    Hey Becky! I love your concert pics - it looks like a wonderful night! Those Gaither harmonies are fabulous, aren't they? Love Marshall Hall - was he still with them? :love:

    The birthday party looks great! I ALMOST bought that castle for my girls for Christmas when I went down in December on a girls trip! Debated and debated.....finally decided not to get it! Now, I kinda wish I had! :rolleyes:

    Oh my - that bag is beautiful! I only have one VB bag and I love it - but I might have to look into the hipster style - very pretty!

    Good morning Kristen!! Yes, the black, pink, and red crocs came from crocs.com. I LOVE them!! I've been wearing them everyday since I got them last week. Thanks for the heads up on the Jibbitz!! We'll keep an eye out for Minnie! :)

    Off to take the girls to the mall to get their picture taken with the Easter bunny!!

    Sara--yes, their harmonies are INCREDIBLE!! I have never seen so much talent on one stage before!! Unfortunately Marshall is no longer in the group (Ally was so sad because one of her favorite songs is the song Marshall always sang When I Cry). Guy Penrod is also no longer in the group. But Mark Lowry, Michael English, and David Phelps are all back in the group now and all I can say is WOW!!

    I was talking to the grandparents who bought the castle and they said that the castle was 35% off when they were down there and only $10 to ship. Wonder if Brent will let me get one for the girls?!

    Thank you!! I LOVE my new bag and just ADORE pink so that bag was the perfect choice.

    Awesome updates! So cool that Ally knows all the word to those songs! :thumbsup2

    I LOVE the new bag! I just bought my first VB hipster for my upcoming trip. I can't wait to use it in the parks!

    The art gallery is too cute! She is very talented! ;)

    Here's a little dance for being paid in full...doesn't that feel good??

    Wow, you are right our dates are the same but for seperate coasts.:goodvibes Your dates were our original but then we added one more day to the end. Are you nervous about the Star Wars crowd?

    I think relaxing at your resort the first day is a perfect idea. Keeps you rested up to start your first day full of energy.:goodvibes

    Wow! Looks like you have been having lots of fun! Love your VB bag. I'm a VB fan too. I carry the backpacks though. Keeps both hands free for wrangling wiggly little girls...lol.

    What a great time you have been having!!!

    Don't you love the hipster style? I was leaning towards that same pattern, but then this week Vera Bradley released a new pattern called Bali Gold -- I think I am in love with it! ;)

    Love the Vera hipster. I have two, but I sure do love that new pattern! So cute.

    As for the Castle.... we have one and the girls do love to play with it.

    Subscribing. :surfweb:

    Your PTR was in the #1 slot on the DIS front page. I saw you had the same travel dates as mine, so I clicked and read away. :goodvibes

    Your plans and ADR's look great! :thumbsup2 My upcoming trip is a "boys only" trip with my DS4, but I'm looking forward to the day when I can take my DD1 (just turned 1 last Saturday) to the BBB in the castle like you're doing.

    I noticed that you said your DH was a big Star Wars fan, so in case you didn't know, Star Wars Weekends starts on May 22 at DHS.

    Great updates! I love vera bradley. I was torn with my maternity bag between that and the Kate Spade- but I ended up with the Kate Spade. Mother's day is coming up though!! ;)
    I LOVE the princess party and the castle is amazing.

    The drawings are so cute- thanks for sharing them!!!

    HI Becky,
    Love your new bag. I have a few VB too. So do you think the hipster is roomy enough to carry most of your stuff for the park? I have a Baggalini and it fits everything but is not that comfortable for some reason. Love the girls all dressed up at the party, very cute! I agree on your arrival day I would definitely make it a relaxing resort day. I always do that especially when we stay at Poly :cloud9:.

    Yesterday was the start of our 30 day countdown!! Whoo hoo!! :cool1: We made a Mickey countdown chain. Each day we will remove a link in the chain until we make it up to Mickey's head (the day we leave for WDW)!!
    [​IMG]

    Ally wrote all of the numbers (1-30) on the links
    [​IMG]

    I also used this time to teach Ally about patterns. I showed her how we were making a color pattern in our chain (red, yellow, black, red, yellow, black, etc.). As I added the links, she was able to tell me what color came next in our pattern.
    [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the link to my family blog on here?! I have lots of pics, etc. of what we've been doing the past few weeks. PM me if you want the link!! I just haven't had the time to post it here and there. :)
