I'd still hold out a little hope that it might happen. I've seen them extend dates before.

I am still reading. Yay for saving $300!! Love the Little Mermaid stuff. I had to turn my computer when I was reading your post because DH has been bugging me to purchase the movie for our daughters. I said no maybe for Christmas because we just bought a bunch of Disney movies for them. I know if he saw your post he would start bugging me again...lol

You have been really busy. Love the pictures. Your girls are too cute.

Well, and I've heard there is a FD pin floating around… who knows? Maybe I'll get that? But I'm happy with what I have right now! I upgraded and still saved!

You should buy it!! Of course, we've watched about 80 million times this week!!! We have a HD tv, but a basic DVD player and I told my husband that it was time for a HD dvd/blu-ray player and he's like a freaking kid about to get dessert!

I'm super happy!!! I'm excited about the SB trip, but I am still a little sad about missing the Christmas time…

OMG! I can't sleep… you wanna know WHY?? Well…. It's kinda a secret…








Except that I STINK at keeping secrets…..







But I can't just come out and say it, because SOMEONE might find out…. and that someone would be Cortlyn…




My oldest….





Who was just selected to be the:

Lil Princess for the EIU Homecoming!!!!!!


I"m so excited I can't stand it!!! See… they have a "lil prince/princess" each year… you have to be the child of a student or faculty member. And Cortlyn was IT! I'm so excited!!! Can you tell?!?!??!?!?! She's gonna be a PRINCESS!!!! I suppose this is good training for her future with Disney, right?

She will be "crowned" on Monday night and ride in a parade next Saturday! I can't wait!! And of COURSE there will be pictures!

Thank you guys!!! I'm super excited!!! She's going to have SO much fun! Hard part will be trying to find a Blue dress for her, but I'm hoping to find something in a store! Fingers Crossed! I hate that it's so last minute- If I had known earlier this week I could have ordered something. Oh well!

That's so exciting! Tell her that Mrs. Lisa said congratulations!

If she's a Princess does that make you a Queen?

So, we decided to tell our Lil Princess and we went shopping today for her dress. She was so excited to pick out a dress! I was worried that we wouldn't have enough time to search if I waited until Monday to shop. Turns out it didn't matter- we found the dress at the first store we went to! I'm a girl… I know how this stuff works! Of course, I found my wedding dress at the first shop I went to as well… so I guess I shouldn't be surprised!

Anyway, so she was really excited and of course we didn't think about recording telling her! I know- what kind of parents are we?!?! Anyway, she has been excited and had a few moments of her pride growing a bit too much… Already had to nip that in the bud! Can't be having my Lil Princess turning into Princess Amber! (Sofia the first reference… sorry if that's below your TV watching standards! It is on heavy rotation at our house!)

Anyway, so here is the dress (with a border picked out by Cortlyn!)


(Of course this stupid photobucket thing makes me crazy… it's showing sideways and without the border. Which I'm SURE you can see it properly. )

Yay for Cort being the Lil Princess!! Her dress is adorable! Thankfully mommy didn't have to shop all weekend! Is she practicing her princess wave?

That's awesome that you applied the RO discount!!! $300 savings is definitely a nice chunk in your wallet! AND a view upgrade!

You are so cute with the Little Mermaid DVD. That's Em's favorite Disney movie so I'm surprised she hasn't mentioned getting it.
