    Have you thought about the Alice in Wonderland breakfast at 1900 Park Faire? We're probably going to end up at the dinner there in 2010 (get our princess fix in and only use one credit, plus I do hear that the Tremains are hysterical), but I've read some trip reports where the Mad Hatter and some of the other characters are great, too.

    I envy you a bit - it's kind of too early for us to be nailing down ADRs. But, my SIL and I are going to do a LITTLE :rolleyes: pre-planning when we're all together for our President's Day weekend getaway (which has been shortened due to snow make-up days now, but oh, well. We got hit again today, but so far just a delay again tomorrow. Did you guys get it?

    Well it is snowing again in the great state of Ohio. I have never seen so much in in two weeks. It started after lunch, once I was at school and by the time my students were to be dismissed at 4 it was a white mess. There were no buses at 4, and at 4:30 I would guess I had over half my class still there. At 5 I still had three students, but they were then gathering the kids in the gym so that once the buses arrived they could quickly get them home. While it took me almost an hour longer than normal I felt lucky because the first two miles were over a half an hour... then I moved okay. We at this point have a delay tomorrow- here is hoping. Plus I have to get Emily to the Dr at 9:30 and if we have to get moving I hope Hannah has preschool, she is on a delay already too!

    Hey there!!! We're getting snow here in NC too!!! We're not supposed to get much but it's nice to see.

    As far as our ADR's go...I'm going to be compiling a list SOON...probably in the next few days. It's just SOOO long before we go.

    Are you still on a delay or is school cancelled?

    This winter has sucked so bad! I think they said in this area we have already had double the snow for the entire season!

    I can't believe all the weather you all are having up there! My family is in Chicago and I think my nephew has only missed school once thus far for weather... It is super cooolllldddd here in ATL today! (for us anyway)

    Hope all these weather problems don't play into your trip in making it all up!

    I'm doing ok... feeling really BIG for me.... can't remember if I told you that they are both boys! Emma keeps hoping that one will turn out to be a girl...
    stay warm and safe!

    Yes another snow day... I am so sick of it. I would like to do that breakfast and that dinner keeps creeping back on the list. We will see

    I never want to see snow again!

    Cancelled... and by the time Emily went to the Dr. at 9:30 it was fine... but probably at 7 it was still ugly. Plus my district seemingly got more snow than some areas.


    Two boys... how sweet! Names decided yet?

    Hi Laura! I feel your frustration with the snow too but in a different way! We keep getting "dustings" and the kids get delayed openings and then by the time they come home the snow is all melted:sad2: They are DYING to have 1 good storm so we could play...I am sure you would gladly send us yours right!:thumbsup2

    Oh man! I was hoping it would just be a delay for you! As my Grandma would say, "I'm so sick of snow I could just spit!". :)

    The outlook here is for 50 plus tomorrow.... melt away snow!

    Just send them here. We are covered in it. To be honest only Hannah has been out in it, and nobody went out the past two days. It has been so cold too!

    My feelings exactly!

    Your ADR choices look great! We're gunning for CM, CP and Le Celier also. Reading your pre-trippie is making me snow day nervous. The possibility of having to add days to the end of the school year never even entered my mind, and our reservation begins the Monday after school gets out.:sad2: We've only had two snow days, so we're ok as of now and my hubby who's a teacher reminded me that the last time we went over, several years ago, the district added time to each day to make up the hours, instead of adding an additional day. I'll cross my fingers for both of us!

    I dread the thought of more snow... one more day and we would have to make some changes... scary!

    Thanks for joining!

    Feel better soon, Laura!

    All of you northern folks are making me appreciate our Tennessee weather more and more. We can go from 0 to 60 in two days, so it can be a little erratic, but I am glad we don't have weeks on end of now and ice. I'd like to get our five built-in snow days every year, but past that we'd have to make anything up. After what I've seen so many of you guys have to live with this winter, I am happy for our dustings of snow and the daily scraping of ice of the car windows.

    UGH! Those are the worst. I hope you start feeling better soon. Can you take anything for it (didn't know if you are breastfeeding or not)?

    We are supposed to warm up to the low 40's today. We'll see. I won't hold my breath! :)
