This is the sort of trees we set up...



We drive so space is not an issue for decorations. But mostly what we decorate with will fit into a grocery bag or two.

Window cling decals are great for the hotel doors too....

Yup, the tiaras are available on Amazon, and most bridal website have a god selection too. I usually buy from Ebay , they come from China but they are reliable for the most part and they come pretty quickly.
Its one of those extra things I do for the girls which they look forward to putting on every morning.

Lately we feel like we are suiting up when we leave to hotel. Tiaras, our family custom tee shirt, magic bands, lanyards, camera bags, autograph books, etc etc.....
Hmm. DD might need a new, special tiara, although I did already get her Minnie ears with interchangeable bows. And maybe I'll just get myself a tiara too, because I know MY DH, and it would not cross his mind for a second to get them for us! Lol!

With only 2 weeks til the trip, I need some of that anti sicky pixie dust that was going around. We've had some yucky stomach bug that drags on forever. One minute you feel fine, the next blah. Everyone that's had it, has it for at least a week. Here's hoping it's almost over for us. May take off this afternoon and come home and bleach the house! At least I started packing last week when I stayed home when DD had it.

Happy Friday everyone!

It's 47 here! I'd take 65.

But then again if it stays 47 I can pack this weekend.

WAIT!!! isn't there heat in the room too?
Oh well at 65 I won't be using it.
I don't know how cold it got the last 2 nights here, but I caved and turned on the heat.

I will take 65 in a heartbeat.


My MB should be arriving today.

I said to my husband last night, "Xipotec ordered tiaras for his wife and daughter, where's my tiara?" I got the Mr. Spock raised eyebrow in return. He may be considering commitment at this point. I did look at some adult tiaras last night on Amazon just for giggles. There were some really nice ones for $20. I'm not really the tiara type though.

I finally caved yesterday morning and turned on the heat too. It was 59 degrees in the house when I woke up and since it was in the low 30's out it was just going to get colder. My mom is up right now too and she can't tolerate the cold the way I can. Right now it is 31 degrees out and we are expecting a high of 53. I hope it stays like this so that I can really appreciate Florida when we get down there.

Yay on your MB's!

*lol* Last year in addition to having a tree delivered to our room, I decided I wanted Mickey garland. I bought garland with holly leaves, punched out Mickey heads and hand-stitched them to the garland to look like berries. I don't know what I was thinking with that project. What a PITA! Turned out cute though; you can see it in my sig under 12 Days of Christmas.

The first number on the thermometer this morning is a 3. Ugh. Only 6 more days!

Back when BBB still did adults, I booked DSis an appointment. I bought her a black t-shirt with Princess Stephanie in rhinestones. When she wears the shirt and tiara CMs address her as Princess.

OMG, you have far too much energy for one person! Very cute on the Mickey garland.

These are nice. We fly so last year I had a pre-lit tabletop tree shipped to the resort from Amazon. I made character ornaments with my Silhouette. I made them out of paper so they were light and nothing breakable. And I had a few plastic decorations from Target.

As you can see from my sig, the creative pixie dust is one of my favorite parts of the trip. I had to be restrained this trip because we're not staying onsite and DS still thinks most of it comes from Mickey. But I may have purchased a few items at the party store for our Pirate day. ;-)

Thanks! I know you want to please me cause you just can't help it.

Awe! you buy them one each trip? Awe! Can you adopt me? I want to vacation with your family. Then again the suiting up sounds kind of like work. LOL But then again you have it all lined up for them.

Congratulations on being a good man with a great sense of Disney and love for your DW and DD. They are two lucky ladies!
