    I wasn't supposed to get my order from crocs.com until Friday so I was pleasantly surprised when it came today!! Here are my crocs:
    [​IMG]

    And crocs for the girls (These will match 2 Minnie customs I'm having made for the girls--I'm going to put them in their Easter basket):
    [​IMG]

    I also ordered Ally some Jibbitz (I'm going to put them inside plastic eggs for her Easter basket--the fairy ones light up--they are fairly large--notice the size difference between the fairies & Minnie):
    [​IMG]

    A pic of Minnie in the croc (The Disney MJ's feature minnie holes small enough to secure jibbitz™ brand charms):
    [​IMG]

    And I'm throwing in a picture of Ally that I took before church tonight. She's wearing her Ariel shirt and clippie (Ariel is her FAVORITE princess!!):
    [​IMG]
    I straightened Ally's hair today--I do it every so often when she asks. She has such pretty curly hair but sometimes she wants to be like Mommy!

    It took me exactly a week to get mine. I ordered last Wed. and received them yesterday. Maybe check your order status by logging into crocs.com--they may have forgotten to send a shipping e-mail.

    Hi- I was checking out your pre trip report- and your plans look great! Your daughters are so adorable! I have two boys. They are 3 1/2 years apart and the youngest will be 20 months while we are in Disney! (close to the ages of your girls!)

    Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. We have been sooo busy here!! Let me share with you what we've been up to. This weekend my parents came to visit.

    Ally & my mom

    Brent and I took Ally to the Gaither Vocal Band/Signature Sound concert in Southaven, MS Friday night (my parents kept Claire for us). So we drove down to MS (about an hour drive), ate dinner, and headed over to the concert around 6:00 p.m. We decided to walk around and check out the booths before the concert started. We were so excited to run into 3 of the 4 members of Signature Sound (Tim, Doug, & Ryan--not sure where Ernie was)!! Ally just had to get her picture taken with them!
    [​IMG]

    They were so very nice and gave Ally a special light with their picture on it. (Ally used it throughout the concert, holding her light in the air and waving it to the music!!)

    The concert started at 7:00 p.m. and lasted until 11:00 p.m.!!

    Signature Sound (Ally just LOVES this group--she calls them the "singing boys")

    The Gaither Vocal Band

    There was a 15 minute intermission around 9:30 p.m. During that time Ally had 2 people come up to her and tell her how much they'd enjoyed watching her sing & dance. They also commented how amazed they were that she knew almost every word to every song!
    When the concert started back, they had everyone back on stage for a singin'!
    [​IMG]

    The concert was just absolutely fabulous!! What a wonderful night of worship! It was really late so we headed home and Ally fell asleep before we even left the parking lot. We ended up getting home around 12:15 a.m.

    Coming up--a princess party!!

    Saturday the girls were invited to the birthday party of their friend Taylor (her mom was our "fairy godmother" in my previous posts--they were in WDW over Spring Break). The party was in our church gym--it was a princess party!! All of the girls brought princess dresses to wear over their clothes. Both of my girls took their Cinderella dresses to wear.

    I didn't realize how BIG the castle actually was!!

    After the birthday party we met my parents at the mall. I chose a new bag for our Disney trip!! I have read so many great things about the Vera Bradley hipsters that I had to check them out. I just LOVE Vera Bradley bags--my current purse is VB and Claire's diaper bag was a VB, etc. I wanted a different pattern from what I had already (Mod Floral Pink). I finally decided on one of the new patterns--Cupcake Pink! Check it out!! I LOVE my new bag!

    Oh and I think we finally decided on what to do on arrival and departure day. We have decided to relax and enjoy our resort on arrival day. On departure day we're going to head back to Hollywood Studios because Brent is a HUGE Star Wars fan. And Star Wars Weekend just happens to begin the day before we leave!! Thanks again for sharing all of your opinions and suggestions!!

    Morning Becky!
    Great updates!!!!:banana: I'm not sure where to start!! Love the new crocs, adorable!! Did you get those through Crocs.com, I can't remember? They are too cute. I have the just plain brown Croc MJ's and LOVE them, I wore them on our 1st family trip to Disney, they needed no breaking in and I wore them all week long, without any issues, they were heavenly!!:lovestruc Just a word of caution though with the girls jibbitz....we bought our boys some Mickey crocs before out December vacation and thought while we were in DW, we would let them pick up some jibbitz as a little souvie, well, they did and each got like 3 of them....well, my middle son lost all of them! They come out VERY easily from the Mickey holes...they fit nicely but for whatever reason he kept losing them....and I wont even get into the amount of time we spent looking for them!!!:eek: I even asked a CM before buying them if they worked in Mickey crocs and she said yes, but I would never do it again....sorry to be the bearer of bad news, the big ones are probably perfect but watch your Minnie one for sure!!!!;)

    Absolutely LOVE your pink cupcake VB bag!!!!!!!!!:lovestruc I've seen the green one and love that (my fav color is green!) but never saw the pink one, adorable!!!!!!!!!!!!:cloud9:

    Looking forward to hearing more!! Have a nice day!!!!

    ps- Ally's pictures are SO cute!! She's a nice little artist!!!! Too cute!! :)
