    Thanks! Have D check out my TR in a couple of posts and I'll have a lot more pictures of all the different sections at AoA - bet he'll get a kick out of the pics I got from the Cars suite section!

    Like your selections for your favorites! MK is my favorite park too! Can't decide on a character since we've been pretty princess-centric until recently. Fav ride for me is Tower of Terror and I'm hoping that next time DD will feel brave enough to try it with me.

    We have been skipping some of our favorites the last few years also while we waited for DS to get to the point where he was ready to ride everything. I am hoping that will be the case this year with the exception of RnR which I know he will not be ready for.

    Our favorites:
    Park DHS
    Restaurant - Counter = Pecos Bills; Table = Big River Grill
    Characters - DH = Grumpy, DS = Buzz or any of the Star Wars Character
    Me = Jiminy Cricket

    Ooh, I will tell D! He will be all about it! Cars is a big family favorite! I also love Tower of Terror. . .much more than I ever thought I would! Good luck on getting DD To ride it!! So much fun!!

    Love all of your favorites, except we have never tried Les Chef's!! I want to, though! Yay for getting the dining ressies!!! Now, come on tours and Fantasmic!!

    I bet your DS will be excited to ride everything this time, too!! I'm still not sure *I'm* ready for RnR! Although, I do ride it!! We also love Big River Grill. . .the Boardwalk atmosphere makes it for me! :thumbsup2

    Our first on the ship night!!

    By this time, we will have gotten into our stateroom! I have ordered baskets for the guys from The Perfect Gift, and I am also going to order the room decorations from DCL.

    I know we’ll have the Muster Station lifeboat drill. Since I don’t know what dining rotation we’ll have, I don’t know where we’ll eat.

    I know we will definitely want to check out the Sail Away party. . .and maybe a Sail Away drink! I’m not a drinker, but I would love the glass! :yay:

    [​IMG]
    *Sail Away Party on the Wonder in 2005! (Flashback pic!)

    I’m hoping we can get the little cheese and crackers platter and then get ready for dinner! :thumbsup2

    After dinner, it’ll be off to the show. I’m pretty sure it’s Villains Tonight! We have D prepped to take his headphones so it won’t seem “too loud”!

    [​IMG]

    *This is D sporting MY headphones (backwards) for the iPad. He has really sensitive ears, so the only way we’ll make it through the show is to bring them with us! :thumbsup:

    After the show (and hopefully a bunch of character pics in the atrium), we’ll explore the ship some more, and then maybe do something “magical” like order cookies and milk from room service! Then it’ll be off to sleep! The next day is Nassau!

    sail away party is so much fun!
    a bit of advice for the muster drill...prepare D for the fact that the life vests are uncomfortable, Megan HATED wearing her's and fussed the entire time, think they were too constricting for her.

    I am definitely looking forward to it as well!! Can't wait!! :banana:

    That's a good idea, Lisa, thanks!! I will definitely do that! I had read somewhere that you no longer have to wear them, you just have to bring them. But I don't know if that's true or not. I will have to get D prepped for the idea that he might have to wear his!

    Update coming below, y'all!! Have a great day, and thanks for reading!!

    I can’t believe we’re under 40 days (at 37 to be exact!). Our 40 day date fell on Saturday, February 10. D & I had been out of school/work on Friday due to the coughing crud. We woke up feeling a little better on Saturday, so we decided to go do some shopping.

    First, though, it was time to change the refrigerator board:

    [​IMG]

    And then we can’t leave without adding the countdown square!! :banana:

    [​IMG]

    We headed out and bought some shirts for Brian for the cruise, as well as a life jacket for D! We also ended up ordering some swimsuits (yikes!) for the trip!

    Tonight’s theme (when I planned all of these out many moons ago) was supposed to be “Be Our Guest”. Well, after shopping, D decided he needed lunch at Chuy’s. So, we decided that would be our countdown meal.

    D, enjoying the BIGGEST CHIP EVER (or so he said):

    [​IMG]

    Once we got home, though, we decided we would go ahead and do our celebration. We were getting stuff ready and my mom called and invited us to their house for dinner. Of course, we weren’t going to say no! :thumbsup2

    We headed off to their house and had an awesome dinner with them!

    D enjoyed playing outside while they grilled:

    [​IMG]

    I guess we ended up with a sort of “Be Our Guest” theme. . .just not the one I was thinking of! Can’t believe we’re in the 30’s!!!

    You will be in the single digits before you know it. Can't wait to hear more about your cruise plans.

    Did you get your cruise docs and luggage tags?! My DBF got his today (he lives in TN) and I have yet to get mine which seems odd especially if they are sent from the state of FL lol

    Valentines Day Update!

    We had such a fun Valentines Day!

    Early that morning (before work), Brian and I exchanged cards and gifts. I got him Wreck-It Ralph which isnt out yet, but I pre-ordered it. He got me this:

    [​IMG]

    The man does know the way to my heart! :lovestruc

    D was SO excited about going to school that day because they had a Valentines Party planned!! We made treat bags for everyone, and of course, CARS Valentines for everyone!

    [​IMG]

    Of course, we had to do a few family pics before school:

    D, ready to go! Mr. Irresistible, indeed!

    [​IMG]

    The one who has my heart!
    [​IMG]

    My two favorite lovelies:
    [​IMG]

    I dropped D and all of his goodies off at school and then headed to work. A good day was had by all!

    During the day, Brian and I planned our dinner! He stopped on the way home and bought all of the goodies.

    Before dinner, we let D open his Valentine gift from us!

    [​IMG]

    He was SO stinkin excited!! Woody has now gone everywhere with us, and even had to be dropped off at Nonnas Friday morningbecause he couldnt go into daycare with D!

    Then Brian and D cooked these awesome things:

    [​IMG]

    D LOVES to be outside with Bri and help cook:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It was a wonderful Valentines Day!! I hope all of you had a day full of love and laughter, too!!
