We're taking ours! And I can't wait - it's 25 here with freezing rain. The roads are a MESS! It took us a bit longer to get to work this morning, but we left earlier, too. If it's 60 - we'll be in that new CBR pool!

I hate needles, so really feel for your little guy. I know it's hard not to worry, but know we're all here for you.

My DD12 has Crohn's Disease in which she has to have infusions at a large hospital in Madison, WI. We go to a pediatric floor, so you would think the nurses are trained in IV placement...well my daughter is a Hard stick everytime and the nurses just don't believe me. If they don't get what they need on the 1st stick, request an (I might spell this wrong)Anastegiolist...you have the right to ask. My DD also has to hold my hand because I "take the hurt away"...whatever the results are...in the end it will be fine

Wait times for the big attractions were about an hour but with FP its ok. I am hoping tomorrow will be a little quieter at MK. We have an early ressie in Crystal Palace at 8am and then plan to be first in line for dumbo

We are so happy at the Animal kingdom Villas. We have a full kitchen, master bedroom with a king bed, and a HUGE bathroom. I think it is bigger than my daughters bedroom at home.

Well..I just wanted to check in. I am almost jealous of you guys who haven't left yet. My husband is already asking when we can come back
Great to hear a Snowbird's trip is going well and the weather is so nice! Have fun..tell Mickey I'll be there soon!

I hope everything goes smoothly and the results aren't anything too serious.

We are up to our (Mickey) ears in t-shirts! We've only got 3 more to finish and I love how they are turning out! The kids have no idea we're making them, and instead of giving them to them before we go, I'm going to pack them and surprise them each morning with a new t-shirt! Isn't that FUN? I only made 2 for the adults, but I've got 5 for the kids. Plus the Disney Store t-shirt I bought, that covers almost every day. I think they're gonna love the shirts and seeing their names on some of them.

Dingbat me, I made too many iron-ons!

I leave for Disney in just 3 days!!!!!! Gah! I can't believe it!

peanut...thanks for the live update! How FUN to hear from someone who is there!

Thanks for the early morning laugh!

I'm starting my tshirts today...hopefully the experience won't look like a scene from I Love Lucy!

You're definitely in my prayers. The waiting is the worst. How soon do you think there will be results?

See, now...there's a reason the shirts were created over the course of 2 nights while the little people in this house slept. I tell myself it's because I wanted to surprise the kids, but really it's because I know the chaos that ensues when my kids are awake during one of my creative endeavors!

Just 2 more days. But we head to my sister's house tomorrow evening. She lives closer to the airport. So, I've got to finish packing today. And take down the Christmas tree. And go to a ladies' meeting at the church. And visit my Na-na and help her burn her trash. And get to Walmart one more time. **.

Did I mention that I neglected to notice one piece of pertinent information when booking our flight out of Allentown, PA? Yeah...we are taking a BUS from Allentown to Newark!!!!!! I read "bus service" and assumed they meant air taxi. I was talking to my sister yesterday and she mentioned that when she flew Allentown/Newark/Orlando, she got put on a bus and never noticed it was written on her itinerary. As soon as she said that she got put on a bus back to Allentown a lightbulb went on in my head.

WE'RE RIDING A BUS FROM ALLENTOWN TO NEWARK AND BACK!

The real kicker? On the way back we have a 3 hour layover in Newark! 3 hours to sit in Newark and wait for a BUS! In 3 hours we could be not just to Allentown, but actually home in our town!

Go ahead. Laugh at me.

I was nervous to tell my mom. We had a missions meeting at church last night, so I told her in front of the group. Oh, boy, did we all laugh hysterically! That way Mom couldn't flip out to badly at the idea of being on a bus for 1 1/2 hours with 4 kids to Newark.

Apparently I did not get enough of this action when booking our flight. Need me some more coffee!

Back to the swimming dilemma:

I would suggest to any one who likes to (or children like to) swim to bring their suits. Remember, the parks close earlier and some evenings the temperature remains in the 70's (going by our last two January trips). It's a perfect time to hit the pool, and typically they're not too crowded. No huge loss if you end up not swimming (as your suit doesn’t take up much room in your bag) but at least you had your suit. Coming from Upstate New York (where it was -3 before the wind chill this morning) it sure is fun to be able to swim outside in January!

Ok, Hello everyone!

Well we made an executive decision to drive down to Milwaukee tomorrow night. They are supposed to get some snow over night, and frankly, I just want to be down there so we don't have to deal with the driving and stuff.

Alright, I need to grab some dinner and finish up my last minute stuff!
We would never ditch you!!!


Have a safe and magical trip!!

momto2princecharmings Keep your chin up hope for the best. Does Keton have a special Lovie? If so take it with you or even better maybe he can go to the store & get a new stuffed animal or something for being such a "big boy". That's what I do with my little guy when they need to do blood work. Baby goes with us plus we get a new toy.


Well I have the day off so its off to run errands & take the dog to the vet. He has a bad rash on his back & wont stop chewing & scratching.

Wasn't there something listed that you can use your $200 gift card for anything at the parks? I hope so cause I plan on using it for paying for our food.

I need to learn to multi-task like that!

Speaking of Disney dreams...Tammy, I just love that Disney-dreaming smiley in your signature! Where did you find that?

I got the boys the "Guide to the Magic for Kids" for Christmas. It's neat! As I recall, it arrived more quickly than I expected.

Big hugs and best wishes to Keaton...and you too! Keep us posted on how he's doing.

It sounds like I missed out on a lot of t-shirt discussion toward the end of Part IV...I guess I'll have to go back and read up! Or at least skim through and look at the pictures. But I really shouldn't add another project to my to-do list...

Overthemoon, crzyred, and everyone else leaving in the next few days...have a safe and magical trip! We can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!
