Delta is bad about not notifying people about changes. I logged on a couple weeks ago to add my frequent flyer info and found they had changed the times on 3 of our 4 flight legs and had changed the aircraft on one and no longer had sissy and me seated together on that flight. The time changes were only minor but if I'd only caught the when checking in 24 hours before our flight I'd have been ROYALLY pissed!

Had a scary time at the airport our California flight to connect in Kansas City went out an hour and a half late so we almost missed the Orlando flight! Ended up walking from one plane to the next they held it for the dozen passengers who would have otherwise been spending the night in kc.
The Orlando airport is gorgeous all decked out for the holidays!

Glad you arrived safe and sound, although I'm almost sad you did make your connection here in KC. if you'd missed it I could have picked you up at the airport and taken you out for some of our famous BBQ! Happily though, the airport here is just small enough they are usually good about holding flights for as long as they possibly can.

Leave in just over 2 hours and can't sleep anymore. Popped up from a sound sleep and that was all she wrote. Guess will have to sleep on the plane. Thank goodness feel asleep earlier.

I didn't know where else to put this. Sorry. I need help deciding how to pack. We are there the 11-17. I am a hot box so I will be fine in short sleeves and capris. Do you put your kids in shorts or jeans ? I know to prob expect low 70s but here in Ohio where it is 30 degrees I can't relate. Does it feel hotter than a normal 73ish? Most of my dds shirts that are disney themed are long sleeves. I am afraid DH will be hot.

The best advice I could give you is layers, layers, layers...The weather can be so unpredictable and can change from one moment to the next (we live in the Bahamas so I can relate to Florida weather). I am having a hard time deciding what to pack as well, but I've decided to just pack a little bit of everything! I will pack one or two pairs of long pants as well as one or two pairs of capris, some short sleeved shirts, some long sleeved shirts, my tennis shoes, socks, a pair of flipflops, a cotton zip up hooded jacket. For my girls I'm pretty much packing the same things and all of their long pants are cotton so they'll be comfortable, especially if it's going to be a long day! When packing for my girls, I don't really think about/worry about if their clothes are Disney themed or not...I just pack anything acceptable that can be mixed and matched! Hope that helps a little!!! Good luck and have a great trip

That is not a house, it is a zoo!! Love it!!

Yay, you are there!! I agree, I would want something different than what I see at home. I would say all the Disney resorts are very different than Ohio, so I am safe.

SAT887 - thank you so much for taking the time to take & post pictures, sharing your vacation with us. Your children are beautiful

Well, I've had an interesting day <<<< haha that smilie is in no way connected to that sentence, I just love yo-yo's

I'm sitting on my back deck contemplating *sighs* the word 'contemplating' makes it sound so interesting .... do I do the dishwasher now or later, not so interesting.

There is a dog sitting on the other side of my fence, giving me that look Its odd to have a dog just wandering around on its own so I went out to see him. Instead of running away, he ran to me, all excited. The poor thing was SUPER skinny, you can see every bone. Although, weirdly, his coat was in good condition. He was so friendly and so excited to be petted. He has a collar but no name tag. Its obvious he is lost and hasn't eaten for a while so I take him in the garage. I bring him food and water and he eats and drinks them both in no time. DH comes down to see him, sits with him and the dog immediately falls asleep - he was sooooo tired, he's probably been awake, wandering lost for days

So anyways .... he is in my garage now fast asleep on a huge bed of blankets

Tomorrow we will take him to our vet to be scanned for a chip. If he isn't chipped I will put some signs up. I have already posted on our Animal Shelter FB pages.

However, we have already named him ..... and worked out where he will sleep ....
Sounds like he came to the right house!!! I hate to hear of animals lost/homeless/hungry, but it also affects me when I read of people finding animals/not being able to find their owner etc. and since they can't keep the animal for one reason or another they have to take it to a shelter/pound and that breaks my heart even more So, it sounds like he found a safe place for now
