    We've been busy around here. We bought an artificial tree and put it up today. We don't usually do this til after the holidays but I'm trying to get some decorating done before we leave. I also ran to the bank and picked up rolls of quaters for doing laundry while away. Tomorrow is pie baking day. Yum.

    So glad you got some pixie dust!

    Sounds like you did a lot of things. I can't believe you rode TSMM 4x thats great!

    Oh no! But at least she is on medication and will feel better shortly.

    We were allowed with dd's insulin a few yrs ago. I say go for it and if they won't let you just throw it out and get some ice once your past security.

    Oh my! So glad he has the meds and will feel better shortly.

    :cool1::banana::woohoo::dance3::cheer2: 4000th post!

    Sorry to hear about your DMIL and DM I'll send up a prayer. God's hands are best. Have fun and try to relax.

    I really haven't played that game I just want Monday to get here so I can go! Ha Ha!

    Happy Birthday to your DH and yay for the grey stuff! I'm so excited to be eating there in 8 days! Enjoy the rest of your trip!

    Welcome home! I have heard of them mailing things home. If you don't find it I would give them a call. I hope it turns up.

    Thanks! Enjoy decorating your tree!!!

    Quick update: DS was a little better today. Fever went away! guess antibiotic is really helping!
    We were able to go to Downtown Disney for a couple hours which the kids enjoyed. My DS is allergic to eggs and peanuts, so he truly enjoyed his cupcake at Baby Cakes! Went to the main Disney store where he freaked out when he saw all the Mickey stuff! It was really cute! DD enjoyed the train and carousel. We were going to have dinner at T-Rex until the dinosaur when you first walked it came pretty far down and scared the crap out of DD. needless to say, she just wanted to high tail it out of there!! Tomorrow is breakfast at Chef Mickeys! It's a surprise so I can't wait to see how the kids react! Hope they enjoy it and aren't afraid!! Lol Hope you all have a good night!!

    I was underwhelmed by Pirates. The effects were cool and could be a great addition on a ride. The "interactive" part was corny. You spent the whole time watching a show standing in a crowded room. In many ways it reminded me of a preshow ride room without a ride at the end.
    I would not d it again.

    Monday we went to Epcot. It was cold all day Monday. It never managed to get out of the 50's even though the forecast was 74. We did Future World from RD to about 2. We did the Seas, Land, and Imagination pavillions as well as Spaceship Earth. Then we went to downtown Disney for Dinner.

    Yesterday we went to AK. It was a perfect day. We were there from 7:45 to 5. We saw all the shows, rode all the rides, had lunch at Tusker House, looked at the animals, met a couple characters and saw the parade. The only things we skipped were the train and Flights of wonder. It warmed up nicely yesterday and was a beautiful day. The paths felt crowded at times, but the longest we waited for anything all day was 10 minutes.

    My neighbor left a denim shirt on a ride and the park mailed it to her. She thought she'd never see it again and was quite surprised to see it in the mail.


    Glad your DS is feeling better! Hope you have a great breakfast at CM!

    Thanks for the info about the weather...I have been worried about it. I'm pretty sure we will go to the parks in long pants with short sleeved shirts. I am wondering, though, if it will seem warm to us being from cold weather Colorado. Sounds like you are having a good trip!

    Wonderful day at Magic Kingdom. Ate lunch at be our guest, it was beautiful. 4 of us, got steak sandwiches, ham, and pork, french onion soup, potato soup, chocolate cream puff. All was good but steak was just OK. Got brew at Gaston, too sweet for me, but got Belle cup. Saw under the sea, great. Lots of people, but waits were OK if using fast passes. Left at seven, ascooled off and DD and Dm done. Tomorrow we move into royal rooms, and do Fastasmic lunch at MM. Warm during day and cool at night.

    Just wanted to say Have a Great Thanksgiving tomorrow everyone!!!!!! I made all my pies, got the stuffing ready and made a casserole. I can't wait for tomorrow. Family will be here and it will be a wonderful time.

    We had fun decorating. I love they way little ones want to put all of the ornaments on one branch at the bottom of the tree. When I saw my dd3 doing this it reminded me that dd2 had done the same thing. She had about 8on one branch she just kept pushing them back. My mom told me she would let us decorate however and then when we went to bed she would redecorate. Ha Ha!

    So glad your little one is better and the fever is gone. Have a blast at Chef Mickey's. We are eating dinner there on Monday!

    Sounds like you are having a great time. Don't tell my DH about temps being in the 50's. Ha Ha! I have so many different outfits packed its crazy.

    Have a blast!

    Lucky you!:cool1:

    12 days of vacation sounds wonderful!

    Have fun!

    Sounds like a great day!

    Quick catch up from our trip since we've been busy!

    Sorry to hear so many have had sick kiddos. I know that is never part of the plan.

    Our first day at MK was pretty awesome. DD2 got done up at BBB as Belle and was completely adorable. After that we had lunch at BOG, which was awesome. Then we did Enchanted Tales with Belle and I was one of the knights, DD1 was the Beast and DD2 was silverware. DD2 stole the show when she got to meet Belle. Not a dry eye in the house during that it was so cute.

    We have a lot more to do since we pretty much only did Fantasyland while we were there. Going back tomorrow for more.

    Tuesday we did DHS. DD1 got to ride ToT with me twice and she loved it. We did TSM, met P & F and took a gazillion pictures of the Osborne lights.

    Today was AK. Took it slow and spent most of the day in Dinoland but DD1 did get to ride Everest twice with me.

    We had a mishap at DHS. I got to the car to leave and my key fob to start my car had fallen off of my keyring! I panicked but thankfully someone had turned it into Guest Services and I was able to get back to the resort without a problem. Scary stuff though.

    All in all it's a good time. The kids are fighting over the stroller of all things. DD1 (7) wants to ride in it and DD2 (4) only wants to ride in it so DD1 doesn't. Other than that its going well.

    Off to O'Hana breakfast then MK again!
