    Sorry to hear Anakin had a seizure last night. :( I hope he goes even longer this time before his next seizure! Glad his cough is doing better, I hope that continues to improve!

    Actually if I was going to take in the stitching on anything pants would be easier than a shirt.

    He slept until 11am this morning and took it easy most of the day.

    I am extremely grateful and thankful that he went over a month seizure free. Hopefully we'll go another month seizure free.

    Did you ever see My Big Fat Greek Wedding? You know the dad with the windex that fixes everything? Well for dh, his windex is duck tape. I have a feeling his costumes will be sporting some duck tape on the inside. Anakin's clone wars shoes fell apart, and dh fixed them with duck tape. Duck tape brand is awesome comes in so many different colors.

    Thank you! He is feeling much better. The cough is better and being tired today was the only after affect he felt from his seizure. Thankfully it was short in duration and low in intensity.

    I will tell him. He is very happy with his progress. I need his willpower!

    What is it about duck tape that men are so wild about it? Scotty and his best friend even use it as bandaids. Silly men!! It does come in some great colors.

    Bandaids? Doesn't that pull like crazy when he takes it off? Ouch!!

    Back in 2004 for the hurricanes we had our windows reinforced with duck tape during Charlie. They were making so much noise I thought for sure they were going to shatter. The windows remained in tact, but the duck tape left a residue on some of them that we never were able to get off, even with goo be gone.

    Back to the TR, I plan to finish up day 11 by tonight.

    I forgot to download this picture. Going to add it to the last update. This is the card that was given to Kit Fisto to sign!

    I have no clue. I think the reason Vinny dos it is because he is working on greasy bikes at work and bandaids just do not stand up to the grease and such.

    That residue it leaves is awful. If goo gone doesn't work that's bad.


    That's so neat!

    Yes, wonder if there is another sticky stuff remover on the market? Thanks!

    Thanks! They sure are friends to him.

    Getting ready to post an update in the next few minutes.

    Light Side, Dark Side or Lunch? Yes…

    While Anakin was visiting with Shaak Ti and Kit Fisto, dh was talking with one of the cm. He suggested we head straight to the Fett area because Jango Fett would be there soon. We followed his advise!
    Neither dh nor I put 2 and 2 together until the cm and people in line did! Here are some Father-Son pictures.

    Next stop was the stores around the animation courtyard. Dh was hoping to find something for Jeremy Bulloch to sign. We didn’t find anything at any of the shops where we stopped. It was soon time for our ADR at Sci-Fi Dine In.

    We stopped by the Fab M&G and asked Dylan when we would be able to catch Jedi Mickey or Darth Goofy. He told us to follow him as he was walking. He was heading back stage and told us that Jonathan would be out with Jedi Mickey and suggested when we should come back. Before we knew it, he had Storm Trooper Donald and Darth Goofy right in front of us! It was a surprise M&G for Anakin! The force is strong with this one!

    I took a bunch of pictures but it was difficult to see what I was snapping because there were tears in my eyes. This was so unexpected. He was extremely excited and happy! Dh and I were very grateful and appreciative.

    The only Disney experience I can liken this to, was back during the Year of a Million Dreams we were awarded Dream Ears because we were at a particular place at a particular time at the Animal Kingdom.

    Anakin thought it was absolutely hysterical that Darth Goofy was wearing his boxers on the outside of his costume. He discretely told Goofy that usually people wear their underware inside their pants, but his name is Goofy so it’s ok to wear them on the outside, which is goofy. Donald and Goofy got a kick out of this.

    We thanked Dylan, Goofy and Donald for such a magical moment!

    Our bellies were hungry. As we passed ABC Commissary we contemplated eating lunch there instead, but the place was packed with people, so we continued on to our ADR at Sci-Fi.

    I was really hoping to try the apple dessert. So dh and I split the picnic burger. Anakin got his usual of nuggets and fries. We decided to surprise him with a glow cup. I asked our server without him hearing if he could get milk with a glow cube. She said that there is a special Sci-Fi cup that can do that with. The other choice was pomegranate lemonade in a different cup. He wanted milk so we went with the special Sci-Fi cup.

    Wow, what a couple of truly magical pixiedust:pixiedust: interactions! :goodvibes I just love how happy Anakin looked to see Goofy and Donald in their Star Wars gear! And that is too funny what he told Goofy. :lmao::lmao: He has a great sense of humor, very quick!

    I still love the pictures where he poses with the mask as a helmet, that was a great idea! Also love his light up cup in Sci-Fi. I really want to try it sometimes, but a lot of people say the food is mediocre. I just think the setting looks fun! :goodvibes:goodvibes

    Well that just about did me in too, Tink. What a sweet, sweet thing for that CM to do and what a special time with Goofy and Donald. Love the underwear story.

    Yes, pictures don't do these magical moments justice. It was very logical humor, lol.

    The mask as a helmet was a very special thing for him. In a short time after this his world was about to be turned upside down concerning his mask. But we will get to that as we the story progresses.

    Kathy, this was just the start of an emotional rollercoaster. This day and the next were some of the happiest days of our lives, ALMOST up there with our wedding and the birth of our children.

    Lisa, I thought it was odd that he asked us to walk with him while he was talking. Had no idea this was his plan.

    I love the theme of Sci-Fi! But I think it's soon time to mix up the movies again. DH has them memorized.

    Meredith, we go there for the atmosphere, not so much the food. The picnic burger is very good. The best part of it is the hotdog, and I don't normally like hotdogs. Their reuben is good too. Their ice cream is soft serve, I prefer hand dipped. The spinach and artichoke dip is good too. Their onion rings are amazing!

    What a truly magical experience for Anakin! I don't blame you for having tears in your eyes. You can tell that Anakin was still laughing in the picture that you snapped when he was walking away from Goofy and Donald. :rotfl:

    Hmm, some suspense. But it's real life suspense so that's not as fun because I don't want anything bad to happen to Anakin. :sad2: I can't wait to hear about these two amazing days, they must have been pretty special to almost match your wedding and children's births! :goodvibes:goodvibes

    I'm a picky eater (like Anakin, used to be that extreme too, but have gotten much better as an adult), but I like hot dogs! :thumbsup2 Sounds like I could get that, granted it's kind of counter service equivalent food, but the atmosphere makes it worth it. Ice cream and my digestive tract don't like each other. :crazy2:

    I :lovestruc:lovestruc the atmosphere at the Garden Grill! Probably because I love that prairie scene way too much. :rotfl2::rotfl2:
