Yep we love our plates too!! She is a sweet aunt!!

Well on the life front since the last time I was on.......both of my boys had the flu. UGH!!! It was a rough week!! I took off Monday and Tuesday, DH took off Wednesday and Thursday. Both boys FINALLY made it back to school on Friday. They hardly ever catch anything (DS10 had perfect attendance last school year but not at all this one....). Luckily it looks like DH and I may have escaped without catching it.



I'm beyond excited about Disney and really wish we could leave tomorrow!!! I'm about to pay off my room reservation. Then I'll work on AP's. I can't decide if I should just go ahead and buy the APs from the start or if I should book a package for the first two nights to save a little on tickets and then upgrade to APs while we are there so that it is cheaper. What do you all think?

Glad your boys are feeling better. I'm happy you & your DH didn't catch it. Although, I hope you knocked on wood when you said that. Seems everytime I say something like. "oh everyones good", someone get sick.

For me it would depend on how much I saved when all was said and done. To me if it is only $10 or $20 I would value the time in the park more than time spent in line to exchange the tickets. That's just me. Either way... you're getting AP's. HOW COOL IS THAT?!

Also following over from Facebook. Loving your PTR so far. It looks like we will both be at SWW on June 1st. Maybe we will see each other. I see you know about D. I love her work. She gave me a little change purse when I saw her in March. One of these days I will get one of those bags.

Can't wait to read more.

What happened with your student at Christmas time was really touching. What a sweet child.

Nice intros. I am amazed at how well you have kept it a surprise.

You are so talented. I can sew a button and that's the extent of my sewing capabilities.

Oooh, BCV! How nice!

I need to get through to the end. I'm curious to find out if you chose Pop for 2 nights? Did you get a PAP? Univesal or not?

At Disney Quest, you don't pay once you are in the building. They do have a few additional things you can buy, food, CDs, etc.

I just asked today in the fb group if anyone else was going to SWW on June 1. I see you will be there too. Corinne and I are planning to meet somewhere at some point in the day. We missed each other on 2 other trips.

I think you picked great choices for ADRs.

Love the plates!

I've read through the whole PTR. I see Universal is out, DQ is in.

Yep I think quite a few of us will be at HS on June 1. We are starting our trip with a bang as I expect that to be a PACKED park that day! Yes I love D~'s work!! If only I could ever be that good!

I found out on another PTR that I'm following that there was a Facebook page just for people going in May and one for people going in June. After I joined there, I shared about my PTR and these lovely ladies are joining us for the "fun". LOL.....

I have some very sweet children this year at school.

About the secret - I have DS6 sitting here talking my ear off about nothing while I type this and he has NO idea that I'm talking about Disney because he's not paying attention. My biggest fear is that one of them will check the mail when our final MYW package comes in (if we get one).

Aww thanks, I'm still learning a lot with sewing. I enjoy it though.

Yes BCV!! I can't wait!! It's a dream come true. I'm a moderate gal on a dream vacation!

We still don't have a room for the first two nights. I'm very undecided on whether we should book with the deal out now or not.

Yep it looks like a couple of us will be in HS on June 1! Maybe we will see each other!

We are getting a PAP but not going to Universal until the fall. I think the water parks/DQ are a better deal right now for about the same price.

I hope we like our ADR's too. It will be the first time we try most of those places.

Well guys I'm running out the door to bring DS10 to soccer practice. I ask myself EVERY DAY why we allowed him to be in year-round competitive soccer. GEEZ....I get tired of practice. lol......

I'll see you all later!

Hey! I followed you over from Facebook. So, the trip is still a complete surprise? We actually surprised our son with a trip to Disney in 2008. We often take road trips and we told him that we were taking a road trip and would stop wherever our car took us. Even after driving 800 miles, he had no idea where we were until we got to a mileage sign that said 20 miles to Disney. He almost pee'd his pants.

Cool! I may have to do more research on FB disney pages.

I hear that a lot with year round soccer kids parents. OUr 3 oldest did soccer, but never competative. We did have competative color guard though. That was a crazy enough schedule!

Yes the trip is STILL a complete surprise!! I am enjoying your TR but haven't commented because I've been reading it on my phone! Yes I know but my laptop is finally up and running so I'll be able to finish reading it soon!

Awww, hope your sweet DD is beginning to feel better! My boys just had the flu. I didn't find it bad at all this year for them but they did have the fever and fatigue (no other symptoms).

Yeah it is tiring but DS really enjoys it. At least now that he's older, I don't have to stay at practice anymore.
