I got the trading pins I bought in the mail today. I'm pretty happy with the assortment -- not too many that I actually want to keep, so a good lot of traders.

I finished my Christmas shopping (I think!) this morning. Unless I figure out that Dale over-spent this year, while I tried to cut back. Several boxes have arrived with his name on them, with several of them alluding to having Disney origins (Disneystore.com). He's not usually the type to shop online and ahead of time, so I'm mystified.

I mailed boxes to Dale's two brothers and his parents today, also. Check one more thing off my list!

I can't believe that in 2 weeks I'll be packing the car and getting ready to hit the road. I also can't believe that in 3 weeks it'll all be over. This is the part of the anticipation that I both love and dread. I am getting so excited about the trip, but also dreading that let-down that comes when it's all over.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

One kid is home from school, and just about to go get the other one. Then it's officially Christmas break!

In 10 days we'll be packing up to leave and in 11 days we'll be at Disney World! Almost time for the single-digit dance!

From here through Christmas, I probably won't have much DIS time. My family is coming tonight, and from here through Christmas we'll be spending a lot of family time. My favorite thing about Christmas is being with my family.

Brad and Drew are SO EXCITED about Christmas -- Drew's been counting down the days and he can hardly wait.

Once Christmas is over, I have to start taking down Christmas decorations so they can be put away before we leave. That will kind of be a bummer. I love how the house looks at Christmas - the pretty trees, the lights outside. But I know that if I wait until we get home to take it down, it'll make me sadder, so I have to do it next week.

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas and hope you did too! Now, we're on the full-court-press to our trip!

Drew wanted to know if we were leaving yesterday for Disney. This morning, he wanted to know if we are leaving today, or tomorrow. I've told him not till Monday, but you know how kids are with time .

I'm plowing through my To Do list. Yesterday I updated the checkbook from all the last-minute shopping and entered payments for the upcoming bills that will be due between the 30th and the 6th. I still have a couple to do today. I did manage to get to Target yesterday and get some of their super-cute Disney wrapping paper and bags half-price, plus a set of the Minnie Mouse ornaments for my Disney tree. Then yesterday afternoon I took down my Disney tree. Today I will take down all the ornaments off the big tree, take down my Nativity sets and undecorate the mantle.

I want to get a lot done today because HORROR! we still haven't seen Frozen yet and we talked about going to a matinee tomorrow. Seems like a good way to whet our Disney appetite!

I hope to check in again before we head out Monday afternoon!

Claire, Happy Birthday and Happy New Year. I wish I had known you were doing this (you should have told me)! I hope you have a most magical trip.

Thanks, Kathy. We had a terrific time! My hubby came down sick Friday night and didn't do much yesterday; came home and took him to the doctor to find out he has the flu. Since we were all cooped up in the car today on the way home, I'm fervently hoping and praying the boys and I stay well.
