Finally all caught up!

Love all of the pictures of the kids! They look like they were having the best time together! How fun. And you and Jodi look like you were having a great time too!

The fog looks wild! I remember when we were in WDW this past July...since it was so humid, the fog usually didn't burn off until around 11AM during the time we were there. Not good for my hair!

Looking forward to seeing where you ended up that day!

James Island---- awwww. I miss my home.

What part of PA are you from? We lived there for a bit- near PGH.
Aww we're going to miss each other . Sorry I didn' t mean to make you home sick .
I'm from south central PA. York county more specifically. We're about 20 minutes south of Harrisburg.

I am loving this review!!!

What fun pictures of the kids! Glad they had such fun being "on their own" together.
Too bad about the fog - it would have been a fun morning to see the show from there.

Hi Rinky!

The curling iron - that story makes me glad I have really short hair. But I'm happy you were able to find a replacement fairly easily.

Epcot? Maybe? Hmmmmm...

Hello long lost friend! I bet you've already made it back across the pond since the last time I was on the DIS. I hope you and your girls are doing well. I didn't even notice if you had a ticker. I need to go back and snoop b/c I know you must have some fabulous trip on the horizon! I think you need to go to Aulani next and give us a full report!

Hey Lauren I wondered where you had been!!

Welcome!

So glad you are joining us for another TR! Yes, the boys are growing up. Wish I knew how to stop that!!

Overall I would say the second week of December is a good time to go. It's value season, so it's cheaper. It's not terribly crowded. More crowded than our late August trip, but less crowded than the beginning of May. The weather was decent and we got to see tons of Christmas decorations!!

Thanks Lauren! Yes, it was a great morning for all of us. So fun!

The fog was crazy. And so was my hair!

They really did. They felt so grown up!

Yeah, the fog was kind of a bummer. At least we could still hear the show though!

I'm usually wishing I had short hair when I'm at WDW!!

Great pics Shelly!


Love how grown up the kids were going off on their own like that.

Must have been great to be able to hear the opening ceremony at MK from your resort

Well that will sure be nice to get away from this nasty cold and go to Florida next month! Will you take the kids? Will you make it to WDW at all? Maybe DTD?
No we are not taking kids, b/c we'll be looking at condos. We're just going for 3 days.

He got the ok today. Someone's calling later w/ the package details. I can't believe this is actually happening!! I am so nervous and excited.

We will definately get to DTD for dinner and shopping!!

Thanks Shelly!!!!

He is now starting his job on Feb.18 UGH!!!!! Now we need to switch the flights. He's been in contact with a realtor and we may fly down next weekend instead.

I am a little stressed with the change of date I thought I had a good month left.

Congrats!!

I'm sure it will be stressful for awhile, but it will all work out in the end.
