This trip report was in dire need of a fresh start,so Ta Dah...here it is! If you are interested in humble beginnings, click this link for back story on the hooligans formerly known as the Grand Gatherers. You may be asking yourself who or what Jazzerlycious is. It is, in fact, both a who and a what. The who is the fantastic four that makes up JAZZERLY: Jackson, Izzi, Erica and Lily. The what is a state of mind...the art of being Jazzerlycious, baby! We are 13 days away from our Jazzerlycious birthday extravaganza at Disney World. This is fantabulously superiffic on two counts: 1) Its DISNEY WORLD!! and more importantly 2) I get to see Erica and Jackson!!!! Erica and Jackson are my niece and nephew, aged almost 13 and 11 respectively. We are celebrating Erica's 13th at WDW. They are a magical and mishcievious, rambunctious and rascally, sassy and smart dynamic duo; and if you ask Aunt Lauri (me) practically perfect! I live in Florida. They live in Virginia. I miss them every day, and I can't wait to hug 'em and squeeze 'em and spoil 'em rotten for a whole week. At Disney World!! Their mother (my little sister) has threatened to kick my butt if I go overboard, but I'm not scared. I'm the big sister, and I can take her. Izzi and Lily are my cousin's daughters. They live in Florida, and I get to see them almost every day. Lucky me! Izzi is 13, and Lily is 9 going on 22. The bond shared by the fantastic four is way cool, especially when you consider how far apart they live from each other and that they only get together three or four times a year. Also along for this joyride is a gaggle of goofy grownups: Me (Aunt Lauri, Laura, etc.) My mom (Mom, Nanny, etc.) Lisa (my sis) Troy (my BIL) Dani (my cousin, Izzi and Lily's mom) There may also be a special surprise guest appearance along the way...but don't tell my mom! I've been planning this trip for seven months. POR, ADRs, MNSSHP, CRT, MK, DS, AK, RnR, ToT, BTMRR. It's like swimming in alphabet soup! I ordered pins for trading from Ebay and found Erica a Jack Skellington lanyard medal, too. We made JAZZERLY Magical Cast Member Award stickers to give to CMs who are especially profient at spreading pixie dust. Oh yeah, Aunt Lauri ROCKS! I hope. The thing about being the All Powerful Planning Diva (APPD) is that if everything goes great, I get all the glory. The downside, of course, is that if it all goes south, I get all the blame. Doncha just love a cliffhanger?
