    hope you can relax & enjoy your time away - I know it is hard if you are worried but hey you will have your cell phone with you so they can get ahold of you if they really need you.

    Nan, I hate those test (I hate all test but those are really bad)
    Christy - I can't wait to see pics of that tree (How do you do the top of the tree??)

    Everyone else - good luck on getting things done

    my list
    call Mom
    inkscape - need to finish "Winter Fun" since I decided to use one of them on that new challange page - need to post the new pic for that
    once over the house before Sister comes over - maybe M&D coming too

    It's the weekend - I'm fairly free since DH is working today. They went back on 12 hour shifts (really 14 but only gets paid for 12!) on Tuesday which should change next week. I will be so glad when these power uprates at the plant are done!!! Unless he takes vacation time, we do absolutely nothing together for DH only gets Sunday off and he parks himself on the couch for the day cause he's too tired to do anything - can't blame him for that! Other than the last two weeks of September and all of October, he has been working 6 days a week, 10-14 hours a day, since January 30! He did get four days off for Thanksgiving but will be working Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years Eve and New Years Day - geez, I saw him more when he was still in the Navy, hahaha! Okay - I'm done ranting!

    Sooooo, lots of scrap time for me this weekend, will finish up our Christmas cards and bake some cookies for DH and his troops..

    Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    No! Drats!! We just guessed on our park days last night off wdweasy's recommends as best we could. My 180 mark crept up on me. We are going to Chef Mickey's for breakfast that morning!!! We didn't go there our last trip and the kids were so disappointed, something fun about swinging your napkin in the air that is so exciting :rotfl:? They really like Chef Mickey's. We don't have park hopper this trip or we would swing by MK since it is right next to MK. I do really want to meet up briefly if possible if we are ever in the same place.

    Our plans as of now: Arrive early afternoon after the cruise on the 6th. Check in, swim at the resort (A of A) while we wait on our room. Then Thursday evening we are heading to MK (tradition to start every evening at MK to do the night time parade and fireworks) and we have BOG reservations that night at 4:45. The 7th we have breakfast at Chef Mickeys at 9:10 and then we plan on going to Animal Kingdom that day. That evening we talked about doing the Chip and Dale camp fire sing-a-long/outdoor movie at Fort Wilderness at about 7:00 because we have never done that before. Since it is free and sounds fun, we thought we might try it. The 8th I believe you are leaving. We have 8:05 breakfast reservations at CRT for the first time. Then we are spending the day at MK. Any chance we are overlapping you anywhere with our tenative plan? We might be able to switch things up a little :) We are leaving on the evening of the 11th.

    We are staying at All Star Movies
    Thursday we don't have plans for yet - maybe AK moring then Epcot night - depends on what Sister's boys want to do - which park they want to revisit - wondering if I could talk DH into visiting your hotel - could be fun photo shoot ;)
    Friday is our last day so I figured a MK all day
    Saturday we are loading the car & leaving from the hotel

    Reddy all I'll tell you now is we cheat and I have a really tall husband. Although Levi is now taller we may transfer the star topping to him...... I will post pics but let me tell you I have a VERY hard time getting the whole tree in the picture.

    Just got in. As usual everyone loved the boys waiting on them, some people even left them a tip :rotfl2: I'm tired and my foot is killing me. Damn plater faciatis (sp) is acting up again.

    boys are at moms and so I'm going to just relax for a few then do some laundry.

    dinner is corn chowder and sandwiches left from lunch.

    OH! Let me know! If you come during the afternoon, we will be there for sure. The kids are dying to swim in the "big blue pool" to hear the underwater music. Well at least they talk about that pool a lot thanks to the disney channel, they don't know we are going!! We could exchange cell numbers too if it looks like it will work. You could even swim. Of course, we have a long time to plan this :rotfl:

    I need to get with my sister & figure out which parks when - she is trying to leave all planning up to me

    OK about to post new blog entry if anyone needs that file of Mickey & Minnie walking in the cold (plus a few others)
