    Thanks Christian!

    I will say that GKTW is an amazing place. We know first hand because we stayed there 2 weeks ago while we were on Juliana's Make-A-Wish trip. The place is so magical and there are over 1500 volunteer hours there DAILY.

    If anyone wanted to donate to GKTW a 'different' way read this post Maroo made on the Wish Trippers thread.... taken from HERE





    Did you figure it out yet Don? If not I'll try to help you out.

    The suitcases are packed. The van is almost packed. The house has been cleaned. The boarding passes printed out. Just one more sleep til our family's own CA adventure for Christmas. We'll be staying in 5 different cities, seeing about 29 different relatives on both sides of the family, ranging in age from 4 to 94... two of which have various forms of cancer, and one of which is suffering from alzheimers - but even though she won't recognize me, she's still my grandma, the last living grandparent I have. While there we'll of course be spending time with all of our (yours and mine) favorite mouse, duck and goof, and enjoying the terrific DVC rooms at the Grand Californian. And yes, sometime in the new year I'll put out a TR about that visit as well.

    I will be on and off the boards while away, mostly via my phone, but I will try to get my current Daddy-Daughter TR (link below) updated at least once or twice while on this trip, as I'm definitely planning on writing one or two installments on the plane headed west. At this point I'm not sure if I'll have time in the morning before heading out to stop by and say it, and cannot guarantee that I'll have time later in the week, though of course I'll try, but I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year a little early.

    Congrats to oXar, and prayers for AJ. And a little CRUD in advance, since I know I'll miss a bunch of stuff along the way for the duration of the year.

    Cheers guys! :)

    Home at last!!!! my bed has been calling my name. What a great trip! Loved Port Orleans Riverside. Only bad point was the freezing Beverly weather! Got to meet Jason and his family. Got the honor of riding Everest with his son for his first time, wasn't sure if it was Jason or the boy crying...or was it myself? Not sure.

    Well Mark, the crying certainly was coming from our seat, maybe the one behind us. HAHA! Thanks for the fastpasses, btw. Kory absolutely loved it, and rode it three more time that day. Just wish I could have gotten Kaylee on it. It was certainly nice to meet you and your family. Glad you had a great time at POR.

    To all the rest of the Dads, I have started on my trip report. It is in its' infant stages, but will try to not drag it out forever. Is it wrong, that I am trying to figure out a way to back in less than a year?

    The major issue at hand is also the biggest reason to go again. My cousin is getting married in Atlanta next October, and we are planning on driving down for the wedding. We will already be 3/4's of the way to Orlando, so why not do it, if onlyfor a couple days. My DWs' exact words were "I hate you. LOL" when I mentioned it.

    My DW has the iPhone 4 with ATT - she loves it. Of course we're turning into a Mac family. Already have the Macbook Pro and an iMac in the near future...so we're kinda biased.

    I have the HTC EVO with Sprint (paid by my employer) and I love it just as much as my wife's iPhone.

    I've previously had two windows phones and after going Android...I'm not sure if I'd ever go back...although the new windows phones do look intriguing.

    That stinks Aaron. But very glad you found out this way (& not after a rupture!). Hate to bring up a worse thought, but if you or your brothers test positive, remember that have your kids screened, too! These things have a small yearly chance of rupture, but it can happen in kids, too. Took care of 2 post-rupture just this month!

    Thanks. Most of my friends have recommended Iphone and I have played with them and they look great. I had a Palm Trea Smart phone and loved it (had a keyboard on the phone). But we just got 3G last month and I disconnected the data plan and just used the Hotsync with my computer. It is old and sputtering, so it is time to upgrade. The problem is that all my computers are PCs. I have a desktop, laptop, and netbook, and don't want to start upgrading to MAC now. I don't know anyone who has the Windows phone. I may just have to go to the store and play with it and see if I like it.

    Splash Moutian pic finally. Wife and I snuck these on our carry-on backpacks so the kids and friends didnt know. We sat in the back so no one could see us until the picture. The ladies at the picture place laughed so hard they gave it to us for free in exchange to use it as the display photo.

    That is great!!!! I have been laughing for 2 minutes straight. My wife wanted to know what was so funny, so I showed her and now she is hysterical.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Welcome back! I have added the TR to the first page :thumbsup2

    :rotfl2: I think our wives may be related! My DW came home from shopping the other day and she scored a very nice Tink hoodie. She was sooo excited when she found it... then she admitted to me that when she first found it she had two reactions... love at first sight... and mad at me for getting her into Disney! :lmao:

    :rotfl: That is AWESOME! Getting those floaties on must have been a real task, though! Can't believe you got something for FREE! At Disney! :worship:

    Ummm... you confused me, Ron... You have to start the TR first, then add the link to your sig. Head over to the TR forum and start one there (http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18). Then PM me and I'll walk you through getting the link in your sig. :thumbsup2
