I cannot wait to compare notes with you! Please pipe in and give advice, wisdom, tips ANYTIME! And I do hope you will share pictures from time to time as well.

Absolutely loved this update Oopsi!

Ok - I like to think I know your girls pretty well... But I stared at those costumes for at least 5 minutes, and I could see no major difference - other than one was more red than the other. Soooo...

Love your count down calendar... but even more - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your savings graph! That is totally awesome!!! I need one of those... And LOOK at how much you have saved already!!!! SOOOO Proud of you!!!! That is going to be an Ahhhh-mazing cruise!!

D~

The costumes look great! And I love that you have your savings up for the kids to see...it really does help with the "no"s. Love their little savings jars too. Bradey has his Disney money in two vintage Mickey and Minnie banks that I used to have in the 80's

Yay, WELCOME!!!! Yet another reason I will never be able to post pictures of FE gifts on here! Are you on our FB page? Have I been interacting with you unawares??? Anywho...you must also feel free to post any of your own advice, plans, tips, etc on here. This is our first cruise, so we need all the help we can get!

Well, since Jillian is so anti-girly I had to get the skull and crossbones costume for her to be willing to dress up with us. I can see where it may have been hard to tell...neither costume is pink and sparkly!

How cool is that? I would love to see a picture of the savings banks!

Yes, as soon as our Oct. vacation was over, I was ready to dive head first into the cruise planning, so those costumes were one of the first cruise purchases I made. Now I just have to see when some extra cash comes in to get the Halloween party costumes!

Well, Brian was adamant that we NOT take the kids out of school for more than one day at a time any longer...so, we had to change our cruise. Glad we did, since I have already made such wonderful friends with folks on this sailing.

Yay, so glad you made it over!! Stephen is going to help with the PTR? OH BOY...he will bring all sorts of craziness and antics when he shows up!

Seriously folks, this guy is HILARIOUS! Not sure what Rochelle intends to say about him in her introductions, but his sense of humor is insane! We cannot wait to share the cruise with this family!!!

Yes, exactly! Spoken from the heart of another mom of three... guess what, Mo!!! I started something new this week, too. When we go grocery/ walmart shopping each Saturday, every time they ask for something that is not on the list, they have to take a quarter from THEIR jar, and put it into MY JAR!

I'm jealous that you were able to talk your family into dressing for pirate night. I knew better than to ask so we just wore the bandanas that Disney Cruise Line left out for us.

Quackattack, I'm looking forward to "meeting" you and your family!

I love both your savings chart and the cute jars the kids are using. What a great way to teach them the cost of the trip.

The Pirate costumes are adorable! I did struggle a little like D~ to distinguish who's was who's. My guess is the black one with sparklies is Charity's?

I can't wait to see what you come up with for Halloween costumes!

Rochelle welcome to the crazy world of the DISboards! Looking forward to your introductions.
