Time for introductions (for those that are just joining in)!!! Me (Becky)--turning the big 30 on August 1st!! My family and I live in Memphis, TN (well--a suburb really). I am a former Kindergarten teacher and am now a SAHM! I enjoy blogging, bow making, theater, singing, volleyball, shopping, Alabama football (roll tide!!), Facebook (sooo addicted!) and photography. I am very active at my church where I sing solos/duets (with my dh) and sing in our Worship Choir. I am a perfectionist/OCD and was the planner of this trip (100%)! And it was so much fun!! DH (Brent)--turning 36 in August! Brent is an engineer, Star Wars buff, and HUGE fan of the Crimson Tide (he and everyone in his family went to U of A). He coteaches our Sunday School Class, is a deacon at our church, and sings in the Worship Choir. Brent is the smartest person I know but is also down-to-earth and much more laid back than I. We met in 1996 (when he moved to TN from AL) and were married in 1999. He enjoyed every minute of our trip--even with all of the rain! (especially Star Wars Weekend) DD (Ally)--4 1/2--a mini-me!! She looks like me and acts like me (scary!!). She will be starting Kindergarten in August and is already reading!! She loves princesses, taking dance (this is her 3rd year), American Girl dolls, drawing, reading, anything Disney, and singing in her preschool choir. She is quite the performer--this past Christmas she asked her choir director if she would be getting her own microphone for their choir performance!! Hee hee! She also loves to pretend she's Sharpay from HSM or Hannah Montana. She thrives on a schedule and when anything deviates from it--watch out! (she may be more OCD than me! YIKES!! What have I created?!?!) Her favorite princess is Ariel with Cinderella as a close 2nd! DD (Claire)--20 mo.--and my baby!! She is a ball of energy and is my climber--she has no fear! She is also a lot louder than Ally was at this age but is much more cuddly than Ally was. She is precious!! She likes to sing along with us--I think she is going to be a soprano like me! She knows how to make anyone smile--especially if she's getting in trouble--such a stinker!! Many have asked me why we took her on this trip and I say why not?! They say, "Don't you want to wait until she's older?". I'm like--Disney isn't going anywhere--we CAN come back (and believe me--we will)! Claire loved seeing all of the characters on our trip. Her favorites are Mickey & Minnie but she also loved Eeyore and Nemo on our trip! She much prefers the stuffed characters over the "real" ones. Here is one of my favorite pics of our family from our vacation!! Dh and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary on this trip!! This was Ally & Claire's 1st trip!! This was my third trip--my first trip was when I was 3 years old and my 2nd trip was the Spring of 1994. I was a freshman in high school and we had a choir competion at WDW. Dh has been several times but not since 1988. Ok--so what does my title mean?! Well since I used a quote from Ally as my PTR title I thought I'd use another Ally quote for my TR. Most of you know it pretty much rained everyday ALL day the entire week we were at WDW--right?! Well, on Monday of our trip we were in the Magic Kingdom and it was raining (again) and Ally looked over at me (in all seriousness) and said, "This isn't Disneyworld. . .it's Rainworld!" And I about lost it--it just cracked me up! That's Ally for you! Coming up! Day 1 at WDW--our flight, ME, the Poly, Downtown Disney, and a DIS meetup!!
