooper through all of this. His first surgery removed the 6 inch, 1 1/2 pound tumor and his gallbladder. Something happened and he was severely jaundiced. He lived with a tube coming out of his tummy for months. He went through numerous other little surgeries, scopes, MRI's, and other things through this. We ended up having his final surgery. They had to re-route things in his stomach. (I won't bore you with the medical jargon)

[IMG][/IMG]
This is one of my fav pictures of the kids. It was taken during one of the last hospital stays. She was always so worried for him and took great care of him when she visited.


In August, we got the all clear for him. He was finally a healthy boy. Those last months were very tough on our family. I had to quit my job, my husband stayed at the hospital every night with us and then leave every morning to go to a job that he only started 2 months before we started everything, and my daughter had to live with my parents while we stayed at the hospital. Our worlds were turned upside down.

I started really considering a Disney trip early in the summer for when he got better. Everything just kind of fell into place. I have a cousin who is flying us there and we got an awesome discount. I went back to work in August but only went back part time since I was also enrolled in school. I worked my behind off to pay for this trip. We had a party for Gabe and received so much money as a gift for our trip. The rest was paid for by us. I went through my house and sold everything we didn't need anymore. I found facebook garage sale groups online and also had 2 garage sales. The day we paid the trip in full was a glorious day!

Sorry this is so long. I tend to get wordy!
