    Your girls are so precious! l love all the outfits and hairbows! I wish I was that creative to think of those things on our last trip. I usually just lurk but was inspired to join in reading your trip report. Thanks for sharing your memories!:wizard:

    I have been away for a while and I just finished catching up on your report. I love the girl's Minnie dresses, so cute. I am glad that you liked Akershus, we also did. Akershus was one of my favorite parts of the trip and we didn't even get to see the "best" princesses. I am definitely going back again. I have a 13 yr. old daughter and a almost 7 yr. old son, so I am really the one who likes it the most.;)

    It sounds like you all had a great Epcot day even with the horrible rains. That was a lot of water!

    We have never been to Chef Mickey's. It looks like so much fun. I love the "surprise" picture. Good job catching it.

    I hope they're not disappointed either. They've never done a character meal before so thankfully they won't have anything to compare it to! They are staying at my MIL's time share resort (off Disney property) so I think they're trying to save $ by eating there. We LOVED the DDP and will always get it--sooo worth the $!

    Thank you so much!! Welcome and I'm so glad you're joining in!

    Welcome back! Thank you soo much! Yes, we loved Akershus! We will definitely do it again! Chef Mickey's was a lot of fun! You should try it!!

    Chef Mickey's is so fun, isn't it! We went there for breakfast a few years ago, and dinner this spring. I think I liked the dinner even better. Our picture wasn't any good either - what is it with those photographers? I read on someone's TR recently that the Chef Mickey photographer flat out refused to take an additional photo with their camera as well - geesh! I have to say - I am ADORING your daughters' custom disney outfits! I wonder if my girls are getting too old for that at 5 and 8? I'd love to dress them up themed to whatever park or restaurant we're going to that day - I don't know why I never thought of it!

    Yes!! We had so much fun at CM!! Uggh--I don't know but the photographer we had took maybe 2 pics. Thank you! I think you could definitely dress a 5 and 8 year old in cute customs!! Ally is about to turn 5 and she just loves them!!

    Nice update at Chef Mickey's....


    gotta love that monorail :thumbsup2

    sorry you were half and half on CM...that seems to be the case sometimes here on the boards...good and bad and then ok.

    But I'm glad you got at least most of your pic's! and the one of Ally's smile seeing Mickey is just too cute! How fun, that will be a great story to share as she get's older!

    looking forward to your day at MK, hope you meet the fairies

    and I thought of you yesterday when I was at Great America, it rained lightly but for about 2 hours all the rides were shut down...and kept thinking man if we were at Disney even if it were cats and odgs at least we could do something....

    Becky, I read through your PTR because I wanted to find out more about your customs, but when I was reading I noticed you said you write a blog and have it turned into a photobook - what site do you use for this? Is it the blog site that does it, or a photo site? You are the second person I've heard of having a blog turned into a book, and I am totally intrigued by this idea. I'd love to try it. Did the book end up being really really long? Or did you sort of pic and choose which entries to put in? Sorry this is a bit off topic!

    Yes, I do write a blog--I'll PM you the link! I have not gotten my blog turned into a book yet but there is a link on my blog to that site. My good friend used this site to turn her blog into a book--she gave it as gifts at Christmas. She ended up doing it for the year. Her book was really thick! She even printed the everyone's comments of each post--it was AWESOME!!

    I have some exciting news!! (Those of you who are my Facebook friends have already heard) We bought a new vehicle today!! We had a 2004 Honda CRV that we traded in.

    Brent was wanting to get another CRV but I was wanting an Odyssey (never thought I'd want a van but I sooo wanted more room)! He was pretty adamant that we would be getting another CRV. We ended up getting . . .
























    . . . the Odyssey in Dark Cherry Pearl!! Apparantly I'm pretty persuasive!! :lmao:
    [​IMG]

    I honestly never thought we'd come home with an Odyssey. But I'm sooo happy we did!! I'm LOVING it already!! Here's a pic with Ally and the new van!

    Just had to share my excitement with my DIS friends!! :woohoo:

    Congrats on the new car ! It's beautiful , we have a van and I it love ! We really have no other choice though but to have a van with three car seats or a large SUV which are a good bit more money :)

    Oh, I love the new car, Becky!!! That color is just gorgeous!!! We bought a van last year after having a CR-V, and let me just tell you -- you are going to be totally spoiled by all the room in it!

    I have an Odyssey too, and I love it! I never thought my dream car would be a mini-van, but I was desparate to get it when we were looking. You will be so happy with your choice!

    Thank you Shannon!!

    Thanks!! I LOVE all the room a van provides!! And sooo much storage!

    Thank you Jackie!! We had to have the red color b/c we are HUGE BAMA fans!! The last 3 cars we've had have been some sort of red color!

    Thank you Shannon!! We are already enjoying the room it provides!! :lovestruc

    I know what you mean! I never thought I'd waant a van either. But with my 2 girls and everything that comes along with them, we REALLY needed more space!!
