    Hey Laurie subbing in. LOVE your trip reports. They are always so detailed and fun. Your kids are so lucky. You are such a fun mom with the movie nights and all the fun stuff you plan for them on your trips. I know you are dissapointed about DW but you still will have an awesome time. Looking forward to seeing you on the 7th. Are you doing a ressie? You can pm me with the details.

    It is also getting me excited for our trip. We leave a month from next Thurs (the 29th). Our trip is also pretty well planned and we just need to buy our Regan Museum tickets.

    Can't wait to see and hear everything you did!!

    See you on the 7th!!

    Hi Kelly!! :wave2:

    I'm not super disappointed about missing out on WDW.....it's a bucket list thing for me, but going "home" will be so much easier on the twins.......so I feel we made the right decision in switching.

    The plan is to meet up at the Old Spaghetti Factory on the 7th. I'm not exactly sure if we set a time yet. (thinking around 7pm) I'm hoping someone local will be able to call them and give them an estimated head count. I think we're going to be a pretty big group (maybe they have an area for large groups??). I'll send out another message on FB to get a count on everyone that's going and hopefully someone will take the reins in finding us seats.......lol :rotfl2: Probably shouldn't show up at their doors and go......group of 40 people!!! :rolleyes1

    How fun you're going to the Reagan Museum......people keep posting cute pins and such they're getting from there!! You're trip will be here before you know it......time seems to be flying right now!!

    Looking forward to seeing you and the girls (is your mom joining in??)!!!! :hug:

    Laurie, I am super excited that it is down to two weeks for you. I find that however many days I'm going to be on a trip, that's how long before I have to really buckle down and prepare, and how many days afterward it takes me to catch up! So you must be ramping up soon.

    I keep seeing pictures of all the holiday stuff (and goodies) and wishing I was going this holiday season, but I will live vicariously through your TR and Sherry's and others' too! pixiedust:

    I over plan......lol I don't plan out rides (which is something others do) but I over think everything else!! I'm as ready as I can be.......still need to pack and go over prescriptions, etc to make sure we're covered for the entire time we're away. Of course, having more money in the bank acct would make me feel better......but the bills continue to show up and I have to pay them...... :worried:

    The holidays is so AWESOME!!! I'm hoping between the 3-4 camera's we'll come home with some great pictures!

    I saw your post. Yeah I don't mind calling. Does anyone even know if they take ressies? I hope so!!! That place is big we just ate there last night. We got there at 4:30 and by the time we left around 6 the parking lot was already full. As soon as you get a head count let me know and I will call them. I didn't see any place that would fit that many people but there might have been a room I didn't see. Just let me know and I will be happy to call.

    We won't have 40 but as soon as I hear from everyone, I'll let you know the head count. I appreciate you doing that......I have no idea if they take ressies, but for larger groups you'd at least think they'd like a heads up!! :eek:

    He looked into it and was told you can't "transfer". So his program ends the 2nd or 3rd of January. While we're in Anaheim, he's going to go apply at Disneyland. He's going to look for employment outside of the College Program...... not sure how soon he wants to move down there.....but my guess is pretty soon after ending his WDW program.

    Good luck to him. Is he done with college or will he still have more classes to take?
