Thanks to some bad influences here on DIS, my sewing machine has been rescued from the basement (My MIL owned a fabric store and was attempting to teach me how to quilt. I haven't really touched the machine since she died 5 years ago). I was thinking of making a couple small stroller bags that could somehow attach towards the front of the double stroller, so each girl could have her own access to things like snacks and stickers. Any ideas of how I could make something like that?

Jo - That's a great idea. The Disboutiquers have a thread, and they're very helpful. http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2975559

But we got rescheduled for the end of May, so she's turning 4 in WDW. Check out our PTR, I'll try to keep it updated.
Sorry to hear she was in the hospital. How wonderful she gets to celebrate her birthday at Disney World though!

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 :-)
What a fun idea to have a Welcome Home Princess tea party! I LOVE the idea!!

So getting a little nervous. We leave in 9 days and have our preliminary reservations, but haven't gotten our final paperwork. Still waiting on boarding passes, luggage tags, and the check! Our wish granters wanted to set up a little pizza party next Tuesday night and then we have his going away party next Friday night after we check into the hotel. Not sure if they will wait until then?? Oh well, we will just go with it! Trying to get more packing done and just mainly need to add last minute things. My grandma was admitted back into the hospital today, so I hope she gets out before we leave. Hope everyone has a great week, we are finally getting some spring weather!!

If you're seeing the grantors twice before you go, I imagine you're fine. I understand it being nerve wracking though!
I hope your grandma is okay and gets out of the hospital quickly :-)
So close! Exciting!

Jmerch, yay! We will just miss each other.

Maroo, thanks for the new thread!

Jo, the stroller bags sound fun! I'm not a sewer, but there are so many fun ideas of things to make that I think I will give it a go.

I just posted in Jenna's PTR, but things are not going terribly well with our trip planning. We have been waiting for nearly two weeks to get confirmation that we can extend. I thought that we would hear something by now, even if it was just a verbal confirmation (it didn't take this long to get the wish approved and to get dates!). Second, I realized yesterday that the day we leave is Jenna's first ever dance recital, that she is very excited about. Of course, I am the one that gave MAW this date!! I feel awful. I have asked the wish granters to see if it would be possible to delay our trip one day, but I feel like that is asking a lot, so I'm not sure it will happen. Almost anything else and I would be ok missing, but she is so excited (of course she is more excited about the wish trip, so there is some consolation).

Dr. Said she didn't think Talia would get much out of the trip, but she would sign off on it if I felt otherwise. I FEEL OTHERWISE!! Looks like Talia's back in the game.

They do seem fun... Especially fun with the idea that I won't have to rummage through bags every time Ja wants a snack! She just never reset to normal eating after that first month of steroids.

Boo to the dance recital. I understand how big it is when they can return to activities and start doing normal stuff. Moving the date by one date (have you heard if the tickets are booked?) and the extension are two separate things, though. Don't be afraid to ask. It's worth a shot! If it doesn't work, will the recital have a dress rehearsal a day or two before?

AWESOME! I'm sure Talia will enjoy it and the trip also is an opportunity for your whole family to travel and make memories!

Taliasmom, I'm so happy for you! What a great day!!

I never ever thought about dress rehearsal, duh!! That will be just as fun for her. I am feeling so much better now! I am normally not such a worrier - I think that I just want to over compensate sometimes since she had to miss out on so much.
