Hi! Glad to hear that everything is back on track (ugh to paperwork mishaps). How exciting that Kenzie will get a Disney birthday :-).

We met with our wish grantor again today :-). She is such a sweet girl. She's going to meet with us at the hospital next week (Ja's in for her MTX lumbar puncture) with a "countdown box" with little activities for the girls to do each day! Considering the fact that she is finishing up her degree these next couple of months, I am amazed that she is putting so much work into our trip.
We also decided that instead of having a going away party we would do a "Welcome Home Princess Tea Party." That way the girls can tell their friends and family about the trip and give out little souvenirs. Things are going to be so hectic leading up to the trip; this seems like a better idea :-)

Victoria - I haven't looked recently, but in the past I've found Disney shirts on clearance at JCP. Maybe ebay? I hope you can find some for Jack.

Jo - So glad you have a wonderful wish granter. The Welcome Home Princess Tea Party is a fantastic idea.

Been to every Goodwill in the at win Cities, well maybe not every but a lot...mitiple times. He just turned eight but is 140 pounds due to the medicatio he has to take for his Cerebal palsy and he can't excercise normal either. Although he loves swimming. Anyhow I checked Walmart, Target and Kmart in the men's section ....so many popular t shirts out with characters, but no Disney or Mickey for men. I did order adorable iron ons from etsy so we will all have matching shirts for one day. But, he is already has so many other things to over come I feel bad. I did look at Disney and found some but or like $30 or $40 bucks. Anyone have any other suggestions of where to look? I have spent hours googling but can't find anything. A few in men's XL but that would be too big. He is only four feet maybe 6 inches? Anyhow any suggestions would be awesome! Thanks so much!
It is beyond amazing to see his pure excitement about going!
Since we are home sick with strep right now we have spent lots of time reading Disney books and watching movies! Yea!
Kenziema glad things are back on trak! Yea!
Has anyone felt nervous before you go because things are always so chaotic? I am so grateful and happy, but jack's health has been so up and down his like I just can't believe this blessing! So excited. And praying we all get, and stay healthy. Sorry such a long post!
Victoria
Here are a few at the Disney Store in sizes small to large...jump on them quickly they are on clearance and the price marked gets an ADDITIONAL 25% deducted using code BONUS.

For example, the first shirt I posted is $5.99-$1.50= $4.49

Hope you are able to find something you and Jack like! There are a lot more than I am posting.

Villains

Mickey

Perry

Goofy

Captain Hook

That makes me smile, I am SO happy you were able to find something. Did you see this one?

Walt Disney World

There is also one in white for ladies, if you wanted to sort of match them.

I hope you post pics of your wonderful finds when they arrive, if you have time.

You are so sweet! I am happy you were able to read the magic of our trip. Yes, my little celebrity loved being famous! She lives and thrives on that, but it definitely isn't for everyone. Had it not been her wish, it isn't something I would have wanted to do, it is a LOT of attention and I am certain that many children would NOT like that at all.

As you read, we had a lot of down time on Lisa's wish trip as well, which was a HUGE blessing to us...that and just rolling with what happens are two of my biggest pieces of advice. Also, DON'T try to make magic happen, I assure you, it will occur naturally, when you least expect it. Just keep a HUGE smile on your face and remember, you are in Disney with your daughter...what could POSSIBLY be better/more magical than that?!?!? Tell DH to watch out...I expect a LOT of happy tears will be shed on this trip by you! You have waited a long time for this trip and it just helps add to the anticipation. will follow you and you will be blessed for NOT forcing the trip, but allowing it to happen in the right time! I had to adjust to that with so many postponements..and the wait was all worth it in the end!

I really AM glad you are back and came to share with us!
