Yay for paying off the trip! I know that's an exhilarating feeling!
So glad to have you back, Lisa...cannot wait to meet you next month!

LOVING your TR. Know what I love even more? It was a loooong trip for you, so the TR will be loooong....and funny, and crazy, and FUN!!!

It looks like you had a fun family night with the kids.
Kathy, I am so proud of myself at the moment...I am still hanging with EVERY update of your TR! It took me a while to learn how to follow TR's with lots of followers and commenters, but I have finally got the hang of it!

We do too! Disney Scene-It and Disney Cranium are two of our favorite games to play... now I just need to get Disney Headbandz!

So, now that your trip is paid off, do you still have other parts to save for? Does that include just the trip, or all all the extras (souveniers, travel expenses, etc...) paid off too?

D~
Well, we do still have a bit of saving to do, mostly gratuity...which is a LOT. But as far as souveniers and excursions I am proud to say, we are almost there. With the onboard credit we got for booking through a travel agent, and the gift cards we have earned with our Disney Rewards Visa, it looks like we are sitting pretty.

We will use August and September to save a bit of cash for port souvies, but other than that we are golden.

Quackattack is Back!!!

Fellow Cruisers! Quackattack has returned.

So, I have been feeling a little bummed and not feeling much like planning for our cruise. I was concerned that we might not get to cruise after all. Our vacation budget has been taking big hits....
Unexpected Car maintenance, for both vehicles, new tires, DH emergency hospital stay (not to mention the fear that DH would not be well enough to cruise.), new septic pump, unexpected propane refill at the end of winter, invisible fence for an overactive 10 month old puppy, vet bills and the list goes on and on. BTW, DH's truck is in the shop now and he has a rental car. $$$

Cruise planning is back in full swing. DH is doing very well. We may have to forgo some of the extras but a lean Disney cruise is better than no cruise at all. And, cruising with DH is better than cruising without him.

My pirate costume is almost done, I just need a few accessories. Pirate Night costumes for DH and DS are not as far along.

Halloween costumes are coming along nicely. This has been a fun project and one I thought I could continue working on even if we did cancel. It could still be used for a future cruise if we had to cancel.

The decision has been made to travel with the Oopsi Family and we are all staying at the CI&S the night before the cruise. This will be so fun.

Next fun activity: June Movie Night with the Oopsi Family.

Oh heavens, Quack, you've had a lot on your plate lately. I'm happy that everything is looking up and you're still able to cruise with Oopsi.

I know you all have gone through so much. It amazes me that no matter what you go through, your attitudes and outlook are ALWAYS CHEERFUL! Your family is amazing...simply amazing. And we are so blessed to call you friends!

That being said...I am SO GLAD to here the trip is still on. We will have such a great time! Our costumes are slowly coming together as well. Just ordered part of Charity's costume today, as a matter of fact.

Can I just say once again that I am SUPER EXCITED about this particular movie night! I have had so much fun planning and preparing for it, like I get so excited and giddy pulling it all together. It's going to be a great night!

Weekly Disney Activity #15

So, the kids were gone in the evenings last week to VBS...but that didn't stop me from doing the Disney activity, just for Brian and I! It was a simple one, and part of the dinner menu, but I did surprise Brian with it. He was busy working on his schoolwork, and was quite surprised when he walked into the kitchen to check on me and found this little treat cooking:



Not only would we be having "brinner", which is always a family favorite...but we were having Mickey Pancakes!!!



I made Brian pose for a "happy" Disney Activity Night picture:



And since I am a horrible photographer, and the plate part of the picture is blurry- here is just a plate picture for you:

Great job on the Mickey pancake... I always butcher them.

Annnd... I think you should have done a selfie with Brian, poor guy looks like he'd enjoy some company.

Aw man, now I want some Mickey pancakes. Well I think I'd rather have a Mickey waffle, they are my favorite. One of these days I'm going to order one of the Mickey waffle makers.

Quackattack, I am so sorry to hear all of your troubles (I feel your pain), but glad to know that hubby will be able to make it on the cruise with all of you.

Nice job on the pancakes, Connie. My DH makes those for me whenever we have pancakes at home. His often, unfortunately, end up looking like bunnies.
