    The final picture of Victoria's pillowcase...

    The lighting isn't the best - as she took it in the darkest corner of her bedroom - not to mention, she just pulled the crumpled mess out of her suitcase and photographed it with out ironing...

    Maybe she was afraid to iron it and mess up the signatures.......ok trying to give her a break. It is such a cute idea!

    The Goofy hat brings back fond memories. Our youngest daughter had to wear her Goofy hat every day of our trip when she was four years old. It was so cute.

    I love the pillow case. The signatures turned out really well, especially considering that some of those characters can hardly see out of their costumes or have only three fingers. ;)

    Such fabulous now and then photos! :goodvibes She got SO MANY autographs on that pillowcase!!! :scared1: :cool1: I had considered doing a pillow case for the cruise, but I amafraid there won't be enough characters on board to fill the case completely. I think I have settled on doing a photo mat instead. :confused3 We shall see. :hourglass With it being a year way, I could change my mind a hundred times. :rotfl:

    I think I'm going to have to make some pillowcases for some special kids to take on their next trip to WDW!.

    V's turned out really great. I like the idea of the autograph pillowcase more than an autograph book that might just sit on a shelf and gather dust.

    So sad this TR is over:worried:, but I know that a new PTR will be starting soon!:banana:

    I'm back!! All caught up just in time for you to start the new PTR.

    So glad you guys enjoyed BOG even though your server was not the best. That's definitely not the norm, I've had two wonderful servers there.

    Yikes on the PP+ card going missing. Glad you got that worked out. I was definitely paranoid all trip about losing mine even though I did take a picture of the number right away.

    Love all of the stocking you made for your family!

    Such cute Then and Now pictures! Jim and I did get a few that were similar to our Honeymoon pictures.

    D-sorry I haven't been posting. The budget review with the president was yesterday. So glad that is over. Now just the stress of getting all the analysis done for the Board meeting 11/15. I think I told you one of the VPs quit. Things will continue to be stressful here for while. BUT...I decided I need a new attitude about this. I really don't want a new job and seriously don't want to give up my 6 weeks of vacation. I have decided to accept the fact that I do want to stay here but I can't change the way things are here now. I can just adjust my attitude toward it all. SO...it is just a job! I give it 100% while I'm here but can't stress about it outside of my working hours. I am striving to leave on time as staying late wasn't improving my attitude or releiving any stress. I just started this new attitude last week but it's been working so far. I even sewed a few things after work last week-a couple of PJ pants for a coworker's son who is having surgery next week, a pair of Christmas PJs for Emma (too short so I have to add to them-UGH-don't know how I measured them wrong) and a couple of Christmas pillowcases.

    It was so wonderful spending time with you at MK on your last full day! I know my kids can be quiet and reserved but they LOVED you & the girls!!!! I have to get that video on a DVD and send it to you. I took it sideways. Joe was able to turn it around in iMovie on my Mac but I can't figure out how to upload it from there to photobucket. I do have a few cute photos I should upload though.

    I really LOVED the Pinocchio bag!!! Stunning as usual! Loved the lining fabric-that would be cool if you ever did a Carousel of Progress bag.

    Your BFF did a great job on your turkey hat! How wonderful that V will do the turkey trot with you and how awesome that you are seeing such great results from all your hard work-working out and eating better. Way to go!:woohoo:

    Sorry to hear you got a less than steller server at BOG. Ours was bad too. I'm glad to have tried it but it won't be on my must go list. I'd like to try lunch there someday but Emma won't eat anything there-except dessert. And what a fiasco with your PP+ card. I had a photographer give my card to someone else before-just a regular one but still scary to think you've lost your photos-thankfully I was able to recover them all. I'm still on the fence about PP for December. Just when I thought I had talked myself out of it you post your now & then photos (LOVE all of them!). I do love all the PP borders! I think I might have to order it. Just regular as this trip is more about Christmas than rides and we aren't doing any meals with photos.

    Love your stockings! Such great fabrics!

    LOVE V's pillowcase!!!!! What a lot of work and waiting to collect all those autographs. When I bought the Disney Christmas fabric for the pillow cases I just made I was thinking I would use the Disney fabric for the back and use white for the front for Emma to use for autographs but she wasn't interested in that. I have to say I didn't push her because I didn't want to commit a ton of time to doing autographs-we have too much else to see.

    I've been stressing a bit about this whole fast pass plus thing for our December trip. What a nightmare it has been. I got Terry & I linked but she could only see me not Emma & I could see only her and not Halley. Then she tried to link their APs to her account but both passes got assigned to her. Then she just did a weekend trip to WDW and Halley's pass wouldn't work to get into the park.:scared1: They let her in when Terry showed her ID. She waiting to get it fixed at Guest Relations but they couldn't fix it so she spent an hour on the phone with IT when she got home and thinks it is fixed now. I can now see all 4 of us on my account and can pick all 4 of us for fast pass+ but when I go to finalize it it says Halley & Emma have exceeded thier limit.:furious: They both only 3 from the prior day.:badpc: Now I've got to try to call IT and see if they can fix that. Thankfully I had already decided this December trip is about seeing all the Christmas stuff and not about doing all the rides so I'm trying not to get too stressed about it but it so frustrating with how poorly this is being implemented. Hopefully it will be all straightened out before our next family trip.

    WOW!!!!! LOVE that photo!!!! Hope to see more! Now you need one of the 4 of you! Oh wait - the 5 of you - can't forget Max.

    Wow. Victoria got so many autographs. I feel like we didn't see so many characters this trip. Boo! My kids weren't into them. Luckily I got my character fix in Jan with my niece and nephew. I think we saw every princess and lots of characters.

    Love this set of now and thens. I really like the ones in AK. :)

    Wow Victoria got a lot of autographs. That gives me an idea for my nephew.the
    I'm not too fond of many of Vera's newer styles. It was really hard to find something for my sister. She always wants a Vera bag for cat sitting. I have made her a few bags, too but she loves Vera better.
    My daughter has the Disney crossbody it black. She got it the day Disney released the line. We went to DTD after breakfast and walked right in and bought it. She was using it on Sunday when we were at the outlet store. The gorls that work there loved it.
    Now I'll have to go over and start your pretrip report.
